Like the real life series, series 1 consisted of two stages; Judges Houses & Live Shows, Twelve contestants competed in the live shows while the rest were eliminated at Judges Houses.  

Incidents Edit

  • On the 28th December, just days before the first week, it was announced that Alexandra would withdraw from the competition having advanced from Judges houses. As a result, it was announced one day later that Scott (DanielTheFreeElf) would replace her, making him the only participant to date to not go through Judges Houses.
  • In Weeks 2-3 of the Live Shows, Sharon Osbourne was absent due to sickness. In these weeks, Shawn Mendes appeared in her absence, voting on Sharon's behalf and taking care of the Over 25's. Sharon returned in Week 4.
  • In Week 4, Sharon Osbourne sent Aleks home, making her the second mentor to send their own act home in the series so far, after Halsey sent home her group, Entertaining Glory, in Week 1.
  • In Week 4, Riley stormed off stage following his performance after claiming the song was 'too hard' for him after messing up the lyrics. In the same week, Aleks was criticized by the judges for 'putting no effort' into the competition, having not rehearsed, had no staging and didn't use his lyrics. He was sent home by the judges in a 4-0 majority.
  • In Week 5, an audio issue forced James C to change songs 30 minutes before his performance to "Euphoria" instead of "La La Love". This was due to audio issues in where ROBLOX deleted the file that Scozcp291 had prepared for him to perform.

Judges & Presenters Edit

On the same day as the series being confirmed, it was announced that Olly Murs, Sharon Osbourne and Adam Lambert would become the first season judges. It was also announced that the fourth judge would be decided via an application process that took roughly two weeks. It was confirmed that Halsey would be the fourth judge. Throughout the live shows, Sharon Osbourne was absent a total of three times. Which led to Shawn Mendes filling in, he voted on her behalf and looked after her acts despite.


On the day of Halsey being confirmed as judge, it was announced that Caroline Flack and Saara Aalto would become presenters. While Flack would be the main presenter, Aalto would be the back-up presenter and would fill in on the event of her absence.
