X Factor finalist Sam Bailey will take to the stage alongside global superstar Beyoncé if she beats her rivals to claim the winning spot, it has been announced.
The winner of the show will take a support slot on Beyoncé's Mrs Carter tour in the UK next year.
Sam - a former prison guard from Leicester - must beat fellow finalists Luke Friend and Nicholas McDonald in the conclusion of the TV talent show this weekend to claim the X Factor crown.
The news was broken in a video recorded for the contestants by Beyoncé herself.
In it, she said:
Hey, I just wanna say good luck to all The X Factor finalists and announce a very special prize to the winner.
The winner of this year’s X Factor will be joining me on the Mrs Carter tour, coming back to Europe in February.
I can’t wait to see you soon. Good luck!
