Fleur East, Ben Haenow and Andrea Faustini will all perform 'Rule The World' on 'The X Factor' this weekend, as the show reaches its conclusion
Take That will perform 'Rule The World' alongside the three finalists on 'The X Factor' on Saturday (13.12.14).
The 'These Days' hitmakers - Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - will take to the stage to perform with Fleur East, Ben Haenow and Andrea Faustini.
A show insider explained: "It's really unusual for producers to team up the final three contestants, as this is when they stand or fall as individuals.
"But they wanted to spice things up. So rather than having them sing two songs each and a duet, they'll each be performing a duet and then this collaboration."
The wannabe popstars will join the remaining members of Take That for a rendition of their 2006 hit single, which they also sang at the London Olympics closing ceremony.
The source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's bound to go down really well with the audience at the arena and will make great TV."
However, Take That face a race against time to make the show at London's Wembley Arena as they will be travelling from a Radio Brocken gig in Berlin, Germany.
The source added: "It's going to be a race against the clock to make it to London. They cannot be delayed for a second, so they're going to have a very nervous team around them as they rush to their private jet."
One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and 'All About That Bass' hitmaker Meghan Trainor are also set to perform duets with the final contestants over the weekend.
