The 'If I Was A Boy' singer is one of several stars being lined up for a slot on the ITV1 show's final.

Beyonce and Cher have both been rumoured for appearances on the upcoming final of The X Factor UK this December.

The 'Love On Top' singer and 'Believe' icon Cher are heavily rumoured to be in line for a performance slot on the show's finale, with both liked to a potential duet with contestant Ella Henderson if she makes it that far in the competition.

"It's an X Factor tradition to get great names for the final and Simon was determined to pull out all the stops," an insider on The X Factor UK told The Mirror. "Cher is a legend and The Killers are massive. Everyone's thrilled."

Claims of Cher's involvement with The X Factor final come fresh from reports Beyonce is also linked to the show, following her memorable duet with eventual winner Alexandra Burke back in 2008.

"We are delighted to get Beyonce on the show because she is such a huge crowd pleaser and will make sure the final goes with a band," a source also told the publication. "Ella is the one most likely to sing with her because hearing their voices together would be just amazing."

Beyonce is currently working on her fifth studio album after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy at the start of 2012, and she and husband Jay-Z lost a case to trademark their child's name this week due to a Boston based wedding company sharing the same name.

The X Factor continues this Saturday (27th October) with celebrity guests for the live final yet to be officially announced.
