Cheryl Cole will be the first artist to perform during this year’s live X Factor finals, says a report.
The 27-year-old is said to be planning to give her “raunchiest” performance ever to mark her new single status.
Sources told a tabloid newspaper that the Girls Aloud singer will perform `Promise This’, the first track off her second solo album. A source close to Cole told the Daily Star: “Cheryl is planning to come out fighting. She wants to blow people away with her sexiest ever routine.
“This will be her showing the world she’s not frail and heartbroken.”
The insider claimed that Cheryl wants to use the opportunity to put the past 12 months “behind her”.
A show insider told the newspaper: “She’s made it clear to Simon that she’s got a point to make and wants to make it early.
“And Simon knows that allowing her to take to the stage during the first weekend of the live shows will be TV gold.”
