After receiving the lowest number of public votes, the all-Filipina group 4th Impact was out of the The X-Factor UK competition as per Metro Manila (CNN Philippines).
It was when the 4th Impact group’s mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was speaking to the girls when Celina suddenly collapsed. She screamed for medical assistance, The Mirror reports.
The producers carried her backstage immediately where she received treatment from paramedics.
The Cercado sisters landed in the bottom two after their first ballad performance alongside Britain’s Lauren Murray after the week’s public vote.
From musical film Dreamgirls, Irene, Mylene, Almira, and Celina performed the power ballad “And I Am Telling You? whereas Murray sang her rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love.”
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 4th Impact’s mentor, stood by her girls. She voted for Murray to leave the competition, while judge Rita Ora also stood by her mentee Murray. She chose the 4th Impact to be eliminated.
Leaving the deciding vote to judge Simon Cowell, Judge Nick Grimshaw agreed with Ora and voted for the Cercado sisters to be booted out.
The Filipino band thanked the British public for their support and gracefully bowed out as per itv.com
“You guys accepted us and welcomed us into your hearts and that’s unforgettable, thank you so much,” said Irene. She addressed the British audience saying this because, inspite of being Filipinos in a foreign country, they were accepted and welcomed.
Cheryl made an appearance later on ITV2 spin-off show ?The Xtra Factor . She looked visibly shaken by the incident, telling hosts Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom that she was ?shocked? by the evening?s events?as per huffingtonpost.co.uk
Simon Cowell?s friend Sinitta also tweeted: ?#Selena from @4thImpactMusic just collapsed on stage and carried off by paramedics @TheXFactor [sic].?
However, Celina has collapsed on the show before this incident. She collapsed backstage moments before she was due to perform with her sisters. It happened earlier this month.
After the group 4th Impact’s elimination, it leaves Reggie ‘N’ Bollie, Che Chesterton, Lauren and Louisa Johnson, reaching to next week’s semi-final.
