It wasn't great, it was not great at all.

0:00:040:00:06

I can't keep blaming the fucking sound guy.

0:00:060:00:09

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

0:00:100:00:13

"I'm sick of looking at your two faces."

0:00:130:00:16

I like to change my hair with my mood.

0:00:160:00:18

My hair's fucking blue! I have blue hair!

0:00:180:00:21

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

0:00:210:00:24

# I need closure

0:00:240:00:26

# I need closure... #

0:00:260:00:28

You create the hype, you don't believe the hype.

0:00:280:00:31

'Well, this is where we held the first auditions for Voodoo.

0:00:400:00:43

'This is where Carly and Vicky came.'

0:00:430:00:46

Can't believe we're back here again.

0:00:460:00:48

I wanted us all to sit down and talk.

0:00:480:00:51

The first thing I did was ring her and say to her,

0:00:510:00:53

you need to speak to Vicky.

0:00:530:00:54

And she rang and...

0:00:540:00:56

..she didn't want to meet, did she?

0:00:570:00:59

She said she wasn't coming back.

0:00:590:01:01

She said she was leaving, that was it.

0:01:010:01:04

She wasn't going to go back on her word.

0:01:040:01:07

It was constant in my face, "You're flat, you're off."

0:01:070:01:10

I said that, I said that to Kat.

0:01:100:01:12

Here's me, "I'm fed up being told I'm flat, I'm off."

0:01:120:01:15

I says to her, "You're never told when you're flat and you're off."

0:01:150:01:18

And she was, like, "I know." I'm just not taking it no more.

0:01:180:01:21

I am happy with the decision I've made and I've left, and that's it,

0:01:210:01:25

and I'm really happy and excited to know what comes next.

0:01:250:01:28

I don't know. I'm gutted, like. I feel like an eejit.

0:01:290:01:33

Everybody's like, "Oh, how's the band going, what's the craic?"

0:01:330:01:36

You're like, "Mmm, we lost a member."

0:01:360:01:39

Vicky, see, to be honest, see why I'm ringing you?

0:01:390:01:42

It's basically...we've auditioned and kind of got someone

0:01:420:01:47

that's ready to move in, to join the band, like.

0:01:470:01:50

But I wanted to talk to you. Are you sure this is what you want?

0:01:500:01:53

-You're gone, are you?

-'Yes, yes, I'm away.'

0:01:530:01:57

Hi.

0:01:570:01:58

INDISTINCT SPEECH OVER PHONE

0:01:580:02:00

'..I hope everything does do well, and I know Voodoo will do well.

0:02:000:02:04

'It's sad that things left on bad terms,

0:02:040:02:06

'things were said in the spur of the moment.

0:02:060:02:08

'I can't take nothing back now.'

0:02:080:02:10

All right, no problem, take care of yourself.

0:02:100:02:12

-'You too. Bye.'

-Bye.

0:02:120:02:15

Are you still there?

0:02:150:02:17

Just doesn't give a fuck.

0:02:200:02:22

Well, that's it, she doesn't care. At least it was...

0:02:220:02:25

At least that's closure, I suppose.

0:02:250:02:28

How did I hold myself together there? My anger.

0:02:280:02:31

-What did you say to her?

-Wait, she's away upset.

0:02:310:02:33

You heard her. "I don't care, that's what I want, I'm happy, I'm far happier."

0:02:370:02:41

That's it now. We just need to get a new member now.

0:02:410:02:46

Ten to three. Not one person showed up.

0:02:460:02:48

Vicky's broke my heart.

0:02:480:02:50

-Take it to the streets.

-Let's take this shit to the streets.

0:02:500:02:54

Toast to a new start. Love yous. Katriona.

0:03:040:03:07

'I think somebody who's 6ft 10,'

0:03:070:03:08

-long, blonde hair to her bottom. All her own.

-Nice.

0:03:080:03:11

-Orange face.

-Not orange, my love.

0:03:110:03:14

-Tanned.

-Tanned.

