Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 10) — Filipina singer Alisah Bonaobra secured her slot in the final six of Sharon Osbourne's "X-Factor U.K." on Sunday (PHT) after belting out a rendition of "Bang Bang."


Bonaobra's version of Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and Jessie J's song even made one of the judges, Nicole Scherzinger, dance and sing along with the 22-year-old singer.

Bonaobra was initially eliminated after the individual performances, where she performed Celine Dion's "All by Myself."


However, the audience started chanting "Alisah," prompting Osbourne to ask for a sing-off between the Filipina singer and her two opponents Scarlett Lee and Rai-Elle Williams, who earlier earned their spots.

"I have to listen to the audience. No matter what, I have two chairs and three girls…You're all so talented, don't forget that," Osbourne said.

After the sing-off, Bonaobra took Scarlett's spot.

The "X Factor U.K." is now on its 14th season. Aside from Osbourne and Scherzinger, its judges include music producer Simon Cowell and entertainment manager Louis Walsh.

Bonaobra also finished as runner-up in reality franchise show, "The Voice of the Philippines," during its second season.
