Comic Relief Does Glee Club is back!

0:00:020:00:03

This year's all-singing and all-dancing musical extravaganza

0:00:030:00:06

promises to be bigger and better than ever.

0:00:060:00:08

Hundreds of hopefuls from across the UK

0:00:080:00:11

will dance and sing their hearts out.

0:00:110:00:12

Last year, The Real Deal took the title,

0:00:120:00:15

but now it's time to find a new winner.

0:00:150:00:17

This is Comic Relief Does Glee Club 2013.

0:00:170:00:20

Hello and welcome to Comic Relief Does Glee Club.

0:00:390:00:43

Yes, we are back with a brand-new series

0:00:430:00:46

to find the UK's best young glee club,

0:00:460:00:48

and all in the name of Comic Relief.

0:00:480:00:50

Last autumn, we travelled all over the country

0:00:500:00:53

to find the most talented young singing and dancing groups

0:00:530:00:56

the UK has to offer.

0:00:560:00:58

The top 24 acts were then invited to perform at the judges' auditions,

0:00:580:01:02

and with only 15 places up for grabs in the studio heats,

0:01:020:01:06

the pressure was on.

0:01:060:01:08

But before that, let's take a look at where our Glee Club journey took us.

0:01:080:01:11

Naomi, and this year's new judge, John Modi,

0:01:170:01:20

travelled all over the country

0:01:200:01:22

in their quest to bring you the best glee clubs Britain has to offer.

0:01:220:01:25

# Cos we are living in a material world... #

0:01:250:01:29

Their journey started in Newcastle,

0:01:290:01:31

where they checked out the North East's performing talent...

0:01:310:01:34

# I'm on the right track, baby, I was born this way... #

0:01:340:01:38

..before heading across the water to Belfast.

0:01:380:01:41

ALL: One, two, three.

0:01:410:01:43

# Annie, are you OK? Will you tell us that you're OK? #

0:01:430:01:46

Today, we're in Glasgow!

0:01:460:01:50

Next stop was Glasgow, with Scottish groups determined to impress John

0:01:500:01:54

with more show-stopping performances.

0:01:540:01:56

You're excited that we're finding talent in Glasgow.

0:01:560:01:59

I'm very excited about Glasgow. Love it.

0:01:590:02:01

The search continued south of the border in sunny Manchester,

0:02:010:02:04

with more groups giving it their all.

0:02:040:02:07

-# You can't stop

-# You can't stop... #

0:02:070:02:10

Cardiff was next on the hit list to find more top acts,

0:02:100:02:13

before finally heading to the Big Smoke - London...

0:02:130:02:16

There's a whole hive of activity out here.

0:02:160:02:19

..where they saw even more amazing talent.

0:02:190:02:21

Lol.

0:02:210:02:24

The standard on the tour was incredible,

0:02:240:02:26

but it was down to John to select the top 24 glee clubs

0:02:260:02:29

that would perform again here at the judges' auditions.

0:02:290:02:33

Now, you may be wondering where Sam and Mark are. Well, don't worry -

0:02:400:02:44

they will be here for the studio heats in a few days' time.

0:02:440:02:47

However, I am pleased to say that our resident judges are back.

0:02:470:02:51

As usual, they'll be keeping a close eye on the proceedings

0:02:510:02:54

and making those all-important decisions.

0:02:540:02:56

So let's meet the people who will be deciding the fate of our groups,

0:02:560:03:00

and some very special guests.

0:03:000:03:02

Carrie and David are two of the UK's best-known celebrity vocal coaches.

0:03:080:03:13

-That was really good. I love your energy.

-Breathtaking.

0:03:130:03:16

They've worked with a whole host of pop artists,

0:03:160:03:18

from the Spice Girls and Take That to The Saturdays.

0:03:180:03:21

Celebrity vocal and performance coach John

0:03:210:03:23

has worked with a variety of stars,

0:03:230:03:25

from Leona Lewis to Olly Murs and Alexandra Burke.

0:03:250:03:28

He has also worked behind-the-scenes on top shows

0:03:280:03:31

like The Voice and X Factor.

0:03:310:03:33

Offering additional advice to the groups will be...

0:03:330:03:36

West End star and X Factor winner Joe McElderry.

0:03:360:03:39

He's recorded four albums and his debut single, The Climb,

0:03:390:03:42

topped the UK charts.

0:03:420:03:44

Soul singer and presenter Dionne Bromfield -

0:03:440:03:47

she's been nominated for a MOBO Award, has recorded two albums

0:03:470:03:51

and finds time to present CBBC's Friday Download.

0:03:510:03:55

And X Factor finalist and television presenter Stacey Solomon -

0:03:550:03:59

not only has she wowed audiences with her voice,

0:03:590:04:02

she is also a regular star on our TV screens.

0:04:020:04:06

OK, this is the serious bit. Serious face.

0:04:100:04:14

Over the next three shows,

0:04:140:04:15

our judges will be deciding which acts they want to see again.

0:04:150:04:19

The top 15 acts will then perform right here on this stage

0:04:190:04:23

in front of a live audience in the studio heats.

0:04:230:04:26

The five groups with the highest scores across the heats

0:04:260:04:29

will then compete in the live finals where you at home

0:04:290:04:32

get to decide who will be crowned

0:04:320:04:34

Comic Relief Does Glee Club winners 2013.

0:04:340:04:37

It's as simple as that.

0:04:370:04:39

Right, we have eight glee clubs to see in this show,

0:04:390:04:42

so let's meet the first group.

0:04:420:04:44

One, two, three.

0:04:550:04:57

-# Tingle... #

-ALL: Oh!

0:04:570:04:59

Oh, yeah, I remember these guys. M.A.D - mad.

0:04:590:05:03

Yeah. They are, in many ways, very good that way.

0:05:030:05:07

ALL: Go, Aisha! Go, Aisha!

