Rihanna is heading to The X Factor - the superstar has confirmed she will perform on the British talent show later this month (Nov09).
The Umbrella hitmaker is set to follow a string of international singers, who have performed on the programme's Sunday night results show.
Stars including Alexandra Burke, Cheryl Cole and JLS have previously proved an X Factor appearance can be crucial to an artist's success - they all shot to number one on the UK singles chart after millions of viewers tuned in to watch them sing.
And Rihanna can't wait to take to The X Factor stage, admitting she's such a huge fan of the talent contest.
She says, "I am beyond excited - it was the easiest decision I've ever made. A lot of people watch the show over here (in America) on YouTube and I personally caught a lot of it when Leona Lewis was on, who's an amazing artist.
"So, to say yes to (show boss) Simon (Cowell) was an honour, especially as I know the show so well."
It is thought Rihanna will perform her new single Russian Roulette on the 22 November show. Her new album, Rated R, is released the following day.
The singer broke her silence about the February (09) fight she had with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown last week (06Nov09) when she appeared on U.S. TV news show 20/20.
