Honey G returns to The X Factor for competition final

Honey G returned to The X Factor on Saturday night as she previewed her first single.

The controversial rapper, whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford, was booted out of the singing competition two weeks ago.

But she was brought back for the show’s final to perform a medley of rap hits including Will Smith’s Men In Black.

As she neared the end of her performance, she broke into a new track which she later revealed would be called The Honey G Show and is set to drop on December 23.

And even the judges got involved as they donned the former contestant’s new novelty sunglasses.

Viewers were in shock.

Earlier this month presenter Dermot O’Leary described former contestant Honey G as the highlight of this year’s competition.
