Just a few days ago on Back To Basics, the top 9 acts all took on Floor Fillers in the hope to stay in the competition, whilst some got people dancing,others didn't quite get the viewers out of the chairs. But in the end, we had a twist in the form of a double elimination as Joe McElderry was eliminated instantly and in a surprising turn of events, Leona Lewis was also sent home, leaving Pingu with one act left still in the game. Tonight, the magnificent seven are going unplugged with their performances, so expect some chill-out-ish moments after the last two themes which were quite energetic.

Finding for your votes are:

pingu58011 & The last of the Boys
Aiden Grimshaw

Kuda_Kunaka & The Girls
Alexandra Burke
TreyC Cohen

jackamakka & The Overs
Ruth Lorenzo
Kye Sones

bboy1988 & The Groups
Little Mix
MK1

Good evening folks and welcome to a special Tuesday night event that starts right here!
So before we start, let's hope the panel feel good about this. Judges, please confirm your presence.

Jacka isn't here tonight as he is not feeling well enough to be here, so we're a judge down.

We're starting off with the groups again since there aren't that many acts left, but kicking off the show, it's MK1!

MK1

MK1, it was an ok start to the show. It didn`t really blow me away like you usually do. I also didn`t see how it was acoustic, but I suppose it is really hard to do that with you guys, but it was a slowed down version of the song. Charlie the vocals were good, but I felt that simeon was the one that did the most in that song and sort of outshone you charlie. It was good, but I have seen better of you, and for maybe the first time I don`t think your safe!!

MK1

Guys, is there any theme you can’t absolutely smash. That was absolutely amazing and I actually love that song and your version really lifted it to another level with both of you rapping tonight. Guys this is the exact reason why you deserved to go a lot further in the real competition and also the reason why you deserve your place in this competition. I really hope that the public will continue to vote for you and allow me the honour of continuing working with you.

Its a live lounge cover which if you look here is an acoustic cover. Obviously due to the exceeding rapping Charlie and SIm were both rapping

You guys have been one of the most consistent acts in the competition so far but tonight, im sorry but that was your weakest performance to date. The vocals weren't so good in my opinion but the rapping was okay. As I said this is your weakest night and I doubt you are safe guys but I hope people would track were you've come and some amazing performances in the past, and still save you tonight

Well, so we begin with mixed comments for MK1, could they be safe later tonight?

Next up is the first of the two girls and it's been covered a lot but here is her cover, it's Alexandra Burke!

Alexandra Burke

Alex, those vocals were just beautiful. Unplugged is a week that I personally I don`t like as I think some acts can be mistaken for boring, but what a beauty that was Alex. This is different to anything you have done, and you are safe tonight. Yet again another good performance!!

Alexandra

Alexandra, during the last show I was impressed by your performance but tonight I feel this was a bit of a hell of a step back with the song choice. This song was pretty safe and predictable. I honestly wish your mentor didn’t choose a well known Emelie Sande song as they are overplayed and overused in shows and I think you may suffer due to the safe performance. This style of performance from you wouldn’t make me vote for you, and I am only saying this as I like you as a contestant but you need to step it up and not sing this type of safe song.

Alexandra my girls, I think were turned a new leaf last week, cause soul is when you're at your best, and you were tonight! We will be switching it up again in the future if you receive votes tonight but tonight I think you smashed that Sande number out of the park, even better than her in my opinion. Excellent Alexandra

So Alexandra has divided the panel, which side will the public choose?

Now for the first of the Overs and he's had a few small bumps in the competition, it's Kye Sones!

Kye Sones

Kye, last week it was a good performance but predictable. This week even though it is unplugged, I was falling asleep. I think your mentor could have picked a better song for you, because that didn`t seem to go anywhere. There was bits where I thought it was going to step up but then it went back to the same bit. It was good vocals, however I think you are in trouble again tonight!!

Kye

Kye I am not overly impressed by that song choice tonight. It like Alexandra’s song was extremely safe and predictable. Vocally it was better than last week’s performance but still nothing special for me. I still stand by my previous comments about you Kye. I think your mentor really needs to take a rick with you or he will loose you as an act.

I really like you as an artist, and I bet you wish you could choose Chris Martin every week cause that's were you're at your best. Ed is a good song writer but not much about the vocals if im honest, I didn't enjoy that performance vocally. I think you are the act that has taken longest to find their feet in this competition and to be honest, Im getting slightly impatient, and I think the fans might be as well so I advice you to up your game mate, before its too late

Not good comments for Kye overall, will he be in trouble tonight?

Off to the groups once more and this is quite a unique performance from the muffins, it's Little Mix!

Little Mix

Girls, I loved it yet again. Those harmonies were just the voices of angels, and when you all sang on your own it was just amazing. What I like about this group is that there isn`t a lead singer which makes you special. You really are a match made in heaven, and you will not be leaving tonight girls!!

Girls you like MK1 have been the 2 most exciting contestants on the show and have never failed to deliver. Tonight girls you have delivered yet again. The use of an orchestra as you backing was in my opinion a stroke of genius. Vocally it was very cool and edgy and was just an amazing performance. Those harmonies are just spectacular girls and Leigh-Anne your rapping skills are just beautiful. I love you girls and I hope you will get the votes tonight from the viewers.

I think by now you must be bored of all the praise you receive every week... and I don't think that's about to change anytime soon. I have to be honest, I was confused by the song choice, I don't think it was the best one could have chosen for you, but I do sorta get the reason behind it cause those harmonies were so on point I was really impressed so Well Done!

Apologies for the long wait, had to do dishes.

Anyways, that's very good comments for the girls once again, can they continue this momentum of praise?

Now for the girls once more and she's on the edge of glory, it's TreyC Cohen!

TreyC Cohen

TreyC, for the first time ever I loved your performance. Those big notes were just out of this world, and it also had the softer side to your voice. I am so glad you stepped it up because I thought you would be in the bottom if not. I think you should be safe tonight!!

Treyc

Treyc this is one of the few Lady Gaga songs that I really adore and I think was a nice choice for you. My only critic was that your mentor should have chosen something else this week for you and used the actual version of the song at a later date as I find this version of the song doesn’t sit right me for some reason. I think it really needs the lift in tempo, but that is my personal opinion.
