With no duets actually confirmed yet for the X Factor final, we could genuinely end up with the judges performing with their final acts. Eeek!

We caught up with X Factor choreographer Brian Freidman at the Style For Stroke event held at London’s Café KaiZen, and he told us which of the judges he thinks would get up and sing with their acts in the final.

Brian said: “Oh god, have you ever seen Simon Cowell perform? No, Simon would never perform, Louis Walsh would never perform. It would be great to see Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Mel B do that, if it’s a possibility, you never know.”

We asked Brian if he thought Cheryl would be nervous about performing with Lauren Platt after the criticism she received over her pre-recorded live performance of her single I Don’t Care.

Brian said: “I don’t know, Cheryl loved her performance, everyone else had more criticism than she actually did or cared about, she loved it.”

Tune in tomorrow night at 8pm on ITV to catch the X Factor semi-finals!
