Reid eliminated Phillip Lomax from the Boys.
Meanwhile, Pinay singer Ellona Santiago is still in the game after Paula send through her group InTENsity. Ellona rocked the house and paved the way for the group’s success as their lead female vocalist for the night. Simon even gave props to her and said “you in the red jacket have got an amazing voice.” Paula then quipped “the girl in the red is Ellona” followed by a round of applause from her groupmates and the live show audience.
