The presenter was clearly bemused after watching a video message from Honey G, after she sailed through the first round of live shows in this weekend’s ‘X Factor’.
In the short clip, she raps: “I’m here with Piers Morgan. He’s not lame.”
She continues: “Every day he breathes my name because I’m on my way to ultimate fame.”
“Go, go, you’re feeling my flow, I’ve got more surprises at the live shows.”
She’s not wrong either, as in the first live show of the current series, Honey G hit the stage in a gold tracksuit, to perform the Tupac classic ‘California Love’, with some extra lyrics thrown in for good measure (mostly “when I say Honey, you say G”, natch).
The performance won praise from her mentor, Sharon Osbourne, and Louis Walsh, who told her he felt Tupac “would be happy” with her spin on the song, to which Mrs O promptly reminded him that the rapper has been dead for the past 20 years.
Honey G and the remaining nine ‘X Factor’ performers will be back next week to perform a Motown classic, following the elimination of Bratavio, and the impromptu exit of twin brothers Brooks Way, whose performance was pulled from Saturday’s live show just hours before they were due to hit the stage.
‘The X Factor’ returns on Saturday (15 September), at 8pm on ITV.
‘Good Morning Britain’ airs weekdays from 6.30am on ITV.
