The episode began with Dermot talking to the judges about the previous night and who they had left. He also apologized for Louis dropping the F bomb on last night’s show.
In the recap, Louis mentioned that Simon was on his feet for Brendan and that would mean a lot to Brendan (after all the negative comments Simon gave Brendan). They recapped the previous nights acts and comments.
They announced the bottom contestant. All Louis’ boys were safe for the moment. Bella had the least amount of votes and was out.
Tom Walker performed. Voting closed. Cheryl performed. Dermot asked who she wanted to win and she said Dalton.
They announced the next bottom two. All Louis’ boys were safe. Dalton was first to be announced safe.
Brendan was also safe. He dropped to his knees in shock.
Anthony was also announced safe. He did a flip on stage before jumping into Louis’ arms.
Shan and Acacia and Aaliyah were the bottom two and had to do a sing off. Shan went first. After the performances, the judges voted. Louis voted for Acacia and Aaliyah to go home. Simon voted for them as well. Nile voted for Shan to go home and Ayda couldn’t decide so she voted for Shan, bringing it to deadlock. Shan got the least amount of votes and was out to everyone’s surprise.
Next week is the semi-finals. It also appears that the Finale will be two nights long as Little Mix and The Spice Girls have been announced to be performing on December 2.
