Alisah Bonaobra surprised everyone with her performance during the X Factor UK 2017’s Viva Latino week.
She performed J.Lo’s “Let’s Get Loud” complete with a dance number.
The Filipino singer proved yet again that she has what it takes to win.
Alisah Bonaobra, who is known for singing high notes and ballads, surprised the judges and the audience with her performance.
After taking on a lot of ballads during the show, Alisah showed a different side of her as she performed Jennifer Lopez’ hit song, “Let’s Get Loud.” She did not only sing: She danced and kept the audience excited during her performance.
Before the end of her number, she received a standing ovation from judges Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne. Osbourne, who criticised Alisah for having a great but predictable performance cannot contain her happiness while watching the Filipino singer.
Judges Were Delighted
She received nothing but praises from the judges during the Viva Latino week.
Nichole Scherzinger said:
“Baby girl! I loved it you become this fierce beast wild animal when you get on that stage. You’re unleashed on that stage, you become the Latina Filipina Diva that you are, you make all Filipinas and Filipinos so proud. You shut it down tonight you’re a little fire cracker out there!”
According to Louis Walsh:
“Where did that come from? At the start of the whole series I thought you could just sing the big ballads and now you just turned into this little tiger tonight. With all the amazing energy, I loved the singing the dancing, I loved the whole staging by the creative team. It was fantastic!”
Simon Cowell thinks she put a unique twist to the song.
“You at some point Alisah are gonna have to put your own unique twist on a song otherwise it will be considered cabaret and that won’t get you to where you want to be.”
Even Sharon Osbourne was delighted.
“Alisah, you are more than just a ballad singer, much much more. You have so impressed me tonight, you’ve come out of your comfort zone and it was spectacular. Everybody loved it.”
Looks like Alisah Bonaobra is starting to be a great contender in the show.
