The X Factor UK: 4TH Impact Make Final 5 With Sassy Performance of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man”

4TH Impact - Final 5

The all-Filipino girl group 4TH Impact brought sassiness to this week’s Performance Show on The X Factor UK. Working with “Love and Heartbreak” as the week’s theme, the girls channelled Christina Aguilera performing “Ain’t No Other Man” to the delight of the judges and audience. They move on to the Final 5 of the singing competition.

Simon Cowell described the performance as “brilliant, professional, sassy.” He also did say that he didn’t think mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has given the group a song to show their individual personalities yet. Rita Ora lauded the sisters for being “tight, professional and rehearsed.”

Judge Nick Grimshaw said, “I think sometimes you’re so sweet it’s like candyfloss – a bit sweet and fluffy and airy. Tonight it felt a bit meaty, a bit nasty and I liked it.”

Cheryl paid tribute to 4TH Impact’s professionalism. She revealed that the group had only been given the track the day before the performance. “It’s sometimes really easy to overlook the fact that they’ve come from halfway across the world, all the way from the Philippines,” she said. She added that had so much respect for the girls for getting up on stage every week.

Eliminated this week were Mason Noise and Anton Stephans. 4TH Impact will compete next week with the remaining acts on The X Factor UK. These include Reggie n Bollie, Ché Chesterman, Louisa Johnson, and Lauren Murray.
