Watch the Sing-Off Between These Three Contestants
In the chair challenge round, each contestant chose their own song in a bid to wow the judges.
In the beginning of the kick off Alisah Bonaobra fought for her place at bootcamp after begging Cowell for a second chance and winning a place in Osbourne’s final six. But despite that, Grace Davies beat her by singing her self-penned track, ‘All By Myself.’
What surprised everybody was when Osbourne then swapped Grace with Alisah, shocking the judges with her decision.
Finally relenting, the judge invited Bonaobra back to the stage in a head-to-head acappella contest with teenagers Scarlett Lee and Rai-Elle.
Scarlett, the 19-year-old make-up artist from Surrey performed Elton John’s ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’ for the panel.
Rai-Elle, 16, was also allowed to keep her seat following her soulful offering of ‘Break Every Chain’ but Lee, who was the first to claim a seat, was sent home.
Alisa Bonaobra was back on stage with her performance of Jessie J’s ‘Bang Bang,’ showing off her skills both in rapping and singing. Bonaobra’s second song of the evening, which prompted Nicole Scherzinger to climb onto the table to dance, marks another notable success for the Philippines native on the show.