0:05:070:05:09

Have you got any issues today, anything you're worrying about,

0:05:090:05:12

anything that has not gone quite to plan so far?

0:05:120:05:15

-I'm losing my voice.

-Yeah, Aisha's losing her voice.

0:05:150:05:17

-You're losing your voice? You're a soloist?

-A big part in it as well.

0:05:170:05:21

Is this because you've been talking too much?

0:05:210:05:24

ALL: No!

0:05:240:05:25

It's been going slowly over the past few days.

0:05:250:05:29

Drink some lemon tea.

0:05:290:05:30

-Are you feeling all right?

-She's going to push it to the limit.

0:05:300:05:33

I'm just going to push it really hard.

0:05:330:05:36

-Don't worry, I'll be here.

-Claire! Please.

0:05:360:05:40

# Everything that could go wrong

0:05:420:05:44

# All went wrong at one time

0:05:440:05:48

# So much pressure fell on me

0:05:480:05:50

# I thought I was going to lose my mind

0:05:500:05:52

# But I know you wanna see

0:05:520:05:54

# If I can hold on through these trials

0:05:540:05:56

# But I need you to lift this load

0:05:560:05:59

# Cos I can't take it no more

0:05:590:06:02

# Shackles off my feet so I can dance

0:06:020:06:06

# I just want to praise you

0:06:060:06:09

# I just want to praise you

0:06:090:06:12

# You broke the chains Now I can lift my hands

0:06:120:06:16

# And I'm going to praise you

0:06:160:06:19

# I'm going to praise you

0:06:190:06:20

# Through the fire and the rain

0:06:220:06:24

# Bound in every kind of way

0:06:240:06:26

# But God has broken every chain... #

0:06:260:06:28

Go on, Aisha. Find that voice.

0:06:280:06:31

# Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance

0:06:310:06:35

# So I can dance

0:06:350:06:36

# I just want to praise you

0:06:360:06:39

# I just want to praise you

0:06:390:06:41

# You broke the chains Now I can lift my hands

0:06:410:06:44

# I can lift my hands

0:06:440:06:46

# And I'm going to praise you

0:06:460:06:49

-# I'm going to praise you

-# I'm going to praise you

0:06:490:06:52

# Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance

0:06:520:06:55

# Oh

0:06:550:06:56

# I just want to praise you

0:06:560:06:58

-# I just want to praise you

-# I just want to praise you

0:06:580:07:02

# You broke the chains Now I can lift my hands

0:07:020:07:04

# I can lift my hands

0:07:040:07:06

# And I'm going to praise you

0:07:060:07:08

# I'm going to praise you

0:07:080:07:10

# I'm going to praise you, yeah! #

0:07:100:07:14

That is probably one of the hardest songs to cover and cover well.

0:07:190:07:23

You guys absolutely nailed it.

0:07:230:07:26

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

0:07:260:07:28

You have really strong solo singers.

0:07:280:07:31

What's your name, young lady?

0:07:310:07:32

-Yeah.

-Aisha.

0:07:320:07:34

Aisha, you're like... You just reminded me of Mary J Blige.

0:07:340:07:37

ALL: Oh!

0:07:370:07:39

You've got an outstanding voice.

0:07:390:07:41

You've got good voices in there and you've got great dance energy

0:07:410:07:44

and there's a real unity. It was fantastic.

0:07:440:07:48

ALL: Thank you.

0:07:480:07:49

That was a really slick performance.

0:07:490:07:51

And you had the right balance between the choreography

0:07:510:07:54

and the singing. It didn't affect...

0:07:540:07:55

It was very entertaining to watch the choreography

0:07:550:07:58

but it didn't affect the vocals. Your solo part was incredible.

0:07:580:08:02

-Thank you.

-Like, ridiculous. How old are you?

-15. Oh, wait, 15? 16.

-16.

0:08:020:08:07

That's scary. That was really...

0:08:070:08:08

It was a brilliant performance, well done.

0:08:080:08:11

ALL: Thank you.

0:08:110:08:14

-Your voice held out, did it?

-Yeah.

-Yay!

0:08:140:08:17

-Compared to Mary J Blige!

-I know.

-High praise indeed.

0:08:170:08:20

-What do you think about that?

-Amazing.

-Oh, you're so croaky.

-Yeah.

0:08:200:08:24

My goodness, if that's you on a bad day... Wow.

0:08:240:08:30

She really was young Mary.

0:08:300:08:31

-She really sounds like Mary J Blige.

-Yeah.

0:08:310:08:33

# I'm going to praise you, yeah! #

0:08:330:08:37

# All I want is a proper, proper coffee made in a proper coffee pot! #

0:08:430:08:47

# Pushing down on me... #

0:08:470:08:50

# I'm going to let it shine. #

0:08:500:08:51

-Next up, we have Triple Threat. Sounds very dangerous.

-Oh, scary.

0:08:510:08:57

I liked them. They were very Glee-esque.

0:08:570:09:00

They're what I would call "tryers" and I think they will get better.

0:09:000:09:05

-Good. Did you enjoy it?

-ALL: Yes.

0:09:050:09:07

I think it's a case of whether or not they believe in themselves.

0:09:070:09:10

There's individual solos and stuff which are pretty good.

0:09:100:09:14

Have you had any dramas in the run-up to this or has it all been smooth?

0:09:140:09:18

I ended up with a sore throat and I had a solo in the piece

0:09:180:09:21

and I've had to change it around cos my throat's been really sore.

0:09:210:09:25

-Oh, my darling. How are you feeling?

-I'm all right.

0:09:250:09:28

-I just need to get through it.

-Are you going to be all right?

-Yeah.

0:09:280:09:31

Save it a little bit on the rehearsals.

0:09:310:09:32

-So who's taking your solo?

-Courtney.

-OK. How does that feel?

