4th Impact Trash Simon Cowell During Filipino Interview? Read The Translated Interview Here!

Filipino girl group 4th Impact, who have made it to the Top Five of X Factor UK, recently chatted with Iya Villania of their local Filipino news station 24 Oras. The group, composed of sisters Mylene, Celina, Irene, and Almira Cercado, talked of their experience on the show and how excited they are to have come this far.

With their home country behind their backs, 4th Impact shared that they ultimately feel “blessed,” having not expected to come this far in the competition.

The girls added how grateful they are to share their “God-given talent” every week, going on to say how thankful they are for the guidance they have been shown by friends, family, and God. They then turned to their Filipino fans, thanking them for the overwhelming amount of support they have given.

Following the short message, Villania questioned the sisters as to what wise words X Factor UK judge Simon Cowell had for them.

“What is Simon Cowell’s advice sa inyo (for you)?” she inquired.

Alam niyo po si Sir Simon Cowell,” they started, putting a stress on the ‘sir,’ “pero pag dito, ‘Simon Cowell lang’ — talagang bumobow-bow pa siya samin, tas sinasabi niya, ‘Very impressed ako sa inyong magkakapatid,’ sabi niya po, and ngayon lang daw siya nakakita ng talent na ganito na magkakapatid po.

(“You know, Sir Simon Cowell — but here, he’s just known as ‘Simon Cowell’ — he said while even bowing to us, “I’m very impressed with you sisters,” saying how this is the first time he has ever seen talent like ours among siblings.”)

Kasi po until now star struck pa rin kami sa kanya pero pag nasa backstage lagi po siyang naghu-hug, nagbebeso. Lagi niyang sinasabi, ‘Are you enjoying the show? Are you enjoying everything?’ Gusto niya po i-make sure na kahit ginagawa namin the best namin dapat daw po ine-enjoy namin gawin.”

(“Until now we’re still star struck around [Cowell], but backstage he’s all hugs and kisses. He always asks us, ‘Are you enjoying the show? Are you enjoying everything?’ He wants to make sure that even when we’re doing our best, we enjoy doing it.”)
