X Factor chart Heroes: Finalists perform on charity single which will be in shops this month

Viewers will only find out who has made the last 12 on tonight's X Factor show, but already the finalists have recorded their first single.

The track, a cover of diva Mariah Carey's Hero, will be in shops on October 27, months before the winner is picked.

It will raise much needed funds for the Help for Heroes charity, which supports wounded troops, and the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

An insider source told the Sun: 'I've never heard Simon more excited about anything - there's a real buzz about this single. It's going to blow everyone away when they hear it.'

The track will be performed live on the show for the first time on October 25.

Producer Cowell, 48, is said to be confident the track will head straight to the top of the charts.

A source told the Star: 'It's a genius idea. in the past no-one has been allowed to release a song before the winner. But Simon has relaxed the rules and is releasing a single featuring all of the finalists.

'Not everyone who makes the live shows ends up with a record deal so this is a real gift for them.'
