MANILA, Philippines – Filipino group 4th Impact continued to impress the judges this week on X Factor UK, performing Beyonce’s “Work It Out,” during the 3rd live show, Saturday, November 14 (Sunday, November 15, Manila).
The group received positive feedback from the judges despite one of the members, Celina fainting before the show. Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, the group’s mentor, cofirmed that Celina passed out and was treated immediately.
“Unfortunately, one of my little dollies Celina has passed out and was taken in an ambulance. She’s okay now. I offered them the opportunity to not perform and to play the dress run. They’ve insisted on performing,” she said.
The ladies did well and even earned a standing ovation from all 4 judges, but it was clear that after the performance, Celina was not feeling well again and had to be supported by her sisters. She immediately took a seat after the performance.

“We should make this very quick, because of what you’ve been through, I was backstage when all this happened,” said 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 performances 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.
Cheryl said that she was proud of them for pushing through.
“You had the opportunity to use the dress run tapes, you said ‘No, absolutely not, we’re here,’” she said.
