The reactions of the celebrity judges and viewers to the elimination of A.K.A. JAM from the X Factor Philippines reality TV show on August 19, 2012, was one of shock. This is because A.K.A. JAM was considered one of the strongest contenders of the competition.
The Lucky Girls group on X Factor Philippines has been formed by the judges to retain some of the good singers in the female category, last July 22, 2012.
The X Factor Philippines premieres on Saturday, June 30, 2012 at ABS-CBN. The X Factor host is KC Concepcion, daughter of Sharon Cuneta, and mentor judges are Pilita Corrales, Martin Nievera, Charice, and Gary Valenciano.
