This programme contains some strong language

Some people go, "Singers - blah blah. They have it all. They have money and nothing to worry about."

0:00:060:00:12

I think that it's different whenever you are a singer

0:00:120:00:15

because you don't know how much hard work you put into it, like.

0:00:150:00:19

It is really nerve-wracking and one wee slightest off-tune

0:00:190:00:23

can ruin your whole career and everything,

0:00:230:00:25

know what I mean?

0:00:250:00:26

I like to change my hair with my mood, so I'm going back to pink.

0:00:280:00:31

I don't think the purple was me.

0:00:310:00:33

My hair's fucking blue.

0:00:330:00:35

-I have blue hair.

-She's got blue hair.

0:00:350:00:38

-It's green. It's a wee bit green and white.

-It's fucking green.

0:00:380:00:42

-Blue bleach on purple hair with the pink around that.

-Oh, sweet divine.

0:00:420:00:45

I know my bit. It goes...

0:00:470:00:48

# And it's me, I know I know my name

0:00:480:00:51

# Cos I say it proud. #

0:00:510:00:53

I don't know the song.

0:00:550:00:56

# Everything of what I always do

0:00:580:01:01

# Looking for the right track

0:01:010:01:03

# Always on the wrong track. #

0:01:030:01:06

Don't know the song.

0:01:060:01:07

That's really bad.

0:01:070:01:09

-# Looking for the

-right track

0:01:090:01:11

-# Always on the

-wrong track

0:01:110:01:13

# But are you catching All these tracks

0:01:130:01:15

-# That I'm

-laying down for you. #

0:01:150:01:19

-Done.

-How is it?

0:01:200:01:21

The band's called Voodoo, so that was the hardest part.

0:01:390:01:44

All we were doing was arguing over names, like.

0:01:440:01:46

We had some really groovy names.

0:01:460:01:48

What was the other name?

0:01:480:01:49

G-string! I loved G-string but I think it was a bit trashy.

0:01:490:01:54

How was your new job? Carly started a new job today.

0:01:540:01:56

I started a new job - it was awful.

0:01:560:01:58

'Katrina's the mummy of the band - she has to look after me and Vicky.'

0:01:580:02:01

Them two are really laid back where I would be more uptight

0:02:010:02:05

and get worried and stressed about things

0:02:050:02:07

but I think you maybe need that cos if them two were on their own

0:02:070:02:10

they'd be, "Oh, it'll be done tomorrow," where I'm like, "Get it done now."

0:02:100:02:14

-She made one change. All of us.

-Did she?

0:02:140:02:18

She's brilliant, she's amazing.

0:02:180:02:21

'I've always sang. Always, from when I was, like, no age.'

0:02:210:02:25

And then when I had my wee boy I had to put it all on the back burner

0:02:250:02:29

but it was sort of still alive in me and I just needed to do something

0:02:290:02:34

cos I'm starting to get on a bit in years. I need to sort it out.

0:02:340:02:37

Go, Kats - big grin.

0:02:370:02:40

She's a mute make-up artist.

0:02:400:02:41

I look like a tranny.

0:02:410:02:43

How do you? You look like a punk. You're going to look class in photos.

0:02:430:02:47

-Does my hair look like a tranny?

-Your hair's gorgeous.

0:02:470:02:49

You never look like a tranny, to be fair, like.

0:02:490:02:52

Put your back foot further back - it will elongate you. The other way.

0:02:560:03:01

Yeah, perfect.

0:03:040:03:07

Carly's amazing. She really knows what she's doing but I feel a bit daft.

0:03:070:03:11

It's all right saying we're not chasing the fame game and all

0:03:130:03:17

cos I suppose we are, like.

0:03:170:03:18

-Of course you are.

-Of course you are.

0:03:180:03:21

We're not going to say, "We're all about the music."

0:03:210:03:23

Obviously, the music's really central to it but we're really ambitious.

0:03:230:03:27

-We all want to succeed, don't we, like?

-Yeah, definitely.

0:03:270:03:30

# Setting my sights on a falling rock star, I ain't easy... #

0:03:370:03:43

We've been in the recording studio since about 9pm.

0:03:430:03:45

It's been going quite well.

0:03:450:03:47

The last time we were here, we didn't have the vocal coach with us,

0:03:470:03:50

so it's a lot easier this time cos it's hard trying to remember

0:03:500:03:53

all the harmonies and changes in the song.

