Honey G singing Stayin' Alive for X Factor disco week

Honey G will perform the 'Stayin' Alive' as part of disco week on 'The X Factor'.

In a week which has seen the rapper 'killed off' in hoax rumours she has chosen to cover the Bee Gees classic hit from the 1977 movie 'Saturday Night Fever' - which starred John Travolta as dancefloor lothario Tony Manero - in what can be interpreted as an ironic nod to the reports.

Honey G announced her song in a video message posted on her Twitter account and urged her fans to vote for her again this weekend and keep on track to win Simon Cowell's talent show.

She said: "Yo, yo, yo this is Honey G. I've just come out of my vocal coaching ... This weekend I'm going to be performing 'Stayin' Alive' by the Bee Gees so make sure you get ready to vote for Honey G to win 'The X Factor'."

Elsewhere, Saara Aalto will take on Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer's 'No More Tears (Enough is Enough)' in a bid to avoid being in the bottom two again.

Emily Middlemas is to sing Rose Royce's 'Wishing on a Star', whilst her boyfriend Ryan Lawrie will put his spin on Wild Cherry's 'Play that Funky Music'.

Sam Lavery once again takes on a karaoke favourite by picking Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive', and Matt Terry is lending his dulcet tones to girl group The Emotions' 'Best of My Love' - which was written by Earth, Wind & Fire's Maurice White and Al McKay and was a 1977 hit.

And Earth, Wind & Fire and The Emotions will feature on disco week for a second time when boy band 5 After Midnight - Kieran Alleyne, Jordan Lee and Nathan Lewis - cover their 1979 monster hit 'Boogie Wonderland'.

However, the trio have endured a tough week as Kieran has been sick and had to have Wednesday (09.11.16) off from rehearsals for bed rest.

A tweet posted on the official 5 After Midnight Twitter account read: "Feel so sick today!! - Kieran."

'The X Factor' airs on Saturday night (12.11.16) at 8pm on ITV.
