X Factor's Honey G has been offered a record deal already... by Snoop Dogg.

Yes, apparently the American music star is keen to work with Honey on a record and fly her over to the states to create a song together.

He's quoted as telling the Daily Star newspaper: "I am happy to see Simon [Cowell] is finally giving real hip-hop talent a chance on the show, it's been a long time coming."

"Straight up, you can tell Honey G comes from the streets," Snoop went on. "If Simon doesn't take her through to the live shows, she ain't got to worry, I will work with her.

"I'll fly her over here, and we can record a song together, maybe even shoot a video."

That would certainly be something...

Tonight sees Honey G singing for a place in the judges' houses with Overs mentor Sharon Osbourne.

She tells cameras: "I see myself as a massive innovator in the game right now. When I rap, it feels amazing, it feels I am in my element, like Jay Z, Missy Elliot, like Nicki Minaj.

"My first audition was incredible. Nicole and Sharon actually started dancing, Sharon is down with my vibe, she is ready for me... she'll give me a chair. I really hope she doesn’t let the next Jay Z slip through her fingers."

Honey G concludes: "I am the realest chick in the game right now.”

After singing Missy Elliott ft Pharrell’s WTF (Where They From), Honey G is told by Simon Cowell “You shouldn’t be doing that, but you are.

"I don’t know whether you are real... if you are, you are genius. If I am being mugged here, you are a genius.”

And while the audience want Honey to take a seat, will Sharon oblige?

The X Factor 2016 airs tonight at 7PM on ITV.
