“For years we have divided everyone into categories. Today a new adventure begins ». These are the words with which Ludovico Tersigni kicks off the new edition of X Factor, the second in times of Covid, ready to debut on Thursday 16 September at 9.15 pm on Sky Uno and, exceptionally, in simulcast on TV8. The most important revolution of this new era, together with the passing of the baton between Alessandro Cattelan and Tersigni, lies precisely in the elimination of the categories that, since X Factor goes on the air, has always forced the judges to focus on a specific group of talents without being able to independently choose the artists beyond being Under Woman, Under Men, Over or Groups.

A music without borders, without distinctions and without adjectives will therefore be what we will see on the stage of the Auditions which, as last year, will no longer be without an audience, no longer due to a choice forced by the anti-Covid directives, but due to the desire to preserve the intimacy of the meeting between the aspiring competitors and the judges who, even in this round, will be Emma, Mika, Hell Raton e Manuel Agnelli.

“We wanted to bring music back to the center without distraction,” said Nils Hartman, Senior Director Original Production Sky Italia, during the press conference to present the new edition. Intention shared by Eliana Guerra, curator of X Factor 2021, which this year has chosen to dare not only with categories – “The boys present themselves as people, as human beings” – but also in identifying a landlord, Tersigni, who has proven his worth in successful films and TV series as an actor (see SHAME Italy e Summertime), but who had never tried his hand at a presenter before. “After Alessandro, we wanted to bring another kind of story: the story of an insider “ Guerra said. As for the jury, all four artists behind the counter expressed their enthusiasm to continue to be part of this great family because “we live in situations that help us to improve”.

After the driving force of many young people to write their own texts and put their fears and insecurities into it, and after the global exploit of Måneskin, a X Factor it was necessary to support change rather than fight it, and this is precisely the star from which this new edition has chosen: tear down the walls, create a space in which to feel free. One thing that the Italian edition, produced by Fremantle, has courageously carried out resisting the test of the original English version which, at least for now, has been put on stand-by. «The path of X Factor in Italy it is unique in the world: what happens in other countries is part of other dynamics ». According to Mika, however, the change he spoke of X Factor Italy it starts from further away: from young people who no longer take inspiration from television as they did in the past, but who «use X Factor like a window to tell their artistic proposal ». We are now running out, and we can’t wait to open this window.
