X Factor 2012: No Doubt and Rita Ora to perform this weekend

Rita Ora

Rita Ora and No Doubt will be performing on The X Factor 2012 next week, it's been confirmed.

Newly reunited US band No Doubt will make their first ever appearance on the series, performing new single Looking Hot.

The group tweeted this week: "JUST ANNOUNCED: @NoDoubt will perform live on @TheXFactor #UK on Sunday, November 4th! Tune in at 8PM on @ITV! #Breaking"

Rita Ora will join the group on stage, also making her first appearance on the show.

The 21-year-old singer will be seen performing her new single Shine Ya Light on the show on Sunday, November 4.

Rita was a guest judge on the show earlier this year, appearing at the London auditions.

“I just want to discover someone that knows themselves; I want to discover someone that’s confident, because that’s what makes a star in my eyes,” Rita declared before auditions started at the O2 Arena.

Rita, who was a big fan of Rylan Clark at his first audition, claimed: “It’s not just about the voice; it’s definitely about you and what you create.”

Speaking about her experience on the judging panel, Rita described it as "surreal".

“It was surreal, but incredible. I’ve been watching it on TV for so long and now I’m sitting on the panel two singles deep – it’s definitely a statement.”

The R.I.P. singer explained: “I felt like it was my moment to help anyone who would take it. I wasn’t there to judge, I just wanted to enjoy people’s imaginations and creativity and try and direct it in the right way.”

The X Factor airs next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV1.
