Filipino boy band JBK audition for The X Factor 2017 tonight.
But can they replicate the success of 2015 ladies 4th Impact, who made it all the way to the quarter finals?
Like 4th Impact (originally 4th) power, JBK have flown to the UK especially to audition for The X Factor.
“We flew all the way from the Philippines. We arrived yesterday after a 24 hour flight,” they tell the judges.
Joshua Bulot, Bryan del Rosario and Kim Lawrenz Ordonio make up the trio, who sing Sam Smith’s Lay Me Down.
Louis Walsh tells the boys: “I love your dedication, flying from the Philippines, it was good.”
Nicole Scherzinger adds: “You are making all the Filipinos proud right now.”
Will JBK make the next round?
Tune in to The X Factor tonight to find out and watch their audition.
More contestants on this evening’s episode have also flown in from afar to sing for the judges.
We meet Elysa who has travelled all the way from Sydney, Australia with her mum to perform for the judges. The Aussie sings Fleur East’s Sax but will it have been worth the trip?
Also taking a long haul flight to perform is 22-year-old musician Deanna from Anguilla, a British colony in the Caribbean. She performs Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing in her bid to get four yeses from the judges.
Meanwhile, other acts on tonight’s show include Bukky Shitu who gets flirty with Simon and Harrison Styles whose name requires a double take.
Plus there’s The Cutkelvins, made up of Jay (24), Shereen (20) and Kay (23) Cutkelvin who are brothers and sister from Lanark, Scotland.
The X Factor 2017 airs tonight at 8PM on ITV.
