In the current season of “X Factor” UK, all-Filipino girl group 4th Impact continues to shine in the international spotlight for their mind-blowing performances. But for some viewers, they believe that fellow “X Factor” contestant Lauren Murray wasn’t pleased with the girls being included in the Top 5.
According to GMA News Online, a 4th Impact member tried to hug Lauren upon learning that they were safe from being eliminated on the show. Lauren was seen to “brush off” the hand of the 4th Impact member and fans were definitely not happy about it.

The Week 4 of Live Shows was indeed full of controversies. Aside from the issue involving 4th Impact and Lauren Murray, some viewers called the show “a fix.” Some claimed that Cowell was heard whispering “Che Che” to fellow judges before the final voting which meant to send away his own singer, Anton Stephans.
4th Impact, Lauren Murray, Reggie N’ Bollie, Louisa Johnson, and Che Chesterman will now battle for the Top 4 spots as they perform to “”Jukebox” songs next week, GMA News Online wrote.
