Lauren has left the competition
For the sing-off, Lauren performed Faith Hill’s ‘There You’ll Be’ while Andrea opted to sing ‘Who You Are’, originally by Jessie J.
After hearing the news, Lauren remained calm, praising her mentor Cheryl.
“I want to say thank you to the most incredible woman I've ever met in my life for sticking with me and giving me this opportunity,” she said.
The final three
In a new twist, each finalist has a ‘Battle Bus’ and they’ll be travelling around the UK to drum up support - and votes - ahead of Saturday’s grand finale.
Following the weekend's shows, Fleur is currently the favourite to win the competition.
