Tension filled Sunday night’s stage as The X Factor UK’s six chair challenge kicked off, determining the final six girls under judge Sharon Osbourne’s team.

Bonaobra, 22, wowed Osbourne with her powerful rendition of Celine Dion’s “All By Myself”, earning her initially a spot in the top six.

However, her hold on the chair didn’t last long as another crowd favorite, Grace Davies, delivered a mind-blowing performance.

Much to the surprise of the audience, Osbourne swapped Davies with Bonaobra, ending the Filipina’s journey in the competition, or so they thought.

After the crowd started chanting “Bring her back”, the teary-eyed singer was brought back on stage and asked to do a sing-off with two other hopefuls, Scarlett Lee and Rai-Elle, to secure a place in the competition.

I am so sorry to make you do this. But what do I do when there’s so much talent here and the audience, I have to listen to the audience. No matter what, I have two chairs and three girls. I want you to do a sing off for me. You are all talented. Don’t forget that,” Osbourne said.

The three singers took the stage one by one with Bonaobra performing last, belting out Jessie J’s “Bang Bang” that further showed her rapping skills and singing prowess.

After the sing-off, Osbourne decided to let Lee go, making Rai-Elle and Bonaobra continue their journey.

 

They join fellow contestants Deanna Mussington, Holly Tandy, Grace Davies, and Georgina Panton.
