‘X Factor’ UK 2014 Finale: Major Concert Happening? One Direction, Demi Lovato, Sam Smith & Ed Sheeran to Perform
"The X Factor" will be holding their grand finale Saturday at the Wembley Arena and announced the musical acts and special performances of the show, such as One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor and more, Digital Spy reported.
Fans and viewers tuning in to "The X Factor" this Saturday will get to watch Ben Haenow, Andrew Faustini and Fleur East perform on the stage one last time before one of them gets crowned as the winner of "The X Factor" 2014. Aside from the talented trio though, other musicians will also take the stage.
"The X Factor" alums One Direction will be taking the stage and will most likely perform a track off their recent album "Four," according to Unreality TV. "All About That Bass" singer Meghan Trainor will also be appearing, as well as Sam Smith, whose debut album has performed well on the charts and eveb broke music records.
Ed Sheeran, who already performed previously on the show, will be returning for another performance, while Demi Lovato and Olly Murs will perform a duet, most likely off Murs' new album, "Up."
Rumors also have it that Rihanna will be making an appearance on "The X Factor" with a new single, but so far there has been no concrete news on whether or not she will take part in the finale, according to Unreality TV.
However, there is a chance the singer's appearance is being kept hush, hush as a surprise. Celebrity-finalists duets are common during the finale and Rihanna may or may not be performing alongside one of the finalists.
Simon Cowell and Mel B are the final two mentors left in the competition, with Cowell having two finalists in Haenow and East and Mel B with Faustini, according to Yahoo. Faustini landed at the bottom two last week and had a sing-off against Lauren Platt, managing to outperform her to join the final three.
East had a rocky start when she first joined the show with a not so impressive audition song, according to Mirror. She managed to turn things over during the Judges' House, impressing Cowell and landing herself a spot on his team.
Haenow received numerous criticisms during his run in the show and most of them were for his dance moves. After taking all the feedback, he impressed Cowell enough to get an invitation to his team and has performed his best since.
Faustini, on the other hand, first impressed with his rendition of "Who's Loving You" by the Jackson 5 during his audition. Mel B took him under her wing and now he remains as the former Spice Girl member's final act.
"The X Factor" finale will air on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. on ITV.
