Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the spectacle that is the GRAND FINAL of the third series of The Mix Factor!

This is it everyone, eleven live shows worth of song choices and unfortunate eliminations have led us to this point. We started out with a total of 20 contestants, and now there are only three left. Before we get to today's schedule, let's recap the eliminations that took place over the course of this series:
Spoiler

Now, there are only three contestants still in the race for the crown. Let's take a look at this show's schedule for a bit, shall we? The top three have prepared four songs each: a Celebrity Duet, their Public's and Mentor's Favorite and their Winner's Single. However, only two of the will sing all four as there will be an opportunity to vote after each act has performed twice. Then, I will announce the act that finished in 3rd place and we'll move on. After the top 2 have sung their final songs, the lines will open again and the public will be able to vote once more to make sure their favorite will win tonight. After the winner has been announced, I will reveal the voting statistics of the entire series, plus a few extras! Anyway, let's welcome tonight's cast to the stage. I do have a surprise for you though: the judges will be joined by a very special guest judge tonight!

Speaking of judges, please welcome the four regular judges of The Mix Factor, their acts and our special guest judge!

Unfortunately, Kev won't be here tonight. However, I do have his comments and votes, so he'll be with us tonight in that sense.

For the second surprise, how does a group performance sound? They're kicking off the Grand Final of The Mix Factor, please welcome the The Mix Factor Top 20 singing 'Higher' by The Saturdays

One of my favourite songs ever! Unfortunately this group performance doesn't have a patch on the original!

All right, that performance sure got the audience pumped!

Now, let's head over to Jack's category for the first Celebrity Duet of the night. Singing 'Who We Are Tonight' with the amazing Radio INK, it's the equally amazing Samantha Jade!

Samantha Jade

*standing ovation*

This was the perfect song choice for you to sing Samantha, it suits your quirky blues-pop voice brilliantly and I have to say that I was rather impressed by how well you two gelled in the duet, it was the ultimate collaboration, two amazing vocalists sharing a stage, I have to say, this was so much better than I was expecting it to be, it was a real triumph for your mentor, what a start to the final!

Samantha

*Standing Ovation*

Samantha as this competition has progressed I can certainly admit that I have slowly became fan and could see why everyone seems to love you. Your vocals are quite unique and up to this point in the competition you havenít given anything but a great performance. I think your mentor has done a great job with you and this was a good duet. I honestly wish you all the best for the final and at this moment I would say you are probably the frontrunner.

*standing ovation*

Well done on getting to the final! I have to say, as a viewer, I always thought you were one of the most interesting contestants and, as a guest judge, I feel you are one of the most consistent too. Week after week you've come back and pretty much smashed the competition. I have one slight negative (if it even is) and that is that perhaps that was very risky for the final, but then how can you win without risks? It's all or nothing and you certainly delivered ALL!

Samantha, WOW! What a way to start the Final. Congratulations for making the Final, because you deserve to be here! This was an amazing duet and this is what you do best, no doubt about it. It was alive, energetic and full of enjoyment which is how consistent you have been throughout the Series. A brilliant start to the show, well done girl, roll on your next performance.

Samantha Jade

*standing ovation*

Samantha, this is how we start off a Grand Final, alive and kicking! Sammi you and Radio INK are amazing together and both have amazing performing skills and voices that are just incredible. What makes this even better for me is the fact that I have been waiting to give you this song for ages and I am so happy that I can use it right now in the Grand Final and show everybody right now why youíre here and how you can handle yourself even when youíre up there with a star such as the band Radio INK! You started out as my wildcard act and I am so glad you were given to me because I have loved finding songs for you and working with you as a whole my girl! I hope you make it to the final two my girl! Bravo Miss Samantha Jade!

FIVE standing ovations for Samantha Jade, what a way to kick off the first round of performances!

Up next, it's Stephen's final girl. She's defied the odds by making it this far despite the mediocre comments she received every week. Could she win this?

Either way, she'll have had the opportunity to sing 'Trust And Believe' with Keyshia Cole no matter what happens. Give it up for Danielle Penning!

Danielle Penning

This was a good performance Danielle! I like Keyshia and it was nice to see the two of you sharing a stage, I really liked the performance, the song was a good pick. However, I would have preferred to have seen something slightly more bluesy, this was more R & B than blues/jazz and I wasn't 100% convinced by you singing it Danielle, it felt like you were trying to hold up against Keyshia and not quite managing to do so, sorry Danielle, not amazing!

Danielle

*Standing Ovation*

Danielle can I be the first to say that I am surprised that we are still standing. You were my wildcard choice at the beginning of the competition and I can honestly admit the first few shows I struggled with you, but I felt that when we connected we finally got some great performance. Looking back at the comments from the other judges it is a surprise to see you here. But Danielle I thought that duet with Keyshia was special, and I honestly hope that the public continue to support you. Team Danielle all the way to the end.

Danielle, I'm so, so happy that you've made the Final because and I may be in the minority but you deserve it. Now this was a stunning duet right there. Your voice always enchants me when you sing but when Keyshia came on stage, I was taken away to another place. This was simply stunning and one of your all time best, amazing job, Danielle.

Danielle Penning

*standing ovation*

Aw, Danielle. You are one of the most sweetest people to ever grace this stage in the three series! You really brought some fight with you tonight, Keyshia really helped you to bring out your inner diva and I have to say, that was an fantastic performance. You deserve to be here in the final, personally I've always liked you and I've been a little surprised at some of the criticism you've received. I think you should keep doing what your doing because you've obviously got a fanbase who love you and that's what matters!

Danielle Penning

Hmm Danielle I am going to be honest and say that I believe that in this song Keyshia outshone you. I mean this felt too soulful for you and you didnít really have that edge you have in your voice again or that bluesyness you have it was just too soulful for you overall and to me didnít feel like a song we would expect to see in a final from you. Not amazing but decent.

Ovarall, pretty good comments for Danielle! Finally, after so many weeks of criticism she gets some standing ovations and amazing comments from a few judges!

There's one Celebrity Duet left now, which will be brought to you by Jack's second finalist. Singing 'How Do We Know' with Katie Costello, it's the stunning Chiara Galiazzo!

Chiara

Chiara, I have to be completely honest and say I wasnít the hugest fan of the performance. I can see why your mentor went with this your duet because it was stylistically suited to your voice, bit i didn't find it that interesting. It was a good performance but i honestly thought there would have been somethig extra from you tonight. I wish you the best of luck for the next performance and the first set of votes Chiara.