0:03:530:03:55

What we're going for is the very last line in this wee bit

0:03:550:03:59

is going to be just an... # Oooh, with all the right moves. #

0:03:590:04:04

-No...

-It doesn't sound good, like.

-# With all the right moves. #

0:04:040:04:09

-That's it, yeah.

-(It's not.)

0:04:090:04:10

-Rock it out a wee bit.

-What?

-Rock it out a wee bit.

0:04:100:04:14

I'll be all, like, # I prefer... #

0:04:140:04:16

-That sounds a thousand... That is brilliant compared to that other one.

-That is much better.

0:04:160:04:20

# I prefer

0:04:210:04:24

# Oooooh... #

0:04:260:04:29

'At the minute, I'm actually trying to put a harmony down'

0:04:290:04:32

and make it sound rocky at the same time, which is becoming a hard task.

0:04:320:04:37

Harder than would be expected and I'm getting a wee bit annoyed.

0:04:370:04:40

It's not about what I want, it's for the good of the song.

0:04:400:04:43

That does not sound good. I'm sorry, it sounds awful.

0:04:430:04:46

-Why don't you sing it?

-It's not that, it's just the "oooh".

0:04:460:04:49

It just doesn't sound like there's a place for it.

0:04:490:04:52

I'm only saying what I think. I don't like it. It sounds like shit.

0:04:520:04:55

-Well, then don't ask me to sing it.

-I'm only telling the truth.

0:04:550:04:59

-Carly!

-I don't criticise you and say you don't sound...

0:04:590:05:02

You criticise Vicky every other day - "Sing it like this, like that."

0:05:020:05:05

I'm only telling the truth and Vicky's saying it too. We're trying to help you.

0:05:050:05:10

No, but I'm fed up. I'm 26. Do you know what I mean?

0:05:100:05:14

She's 19, I'm trying to help her.

0:05:140:05:16

Wee things like this are what ruin a band

0:05:160:05:19

so I'm a wee bit concerned, to be honest.

0:05:190:05:21

But that's the thing, you don't say this to the camera.

0:05:210:05:25

You wait till you're on your own with me.

0:05:250:05:27

I felt you were being very patronising, saying, "I'm 26 and she's only 18."

0:05:270:05:31

-You have eight years on me. Maybe I do need to grow up.

-I didn't say that, that's your words.

0:05:310:05:35

-No, you said I'm 26...

-I'm just saying have a wee bit of respect for what I have to say.

0:05:350:05:40

I'm saying it in front of the camera cos we're close friends

0:05:400:05:43

and I don't want the camera thinking we're not.

0:05:430:05:46

-Yeah.

-And that's why I'm saying sort it out now.

0:05:460:05:48

So, come here. Carrying on like that.

0:05:480:05:51

We've only known each other three months and we're best friends,

0:05:510:05:55

always on the phone, going out, doing everything together.

0:05:550:05:58

I love the both of them. They're brilliant, both of them.

0:05:580:06:02

# I might be the way everybody likes to say

0:06:020:06:06

# I know what you're thinking about me

0:06:060:06:10

Imagine - mohawk, Curious Tails jacket. Very cool, very...

0:06:100:06:14

-I think he needs...

-Yeah, but I'm sorry, listen.

0:06:140:06:17

Again, did anybody here ever watch The First Wives Club?

0:06:170:06:22

-Yes.

-You know the bit whenever Monique's mother... Remember, Goldie Hawn doesn't get the part

0:06:220:06:27

and the girl's with her and she's getting into the character and she goes, "I'm thinking streaks."

0:06:270:06:32

That's what yous are doing to me - streaks.

0:06:320:06:34

Before you're thinking about what's real here.

0:06:340:06:36

What's real is an injection of your voices with each other, getting your dynamics.

0:06:360:06:40

Even for now, just go do-ba-do - put a little more street into it, a bit more funk into it.

0:06:400:06:45

To stand there like that, it's just making my bowels move, really.

0:06:450:06:48

# And it's me, I know, I know my name

0:06:480:06:51

# Cos I say it proud. #

0:06:510:06:53

No, that's ridiculous.

0:06:530:06:54

That's not even in tune, Carly, for some reason.

0:06:540:06:57

I don't know - is it not nice for you to sing?

0:06:570:07:00

You just have to pretend, like. It's like an act.

