The date that Sam Bailey will be supporting Beyoncé on her up-and-coming tour has been announced.
The X Factor winner will perform ahead of the pop legend on February 24, at the LG Arena, in Birmingham.
Sam explained: “I am doing the whole of the X Factor tour, it’s just the Beyonce dates clash with it, so I’m not doing all of the Beyonce dates, but I’d be quite happy just to do the one just to say I’ve done it.”
However even the one date is a little intimidating for Sam.
She admitted at a Q&A in London yesterday: “I am going to feel a little out of my depth because this is Beyonce were talking about and I’m little old Sam Bailey from Leicester.
“It’s an amazing prize and a great opportunity and I can’t wait to do it because who can say they’ve done that – I might have to learn to dance a bit.”
And Sam suggested that concert goers may be surprised with some of her performances now she was out of The X Factor.
“[On The X Factor] you’ve got to stick with different themes,” Sam revealed, “Every week when they said write down a list of songs you want to sing, I’ve wrote down some of these big songs but they’ve not wanted to pick it.”
