X Factor Philippines Top 4 Performance Night Recap and Power Rankings!


It’s music heroes this week for the remaining Top 4 finalist in X Factor Philippines. Gabriel, KZ, Allen and Daddy’s Home sing their choice song from the artist who influences their music.

Host KC Concepcion with her simple yet elegant blue gown introduces Ultimate Multi-Media star Toni Gonzaga on X Factor stage performing “Lady Marmalade” with her awesome growl and her sexy legs. (Mama Pinty . . .) Gonzaga promotes her upcoming movie “This Guy’s in Love With You Mare”.

Charice’s girl Allen Sta. Maria first takes the center stage as Khalil Ramos and John Prats cheering for her. She performs a Willow Smith song “Whip My Hair” with her hair whipping back and forth. She got the swag, the voice and the dance moves good enough to claim the next pop star. I just don’t like her outfit tonight, it was flat, plain simple and boring.

Judges’ Comments:

Martin: You’v’ grown up 10 feet taller. The next pop star is you.
Charice: If you will replace in the future, it doesn’t matter for me because you deserve it.
Pilita: You will be the one who will take place Charice.
Gary: What a way to open the Top 4 battle.

Gary Valenciano‘s sole hope Daddy’s Home follows with appreciations from Jed Madela and Robi Domingo. They sang their hearts out with a Journey classic song “Open Arms” which gives me thrill with their dynamic and powerful voices. A sure vocal powers that is memorable.

Judges Comments:

Martin: Wow! I can’t wait for you guys to record an album.
Charice: Really deserving yong spot ninyo dito.
Pilita: Such a beautiful arrangement. They fit very well with those outfit.
Gary: With your performance tonight, I can’t control my emotions.

For the tourism campaign of the slogan “It’s more fun in the Philippines“, El Gamma Penumbra executed a world-class performance with their shadow play showcasing our very own hot spots and culture .

Marcelito Pomoy, Bugoy Carino and Markki Stroem‘s shows supports for Charice‘s 2nd mentee KZ Tandingan who changes beat with Chris Brown chart topping song “Forever”. It was different from her soulful rendition, definitely emphasizing to go out from her comfort zone. Her performance with this one is one of the coolest performance throughout the season.

Judges’ Comments:

Martin: Simply crazy (KZ). I am blessed to be in front of of you.
Charice: Sabi ko nga ba mas better if actual na, I’m glad you did it so great.
Pilita: You are it! and that’s it!
Gary: Wala talaga akong makitang mali.

and finally, Martin Nievera‘s only son in the competition Gabriel Maturan with Gerald Anderson giving credits for him, makes her best act in the evening with a Justin Bieber recent hit Boyfriend. He sure belongs to Believers! It was fun, relaxing, entertaining and cool performance. He do have some flat in the middle part (high notes) of the song but he pulled it through as it progresses.

Judges Comments:

Martin: This was your best performance  and most relaxed.
Charice: First time  na gumalaw ka na bigay na bigay.
Pilita: You have a big chance to make it.
Gary: Vocally, ang daming kulot pero natamaan lahat naturally.