0:07:000:07:03

Just put your ego on and give it

0:07:030:07:05

and be yourself when you're not doing it. That's the plan.

0:07:050:07:09

-Yeah. He's a wee bit hard but he gets results.

-That's the main thing.

0:07:090:07:13

No, like, I was scared to bring yous up cos, you know,

0:07:130:07:16

my skin's this thick already because of him but I know a way to take him.

0:07:160:07:20

-He gets results so don't be taking it personally.

-I don't, I'm loving it.

0:07:200:07:24

It's brilliant, it's what we need.

0:07:240:07:26

I think they need an awful lot of harmony work in order to make it as a pop band.

0:07:270:07:32

Listening to Kat sing on her own,

0:07:320:07:35

you'd see that she's very much a soloist.

0:07:350:07:37

I could see her being very grungy and on her own.

0:07:370:07:40

I don't know how well she's going to mould into the whole group.

0:07:400:07:44

But I do think if they pull it together and try to get more movement out of her,

0:07:440:07:48

I just think... Cos she's got a great voice.

0:07:480:07:50

I just think they need to keep it tight.

0:07:500:07:53

# Looking for the right track Always on the wrong track

0:07:530:07:57

# But are you catching all these Tracks

0:07:570:08:01

# That I'm laying down for you. #

0:08:010:08:03

Do you want to know something?

0:08:030:08:05

That was actually beginning to sound like something, girls, honestly.

0:08:050:08:09

'Their potential's there. The voices are there, everything was there.'

0:08:090:08:13

It's just THEY are not there.

0:08:130:08:15

I'm just so skint. I don't have a job so...

0:08:150:08:18

-I'm going to be on the look for a job.

-Victoria wants to be a lady of leisure already.

0:08:180:08:23

-She's just left a job.

-She's living the dream, already.

0:08:230:08:27

I just can't be doing working. I just don't like working.

0:08:270:08:30

-She just wants a band.

-I just want money for nothing.

0:08:300:08:34

So, we're now going to Lavery's to try and get some money. Money!

0:08:400:08:44

So, we'll be saying to peeps, "Get the money out." Let's hope they're a wee bit drunk.

0:08:440:08:49

-SHE SCREAMS

-No, I can't. I'm not even joking.

0:08:500:08:54

I'm not even joking, please, I can't do this. I'm not going in.

0:08:540:08:57

-You have to.

-No, I swear I can't do it. I can't.

0:08:570:09:00

Please help Belfast band Voodoo.

0:09:000:09:03

-Hi, do you want to help Belfast band Voodoo?

-Ah, no.

-Stingy!

0:09:040:09:08

-Thank you.

-Oh, thanks very much, thank you.

0:09:080:09:11

-Our launch night will be here on 20th June.

-Yes, 20th June in here.

0:09:110:09:15

-Upstairs?

-Yeah, come and see us.

0:09:150:09:17

-Thank you very much.

-Thanks so much.

0:09:170:09:21

Nothing's changed, you got your loan in two weeks ago.

0:09:210:09:25

-Bollocks. Lying bastards.

-What sort of music do you play?

-Just really soft rock.

0:09:250:09:29

I fucking hate soft rock, to be honest.

0:09:290:09:31

-What's wrong with it?

-Like what, fucking like...

0:09:310:09:33

-Kind of Pink, like.

-Pink's not soft rock, she's fucking pop.

0:09:330:09:37

She's moved on.

0:09:370:09:39

I'm sorry, I can't look at myself in the mirror

0:09:390:09:42

if I'm supporting a Pink-style rock band.

0:09:420:09:45

Who got the most money? Me - you have to be nice.

0:09:450:09:47

-Yeah, cos you know the manager.

-You have to be nice.

0:09:470:09:50

# Voodoo I can do what you do, easy. #

0:09:500:09:53

Firstly, we have Emmanuel eating us alive for everything we're worth,

0:09:530:09:58

then we come out with all these people who really don't want to give us any money.

0:09:580:10:02

-They keep saying no and we're like, OK.

-Don't get what we're doing.

0:10:020:10:05

55 quid, and there's about another - I'd say 20, 40, 60 -

0:10:050:10:12

I'd say there's about 60 quid there.

0:10:120:10:15

Excuse me, can we have one more Coke, please?

