Sharon Osbourne forgot the name of her own act on The X Factor and it was mortifying

It's the weekend, time for @TheXFactor

IT’S THE 13TH season of The X Factor and while ratings aren’t quite what they used to be, it seems some of the judges have mentally checked out of the show too.

Last night, Sharon Osbourne struggled to remember the name of her act, Saara Alto, while introducing her performance to the viewers at home.

What followed was a mortifying few seconds of telly:

She was ‘aided’ by Louis Walsh uselessly shouting ‘FINLAND’ at her (it’s where Aalto is from, but damned if it was any help to Sharon).

What makes matters worse is this is the third time Osbourne has made a balls of announcing Aalto’s performances – on Saturday night, she was tricked by Simon Cowell into introducing the wrong act, and at the first live show, she claimed Aalto was Danish.

Tune in to @TheXFactor on @ITV tonight at 7.30pm!
