Madonna

X Factor sources have revealed that Madonna was asked to perform on this year’s final, but refused to appear because she had no record to promote.

Bosses had hoped that Madonna would duet with Stacey Solomon on Saturday night’s show, but her snub left Stacey singing with Michael Buble instead.

A source told The Sun:

“We were told she wasn’t in promotion so it wasn’t going to happen.

“It’s a shame as she’d have been brilliant and given the show a real lift, especially with Stacey.”
