So what happened in case you're wondering? Well lemme explain. Previously on The Chance Factor, we had our famous five singing twice with Unplugged and Lucky Dip, for some it was indeed lucky and others were left unplugged. But for one act, there was to be no third chance as Pajie Richardson was eliminated in 5th place, leaving all of our mentors one act left each. Tonight, it's the Semi-Final and our fantastic four all have one common goal, to make the Final. But first they are gonna need to take on songs from the year 2000 and then go for broke, but one act and one mentor will face the agony of leaving tonight for good.

Let's welcome your judges and the Semi-Finalists!

bboy1988 & The last of the Boys
James Michael

jackamakka & The last of the Girls
Lucy Spraggan

pingu58011 & The last of the Overs
Brenda Edwards

puppylove7 & The last of the Groups
Union J

So welcome everybody to where your end of Weekend event starts right here!
Before we start, I hope we get some energy. Judges, confirm your presence, if you please.

Jacka is not here but I have his "overall comments", which I'll post after each act's second performance.

Eliza is still on holiday and I have no idea where Stephen is.

Let's start with the Millennium round and she's holding on to the hope, it's Brenda Edwards!

Note: Imagine in more of Brenda`s tone.

Brenda
*Standing Ovation*

Brenda what a way to start to the show. You were fun up there and your vocals were just incredible. I just hope the public vote for you because you have been such a consistent act through this competition and you deserve to reach the final. You have just mastered soul and RnB and you have done very different things every week. Please pick up and vote for Brenda when line`s open. I can`t wait for your second song of the night!!!

A very interesting opener, but Brenda has one more song to go later.

Next up and they've been having a beautiful day (so have I with today's weather), it's Union J!

*Standing Ovation*

Boys at the very start of the competition I wasn`t the biggest fan of you but you have really grown on me as the weeks went on. At first when I saw the running order I thought it was just the actual song but when I saw the cover I just knew I would like it, and I did. The vocals were great and the harmonies when you went into the chorus were just great. I wish you good luck for the rest of the night boys!!!

So the boys get to an amazing start with a standing ovation.

Next up and oops, she's done it again (no, she's not been drinking with Rylan again), it's Lucy Spraggan!

Lucy
Lucy I am going to be brutally honest with you now. I am getting sick of hearing your voice. You have just done the same thing every single week. The only time you have done something different was that once. You haven`t done anything different. I am mentoring you on another show, and there are so many songs you could use which aren`t just acoustic cover`s. To get to the final I think you will have to do something spectacular with your second song!!!

So Lucy doesn't quite impress the panel but she'll have a second chance later.

Time for our last remaining boy and he's saying bye bye bye (wait, he hasn't been eliminated!), it's James Michael!

James
*Standing Ovation*

James unlike Lucy you haven`t done the same thing every week, and you have gone outside your comfort zone. That was back to basics and what you do best, and I loved it. I couldn`t take my eyes off you, and your vocals were just amazing. I absolutely loved it, and I just hope on the next performance you really rock it out and go for it with something different. AMAZING!!!

Wow! James gets amazing praise, but can he do it a second time?

So the Millennium round is over and now the acts have to almost literally go for broke in order to make the Final.

Back on stage and she's in love with another man (Uh oh!), it's Brenda Edwards!

Brenda Edwards:
*standing ovation*
Brenda, you've really came on over the competition and you're definitely my favourite outside my category! Both of your performances for tonight were outstanding and I'm sure you will be back next week! Well done!

Brenda
*Standing Ovation*

BRENDA EDWARDS you little cheater. That was just too amazing, and your vocals were so powerful that you just blew the audience away. I love how it started off quite soft but then got more powerful and striking as the song went on. You have to make the final Brenda. There has not been a bad performance through all the weeks Brenda and the public and your fans just have to pick up the phone and vote for you. When I got the Overs I thought I would never get this far, but I have and I am so happy I got this far with you. You are my little angel!!!!

Wow, Brenda gets two standing ovations, is her place in the final secured?

Back on stage and they've met the scientist backstage, it's Union J!

Boys that was a pretty good performance (Putting the girl`s voices out of my head), and it was a song that let you prove that you wanted to be here. A bit predictable but I have to be honest and say that I think you deserve to be in the final more than Lucy. Your vocals and harmonizes were very good and when you snag alone you were great. Good luck boys, and I mean this the best but I can see you leaving because of your mentor not being able to vote, and that is really sad!!!

Union J:
Boys, as good as you are I don't think you've been at your best throughout this competition and tonight your performances seemed a little bit too generic boyband for me. You have a lot of charisma and I wish that could come across more in your performances. Good luck regardless.

Ouch, a drop of praise for the boys, are they and Eliza in big trouble?

Back once again and she's facing mirrors, it's Lucy Spraggan!

Lucy Spraggan:
*standing ovation*
Lucy, I'm so proud to have mentored you thus far in the competition. You have such a great and interesting style which has been great to work with. I just hope this isn't goodbye and I get to mentor you for the Final next week if everybody VOTES FOR LUCY!! Great job!

Lucy
*Wakes up from sleep*

I am really sorry Lucy but I don`t think your mentor has been listening to us because me and Stephen have been telling you to do something different for weeks, but Jack hasn`t listened and I think this has put you at a big disadvantage. It did suit you, and the vocals were good but it is the same performance that you have been doing for weeks. I wish you the best of luck Lucy!!!

Ouch! So Lucy divides the panel, which side will the public choose?

Closing the show and he's gotta go (to the bathroom for some reason), it's James Michael!

James Michael:
James, you've been quite the dark horse of the competition for me and you've been very discrete but also very good! I hope you get through to the final as it would be unexpected but also a good gain. Good job!

James
*Standing Ovation*

Now that is doing something different. Take some notes Jack. That was just a great performance and you have done exactly what I wanted. Rocked it out, and your vocals were just incredible. You have been one of, if not the most consistent act in the competition and you have proved yet again how great you are. I don``t think you should be worried at all James, but good luck in the voting!!!!

So we end with amazing praise once again for James, but will his place in the final be guaranteed?

Alright, it was a very short one, but that is it, your acts have sung twice and the lines are now OPEN!

Here is a reminder of all of tonight's performances:

Spoiler


So if you want to vote, I'm sure you know the drill by now. Inbox me your rankings of 4-1, judges can vote too and half of them have already voted. The lines will close at 9pm, so you have nearly TWO hours to vote where tonight, ONE act and ONE mentor will be leaving the competition for good. So feel free to talk about tonight's Semi-Final for now.

What a short show. Probably due to Stephen and Jack not being here. I felt very lonely tonight!!!
