On this episode, Louis Tomlinson continued the Six Chair Challenge with his Boys category and Robbie Williams picked his Groups. Louis tweeted, “Watching live tonight!”
Louis started the episode with all his chairs full and Brendan had the golden buzzer safe seat, going straight through to the Judge’s House. Corey lost his seat to make room for Brendan.
Up first was Thomas Pound, 20 year old cleaner from Bridgend. Thomas sang The Greatest Showman – This is Me as Lady Freida Wilde. Louis asked why Thomas deserved a seat and he responded, “Be who you are, be different and stand out.” Thomas started with a cloak covering his outfit, which he removed to reveal his suit. He eventually snatched his own wig.
Louis easily gave Thomas a seat, kicking Ollie from his seat.
J-Sol, a 25 year old singer from London sang James Brown – I Feel Good. Louis said, “You had us in tears on your first audition.” J-Sol showed off his his happier side and Louis looked pained as he realized he’d have to kick someone else out of their chair. Louis remarked, “This shows how much potential you have as an artist.” Louis turned to the audience for advice on who should go. Nathan lost his seat. Louis tweeted, “Losing Nathan was difficult I liked him! Cool sound”.

Dalton Andre Harris, a 24 year old singer from Jamaica, sang Prince’s Purple Rain. Louis commented how hard it must be to go last and to go “smash it”. Louis put his head in his hands again as Dalton did smash it, which meant more tough choices for Louis.
Louis said, “Based on that unbelievable vocal, of course you’ve got a chair.” Louis tweeted, “Dalton can do craaaazy shit with his voice!!!”
He initially kicked Thomas out of his seat. Thomas said he was not leaving without a seat. Louis asked for a sing off between J-Sol and Thomas.
J-Sol started it off and killed it. Thomas sang Simply The Best in a fierce performance that showed how badly he wanted a seat, doing a split that split his pants! Louis said what Thomas did was undeniable and that J-Sol’s performance had touched him from the beginning. Louis didn’t want to lose anyone else. Both Thomas and J-Sol get a seat. Tommy lost his seat.
Louis’ final Boys were J-Sol, Anthony Russell, Armstrong Martins, Dalton Harris,
Thomas Pound, and Brendan Murray.
Next up was Robbie’s Groups. LMA Choir sang Change is Gonna Come.
The Squirrels were 33 and 49 year old drag queens from Norwich singing Tina Turner – River Deep Mountain High. Simon didn’t like them, but they got a seat.
ATTY sang Blinded by Your Grace by Stormzy. Simon didn’t like them either, but Robbie said, “I’m good." and they got a seat.
Tre Amici sang Il Divo’s Senza Catene. Louis said, “Across the board vocally it’s undeniable. I think you deserve a chair.”
Harry & Danny sang Slow Hands. They got a chair but he said they pick bad songs.
Lost Tiger sang Jet’s Are You Gonna Be My Girl. The twins got a seat.
Sweet Sense were 15 – 18 year old students who were put together as a girl group during auditions and they sang Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk. They got a seat, but someone had to leave. The Squirrels were out.
The Hewitts sang Michael Buble’s Feeling Good. They got a chair so Harry & Danny were out. Louis said, “It’s the right decision.”
A STAR, made up of Aaliyah Robinson and Acacia K, were 14 and 15 years old and had been made into a duo at auditions. They sang Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It. Robbie stopped them because he said that song was an 8 but he thought they had a 10 in them so they sang Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj’s Bang Bang. Louis said, “I see so much potential in you two.” After a chat with the moms, Robbie had the moms press the Golden Buzzer giving them a sure seat. Tre Amici was out.
Misunderstood sang an original that had the audience going wild. They got a seat but The Hewitts had to go.
VIBE 5 sang Justin Timberlake’s Can’t Stop The Feeling. They were a boyband that was put together during auditions. Louis said, “C’mon, lads.” Louis said, “Lads, this is a difficult. I did feel a sprinkle of magic there” but that they’d have to wait and see. They got a seat despite Robbie calling them a mess and saying he’s taking a gamble. Lost Tiger lost their seat.
Panda & Burgandy who were rejected by Ayda last week as soloists in the Overs category sang Tina Turner’s Proud Mary. They had people on their feet. Louis said, “I enjoyed that.” Ayda even said if Robbie didn’t give them a chair Ayda would take them back, but Robbie gave them a seat. ATTY lost their seat.
Tommorow the Judge’s House begin. They showed some preview clips and Nile Rodgers and Liam Payne do appear to have been Louis’ guest judges!
Louis tweeted, “Can’t wait for you to see my judges houses. Really proud of everyone for their performances!”
