PH group 4th Impact makes it to 'X Factor UK' top 5
MANILA, Philippines – Filipino group 4th Impact made it to the Top 5 on X Factor UK Sunday, November 22 (Monday, November 23 Manila time).
The ladies performed "We Found Love" with the other top 6 finalists. On Saturday, November 21, the group performed Christina Aguilera's "Ain't No Other Man."
The group was the second to be called safe onstage after Lauren Murray. The finalists include Che Chesterman, Reggie N Bollie, and Louisa Johnson.
Anton Stephans from Simon Cowell's group was eliminated after he got the lowest votes in the sing-off round.
4th Impact member Almira posted a short message on Twitter after the show.
Lord your the Best- Thanks for everyone who voted for us and for keeping us in the competition Maraming salamat po- almira— 4TH IMPACT (@4thImpactMusic) November 22, 2015
Meanwhile, some fans of the show were not pleased when Lauren was seen appearing to brush off the hand of one 4th Impact's members when she tried to hug her.
Very ignorant of Lauren Murray to push the girl away from 4th impact when they got through .. She only wanted a hug #XFactor— Lisa B (@lisab71x) November 22, 2015
But after thanking her fans, Lauren addressed the issue on Twitter, and so did 4th Impact, putting any rumors of a feud to rest.
OMG! Just to clear up I said come on che!! People love abit of drama I adore 4th impact— Lauren Murray (@laurenmurray) November 22, 2015
The ladies of 4th Impact appeared in a Twitter video with Lauren and asked fans to stop calling out on Twitter because they were actually friends, and that Lauren has actually been very nice to them.
The competition will narrow down to the top 4 next week, when the remaining finalists perform songs with a "jukebox" theme. – Rappler.com
