Filipino group 4th Impact continue their impressive stint on the?X-Factor UK, with an explosive performance of Beyonce’s “Work It Out” during the 3rd live show last Saturday.
The quartet delivered another great number that earned a standing ovation from the judges despite one of the members having a fainting spell.
“Unfortunately, one of my little dollies Celina has passed out and was taken in an ambulance,? said Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, the group’s mentor. ?She’s okay now. I offered them the opportunity to not perform and to play the dress run. They’ve insisted on performing,” she added just before her girls went on.
The girls channeled their inner Sasha Fierce dressed in silver mini dresses and heels. After the performance, an obviously still shaken Celina was ushered to a seat, whom the judges commended for being strong.
“We should make this very quick, because of what you’ve been through, I was backstage when all this happened,” said judge Simon Cowell.
?All I’m going to tell you is, I’ve done this a lot of years, that was under the circumstances, one of the most incredible performance we have ever seen on this show unbelievable. And you do actually forget the pressure, and particularly after today what happened to you, it was outstandingly good. I hope you?re okay, sweetheart,? Simon said.
“Celina, you really were a hero tonight, well done,” said Rita Ora.
?I’m so proud of all of you for getting up in those circumstances. You had the opportunity to use the dress run tapes, you said ‘No, absolutely not, we’re here,’? Cheryl said.
The coach also tweeted how proud she was of her girls for pushing through:
What a day/night! @4thImpactMusic did me proud tonight. 5 minutes before they took to the stage I was told they wouldn't be performing ?????

Celina tweeted to reassure fans of her health:
1st of all I want to thank God for giving me the strength to perform last night. Thank you all for praying for me! Feeling better now – Cel?

?I don?t think I really need to say anything, do I?? the usually hard-to-please Simon Cowell said after that earlier performance. ?You?re great singers, you?ve got a great attitude ? I have to hand this to you tonight, you?ve done an outstanding job.?
