MANILA, Philippines - The winner of "The X Factor Philippines" may have the chance to meet the UK talent show's producer Simon Cowell, according to KC Concepcion.

In her guesting on "KrisTV" on Wednesday, Concepcion, who's now busy promoting the finale of "The X Factor" this weekend, said that aside from the P4 million worth of prizes, the grand winner could also meet Cowell.

"At makikilala 'yan ni Simon Cowell. In-approve niya ang lahat ng ginagawa natin dito. Kaya kailangan 'yung grand winner ay makahilera siya sa Leona Lewis at One Direction na kapag sinabak mo sa mga ganoong performers ay talagang ikaka-proud nating mga Pinoy," Concepcion said.

The three grand finalists -- Daddy's Home, KZ Tandingan and Gabriel Maturan -- all performed on "KrisTV" on Wednesday and were asked why they deserve to win.

"I think we'd been in the business sobrang tagal na, underground nga lang. Mayroon kaming professions na iba pero 'yung heart namin sa music talaga and we were struggling for a long time," a member of Daddy's Home said.

"Ginagawa ko po ang best ko at pinaghihirapan namin dito lahat sa 'X Factor.' Lahat kami deserving na manalo," Maturan said.

"I'd been dreaming na marating ito and I almost lost hope na hindi ako mabigyan ng chance pero sabi nga po kapag diyan ka talaga ilalagay ni Lord kahit sino pa ang pumigil sa iyo at sumira ng pangalan mo basta diyan ka talaga. I think nandito na ako eh tuloy tuloy na ito. Sana ibigay na talaga," says Tandingan who admitted that she also has her share of online bashers.

"The X Factor Philippines" finale will be held at Pagcor Theater with the final performance night on Saturday, while the winner will be announced on Sunday.
