'Novelty act' Honey G makes it through diva week

Controversial rapper Honey G hopes to go all the way to the X Factor final after making it through the third live show.

The 'novelty act' got the public's vote with her rendition of Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby for 'diva week'.

Judge Nicole Scherzinger said: "I loved the honey drizzle dance break. You stepped it up this week and shut it down."

Simon Cowell added: "A lot of people are calling me asking me about you. When people talk about you, you win, and a lot of people are talking about you."

Scherzinger surprised the audience by opening the show with a performance of Chaka Khan's I'm Every Woman and Aretha Franklin's Respect.

Birmingham singer Relley C became the third act to be booted off the show.

She lost out to girl group Four of Diamonds in Sunday's sing-off.

Judges Sharon Osbourne, who mentors the over 25s, and Louis Walsh, who has the groups, chose to save their own acts.

So it was down to former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger to send Relley home.
