X Factor fans have branded the new Prize Fight “boring and unnecessary” after watching Grace Davies win a masterclass with Pink in New York.
The singer was pitted against Rak-Su in the show’s new twist, which has replaced the sing off.

Each week, the best act from Saturday and Sunday, as voted for by the public, will sing again to try and get a prize.
The twist was introduced by Simon Cowell as part of a number of changes he’s made to the format.
And while viewers are loving some of the new aspects of the show, the Prize Fact is certainly not one of them.
One fan tweeted: “This stupid prize fight on #TheXFactor is just a waste of everybody's time.”

While a second asked: “Is the sing off for the prize on #TheXFactor really necessary? We have heard these songs already!”
And a third wrote: “Knowing how the public vote, this prize fight shit is bollocks. Majority of the weeks it will roughly be the same people.”
After her name was called by Dermot O'Leary, Grace was completely overwhelmed and appeared to struggle to comprehend what was happening.
She will now fly to New York to meet Pink and have a masterclass with her before next week's competition.
Dear Simon, Bin the #PrizeFight gimmick on #xfactor. No one gives a flying squirrel who gets to see Pink. Signed, the UK.

Who came up with the prize fight concept? Totally pointless. #XFactor

Why on earth do we have a prize fight that we have to watch #XFactor

What EXACTLY does this “prize fight” add to @TheXFactor then? I am very confused @SimonCowell. Do we really care? #XFactor

What is this prize fight nonsense? Surely no one cares? #Xfactor

The #PrizeFight is a little ODD & over the top. As much as #XFactor needed a revamp, I’m not so sure this is the right way to go!🙈

#PrizeFight @TheXFactor They should definitely have to sing a different song. You can learn an extra song in a week.

Seems a bit weird voting for who wins the Prize Fight to see Pink 😯
Would have thought they would be too busy to go on holiday? 😂

I'm sure this #prizefight thing will last as long as the #lifeline and #flashvote #xfactor

Love how they've dedicated more voting time for the Prize Fight than the actual elimination…#XFactor

This whole prize fight thing is so rubbish. Least when it was the sing off the was passion behind it, I don't care who meets pink #XFactor

Prize Fight to see Pink is pointless. It's still a sing off and the new format states that we don't get them. Give it to both acts #XFactor

I am loling that no one @TheXFactor thought about learning two different songs for the pointless 'prize fight'.

I think #Xfactor should rethink this prize fight thing and bring back bottom 2. It makes no sense, the judges don’t do a thing.
