Little Mix think Honey G is 'real deal'
Little Mix think 'The X Factor's Honey G is "the real deal."
The 'Black Magic' singers - who won the singing competition in 2011 - previously claimed that the wannabe rapper was an "actress" and didn't have any real talent but it seems the band's Leigh-Anne Pinnock has since had a change of heart as she'd love to see her make the final because she's doing "really well" so far.
Speaking on 'This Morning' on Thursday (20.10.16), she said: "You know what, let her do her thing. She's doing well and she probably will end up in the final [...] I heard that she never comes out of character, so I think she's the real deal."
It girl group's sudden change of mind comes less than a week after they returned to the programme to perform their latest single 'Shout Out To My Ex' and, although they've sold out arenas around the world, they were riddled with nerves beforehand.
Jesy Nelson explained: "We cannot even describe how scary it is [...] until you've done that whole experience, I can't describe the feeling that you get. I think it's because you still feel like you're being judged. And you feel every time you go on you've got to be better than your last performance. It's just terrifying!"
Despite a jaw-dropping vocal performance, the band came under fire for their "racy outfits", which saw them wear leotards and thigh-high boots, but they think people took aim at their ensembles because they had nothing else to criticise.
Jade Thirlwall said: "It's a bit double standards, you always see lads with their tops off and everyone congratulates them and woos them, and we get a bit of thigh out and it's a bit of an issue! We were really comfortable in our outfits and we loved what we wore."
