Leona Lewis Confirms 'X Factor' Final Performance, Will She Duet With Ché Chesterman?

With just days to go until ‘The X Factor’ final, an unlikely star has now confirmed her place among this year’s guest performers.

Despite a high-profile departure from Simon Cowell’s record label last year, former ‘X Factor’ champion Leona Lewis has announced that she’ll be taking to the stage at Wembley Arena, during Saturday’s live show.


Leona broke the news during a chat on Tuesday morning’s ‘Good Morning Britain’, appearing to hint to Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan that she'll be performing a duet, stating: “They asked me a couple of weeks ago… it’s a bit of a surprise actually, because it’s not just me.”

Given that Rita Ora is already confirmed to be performing with her last remaining act, Louisa Johnson, it seems likely that we can look forward to seeing Leona collaborating with Ché Chesterman this weekend.

While it’s not yet known who’ll be performing alongside this year’s other finalist, Reggie ‘N’ Bollie, 2014 runner-up Fleur East put herself forward for the job during a recent interview.

One Direction and Coldplay have already been confirmed for this year’s live final, with reports suggesting Simon is also keen to snag Adele for a guest appearance.

‘The X Factor’ final kicks off this Saturday night, at 8pm on ITV, with the winner being announced the following night.
