X Factor judges loved Honey G but have viewers had enough?


Honey G's latest X Factor 2016 performance has split viewers.

It was Motown week tonight and Honey performed Diana Ross' I'm Coming Out.

Well, sort of.

Someone else was actually singing the song while Honey G spent most of her performance just chanting her name over the top of it.

However that was enough to get the X Factor judges on their feet.

"You shut it down!" declared Simon Cowell. "You have turned it around and you know what? Now you're my guilty pleasure.

"The dancing was brilliant, Sharon and you are two peas in a pod. She gets you fantastically."

Nicole Scherzinger remarked: "I don’t know what just happened! You have the mentality of a rapper... I love your personality and dancing."

Meanwhile, Louis Walsh revealed: "You know what all my friends are saying in Dublin? Everyone thinks you look like David Cameron in a wig! People are saying it to me... is it true?! I don’t know!"

Honey G's mentor Sharon Osbourne concluded: "You are stepping it up!"

Following the performance, Honey G rocketed the top of Twitter trends where a lot of the messages were ones she probably wouldn't want to read.

"if you're voting for honey g i suggest you go to the doctors and ask for some help X," one viewer wrote.

"I'm sorry but Honey G can't just shout 'When I say Honey you say G every week' I don't get it," another complained

But Honey G does still have a number of fans including none other than Robbie Williams, who was with Sharon when she put Honey into the live shows.

". @The_Honey_G = the most entertaining act on @TheXFactor so far: fact x," tweeted Robbie.

The X Factor continues Sunday night at 8PM with the latest results show.
