With just a week going to X-Factor Philippines live rounds, the top-rating Kapamilya reality show had one more elimination left to determine its Top 12 contestants.
The remaining 20 hopefuls were hied off to different locations for their one last chance at convincing the judges/mentors that they do have that X-factor.
Martin Nievera got to mentor the boys with Arnel Pineda where they had a bonding at Club Balai Isabel in Batangas. Charice, with the help of Cheesa Laureta mentored the girls which happened at the Bellevue Hotel in Manila. Pilita Corrales had the over 25’s and Rico J. Puno helped her chose the top 3 from the said category while Gary Valenciano mentored the groups with Jed Madela at the Tagaytay Highlands.
After the brutal elimination process, X-Factor Philippines reveals its Top 12:
Kedebon Colim, 18
Mark Mabasa, 26
Jerriane Mae Templo, 21
Daddy’s Home, 31-39
Early fan-favorites KZ Tandingan and boy group Takeoff advances while Christine Ledesma and Michael Pangilinan did not. Most perplexing is Kedebon Colim’s inclusion to the list despite doing a very poor cover of the hit Rocksteddy song, Superhero.
X-Factor Philippines live show starts next week.
