Cheryl Fernandez-Versini will pre-record her X Factor performance this weekend, it has been confirmed.

Cheryl was due to sing her new single 'I Don't Care' live on Sunday night's results show, but it has now been revealed that she will pre-record it to allow enough time to install and remove her set.

An X Factor spokesman confirmed to The Sun: "Logistically there isn't time to build and remove the set live."

This news comes despite X Factor's creative director and choreographer Brian Friedman saying Cheryl would be performing live.

Brian told Reveal last night that Cheryl is "really excited to hit the stage", adding: "She's been singing and dancing in rehearsal live, she's been singing and dancing every time we run it.

"At a rehearsal on Wednesday, Cheryl wanted more time. She stayed in there more hours than originally planned and she's putting in a lot of work."

However, although the performance will be pre-recorded, we are sure Cheryl's actual lyrics will be sung live - as opposed to being mimed.

SInce X Factor's live shows kicked off, Taylor Swift, Pharrell, Jessie J, Maroon 5, One Republic and Ed Sheeran have performed.

Aside from Cheryl's pre-record, John Legend will also be performing on Sunday. Cheryl's last performance on The X Factor was in 2009 with 'Fight For This Love'.
