After the ads, the hosts and the acts are back onstage as Mario reminds us that yes, Fifth Harmony was number four. Emblem3 comes in third, and Simon looks pissed, although he still claims that he thinks they have a chance of winning. Rather less confident than he was a few rounds ago. As always, that leaves Tate and Carly in the top two. L.A. and Britney make a few comments, and finally Mario announces that the second-place singer for this week is Carly, making Tate the winner. "It has all changed at the top yet again," Mario says, as though it hasn't been these two all along. And as though it won't be those two in the finals in two weeks. Congratulations though, on making semifinals week the least suspenseful one of the entire series.
