The X Factor 2 is the second season of the reality music competition based on the original UK series, with the purpose of finding a star singer. This season, however, changed its format from the first by having no well-known singers be on the show, as opposed to last season which had all successful celebrities. The season was hosted by soap opera star Eileen Davidson and added LL Cool J. Julianne Hough and Ricky Martin both returned as mentors, while Colbie Caillat, Jeff Timmons, and Ludacris were replaced by Kandi Burruss and Benji Madden.

Madden mentored the teens, Hough mentored the Young Adults, Burruss mentored the Over 25's, and Martin mentored the groups.

After 9 weeks of competition, Lacy Lane was crowned winner, and Ricky Martin was crowned winning mentor, with Marco Salazar as Runner-Up.