0:09:320:09:36

-Cos that's a bit last-minute. You've been thrown in the deep end.

-Erm...

0:09:360:09:39

I am nervous but I'll get through it.

0:09:390:09:42

# Under pressure! #

0:09:420:09:44

# Pressure

0:09:460:09:48

# Pushing down on me

0:09:480:09:50

# Pressing down on you No man ask for

0:09:500:09:53

# Under pressure

0:09:530:09:56

# That burns a building down

0:09:560:09:58

# Splits a family in two

0:09:580:10:00

# Puts people on the streets

0:10:000:10:03

# It's the terror of knowing what this world is about

0:10:030:10:06

# And watching some good friends screaming

0:10:060:10:09

# Let me out

0:10:090:10:11

# Pray tomorrow gets me higher

0:10:110:10:14

# Pressure on people

0:10:140:10:17

# People on the streets

0:10:170:10:19

# One by one

0:10:210:10:25

# Only the good die young

0:10:250:10:32

# They're only flying too close to the sun

0:10:320:10:38

# And life, it goes on

0:10:380:10:42

-# Without you... #

-Good!

0:10:420:10:46

# One by one

0:10:460:10:49

-# One by one

-# Only the good die young

0:10:490:10:55

# Good die young

0:10:550:10:57

# They're only flying too close to the sun

0:10:570:11:02

# Crying for no-one

0:11:020:11:07

# No-one but you. #

0:11:080:11:14

-How did that compare to how you've seen it before?

-Really well.

0:11:190:11:22

-They'll be really pleased with that.

-Excellent.

0:11:220:11:24

You've got your harmonies all coming together nicely,

0:11:240:11:26

the timing coming together nicely,

0:11:260:11:28

great to watch, really easy on the eye.

0:11:280:11:31

My one point to you would be that, at the moment,

0:11:310:11:34

you're just singing with volume.

0:11:340:11:36

I'd like you to look at, "How do we beautify that,

0:11:360:11:40

"make it smoother, more easy on the ear?"

0:11:400:11:42

-That's the one thing I'd ask you to look at.

-It's just a bit more...

0:11:420:11:45

I'd say, chemistry between you,

0:11:450:11:47

just trying to sort of make sure

0:11:470:11:49

that you acknowledge each other a little bit more as a whole.

0:11:490:11:53

And that I think would actually just give the viewer something a bit more

0:11:530:11:57

and it would draw us more into the performance.

0:11:570:11:59

ALL: Thank you.

0:11:590:12:01

Sometimes the key doesn't suit all of you,

0:12:010:12:04

so at points it felt a bit low for some

0:12:040:12:06

and a little bit high for others,

0:12:060:12:08

but, otherwise, individually, you were all absolutely fantastic.

0:12:080:12:13

ALL: Thank you.

0:12:130:12:16

So, tell me, how did that go? ALL: Amazing.

0:12:160:12:19

You really enjoyed it? Your leg thingamabob went well, didn't it?

0:12:190:12:23

Did you get all warmed up?

0:12:230:12:25

So your voice, you know, maybe not on top form but your legs are.

0:12:250:12:28

Brilliant.

0:12:280:12:30

It's easy when you've got that many kids

0:12:300:12:32

to actually favour volume and energy over quality.

0:12:320:12:38

And the hard thing is to get the absolutely right mix of both,

0:12:380:12:43

so you're getting all the energy

0:12:430:12:44

but you're also getting the best quality you can.

0:12:440:12:47

Sometimes, that means pulling back the volume.

0:12:470:12:50

# No-one but you. #

0:12:500:12:55

Both M.A.D and Triple Threat have struggled with their voices,

0:13:000:13:03

but still put in solid performances.

0:13:030:13:05

Next up, another two groups get the opportunity to impress the judges.

0:13:050:13:09

I love your sound.

0:13:090:13:11

I think you might have pulled it off.

0:13:110:13:13

I think you've still got potential to be an awesome group.

0:13:130:13:16

-The next act is The Sweets...

-The Sweets!

0:13:270:13:29

..and you guys will remember them

0:13:290:13:31

because every one of them is the original member.

0:13:310:13:33

Yeah. I remember liking them, so...

0:13:330:13:36

# She said I love you more than words can say... #

0:13:360:13:39

-How did it feel last year?

-It was amazing.

0:13:390:13:41

It was a really good experience.

0:13:410:13:43

Never done anything like that before.

0:13:430:13:44

# And now you want to pretend that you're a superstar... #

0:13:440:13:48

-Really nerve-wracking.

-Is it?

-Yeah.

0:13:480:13:50

And are you feeling nervous today?

0:13:500:13:52

I feel a bit better because I'm used to it from last year.

0:13:520:13:56

-Yeah.

-I feel, like, a bit well-known to it.

0:13:560:13:58

The second time you do something

0:13:580:14:00

-is always a bit easier, I think, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:14:000:14:02

# She said, I love you, boy, I love you so

0:14:110:14:15

# She said, I love you, baby Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

0:14:150:14:20

# She said, I love you more than words can say

0:14:250:14:28

# She said, I love you, bay-ay-ay-ay-baby

0:14:280:14:33

# So I said

0:14:410:14:44

# What you saying, girl? It can't be right

0:14:440:14:47

# How can you be in love with me?

0:14:470:14:50

# We only just met tonight

0:14:500:14:53

# So she said

0:14:530:14:55

# Oooh

0:14:550:14:57

# Boy, I loved you from the start

0:14:570:15:00

# When I first heard love go down

0:15:000:15:03

# Something started burning in my heart

0:15:030:15:07

# I said, stop this crazy talk

0:15:070:15:12

# Leave right now and close the door

0:15:120:15:17

# She said, I love you, boy, I love you so

0:15:190:15:22

# She said, I love you, baby Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

0:15:220:15:28

# Oh, why you got to treat me this way?

0:15:280:15:33

# She said. #

0:15:330:15:37

-Sweets...

