‘Tuneless Car Crash’: Katy Perry Bombs On The X Factor Final

When it comes to writing amazing pop songs, Katy Perry is among the most talented artists in the world – but tonight’s X Factor final showed she’s not always the best at actually singing them.

The poor star appeared to suffer some serious pitching issues on the show tonight, as she belted out her new single ‘Unconditionally’.

The star had previously popped up on the show to perform ‘Roar’, and has proven on her live tours throughout the years that she’s a beyond-capable vocallist – so what happened tonight?

Whatever the reason, Twitter most certainly was not impressed.

While some just outright labelled her “AWFUL” (in capital letters and everything), others compared her to Nicole Scherzinger’s sensational duet with Sam Bailey the night before; bemoaning the fact that Nicole’s career is considerably quieter than Katy’s.

Check out some of the harshest tweets below… Katy fans, you might want to look away.

Interestingly, ALL YouTube uploads have (at time of writing) been removed – but you can see it again over on ITV Player.
