He's back! Simon Cowell returns to the UK show to let the judges know what category
When the judges deliberated over the groups they told five acts they had made it through before asking two bands to battle it out for the final place.
Mitsotu, Duke, MK1, Poisonous Twins, and Rough Copy all landed spots at the next stage of the competition but Gary Barlow told GMD3 and Triple J that they must battle it out in a sing off.
Triple J sang I Wanna See You Tonight while GMD3 performed That God Blessed The Open Road
Gary then told the group their fate: ‘OK guys, you have been neck in neck throughout this competition and I’m sorry it has come down to this, but we have to pick one of you right now. The act taking the last place of judge’s houses of the groups is….GMD3. '
