X Factor 2016: Gifty Louise wants to duet with Justin Bieber


X Factor's Gifty Louise has revealed she wants to duet with Justin Bieber.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's latest live show, Gifty revealed her dream singing partner if she makes it all the way to the final.

She told this week's Star magazine: "Chris Brown or Justin Bieber - it's a cliche to perform with a girl. Personally, I want a male singer."

Last week saw Gifty nail her first live performance with mentor Simon Cowell declaring her the best of the girls.

And this week Simon has been wanting even more from Gifty.

She revealed: "He said to give more energy, more sassiness and treat every performance like it was my concert.

"He has an opinion on everything we girls do - good or bad. He cares what we wear and how we look. It's really nice."

Meanwhile, Gifty defended Honey G after some viewers called for her to be 'replaced'.

"People say she shouldn't be here, but if the judges say Honey G deserves a place, she deserves a place," Gifty declared. "It's a shame because you want everyone to make it through. We're a family and obviously we'll support her until the end.

"People can call certain acts a joke and say they don't belong in the competition, but you're still going to turn on your TV on Saturday night and see them. At the end of the day, who's winning? they're winning!"

The X Factor 2016 airs live this Saturday and Sunday night at 8PM on ITV.

It's Motown week and the final eleven - including newly introduced 4 Of Diamonds - will be singing to avoid the next elimination.

On Sunday night another act will go while former X Factor champs Little Mix will take to the stage to perform.
