Cher has agreed to take part in the final of 'X Factor' alongside The Killers and Beyonce Knowles

Cher has signed up to appear on 'X Factor'.

The legendary singer is believed to be so touched by Ella Henderson's version of her club hit 'Believe' - which she performed in the early stages of the show - she has agreed to take part in the final, in addition to The Killers.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's an 'X Factor' tradition to get great names for the final and Simon was determined to pull out all the stops. Fans won't be disappointed.

"Cher is a legend and The Killers are massive. Everyone's thrilled. There's something for all musical tastes."

Cher tweeted her joy at seeing Ella's stripped down version of her track and claimed it even moved her to tears.

She wrote: "Went on YouTube to see young girl sing Believe! Tears came to my eyes! So touching! A great version of a great song. We can share it!"

She is the third big name to sign up for the show, with Beyonce Knowles - who previously performed with winner Alexandra Burke in 2008 - reportedly agreeing to take part in the final in December.
