Ricky met the finalists at a press conference in London, when it was announced who they would be singing with in the live finals.

Cher Lloyd is teaming up with from the Black Eyed Peas but isn't expecting to do well. "I know I'm not going to win. Come on, I'm the rapper."

The act with the least public votes will be kicked off the show on Saturday night.

A second person will be eliminated halfway through Sunday's show, before the last two acts go head-to-head before the winner is announced.

Simon Cowell said: "I don't want this to be the goody-goody show and pretend we are nice people because we are not."

As well as Cher Lloyd teaming up with, Rebecca Ferguson will be performing with Christina Aguilera.

One Direction will be singing with Robbie Williams, and Matt Cardle will be on the mike with Rihanna.
