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!
