Many X Factor viewers were unhappy with Sunday night’s show. They claimed that the first performance from the contestants looked like it was mimed.

The final five acts – Honey G, Five After Midnight, Saara Alto, Emily Middlemas and Matt Terry – took to the stage in matching red and black outfits to do an EJ classic, Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting).

 A spokesperson for The X Factor has since advised contestants ‘absolutely did not mime in the group ensemble performance.”
 
But quite a few remain unconvinced.
