X Factor UK Final Confirm One Direction, Coldplay Performance; One Direction To Give Emotional Farewell

This year’s X Factor UK finale may be the biggest one yet, with industry hotshots such as Coldplay and One Direction slated to hit the stage.

Coldplay, who previously made an appearance on the show in 2011, are said to perform a track from their new album, A Head Full of Dreams, over the weekend final – which will take place between December 12-13.

Of the lineup, one source told The Mirror, “Coldplay are a huge act, and this will be a key performance. They’ve collaborated with Beyonce, Noel Gallagher, and even Chris’ ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow appears on the album. Who knows who they could bring as a surprise guest?”

“That, topped with an emotional goodbye from the One Direction boys as they bid farewell from the stage where they performed, will make for a great show,” they added.

It is a well-known fact that One Direction owes its conception to X Factor UK where its members first found each other. While the One Direction boys auditioned as solo artists, judge Simon Cowell decided to place them together in a group.

They might not have taken home the X Factor UK crown, finishing in third place instead, but One Direction eventually signed with Cowell’s record label, Syco Records, and the rest is history.

One Direction’s return to the X Factor UK stage will be a bittersweet one, as their performance will mark one of their last as a band before they enter a lengthy hiatus next year.

Whereas One Direction will be going off the radar by next year, Coldplay, on the other hand, are prepping for their A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which will kick off in March 2016.
