It has been revealed that Ellie will be singing Anything Could Happen with Luke Friends on this weekend’s X Factor finals show.
Luke is my favourite contestant, so I really can’t wait for this!
“I’m really excited to perform with lovely Luke He’s a crazy talented singer and a good soul and to me that is the perfect combination.
“I love the tone of his voice and his stage presence. It’s very, very cool to be a part of the live X Factor show.”
Luke Friends said:
“From being a Devonshire busker to playing on the show in front of millions is overwhelming. To perform with one of my favourite artists in the industry will be incredible – when Ellie sings you know exactly who it is, she has such a unique voice. It’s going to be an absolute honour.”

Summer is waning, but for Ellie Goulding it seems like it could go on forever. The 26-year-old singer left her native UK and traveled to North America as the opening act for much of Bruno Mars‘ Moonshine Jungle tour. Of course that’s when she wasn’t playing to capacity crowds at the world’s most prestigious music festivals, including Chicago’s Lollapalooza.
We caught up with Goulding to talk about the expanded reissue of her 2012 album, Halcyon, as Halcyon Days, now bolstered with 10 additional new songs and set for release next Tuesday, August 27.
“It’s a little happier than everything I’ve done before,” Goulding said of the new songs featured on Halcyon Days. “It’s kind of the more uplifting songs. It embraces my love of electronic music a bit more. I’ve got collaborations on there with DJ Fresh, Greg Kurstin, Nate Ruess from fun.
“Basically, after my album came out, it’s been a weird time for me,” she continued. “I feel like now I’m so much deeper into Halcyon that I just wanted to expand it. I wanted it to last longer, because I’m not done with this record yet. For anyone else, it might be a time to move on and make another record, but I don’t think it’s the end yet.”
The new clutch of songs was led by the single “Burn,” which has the distinction of being Goulding’s first No.1 song in her home country of Great Britain.
“’Burn’ I wrote with Ryan Tedder, and I love it. It’s something different for me,” she enthused. “It has a different rhythm, it’s a different kind of vibe and I really enjoy performing it and singing it. I did a Vine video where I got all of my fans to do their own interpretation of ‘Burn’ and what the song meant to them. Then I did my own video featuring lots of kids wanting to be in a music video, and then (multiply) them by like a thousand. We did it on an airstrip. It was just a bunch of us having fun, and that’s kind of what I wanted to do.”
With much of Halcyon Days heavily steeped in sounds of electronic dance music, Goulding isn’t afraid of how the new songs will go over in with her American audience, who might not be as versed in the pulsating sounds of dubstep or house.
“ I don’t want to think I can’t do (something) because no one’s ever done it before. I’ve always combined my love of folk music with electronic music and pop music. It works for me,” Goulding insisted. “It’s not the easiest task in the world, but it seems to work for me and I seem to have engaged people. If I can keep going and I can keep bringing people together like I did today at Lollapalooza, then I’m f**king winning. I love it.”
Goulding was equally enthused to talk about life on the road with Bruno Mars this summer, an experience she called “incredible.”
“I’m just so lucky to be able to watch a show like that every night,” she said. “He truly is one of the greatest entertainers in the world.”
Ellie Goulding has more live shows in her future, as she’s set to embark on an extensive tour of the U.K., which kicks off in London on September 22 as part of the iTunes Music Festival.