-Yeah.

-..I love your sound.

0:15:400:15:44

It sounds really recordable. Your ensemble sound -

0:15:440:15:48

I want to hear it on record.

0:15:480:15:50

On the other side, I want to say, your solos

0:15:500:15:53

sound like you've been doing it for a few weeks

0:15:530:15:55

and you're just finding your feet.

0:15:550:15:57

They sounded a little bit nervous and a little bit like,

0:15:570:16:00

"I'm not sure if this is working or not."

0:16:000:16:02

Your ensemble sound is fabulous.

0:16:020:16:04

You sound like a girl band already signed and recorded.

0:16:040:16:07

-Wow.

-I'm going to be completely blunt with you.

0:16:070:16:10

The solos are not... You should give the solos to the strongest singers.

0:16:100:16:14

That's what kind of went wrong.

0:16:140:16:16

But now at least I've seen where you guys have gone wrong.

0:16:160:16:18

I could see you were nervous, it's good to be nervous,

0:16:180:16:20

but I think you've just got to embrace the fact

0:16:200:16:23

that you are really good singers. So now you know that,

0:16:230:16:25

just embrace it and go out there and do it, because you sound phenomenal.

0:16:250:16:29

Thank you.

0:16:290:16:30

Do you think the comments were fair? ALL: Yeah.

0:16:300:16:32

We need to work on... As a group,

0:16:320:16:35

we need to do more as a group, rather than, like, more solos -

0:16:350:16:38

because that's what they said was our strong point -

0:16:380:16:41

and our harmonies, so we'll go away and work on that.

0:16:410:16:43

You see, I think they are ready.

0:16:430:16:45

I think if they can take on that note,

0:16:450:16:48

let go of any ego attached to singing lead

0:16:480:16:51

and embrace the fact that if the group rises, everybody benefits...

0:16:510:16:56

Yes. I think they'll hear that. I think they'll be able to hear that.

0:16:560:16:59

-If they do, I think they've got a great sound.

-Yeah.

0:16:590:17:03

# She said. #

0:17:030:17:06

Next up, we have Encore. They're from Harrogate.

0:17:190:17:23

I was in two minds about these guys, but I thought,

0:17:230:17:26

"I want to put them through just to be sure,"

0:17:260:17:29

because I see some potential in them.

0:17:290:17:32

See what you guys think.

0:17:320:17:33

What are you going to think about before you do this performance?

0:17:330:17:36

Is there anything you're worrying about or any bits you think,

0:17:360:17:39

"Oh, no, that might go wrong," or is it all...?

0:17:390:17:41

I'm sure we're all nervous but we're just going to enjoy it

0:17:410:17:44

and have fun and do the best we can.

0:17:440:17:46

-Make the most of it.

-ALL: Yeah.

0:17:460:17:48

'That sounds like a very good idea.'

0:17:480:17:49

# Do you think of her

0:18:040:18:07

# When you're with me?

0:18:070:18:10

# Repeat the memories you made together

0:18:100:18:15

# Whose face do you see?

0:18:150:18:18

# Do you wish I was

0:18:180:18:21

# A bit more like her?

0:18:210:18:25

# Am I too loud?

0:18:250:18:26

# I play the clown

0:18:260:18:28

# To cover up all these doubts

0:18:280:18:32

# Perfect heart

0:18:320:18:35

# She's flawless

0:18:350:18:37

# She's the other woman

0:18:370:18:40

# Shining in her splendour

0:18:400:18:44

# You were lost

0:18:440:18:46

# Now she's gone

0:18:460:18:49

# And I'm picking up the pieces

0:18:490:18:53

# I watched you cry

0:18:530:18:55

# But you don't see that I'm the one by your side... #

0:18:550:19:00

-A lot of volume, haven't they, when they go for it?

-Yeah.

0:19:000:19:02

# In her shadow, is it me you see?

0:19:040:19:07

# Cos all that's left is you and I

0:19:070:19:11

# And I'm picking up the pieces

0:19:110:19:14

# She left behind. #

0:19:140:19:16

-What did you think?

-Yeah, they did really, really well.

0:19:210:19:24

I mean, we've rehearsed it over and over and over again.

0:19:240:19:27

I hope not too much so they're not bored of it.

0:19:270:19:29

But, yeah, they did quite well.

0:19:290:19:30

I really enjoyed your performance

0:19:300:19:33

and I'm challenged by it as well because it feels to me

0:19:330:19:36

that you are a dancing school who do some singing.

0:19:360:19:40

I think if you do get through to the next round,

0:19:400:19:43

-we've got to hear more vocals.

-OK.

0:19:430:19:46

Having half of you singing

0:19:460:19:48

and half of you dancing for the first two-thirds of the song...

0:19:480:19:53

it shouldn't work.

0:19:530:19:55

But I think you might have pulled it off,

0:19:550:19:58

because when you all come together for that final third,

0:19:580:20:01

suddenly it's like, "Whoa,

0:20:010:20:03

"here's the energy, here's the attitude,

0:20:030:20:07

"here's the attack."

0:20:070:20:09

I want to see more of that. ALL: OK. Thank you.

0:20:090:20:13

I'm not disappointed that I brought you back.

0:20:130:20:15

There's something about you guys.

0:20:150:20:16

I think if you take some of the advice and pull together

0:20:160:20:20

and put some emphasis on the vocal and work on that,

0:20:200:20:24

I think you could really be a dark horse.

0:20:240:20:27

ALL: Thank you.

0:20:270:20:29

I really enjoyed the dynamic of having the kind of singing

0:20:290:20:32

on the outside and the dancing in the middle at the start.

0:20:320:20:35

The vocals were good, but I think you need to balance

0:20:350:20:39

the intensity of the dancing with the singing, so that it kind of matches.

