The judges went to a deadlock after the 2-2 votes.

"For me there is a future for Lauren," Rita Ora said.

"I have a lot of love and respect for everyone on the stage. Lauren that was fantastic but my heart and my soul is with my girls [4th Impact]," said Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

"Sorry, I'm going to send home 4th Impact," Nick Grimshaw said.

Simon Cowell had the final say, "I think I'm going to send Lauren home."

However, the public votes booted out 4th Impact on the competition as they received the fewest public votes. They are the ninth act to leave the show.

Celina dramatically collapsed on stage after the live results which caused panic to the viewers. Cheryl screamed for production to help and two producers raced on stage to carry a stricken Celina backstage.

Some time later, the band confirmed that Celina was OK.

On Saturday, netizens tagged Simon Cowell for his alleged 'racist' comments to the Pinay group after he referered two members as 'A' and 'B.' (Read: Netizens react on Simon Cowell's alleged 'racist' comments on 4th Impact.)