0:10:150:10:18

Our launch is on the 20th of June in Lavery's,

0:10:180:10:21

and it's a 500-people capacity, so we're hoping to fill that out

0:10:210:10:26

and we're just going to do a very theatre-style show

0:10:260:10:30

and really theatrical and fire-breathers and that sort of thing going on.

0:10:300:10:34

Cos Carly has so many friend dancers eager to get on board,

0:10:340:10:37

it's going to put her in a very difficult position.

0:10:370:10:39

I might not even sit in the auditions, to be honest.

0:10:390:10:42

You know them best. You know more about dancing than us.

0:10:420:10:45

-We'll be sitting there...

-He has nice hair.

-OK.

0:10:450:10:49

-Can you get them to take off their tops?

-No!

0:10:490:10:52

Do you know what we'll have to do? We'll have to go home and learn every song individually ourselves,

0:10:520:10:57

-so we know them for whenever they get polished up.

-We'll have to get dancers in for rehearsals NOW.

0:10:570:11:03

-Before now.

-Do they have to have good physique?

0:11:030:11:05

Don't be writing that.

0:11:050:11:08

-The drag act or the dancers?

-The dancers.

-No, because...

0:11:080:11:12

No, the drag act, I mean.

0:11:120:11:14

-Not them ones.

-They're probably all like...

-Yeah, the dancers have to.

0:11:140:11:19

We just want the 25 minutes we're on stage to be really remembered.

0:11:300:11:34

Hit, and you're looking at us, down. Ripple up.

0:11:340:11:38

I'm looking for someone who's going to be in time with the music

0:11:380:11:44

and going to have a nice style of dancing.

0:11:440:11:46

Going to make us look good rather than outshine us.

0:11:460:11:49

We want backing dancers, we still want to be the front.

0:11:490:11:52

We'll chat about it but I'm going to leave it up to Dean and Carly.

0:11:520:11:56

We don't know who we're going with yet. I'm deciding, not fucking him.

0:12:020:12:05

-You mind tell him, Katrina.

-Right. You just tell him. You just say...

0:12:050:12:09

-We'll all tell him.

-I want to go with them all for the opening number.

0:12:090:12:13

For the big one, all of them.

0:12:130:12:15

Well, if it's in your budget

0:12:150:12:17

to have that many dancers.

0:12:170:12:19

-It is, it's fine.

-Cool. I'm happy enough with that.

0:12:190:12:21

We've got the dancers, so that's the main thing.

0:12:210:12:24

So, let's see how good they are at rehearsals. That's another story.

0:12:240:12:28

# Follow me, show me What you can do. #

0:12:280:12:32

-Yeah?

-Yeah, good.

0:12:320:12:34

Step. Yes, that's it. That's your counts.

0:12:340:12:37

Yeah, let me see you do that. That's your counts.

0:12:370:12:41

Let me see yous two do that.

0:12:410:12:44

It'll be grand, stop panicking.

0:12:440:12:46

I'm shit at this.

0:12:460:12:48

Kat and Vic are having a heart attack about dancing. He's only doing a bit of head-bopping.

0:12:480:12:53

Wait till he starts the routines, she'll take a heart attack.

0:12:530:12:56

-But we're not doing routines.

-We are. It's a flipping show.

0:12:560:12:59

Five, six, seven, eight.

0:12:590:13:00

-Oh, my God. Injury before you go on.

-Is my tooth chipped?

0:13:030:13:06

Is it not chipped? That's OK, keep going.

0:13:060:13:10

The girls are brilliant.

0:13:100:13:12

I feel sorry for them cos they have to remember harmonies,

0:13:120:13:15

the words of their songs, their movements, their positions,

0:13:150:13:18

their character, trying to perform it all. And the boys in the background -

0:13:180:13:22

the two of them have to work together.

0:13:220:13:25

# All eyes on me in the centre of The ring just like a circus

0:13:260:13:30

# When I crack that whip everybody Gonna trip just like a circus

0:13:300:13:34

# Don't stand there watching me Follow me, show me what you can do

0:13:340:13:39

# Everybody gonna make it to the Dance floor just like a circus. #

0:13:390:13:43

All I can hear is people breathing.

0:13:430:13:45

But you're going to get that anyway.

0:13:450:13:47

But you can't hear you singing, only breathing.

0:13:470:13:50

The only person I can hear is you.

0:13:500:13:52

THE GIRLS PRACTISE HARMONIES

0:13:520:13:56

Needs work until it's a bit more solid for that bit.

