Fans of the ITV talent show saw both acts earn a spot in the final 12 after impressing their respective mentors during this weekend’s tense Judges’ Houses episodes.
And while novelty acts are nothing new where ‘The X Factor’ is concerned, that hasn’t stopped an outpouring of indignation from fans on Twitter.
Many have claimed both of them have robbed places from, how shall we put this, more musically gifted acts.
However, there were some viewers who defended the decision:
Honey G was selected for Sharon Osbourne’s Over 25’s category alongside Saara Aalto and Relley C, making it through over Samantha Atkinson, James Wilson, Christopher Peyton and Janet Grogan.
It meant Skarl3t, 4 Of Diamonds, Tom and Laura and Yes Lad all missed out on a place in the live shows.
The final 12 contestants will take to the ‘X Factor’ stage for the first time on Saturday (8 October) when the live shows kick off.
‘The X Factor’ airs on Saturday and Sunday at 8pm on ITV.
