Filipino contestant Ivy Grace Paredes was forced to quit the X Factor UK competition after getting denied of US visa.
According to reports, Ivy Grace Paredes is now out of the competition after she was refused a visa she needed to travel to Los Angeles to film that part of the show.
She was denied due to “an issue with her past,” which has not been disclosed.
“She was point blank refused the visa. X Factor tried their best to help, but ran out of time,” a rep from the show said.
“There was an issue with her application being approved. That meant she was not granted a visa in time and sadly had to withdraw from the competition,” rep added.
During the auditions, Ivy Grace Paredes leaves the judges in awe after belting a powerful cover of “All The Man I Need” by Whitney Houston.