0:13:560:13:59

Sorry, I can't remember my harmony. I don't know what's going on.

0:13:590:14:03

This is Mark and he's offered to help us.

0:14:030:14:06

He really wants to help us.

0:14:060:14:08

We're so privileged to have him on our side and he'll be backing us at the launch.

0:14:080:14:12

# That's where it's true Hey there, Delilah,

0:14:120:14:17

# Don't you worry about the distance

0:14:170:14:19

# I'm right here if you get lonely Give a song... #

0:14:190:14:23

Just making tea or whatever, just sing every day

0:14:230:14:26

because honestly, your voice just gets better and better.

0:14:260:14:29

I love singing when you're on the toilet cos it sounds much better in the bathroom.

0:14:290:14:34

It sounds better in the bathroom. It echoes.

0:14:340:14:36

# Well, since I've come on home Well, my body's been a mess

0:14:360:14:40

# And I miss your ginger hair And the way you like to dress... #

0:14:400:14:45

It takes a while to get strange harmonies embedded in your head

0:14:450:14:52

but once you do you, just practise them and they're great.

0:14:520:14:55

# Some girls like trips really far

0:14:550:14:59

# I'd rather a guy who can play the guitar

0:14:590:15:03

# Ain't it easy. #

0:15:030:15:04

I'm flat.

0:15:040:15:07

It's nice when you're not yelled at.

0:15:070:15:09

See, you can do it in a nice, productive way without screaming and saying you're shit.

0:15:090:15:14

Our outgoings are, like... The dancers alone are costing us like £1,000.

0:15:140:15:19

-No, they're not.

-Yeah, they are.

-Fuck away off.

0:15:190:15:23

They're getting a better wage than us!

0:15:230:15:25

-Me and my fucking mates would have danced.

-You'll get sorted too.

0:15:250:15:28

No, what I'm saying - £1,000 for dancers, are yous nuts?

0:15:280:15:31

I just don't think all of us are being dedicated enough.

0:15:370:15:41

I'm sorry but I don't.

0:15:410:15:42

I was on the phone to Emmanuel, he's like,

0:15:420:15:44

"How's the band coming along? Are yous ready?"

0:15:440:15:46

I was, like, "You having a laugh? We haven't even went through one song."

0:15:460:15:50

He's like, "Your launch is in two weeks.

0:15:500:15:52

"Do you want to stand on stage and look like an eejit and not be prepared?"

0:15:520:15:56

No-one's talking to me about nothing.

0:15:560:15:58

Yous two are blabbing away and know everything and no-one's telling me fuck-all.

0:15:580:16:02

I just find it's probably more my fault

0:16:020:16:06

cos I'm maybe taking too much to do with everything.

0:16:060:16:10

At the minute, I'm just not happy about it.

0:16:100:16:13

We have a launch in two weeks and if we're not ready,

0:16:130:16:16

then I'm not going on stage.

0:16:160:16:18

# Oh oh, I am finding

0:16:180:16:22

# That's not the way I want my story to end. #

0:16:230:16:27

It's nice.

0:16:270:16:28

This is the new Voodoo means of transportation.

0:16:280:16:31

I don't know where it is. What? You're not allowed to go up there.

0:16:310:16:36

She's a completely amazing driver, which is why she's still alive,

0:16:360:16:40

cos did you see the way she drives? It's not even normal.

0:16:400:16:43

# All eyes on me in the centre of The ring just like a circus

0:16:430:16:46

# When I crack that whip Everybody's gonna trip

0:16:460:16:49

# Just like a circus

0:16:490:16:51

# Don't stand there watching me Follow me, show me what you can do

0:16:510:16:55

# Everybody let go we can make the Dance floor just like a circus

0:16:550:16:59

# Ah-ah-ah-ah. #

0:16:590:17:01

-I'm completely traumatised. We've got two weeks and that's it.

-I know. I'm ready to vomit.

0:17:030:17:08

I've asked yous to go over and over and over it.

0:17:080:17:10

-I really have been.

-Is it not good?

-No.

0:17:100:17:13

-What are you going to be like when there's... How many people coming to watch this launch?

-300-plus.

0:17:130:17:18

-I actually feel like a nervous wreck.

-How bad was I?

0:17:180:17:22

Collectively, I was sat going, I'm scundered.

0:17:220:17:26

-I want to talk to yous about a manager.

-I think we need a manager.

