Bizarre Celebrity Mix For X Factor Final: Beyonce, Cher And The Killers

If you think that The X Factor is weird now (what with Rylan’s increasingly bizarre, camp stage productions, a grown man that apparently cannot stop shaking whenever Dermot O’Leary speaks to him and a weekly parade of non-entities, warming up for the one contestant that has anything even vaguely regarding any star quality)… just wait until we get to the final stages. According to The Metro, a heady mix of celebrity singers is being concocted for the final rounds, which may include Cher, Beyonce and The Killers.

If Cher seems like a strange choice, then cast your mind back a few weeks, when Ella Henderson performed a riveting version of the fish-netted wonder’s hit song ‘Believe,’ which had the X Factor judges in a state of rapture. It was such an astonishing transformation, that you almost couldn’t ‘believe’ that it was ‘Believe,’ in the first place. Perhaps the fact that she transformed the song so much suggests that she didn’t really like it in the first place, though? We wonder if the producers have considered that at all? Somehow, the thought of Ella and Cher duetting just feels a little… wrong. The Mirror have previously claimed that Beyonce would be joining Ella onstage. All of this is highly premature, of course, because we don’t even know who’s going to be in the final rounds just yet.

It seems highly unlikely that Ella won’t be in the final of course because – as we just suggested – she’s pretty much the only contestant in the live rounds with any solid, discernible talent. Having said that, though, there’s no accounting for taste, is there? After all, Rylan’s still in with a shot at the title, despite his apparent inability to hold a tune.
