X Factor 2016: Simon Cowell is 'so ANGRY' with Emily Middlemas


Emily Middlemas has revealed Simon Cowell is 'so angry' with her.

It's after Emily dramatically hit out at her own mentor in tonight's live X Factor live show.

It was Disco week but Emily performed another slow number, singing Wishing On A Star.

Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh weren't impressed.


Sharon said: "It was a bit of a Debbie downer after everything we've seen and I want to see another side of you."

However Simon declared: "Forget what they said. It was beautifully dramatic and beautifully staged."

But then Emily told Dermot O'Leary she actually disagreed with her own mentor and sided with the other judges.

"I agree with all three of them. I really want to do something upbeat. I've just stood on the one spot," she complained.

On the Xtra Factor afterwards this evening, Emily confessed: "Simon is so angry. I saw him in the corridor and he said, 'I'll talk to you later.' I'm sorry Simon!"

When quizzed on if she would finally perform an uptempo number next week now, Emily promised (again) it would actually happen this time.

However her desire to sing something a little faster has become a bit of a running joke on the ITV2 spin-off, now six weeks into the live shows.

"I've been stuck, the first one I was in a cage and the second one I was in a circle," Emily previously said of her performances.


She confessed after divas week: "I really wanted to [sing an upbeat song] this week but I guess I kind of have to take Simon's words."

On the Xtra Factor last Sunday night, Rylan Clark-Neal jokingly branded Emily a "liar" after she again performed a slowed down number on Saturday for Girl Band v Boy Band week.

The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
