It is the last call to access the Live Show from X Factor 2022 (WATCH THE SPECIAL)the last obstacle before having the certainty of being able to tread the stage of Live. Thursday 20 October, on Sky and streaming on NOWthe Last Callthe final step of the selections in which the judges Fedez, Ambra Angiolini, Dargen D’Amico And Rkomi they decide who is in and who is out, and there is no appeal. Backstage, to collect the hot comments of judges and artists, as well as to mark the times of this crucial phase, Francesca Michielin. For the first time in the history of X Factorthe judges will have to make these tough choices in front of the public of the Allianz Cloud in Milan: the “fifth judge” of the program, the Sky Original show produced by Fremantle, will observe the behavior of the judges and comment with whistles and applause on the decisive choices that will be made at the table. But that’s not all: for the first time each judge will make their own decisive selection in front of his colleagues not busy at the table, who will watch what is happening in the studio and express their opinions from a room in the backstage. From this moment, therefore, the four judges officially become “opponents” and play with their cards exposednot only in the choice of the artists of their team but also in the judgments given on the other judges, on the other teams and on their components.

The mechanism for identifying the artists competing this year is unprecedented: each judge will find the 6 artists promoted during their Bootcamp, who will once again be seated at the chairs they craved so much during the previous step. All six will perform, and it will be up to their judge to decide, from time to time, whether they can hold the chair if they have to get off the stage. At the end of Last Call, therefore, each of the four will have on stage only the trio that will officially make up their team, the three artists with whom they will arrive at the Live Show expected every Thursday, again on Sky and NOW, starting from 27 October.
