The Filipino group, who wowed the X Factor judges with their rendition of Bang Bang at auditions, will perform under a different name at boot camp.
After another group made a copyright claim over the band name, the four sisters will now be known as Fourth Impact.
A source told The Sun: “It came as a bit of a shock. The homework should have been done.”
Despite impressing the judges and audience, the band faced controversy before even making it to the second round.
The ITV show found itself at the centre of ‘fix’ claims after just one episode when it emerged that the Filipino group had a professional background.
A spokesperson said: “X Factor producers did not approach Fourth Power to audition - they flew to the UK to audition of their own accord and went through exactly the same audition process as other acts.
“Their interview in the programme clearly said that they had been performing together since 2001 and had competed in various places.”
