Andrea Faustini is planning an 'X Factor' "surprise".

The 20-year-old singer - who has become known for belting out power ballads on this year's series of the ITV singing competition - is hoping to bring something "quite different" to the stage when he performs on the live show this Saturday (29.11.14).

Andrea - who is set to sing a rendition of Mariah Carey's hit 'Hero' and one other track - told 'Loose Women' presenters Coleen Nolan, Gloria Hunniford, Linda Lusardi and Jane Moore on their show this morning(26.11.14): "This week I have two songs. The one they chose is Hero by Mariah Carey. The other one is quite different from anything I've done before. It's a surprise."

One person Andrea is hoping to impress with his upcoming performance is show judge Simon Cowell, who has become more critical of the Italian-born singer in recent weeks.

Andrea is determined to prove the 55-year-old music mogul wrong and is taking his harsh words on board to help improve his performance.

He said: "He's having some doubts. I want to enjoy myself so much and I don't want to think about anything and I want to sing my heart out. I do hope that Simon will change his mind.

"Obviously it's not good but it's fine because I have to learn everything about this job and improve myself."

Meanwhile, Andrea - who recently confessed he has only ever been kissed by a dolphin while on holiday in Mexico - was treated to a peck on the cheek by Coleen Nolan, who said: "That's evidence."

Linda Lusardi took the joke one step further, planting a kiss on the singer's lips.

She said: "I am going to do better than that"

Their co-host Gloria added: "In all those journalist interviews from here on in [when] they ask you if you've ever been kissed, you can say from two loose women!"
