    The problem is Filipinos sing the same. Its always like 'Kundiman'. Always ballad. You need to compete and go differently like others did. You see how others change how they sing the songs. Plus factor, they make their own music. We have supported you and we are happy that you reach that level. I wish the next Filipino who will fight on this kind of contest should be different.

    Alisah has a beautiful talent she capture you in her voice. I can't help think there's racism involved …

    Well, that's X-FACTOR UK. What to expect? It's their lost, not alisah. They just let an amazing singer go away. Alisah is Filipino, not British.

    simon is good at criticizing, but calling Alisah old fashion doesnt made sense.. u guys choose an old song.. she was able to give justice to the song and u tell her shes not making her own twist of the song ..guess what Grace made a total twist by singing her own song.. if you'r looking for an artist writing their own song.. then whats the point of choosing a particular artist's songs…

    Alisahs voice is very generic here in the Philippines thats the reason why she cant make it here! Maybe in UK its seldom that you have ballad singers…thats shes abit appealing to you guys…

    George Micheal is also well known in the Philippines before her time. People use to sing his songs at his time of his popularity in the Philippines.
    I like Alisah, not because she is Filipino, but I thnink she pick up the wrong song that night.

    She calmly answered even when they tried to fill hatred in her mouth, she realizes she was welcomed, loved and supported by folks to be able to come back everytime. Good girl, best wishes!

    She has a good voice but it's so 70s and 80s.people like her in the Philippines but she doesn't have a global appeal. Anyway the show is x factor UK, I would vote for my own if I was a brit. She should stop complaining and move on .

    If people love her so much why are they spelling her name wrong lol ALISAH not ALISHA

    I’m a grammar freak

    I love Alisah, but come on now. stop the race-baiting. I don't think racism played a role at all. I think it was a poor decision to boot her off the show, but I highly doubt it was because she is Phillipino

    Alisah did her best in singing that George Michael song. And it was a great performance. This girl definitely has THE X Factor among the contestants she was up against. Not only does she have the Vocal Prowess, but her humble character makes her shine even more. Definitely, an International Record Company should not waste an opportunity in not taking Alisah in as a prospect for an artist. She is just TOO talented to miss out on. Alisah Bonaobrah deserves a debut recording album ….. NOW. God bless you, Alisah. 🙂

    She got Eliminated because Sharon had put her out and was forced to put Alisah back in because of the crowd booing Sharon. At the Judge's house, Sharon commented on Singing Disney, Theatrical, Celine Dion etc… It's Sharon's personal choice as judge whoever she wants to put through. But… if it was a Different judge, I put my money that she will get through to the next round. (I didn't say she will win the finals). She would've had a chance then. But she is in the hands of Sharon what can you do???

    hi Talent Recap please tell Raksu that they dont deserve the win because they can't sing. Watch all their performances and you will see they are just using back tracks and obviously lip syncing or have their mic in low volume. The backtrack is much louder than their voices. They can't sing. They can rap but even that it didnt impress me at all.
