The 21-year-old will now battle it out against Michelle, Jamie and Welsh duo Into the Ark to win a life-changing recording contract with Polydor Records, in next Saturday’s final on ITV.

Coach Jennifer Hudson told him: “You get this look in your eye, you go to a whole other place and you take us with you.”

Fellow judge Gavin Rossdale said Mo’s performance was ‘like a religious experience’.

He added: “You’re sensational, I love your voice.

Mo said: “I’m just happy that I got through it and didn’t mess up the song.”

Speaking about what it would mean to get into the final, he said: “My time on The Voice has been a very humbling experience and one that I will be very grateful for. I feel I can leave with my head held high.”

Meanwhile the show bid farewell to Max, 24, who performed Boys Don’t Cry by The Cure.

Speaking after his performance he said: “It was top, the band just made it so easy for me to come out of my shell.

“Me and Mo didn’t expect to get this far. The odds of two flatmates from Warrington getting to the semi-finals is just ridiculous.

But only four singers will make it through to the first half of the final on Saturday, 1st April.

Tune in tonight at 8.30pm on ITV.

It was recently reported the two had  planned on auditioning for the show as a duo. With such differing and unique styles, with Max saying:

“We were going to audition as a duo because we were working together writing songs and thought we might try it together,” he said. “And then I think that wasn’t ready yet, so we did it as soloists and now we’re here.”
