Joe McElderry is to sing at the National Television Awards.
The newly crowned X Factor winner will perform his rendition of Journey's Don't Stop Believin' at the star-studded ceremony, where Jedward are also appearing with 90s rapper Vanilla Ice.
The Sun reports that Simon Cowell picked the song for his new protege to open the awards which take place at London's O2 Arena on January 20.
Don't Stop Believin' is also expected to be Joe's second single - a Facebook campaign backed by over 6,000 fans has already urged this to happen.
Joe - who beat Olly Murs in the nail-biting final - and his X Factor single, The Climb, were knocked off course for the Christmas No 1 by US rockers Rage Against The Machine, but hit back by getting the first No 1 of 2010.
