Honey G performed on the X Factor final and people were not happy

Why was an act who had been voted off back before a winner had even been chosen?

Whitney Houston, Beyonce… er, Honey G? Yes, in an unprecedented move, Saturday night’s X Factor final saw the return of one of this year’s ejected contestants as a guest performer, with Honey G taking to the stage to promote her new album.


And many viewers were pretty unimpressed…

Why was a non-finalist performing in the final, they asked?

Why did she have a single out before the actual finalists?

What does that say about Simon Cowell and the X Factor’s commitment to the eventual winner?

And is Honey G really the calibre of star an X Factor final deserves anyway?

Then again, you might say the same thing about Madness


The X Factor final concludes tonight, Sunday 11th December, at 8pm on ITV
