How long is the vote on The X Factor open for?
It varies. On Saturday night, the vote is open for roughly 12 to 14 minutes, whilst on Sunday night the window is a lot smaller – from about four to five minutes. However, it seems to vary every week.
Why is there another vote on Sunday’s X Factor?
After the act with the lowest votes has been eliminated on Sunday night’s show and the act who won the most votes is revealed, the vote then opens for a second time in a new twist dubbed the Prize Fight. For this section, you can only vote via the app.
This is when the singer who won the most votes on Saturday and the act who won the most votes from Sunday go head to head. For about five minutes, the voting opens again and the singer who collects the most votes in this window wins a ‘money-can’t-buy-prize’, which has so far included a trip to New York to meet Pink and a session in a recording studio with a top producer who’s worked with the likes of One Direction and Ariana Grande.
