Honey G confronted by X Factor stage invaders

Honey G confronted by X Factor stage invaders

Honey G was the victim of a stage invasion on 'The X Factor' on Saturday (26.11.16).

While Louis Walsh was giving his opinion on the rapper's performance of MC Hammer's 'U Can't Touch This', a man surprised Honey G and presenter Dermot O'Leary by rushing on to the stage.

However, Honey G kept her cool and Louis continued to praise her for her rendition of the song.

There appeared to be some confusion about how many stage invaders there were, as Dermot said: "We had a stage invasion, three punks thought they could come on and take on Honey G. Nah, I don't think so."

And Simon Cowell, who rushed to her aide, added: "Forget that. You've got a second song. Don't let that bother you. Come back believing you are a star."

Honey G's mentor Sharon Osbourne called the invaders "passionate fans" and said: "Your fans are passionate for you."

Meanwhile, following her performance, the rapper pleaded for fans to continue to vote for her.

She said: "Everyone knows how much it means to me to get to the final. I know I can do it. I just need the public to vote and get me there."

Earlier in the night, viewers were delighted as the show's 'Louis Loves' theme began with the Irish judge performing a jig on stage with some Irish dancers.

Louis picked the first songs for each of the contestants - Matt Terry, 5 After Midnight, Emily Middlemas and Saara Aalto - and won praise from Simon for his choices.
