X Factor final duets 2016! Which stars will the finalists be singing with?


It's The X Factor 2016 final this weekend and that means there should be some celebrity duets, but who is being lined up?

Last year saw Rod Stewart, Craig David and Rita Ora all teaming up with the final three but which stars will this year see?

Matt Terry

According to the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper, Matt Terry was lined up to sing James Bond theme Writing’s On The Wall together with Sam Smith, having previously performed the song on his own.

However it's said that Sam has pulled out of the potential duet despite being lined up to make a guest performance in the final.


Matt was then rumoured to be singing with James Arthur but this has also now reportedly fallen through.

Matt's mentor Nicole Scherzinger is now the most likely to prove to be his duet partner instead.

5 After Midnight

As for 5 After Midnight, could we be getting a throwback to girl band v boy band week? The trio revealed on the Xtra Factor they hoped to duet with former X Factor winners Little Mix, who are confirmed to perform this weekend.

However the trio have also been linked to a performance with The Weeknd as well as reigning X Factor winner Louisa Johnson, together with Clean Bandit.

Saara Aalto

Finally, Saara Aalto is set to sing with American Idol runner up Adam Lambert.


The Finnish performer, who held a homecoming gig in Helsinki on Tuesday night, said previously of a potential duet with Adam: "He’s so theatrical and we could do a big number together.

With all the duets yet to be officially confirmed, for now all we can do is wait until The X Factor airs LIVE this Saturday night on ITV at 8PM from Wembley Arena.

All three finalists will perform their duets before lines freeze and one act is eliminated. The top two will go on to Sunday night's show where the winner will be crowned.
