LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Rihanna is slated to perform on The X Factor next week.
The â€œWe Found Loveâ€ singer will perform on Thursdayâ€™s live performance show, following this weekâ€™s electric performances by Willow Smith and Jessie J.
As for Wednesdayâ€™s live results show, Simon Cowell revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he scrapped his initial plan of a Lady Gaga & Madonna theme for a Rock-N-Roll theme.
â€œI thought doing Lady Gaga and Madonna could get a bit too choreography-led and also too restrictive,â€ Cowell shared. â€œRock music gives you a better chance to use the whole stage like we did on the auditions: just you and a huge platform behind you and make it like itâ€™s your first concert.â€
The X Factor airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
