The Top 9 contestants kicked off the show by performing with the first "Star Power" grand champion Angeline Quinto. After the commercial break, the finalists were back on stage with their mentors as host KC Concepcion told them whether they're safe or not.
KC then announced the following as safe: Allen Jane Sta. Maria, Daddy's Home, Gabriel Maturan, Joan Da, Jeric Medina, KZ Tandingan, and Kedebon Colim. That means Takeoff landed in the Bottom 2 again, together with the oldest contender Modesto Taran.
For their survival performances, Mang Modesto sang another classic from Lou Rawls, "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine," while Takeoff did their version of Westlife's "Flying Without Wings."
Who did the judges eliminate? Three of them, including his mentor Pilita Corales, said it was time for Mang Modesto to go home. Martin Nievera did not anymore cast his vote as Mang Modesto already received enough votes to be sent home.
"X Factor Philippines" airs another performance and elimination episodes on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
