You say Honey, we say pack your bags because you’re going home.
The divisive ‘rapper’ Honey G finally departed The X Factor 2016 tonight after landing in the bottom two for a second week. Honey G battled against boyband 5 After Midnight during the sing-off and it was a pretty clear decision for the judges.
Louis Walsh decided to send Honey G home and save his own act. Sharon Osbourne pretty much begged Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger to keep Honey G in the competition and chose to send 5 After Midnight home. Nicole told Honey G that she respected her but would be sending her home.
That left the deciding vote with Simon. He admitted that he didn’t expect 5 After Midnight to be in the bottom two tonight and told Honey G that she has guts. Simon based his decision on what he thought the public expected him to do and he sent home Honey G.
Tonight’s show featured live performances from Busted, who made their second appearance this series, and Clean Bandit featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie.
The X Factor 2016 continues at 8pm Saturday on ITV.
