Series 1 (2005)[edit]

The Belgian edition of X Factor started screening in late 2005 on vtm. The judges were Kris Wauters, Jean Blaute and Liliane Saint-Pierre; the series was hosted by Koen Wauters.

The winner of season one was Udo Mechels from Nossegem and the runner up was The Cappaert Sisters (Annelies & Sarah Cappaert) from Tongeren. Contestant Robin Danneels had to quit the show due to being hospitalized for his back pain. Therefore Ivann could return to sing in the contest.
