X Factor 2016: Emily Middlemas sends viewers to sleep with another slow song


It was another slow number from Emily Middlemas on The X Factor 2016 tonight.

Last weekend Emily dramatically hit out at own mentor Simon Cowell over her song choices, leaving him 'so angry'.

It was Disco week but Emily performed a sixth slow song in a row, singing Wishing On A Star.

Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh weren't impressed but Simon told Emily: "Forget what they said. It was beautifully dramatic and beautifully staged."

However Emily told host 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.

Well this week was more of the same, as Emily performed It Must Have Been Love by Rosette from the movie Pretty Woman.

"I really like this, this is something I'd really cover. This is me," Emily insisted of the song choice in her VT.

And while the judges raved about the "haunting" performance, viewers weren't so easily won over.

"Pretty sure I dozed off during that one. #XFactor" tweeted one fan of the show.

Another wrote online: "Emily is so depressing get her off Saturday night tv #XFactor"

"I think its Emilys week to go ! #XFactor," a third concluded.

Can Emily avoid the bottom two sing-off this weekend?
