Filipino boyband JBK are feeling the nerves ahead of X Factor’s Six Chair Challenge.

Joshua Bulot, Bryan del Rosario and Kim Lawrenz Ordonio make up the trio, who performed Sam Smith’s Lay Me Down at their original audition.

Louis Walsh told the boys: “I love your dedication, flying from the Philippines, it was good.”

Nicole Scherzinger added: “You are making all the Filipinos proud right now.”

Now the boys are ready to compete for a place at judges’ houses, hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Filipino contestant Alisah Bonaobra who made the cut on Sunday in the Girls category.

In tonight’ show, they sing Boyz II Men – I’ll Make Love To You.

Ahead of the performance, the group told “Honestly, we are very nervous. 6CC is the hardest part of the competition. Anything can happen. It’s our turn to fight for our spot with fellow ‘group competitors.’

” We are also feeling the pressure after we saw what happened to Alisah during her 6-chair challenge last Sunday. Fellow Filipinos are also expecting us to make it like Alisah Bonaobra.”

It’ll be down to Groups’ mentor Simon Cowell to decide which of the remaining acts in the competition get one of six places at judges’ houses in his category.

JBK said: “Having Simon as the Group Mentor this season is a dream come true. We were really hoping that he handles the group category and we were surprised that it happened.

“During the judges reveal, we were able to hug him tightly because of excitement. Though Simon is very hard to please, we hope that he’ll appreciate our talent.”

The X Factor 2017 continues this Saturday at 8:15PM and Sunday night at 7PM on ITV.
