X Factor 2016: Honey G to do the mannequin challenge LIVE tonight


Honey G is planning to perform the mannequin challenge LIVE on The X Factor 2016 tonight.

After appearing in the bottom two last week for the first time, it seems the North Weezy rapper is going all out to avoid a second sing off.

As well as taking part in the latest viral craze, Honey will also be performing a total of FOUR songs.

It's Quarter Finals weekend where, for the first time this year, she and the other remaining acts will be performing twice.


One of Honey's performances will be a mash up of Black Beatles by Rae Sremmurd & Gucci Mane and Push It by Salt-N-Pepa while the other - chosen by Louis Walsh as part of the Louis Loves theme - is U Can't Touch This by MC Hammer mixed with Rick James' Super Freak.

A source spilled to The Sun newspaper: “Honey is singing two songs this week — U Can’t Touch This by MC HAMMER, picked by Louis, and her own choice, a mash-up of SALT-N-PEPA’s Push It mixed into Black Beatles.

“She came up with the amazing idea of doing a Mannequin Challenge live on the show and getting all the judges involved. It’s a big risk in front of millions of viewers as it could all go horribly wrong, but if she pulls it off it will be huge."

The source added: “After ending up in the bottom two last week she is doing everything she can to get into the semis.”

But will it be enough to keep her out of the sing off?

Bookies have installed her as the favourite to go ahead of the performances on Saturday night with 93% of bets going on Honey G to leave, including a £3,000 stake.

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