"I loved working with Laura and feel as though the battle pushed me vocally. It was really tough but I enjoyed every moment," Sampa told Digital Spy.

Sampa and Oakes performed a version of Emeli Sandé's 2011 debut 'Heaven'.

"For this round Danny picks the song for us," revealed Sampa, who previously sang the Oasis track 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' at her blind audition.

As well as receiving positive comments from the judges, Sampa also won celebrity praise from Sinitta following her performance.

"The Eastern flavour haunted my soul. Abi is unique," the '80s popstar posted on Twitter.
