Robbie back on X Factor as finalists hook up with stars

Tuesday December 8, 2009

The reaction to his comeback appearance on this year's X Factor obviously left Robbie Williams wanting more.

The former Take That musician is making a return to the talent contest with a finale performance alongside contestant Olly Murs.

Robbie grew fond of the 25-year-old when they first met on the show.

"I love Olly Murs," he said. "I want him to be my mate."

In true X Factor style, the three remaining contestants, Olly, Stacey and Joe, will each team up with a class act in an attempt to win the grand prize.

Dagenham diva Stacey will be singing alongside US heart-throb Michael Buble, while Joe teams up with the legendary George Michael.

And the excitement doesn't end there. Beatles icon Sir Paul McCartney will also be making a live appearance.

"In previous years we've had some great acts, but nothing beats having four of the great male solo acts in one weekend," judge Simon Cowell says.

"This has all the makings of the biggest X Factor show ever."
