The X Factor final Press Conference which took place yesterday, revealed all the exciting plans for this weekend’s X Factor final at Wembley Arena!
The one aspect of the final I tend to look forward to the most each year is the duets – but this year it is set to be an all new format. Instead of the finalists performing a duet with various artists, this time they will be performing with their own mentors! So no pressure Gary, Kelly and Tulisa! Ironically I think it’s the judges that are going to be judged – a taste of their own damn medicine – and it would surely be shameful if they get upstaged by the amateurs! (hehehe)
So which songs will the duets be performing…
Well Gary has confirmed that he and Marcus will be singing Billy Joel’s ‘Always A Woman’ which is said to be dedicated to the finalist’s mum. (They’re gonna shut it DOWN!)
Tulisa and her “little muffins” will be performing a mash-up of Alicia Key’s ‘Empire State Of Mind’ and ‘If I Ain’t Got You’. (Yep they’re sure to bring the house DOWN with that one).
And finally, Amelia Lily and Kelly Rowland will be performing Ike and Tina Turner’s classic ‘River Deep, Mountain High’ – and in the words of Kelly Rowland, they’re gonna “put it DOWN!”.
So can comeback kid Amelia Lily take the winner’s crown? Can cutie Marcus steal even more of the viewers’ hearts and become the X Factor champion? Can Little Mix win the competition and make X Factor history!?
And to top off the weekend’s events, Coldplay, Michael Buble, Leona Lewis, One Direction and JLS will be gracing the stages on Sunday night! I for one cannot WAIT for the phenomenon that is the X Factor final to commence!
So the four ‘deserving’ X Factor finalists revealed in a press conference earlier who they will duet with in Saturday’s big finale. This is the part of the competition that I specially love the most and I am always looking forward to so it was great to finally hear which guest artists will be gracing the X Factor stage alongside the contestants this year…
I am particular excited to hear that Matt will duet with Rihanna – I can totally imagine that being an incredible performance! The gorgeous Rebecca will duet with Christina Aguilera who I believe is an amazing vocalist with one of the most powerful voices – a voice that may over-shadow our Rebecca’s? Hmmm. Then we have Cher who will duet with Will.i.am, as expected – looking forward to seeing how that will turn out – It will be extremely good, or really terrible. Lastly we have One Direction who announced that they will duet with Robbie Williams – the fact that the boys felt the need to repeat their duet at the end says it all – that is so dead. But I’m sure the boys will still do well.
But anyways, I am definitely excited about Saturdays X Factor final weekend and watching all of the performances, and of course, finding out who will be crowned the winner of X Factor 2010!
