But it all seems a bit fishy to us and perhaps a joke gone too far! 

In past X Factor series there has always been the 'jokey' contestant, but even the likes of Wagner could hold a tune better than Honey G!

Remember him? 


Many fans of the show were crying out after she took the place of favourites James Wilson and Janet Grogan to get one step closer to the X Factor 2016 crown. 

Some even went as far as wanting to boycott the show - but is that a bit harsh? She may not be a singer but Honey G is DEFINITELY entertaining!

So who IS Honey G?!

We've scoured the far reaches of the internet to try and find out!
Lets start off with her real name!
Yes - we're pretty sure her parents didn't name her Honey G. In fact her full name is in fact Anna Georgette Gilford - perhaps where the 'g' in Honey G came from?

What did she do before the X Factor?

She revealed on the show that she was an IT recruiter and runs her own company. She said “It’s not doing very well and I’m in debt with the tax man so I am looking for a way out for my life at the moment". So it looks like she's hoping on bagging that Christmas No. 1!

Judging from her LinkedIn she seems to be pretty savvy too! With a bachelor's degree AND a master's degree under her belt - clever lady! 

What does she look like under the rap superstar outfit?

The questions that is perhaps on everybody's lips is finally about to be answered....

Yes the hat and glasses do come off!
