The Killers will perform live during The X Factor final, it has been confirmed.

The current series of the ITV talent show is due to end on the weekend of December 14 and 15 with a host of big name guests performing between this year's contestants. The Las Vegas band, who recently released their greatest hits collection 'Direct Hits', will perform 'Mr Brightside' and 'Human' on the Saturday night (December 14).

Joining The Killers on the show will be Elton John, One Direction, Katy Perry and Tom Odell with Elton John duetting with X Factor judge Gary Barlow on the Take That man's new single 'Face To Face'. The show's final is filmed at Wembley Arena and will be broadcast live on ITV.

Last week, The Killers revealed that Hollywood actor Owen Wilson will feature in the video for their 2013 Christmas single. For the last eight years, the band have released a festive charity single. This year's, singer Brandon Flowers has confirmed, will be released on December 1 again to coincide with World Aids Day.

Last years' Christmas single 'I Feel It In My Bones' saw the band again team up with their former tour manager Ryan Pardley, who previously appeared in the band's 2007 Christmas video for 'Don't Shoot Me Santa'. Pardley played the role of a 'bad Santa' who rides a motorbike in place of Father Christmas' more traditional sleigh.
