4th Impact, earlier known as 4th Power, had been eliminated from the “X Factor UK,” but it seems like it was Rita Ora who stole the viewers and fans attention. Read On!
Rita Ora was branded as racist by the “X Factor UK” viewers as she let out her thoughts while choosing between Lauren Murray and 4th Impact who she thinks need to go home in the show’s Week 5 Elimination.
I can somehow accept the fact that 4th Impact was out but I can never accept how Rita Ora degraded them, she's mean, rude, racist, arrogant

According to International Business Times, the recent sing-off of the long-time running singing competition was the toughest episode of the season as two of the strongest singers in the show fought for their place in the series.
The site reported that the result was controversial, with both contestants’ incredible performances compared to other acts—Che Chesterman obviously did his best for his rendition of Adele’s “Hello,” however, he didn’t impress the judges and the public, even him…he knew to himself that he’s in the badshot as he shakes his head after his performance; Reggie N Bollie, “clearly not the strongest singers”—so, how did it happen?
It was totally unexpected for the viewers when Murray and the four-member group’s name were called for the sing-off as they are always noted to be consistently showing outstanding performances in the show. There were speculations that they chose the wrong acts to be in the sing-off!
Yet, it doesn’t seem to be the fans concerned anymore as they focused their attention to Ora’s allegedly discriminating comment towards the four Filipina sisters.
“For me, I’m going for the person who’s an artist, who can sell records—who’s been proved selling records already on iTunes, who for me I can envision with an album, I knew has an incredible voice and I think standing on your own is way more powerful… I think there’s a future for Lauren.” –Rita Ora
Twitterverse went frenzy when the viewers started to backlash the 25-year-old singer’s opinion.

On the other hand, Unreality TV reported that after the results night, Ora was full of praise for Murray and insisted that they did the right decision for choosing her over the four Filipina sisters. She added that they had no idea who would be in the bottom list but still thinks that her girl did her best.
Meanwhile, the site also reported that after all what happened, Ora reaches out to the eliminated group to show her support and wishes them luck to their journey in the music industry.
