Nicholas McDonald dared to take on hit classic Greatest Day by Take That, which won compliments from band member Gary, while Luke Friend's cover of Skinny Love had the judges saying he should perform at Glastonbury.

After being in the bottom two last week, Rough Copy came back fighting and had crowds up and dancing with their rendition of two R Kelly songs.
