Will Dami, Jai or Taylor take out the X Factor grand final?

X FACTOR'S most polished and powerful singers will battle it out in next week's Grand Final after the last group, THIRD D3GREE were eliminated.

After a huge Sunday night where each contestant performed two songs, it was Natalie Bassingthwaighte's remaining group and Ronan Keating's under 24 boys contestant, Taylor Henderson that were in the bottom two.

Both acts received standing ovations from the judges in their final showdown songs but with the judges unable to make a unanimous decision, it was sent to deadlock and THIRD D3GREE were sent home by the public vote.

THIRD D3GREE's mentor Nat said, "I'm devastated that the guys are gone but I'm so excited for everyone to hear what they'll do next."

Jacinta from THIRD D3GREE said, "We want to thank the judges and all the fans for supporting us. We've had the most amazing time and we're so excited for everyone to see what we're gonna do next."

The Top 3 going into the grand final are Dami Im, Jai Waetford and Taylor Henderson.

Tina Arena, UK girl group Little Mix and Imagine Dragons performed as part of the show.

The X Factor grand final will be bigger than Ben Hur with performances from One Direction, Fall Out Boy, Guy Sebastian and Katy Perry.

The Top 12 contestants will also return for the two night finale on Sunday 27th October 6.30pm and Monday 28th October 7.30pm.
