Stephanee performed on Team Anne-Marie against Leona Jørgensen and Sweeney.
Anne-Marie ultimately chose Leona for the next round, saying: “It’s difficult when you want them all to succeed – I’m struggling a little bit.
“I think you’re all ready to make your own music but the person that makes me go ‘Oh my gosh!’ is Leona.”
Fans were quick to praise Stephanie following the decision.
One wrote on Twitter: “She should have gone through fantastic voice and so genuine as a person.”
Another added: “She was my favourite performance tonight. Such a pity she is not going to be in the final.”
