Ivy Grace Paredes may have left The X Factor UK but the Filipina singer definitely made her mark on the show.

The Pinay singer received a standing ovation after her powerful performance of "I Have Nothing" by Whitney Houston during the six-chair challenge.

X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger told Ivy Grace: "I know why you left the Philippines because your voice is way too big for the Philippines alone, it's meant for the entire world to hear."

Simon Cowell pointed out: "Is it the most original thing we've ever heard? No. Is it exciting? Yes. Should you be in a chair, yes."

The 33-year-old singer was expected to move on to the next round but she was unable to secure an American visa. As a result, she could not travel to the Los Angeles residence of mentor Sharon Osbourne for the Judges' House round.

Rapper Honey G replaced Ivy Grace in the Overs category of The X Factor UK.

She has been working in Dubai for the past seven years.

According to the British publication The Sun, Ivy Grace will return to Dubai next month to perform in a show at Club Asia in Wafi Mall.
