The first X Factor live show certainly turned heads as Honey G brought the audience to their feet with a rousing rendition of 2Pac's California Loving .

And if that wasn't enough, the Harrow star may have even melted the heart of one of the music industry's biggest grinches, Simon Cowell .

After Honey G, whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford, closed the show, Mr Cowell said: "I don't know what just happened, and here's the weird thing, I loved It.

"I really like you, I thought you weren't serious when we first came in but I realise now. Only Sharon Osbourne could do this."

To which Honey G replied, "massive respect to Sharon Osbourne."

Honey G couldn't believe her ears

This performance is despite the fact the 32-year-old landlady has palmed off by the petition signed by nearly 60,000 people asking her to be booted off the singing show.

But there is no question the Harrow contestant is in it to win it as she stole the show in a live show preview trailer earlier in the week.

The rapper insisted she's "a heavyweight" after winning a reprieve on the ITV talent show .

But a mounting number of X Factor fans have called for Sharon Osbourne to think again after the judge admitted she was taking a risk in choosing Honey G.

However, Honey G retorted they were just "haters who have done it out of spite" and told getwestlondon earlier in the week her sole focus will be impressing at the performances to come.

What are you saying?

Well, Honey G is bound to divide opinion but what are people saying on social media?

Some negative

Ouch...

Even the celebs couldn't resist getting involved.

Others agree with Simon

They liked the Harrow singer

And more celeb fandom!
