Filipino Acts pass ‘The X Factor UK’ Boot Camp
Filipinos shone in the group performance during Boot Camp on The X Factor UK. 4th Power and Neneth Lyons both made it through to the next round of competitions. 4th Power, the all-Filipino girl group composed of sisters Mylene, Celina, Irene and Almira Cercado, aged 19-27, and Neneth Lyons, the 37-year old full-time mother from Chelmsford, performed in a group with four other acts singing Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.”
Prior to the performance, a short clip of the rehearsals was shown. Neneth said she was there ”to compete” while 4th Power said that was going to be “the performance of a lifetime.”
Clearly the outstanding performers of their group, 4th Power nailed the singing, dancing and hairography with their locks swinging and whipping as they did their routine. Neneth showed that she was a fantastic singer when she belted the bigger parts of the song and showed she was an equally good dancer during the group’s performance.
The other performers in the group were Louisa Johnson, Jasmine Leigh Morris, Andre Batchelor and Sherlyn Hamilton Shaw. Before giving the judges’ decision, Simon Cowell asked 4TH Power, Andre Batchelor and Jasmine Leigh Morris to step forward signaling the possible divide in the results. But in the end, he said that all acts went through as all screamed in relief and excitement.
The 4TH Power and Neneth Lyons move on to the next round of competitions, the Six Chair Challenge.
