The 'X Factor' hopefuls are preparing for Beatles-themed performances on Saturday night (20.11.10), with Katie Waissel billed to sing aptly-titled track 'Help!'

'The X Factor' camp is preparing for a Beatles-themed night on Saturday (20.11.10).

Aspiring stars from the ITV1 show have been given a selection of songs by the Fab Four - Sir Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison - for the evening, which comes just hours after the band agreed to sell their classic tracks on iTunes.

Controversial Katie Waissel - who has found herself in the bottom two on four separate occasions - is rumoured to be singing the aptly-titled 'Help!', while wildcard Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho will be belting out a medley of 'Hippy Hippy Shake', 'Hey Jude' and 'Get Back'.

Meanwhile, Cher Lloyd has snapped up classic tune 'Imagine', Matt Cardle will be rocking out with 'Come Together' and Rebecca Ferguson has been given 'Yesterday'.

One Direction's 'All You Need Is Love', Mary Byrne's 'Something' and Paije Richardson's 'Let It Be' complete the Beatles line-up.

Elsewhere, the 'X Factor' hopefuls visited wounded troops at the Headley Court rehab complex in Surrey yesterday (17.11.10), as they prepare to perform and launch their charity single - a cover of David Bowie's 'Heroes' - on Sunday.

Mary told The Sun newspaper: "On Sunday, when I'm singing that single I'll be thinking of every single person I met at the centre. These people are heroes and deserve the people out there to be backing them and really putting money into this."
