Format[edit]

Auditions[edit]

The auditions take place in front of the judges and a live audience at different cities across the Romania. Unlike on X Factor, at any time during the audition, the judges may show disapproval to the act by pressing a buzzer which lights a large red "X" on the stage, indicating that they particularly dislike the act and do not wish the performance to continue. If all the judges press their buzzers, the act must end immediately.

Callbacks[edit]

After the auditions, the judges have to whittle almost 200 successful acts down to just 48 (series 1), 60 (series 2 ). All of the performers are called back to discover if they have progressed to the live semi-finals.

Out of hundreds of contestants, only 200 won the local selection, having 1 or no X-es. The jury decided only 48 finalists. According to Pro TV's website, each contestant that qualified for the semifinals, were voted by the general public through text messages.[3] The semi-finals were broadcast in four editions: In 1 April, 2 April respectively 8 April – 9 April 2011. In each edition, twelve contestants had to pass the juries and get as many votes from the general public in order to proceed further to the finals, the last step to the grand prize.[4] Twelve acts were qualified for the grand final. The votes were given only by phone or sms, the voting started after the last semifinal, stopped during the final performances, and started again after the last performance.
