Nick Grimshaw slams this year's X Factor and "horrible" Emily Middlemas performance

x factor 2015 results -  - 19

Former X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw has taken a few swipes at the show.

Nick, who was a judge alongside Simon Cowell, Rita Ora and Cheryl Cole, was tweeting about the show over the weekend and had a lot to say.

Unfortunately poor Emily Middlemas' cover of Toxic came in for a particular mauling.

"I just watched someone play the ukulele and sing Toxic by Britney Spears on the X Factor and people pretended it wasn't horrible," he quipped online.

Nick also laughed at the VTs showing the contestants hearing what a "focus group" of X Factor viewers had to say about them.

"A focus group!!!!😂😂😂😂 the true sign to being a real artist 😂😂😂" he wrote.

However Nick wasn't all negative about the new look series.

"I love Dermy!" he wrote, although that's a comment that could annoy Olly Murs and Caroline Flack who hosted last year's series.

And Nick added: "I'm living for @MrsSOsbourne"

He also went on to praise Honey G's latest two performances and backed her to WIN.

"I mean she's not singing bit I'm loling! Honey G to win!" Nick tweeted on Saturday night.

Of course, unfortunately for Nick, we now know that's not going to happen after Honey G was voted out in last night's results.

The X Factor 2016 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
