It’s been top telly talk for a while now and unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ll know the final of Let It Shine is next week.

But who made it through?

Saturday night’s semi-final was a showstopper indeed. From the opening number featuring a certain 90s boyband *cough* Take That *cough* to each of the bands taking on their own versions of Take That’s back catalogue, it was an epic show.

But when it came to the dreaded sing-off, only Nightfall and Five To Five made it through, leaving two bands to sing their little hearts off for survival; Iron Sun and Drive (who were newly re-formed after being in the bottom two last week).

Both bands had to tackle The Beatles classics, with Iron Sun, who were first on, singing The Long and Winding Road (#classicboybandsong) and Drive belting out their best version of Something.

Here are both songs for you to enjoy:

Ultimately judges Gary Barlow, Danni Minogue, Martin Kemp, and guest judge Ashley Roberts, saved all of Drive and sent home all of Iron Sun – meaning Alexis Gerred, Clinton Elvis, Harry Brown, Jordan Harvey and Matt Knight all left the competition.

But that means the five boys from Drive – Mark Angels, Matt Thorpe, Jonnie Halliwell, Conor McLoughlin and Jazzie Mattis – are all through to next week’s final.

They join Bradley Johnson, Danny Colligan, Huw Roberts, Jason Brock and Julius Wright from Nightfall and AJ Bentley, Curtis T Johns, Nick Carlsberg, Sario Solomon and Yazdan Qafouri of Five to Five.

And with Robbie Williams set to join (rejoin? re-rejoin?) his Take That bandmates when he becomes a guest judge on the final show, it looks set to be a scorcher indeed.

See you there!

Let it Shine returns for the final next Saturday at 6.55pm on BBC One.
