Hello and welcome to the Quarter Final of NTA6 Mainstream! Last time, the final 8 all performed anthems and songs that had been inspired for something, however it was a bad night for Sara Bareilles who just missed out on the top 7 after being beaten in the bottom 2 by Mumford and Sons

This week the final 7 will be performing two songs from the emotions that they chose from the list of emotions! However it's going to be the toughest yet, as there is no jury vote and a DOUBLE elimination, meaning the two acts with the least amount of votes will be automatically eliminated, meaning your votes are more important than ever

Firstly, lets introduce the acts and their mentors!

Alexos and FrankMusik
aliyah101 and Bastille
Barry_Clarke and Sharleen Spiteri
Carlisle156 and Sara Bareilles
Dandem and Ryan Tedder
dondfan998 and Justin Timberlake
fireemblemcraze and P!nk
Gav 2.0 and The Strokes
I've Got Class and Joss Stone
jackel1234 and Imagine Dragons
jag02010 and Dragonette
JordanC55 and Biffy Clyro
Lucas and Mumford & Sons
pingu58011 and Tulisa
pothuthic and Cyndi Lauper
puppylove7 and The Script
r0ry101 and Sugababes
staceyxxx23 and Duffy
SacredDiablo and Neon Trees
Satanel and Jennifer Hudson
Strictly_Irish and Train
stonerparty and Dionne Warwick
Tomi Adenuga and NeYo
unclekevo and Katy B

Gav and The Strokes are kicking off the show tonight, with a song about the extreme Hate they'll feel for the voters if they get eliminated tonight

Reptilia

Note from Gav:
This song is about the breakdown of a relationship and the associated feelings of hate that go with a relationship failing

Last weeks Bottom 2 survivors Lucas and Mumford and Sons are up next, with a Surprise song that was recently performed at Glastonbury

A Little Help From My Friends
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0BELty_7jk&hd=1
Note from Lucas: I know this might come across as a self indulgent song choice, but I got the short straw with this 'theme') and it was a surprise as nobody was expecting them to close Glastonbury with it.

For predictions this week, just predict the 2 acts you think will be eliminated tonight, 2 points for each!

Really strong evening, there were only a couple of songs I didn't love, but those acts' other songs were two of the best so it made it really hard to rank

RESULTS TIME!

And I know I say this every week, but this really has been the closest week of voting by far! Pretty much every vote we've had has changed the rankings, especially at the beginning where each vote completely changed it

Will do results a little differently this time as it's a double with no jury, I'll announce the first 3 acts that are safe, then the act who has eliminated 7th. Out of the 3 remaining acts, I'll then announce the remaining 2 saved acts, and then eventually the act finishing in 6th!

Ok so, the first act with a place in the Top 5 and next week's semi final is...
