The special guests for the X Factor semi final have been revealed.

Taking to the stage on Saturday, global megastar Ed Sheeran will take to the stage for a exclusive performance. He released his debut album ‘+’ (pronounced “plus”) in 2011.

In 2014, he released his follow-up LP ‘x’ (pronounced “multiply”). Bolstered by the likes of Pharrell Williams and Benny Blanco on production, ‘x’ charted at #1 on both sides of the Atlantic upon release, spawned his global smash ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and has even been named one of the biggest-selling albums of all time by The Official Charts Company: the album is now 90 x platinum and has sold 15 million copies worldwide. In July 2015, Sheeran became the first-ever artist to headline Wembley Stadium, solo, without a band – with just his loop pedal and guitar – over three, consecutive sold out nights. Having just released his history-making third studio album ‘÷’ (pronounced “divide”), which has become one of the biggest-selling releases in recent years – it has sold over 7 million copies in a little over two months – Ed Sheeran continues to dominate charts across the globe.
