Slowed it down: Fleur tried a dance-free performance, singing Alicia Keys, If I Aint Got You Andrea was last up and was given Hero by Mariah Carey, in an effort to change it up.

It was then the turn of the public to dish out the tracks. Lauren Platt was given Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia, which she slowed down like her first week efforts. Perfect performance: The song, the production, the styling - the judges had nothing but praise for Ben 'I love you Mel B was a huge fan of Ben's performance. The judges couldn't agree, with Mel telling him it lacked 'light and shade' and Simon and Cheryl suggesting it was just difficult to hear it sung by anyone else.
