‘X Factor’ comeback queen’s journey continues

Last Sunday, Alisah Bonaobra’s chances of joining The X Factor UK live shows were unclear. But today, the 22-year-old is officially “in it to win it” after surviving the nerve-wracking week 1 of the official start of the competition.

Alisah won UK’s heart and made it back to the live shows in top-rating talent reality show. Viewers were asked to vote for an eliminated act from the Judges’ House round whom they want to come back and compete in the live shows.

On last Sunday’s episode that aired on RTL-CBS, it was a battle between the Boys and the Girls categories with the theme “Express Yourself.” The X Factor UK hopefuls performed a song of their choice related to the theme.

While introducing her wildcard winner, Sharon Osbourne was very thankful to the public for bringing Alisah back.

Alisah performed “This is My Now” by Jordin Sparks, which impressed the judges and the audience that’s why after her performance, the judges were on their feet and had nothing but compliments for her.

“That song is absolutely perfect for you because this is your now and you deserve to be back on the show. You always should have been on the show,” said Louis Walsh. “It’s almost like a winner’s song. You got great soul and I love the way you fight back,” he added.

Nicole Scherzinger agreed with Louis and referred to Alisah as her little Disney warrior princess. “You just hiya-d and karate chopped all through that song. I look at you and I’m like that’s my little ninja Filipina sister up there. You were meant to be up there.”

“Everybody says in this contest that they really want this, and they really need to be here. I know your story. I know what you’ve gone through. And you know what? With a voice like yours, you’re gonna be here ‘til the end,” said judge and mentor Sharon Osbourne.

On the taped interview, Alisah called herself the “comeback queen.” She looked back at her journey where she was let go but asked to come back and fight for her spot at the Six Chair Challenge. Now she is back again as the wildcard winner.
