Acacia and Aaliyah both auditioned for the show, initially as solo artists. The two girls were put together by the Judges – made up of Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Ayda Field-Williams and Robbie Williams. They then went on to deliver an incredible performance of ‘Bang Bang’ by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj.
At the Six Chair Challenge, the duo’s first performance was stopped, with Judge Robbie Williams asking them to perform ‘Bang Bang’ again. Their performance not only earned them a seat, but they also received the Golden Buzzer, meaning they immediately earned a place in the Judges’ Houses.
In their Judges’ Houses performance, the girls performed a mash-up of Soul II Soul’s ‘Back To Life’ and Stormzy’s ‘Big For Your Boots’ for Judge Robbie Williams and his special guest David Walliams.
