Seven things we know about the girl band who wowed The X Factor judges



1. 4th Power are sisters Mylene, Irene, Almira and Celina, and they hail from Santiago City in the Philippines. They travelled rather a long way to make their mark on X Factor, revealing on the programme that they flew in specially for the show.

2. The quartet – who have also performed under the names Gollayan Sisters and Cercado Sisters – are aged between 19 and 27, and told X Factor viewers that they have been singing as a band since 2001.

3. They maintain the reason they wanted to take part in X Factor UK was not only to see Simon Cowell but because, as one of them put it, ‘we wanted to see Queen Elizabeth.’ Bless.

4. While they may be unfamiliar to British viewers, the band are certainly no strangers to the talent show scene. In fact they caused quite a stir when they appeared – singing under the group name MICA – on South Korean show Superstar K6 in 2014.


5. They also do a nifty cover version of Alicia Keys’ Girl On Fire:

6. Oh, and they’re no strangers to singing Bang Bang either.

7. The bookies certainly seem to have their eye on the girls, having installed them at 7-1 second favourites to win the series after only the first show – with only fellow auditionee Louisa Johnson ahead of them.’It’s early days, but they are the ones to catch,’ said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Standing ovation: Simon Cowell (right) gushed over their well-choreographed routine which got 'the biggest four yeses  ever given'


The girls from Manila have previously gone under the monikers MICA and The Gollayan Sisters and are immensely popular online, with more than two million views on YouTube.

In 2012, they won the top-rated Philippine's X Factor-style TV talent show It's Showtime and made the final eight last year on Korean singing contest Superstar K.

They have also twice won the top prize at the World Championships of Performing Arts – watched closely by industry talent spotters in Hollywood – and have played private concerts for wealthy partygoers at lavish parties in Monaco and 'across half of Europe'.

The sisters credit their success to a strong faith in God and reportedly pray before every performance.

The competition will narrow down to the top 4 next week, when the remaining finalists perform songs with a "jukebox" theme.

4th Impact wows X-Factor UK crowd with Christina Aguilera hit

Published November 22, 2015 8:59pm

All-Filipino girl group 4th Impact are officially part of the Top 6 contestants of international competition "X-Factor UK" after rocking Christina Aguilera's "Ain't No Other Man" for their fourth live performance on Saturday.

Following the week's theme of "Love and Heartbreak," sisters Mylene, Celina, Irene and Almira delivered another "brilliant, professional, sassy" performance, according to judge Simon Cowell.

However, he added, "Here's my only thing which I would be doing now if I was only your mentor. You have to bring out your individual personalities much more now. At the moment, it's so tight, the 4 of you, I kind of want to get to know you as individuals. And I don't think quite you've been given the song yet to get that over,"

Meanwhile, judge Rita Ora said that she liked it and thought it was "professional... [and] rehearsed," while judge Nick Grimshaw described it as a "proper entertainment from beginning to end."

Judge and Groups mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini gave the group a standing ovation after their energetic performance.

“Honestly, that wasn’t rehearsed. We had really tough week. They only got it yesterday. And I think because they are so professional and they are so tight always, sometimes it’s really easy to overlook the fact that they’ve come from halfway across the world, they are all the way from the Philippines, they are missing home...I have so much respect for you girls,” she said.

The Filipina girl group 4th Impact comprising the Cercado sisters became the center of attention together with fellow contestant Lauren Murray after an incident that happened during the results night of The X Factor UK Season 12 last Sunday, November 22 (U.K. time).

The sisters Mylene, Irene, Celina, and Almira went straight to Lauren and Louisa Johnson at the safe zone for a hug after surviving the fourth eliminations night.

Eagle-eyed viewers of the show saw how Lauren appeared to have shoved the arm of Mylene who was about to hug her.

Netizens went ablaze after seeing the incident on live TV.

Some Twitter users claimed that the 25-year-old singer also uttered an expletive while pushing away the 4th Impact member.




On Twitter, Lauren clarified what happened on stage and said: “OMG! Just to clear up I said come on che!! People love a bit of drama I adore 4th impact <3”








The 4th Impact sisters also uploaded a 30-second video on Twitter with Lauren and the other finalists, including Louisa Johnson and Reggie ‘N Bollie, to show that all was swell with all of them.

Almira supported Lauren’s explanation and told their followers not to bash their fellow contestant: “This is Lauren and please stop telling her anything because she’s the one who supports us a lot!”

She continued, “We love Lauren, please! She’s saying, ‘Come on, Che!’"

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino group 4th Impact continued to impress the judges on the X Factor UK, Saturday, November 27, when they performed the Jackson 5's classic song "I'll Be There" for jukebox week.

Before the performance, the group met mentor Cheryl Versini-Fernandez.

