Meanwhile, on Saturday's (05.11.16) show, Simon Cowell blasted critics of Honey G and praised her performance of Criss Cross' 'Jump'.
He said: "I have to say something Honey G, you know what, that is why this show is called 'The X Factor'.
"On paper this shouldn't work but once again tonight you stepped up Honey G. There are so many people getting their knickers in a twist over you, but music can be fun. You are fun and entertaining and you are also one of the nicest contestants we have ever had on the show."
Simon was not the only judge to praise Honey G, with Nicole calling her performance "fricking crazy".
She said: "You have earned my respect. All the hard work you are putting in is paying off. That was fricking crazy."
And her mentor Sharon Osbourne added: "I am so happy for you and cannot wait for the Honey G album."
The rapper was thrilled with the feedback and vowed to continue her winning streak all the way to the final.
She told host Dermot O'Leary: "I am here to switch things up, ready to take it to the finals and go all the way."
