Rihanna and Kylie Minogue are expected to join previously confirmed performers One Direction and Emeli Sande at The X Factor UK live final this weekend.

'Live While We're Young' singers One Direction are also expected to make an appearance on The X Factor UK for the series finale, after first performing live at the O2 Arena for the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball 2012 (8th December).
