Filipino girl group 4th Impact continues to wow audiences and the judges on the latest episode of the X-Factor UK.
The group, composed of Cerado sisters Almira, Mylene, Irene and Celina, wowed the crowd with their rousing performance of Ariana Grande?s song ?Problem? during the show?s first live show.
Initially, the girls were supposed to sing ?Shut Up and Dance? by Walk the Moon but changed their song choice at the last minute because it wasn?t working for them. The change definitely worked for them as they belted out the notes effortlessly.
?I don’t think I really need to say anything, do I?” Simon Cowell said, amidst wild reactions from the audience. “You’re great singers, you’ve got a great attitude – I have to hand this to you tonight, you’ve done an outstanding job.”
“I think you just set the level this competition needs to be at. It was incredible – it was perfect,” said judge Nick Grimshaw, adding that the song choice was on point.
?I couldn?t be more proud. Please stop thanking us because we are thankful to have you,? said judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. The foursome is one of three groups that went on to the live shows after being picked by group mentor Cheryl.
The quartet previously performed Christina Aguilera?s song ?Show Me How You Burlesque? for the spot on Cheryl?s team and the judges were blown away.
?It was absolute perfection for me? said judge Rita Ora. Even hard-to-please Simon Cowell was all-praises. ?I think you are actually amazing,? Simon said simply, then added ?I am thrilled that you have chosen this show, this country to compete in and I think that the British public are gonna fall in love with you.?
Bupsi and Alien Uncovered were the acts that were eliminated during that night?s double elimination round.
