ABBA's X Factor masterclass

ABBA's X Factor masterclass

ABBA fans will be delighted to hear that Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus will be making an appearance on The X Factor this coming weekend after confirming they will host a masterclass for the remaining contestants.

The 71-year-old and 73-year-old stars will help out the six semi-finalist acts this coming week and watch them perform hit ABBA songs from this year's film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Benny said: "I am very happy to be hosting a masterclass and hear the last six contestants perform our songs.

"I am thrilled 'The X Factor' is celebrating the Mamma Mia! film soundtracks."

Björn added: "I am looking forward to being at The X Factor studio on Saturday night and see how the contestants put their own spin on our songs just as Cher, Meryl Streep, Lily James and the rest of the cast did in the movies."

This won’t be the first time X Factor contestants have tried their hand at ABBA songs. Here’s a reminder of Rylan’s rendition of Mamma Mia back in 2012!

The six hopeful singers will perform some of ABBA's greatest hits in a bid to earn a place in the The X Factor final.
