4th Power pose for a group shot outside of the ITV Studios in London, England on Tuesday morning (September 1).
The sisters — Mylene, Irene, Celina and Almira Cercado — have been thrown into the spotlight following an explosive first audition on X Factor, and there’s just a little bit of controversy around it.
4th Power are known as the Gollayan Sisters in the Philippines, where they are from, and were grand champions on ABS-CBN’s popular noontime variety show “It’s Showtime” in 2012.
But the sisters deny claims that they were flown out by the show to audition and instead came on their own, to “to fulfill their dream of performing before Simon Cowell.”
“We’ve been competing in different places. Some people are saying we should just give up, we’re not going to make it. We are like, ‘No, we love this. We love X Factor UK.’ We are living our dreams. We just can’t believe it’s happening,” Almira shared in a previous interview.
Watch their audition below!

Zendaya is doing something extra special for her birthday this year.
The 18-year-old actress/singer, who turns 19 TODAY, September 1, is launching a Crowdrise campaign to raise money for three young brothers who lost their parents to AIDS.
Back in July, Zendaya traveled to South Africa to learn about how HIV testing is done at an HIV Counseling and Testing Day, which was organized by the HEAIDS First Things First student health program and the international ProTest HIV Campaign of the Joint United Nations.
“Instead of presents, I want to help three brothers who inspired me beyond words on my recent trip with UNAIDS to South Africa,” Z wrote on the campaign page. “And I’m asking you, my amazing fans to help me. These three are supporting each other after losing both of their parents in a span of two years. They currently live in a temporary settlement, and with your support, I’m determined to move them into a safe home and hopefully help others just like them. Every dollar you donate will go directly to this cause. I can’t do it alone, but I believe that together we can truly change their lives.”
“When I performed ‘Honey, I’m Good’ on Dancing with the Stars last season, it was obviously exciting and a thrill, but there was something extra and deeper about being there,” the 31-year-old singer wrote on Facebook, explaining his reason to join the show.
Andy continued, “Anyone who knew my mother, knows she LOVED dance. Anytime it came on the TV her eyes would light up and would get lost in the screen. I remember countless times sitting with her and listening to her say, “My one regret in life is that I wish I had been a dancer.” If you have lost someone close in your life, you know that it can be tough to stay/feel connected to those who pass on. Maybe you hear a song and it reminds you of them, or every time you eat a certain dish you feel their presence somehow. These things become really important in ways others might not understand. All I can say is that when I went in to do a rehearsal for DWTS last season, I was overcome with emotion and just barely kept my shit together. She would have completely lost her mind to sit front row at Dancing With The Stars and I could feel that in my chest loud and clear.
“So this one is for you mom. I don’t know how to dance, but I’m pretty sure that wherever you are it’s going to make you very happy to see me try. I miss you, I love you, and I will be stretching my hammies to make you proud. Game on. #DWTS.”

“The 5th Wave” summary: After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie (Moretz) runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker (Alex Roe). Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
The 28-year-old Pretty Little Liars star dished out her best fitness secrets. Check it:
On her athleisure line Fit to Wander: “I wanted to put a special note from me in the collection, so I put positive affirmations in every single piece. I just think it has such a great impact on the rest of the day when you read them.”
On her favorite workouts: “I have to switch it up because I get bored, so I’ll try different classes. Cardio for me is a spin class. I think it’s great. I get so amped up with other people in the room, and there’s just a really good energy about it.”
On navigating the craft service table: “It’s called sharing. So instead of having my own, I’ll share with Ashley Benson. She’s probably my food partner in crime, so if she’s craving something, I’ll be like, “Let’s split it.’”
