X Factor UK 2015 Battle for Top 4: Is Simon Cowell racist towards Pinoy group 4th Impact?

X Factor UK 2015 has only 5 remaining finalists and one of them will be eliminated during the results show tomorrow as the Top 4 semi-finalists are revealed.

Voting has already ended at 12 midnight in the UK and I do hope that the Pinoy group 4th Impact, who was never in the Bottom 2 the past eliminations, will still survive all the way to the finals.

During the Live Performance Show Saturday night, 4th Impact performed The Jackson 5's "I'll Be There" and Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" to much positive praises. They somehow got the sympathy of many UK viewers when judge mentor Simon Cowell called two of the group's members as simply A and B instead of their names, thus creating
racism controversy

Cowell, who no longer has a finalist remaining under his Adults team, was actually praising 4th Impact's performance of I'll Be There' but was kinda rude when instead of calling them with their beautiful names, he just refered to them as A and B.

Perhaps he's having difficulty differentiating the four girls, but as someone who's also part of the show, he must be familiar with them and avoid labeling them with letters or anything that might sound offensive to other races.

Moving on. Best of luck to the 5 finalists tomorrow (4th Impact, Louisa Johnson, Che Chesterman, Lauren Murray, Reggie N Bollie) and hope 4th Impact makes it to the Top 4 and eventually become X Factor UK 2015 grand winner. I think their toughest competitor is Louisa Johnson. - Mykiru.ph
