X1 was formed through the Produce X 101 survival program which aired on Mnet from May 3rd to July 19th, 2019. From 101 trainees, Mnet selected 11 of the 20 trainees who entered the final round through the voting of fans. Meanwhile, the last member referred to as rank X was chosen from the remaining trainees and had the highest vote ranking, if combined from all the episodes that had aired. All X1 members were announced by a live broadcast on Mnet which was held on July 19th, 2019.

After the program ended, X1 signed a contract with Swing Entertainment, the agency that previously oversaw Wanna One. The members will also promote as X1 members for 5 years.

On August 19th, 2019, X1 announced its fandom name “ONE IT”. ONE IT has two different meanings, namely “want it X1” as the first syllable of the word “want” in Korean (원 하다), and sounds like “one” in English.