0:03:140:03:16

But great singing voice, great personality, hard-working.

0:03:160:03:21

We're a girl band currently out scouting for our third member.

0:03:210:03:25

-Preferably blonde, that's why we've stopped yourself. Can you sing?

-No!

0:03:250:03:29

This is going to be much harder than we first anticipated.

0:03:290:03:33

Well, well, where are our blondies?

0:03:340:03:36

-Can you remotely sing?

-Remotely.

0:03:390:03:41

-Jennifer, your sister, Hannah, can.

-Yeah, my sister.

0:03:410:03:44

-Is she blonde?

-Yeah, really tall, pretty.

-Yeah!

0:03:440:03:46

What age is she, though?

0:03:460:03:48

-17.

-Oh.

0:03:480:03:50

-Can you sing at all?

-Yes.

-Yeah!

0:03:500:03:52

-Do you want to give us a wee proof...?

-No, I'm definitely not singing.

0:03:520:03:56

She's not allowed to come out, her manager's strict,

0:03:560:03:58

but she wants us to come back when she finishes work.

0:03:580:04:01

Her name is Sarah, and she's tall, taller than me.

0:04:010:04:03

She says she wasn't an amazing singer, but then neither am I.

0:04:030:04:07

We've got her number, she wants to audition. She's called Sarah.

0:04:070:04:11

'I'm Simon Cowell.'

0:04:130:04:15

'Can I be Cheryl? I'll be Cheryl.'

0:04:150:04:17

-Can you be Dannii? I don't like her.

-I don't want to be Dannii - she's as dull as dishwater.

0:04:170:04:22

I'll be Louis.

0:04:220:04:23

-Hi! Come on in. How are you?

-Very good.

0:04:230:04:27

-Thank you for coming. How are you?

-Nice to meet you.

0:04:270:04:30

You have the right look, the look's there. Me and Kat...

0:04:300:04:33

I think I nearly choked in River Island when you were putting clothes away!

0:04:330:04:38

I know how intimidating it is - sometimes when you're nervous, you don't perform to your best.

0:04:380:04:42

-So we'll take that into account.

-Don't worry.

0:04:420:04:45

Just as long as you have a voice.

0:04:450:04:47

# Since I've come on home

0:04:470:04:49

# Well, my body's been a mess

0:04:490:04:52

# And I miss your ginger hair

0:04:520:04:54

# And the way you like to dress

0:04:540:04:57

# Why don't you come on over

0:04:570:04:59

# And stop making a fool out of me?

0:04:590:05:03

# Why don't you come on over Valerie? #

0:05:030:05:07

Woo!

0:05:070:05:08

I'd really like to be a part of their band.

0:05:080:05:11

So, hopefully, they'll pick me!

0:05:110:05:14

-She's no singer.

-She can't sing, like.

0:05:140:05:17

No, not she's no singer, she's not a solo singer.

0:05:170:05:20

But when we all sing, it's not as if she's fucking tone-deaf.

0:05:200:05:23

Bring a wee girl in like that that can do the harmonies,

0:05:230:05:26

take the low harmonies and isn't looking to fucking take over.

0:05:260:05:29

Then, I think you've got a good fit there, Carly.

0:05:290:05:32

I don't care. You don't need to be the best singer in the world.

0:05:320:05:35

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

0:05:350:05:37

It's not what you know, it's who you know.

0:05:370:05:39

-Right, do you want to ring her and tell her she's got it now?

-No, no.

0:05:390:05:43

-What if Sarah comes and she's 20 times better?

-She's not answering her phone.

0:05:430:05:47

-Let her wait tomorrow.

-Don't be evil. Why don't we feel the love?

0:05:470:05:51

-No, feel the love tomorrow.

-Let her!

0:05:510:05:53

She'll be more excited when she finds out tomorrow.

0:05:530:05:56

It'll look like you're too keen if you phone her now.

0:05:560:06:00

We're really, really happy. We absolutely loved you.

0:06:000:06:03

And, um, if you're happy, we're happy.