0:20:390:20:43

Because it was kind of... There was so much dancing that it kind of...

0:20:430:20:47

it distracted a tiny bit from the singing.

0:20:470:20:49

But when you were singing, it was great.

0:20:490:20:51

So push it more and make it a lot more powerful and louder.

0:20:510:20:55

-OK. Thank you.

-ALL: Thank you.

0:20:550:20:57

-Oh, they didn't squeal as they went out the door.

-Ah, yeah.

0:20:590:21:03

-Was I too hard?

-ALL: No.

0:21:030:21:05

They said a few things to you about, perhaps,

0:21:050:21:07

there being a bit much dancing.

0:21:070:21:08

What did you make of those comments? ALL: Fair enough.

0:21:080:21:14

We did take a risk with the dancing cos we've got a lot of it and...

0:21:140:21:18

I guess if you're strong dancers, you want to show that off.

0:21:180:21:21

But we have a lot of strong singers as well

0:21:210:21:23

so I definitely think we can pull that through.

0:21:230:21:26

-We could see so much more than we've seen.

-Yeah, they could...

0:21:260:21:29

They're the best dancers...

0:21:290:21:31

-out of anybody.

-Technically, the arabesque, beautiful ballet...

0:21:310:21:34

Yeah. If you put that together with the singing, if they work on that...

0:21:340:21:37

Their image is good, everything about them, the way they...

0:21:370:21:41

Yeah, they're confident.

0:21:410:21:43

I still like them. I like them. I'm glad...

0:21:430:21:45

It could be one of those that are a dark horse that you go,

0:21:450:21:47

-"Let's put them through and see if they take the advice."

-Exactly.

0:21:470:21:52

# She left behind. #

0:21:520:21:54

Four acts have now performed for the judges,

0:22:010:22:03

and with four groups still to see,

0:22:030:22:05

let's take a moment to remind ourselves why we're all here.

0:22:050:22:09

Comic Relief works hard

0:22:090:22:12

0:22:120:22:15

by funding projects all over Africa,

0:22:150:22:17

as well as right here in the UK.

0:22:170:22:20

In fact, the charity has funded over 15,000 projects in the UK,

0:22:200:22:24

working 365 days a year to change things for the better.

0:22:240:22:29

The donations that you make will help vulnerable people

0:22:320:22:35

0:22:510:22:54

Right, next up, we have Fly Beat and they are from South East London.

0:23:030:23:07

Some group members, you would previously know them

0:23:070:23:10

-from a group called Eight Tracks.

-Oh, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:23:100:23:14

I saw them... Colourful. They are a colourful bunch.

0:23:140:23:17

A couple of them stand out more than others

0:23:170:23:19

but I think they are, overall, quite enjoyable.

0:23:190:23:22

Awesome. Very well worked.

0:24:530:24:59

Fly Beat, if I could bottle up how you made me feel

0:25:040:25:08

during that performance,

0:25:080:25:10

I think I would have many happy days just feeding off that bottle.

0:25:100:25:13

It was amazing in terms of the feeling that you guys have.

0:25:130:25:17

There's so much energy.

0:25:170:25:18

What I would say is it's a little bit sloppy dance-wise,

0:25:180:25:21

and a little bit sloppy with the singing.

0:25:210:25:24

At some point, you've got to take that energy that you've got,

0:25:240:25:28

this natural, raw talent and energy,

0:25:280:25:31

and look at how you really discipline it

0:25:310:25:33

so that every person is doing exactly the same thing

0:25:330:25:36

that they're meant to be doing at the same time.

0:25:360:25:39

-But just the feel, 100% brilliant.

-Thank you.

0:25:390:25:43

You're exuberant, you're joyful, you made me smile,

0:25:430:25:48

even though I didn't want to smile.

0:25:480:25:49

I was trying to do this.

0:25:490:25:52

I kept doing this.

0:25:520:25:54

I didn't want to but I couldn't help myself. Your opening was great.

0:25:540:26:00

Yes, you have to tighten up, yes,

0:26:000:26:02

you've got to rehearse a bit more to make sure everything is in line,

0:26:020:26:05

but what you have there is just a burst of energy

0:26:050:26:09

that is fantastic to watch.

0:26:090:26:12

ALL: Thank you.

0:26:120:26:14

Guys, you were incredible. It was amazing.

0:26:140:26:17

I wanted to get up there and dance with you.

0:26:170:26:19

When you went into the splits, I was like, "Did he actually just do that?

0:26:190:26:23

"That was incredible." And your dancing - I loved it.

0:26:230:26:25

And when you hit that high note,

0:26:250:26:27

I was, like, giving you all virtual high-fives. Well done, guys.

0:26:270:26:30

-I really enjoyed it.

-ALL: Thank you.

0:26:300:26:32

How are you all feeling after that? ALL: Really good.

0:26:320:26:36

-Speechless.

-Are you? What was it like?

0:26:360:26:39

When you've just got the opportunity to do that,

0:26:390:26:43

you just wanted to give it your all

0:26:430:26:45

and show them that you had the music in you.

0:26:450:26:48

And do you think you did that? ALL: Yeah.

0:26:480:26:50

It's a funny one, that one, isn't it?

0:26:500:26:51

Cos everything in you goes,

0:26:510:26:53

-"Is their singing that great?"

-ALL: No.

0:26:530:26:55

-"Is their dancing that great?"

-Definitely not.

-No.

0:26:550:26:58

"Do you really like them?" Yes!

0:26:580:27:01

Are they entertaining?

0:27:010:27:03

-Yeah.

-Yes, 100%.

-They are very entertaining.

0:27:030:27:06

-Would you want to see that again?

-Yes.

-Absolutely.

0:27:060:27:09

-It's not all about the voice.

-It's not all about the voice.

0:27:090:27:12

And that showed there cos that was really cool.

