X Factor reject is through to Judges’ Houses after Ivy Grace Paredes forced to leave competition
Honey G is through to the Judges’ Houses on X Factor after Ivy Grace Paredes was forced to leave due to visa issues. Uh, what?
As fans who watched Sunday night’s show will remember, Honey G was ejected from the Six Chair Challenge without even acquiring a seat.
Sharon Osbourne said to the Over 25 hopeful on Sunday: “Honestly, I am very rarely stumped for words but I just feel right now I cannot give you a seat.”
Despite her words, Honey G has now been picked over candidates who did receive a seat to accompany Osbourne and the rest of the Over 25 category in Los Angeles.
Filipina favourite Ivy Grace Paredes could not take up her place in Osbourne’s category in time for filming due to a visa issue, which meant she was not allowed to enter the US.
It was revealed last week that despite her show-stopping performance to acquire a seat, Paredes would be leaving the show. An X Factor spokesperson said: “As with all contestants travelling to the US for Judges Houses, Ivy was required to have a visa.
“Unfortunately there was an issue with her application being approved which meant that she was not granted a visa in time and sadly had to withdraw from the competition.”
Honey G will now join fellow Over 25s Samantha Atkinson, James Wilson, Relley C, Christopher Peyton and Janet Grogan in Los Angeles as they compete for a place in the live show segment of the competition.
