X Factor 2012 final duets: Jahmene Douglas with Diana Ross, James Arthur with Sting, Christopher Maloney with Jane McDonald

by Lisa McGarry

Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed who she would like to see performing with the hopefuls on next month’s X Factor final.

The show is less than two weeks away and will be staged in Manchester’s MEN Arena, and a number of celebrities will be joining the lineup for the star studded event.

It had been reported that Adele and Beyonce were both considering performing with Ella Henderson but she’s been eliminated and it is Union J, Christopher Maloney, James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas who are now fighting for the last three places.

Tulisa has revealed that she’d like to see James perform with a veteran rock act like Sting, while she thinks Jahmene needs to sing with a soul legend like Diana Ross.

She told ITV.com:

“I’d love to see James duet with Sting. I’d like to see Jahmene perform with a musical heavyweight like Diana Ross, it would be mind-blowing.”

There is no word yet on who will be best suited to Chris, if he makes the final on the 9th December but one star has offered her services.

Jane McDonald has revealed that she wants to sing with the former cruise ship star if he isn’t eliminated on Sunday and he seems well up for it.

She tweeted him last week saying:

“@ChrisMaloney77 Well done Christopher! Made up for you. Keep up the good work. Xxx”

And revealed on Loose Women that she was willing to sing with the Liverpudlian next week.

He seems to be up for it too and tweeted her tonight saying:

“@TheJaneMcDonald just heard you would love to duet with me..! Wow, that would be amazing. If I get thru to final I’ll ask xx think ur great”
