James Arthur warms up for X Factor with Labrinth
Singer performs with his hero
X FACTOR star James Arthur has been limbering up for tonight’s heat with a starring role at a Labrinth gig.
Rapper and producer Labrinth invited the contestant to join him on stage after being impressed by him when he appeared as a guest on the ITV1 programme.
Labrinth, who performed on the results show alongside Alford’s Emeli Sande, had been keen to meet James.
The pair got on so well that James headed up to Labrinth’s show at Manchester Academy and rapped during the performance of chart hit Earthquake.
James – who had a panic attack a fortnight ago as a result of appearing on a live edition of X Factor – said: “It was a totally unreal experience. He put on a great show and is a real hero of mine.
“It was a honour to be able to perform with him.”
