Producers of the ITV1 series surprised viewers with the wild card twist last year, but are apparently planning to use their shock tactics earlier in the new season.
With Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue having left the show, they have called in Rihanna to add some star quality.
The S&M singer will perform for the contestants at the boot camp, but the hopefuls will then be asked to follow her on stage and audition for the judges again, reports the Daily Star Sunday.
An X Factor insider said: ‘It’s very nerve-racking for the contestants but great viewing for the audience at home.
‘Who could follow Rihanna and be confident? This will definitely weed out the good from the bad.’

Rihanna is close to completing her sixth studio album.
Producer Verse Simmonds, who worked on her current single Man Down, told our US Team that the S&M star was putting the finishing touches to the follow-up to Loud.
“From what I understand, she is closing the album up now. We did two records for her that she really, really loved and I’m really excited about them as well,” Verse said of him and his Jugganauts partner Sham ‘Sak Pase’ Joseph.
“They are records that we wrote and produced as the Jugganauts,” he said, adding that a third track by the team may be included on the album.
But he said the new songs didn’t sound anything like the reggae-inspired Man Down. “Nah, definitely not, because we always try to constantly – as producers, as artists – we try to always come with something different, a whole new sound,” he said.
