X Factor viewers are raging after two of the acts broke an important rule
Were you watching X Factor this weekend?
If so, you'll know that this week the contestants were singing George Michael songs to mark his incredible career but this didn't exactly go to plan.
Two of the acts decided to sing songs that George Michael covered instead of ones from his impressive back catalogue and unsurprisingly, viewers were really annoyed.
The Cutkelvins siblings sang Seal’s Killer and The Temptations’ Papa Was A Rolling Stone, songs that George Michael sang before while Grace Davies went with I Can't Make You Love Me, the Bonnie Raitt version.
Fans of the show expressed their rage at the fact that these contestants 'broke' the long-standing rule by sending the below tweets.
Needless to say, they were NOT happy.

Interesting that grace is butchering a song that isn't a George Michael song on George Michael week , atrocious #xfactor

Yep, that decision on Grace's behalf didn't impress viewers, it had the very opposite effect.
The same goes for The Cutkelvins too.
In my opinion The Cutkelvins should have left last night not Jack & Joel.. They were the weakest act, didn't really perform a George Michael song & they are still struggling with the whole "being a group" when performing... #XFactor

That was really poor from The Cutkelvins. They butchered the song. Was that even George Michael's? Not a tribute if you don't sing his song #XFactor

George Michael has so many incredible songs...so why didn't the Cutkelvins sing one of them?!

Yep, this weekend shows didn't impress X Factor viewers so here's hoping next week's Crazy in Love theme is an improvement...