0:17:300:17:35

I think there's been a couple of wee things and we're mates

0:17:350:17:38

and it's hard to draw a line in the sand and say, "Look..."

0:17:380:17:41

I find it dead hard and I'm really uncomfortable with it.

0:17:410:17:44

Everyone needs to know exactly and a manager could do that for us.

0:17:440:17:47

-What do yous think?

-Yeah.

0:17:470:17:48

-Who do you think we should talk to about it? Mark?

-Catriona.

0:17:480:17:52

-Fuck, she'd sort you out.

-She'd be alright.

0:17:520:17:55

Catriona really wants to be our manager.

0:17:550:17:57

-Do you think she'd be a good manager? Think she would?

-I do.

0:17:590:18:02

She'd be scary. "Oh, get to rehearsal! Ah!"

0:18:020:18:05

What's her specific role?

0:18:050:18:07

Stylist/promoter/everything.

0:18:070:18:11

-Hello, Cat. You're on loudspeaker and the camera's on, right?

-'Why?'

0:18:110:18:14

-Because we want to ask you something.

-'What are you asking?'

0:18:140:18:18

Voodoo have come to the decision that they need a management team.

0:18:180:18:23

-'Right.'

-And we want you to be part of our management team.

0:18:230:18:26

-Are you happy with that?

-'I'm happy with that, yeah.'

0:18:260:18:29

-Are you sure?

-'Yes.'

-Good cos we love you.

0:18:290:18:32

'Right, this week, we need to get tickets distributed,'

0:18:320:18:35

we need to get the fire-breathers, we need to get the DJ,

0:18:350:18:39

we need to get the photos from JMX to get the PR material, get the press releases out,

0:18:390:18:44

get a dress rehearsal in the venue, we need to meet with Mark, our vocal coach,

0:18:440:18:50

we need to get ourselves up to scratch, get outfits.

0:18:500:18:54

You can have a 50-page list, if you please.

0:18:540:18:56

It's probably going to be easier than wondering what I have to do.

0:18:560:18:59

PIERCING ELECTRICAL SOUND

0:18:590:19:02

Oh, fuck!

0:19:060:19:08

Seriously, you have to stop. That's fucking wild. Jesus Christ, sorry.

0:19:100:19:14

# So what I am a rock star

0:19:140:19:18

# I got my rock moves and I don't need you... #

0:19:180:19:22

Launch at the end of the month in Lavery's

0:19:220:19:24

so, that'll be make or break, I think.

0:19:240:19:27

A lot of people are Voodoo - question mark. What are you all about?

0:19:270:19:31

Come to the launch and see. We're giving it everything.

0:19:310:19:34

We're sleeping and eating and breathing Voodoo.

0:19:340:19:36

# So what I am a rock star

0:19:360:19:40

# I got my rock moves and I don't want you tonight... #

0:19:400:19:46

What I says to Kat the other day, I said to her,

0:19:460:19:48

"I am sick of looking at your two faces."

0:19:480:19:51

She says, "Same here." Everybody's getting that bit fed up.

0:19:510:19:54

MUSIC DROWNS OUT SINGING

0:19:570:20:00

'I just hope that we go somewhere too

0:20:080:20:09

'cos I'm not going to settle for gigging round Belfast

0:20:090:20:14

'for the rest of my life. There's no way.'

0:20:140:20:16

Oh, my God! Two hours!

0:20:220:20:24

There's no silver ribbons on these.

0:20:280:20:30

Don't let dirty people put their dirty feet on that.

0:20:300:20:34

# Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-da-da Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-da-da

0:20:340:20:38

# Ba-ba-ba-da-da-da-da-da. #

0:20:380:20:40

# I'm starting with The man in the mirror

0:20:400:20:44

# I'm asking him to make a change

0:20:440:20:48

# No message could be any clearer

0:20:480:20:52

# If you wanna make the world A better place

0:20:520:20:54

# Take a look at yourself Make a change

0:20:540:20:56

# Gotta get it right While you got the time

0:20:560:20:58

# Ba-ba, ba-ba. #

0:20:580:21:00

There go the false eyelashes.

0:21:000:21:03

Dear God, here we are at Voodoo's first launch.

0:21:030:21:06

The girls have all their friends and team round them to support them

0:21:060:21:10

cos they're all lovely individual girls

0:21:100:21:12

and absolutely wonderful as a band. They're starting off with a great first set.

