Pinoy group 4th Impact enters Top 6 of 'X Factor UK'
(Philstar.com) - November 21, 2015 - 11:48pm

MANILA, Philippines All-Filipino girl group 4th Impact survived the latest elimination on "X Factor UK," making them part of the competition's top six, on Saturday night (Sunday morning, Philippine time).

The group performed the Christina Aguilera hit "Ain't No Other Man" during the British reality talent show's Love and Heartbreak theme week.

The Filipino act, composed of sisters Mylene, Celina, Irene and Almira Cercado, received raves from "X Factor UK" judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora.

Cowell said the group's performance was professional and sassy, but criticized the girls for not showing their individual personality during the performance.

"I want to get to know you as individuals. And I don't think you've quite been given the song yet to get that over," he said.

Fernandez-Versini said: "I think because they are so professional and they are so tight always, it is really easy to overlook the fact they’ve come from halfway around the world... they're miss their families, and I have so much respect for you getting up there every week.”

In a surprise twist, voting lines were opened for 15 minutes after all the seven finalists performed to eliminate one contestant.

Mason Noise was cut from the competition, and one more will be eliminated from the show on Sunday (Monday morning, Philippine time).

4th Impact has been getting consistent raves since the start of the live shows last month, but they will have to best tough competition before making it to the "X Factor UK" finals next month.

This week, 17-year-old Louisa Johnson received a standing ovation for her performance of James Bay's "Let It Go."
