“X-Factor: UK” judge Simon Cowell wasn’t impressed with the performance of the all-Filipino female group, 4th Impact on Saturday night’s live show.

Crowd-favourite 4th Impact gave another powerful performance with “Ain’t No Other Man” by Christina Aguilera. With their powerful voices and tight dance moves, the group captured the hearts of the crowd once again, except Cowell.

Cowell praised the group’s yet another “brilliant,” “professional” and “sassy” performance but he “wanted more” from them. According to him, the group members need to bring out their individual personalities on stage.

“It is so tight as the four of you and I want to get to know you as individuals,” he said, as quoted by Telly Mix.

The judge noted that the all-Filipino female group has not yet found a perfect song that would showcase their individualities. He cleared to the group that he likes them but they should show who they are first in order to remain in the competition.

“I really like you, but to go to the next level, we have to know who you are,” he said.

The group’s mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini responded to Cowell’s comment revealing that she wasn’t informed with the week’s theme, “Heartbreak.” Despite the fact that the song was given to the group a day before their performance, Fernandez-Versini praised the group for their professionalism.

“I have so much respect for you girls every week for getting up there -- you’re not in your country, not speaking your language, not having home comforts,” she said.

Another judge Nick Grimshaw tagged their performance as “meaty” and “nasty,” while judge Rita Ora complimented them for their ability to sing and dance at the same time.

On Sunday, it was announced that the all-Filipino female group successfully made it to the top 5 of the competition, alongside Lauren Murray, Che Chesterman, Reggie N Bollie and Louisa Johnson.

4th Impact is the sole Filipino contestants in the British competition. Its members are sisters Mylene, Almira, Celina and Irene Cercado.
