In 2015, a group of sisters from the Philippines totally blew the X Factor UK judges away with their audition. The quartet, originally called 4th Power and later 4th Impact, delivered a powerhouse performance.
The women even received a standing ovation from the judges and audience. Check out the group’s amazing audition below, and read on to find out what the judges thought about it.
Girl Group From The Philippines Auditions For ‘X Factor’
The group was starstruck by the judges when they first walked out on stage. They revealed that they were sisters, and that they flew all the way from the Philippines to appear on the show.
The ladies have been singing together and competing since 2001. They demonstrated how in sync they are during their audition, in which they performed “Bang Bang” by Jessie J. The performance featured choreography in addition to their powerful voices.
The group had the judges and audience smiling and dancing along as they performed. The women were in tears after the performance, as the audience and judges cheered for them.
What Did The Judges Think Of The Performance?
Judge Cheryl said the group “took Wembley’s roof off.” She added, “You came out, you’re so demure. The music kicks in, you all turn into little bad girls up there. And it blew my mind.”
Rita Ora told the group that she wanted to be their sister. Nick Grimshaw predicted that their audition would “blow up.” Simon Cowell made it clear that the show welcomes contestants from around the world, calling it “one of the best” first auditions he’s ever seen.
Over the years, 4th Impact has competed in several other talent competitions. They won the World Championships of Performing Arts in 2006 and 2013, and reached eighth place in the South Korean talent show Superstar K6 in 2014.
During their time on The X Factor, 4th Power had to change their name to 4th Impact due to a copyright dispute with another group. They finished the competition in fifth place. The group has released several singles over the years, including one called “K(NO)W MORE” earlier this year.