"We finally get to sing a ballad," Cheryl told the girls, giving them the opportunity to show another side to them.

The girls also had an interview and visit at the Philippine embassy in London.

During their "I'll Be There" performance, Almira revealed her whistling technique a la Mariah Carey, which got applause from the audience.

Simon Cowell praised the ladies yet again.

"I was really dreading it. And then you started to sing and everything changed," he said. Simon has previously told the ladies and Cheryl that they should also focus on highlighting their personalities as individuals.

Somehow, at this point of the competition, he still could not tell the sisters apart. He called Almira "B" when he praised her for her whistle.

"B (Almira) your vocal was absolutely outstanding at parts. I thought, vocally, the best you've sounded so far,” Simon added.

Nick Grimshaw
meanwhile said: “It’s great to see a completely different side of you and get you to do an emotional song and we got to hear all of you singing individually... that high note, there’s gonna be like, dolphins arriving in Wembley.”

Rita Ora
said she loved how the girls connected with the song.

"Do you know what I love with that performance is the relationship that you have with the record 'I’ll be There'. It’s like Jackson 5. It’s like you guys are related. They were related. And I think only the people that have connection to each other can sing a record like that and do it justice," she said.

The girls also performed a mash-up of the song "Fancy Girl."

Last week, the girls made it to the Top 5 performing the song "We Found Love" with the other top 6 finalists. On Saturday, November 21, the group performed Christina Aguilera's "Ain't No Other Man."

Results of the live show will be announced Sunday, November 29, (Monday, November 30, Manila.) –

Simon's 4th Impact faux-pas was so staged









After 4th Impact's first song, a cheesy version of The Jackson 5's I'll Be There, Simon Cowell rudely showed off that he didn't know the sisters' names, calling them "A" and "B".

And, whaddya know? For their second song, a much more fun and on-brand mash-up of Gwen Stefani and Iggy Azalea, the girls displayed distinct looks and danced out of boxes with their names printed on them.

The whole sequence of events felt almost as choreographed as they are - but way less stylish.

PH group 4th Impact eliminated from 'X Factor UK'

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – In a heartbreaking twist on X Factor UK, Filipino group 4th Impact was eliminated from the show on Sunday, November 29 (Monday morning, November 30 in Manila).











The group was in the bottom two with Lauren Murray during the announcement for the top 4. Before the announcement, the girls performed "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going."




When it was announced that there was a tie between the girls and Lauren Murray for the elimination, the judges also voted, with Simon Cowell and Cheryl Versini-Fernandez wanting the girls to stay and Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora voting for Lauren to stay.

The decision reverted back to the hands of the public – and it was later announced that the journey was over for 4th Impact. (WATCH: PH group 4th Impact performs 'I'll Be There' on X Factor UK)






At their last performance, the judges praised the girls for their renditions of Jackson 5's "I'll Be There," and their mash-up of Gwen Stefani and Eve’s “Rich Girl” and Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX’s “Fancy.”

“Girls, you entertain us week after week," said judge Nick Grimshaw after "I'll Be There." "But it was great to see a different side of you and get you to do an emotional song. That high note, I mean, there will be dolphins arriving at Wembley. It was great to hear you all individually.”

Rita Ora commented “What I loved the most about that performance is the relationship you have with the record, it is like Jackson 5. Only people who have a connection with each other can sing a record like that and do it justice."

After the “Rich Girl” and “Fancy” mash-up, both Simon and Cheryl were on their feet. Simon said that he was glad to finally see personalities of the girls on stage. He said the performance was fun, cute and current. Rita said that although she was not a fan of the styling, she couldn’t deny the girls’ vocal prowess.

Nick said that it was super entertaining and that he couldn’t wait to see the girls on tour.

4th Impact will be part of The X Factor 2016 Live Tour, which kicks off on February 12, 2016 in Aberdeen. The X Factor 2016 Live Tour is a UK-wide arena tour.

Meanwhile, Lauren joins Che Chesterman, Louisa Johnson, and Reggie ‘N’ Bollie in the top 4.

Good sports, the ladies thanked British fans for their support and for giving them a chance to perform for the audience.

Meanwhile after the sing-offs, it was reported that Celina collapsed and needed medical attention.

The group posted an update on her condition.

Celina previously also fainted in a previous November 14 episode. She later joined her sisters to sing Beyonce's "Work It Out," knocking it out of the park.

Cheryl also took to Twitter to thank the girls.

Although Rita Ora voted for Lauren to stay, she also took to Twitter to comment on 4th Impact.

 4th Impact's Celina pictured after dramatic collapse on stage following X Factor elimination


    07:06, 30 Nov 2015



Celina stopped to smile briefly at cameras



4th Impact singer Celina was pictured being carried into an ambulance last night, after she dramatically collapsed on stage following the group's elimination from the X Factor.

