X Factor 2016: Honey G reckons she could be the next Nicki Minaj


Honey G is singing for a place in The X Factor 2016 live shows tonight.

And she's going all out after getting a second chance in the competition.

Sharon chose to bring Honey G back into the competition this week after Ivy Grace was forced to withdraw due to visa issues.

Sharon said: “I thought long and hard about who can take Ivy's place in the competition and I have never received so many calls and texts about an auditionee before


"She's larger than life, she's fun, she's different to everyone else in this competition... and I love different.”

In tonight's show, Honey is seen making herself at home in Downtown LA

"Obviously I identify myself with people like Drake, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne but I'm not them, I'm Honey G," says Honey G.

She goes on: "When I was younger, I always remember I knew all the words to the Snoop Dogg Doggy Dog's Doggy style album.

"I think I was born to perform. In the Six Chair Challenge when Sharon didn't give me a seat. That still does play on my mind a bit but I'm really pleased she's had a change of heart.

"I hope she's realised that Honey G has potential. Honey G could be the next biggest recording artist."

After singing Coolio's Gangster’s Paradise for Sharon and guest mentor Robbie Williams, Honey G leaves a lasting impression.

"She makes me happy," says Robbie, "But her talent for making me happy isn't he talent that's going to win this show.


Honey G reflects with Dermot O'Leary: "I just hope they're feeling my vibe and my flow."

Will Honey G make the live shows?

The X Factor 2016 airs tonight at 7:30PM on ITV.
