XFactor 2012: Ella Henderson for Beyonce duet if she makes final

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Ella Henderson is being lined up to duet with Beyonce, if she makes it through to the live final.

The Daily Mirror reports this morning that 16-year-old Ella has been tipped to sing with the Love On Top hitmaker if she gets through to December's live final in Manchester.

Beyonce previously appeared on the show back in 2008, singing alongside eventual winner Alexandra Burke.

And bosses hope that drafting in the US star will guarantee top ratings for the final show.

“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 bang," a source told the tabloid. “The last time she sang with Alexandra it was incredible and we hope to have her sing a duet again.

“Ella is the one most likely to sing with her because hearing their voices together would be just amazing."

The insider added: “The show is still in it’s early stages, but Simon hasn’t wasted any time in trying to line up acts for the final. He wants to get in there before Strictly.”

With only two live shows down it seems rather premature to be discussing the final, but it would be more shocking if Ella doesn't make it.

The teenager has made X Factor history by becoming the odds on to win already, after just two live shows.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Ella's the first act in X Factor history to be an odds-on shot before the second live show has even aired. Louis's integrity as a judge has come under fire this week and the odds suggest it won't be long before he's eliminated from the show either."


The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV1.

This weekend will see the remaining eleven finalists singing tracks with a Club Classics theme.