Shocking scenes off screen saw Celina suddenly collapse on stage as the group were comforted by mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

Cheryl screamed for production to help and two producers raced to carry a stricken Celina backstage.

A spokesperson for the X Factor told Mirror Celebs: "Celina was taken unwell after the show came off air. An ambulance was called and she was seen by medics at the studio.

Celina wrapped up in a blanket and smiled at fans




Celina was wrapped up in a blanket


"She has since gone home to rest with her mother and her sisters."

Pictures show the moment the singer was carried by chair in to the back of an ambulance outside, surrounded by paramedics.

The youngster had her eyes closed at the time, but it's not clear if she was still unconscious.




The star was wheeled out by paramedics


Covered in a blanket, Celina rested her head back as she was treated on the scene.

An audience member said last night: "Everyone was saying their goodbyes to the girls and then suddenly Celina hit the floor.

"Her sisters were shocked and Cheryl started calling for people to help.

"Two men ran on stage and carried Celina backstage, she looked lifeless."







Cheryl was clearly shaken when Rochelle Humes joined her on stage for the start of the Xtra Factor.

When asked where the girls were she said Celina was being treated by paramedics.





Some time later, the band confirmed that Celina was OK.

They tweeted: "Thanks to all who voted for us why we reach this far.Celina is ok now thanks for your prayers and love (sic)."

X Factor 2015 results: 4th Impact's Celina collapses after being voted off, and 5 things we learned



The Filipino girl band 4th Impact are heading home, while Simon Cowell suffers the hiccups





 Things we learned last night:
1. 4th Impact's fanbase isn't as huge as we thought









They seemed to be massive around the world, but 4th Impact are goners already, despite initially looking like contenders for the final.

It seems that although all of their performances were slickly choreographed and impressively delivered, they just didn't have enough personality to last to the semi-finals. The public favour individuals they can root for, you see (and then turn their backs on five minutes later).

Obviously, despite being cruelly rejected by the voting public, the Filipino four-piece still love Britain, and the Queen, and Simon Cowell, and each other... and and and... yep, the trouble is, while their performances were sassy and even sexy, they seemed just a little too saccharine to our cyncial British ears.

Oh well, on to the next talent show for the girls.


 2. Celina collapses moments after the live show went off-air

Minutes after 4th Impact's elimination, Celina collapsed on stage and had to be treated by paramedics.






 She's fine now, but it's not the first time she's collapsed on the show - she passed out backstage just a few weeks ago, Olly Murs had to get her a chair to sit on while on stage.

X Factor hopefuls 4th Impact are 'pointless' says former judge Louis Walsh


The Irishman has expressed doubts that viewers will vote for the four-piece from the Philippines






Former X Factor judge Louis Walsh has said this year's act 4th Impact is pointless as he doesn't think anyone will vote for them.

The four-piece from the Philippines are competing in Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's Groups category.

Walsh, who was replaced by Nick Grimshaw this year, said the group is talented but might as well pack up and go home now - "wherever they are from".

"I don't see the point of the four girls from wherever they're from. I don't know who's going to vote for them," he told BANG.

"Where are they from? They're really good but I just don't see the point."

An ITV source told Mirror Online: "These comments don't feel relevant given that viewers have clearly voted for 4th Impact as otherwise they wouldn't have made the quarter-finals this weekend."


Contestant Lauren Murray has revealed she was sent death threats after being accused of "shoving" a member of 4th Impact during last week's live shows.

The aspiring singer, mentored by Rita Ora , was attacked by viewers after she appeared to reject a hug from one of the sisters as they celebrated being put through to next week's show.

“It’s absolutely ridiculous," she told the Radio Times. "I was so shocked about how one tiny thing can get so blown out of proportion.

"Even 4th Impact were so upset about it because they were like, ‘What is going on?






4th Impact did indeed stick up for Lauren: "Hello guys, we are 4th Impact and we want you to please stop telling [Lauren] anything because she loves us a lot and we love Lauren.

"It wasn't bad, okay? We love you!"

Is Louis Walsh right about 4th Impact? Have your say in the comments below

Music manager Walsh, who helped Westlife and Boyzone achieve success in the 90s, believes Louisa Johnson, 17, has what it takes to win the show but thinks Che Chesterman is nipping at her heels.


He explained: "There are two people I like in it. I like Louisa and Che. Either or.

"Che is an amazing singer. It doesn't matter what you look like if you've got the talent. I think Louisa is probably the biggest star.

"She's kind of Joss Stone. She'll be the best winner for me, from what I've seen, but I think the talent is really good on X Factor this year."
