Glavnaya Stsena (Russian: Главная сцена; meaning "Main Stage"), is the third Russian version of the international vocal talent show X Factor. All participants pass through the public auditions. The top prize is a personal tour across Russia.

Main judge Arthur Gasparyan also announced that finalists would have a chance of taking part in the Eurovision selection process, to represent Russia.[1]


The project has 4 judges for criticising the performance, and 5 judges to take care of a participants chosen, however if necessary, they may also criticise a participant (Walter Afanasieff is in both sides). When contestants pass the auditions, they go to the judge-producer stage, where famous music personalities in Russia take over. Judges include famous figures notably Walter Afanasieff. Once a week the team gives a concert, with one participants who judges think is the weakest leave the project. Every producer takes to the final three chosen participants, from where the best reach the super final.[2]

In initial stages, judges vote "yes" or "no" with three "no"s resulting in the participant leaving the project. But a producer may say his own word if he wishes to use the privilege saving a participant from being eliminated. The remaining eligible contestants pass to the next stage. If opinion is split half-half, then the decision goes to the judges-producers.

In later stages, each judge-producer chooses the participants in five musical genres [3]

For the preparation of the participants for the performances, producers may have a chance to invite the vocal masters, dance masters, stylists and other specialists for help.

Project's history

It is not the first time Russian television tries to adopt the British version of The X Factor. In 2005—2007, Russia had its own version called Sekret Uspekha[4][5] which had 2 seasons, however it was not as popular or highly rated as compared to Fabrika Zvezd, which resulted in the project being canceled after 2 seasons in 2007.

In 2011-2013, a new Russian version of X Factor was launched named Faktor A.[6] It was named in reference to the star judge on the show the famous Russian singer Alla Pugacheva).[7] All versions of X Factor in Russia were translated in «Russia-1».
