Anthony Russell dresses to impress but can he win a seat?

It’s Anthony Russell as we’ve never seen him before as he gets suited and booted in a bid to impress Louis with his rendition of Joe Cocker’s You Are So Beautiful.

And, while Simon fears we've "lost" the real Anthony, Nicole strongly disagrees and is happy we got to see another side of him. As for Louis, three really IS the magic number as he gives Anthony a chair.

It’s Louis' turn to pick from the Boys with Lloyd Macey up first! Will his performance of Feels Like Home earn him a seat?