0:06:030:06:07

If you'd like to join Voodoo, we'd be delighted.

0:06:070:06:10

-It just...

-Feels right.

-It does.

0:06:100:06:12

I'm all about karma and feelings, and I liked that girl when we met her.

0:06:120:06:16

# She's got an orange face

0:06:220:06:24

# False hair to her waist

0:06:240:06:26

# Dreams of being on TV

0:06:260:06:29

# She's got a Fendi bag From her time as a WAG

0:06:290:06:32

# Back in 2003... #

0:06:320:06:36

I actually want you to look quite, sort of, like rag dolls, almost.

0:06:360:06:41

Edgy rag dolls.

0:06:410:06:42

-Kat, they're amazing.

-Do you like those?

0:06:530:06:56

-Yes.

-You have a really edgy look.

0:06:560:06:58

I think they're a little bit different to your normal girly band,

0:07:030:07:06

which is sort of bubblegum pop.

0:07:060:07:08

They're more edgy and a little bit more unique.

0:07:080:07:12

Chin up a little bit.

0:07:120:07:13

This is the part that I'm probably not most comfortable with, out of everything.

0:07:130:07:18

You know me, I'm a singer, I just want to sing,

0:07:180:07:21

so this part's totally new to me and very different.

0:07:210:07:24

You two look amazing, and I look disgusting.

0:07:240:07:26

I'm the size of a lemon.

0:07:260:07:28

You can't film this shit.

0:07:290:07:32

This is our lovely wee band, XXX. Say hi.

0:07:380:07:42

We had our own band going.

0:07:420:07:43

Still have, as such.

0:07:430:07:46

But we came in to help the girls out, anyway,

0:07:460:07:50

and see what comes out of it at the end of the day.

0:07:500:07:52

# Welcome to the life of a wannabe

0:08:010:08:04

# Oh-h-h

0:08:040:08:06

# One thing I'd love to be... #

0:08:060:08:09

'I'm feeling the pressure, because I've been asked about 100 times

0:08:090:08:12

'for demos for gigs and different things.'

0:08:120:08:14

I'm running about speaking to people and they're like, "Give me a demo."

0:08:140:08:18

And the demos we have have Vicky's vocals on them,

0:08:180:08:21

so they're obviously no good.

0:08:210:08:23

And Voodoo has a totally different sound now.

0:08:230:08:26

# I don't feel a thing

0:08:260:08:29

# I don't feel a thing... #

0:08:290:08:33

It sounds like fuck all, like.

0:08:370:08:39

And you know how good that was sounding.

0:08:390:08:41

-We have to just rearrange it, then.

-It needs rearranged, I think.

0:08:410:08:46

-Why are you scared?

-I'll tell you later.

0:08:460:08:49

-Tell me now. Because of Sarah?

-(Yeah.)

0:08:500:08:54

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

0:08:570:09:00

it's like we're back to the beginning again.

0:09:000:09:02

# Water's running in the wrong direction

0:09:050:09:09

# I got a feeling it's a mixed-up time... #

0:09:090:09:12

'Big ideas of what they're going to do,

0:09:120:09:15

'and I don't know if that'll work or not.'

0:09:150:09:17

I think they just need a bit more experience of what they're doing.

0:09:170:09:20

I think they know that themselves.

0:09:200:09:22

But if they write their own songs, which they have,

0:09:220:09:25

they've as good a chance as anybody of making it.

0:09:250:09:28

I still think they need to concentrate a lot on their vocals.

0:09:280:09:32

'Because they've been together from the start'

0:09:390:09:41

and they're obviously best friends now,

0:09:410:09:44

it's a bit weird trying to fit into that.

0:09:440:09:46

'They were saying Vicky had an amazing voice,'

0:09:460:09:49

but she didn't know how to harmonise or work together with the band.

0:09:490:09:52

I don't have a strong voice, but I know how to harmonise and I can work with the band.

0:09:520:09:56

'I think that's the difference.'

