Pingu can't be with us tonight, but he hopes to vote.

Starting off the Semi-Final, we have our Big Ballads theme, were the acts must prove they can master huge and iconic songs.

So coming to Tom's Groups first, and he's guaranteed a place in the Final 2 as he still has all three acts left! These girls are our fabulous duo from Essex and they're going to Run to You...

Please welcome 2 Shoes:

Well tonight, I think it's gonna be a night of surprises and top-notch moments. But you two have come a very long way since the first live show. This was a very lovely cover and I really enjoyed the voices in this beautiful ballad. I hope you can do it again with your second performance later. A great start to the show, girls.

*standing ovation* Girls, beautiful, absolutely beautiful! You have it all, both of you are solid, well rounded artists who thoroughly deserve your place in this show! Now I know I have 3 groups in the semi-final, and you may be feeling scared, but just pray because that was beautiful!

Coming to the last of Steve's Girls now. She's defied all odds to get here, and wants to try and get through to next week to help give her mentor his first ever win.

Showing that she Wanna Love You Forever, please welcome...

*Standing Ovation*

Oh my god, Kimberley babe! I've been waiting to give you two songs ever since the beginning, this was one of them. This first performance was an explosive ballad song and such an underrated gem in my eyes. I wanna love you forever as well and with a voice like that, how can people not fall in love? It was a big performance but our second song will be a real tearjerker for everyone tonight. We believe in you and I believe in you!

Back to Tom's Groups again, and the third of the four acts still remaining. These girls are going to show us all that they deserve a place in next week's Final.

Showing they're willing to go Wherever You Will Go, it's the gorgeous...

*Standing Ovation*

Girls, it's been a rough ride so far, but that was your best performance to date...just brilliant. You should be aware that outside my category, I have been one of your biggest supporters. Tonight, this version of the song gave you a chance to bring out your solo voices and your harmonies. It was truly amazing and I have a feeling you'll do the double later tonight. Bravo, girls!

*standing ovation screaming "WOOO" and "YES YES YES YES" whilst jumping up and down* Bad Lashes, I am so proud of you! That was spine tingling, your harmonies were nothing short of perfect. Tonight we gave you all a solo part too; to really show us your vocals are individuals, then reined it back! I am so proud of you! I really wish you the best because you deserve it!

The last of our acts tonight is another of Tom's Groups. The duo here deliver beautiful performances week after week and they're willing to continue to show how they should be in next week's Final.

They deserve to have Someone Like You voting for them, please welcome...

Well for you two, I think it's outstanding that you have made it this far and I have always seen you as an underdog but every week and with each performance, you have gotten stronger and tonight was certainly no exception. That was a truly terrific rendition of an Adele classic and I can't wait for your next performance. A great job, well done indeed.

*standing ovation* 2 to go! Beautiful! Nothing short of gorgeous from you right there! The beauty of you two is you can take any song and make it your own, and that is the sign of a true artist! I am more than happy with you tonight! Well done! BRING ON ROUND 2!

Coming to our second set of performances of the night, and a wide open theme:
Get Me To The Final!
This is our acts last chance to prove why they deserve a chance to be in the Final next week.

So back to Tom's Groups again, and the Essex duo who we just love! Who Says they can't be in the Final?

Please welcome... 2 Shoes!

Girls, that was quite a terrific risk and with the Semi-Final, it's all about taking risks which I always do at this point. The song was a lovely choice and even though I slightly preferred your first song, this was still way above a few others you have done in this competition. You've been really great to watch as well as listen to and I wish you good luck with the votes.

*standing ovation* Girls, what can I say? Absolutely flawless! It maybe was a risk but for me it paid off! You two as artists have really come a very long way from the first live show. Your harmonies were there, the chemistry between the two of you is perfect, and I hope the right outcome happens tonight!

To Steve's last Girl again, and she wants so bad to get to the Final to defy the odds against her.

She doesn't want to Let Someone Else win, please welcome...

*standing ovation* Kimberley, talk about emotion!! Holy macaroni! There is not much more I can say to you, I have said how amazing you are every week! This song was great, Steve really has worked well with you, and I will be honest, I thought you would go pretty early but with Steve’s mentoring and your vocals you have won me over! Well done and best of luck!

*Standing Ovation, feels emotional*

Alright...keep it together now...I give in. When you started to sing, I was beginning to feel all the emotion in all the words you sung and by the chorus, I couldn't stop smiling and clearing my eyes. I really hope the audience loved this absolute tearjerker of a performance. This is one of few songs that really makes me emotional and I pray to god and to everyone who was there with you on that performance that you are in the final. Please do it for me and Kimberley.

*Standing Ovation*

Oooh girls, I needed some cheering up after that tearjerker and what can I say, that was absolute GENIUS! I always worry when it's an old song being covered, but this was a brilliant version of the song. It gave you the chance to show you dancing side which I've loved seeing throughout your time here. Two outstanding performances tonight and for me, you have done so much more than enough to make the final! GIRL POWER and all that.

*dances in seat and standing ovation* BAD LASHES!!! The acapella start to that song was genius! Those harmonies were perfection! You look and sound like a group, and you could very well be “the next generation of girl band!” A fantastic effort tonight! Both of your performances got Steve up, now that is an achievement within it's self!!! So proud of you thank you!!

Our very last act of the night from Tom's Groups, and these two want to show you how they deserve a place in the Final.

Hoping you aren't Torn by their performance, please welcome...
