US television series Glee has announced plans for the cast to perform at the X Factor semi-finals (5 December).

It's the first time the cast have performed live on TV outside of the States and the song choice is being kept under wraps.

The American TV series also recently announced a live British tour, which will take place next summer.

Organisers say the UK shows will be a new production and will visit Manchester and London in June.

They will still feature songs from the Emmy award-winning programme including Empire State of Mind, Toxic, My Life Would Suck Without You and series anthem Don't Stop Believin'.

An album is also being released later this month (29 November).

Glee: The Christmas Album will have the cast's renditions of Christmas classics including Oh Holy Night, Jingle Bells, Last Christmas, Oh Christmas Tree and many more.
