X Factor 2016: Sharon Osbourne insists Honey G is entertaining

Honey G

Sharon Osbourne has defended putting Honey G through to the X Factor live shows.

Honey G's inclusion in the X Factor final 12 line up has arguably been the most controversial choice from this year's show.

But Sharon insists that Honey G IS entertainment.

"Hand on heart it’s about entertaining people and Honey G whether you love her or you don’t love her entertains," she said.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain on ITV today, Sharon went on: "She has her own unique way of rapping and people want to see more.

"Whether they say they don't... they do."

Honey G was also on the show and said: "Obviously there are going to be haters everywhere you go - even people very, very famous have haters. I see the haters poppin' and I don't really take any notice of them.

She added: "They just need to check themselves."

Saturday night will see Honey G perform live for the first time this year and she's teased an epic performance.

“I can’t say anything about the song, unfortunately," Honey revealed. "But I would like to deliver a track that’s gonna make the hairs on the backs of peoples’ necks stand up. I want to make sure the song is guaranteed to be a success.”

The X Factor airs live from 8PM Saturday night on ITV.
