Rihanna will duet with Matt Cardle, Christina Aguilera will sing with Rebecca Ferguson, will.i.am will team up with Cher Lloyd and Robbie Williams will perform with One Direction on Saturday's '(11.12.10) X Factor' final
Rihanna will duet with Matt Cardle on 'The X Factor' final on Saturday night (11.12.10).
The 'Only Girl (In The World)' singer - who performed on the programme earlier this year - has agreed to be paired up with the Essex painter and decorator in a bid to help him win the hit ITV1 show, it was confirmed at a press conference this afternoon (08.12.10).
Christina Aguilera - who will appear on the TV talent show to promote a new song from her film 'Burlesque' - will sing with Cheryl Cole's finalist, mum-of-two Rebecca Ferguson.
Meanwhile, Cheryl's other protege Cher Lloyd will follow in her mentor's footsteps by teaming up with Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am and Take That star Robbie Williams will perform with Simon Cowell's boy band One Direction.
Cher told BANG Showbiz: "I want to go out with a bang. You know what I mean? It's not like I'm going to win, let's think about it correctly. On the other hand, I've got Mr will.i.am with me so I'm just going to rock it out."
The songs to be performed by the international stars and pop hopefuls have not yet been confirmed.
Some changes have been made to this year's format with four finalists instead of three. One person will be eliminated on Saturday night while another will leave the competition halfway through Sunday's (12.12.10) show.
It has also been announced that all of the contestants will have an individual winner's song instead of competing for the same one.
