Take That and former contestant Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho are being lined up to appear on the 'X Factor' final.

The boy band will reportedly perform on Sunday night's (12.12.10) series finale, while band member Robbie is also strongly rumoured to sing on Saturday's show with finalists One Direction.

Christina Aguilera, Robbie Williams, will.i.am and Rihanna are also believed to be performing with the remaining acts in the competition, Matt Cardle, Cher Lloyd and Rebecca Ferguson.

However, ITV1 bosses are also said to be keen to secure an appearance from rapper Eminem alongside 17-year-old Cher after she gave rendition of his track 'Love The Way You Lie' last week.

Controversial Brazilian finalist Wagner - who was heavily criticised throughout his time on the show by the judges - will return to appear in a performance by each of the 12 acts who made it through to the live finals of the competition.

A source explained: "We've got lots of big names and big numbers on stage so it is going to be a nightmare to fit everyone in and accommodate all the dressing room space."

Meanwhile, music mogul Simon Cowell has warned the show's finalists they will have to raise the stakes for their performances for the final on Saturday, which will see one of the four finalists sent home after the two hour live show.

The insider added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Simon made it clear everything has to be perfect. He wants everything to run like clockwork, especially after the controversy last weekend. We are all in doing a full day and night on Friday now as well as working flat-out all weekend.

"He told the singers and us to raise our game for the final. It will be exhausting but we can pull it off."

Take That

The prototype boy band have re-lit their own fire and returned to cash in those nostalgia dollars, and have proved far more credible than any of us could have imagined. Now reduced to a three-piece as Jason Orange bows out but Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald soldier on.
