Pinay girl group 4th Impact ended their journey on The X-Factor UK competition after receiving the lowest number of public votes after a deadlock on Sunday (Monday, November 30, PHT).
After their first ballad performance, 4th Impact were eliminated from the show on after landing in the bottom two alongside Lauren Murray.
Singing for their survival, 4th Impact performed the Broadway classic “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” while Murray did a cover of Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love.”
4th Impact’s mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini voted for Murray to leave the competition, while judge Rita Ora chose the 4th Impact to be booted out.Judge Nick Grimshaw voted for the Cercado sisters to be axed while Simon Cowell voted for Murray to leave.
The vote was sent to Deadlock when the judges failed to agree on who to send home, with the girlband getting the lowest number of votes from the public.
After the announcement, Almira said: “We just want to thank the British public. The fact that we’re on this stage, this is already a prize for us. Even if we are Filipinos, you guys accepted us and welcomed us in your hearts. That’s unforgettable. Thank you so much.”
Meanwhile, Celina collapsed onstage just moments after the live show ended. Reports said that the singer fell unconscious after the sing-off and had to be tended to by paramedics.
The group later took to Twitter to tell their fans that Celina is ‘OK now’ and to keep believing.
Ché Chesterman, Louisa Johnson, Reggie & Bollie, and Lauren Murray advance to the Top 4 of X-Factor UK Season 12.
Despite the elimination, the Cercado sisters will still join the The X-Factor UK tour in 2016.
