X Factor guest performers confirmed for Christmas-themed semi-final
It’s the X Factor semi-finals this weekend and the show has some suitably big-name stars performing to mark the occasion.
The X Factor final is nearly here now that we have dwindled down to just four remaining contestants and, with it being Christmas Week this weekend, ITV bosses have gone the extra mile to give us a real showstopping semi-final.
As ever, the Sunday night results show will feature two performances from popular artists in the music industry and this week we have a real corker of a line-up.
First up we have Swedish singing sensation Zara Larsson, who has delivered massive hits such as “Lush Life” and “Never Forget You”. Zara has become an international success over the past year and will be performing her new single “Ain’t My Fault” this weekend.
However, the performance we’re itching to see is from the one and only Lady Gaga! Gaga will be making an appearance on Sunday to sing her new single “Million Reasons”, which is from her new album Joanne.
The global superstar is not one to put on a half-hearted show and we can’t wait to see all the weird and wonderful things she’ll be bringing to the stage this time around.
Hopefully, Gaga will give us the injection of entertainment needed after Honey G’s exit last weekend. After being voted into the bottom two for the second week running last Sunday, the X Factor judges decided it was finally time for Honey to go.
The controversial rapper faced the sing-off against 5 After Midnight and delivered an enthusiastic rendition of “California Love” by 2Pac in the sing-off. However, she was unable to match 5 After Midnight, whose heartfelt performance of Labrinth’s “Beneath Your Beautiful” won over the judges.
We’re now left with Matt Terry, Emily Middlemas, Saara Aalto and 5 After Midnight and next week they will be getting in the Crimbo spirit with some festive tunes for Christmas Week!
X Factor continues Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