0:09:560:09:58

# Let's just get back together

0:09:580:10:00

# We should've never have broke up

0:10:000:10:02

# You're telling me That my heart won't beat again... #

0:10:020:10:06

# That's me in the spotlight

0:10:130:10:17

# Losing my religion... #

0:10:170:10:19

Kat, she's a great songwriter - the songs that she's written are really good.

0:10:210:10:25

'They maybe need a wee bit more in them, or something like that.'

0:10:250:10:30

They maybe need expanded a bit more.

0:10:300:10:33

But the songs are excellent.

0:10:330:10:35

You have to play for the enjoyment of it, because there's not much to be made out of it.

0:10:400:10:44

Unless you really hit the big time, which you're not likely to do.

0:10:440:10:49

'Two, two, one, two. One, two.

0:10:560:10:59

'One, two, one, two.'

0:10:590:11:01

Is the mix a wee bit loud?

0:11:010:11:03

Try not to sing too loudly into the mic

0:11:030:11:06

and just sing at the same level as me,

0:11:060:11:09

so I'm not trying to have to shout over the top of you.

0:11:090:11:13

You know how loud you have to sing.

0:11:130:11:15

You're going to have to dance a wee bit more.

0:11:150:11:17

I was more concerned about the vocals.

0:11:170:11:19

# It's so filthy... #

0:11:190:11:23

What way are we doing that leg-up thing, so we don't look like three wallies?

0:11:240:11:28

-I'll just go...

-What do we do with our mics?

0:11:280:11:32

Give it up for Voodoo!

0:11:320:11:34

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:11:340:11:37

This is an original.

0:11:380:11:39

It'll be on iTunes in about four weeks from now,

0:11:390:11:41

so get downloading. I hope you like it.

0:11:410:11:44

# Welcome to the life of a wannabe

0:11:440:11:47

# Oh, it doesn't come for free

0:11:470:11:50

# Welcome to the life of a wannabe

0:11:500:11:54

# It's so filthy. #

0:11:540:11:59

APPLAUSE

0:11:590:12:02

'Well, this is my wee gym, Brook Activity Centre,'

0:12:120:12:15

which is the local gym in Twinbrook, in the heart of the West.

0:12:150:12:19

This is where I come to do all my training.

0:12:190:12:21

Ugh!

0:12:290:12:31

Ah!

0:12:310:12:33

Oh, Jesus!

0:12:330:12:34

I'm so unfit.

0:12:340:12:37

I was noticing just, like, a lump. It was really, really small.

0:12:410:12:46

You know the way you kind of push things to the side?

0:12:460:12:49

It just got bigger and bigger and bigger.

0:12:490:12:51

And then my mum was freaking out, so I went to see the doctor.

0:12:510:12:55

And the doctor was, like, you need to get that checked out ASAP.

0:12:550:12:58

She put the fear of God in me, like.

0:12:580:12:59

It's actually just right below my vocal chords,

0:12:590:13:03

but it's got that big now, it's kind of rubbing on them.

0:13:030:13:07

You probably heard the other night, my voice gets to a certain point and breaks.

0:13:070:13:10

That's cos of that.

0:13:100:13:12

But it does need to come out, cos it's on my thyroid gland.

0:13:120:13:15

I shouldn't be running about with it, but I'm just putting it off.

0:13:150:13:19

I have to believe, I definitely do believe.

0:13:190:13:22

I think we're like a rough diamond.

0:13:220:13:24

We need so much work. So, so much.

0:13:240:13:27

I don't think we're amazing and fantastic, but...

0:13:270:13:30

..I think we're good enough, I do.

0:13:320:13:34

So, I just need to lose 10 stone, we need to get somebody to sign us

0:13:340:13:40

and have a number one

0:13:400:13:42

and all go off to live in London in penthouses and stuff.

0:13:420:13:45

That's the plan.

0:13:450:13:46

MALE VOICE SINGS

0:13:460:13:48

Do the harmony again.

0:13:480:13:50

-Hello, there.

-Thanks for coming down.

