THE Let It Shine semi-finalists will be pulling out all the stops for Saturday night’s live show. 

Gary Barlow is on the hunt for five male leads to star in his upcoming musical about Take That. 

So far, fans have seen the hopefuls from the competition whittled down to four bands, each consisting of five boys, who will now be performing in the Let It Shine’s semi-final. 

They’ll go head-to-head in the hope of securing a place in the final of the BBC show next week, but only three of the four remaining bands will go through.

The two with the least amount of public votes will be forced to fight for their spot in the sing-off.

Hoping that they won’t end up in the sing-off, though, the bands have now revealed what they will be performing for judges Gary, Danni Minogue and Martin Kemp. 

Boyband Drive will perform their rendition of Girls On Film by Duran Duran.

Take That

Five to Five have chosen Billy Joel track Tell Her About It while Iron Sun will be taking on Lady Gaga hit Born This Way. 

Nightfall will give it their all to Without You by David Guetta and Usher. 

But it’s not just the three judges they’ll have to impress, as Gary, Danni and Martin will be joined by former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts on the panel too. 

AND on top of their own performances, the boys will group together to perform alongside Take That.

Gary will be taking to the stage with bandmates Mark Owen and Howard Donald, as well as the Let It Shine contestants, to perform their number one song Shine. 

It’s a big ask for the boys, but luckily there were a few celebrities on hand to offer them some advice. 

The Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge, Kimberley Walsh and The Wanted’s Jay McGuinness and Tom Parker surprised the hopefuls during their rehearsals. 

They stopped by to give the boys some advice on how they can succeed in a band.

The three bands that make it to the final will have to impress music icon Robbie Williams in the last live show of the competition. 

For the finale, Robbie is reuniting with his Take That bandmates

It’s unlikely that Jason Orange, who quit the band in 2015, will make a comeback, but Robbie will join Howard, Mark and Gary on stage. 

He will also sit on the panel as a guest judge.

A source told The Sun: “Gary wanted to finish off Let It Shine with a bang and he thought a Take That reunion to close the show was the perfect way to achieve it.” 

Let It Shine continues at 6.55pm on BBC One.