0:21:120:21:17

Lord, let this be the first of the many wonderful performances. They all deserve it.

0:21:170:21:21

THEY CHEER

0:21:210:21:23

Ladies and gentlemen, give a rapturous round of applause for Voodoo!

0:21:230:21:28

CHEERING

0:21:280:21:31

# Gonna crack that whip Everybody gonna trip

0:21:310:21:34

# Just like a circus

0:21:340:21:35

# Don't stand there watching me Follow me, show me what you can do

0:21:350:21:39

# Everybody let go, We can make the dance floor

0:21:390:21:42

# Just like a circus

0:21:420:21:44

# Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

0:21:440:21:47

# Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. #

0:21:470:21:50

MUSIC: "So What" by Pink

0:21:510:21:54

# Na-na-na-na na-na na

0:21:540:21:57

# Na-na-na-na na-na

0:21:570:21:58

# Na-na-na-na na-na na Na-na-na-na na-na

0:21:580:22:02

# I guess I just lost my husband I don't know where he went

0:22:020:22:05

# So I'm gonna drink his money Not going to pay his rent

0:22:050:22:09

# I got a brand new attitude I'm gonna wear it tonight

0:22:090:22:13

# I'm gonna get in trouble I'm gonna start a fight... #

0:22:130:22:16

'You can't describe the feeling before you go on stage

0:22:160:22:19

'but you have so much adrenaline that if you go wrong, you don't even care.

0:22:190:22:23

'It's really weird and you know you'll pick it up.'

0:22:230:22:26

With the crowd singing along with you,

0:22:260:22:27

sometimes they don't even hear the mistakes.

0:22:270:22:30

As long as you perform to the highest...

0:22:300:22:32

You're not always going to have notes and harmonies perfect,

0:22:320:22:35

not on a first launch night.

0:22:350:22:36

# I think life

0:22:360:22:40

# Is what you make it

0:22:400:22:44

# What's the point

0:22:440:22:48

# Trying to fake it? #

0:22:480:22:52

Thank you so much for all your support, we really appreciate it.

0:22:530:22:57

Look out for Voodoo. Trudy, we haven't forgotten you.

0:22:570:23:00

I know, tonight, I just felt like I came into my own or something.

0:23:000:23:03

I just really went for it, like, and that's all...

0:23:030:23:07

My mummy was in tears - she was, like, "You shone so brightly," like.

0:23:070:23:10

She couldn't believe it. She was like...

0:23:100:23:13

I mean, I've been singing for years and she's heard me.

0:23:130:23:15

She's like, "How many times have I heard you sing?

0:23:150:23:18

"Tonight, that was yours. That's what you were born to do and meant to do.

0:23:180:23:22

"We're behind you and we'll keep going.

0:23:220:23:24

"If you're 50 or 60 or 70, till you get there, like, keep going

0:23:240:23:28

"and we'll support you." I was all filled up and choked up.

0:23:280:23:31

We did it!

0:23:310:23:32

-Let's go get drunk.

-Yeah.

0:23:350:23:37

If people in our own area know us, then that's some support.

0:23:370:23:42

Home-grown support - isn't that how you start, like?

0:23:420:23:45

-First west Belfast, then the world.

-West Belfast, then the gays. We've already got the gays.

0:23:450:23:50

-Love the gays.

-We've got the gays.

0:23:500:23:52

We need the boys now and we'll get the industry.

0:23:520:23:55

Voodoo, Voodoo, Voodoo!

0:24:030:24:06

You're very welcome to the County Down final of the U Factor.

0:24:080:24:13

-I can't get in this.

-Get in!

-I can't.

-She's claustrophobic.

0:24:130:24:18

Give me two seconds, I'll get you upstairs.

0:24:180:24:21

-Vicky.

-I can't, I can't. Seriously.

0:24:210:24:23

Vicky, it's only one wee floor.

0:24:250:24:27

Up next, three young ladies - together they are Voodoo!

0:24:270:24:31

# Then it drops Catches like fire

0:24:380:24:41

# It's a sound of... #

0:24:410:24:42

BOOING AND SHUSHING

0:24:420:24:46

If you can't harmonise, you shouldn't be where you are.

0:24:460:24:48

-Because I do it for a living.

-Come up and do it then!

-I'm a professional. No!

0:24:480:24:52

Carly, don't stoop to their level.

0:24:520:24:54

Love it! Love it!

