The X Factor 2016's surprise star Honey G isn't a fake and is serious about her music.

Honey G from North West London - aka North Wheezy - brought her unique version of Missy Elliott's Work It to the Room Auditions on Saturday night.

The performer, real name Anna Georgette Gilford, described herself as a "genuine urban artist" who was "representing for The X Factor massive."

Honey G made it into bootcamp with three yeses but Simon Cowell was NOT a fan.

"It was so uncomfortable, you shouldn't be doing this," he told her.

Speaking on the Xtra Factor Live after the audition, Honey G said: "There's a lot of haters out there, haters are going to hate, don't hate, congratulate. I'm all about spreading positive energy and boys."

Meanwhile, chatting to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Honey G confessed she was surprised by the reaction from Simon and said it left her HEARTBROKEN.

“I’m a big fan of his and of the show," she explained. "I didn’t understand why he wasn’t willing to give me a ‘yes’, because Sharon and Nicole were going crazy in the audition.”

Honey G added: “I’m the whole package. I’m like Pharrell Williams and Missy Elliot. I write my own things, do my own sampling, I produce.”

And quizzed on if it was all just an act, she replied: “There is nothing fake about me. I just say middle finger to my haters. I’m stepping up to the streets with the material that I’m writing.”

The X Factor continues Sunday night at 8PM with more auditions and Xtra Factor again straight after on ITV2.
