Devastated to be potentially leaving the competition, Despina broke down in tears and was consoled by a virtual Kelly Rowland. Seeing her incredible talent, Kelly used one of her two wildcards on Despina, bringing her into the grand final week.

Despina switched to #TeamKelly in the Battle Round of the competition, leaving Boy George’s team.

“Working with artists like Despina really gets all my senses going. You are so meant to be here and I want to see how you grow, but I want to be the Coach to help you get there,” Kelly said during the Battles.

Revealed in last nights episode, each contestant will be choosing their own song for their final performance and craft “what will be your most important performance yet.”

The artists will face off on Sunday 7.00pm and Monday and Tuesday at 7.30pm on Nine.
