i have lost count how many times i have watched this video, maybe more than a dozen times as of this writing and i feel i still can’ t get enough of it. this is one of the best reality singing contest TV show auditions i have seen.

what makes it even more special is that this is the audition of 4 pinays, mylene, aireen, elmira and celina, all sisters from the philippines who flew to London to join the X Factor UK auditions.

and boy, did these 4 pinays, have one hell of an audition!

the video shows the 4 judges of UK X Factor, Simon Cowell one of them together with the audience giving the 4 pinays, calling themselves the 4th Power, a huge standing ovation.

these were the comments of the judges:

  • “you took Wembley’s roof off”
  •  “you’re so demure, the music kicks in and you all turned into little bad girls and it blew my mind”
  • “you’re like monsters, minute monsters. the passion, the voices and the attitude”
  • “this is gonna blow up all over the world”
  • “in terms of first auditions, this is probably one of the best I have ever seen”
  • “you’re sick”
  • “your are bad ass”
  • “the biggest 4 yeses we have ever given”
  • “this audition just changed your life”

there is an amusing bit in the interview in the end. Simon Cowell asked the girls why they chose to audition in the X Factor UK. one of the girls answered “to see you” (referring to Simon). Simon asked asked aside from him what other reasons do they have, the same girl answered “to see Queen Elizabeth”.

yes, i hope they win the X Factor UK and as part of their prize they get to meet the Queen.
