A host of big name celebs are being lined up for The X Factor 2013 this year.

The live shows start next month and producers are already working on securing some of the most popular performers in win viewers.

According to the Daily Star, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Susan Boyle and One Direction have already agreed to perform on the Sunday night's results shows.

They'll no doubt be joined by last year's champ James Arthur and group Union J, while Robbie Williams will also be performing and Xtra Factor host Olly Murs will return.

Meanwhile, the paper claims that X Factor boss Simon Cowell has produced a hit list of stars he wants to book for the tenth series, and it's rather ambitious.

The names include Beyonce, Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan, Cher - the real one - and Britney Spears

It was previously claimed that bosses were also after Miley Cyrus following her controversial VMA performance.

"X Factor never miss an opportunity to exploit a situation, so the moment Miley put on THAT routine at the VMAs, producers put the wheels in motion to try to sign her up," a source told The Sun newspaper last week. “But they can’t have her doing anything so raunchy on a Sunday night.

“They want to be edgy, but at the end of the day The X Factor is a family show, and before the watershed.”
