Fans were shocked at their untimely elimination. What happened?
The Top 4 Finalists on the X Factor UK are:
1. Reggie and Bollie
2. Che Chesterman
3. Louisa Johnson
4. Lauren Murray.
Although the group received praises from their latest performance last Saturday; 4th Impact performed Michael Jackson’s hit, “I’ll Be There” and a mash-up of “Rich Girl” and Fancy”, so their eliminations was a shock to their thousands of fans around the world.
It was the first time that 4th Impact sang a slow song or ballad. As expected, the X Factor Judges namely, Rita Ora, Simon Cowell, Nick Grimshaw and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini had only praises for the sisters.
Here are some judges’ comments:
“Girls, can I be honest with you? When you walked on wearing identical dresses again and I saw flowers in the background, I was dreading it. Then you started to sing and everything changed. ‘B,’ your vocal was absolutely outstanding at parts. The best you sounded so far.”
After 4th Impact’s 2nd performance, Simon Cowell said:
“Wow. At last we have seen four personalities! Thank you. Why has it taken so long? This was fun and cute and current. I now know you all. This was so much better. This was great.”
Last week, Simon Cowell has expressed his desire to see the individuality of each of the sisters, and apparently he was able to see that in the second performance of 4th Impact.
“Honestly, I loved the relationship you have with the record. The Jackson 5 (brothers) were related and you are related. And I think only the people that have connection to each other can sing a record like that and do it justice.”
“You did a fantastic job and you nailed that performance.”
“You do entertain us every week. It was great to see a completely different side of you. As Simon said, some of the vocals are incredible. There are going to be dolphins arriving in Wembley.”
With the elimination of 4th Impact, who would emerge as the Grand Winner of X Factor UK?
