As the X Factor season winds to a close with the finale this weekend, it seems like it’s not just the contestants that we will be saying goodbye to. Simon Cowell has arranged a grand farewell tribute to be played for One Direction, who will be performing during the finale, to bid them goodbye from the  music world.

Yes, it’s true: The band that got their start on X Factor and then took the world by storm will be playing their last concert on the very stage where they were formed. One Direction had announced that they will be taking a temporary hiatus from the music business, and the X Factor finale will be their last show – at least for a while.

While a source has claimed that it’s simply an extended hiatus and that the boy band will “work on individual projects for a while but… they will remain together and plan to work together in the future,” judging by the tribute Simon has arranged, it seems as though he may not believe it to be a temporary break.

Simon Cowell has pulled together A-list stars from the music industry as well as other celebrity industries to record farewell video messages for the much-loved One Direction. Singer Mariah Carey and actors James Corden and Will Ferrell are believed to be included in the tribute.

A source has revealed that despite the claims that the split will be temporary, “Simon knows the boys’ performance this weekend could be one of their last ones and wants them to go out in style.”

One Direction has said that they will disband for at least a year while they pursue their separate projects, and will hopefully come back together afterwards with a new album. However, this seems like a lot of effort for Simon Cowell to go through for a supposedly temporary hiatus.

It will certainly be an emotional night for everyone – the X Factor contestants as a winner is decided, One Direction as they watch the tribute, and fans of both as they say goodbye to their beloved musicians.
