New Priority have been booted out of Little Mix: The Search after a tense semi-final.
The boy band – made up of Lee Collinson, Talis Eros, Kaci Brookz, Zeekay, and Adam Harison – failed to impress the Black Magic singers, who chose to save Since September in the sing-off.
They initially belted out Ariana Grande’s Into You, but the cover wasn’t enough to make a dent in the leaderboard, with the judges admitting they were ‘disappointed’.
After an emotional performance of Kygo’s Lose Somebody, things became dramatic as the Shout Out To My Ex stars came to a split decision.
Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock opted to keep the group – but eventually backed down as Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirwall battled to save Since September.
‘The band that we’re going to put through to the final is Since September,’ Leigh-Anne told them.
‘It’s been an experience that money could never pay for, so we have to thank you,’ the boy band told host Chris Ramsey.
‘We ain’t gonna stop.’
The semi-final aired tonight after being pushed back from the original slot last week, due to a press conference held by Boris Johnson amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Releasing a statement to its official Twitter account at the time, a spokesperson for the show explained: ‘Little Mix: The Search has been postponed tonight for a BBC News Special.
‘The show will now become part of a big final event weekend, with the semi-final airing at 7pm on Friday 6th November, and the final at 6.05pm on Saturday 7th November.’
Little Mix are heading to the final with girl vocal group Nostalia, girl dance group Melladaze, RnB and Hip Hop group YChange, and live instrumental band Since September.
The winning band will then go on to support the stars on their UK tour next year.
Little Mix: The Search final kicks off on Saturday, at 6pm, on BBC One.
