Watch shock X Factor Honey G stage invasion from behind the scenes


There was a stage invasion on The X Factor 2016 tonight during Honey G's performance.

The North Weezy rapper had just completed her latest song when she was joined on stage by a trio of unwelcome guests.

Her latest performance had an unexpected twist when the pranksters invaded her chat with host Dermot O'Leary.

In tonight's show, Honey was seen singing a new mash up - chosen by Louis Walsh as part of the Louis Loves theme - made up of U Can't Touch This by MC Hammer mixed with Rick James' Super Freak.

At the end of Honey's performance, the judges began to give their feedback as usual before noticing something was wrong.

Cameras were quick to cut away as they focused on the judges looking stunned, before Simon Cowell himself got up on stage as security stormed in to take down the intruders.

"I thought that was part of the act for a second," Simon said.

"I was bit worried about that myself," confessed Honey G, who appeared rather flustered.

Simon replied: "This is what you do, you cause people to go a little crazy. I'm s sorry about that."

Now a 'behind the scenes' video of the prank has appeared on Twitter showing what was going on behind the cameras which us viewers didn't see.

Meanwhile, viewers were quick to react to the scenes online.

"How do we vote for the people who just stormed the stage when Honey G performed? #XFactor," one joked.

But another added: "Actually feel so sorry for Honey G she obviously didn't feel comfortable and Sharon was just laughing #XFactor"

The X Factor 2016 continues live tonight on ITV with Louis Loves week.

Then on Sunday night at 8PM the latest results will see another act leave, as well as performances from Busted and Clean Bandit.
