All-Filipino girl group, 4TH Impact, opened the second live performance show of The X Factor UK this week to resounding applause from the judges and the audience. They performed “Sound Of The Underground,” the song that launched Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and her own group Girls Aloud, as one of the biggest pop sensations in the UK. They mashed up the track with another pop hit, “The Clapping Song.”

Simon praised the group, “I thought you looked better than last week. The choreography was better, vocals great, harmonies great. You are a band who rehearse like crazy, are ready for the real world. You’ve done great; you always do great.”

Rita applauded the girls for their solid performance and said, “Can I just say what I love the most is that your identity now is coming into your own. Even though you are sisters, you are each individuals at the same time. Vocally, it sounded great.”

During the Results show, 4TH Impact was the first group announced to be safe and moving on to the third live show next week on The X Factor UK.

Filipino-British singer Seann Miley Moore sang “California Dreaming.” Rita Ora and Boys’ mentor Nick Grimshaw gave him a standing ovation after the performance. Rita said, “It was like I was watching a movie in slow motion. Vocally, you are very solid. You’re just intoxicating.” Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was also impressed and said she was “spellbound”. Though Simon Cowell admitted that Seann has an “amazing presence and a spectacular voice,” he described the performance as “lazy”.

At the Results show, Mason Noise and Seann sang for survival. The judges were split 2 and 2; this left the decision to the public vote which revealed that they opted to save Mason Noise and send Seann home leaving the audience in shock. “It’s been an incredible journey. But the show must go on,” said Seann when asked about his reaction to his elimination.

4TH Power will compete next week with the remaining acts on The X Factor UK. These include Reggie n Bollie, Mason Noise, Ché Chesterman, Anton Stephans, Max Stone, Louisa Johnson, Lauren Murray, and Monica Michael.
