The final nine got the show off with a bang thanks to the pumping sounds of Wilson Phillips’ "Hold On".
We were then shown a glimpse of the contestants’ exclusive gig at the Macca’s Roof Top Party; before all-Australian songstress Vanessa Amorosi hit the stage to perform her new single Amazing.
Chris Isaak then rolled back the one o’clock, two o’clock, three o’clock, four, and got all Roy Orbison on us with his rendition of "Oh, Pretty Woman".

It was then time for two new acts - Johnny Ruffo and Audio Vixen - to realise they were singing for their X Factor survival.
