In a global first, FOX, FremantleMedia North America and Syco Entertainment are offering THE X FACTOR fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite acts using Shazam, one of the most popular music and TV apps on the planet and one of the Top 10 most-downloaded apps on the App StoreSM.

Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 6, fans of THE X FACTOR can take advantage of FOX's patent-pending SuperVote experience directly through the Shazam App, where they can also click to purchase songs performed by the acts, as well as the recording artists featured in-show during the broadcast. In addition, THE X FACTOR fans using Shazam will now be able to vote for their favorite acts, as well as access additional show videos and content that complement the show's media-rich sync-to-broadcast experience available through the official The X Factor USA app during the live telecasts.

"THE X FACTOR is that perfect marriage of music and television that Shazam users love. We are thrilled to work with FOX, Syco and FremantleMedia North America in this first-of-its-kind chance for THE X FACTOR fans to use the Shazam App to vote for their favorite acts," said Shazam CEO Rich Riley.

Sponsored by Honda across all digital platforms, online voting for THE X FACTOR begins immediately after the first live Top 12 performance show on Wednesday, Nov. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), on FOX. Viewers will be able to SuperVote - cast multiple votes at one time - via TheXFactorUSA.com, The X Factor USA app (data and message rates may apply), the Shazam App and Facebook at Facebook.com/TheXFactorUSA.

To SuperVote, fans can allocate any number of votes for one contestant or multiple contestants, for a total of 50 votes (across all online voting destinations), and in a unique interactive experience, they can adjust their vote selections as performances happen during the show. When the voting window officially opens, fans can submit their final votes - all at once. [Only fans with a registered Facebook account in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands will be able to cast their vote(s) online.]

In addition to online voting, fans will continue to be able to vote during the voting window via toll-free calling, as well as text messaging (standard text-messaging rates may apply).
