In the Groups category, duo Acacia & Aaliyah performed a mash up of Blinded By Your Grace and I Win while representing the Overs, Danny Tetley sang This is My Life by Shirley Bassey.

As always, judges Simon Cowell, Adya Williams, Louis Tomlinson and Robbie Williams gave their opinions before lines opened for viewers to vote.

The six semi-finalists then returned to the stage for an ABBA showcase.

Scarlett performed Winner Takes It All, Anthony sang Name Of The Game, Brendan chose to sing I Have A Dream, Dalton went with S.O.S., Acacia and Aaliyah put a twist on Money, Money, Money and Danny Tetley belted out Thank You For The Music.

Lines then froze before host Dermot O’Leary returned to reveal the results.

The lines then reopened for viewers to continue voting for the remaining four acts ahead of Sunday’s results show, where another act to be sent home leaving three for next weekend’s final.
