4th Impact’s first X-Factor UK live show not a ‘Problem’
Tackling another Ariana Grande hit, Filipino girl group “4th Impact” seemed to have no problem with their first live show performance in the British talent TV program X-Factor UK.
The female group took the stage on Sunday morning (Manila time) with their rendition of “Problem,” which wowed the judges anew.
Simon Cowell said that aside from their vocal prowess, what sets 4th Impact from the rest is their passion.
“That was fantastic. You know what’s great about you girls? You are great singers, and you’ve got attitude and you are passionate. I’ve had to hand this to you tonight. You’ve done an outstanding job,” Cowell said.
“That voice, how does it come out of that body? I can’t even understand,” Rita Ora added.
Nick Grimshaw, meanwhile, noted that the song was a perfect choice for the girls, considering that it was only a replacement to their first choice, Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance.”
Their mentor Sheryl Fernandez-Versini said the show was blessed to have the Filipino girl group.
“I couldn’t be more proud. Please stop thanking us because we are thankful to have you,” she said.
Fourth power, better known as the Cercado sisters in the Philippines, first impressed the judges with their rendition of Jesse J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj hit “Bang Bang,” which also went viral online. YG
