X Factor 2016 final duets! Who will the finalists be singing with tonight?!

XFactor final duets rumours!


It's The X Factor 2016 final TONIGHT but who has been lined up for the celebrity duets? Here are all the rumours!

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

Well nothing has been confirmed just yet but here are the latest rumours..

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.


Matt was then rumoured to be singing with James Arthur, who had been lined up to sing with Emily Middlemas had she made the final, but this has also fallen through.

Matt's now set to sing with Nicole Scherzinger saying in the week: "I'm not sure what I want to sing - hopefully we'll be on the same page and say the same song."

5 After Midnight

5 After Midnight have also had duet problems. As of Thursday they had NO duet partner lined up.

It's been revealed that the trio were set to sing with a newly reformed Spice Girls but scheduled clashes meant it couldn't go ahead.

5 After Midnight's duet has also been rumoured to be with either Little Mix or The Weeknd, who are both confirmed to perform this weekend, but both of these options also now appear to not be going ahead.

Instead the most recent rumours suggest 5 After Midnight will team up with reigning X Factor winner Louisa Johnson, together with Clean Bandit.

Saara Aalto

Saara Aalto's duet seems to be settled and she is set to sing with American Idol runner up Adam Lambert.

The Finnish performer said previously of a potential duet with Adam: "He’s so theatrical and we could do a big number together.

Rumour has it the pair will sing a cover of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.


Smiling, a giggling Saara said: "My lips are sealed! I can't say anything, let's see what happens..."

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 plus a new solo song 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.
