Following their performance, coach Jason Derulo proposed that the trio bond together to become a Team Jason supergroup and progress to the semi-final together.
In a shocking decision, the trio declined the offer to progress as a group, with Callum telling Derulo, "We believe in ourselves, we believe in our artistry enough separately that one of us still deserves a spot in that semi-final."
Following the announcement, Derulo made the tough decision to send only Callum through to the next round, with Andrew and Alex sadly being sent home.

In an emotional duet, Team Guy's Robbie Hunt and Charlie Pittman earned a standing ovation from the audience for their performance of Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars.

The fourth artist to be eliminated by Rita on the night was Levi X.
Despite momentarily forgetting the words to her sing, Giaan Jordan was praised by the judges for continuing her Battle. After being eliminated, the young star told mentor Jess, “I really looked up to you as a little girl. I would see you on my TV, you’d make me feel better about myself. You’ve taught me so much. I’m so grateful to have met you.”
