The X Factor choreographer Brian Friedman has promised that Diana Vickers will be “rocking out” on Saturday night.

The 17-year-old singer has been criticised for not dancing on the show, and Brian revealed he was furious when she swapped songs to Coldplay’s Yellow after he choreographed her a dance routine to All Saints’ hit Never Ever for Best of British week.

Brian revealed: “Diana will be dancing this week. If the song gets changed and they cut her performance it will be tragic because, I can’t tell you the song but I can tell you that she’s rocking out.”

There has been an internet campaign mocking Diana’s ‘claw hand’ she makes when singing, but Brian thinks she has been containing her inner dance diva.

He revealed: “Diana has a lot of natural movement. I think that the problem with her whole claw thing is that she was just trying to just contain everything so now that it will be unleashed it will be good.”

Asked who he wants to win Brian said: “Alexandra, one hundred per cent.”
