JBK and Lemonade had a sing off for the final seat in the Groups’ Six Chair Challenge tonight.

And it was JBK who were sent home after the super tough performance.

Joshua (24), Bryan (28) and Kim (24) from the Philippines make up JBK who originally won a seat at judges’ houses after singing Boyz II Men’s I’ll Make Love To You.

But in the Groups category, there was some fierce competition.

We also met girl group Lemonade – Shania (20), Saffron (19), twins Yemi and Chilee (17) and Mya from London – who were only together for three weeks at their original audition.

“Not getting a chair is not an option for us,” they said tonight. “We have not worked this hard to go home.”

They performed Beyonce’s I Was Here for the judges to also get a seat.

But when Groups’ mentor Simon Cowell wanted to make space of his new girl group, one of JBK or Lemonade had to go.

Requesting a sing off, Simon Cowell invited the two groups to perform a new song.

JBK chose All 4 One’s I Can Love You Like That while Lemonade performed Shanice’s Keep Your Inner Child Alive.

Louis Walsh backed the boys but it was mentor of the category Simon who had all the panel.

“I’m sorry to put you both through this,” he said, “The group I’m going to take through to the judges’ homes are Lemonade.”

Lemonade join Jack and Joel, The Price Brothers, Rak-Su, The Cutkelvins and the New Girl Band at judges’ houses.

The Six Chair Challenge then continues on Sunday night at 7PM.