-Nice to meet you.

0:13:560:13:59

So, before I start giving any advice, I need to find out more.

0:13:590:14:02

-It'd be good to hear what you're doing.

-Come in, have a nosey.

0:14:020:14:05

I ended up in London in the music business for a few years as a buyer

0:14:050:14:09

for a large chunk of the record business.

0:14:090:14:11

Then came back here, worked for a lot of record companies,

0:14:110:14:14

mainly independents, couple of majors.

0:14:140:14:16

# She's just a girl with a sad ambition

0:14:160:14:20

# Getting ahead is a dirty mission

0:14:200:14:23

# Welcome to the life of a wannabe

0:14:230:14:27

# Oh, it doesn't come for free... #

0:14:270:14:31

-Do you know what music you're trying to make?

-No. Voodoo music.

0:14:310:14:35

Music for the soul. I don't know.

0:14:350:14:38

Cos the three of us are very different, we bring...

0:14:380:14:42

Although I do all the writing and stuff, you know...

0:14:420:14:45

It has to sell, doesn't it? It has to be commercial, people need to get it.

0:14:450:14:49

The sort of music market you're subconsciously trying to head towards is a very commercial one.

0:14:490:14:56

Usually there's hundreds of people involved in the whole process of creating a record.

0:14:560:15:01

So, you need to firmly decide what it is you want to be.

0:15:010:15:06

The other thing that would be pertinent to ask is, have any of you had vocal coaching?

0:15:060:15:10

-I have.

-You've had vocal coaching?

0:15:100:15:13

-Do you still continue?

-We did for a while.

0:15:130:15:17

It helped me out, because I'm good with the harmonies and everything.

0:15:170:15:20

But I don't really feel the benefit a lot.

0:15:200:15:24

What you're aiming for, to do it from Belfast, is way down the line and is very ambitious.

0:15:240:15:29

-But I wish you well.

-We are ambitious.

-I wish you well.

0:15:290:15:32

You need to want it, you need to want to be working two or three nights a week.

0:15:320:15:36

And buying lots of music and seeing how it's been made,

0:15:360:15:40

begin to understand the recording process.

0:15:400:15:42

You won't be filming in three weeks, and they've got a record deal.

0:15:420:15:45

That's not going to happen here.

0:15:450:15:48

But if they can get to the next stage and hone their skills.

0:15:480:15:52

If there's six songs with a hook, at least they can give it a go

0:15:520:15:55

to get to the first stage, get to first base.

0:15:550:15:57

Complimented my music, so I can't really say...

0:15:570:16:01

Cos he was very straight - he's not one of these people to blow wind up your ass.

0:16:010:16:06

If the songs hadn't been hooky, he'd have told us.

0:16:060:16:08

He wasn't completely negative, he had some good things to say.

0:16:080:16:12

He didn't even say he thought we were good or had the potential to go for it.

0:16:120:16:15

-He didn't really give us any criticism.

-That's why I feel...

0:16:150:16:21

Yeah, he didn't say you have a good look or a good sound. He just said one of the songs was catchy.

0:16:210:16:28

Sheena writes lyrics, and I would never take that away from her, she's brilliant.

0:16:280:16:31

But there's three of us and we all work hard.

0:16:310:16:34

And I don't like that he concentrated maybe on one person.

0:16:340:16:37

He could've spoken to us all. It was rude.

0:16:370:16:39

We're putting the guys under pressure, we're hoping to bang out three songs in 30 minutes!

0:16:490:16:55

No, we're just going to get on and if we even got two nice songs, we'd be happy, wouldn't we?

0:16:550:17:00

I'm nervous about today, I've never done it before.

0:17:030:17:06

And I've got a really bad cough, that doesn't help!

0:17:060:17:09

The best thing about the studio is you can listen to your voice and know when you went wrong.

0:17:090:17:14

The sound technician's very good.

0:17:140:17:16

We do it ourselves first, and everyone's like, "Oh, my God, it sounds so shit."

