Rihanna's controversial X Factor performance of What's My Name in 2010

Just when we were starting to get bored of the X Factor, Simon Cowell has done it again by getting American-based superstar Rihanna, to perform on next week’s show.

Now taking into consideration the drama she caused on the show last year, we’re surprised that ITV bosses have let the We Found Love singer back on the X Factor stage.

In the last series, the Bajan singer went a whine too far for the British public and ITV received nearly 3000 complaints along with Christina Aguilera’s equally raunchy performance. Both aired before the 9pm watershed.

Rebecca Ferguson will also be taking the stage. But let’s face it, the only thing she’ll be revealing is the release date of her debut album.

Do you think RiRi will tone down the sex appeal or will she be showing us who has the real XXX Factor? Share your thoughts.
