The singers received the most votes from the public to secure a place in the last round.

They were followed by mother and son duo Mel And Jamie and singer Kathleen Jenkins.

The judges were asked to vote for which of those two acts they wanted to see in the final.

David Walliams and Alesha Dixon voted for Jenkins, while Amanda Holden went for Mel And Jamie.

Simon Cowell was left with the last vote and chose Mel And Jamie, meaning it was a split decision and the public had to decide.