0:17:160:17:20

But everyone sounds shit sometimes.

0:17:200:17:22

MUSIC PLAYS

0:17:220:17:23

Does he know what song we're doing?

0:17:230:17:25

Thomas - Good Girl.

0:17:250:17:27

# See this girl She's dancing on the bar

0:17:270:17:32

# Hold her close She might just be a star. #

0:17:320:17:34

I don't know how the fuck I'll sing this, cos the bits I'm singing,

0:17:340:17:38

whenever I go to sing, it stops again.

0:17:380:17:40

My head's away. Right, anyway.

0:17:400:17:42

-# Don't get me wrong... #

-SHE SCREAMS

0:17:420:17:46

-It sounds great.

-I'm sorry. I can't sing it, you may sing it.

-No.

0:17:460:17:49

-Sing it.

-No, keep going.

0:17:490:17:51

# I'm a good girl really Only when I'm sleeping. #

0:17:510:17:56

-She's really nervous.

-What do I do in that bit?

0:17:560:17:59

-ALL:

-# Only when I'm sleeping Only when I'm sleeping. #

0:17:590:18:03

-You need to come in...

-# Don't try and judge me... #

0:18:030:18:06

You need to come in straightaway.

0:18:060:18:08

But come in previous to that on the last line of the first verse.

0:18:080:18:12

# I love when they pretend not to stare

0:18:120:18:15

# But don't try and judge me

0:18:150:18:18

# It's a statement, not a dare

0:18:180:18:21

# I'm that kind of woman who does her hair to match her underwear. #

0:18:210:18:27

Sorry, love, you're not singing, you need to sing.

0:18:270:18:31

# Don't try and judge me. #

0:18:310:18:33

You're still not singing, Sarah.

0:18:330:18:35

-Just give me a minute!

-Are you OK?

-She's crying.

0:18:350:18:39

She's crying and everything.

0:18:390:18:41

Babes, I'm not shouting at you, I'm just saying you need to sing.

0:18:410:18:44

Come here.

0:18:440:18:46

Take a deep breath. It's all very new.

0:18:490:18:51

You've only trailed in a couple of weeks ago.

0:18:510:18:54

-She's just nervous.

-Aye, that's it. Easy done.

0:18:540:18:57

Sarah, I'm going to sing "Don't..."

0:18:570:19:00

before you come in, so you can get your note right.

0:19:000:19:02

# I love when they pretend not to stare

0:19:020:19:06

# Don't try and judge me

0:19:060:19:09

# It's a statement, not a dare. #

0:19:090:19:11

When it comes to recording, you're so naked and exposed,

0:19:110:19:14

if you don't have that confidence to say,

0:19:140:19:17

"I am good enough," you can just fall to pieces. It's very hard.

0:19:170:19:20

We just need to build Sarah's confidence up a bit

0:19:200:19:23

and we'll be flying.

0:19:230:19:25

-Are you OK, love?

-Yeah.

-I wasn't shouting at you.

0:19:250:19:29

'The more I did it, it was coming a bit easier. It was when I kept doing it wrong,'

0:19:290:19:34

and the girls were getting a bit annoyed with me, and it was kind of "Oh"

0:19:340:19:38

and it just all got to me.

0:19:380:19:40

But it's my first time, so it'll just get better.

0:19:400:19:42

It sounds good all mixed together.

0:19:420:19:44

But they've just kind of put my voice down to the minimum!

0:19:440:19:49

# Happy birthday dear Katrina

0:19:560:19:59

# Happy birthday to you! #

0:19:590:20:03

CHEERING

0:20:030:20:06

Ready for number one...! CHEERING

0:20:060:20:10

# You don't have to fear me

0:20:250:20:28

# It's a rule I'm always keeping...#

0:20:280:20:31

# I'm a good girl really

0:20:310:20:34

# Only when I'm sleeping

0:20:340:20:37

# Only when I'm sleeping! #

0:20:370:20:39

I've done a fair bit of partying these past couple of days.

0:20:470:20:49

We're really wrecked.

