How do the Let It Shine live shows work?

In the live shows it'll be the viewers who have the power, voting for their favourite after the bands perform live. The two bands with the least votes will perform again before being disbanded.

The judges will then pick the best individual five boys to reform into a new group to go through to the next week, while the other five will be sent home. Gary Barlow will act as head judge in case of any ties over who to save.
