Honey G lived to rap another day after the judges saved her in a sing-off with Ryan Lawrie, but fans at home are not happy about it.
She performed a mash-up of Missy Elliott’s hit Get Ur Freak On and Work It, which involved a chant of “I say save, you say… me”, while Ryan performed Ed Sheeran’s Lego House on his guitar.
Judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne all voted to save Honey, with only Nicole Scherzinger backing her contestant Ryan.
Former contestant Gifty Louise could not believe what she was seeing.
Guys she won. A. Sing. Off. 😂😂 I'm shook— GL (@GiftyLouise) November 20, 2016
Guys I think Honey G is going to win ✨— GL (@GiftyLouise) November 20, 2016
Even Piers Morgan was unimpressed.
Typical. Honey G finally in bottom 2 & the other act doesn't sing a single note in tune. #XFactor— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) November 20, 2016
Other X Factor fans were livid with the decision.
#XFactor IS A JOKE
Honey G is an absolute joke. I don't get it. Who in their right mind would buy her music. I certainly couldn't listen to that.....— Nαncy~mαy Turnعr♬ (@nancymayturner) November 20, 2016
Some fans even compared it to Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.
First Brexit, then Donald Trump and now Honey G is about to win X factor might as well just write 2016 off now 😂😭— Aaron Bumby (@Aaron_Bumby) November 20, 2016
Brexit. Trump. Honey G. A year of troll-voting. Looking back, Boaty McBoatface was a terrifying sign of things to come.— Brogan Morris (@BroganMorris1) November 20, 2016