0:27:120:27:16

# Yeah! #

0:27:160:27:19

KIDS ALL CHEER

0:27:210:27:23

JUDGES: Aww!

0:27:230:27:24

Right, next up, it's Resonate. I first saw these guys in London

0:27:310:27:34

and they came all the way up from the Isle of Wight.

0:27:340:27:37

-How are you feeling today?

-Excited.

-Really excited.

0:27:430:27:47

Looking forward to this? How much rehearsal have you been doing?

0:27:470:27:50

ALL: Lots.

0:27:500:27:52

Been getting together regularly? ALL: Yeah.

0:27:520:27:54

Most weeks we've been getting together. A few hours a week.

0:27:540:27:57

They're doing a song that... well, I like,

0:27:570:27:59

but also I like the version they've done.

0:27:590:28:01

There's something about them again very Glee-esque. I liked it.

0:28:010:28:05

That's quite special, I like that.

0:28:050:28:07

# It's over and done

0:28:110:28:13

# But the heartache lives on

0:28:130:28:15

# Inside

0:28:150:28:19

# Yeah, yeah

0:28:190:28:21

# And who is the one you're singing to

0:28:210:28:25

# Instead of me tonight

0:28:250:28:30

# And where are you now?

0:28:300:28:34

# Now that I need you

0:28:340:28:37

# Tears on my pillow

0:28:370:28:40

# Wherever you go

0:28:400:28:42

# Cry me a river

0:28:420:28:44

# That leads to your ocean

0:28:440:28:48

# You'll never see me fall apart

0:28:480:28:51

# In the words of a broken heart

0:28:510:28:54

# It's just emotion taking me over

0:28:540:28:58

# Caught up in sorrow

0:28:580:29:01

# Lost in the song

0:29:010:29:04

# But if you don't come back

0:29:040:29:07

# Come back to me, darling

0:29:070:29:10

# Don't you know there's nobody left

0:29:100:29:12

# In this world to hold me tight

0:29:120:29:15

# Don't you know

0:29:150:29:17

# There's nobody left in this world to kiss good night

0:29:170:29:22

-# Good night

-# Good night, good night

0:29:220:29:26

# Good night. #

0:29:280:29:34

Well done, firstly. That was... The vocals were really soothing

0:29:380:29:43

and smooth, like I could have sat and listened to that sound all day.

0:29:430:29:46

Very angelic, um...

0:29:460:29:48

One slight criticism, I feel like there was

0:29:480:29:53

maybe a tiny bit too much choreography.

0:29:530:29:56

And it was a bit distracting from how beautiful the sound was.

0:29:560:29:59

But other than that, it sounded brilliant, and essentially

0:29:590:30:02

that's what it should be about, the vocals, so well done.

0:30:020:30:05

Thank you.

0:30:050:30:07

I absolutely loved that song and the good news is I still love it.

0:30:070:30:10

So I think for you guys, from what I've seen

0:30:100:30:14

as well, you are singers first,

0:30:140:30:17

and I think the choreography actually prevented you from

0:30:170:30:21

engaging and telling the story in that

0:30:210:30:24

because you're thinking of your moves.

0:30:240:30:26

You kind of get distracted and that's what I'd say as well.

0:30:260:30:29

Just focus on what you're really good at

0:30:290:30:32

and be minimalistic in the other areas.

0:30:320:30:34

You could drop all your choreography as far as I'm concerned.

0:30:340:30:38

I felt that that compromised

0:30:380:30:39

the beautiful faces that were there from time to time

0:30:390:30:42

and then you'd forget to do the face thing

0:30:420:30:45

because you're so busy thinking, "Am I stepping to the right

0:30:450:30:48

"or am I stepping to the left?" Drop a lot of that.

0:30:480:30:51

The vocals are beautiful.

0:30:510:30:54

The inner life is beautiful.

0:30:540:30:55

Those are the key elements of performance

0:30:550:30:58

that you as a group need to bring forth.

0:30:580:31:00

OK, thank you very much, thank you.

0:31:000:31:02

I didn't like that one, though.

0:31:020:31:04

LAUGHTER Let's do it.

0:31:040:31:06

-From that...ready?

-Am I taking it?

0:31:060:31:08

-What's this?

-You don't notice anything,

0:31:080:31:10

-you're so busy listening to singing.

-Yeah.

0:31:100:31:13

So, that was Fly Beat and Resonate, two very different

0:31:250:31:28

but equally entertaining groups, giving it their all.

0:31:280:31:32

Now for today's final two acts.

0:31:320:31:34

Will their nerves get the better of them?

0:31:340:31:36

I'm trying to work out why you're not more confident.

0:31:360:31:40

Watching you there, you look like a bunch of rehearse-aholics.

0:31:400:31:43

A tiny bit more energy and that would have been just perfect.

0:31:430:31:48

Right, next up we have Blue Note from County Durham.

0:31:550:31:59

# True love... #

0:31:590:32:02

I saw these guys and thought to myself,

0:32:020:32:04

slightly older, more mature sound and I really liked them.

0:32:040:32:09

I just felt, when they sang, they had some emotion to give,

0:32:090:32:14

so I hope you like them.

0:32:140:32:16

What do you think it's going to be like in there?

0:32:160:32:19

-What do you imagine the experience will be like?

-Petrifying!

0:32:190:32:22

-Do you think?

-It'll be really nerve-wracking.

0:32:220:32:25

But at the same time, just enjoy it

0:32:250:32:27

because it could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

0:32:270:32:30

# Yeah, yeah, yeah

0:32:320:32:35

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:32:350:32:38

# Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:32:380:32:41

# Ooh

0:32:410:32:43

# Yeah

0:32:430:32:44

# You and I

0:32:440:32:46

# Bloodline

0:32:460:32:48

# We come together every time

0:32:480:32:53

# Ooh

0:32:530:32:55

# Two wrongs, no rights

0:32:550:32:59

# We lose ourselves at night

0:32:590:33:04

# Ooh

0:33:040:33:06

# From the outside From the outside

0:33:060:33:09

# Everyone must be wondering why we try

0:33:090:33:14

# Why do we try?

0:33:140:33:18

# Baby, in our wildest moments

0:33:180:33:21

# We can be the greatest... #

0:33:210:33:24

That sounds lovely.

