Following the blind auditions and battle rounds there’s now just the one performance between the acts and a spot in this year’s live final.

Three contestants in each team took to the stage for coaches Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs, Anne-Marie and who could each only pick one of their acts to take through to the next stage.

Acts which made it into the next round will now face the public vote to decide who wins a place in the live final.
