Honey G eliminated from X Factor

Honey G has been eliminated from 'The X Factor'.

The rapper found herself in a sing-off with 5 After Midnight on Sunday's (27.11.16) show after landing in the bottom two and the judging panel voted to send her home.

Although her mentor Sharon Osbourne chose to save Honey G; Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell all agreed it was time for her to leave the show.

Louis implored Nicole to save his act 5 After Midnight, by saying "Come on Nicole, it's a talent show."

And Nicole responded by telling Honey G, "You have earned by respect, you are a fighter but unfortunately, the act I am voting to send home is Honey G."

Simon added: "Honey I didn't think you were right for this competition at the start but you've got guts. You've soldiered on.

"However, I have to do what the public would expect me to do in a situation like this.

"One of the acts has gone as far as they can go now and the act I am going to save is the act I believe can turn this around, so the act I am sending home is Honey G."

And Honey was disappointed but upbeat as she spoke to presenter Dermot O'Leary, saying: "I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed working with everyone on 'The X Factor'. This has been a completely life-changing experience for me and I just want to give a shout-out to everyone who said I couldn't make it."

Matt Terry, Saara Aalto, 5 After Midnight and Emily Middlemas are the four remaining contestants in the competition following Honey G's departure.