0:33:240:33:26

# ..Moments

0:33:260:33:28

# We could be the worst of all

0:33:280:33:30

# Baby, in our wildest moments

0:33:300:33:33

# Hey, babe

0:33:330:33:34

# We could be the greatest We could be the greatest

0:33:340:33:37

# Baby, in our wildest moments

0:33:370:33:39

# We could be the worst of all

0:33:390:33:42

# Yeah, in the middle of it

0:33:420:33:44

# We walk, we walk the line

0:33:440:33:46

# Looking back, I miss it

0:33:460:33:47

# Ooh

0:33:470:33:51

# Ooh, worst of all. #

0:33:510:33:55

-What do you think of that?

-I think they did really well.

0:33:580:34:01

I think some of the nerves in the beginning shone through

0:34:010:34:04

but they coped really well.

0:34:040:34:06

You guys have completely confused me because I think you're fantastic.

0:34:060:34:11

But I'm trying to work out why you're not more confident.

0:34:110:34:14

Because you all look terrified.

0:34:140:34:17

And you shouldn't be because you should be more confident

0:34:170:34:20

with that kind of talent.

0:34:200:34:22

I would be like, "Yee-hee, listen to me, I'm great!" So yeah,

0:34:220:34:26

just build on your confidence, it's all there.

0:34:260:34:29

I think that the attitude you should have

0:34:290:34:32

should be one of absolute conviction.

0:34:320:34:34

Not just being in the moment, but being like,

0:34:340:34:37

hitting it, throwing it out there with confidence

0:34:370:34:41

because there are different levels of conviction and intensity.

0:34:410:34:45

Therefore you should come into it

0:34:450:34:47

with the attitude, you're either going to like this or love it.

0:34:470:34:51

-Hm.

-I absolutely love it. You're all so individual,

0:34:510:34:54

so you've all got a completely different tone and style of voice

0:34:540:34:59

and it all comes together beautifully. You performed amazingly.

0:34:590:35:04

I will say I'd love to see a tiny bit more energy

0:35:040:35:07

cos it's really exciting to see you all with these fantastic voices

0:35:070:35:11

but it's almost like you're not sure of how great you are

0:35:110:35:15

so you're not sure individually

0:35:150:35:17

just how fantastic and great you sound together.

0:35:170:35:20

So a tiny bit more energy and that would have been perfect.

0:35:200:35:24

Thank you.

0:35:240:35:26

Was it a surprise what they said to you?

0:35:260:35:28

I think it was a surprise because Catherine said we needed

0:35:280:35:31

to up our energy and we were trying, but with such a slow song,

0:35:310:35:34

with simple movement, it's hard to energise it.

0:35:340:35:38

I just felt they were beating themselves up

0:35:380:35:40

halfway through the performance even.

0:35:400:35:43

-They were all so positive, but it still seemed like...

-I know.

0:35:430:35:46

You're right. We're trying to build their confidence up

0:35:460:35:49

and they're losing confidence as we're giving them comments.

0:35:490:35:51

I think that what you got there was a classic example

0:35:510:35:55

of people waiting for us to tell them

0:35:550:35:58

whether they were good or not,

0:35:580:36:00

rather than them standing there trying to show us how good they are.

0:36:000:36:04

# ..Worst of all. #

0:36:040:36:06

Right, next up we have Raveheart. They're from Motherwell.

0:36:140:36:19

I saw them in Glasgow.

0:36:190:36:20

Hello, girls!

0:36:200:36:21

'Quite frankly, as far as performance is concerned,

0:36:210:36:25

'I think they set the bar.'

0:36:250:36:27

So I'm hoping they do exactly what they did for me.

0:36:270:36:30

Both vocally and choreographically they function as a unit.

0:36:300:36:35

Tight, and it's a wall of sound.

0:36:350:36:37

THEY SHOUT

0:36:370:36:39

# Mama told me not to waste my life

0:36:410:36:45

# She said

0:36:450:36:46

# Spread your wings My little butterfly

0:36:460:36:49

# Don't let what they say keep you up at night

0:36:490:36:54

# And if they give you ssh

0:36:540:36:56

# Then they can walk on by

0:36:560:36:58

# My feet, they can't touch the ground

0:36:580:37:02

# And I can't hear a sound

0:37:020:37:03

# But you just keep on running up your mouth, yeah

0:37:030:37:07

# Walk, walk, walk on over there

0:37:070:37:10

# Cos I'm too fly to care

0:37:100:37:13

# Oh, yeah

0:37:130:37:15

# Your words don't mean a thing

0:37:150:37:18

# I'm not listening

0:37:180:37:20

# Keep talking

0:37:200:37:22

# All I know is

0:37:220:37:24

# Mama told me not to waste my life

0:37:240:37:27

# She said spread your wings

0:37:270:37:29

# My little butterfly

0:37:290:37:31

# Don't let what they say keep you up at night

0:37:310:37:36

# And they can't detain you

0:37:360:37:38

# These wings are made to fly

0:37:380:37:42

# And we'll let nobody bring us down

0:37:420:37:46

# No matter what they say it won't hurt me

0:37:460:37:51

# No matter if I fall from the sky

0:37:510:37:55

# These wings are made to fly

0:37:550:37:58

# And we'll let nobody bring us down

0:37:580:38:02

# No matter what they say it won't hurt me

0:38:020:38:07

# No matter if I fall from the sky

0:38:070:38:11

# These wings are made to fly. #

0:38:110:38:14

Watching you there, you look like a bunch of rehearse-aholics.

