4th Impact have been eliminated from "The X Factor" UK 2015.
The show's quarter-final results shocked many as 4th Impact, the Filipino girl band of sisters Mylene, Irene, Almira and Celena, were one of the most consistent performers this season with a huge fan base.
4th Impact were placed in the bottom two along with Lauren Murray. They sang "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" for survival, while Lauren performed "Vision Of Love". Simon Cowell and Cheryl Versini-Fernandez voted to keep 4th Impact while Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora voted for Lauren, leading to a deadlock.
So, the pendulum swung back to public votes and 4th Impact were sent home.
The girls from the Philippines performed "I'll Be There" by Jackson 5 and "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea / "Rich Girl" by Gwen Stefani on Saturday, earning praise from the judges. Their renditions were awesome, showcasing a little bit more of their individual talents as Simon Cowell suggested last week. Almira's whistle note was cool and there was rap and dance, too. But alas! They were eliminated from the show.
Another shocking incident happened on Sunday night. Celina, the youngest of the sisters (19-year-old) collapsed soon after their elimination from the show was announced. It is reported that Cheryl and the girls looked visibly shocked as Celina passed out on stage and paramedics were called in before being taken away on an ambulance.
The good news is Celena has recovered. The group updated about Celina's health on Twitter and thanked the public for their support.
Thanks to all who voted for us why we reach this far.Celina is ok now thanks for your prayers and love❤️ - love u guys.Lets keep believing

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini also tweeted: "Thank you for being the most gracious, humble & special little souls I have ever had the pleasure of working with...love you." She went on to thank everyone who "voted and supported 4th Impact this far. (sic)"
"The X Factor" UK 2015 will enter semi-finals next week with the remaining four acts — Reggie n Bollie, Che Chesterman, Louisa Johnson and Lauren Murray — performing again for a spot in the finals.
