The first of the 2014 X Factor live shows are set to take place this weekend (October 11th–12th) and the first two performers have already been announced.
Taylor Swift and Pharrell Williams are scheduled to appear on Sunday night’s results show and this year has certainly been kind to them both.
Taylor’s current track, ‘Shake It Off’, was last positioned at number three in the UK’s singles charts and with a feel-good factor mixed with a gimic-style track, it could be heading to number one.
The star has also been hosting a few secret listening parties for her fans promoting her new album 1989, but the rest of you will have to wait until October 27th to hear the complete project.
So, whilst Taylor Swift performs ‘Shake It Off’ on the X-Factor stage, Pharrell will be performing his latest release, ‘Gust Of Wind’, taken from his hit album, G I R L.
After releasing the animae video for ‘It Girl’, ‘Gust Of Wind’ soon followed with collaborators Daft Punk. With a current autumn feel in the video, Pharrell teamed up with director Edgar Wright to create a true visual experience.
Fans recently saw Pharrell in the UK at the iTunes Festival, where he performed a string of hits off his latest album, including ‘Happy’, ‘Marilyn Monroe’ and ‘Come Get It Bae’. To top off his busy week, Pharrell will also be in concert (Oct 9th and 10th) at the 02 arena as part of his European tour.
Check out all the videos below. Plus, don’t forget to tune into The X-Factor this weekend!
