Coldplay’s Chris Martin to appear on ‘The X Factor’?

Singer reportedly in talks to appear on live final with Paul McCartney and George Michael

Coldplay‘s Chris Martin is reportedly being lined up to appear on next week’s live final of the ‘The X Factor’.

The singer is apparently in talks to appear on the show on December 13 alongside Paul McCartney and George Michael, who are thought to be teaming up for a duet.

A source told the Daily Mirror: “Everyone knows Simon (Cowell) is ultra-competitive and he has always said he will only carry on with ‘The X Factor’ if he can improve on it year-on-year.

“After last year’s duets with Beyonce, Boyzone and Westlife he knew he had to pull out all the stops to make this year’s even better.”

As previously reported on NME.COM, McCartney was apparently keen to appear on the show according to unconfirmed reports. He is yet to confirm his appearance on the live final.
