Pinoy Pride: 4th Power makes it to Six Chair Challenge
In The X Factor UK, we saw the popular girl group 4th Power perform another high-octane number complete with choreography and belting out the high notes in the second audition round at Bootcamp.
For this round, the girls decided to take on David Guetta’s hit “Titanium.” Judges were all smiles and the reaction from them and the hosts were mostly positive. Host Olly Murs commented, “That’s an audition.” Simon Cowell said that the performance “wasn’t as strong as their other two (auditions)” but said he would love to work with them.
The all-Filipino girl group is composed of sisters Mylene, Celina, Irene and Almira Cercado aged 19-27. The video of their first audition where they performed Jessie J’s hit “Bang Bang” has gone viral and has amassed over 15 million views on The X Factor UK’s official Youtube channel in the last four weeks.
4th Power now moves on to the Six Chair Challenge that starts next week where they will compete with 14 other acts in the Group category. The Six Chair Challenge will whittle down each category, Girls, Overs, Boys, and Groups, to just six acts each.
Although not shown in today’s episode, another Filipino, Neneth Lyons, the 37-year old full-time mother from Chelmsford, also made it to the Six Chair Challenge as part of the Overs category. She competes with 16 other acts in the category.
