The eleventh season of the tengaged version of The X Factor was announced on June 12, 2020 at the season finale of The X Factor: The All Stars. Contestants applications for this season opened on June 15, 2020 once the full panel was revealed the day prior. The season premiered on June 18, 2020.

Tommy and Nehemiah returned for their eleventh and seventh seasons respectively. After two seasons, Taylor stepped down as a judge. Chris also stepped down after returning for last season. Like last season, there were open auditions for the third and fourth judge seats accepting applications from both past and new judges. Jack was revealed as a returning judge, originally being on the panel for the third season of the panel, marking a return after a seven season hiatus. Michael was revealed as a new judge the same day.

This season the format remained unchanged from the previous season. The lifeline vote which was introduced at the end of The Showcases in Season 10 will be returning. The public of tengaged voted for which of the unsuccessful acts from The Showcases that they wanted to see join the live shows. The one act with the most votes would join their judge assigned to them during The Showcases making this the second season to feature a Top 13. This season, each mentor selected two of their eliminated acts to battle in the lifeline vote.

The season was won by Twenty One Two (Moviemusicguy123) mentored by newcomer judge Jack, giving him his first win.

 Selection Process Edit

The applications for the eleventh season of The X Factor opened on June 15, 2020. It has been stated that the auditions round will remain the same as seasons past. Each hopeful had to receive a majority 3 or 4 'YES' votes from the judges to make it through to the next stage of the competition: The Judges' Judgement.
