It was just few weeks ago when we cheered for our kababayan Ivy Grace Paredes for passing the auditions of The X-Factor UK.
After singing her heart out with Whitney Houston’s “All the Man that I Need” and getting the approval of four judges she was indeed a potential “favorite” (Read:Ivy Grace Paredes impress X Factor UK Judges).
However, just as when this singer from Malaybalay, Bukidnon is etching her way to stardom, an unexpected and sad circumstance came.
According to news reports, her journey with this popular show was cut short. Paredes will not be able to move on to the next rounds . She withdrew from the competition.
It was said that Pinay Contestant Ivy Grace Paredes had issues in getting a US Visa.
She needed one in order to travel to Los Angeles, where a part of the show will be filmed.
A newspaper in UK called The SUN reported that the visa application –“was rejected point blank over an issue in her past.”
The X- Factor UK management attempted to provide assistance but did not make it on time.
Ivy Grace Paredes was still able to perform at the shows Boot Camp . She performed “One Sweet DAY” with Mike Hough and Lascel Wood.
