MANILA, Philippines - Filipina teenager Marlisa Punzalan has made it through to the Top 6 of X Factor Australia.

Keating showered praise on Punzalan for her performance.
"What a moment -- 14-year-old Marlisa standing there and she was incredible. I'm so proud of you. That performance was electric," he said.
Earlier on Tuesday, Punzalan thanked her fans on Facebook
"Today, whatever the outcome I just want to let you all know how happy I am with the enormous support coming not only from Australia but in all parts of the word. I am extremely thankful to all of you for believing in me from the day of my audition and now. I am still here living my dream because of all of you! Thank you and let's hope and pray together that people will continue to vote to keep me safe from elimination," she said.
