If Simon Cowell gets his way, Adele will be performing in the X Factor 2015 final.
Simon Cowell has revealed he is determined to “fight” Strictly and secure Adele for the X Factor live final.
“Who doesn’t want her?” Simon said. “Nick is mates with her. We’re calling on him to try and twist her arm.”
Simon suggested that if Strictly Come Dancing also wanted the singer, X Factor had the upper hand: “If she has to choose between the two [Strictly and X Factor], we have got the record-buying audience.
“So I’m guessing she would want to come on here. She said on Radio 1 that she was a fan.”
However, with ‘Hello’ staying at the top of the charts for another week, it’s evident Adele doesn’t really need any help selling records.
Simon added: “She’s a superstar and she’ll feel like a superstar if she does this show.”
Nick Grimshaw is also keen to get the star in the final, hoping she will duet with one of his boys if they make the final.
He told the Daily Mirror: “She loves the show and she does watch it. I’d love her to come down and perform, that would be great,” he said. “Maybe if one of my boys gets to the final. I have asked her.”
Adele has spoken about appearing on the show, revealing she will only if the acts aren’t “rubbish”.
She told Kiss FM “It would have to depend on who’s in the final. If they’re rubbish, then no, I won’t,” she declared.
X Factor continues tonight with the results from last night’s third live show at 8pm on ITV, with guest performances from One Direction and Jess Glynne.
