Ladies and gentlemen, it's finally time. After 10 shows of incredible performances by the latest Mix Factor top 16, this competition will end right here. That's right, today we will add another Mix Factor champion to the Wall of Fame. Let's see who we lost along the way first shall we?
Spoiler

That leaves us with only three acts left standing. One of them will win the competition tonight, while the other 2 will have to come to terms with bitter disappointment. Tonight's final is split up in two parts. During the first part, each act will sing two songs - another song from a past theme and a duet with a celebrity. After these performances the lines will open for a short time and when they close the act that finished in 3rd place will be announced. Then, the remaining two contenders will sing their song of the series and their winner's single before lines are re-opened. Once the voting lines close again, the winner of The Mix Factor 4 will be revealed.

Are you as excited for this as I am? Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the judges and the Mix Factor finalists once more!
The classic Mix Factor intro theme seems oddly appropriate here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ukU6pqD6Ak

Alien Beat Club

Fifth Harmony

fireemblemcraze and the last of the girls

Bella Ferraro

pingu58011 who has no remaining over 25s...

Judges, I really hope you're all here. Please confirm your presence if you are.

Everyone is here, that's just fantastic!

Since we're not waiting for anybody, let's kick off tonight's Grand Final with the 'Favourite Theme' theme. Apparently one of Niall's groups liked being Lost In Space so much that they wanted to do it again. Singing Up Up Up by Givers, it's the phenomenal Alien Beat Club everyone!

Note: Up Up Up is the general direction you to need to go in to get to space!

Ohhhhh guys that was just sensational. It suited your vocals so well, and your vocals were amazing. I really love how Niall has mentored you throughout the competition and to be honest I thought you would be gone in the first few weeks so look how far you have come. Tonight was just lovely it was all about the vocals while still being a bit upbeat. Looking forward to our duet very much!!!

Well guys, who would've thought that you would make it all the way to the Grand Final?! I thought this was a very unique song choice to start the show and it looks to be a nail-biting one as well. The song was very good, but not totally awesome as some of your other performances. That said though, I think you're gonna pull it off in the next round and if that happens, you could be the surprise win. Good start to the show.

What a way to open the show! Well done firstly guys for making it here. I absolutely love you. The song was absolutely lovely and I think your direction is really interesting. I understand indie pop for you – your single Simple Things is very much in this style. You were entertaining, the song was full of energy, your vocals were great. If anything the only thing I have to say was that the song was a bit repetitive and I would have liked to have heard something to make you stand out more at this stage. But still such a catchy song! I think your mentor has incredible taste in music – e.g. with Moonrabbit and the amazing Free performance and now this one! Wooo!

Alien Beat Club

I know the link here to the theme is pretty tenuous, but in my defence I had it to change the theme last minute when I found out Roxie had picked the Summer theme! Anyway, I thought this was a brilliant start to the final! A fun and quirky song that is full of energy and completely suits you guys to a tee and encapsulates what you are as a group! I'm so happy you guys made it to the final as you've produced some brilliant performances and definitely deserve it, and I can't wait to show everyone what else I've got lined up for you!

Great comments for Alien Beat Club to start off with. It's got to be said that they do have the role of underdogs at the moment because of a few off-weeks earlier, but then again everyone knows how DS loves their underdogs.

Time for the second performance of what is already an amazing final. Singing another Recent Release, it's Fifth Harmony with Glowing by Nikki Williams!

Fifth Harmony
*Standing Ovation and dancing*

Girls you know I am your biggest fan and you have made me so proud as a harmonizer throughout the game. Tonight suited you so well and it was a true final performance. I just loved it, and I was dancing all around and you just got me in the groove. But what I loved about it was that it was upbeat while still having emotion in the song, and I am so excited to see who you will be dueting with because I just know it will be amazing. I am making no secret of this now #TeamFifthHarmony

Ooooh, girrrrrrrrls, you totally nailed it and I LOVED IT! This was a bloody terrific song choice for sure. The words in the song totally relates to what you've gone through since the beginning. The performance was uplifting, it was amazing for me to sit up and dance away in my chair. That was absolutely incredible girls, I'm looking forward to your second performance.

Well done girls for making it this far. You have done an incredible job since Week 7. I really enjoyed the song, full of energy. You’ve had this great dance R&B direction. I think in terms of suitability, the song was a bit too quirky for some of you, especially some of those high notes? I prefer it when you had the more neutral tone which could fit all the girls like the Melody Thornton song which was just magical and the Jessica Mauboy song. You got the tone so spot on that week. I still really enjoyed the song and like Pingu said it was full of energy as well as emotion.

Fifth Harmony

*Standing Ovation*

You've had a pretty rocky road here with two quite unexpected bottom two appearances, but I'm so glad we got you to the finals as you completely deserve it, and this performance shows exactly why! I wanted to start off with an upbeat, dance song as I've got a few ballads lined up if you make it to the second part of the final, so I thought this song was just perfect for you to start off with. It completely fits your vocals and is the type of performance that you've really excelled at so far in this game and also similar to the type of stuff you've released outside of the game. A brilliant first performance from you and I can't wait to show everyone what else you've got to give tonight!

Great comments for Fifth Harmony regarding their first performance. Can they keep up their momentum and propel themselves straight into the final two?

After two energetic songs it's time to sit back and relax a bit. What better way to do that is there than hearing the stunning Bella Ferraro sing Child by Natalie Holmes, her second Summer Song this series?

Note: Song was released on 18th August 2013 according to iTunes and Youtube

Bella
*Standing Ovation*

Bella I was hoping I would hate this so I could say Anna deserved a place in the final more than you but that was amazing in my opinion. Your vocals were just beautiful, and it didn`t feel very summery but I understand the relation to the theme. You really have been great throughout tonight and in that performance. You don`t need upbeat, you just need to be your beautiful self. Looking forward to your duet very much!!!

Bella, I am so happy to see you in the Final, you should've made it to this point on the real show (curse those Jason voters, lol.). You're the only one who has never faced the sing-off and it's not hard to see why. This was a lovely song picked by your mentor. The style and the performance definitely makes you look and fell right at home. I so cannot wait for your next performance, I think it's gonna be magical.

Bella Ferraro

Bella you've probably had one of the easier rides to the final, being the only act not to face the bottom two. But you've produced some amazing performances along the way and more than deserve your place here. This was a great song to start off with, a really beautiful song that sat on your vocals well and really encompassed the quirkiness and sincerity that we always see in your performances. Great job Bella, and I look forward to seeing what else Roxie has lined up for you in this final!

Hi honey! Firstly, thank you all so much for keeping this incredible lady in! I wanted to do a theme which I hadn’t done yet with my category and so I chose this. That tone of yours is so pretty. The song has a bit of an ethereal quality which goes back to Bella’s first audition. As I said before, Bella’s got the type of voice where she can really tell a story and this song showcases exactly that. Those little quirky runs she does in the chorus sound exactly like what Bella would do. The tones match Bella’s soft sweet indie folk pop voice wonderfully. I was a bit defeated after last week having lost two acts in two weeks (albeit due to my stupidity) and I was determined to get it so right this week and I hope everyone felt so.
