Robert Pattinson is backing Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho to win 'The X Factor'.
The 'Twilight' heartthrob has revealed he is such a big fan of the eccentric Brazilian he plans to turn up to the studios wearing a 'Vote Wagner' T-shirt if he makes it to the finals of the ITV1 show .
Robert also thinks the flirty 54-year-old singer is "the sort of guy you'd do a drunken duet with at a family wedding", and admitted he loves seeing judge Simon Cowell squirm as the public continue to vote for Wagner.
He said: "I love this guy. He doesn't have the best voice, but he enjoys what he does and I respect him for that. It's great just to see him wind Simon Cowell up."
The hunky actor - most famed for playing vampire Edward Cullen in the 'Twilight' franchise - also revealed 'X Factor' judge Dannii Minogue has invited him to a recording of the live show.
He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I really hope Wagner is still in by the final. If filming allows I'll be there, and I guarantee I'll be wearing a 'Vote Wagner' T-shirt."
The British star is just one of a growing number of Wagner fans who are determined to keep the former teacher in the TV contest.
