By Henna Kathiya
50 Cent will be rounding out tonight’s lineup for the anticipated “X Factor” season finale. The Grammy award winning rapper will appear alongside fellow performers Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder and Leona Lewis during the results show. According to Billboard, the producer of X Factor “still has a couple surprises up his sleeve.”
With a star-studded lineup last night that featured appearances from Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette and R. Kelly viewers are pretty much expecting a grand surprise.
Fif’s has kept busy this year, launching his Street King initiative, promoting his SMS Audio headphones line and recently dropping The Big 10 mixtape where he introduced G-Unit’s new female rapper Paris.
Early in December it was rumored that Jay-Z had signed “X-Factor’s” whiz kid, Astro, to his Roc Nation label, but the 15-year-old clarified things with MTV News. “I don’t have a check or a contract, so as far as I know, I’m not signed,” he said. “I have never met anyone from Roc Nation. I’d love to, but I’m not signed right now to anyone. Nobody ever hit me up about that — just go on the Internet and it’s up there. But I’m not signed as far as I know.”
