X Factor champ Sam Bailey is looking forward to performing alongside Beyonce at her tour date in Birmingham tonight.

The singer had originally been set to take up a full support slot on Beyonce's UK leg of her current world tour but the shows clashed with The X Factor's own live show, currently also touring the country.

But even if it's just the one date, it is bloody Beyonce that Sam will be warming up for.

"It doesn't feel real," she admits, "I think when I actually see her face to face that's when it'll hit me and I'll probably get sweaty palms and start to panic a bit.

"But she's impeccable, her voice is amazing. Every song shes ever done has been a hit and I cant wait to meet her, I'm so excited!"

Sam's expected to perform a similar set to the current X Factor tour with tracks including The Power Of Love, Clown, And I'm Telling You and her winner's song Skyscraper.

Meanwhile, Sam revealed she hoped to return to The X Factor this year and inspire the contestants.

"In a year's time I'd like to think I could come back to The X Factor next year and visit the other people and give them a bit of inspiration to how they can succeed, and how my story has been," she said. "I just want to keep going and keep grounded."