0:24:540:24:57

-Let go of me, Geraldine. Let go of me!

-Carly, stop.

-Come on outside.

0:24:570:25:01

-I'm going to get her.

-No!

-I am.

0:25:030:25:05

One girl said "sluts", so Carly's annoyed, obviously, so am I,

0:25:070:25:12

but I don't want to let myself down. We're only down to sing.

0:25:120:25:15

It's really bitchy. I wish we had went to the Belfast heat, I think.

0:25:150:25:19

I am only announcing the name of the winner.

0:25:190:25:21

£2,000 for...

0:25:220:25:26

..Una McMullen!

0:25:270:25:29

-We're gutted, to be honest.

-Absolutely gutted.

0:25:290:25:33

It was an audience vote so what can we do?

0:25:330:25:35

-Fair play to yous - you've got a great attitude.

-Thank you.

0:25:350:25:39

Put the song over well. Unfortunate they were beaten by a couple of votes.

0:25:390:25:42

We had three cousins that couldn't make it cos of flu.

0:25:420:25:45

And they come from Belfast, so nobody else can get a word in. Aarrgghh!

0:25:450:25:48

Three votes.

0:25:480:25:49

-Is that hurting?

-You should torture people with this.

0:25:580:26:02

That's only for a set of eyelashes - wait till you're getting Botox.

0:26:020:26:06

You can be an amazing wee singing group

0:26:060:26:07

but you can be in a working man's club singing

0:26:070:26:10

Friday, Saturday, Sunday night.

0:26:100:26:12

To me, that's not - no disrespect to anybody that's doing that -

0:26:120:26:15

but that's not being a success at your craft, like, so hopefully...

0:26:150:26:20

We like to think we're good enough but you just don't know.

0:26:200:26:23

Some days you're so, "What are we doing, where are we going?

0:26:230:26:27

"What's next?" You're banging doors and no-one's answering them

0:26:270:26:30

but we'll keep going, like.

0:26:300:26:33

You know us three, we'll not stop till somebody lets us in.

0:26:330:26:36

Carly, I can't breathe.

0:26:360:26:37

-She's beautiful.

-I'm not, I'm obese.

0:26:390:26:42

The manager's blocked. Is she steaming? Why are you so drunk?

0:26:420:26:48

Have an iced water and then come and meet us.

0:26:490:26:52

Don't forget the CD. I'm going to go and put my shoes on.

0:26:530:26:57

-The clothes, your CD - do you have it?

-Yeah.

0:26:570:26:59

Where's Vicky?

0:26:590:27:01

I forgot about her.

0:27:010:27:03

Manager's blocked and Vicky's went AWOL. We're good.

0:27:030:27:07

-Do you have the CD?

-No. I forgot the CD.

0:27:070:27:10

-Oh, for fuck's sake!

-I forgot.

-I told you twice.

-I'm sorry.

0:27:100:27:14

I knew she'd forget that. She'd forget her head.

0:27:160:27:19

Why do you put me as responsible for stuff? Hello...

0:27:190:27:22

Goes to the shops for accessories and leaves her keys on the accessories stand,

0:27:220:27:26

leaves her handbag in places. Leaves everything, you know?

0:27:260:27:29

She wasn't great with remembering, now she's forgot the CD I asked her to lift twice.

0:27:290:27:33

By the time we get there it'll be 1am. Do you know I've to go to work tomorrow?

0:27:330:27:37

Vicky's not answering to me.

0:27:370:27:39

DJ PLAYS VOODOO SONG

0:27:450:27:47

THEY SCREAM

0:27:540:27:56

We're in the number one hotspot in Belfast at the minute and for them to play our song,

0:28:020:28:08

it's an achievement and we're so proud.

0:28:080:28:11

# Someday you're going to find me

0:28:110:28:14

# Holding on to something That might have been

0:28:140:28:18

# I'm telling you that it's over I need closure. #

0:28:180:28:22

Fed up of being told I'm flat and I'm off.

0:28:220:28:24

I said, "You're never being told whenever you're flat and off."

0:28:240:28:28

I think Kat should be out on her own.

0:28:280:28:30

I don't care. In this industry, you don't need to be the best singer.

0:28:300:28:34

We've said that every time. You don't.

0:28:340:28:36

You know, after the anger and hurt and all that's died down,

0:28:360:28:39

we're back to the beginning again.
