X Factor 2012 final: Nicole Scherzinger, James Arthur tease duet

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2012)

Nicole Scherzinger and James Arthur have revealed a few little tidbits about their duet on the X Factor 2012 final this weekend.

For the second series in a row, the finalists will be duetting with their mentors in the last live show of the series.

With two acts in the final three, Nicole has been working extra hard with her boys and preparing her performances.

Speaking at a press event for this weekend's final yesterday, Nicole revealed she and James would be taking on a new song together.

“I specifically chose the song, I didn’t want to do one of my own songs," Nicole revealed.

James however confessed he would have loved to have performed one of Nicole's tracks alongside her, or maybe even sung a bit of the Pussycat Doll's top hit.

He said: "I would do a cover of Don’t Hold Your Breath and I wanted to do Don’t Cha.”
