We really hope 4th Impact's Celina is OK...
UPDATE: Following 4th Impact’s Celina’s shock collapse, Simon Cowell’s close friend Sinitta has revealed her theory behind what happened.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, she said: ‘I think it’s just those girls particularly never stop. They don’t stop, eat, relax, sleep. I think [they put too much pressure on themselves] to make their country [the Philippines] proud. It’s like old school, like the Jacksons etc. It’s like: “God, take a break.” But I think they’ll be massive. I thought they’d make the finals.’
We were concerned to hear that 4th Impact‘s Celina experienced a shocking collapse on The X Factor stage after the band was eliminated from the competition. However, the band has responded to the news, reassuring their fans that Celina is ‘ok now’.
Sinitta broke the worrying news on Twitter last night following the Sunday night show, explaining that Celina had collapsed and paramedics had come to her aid.
She also posted a video on Periscope captioned ‘Ambulance’ in which what appears to be a yellow ambulance can be seen in the background. People in the background can be heard asking ‘Is it one of the girls?’ as they watch the emergency services.
A witness also told The Sun that Celina was ‘out cold for about ten minutes,’ while judge and 4th Impact mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini told the publication of Celina’s condition: ‘She’s OK. She’s being taken care of backstage.’
The band later posted on their joint Twitter account, assuring concerned fans that Celina is feeling better.
Thousands of fans have already responded to the message, with many posted messages of reassurance to the band after their departure from the competition.
The Filipino girl group, made up of sisters Almira, Mylene, Irene and Celina, wowed from the outset when they first auditioned under the name ‘4th Power’. Changing their name to ‘4th Impact’ for copyright reasons when they reached the Judges’ houses, the group’s perfect harmonies have won them an international following on the show.
However, they were voted off after what Simon Cowell dubbed one of the ‘best sing-offs’ in the history of the show. After the judges’ vote went to deadlock, it was the public vote that confirmed the girls would be leaving.
After their previous success in the competition, we have every hope that this group will go far. Get better soon, Celina – we can’t wait to see you all sing together again!