0:20:490:20:51

Sarah's in the clothes she was wearing partying last night.

0:20:510:20:54

-Katriona's up there fixing her.

-I had half an hour's sleep last night.

0:20:540:20:57

Then I was up for colleague at nine.

0:20:570:21:00

Then I got out of colleague at half three,

0:21:000:21:02

was in work four to eight and came straight here.

0:21:020:21:06

I'm actually like, urgh!

0:21:060:21:08

# A quarter past September and I roll out of bed

0:21:080:21:12

# I've got a brass band percussion thumping tunes in my head

0:21:120:21:15

# An invisible friend whispering once in my ear

0:21:150:21:18

# You'd feel so much better if you'd just have a beer. #

0:21:180:21:20

At the minute, they're not blending,

0:21:200:21:23

you know. I think Kat is very strong,

0:21:230:21:27

but she can use a lot more of her range.

0:21:270:21:29

She can go higher than she realises. She likes to keep her voice down.

0:21:290:21:34

I, personally, think that Kat should be out on her own.

0:21:370:21:40

She has a great stage presence for what she wants -

0:21:400:21:44

she wants to portray that rock kind of look.

0:21:440:21:48

It's so clear when you're watching them on stage

0:21:480:21:51

that she is the one that is there doing that so naturally.

0:21:510:21:57

The other two girls have to work at it.

0:21:570:22:00

But I do understand why they want to be a band. We're fun.

0:22:000:22:05

-What did Pauline say? I should leave?

-Yeah.

-I know.

0:22:050:22:09

At the end of the day, if I wanted to be on my own,

0:22:090:22:13

I would have started out on my own. Do you know what I mean?

0:22:130:22:17

I do hope to God that my future's with them, you know what I mean?

0:22:170:22:22

I don't really want to do it on my own.

0:22:220:22:24

Too many people, I'd say, have too many opinions.

0:22:240:22:28

We'll have to watch each other's backs, because we'll get people...

0:22:280:22:31

Sure everybody thinks I'm not fucking singing! I couldn't care less!

0:22:310:22:35

Although Sarah's 18, she sees the bigger picture.

0:22:350:22:38

She's saying to herself, "At the end of the day, I'm in a pretty cool band

0:22:380:22:42

"who's got a lot of stuff going for them."

0:22:420:22:44

She's happy enough to... She's knows her place and is as happy as Larry.

0:22:440:22:48

All three of us, we're happy like that.

0:22:480:22:51

That's when we can relax and accept what we're about.

0:22:510:22:57

There's no more replacing, we're not the Sugababes.

0:23:080:23:11

I think if either me or Carly decide to throw the towel in,

0:23:110:23:15

they'd be no more replacing, and that would be that.

0:23:150:23:18

# ..Would you lie with me

0:23:180:23:20

# And just forget the world?

0:23:200:23:24

# Forget what we're told

0:23:250:23:27

# Before we get too old. #

0:23:290:23:32

-A real-life ostrich had to get plucked for this.

-Ew!

0:23:420:23:47

It didn't die, at least!

0:23:470:23:48

# Come here, rude boy, boy Can you get it up?

0:23:490:23:53

# Come here, rude boy, boy Is you big enough? #

0:23:530:23:55

What you're gonna do, you're gonna hear the truck go

0:23:550:23:57

and look directly into the camera and sing away.

0:23:570:24:01

It's gonna take a while, a few takes from beginning to end.

0:24:010:24:05

# I'm a good girl really

0:24:050:24:08

# Only when I'm sleeping

0:24:080:24:10

# Only when I'm sleeping. #

0:24:100:24:12

Look into the camera.

0:24:120:24:14

Where's the models? I'm traumatised.

0:24:140:24:16

People just came...with my brother and she came and left.

0:24:160:24:19

"Ring to get in." What? What the fuck do you ring to get in, a bell?

0:24:190:24:22

They didn't leave a cow bell or something?

0:24:220:24:25

-Excuse me?

-What's it for?