0:38:200:38:23

You absolutely were able to just perform because you knew

0:38:230:38:28

what you were doing, you didn't look like you were thinking about steps,

0:38:280:38:32

the notes, what arm to use when,

0:38:320:38:34

you just did it.

0:38:340:38:36

And as far as I'm concerned, from what I've seen there,

0:38:360:38:39

anybody who wants to win this

0:38:390:38:41

is going to have to kick and scratch and push past you.

0:38:410:38:46

Thank you.

0:38:460:38:48

Wow!

0:38:480:38:50

Bringing you back, it was a no-brainer.

0:38:500:38:53

You definitely set the bar for me.

0:38:530:38:55

You're a strong group, strong contenders,

0:38:550:38:58

there's energy, chemistry, there's everything, really.

0:38:580:39:01

I think, whatever we give you and whatever is thrown at you,

0:39:010:39:05

you will deliver and, yes, you will rehearse it to death.

0:39:050:39:09

Yes, yes.

0:39:090:39:11

There was a small timing issue,

0:39:110:39:13

but I put that down to you were so rehearsed

0:39:130:39:15

and you practised it so much and when you get there,

0:39:150:39:18

you just want it to be done cos you're so nervous.

0:39:180:39:21

So I completely understand that. Just chill out next time

0:39:210:39:24

cos you're so good, so, so, so good.

0:39:240:39:27

You don't need to worry about getting to the end.

0:39:270:39:30

Thank you.

0:39:300:39:32

-How was it?

-Amazing.

0:39:320:39:34

Are you all a bit teary? Oh!

0:39:340:39:36

So you really enjoyed it in there?

0:39:360:39:39

-Yeah.

-Proper good?

0:39:390:39:41

You guys seem really determined to do well in this competition.

0:39:410:39:46

-Yeah, we are.

-We're determined. We know we're well in,

0:39:460:39:50

we just give it 100% always and we are so dedicated

0:39:500:39:53

and we'd love to get the chance to go further, it'd be brilliant.

0:39:530:39:56

I can see it means an awful lot to you.

0:39:560:39:59

There are a couple of weaker performers in there,

0:39:590:40:02

-intensity-wise.

-I definitely agree.

0:40:020:40:04

It's different and they do need to decide...

0:40:040:40:07

This little girl at the front is just giving it large.

0:40:070:40:11

-And the one on the right.

-She needs to calm down a bit,

0:40:110:40:14

otherwise all the time my eyes are thinking

0:40:140:40:17

why am I being confused by this performance?

0:40:170:40:19

My eyes get drawn to this side, away from the ones who aren't as sharp.

0:40:190:40:24

So either they go towards the cooler end

0:40:240:40:28

or they all have to give 100% energy.

0:40:280:40:31

# ..These wings are made to fly. #

0:40:310:40:34

So, here's a quick reminder of the glee clubs

0:40:400:40:42

that performed for the judges on today's show.

0:40:420:40:45

M.A.D from London.

0:40:450:40:46

# ..Move all my beats so I can dance... #

0:40:460:40:50

Triple Threat from Falkirk.

0:40:500:40:54

# ..Knowing what this world's about

0:40:540:40:56

# And watching some good friends screaming

0:40:560:40:59

# Let me out... #

0:40:590:41:01

The Sweets from Essex.

0:41:030:41:05

# ..I love you so

0:41:050:41:07

# She said I love you, babe Oh oh oh oh... #

0:41:070:41:12

Encore from Harrogate.

0:41:120:41:16

# In the shadow is it me you seek... #

0:41:170:41:21

# I'll always get by... #

0:41:210:41:23

Fly Beat from London.

0:41:230:41:25

# ..I cool down

0:41:250:41:26

# When something gets in my way

0:41:260:41:29

# I go round it... #

0:41:290:41:31

Resonate from the Isle of Wight.

0:41:310:41:35

# ..Lost in the song... #

0:41:350:41:38

# ..Oh... #

0:41:380:41:40

Blue Note from County Durham.

0:41:400:41:43

# ..Bloodline

0:41:430:41:45

# We come together every time... #

0:41:450:41:49

And finally, Raveheart from Motherwell.

0:41:490:41:54

# ..These wings are made to fly. #

0:41:550:41:58

OK, so all today's groups have now performed,

0:42:040:42:06

but remember, not everyone can make it to the next round.

0:42:060:42:10

Let's join our experts to see who from this first judges' audition show

0:42:100:42:14

has made it through to the studio heats.

0:42:140:42:17

Fingers crossed they all agree.

0:42:170:42:19

-We loved these, didn't we?

-Absolutely.

-Definite?

-Yes.

0:42:190:42:23

-So a definite, yeah?

-Yes.

-Yeah, they were my favourites.

0:42:230:42:26

-Were they?

-OK, that's a definite then.

0:42:260:42:29

-That's good so far.

-So we need two more.

0:42:290:42:32

Too dancery for me.

0:42:320:42:34

-John, you don't agree with that, do you?

-Very different to me.

0:42:340:42:39

I can't even compare the two.

0:42:390:42:40

You can't judge the singing with the dancing. Definite no for me.

0:42:400:42:44

-For me, definite no.

-They're not ready.

-OK.

-It's too early.

0:42:440:42:46

Now, we have one more place left. On three,

0:42:460:42:49

let's point to the one we think should go through. One, two,

0:42:490:42:52

three.

0:42:520:42:54

Outvoted.

0:42:540:42:56

Democracy is overrated.

0:42:560:42:59

So, the five glee clubs going through to the studio heat are...

0:43:030:43:08

..and finally...

0:43:210:43:23

So, there you have it, the first five groups have made it through

0:43:270:43:31

to the studio heats and one step closer to the live shows.

0:43:310:43:35
