BOSSES at the Beeb are aiming for record ratings by lining up Madonna for a guest performance.
They believe the queen of pop will give the hit show its biggest audience to date.
And they want Madonna, 53, to perform during a Sunday night results show.
A source said: “Getting Madge on to sing is bound to pull in the viewers.
“You don’t get much bigger than her – she’s a living legend.
“The show has regularly been getting ratings of over ten million.
“Having Madonna, plus the all-important results, could push it past the 12million mark.”
Securing the pop icon for an appearance would be the biggest coup in TV talent show history, according to insiders.
One said last night: “X Factor’s finest hour was getting Britney Spears on – but there’s no doubt Madonna is a much bigger name.
“Simon Cowell will be furious if The Voice upstages him with a massive guest performer like Madonna in its first series.”
Video Games singer Lana Del Rey, 25, will perform on tonight’s results show and BRIT award winner Emeli Sandé, 24, is due to sing next weekend.
