Tonight’s elimination starts off with the top 9 taking on Bastille’s monster hit Pompeii – with the contestants faring much better in their version of the song than The Voice coach Joel Madden!
After a show of ‘monster hits’ last night, host Luke Jacobz pressures the judges into giving their picks for the bottom two. RedFoo and Dannii both name Third D3gree, while Nat and Ronan say the think that Ellie has run out of luck.
But before we find out which way Australia has voted – international stars Rudimental take to the stage to perform a medley of tracks Right Here feat. Foxes and Feel The Love.
Kicking off with their new single Right Here the group have the audience going nuts down the front, before jumping into the track that introduced them to the world Feel The Love.
As well as their energetic performance the band also confirmed while onstage that they will be back in Australia early next year as a part of Future Music Festival.
After the usual agonising few moments (and a few surprise saves!) Ellie Lovegrove and JTR are named as the bottom two.
Before they take to the stage to sing for their lives – Irish indie group Kodaline sing their haunting track High Hopes, which they reveal was recorded in Ronan’s hometown studio!
But then it is on to Ellie and JTR to impress the judges and audience with their song choices in a last ditch effort to stay in the competition.
Ellie goes for a soul track with James Brown’s I Feel Good – working the crowd like she never has before!
Then it is on to JTR who perform John Mayer’s Waiting On The World To Change with their usual gorgeous melodies. But after being saved by Ronan last week – is it enough?
As usual RedFoo votes to save his act Ellie, putting his vote behind JTR. Dannii quickly countered by putting her vote with Ellie to go home. Nat Bass also votes for Ellie to go home with the vote once again coming down to Ronan.
After saying he wasn’t expecting the acts to be in the bottom two, he decides to take it to deadlock with the vote being handed back to Australia.
