Filipina singer Ivy Grace Paredes performed another astounding performance during the six chair challenge of the “X Factor UK” aired Sunday night, September 25, 2016.
The 33-year-old received a standing ovation after performing her own rendition of Whitney Houston’s classic “I Have Nothing.”
Before her performance, she admitted: “I am nervous but excited. I am going to sing I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston.”
Nicole Scherzinger said: “Ivy Grace I know why you left the Philippines, because your voice is just too big for the Philippines alone. It is meant for the whole world to hear.”
Simon Cowell added: “Is that the most original thing we have ever heard? No. Is it exciting? Yes. Should you get a chair? Yes!”
Ivy made it though to the next round of the competition, but she was forced to leave the show after US authorities rejected her visa to film at Sharon’s LA home for judges houses “over an issue in her past” which has not been revealed.