0:24:260:24:28

You just need to sit in the audience

0:24:280:24:31

and pretend you're part of the fashion show.

0:24:310:24:33

If you can find anybody else, bring them as well.

0:24:330:24:36

Thank you so much, girls. That's us more or less sorted.

0:24:360:24:39

# A quarter past September and I roll out of bed

0:24:450:24:48

# I've got a brass band percussion thumping tunes in my head

0:24:480:24:51

# An invisible friend whispering once in my ear

0:24:510:24:54

# You'd feel so much better if you'd just have a beer. #

0:24:540:24:57

DJ's here with me, and the socialites sing with Carly and wee Lauren and all.

0:24:570:25:02

Then...a prostitute scene on a main road, and that's it.

0:25:020:25:07

She's called you over. Right. And all of a sudden, there's no sign.

0:25:070:25:11

He's gonna get down and try and fix it, and I'm gonna get all that down there -

0:25:110:25:17

it looks like he's doing dirty things to me.

0:25:170:25:20

And it's Carly's boyfriend, so I feel like a nob!

0:25:230:25:26

-I am mortified.

-You're the one that wanted the shot. Now, come on. Here!

0:25:280:25:33

Kat, Kat, it's either going to look really cool or really stupid.

0:25:330:25:37

-It could be worse - it could be Ricky doing it.

-Give me that face.

0:25:370:25:39

Mouth open. Loving it.

0:25:390:25:41

Count to three and then walk into the window.

0:25:410:25:44

I'm the model coming off the runway and I'm walking out of the club

0:25:440:25:47

and then I go to get a lift, but there's prostitutes in the background,

0:25:470:25:51

so it looks as if I'm prostituting myself.

0:25:510:25:55

Can I just see your legs open, a wee bit open. Jesus!

0:25:550:25:59

-It's OK, just a bit higher again. OK, guys, that's a wrap!

-Yay!

0:25:590:26:04

Well done, everybody. Woo-hoo!

0:26:040:26:06

I love all that, but because it was Carly's boyfriend... No! I don't love all that! No!

0:26:060:26:11

No, I love the craic.

0:26:130:26:15

It's exactly what it was!

0:26:150:26:17

We're so excited - shall we watch it now?

0:26:230:26:25

Yeah, but don't show me... I feel sick, I'm so excited.

0:26:250:26:29

I know this is what we said at the start, we wanted a music video.

0:26:290:26:32

Now we'll have one and now we're scared.

0:26:320:26:35

-Let's watch it.

-Yes.

-Let's do it.

0:26:360:26:39

0:27:320:27:36

-I look ugly on camera.

-I'm rough as...

0:27:360:27:38

I look like I have a skin disease. Like a egghead.

0:27:380:27:43

-I think yous look lovely.

-You look gorgeous. You're nuts.

0:27:430:27:47

I feel really emotional.

0:27:470:27:50

This time last year, we were saying we wanted to get a music video.

0:27:500:27:53

We didn't think we'd get there and we have one now.

0:27:530:27:55

-It's really overwhelming.

-It's really well put together.

0:27:550:27:59

-They've made such a good job on it.

-They've done a brilliant job, I'm so delighted.

0:27:590:28:04

-I feel like crying, I'm so... I dunno.

-It's awesome.

0:28:040:28:08

-I'm so excited, I'm so proud of us. High-five.

-High-five.

0:28:080:28:13

I think that makes us a bit more credible now.

0:28:130:28:16

When you see that we look polished.

0:28:160:28:19

That's the end product of the crazy, crazy year of hard work.

0:28:190:28:23

-Me and the girls know we have a long way to go.

-Absolutely.

0:28:230:28:26

But I couldn't be happier.

0:28:260:28:29

-Watch this space, Voodoo!

-Yeah.

They've got the looks, the moves and the determination, but have they got what it really takes to hit the big time? This two-part documentary series follows the amazing exploits of Belfast girl-band Voodoo as they attempt to turn their dreams of fame and fortune into reality.
