Welcome to Glee Club!

0:00:020:00:04

There's joyful, exuberant energy.

0:00:040:00:07

Last time, Accelerate, Impact, Musicality, New Creation

0:00:070:00:12

and Diva 8 wowed the judges to book their place in the heats.

0:00:120:00:16

Absolutely stunning.

0:00:160:00:18

This is the last of our Judges Audition shows and,

0:00:180:00:21

with only five places left, who's got what it takes to get through?

0:00:210:00:25

This is Comic Relief Does Glee Club 2013.

0:00:250:00:28

Hello and welcome back. This is Comic Relief Does Glee Club 2013.

0:00:470:00:51

The search for Britain's best young singing and dancing group.

0:00:510:00:55

This is the third and final Judges Audition show.

0:00:550:00:59

Today we're going to see eight of the last groups

0:00:590:01:02

performing for the judges.

0:01:020:01:03

All hoping they've got what it takes to become

0:01:030:01:05

the Comic Relief Does Glee Club of 2013.

0:01:050:01:10

But before all that, let's take a look back at some acts who

0:01:100:01:13

performed for us during the Glee Club tour of the UK.

0:01:130:01:16

Naomi and Glee Club judge John Body travelled the country

0:01:220:01:25

in their mission to find the best glee clubs Britain has to offer.

0:01:250:01:29

# Momma told me not to waste my life... #

0:01:290:01:32

Their journey began in Newcastle,

0:01:320:01:34

where they saw some amazing talent from the North-East,

0:01:340:01:38

before heading across the water to Belfast.

0:01:380:01:40

One, two, three, whooo!

0:01:400:01:42

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

0:01:420:01:46

Next was Glasgow, where Scottish groups took to the stage

0:01:460:01:50

and wowed John with showstopping performances.

0:01:500:01:52

They've got attitude, the hoods are up, they're giving it everything.

0:01:520:01:55

Are you excited that we're finding talent in Glasgow?

0:01:550:01:58

Very excited about Glasgow. Love it.

0:01:580:02:00

The mission continued south of the border in sunny Manchester,

0:02:000:02:04

with more top groups going all out to impress.

0:02:040:02:07

# I just want you to be my baby tonight... #

0:02:070:02:10

And the talent kept on coming in Cardiff.

0:02:120:02:14

# Ain't no mountain high enough ain't no valley low enough... #

0:02:140:02:18

Finally John and Naomi headed to London, where the

0:02:180:02:20

-mission ended on a high.

-It's a whole hive of activity out here.

0:02:200:02:24

The standard on the tour was fantastic,

0:02:270:02:29

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

0:02:290:02:32

would perform again here at the Judges Auditions.

0:02:320:02:35

We saw groups from all over the UK,

0:02:410:02:43

and it's almost time to see the final eight perform.

0:02:430:02:47

But before that, let's meet the people they have to impress.

0:02:470:02:50

It's our judges.

0:02:500:02:52

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

0:02:580:03:02

That was really good. I love your energy.

0:03:020:03:03

Breathtaking.

0:03:030:03:05

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

0:03:050:03:07

from the Spice Girls and Take That to The Saturdays.

0:03:070:03:10

Celebrity vocal and performance coach John has worked with

0:03:100:03:13

a variety of stars, from Leona Lewis to Olly Murs and Alexandra Burke.

0:03:130:03:17

He's also worked behind the scenes on top shows like The Voice

0:03:170:03:21

and X Factor.

0:03:210:03:22

Offering additional advice to the groups will be West End star

0:03:220:03:25

and X Factor winner, Joe McElderry.

0:03:250:03:28

He's recorded four albums

0:03:280:03:29

and his debut single, The Climb, topped the UK charts.

0:03:290:03:32

Soul singer and presenter Dionne Bromfield,

0:03:330:03:36

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

0:03:360:03:39

and finds time to present CBBC's Friday Download.

0:03:390:03:42

And X Factor finalist and television presenter Stacey Solomon.

0:03:440:03:48

Not only has she wowed audiences with her voice,

0:03:480:03:50

she's also a regular star on our TV screens.

0:03:500:03:54

Loads of groups applied for Comic Relief Does Glee Club,

0:04:000:04:02

but only the top 24 have made it to the Judges Auditions.

0:04:020:04:07

With only five places remaining in the studio heat,

0:04:070:04:10

there is everything to play for.

0:04:100:04:12

So let's meet the first of today's acts.

0:04:120:04:14

First up, it's The Peppermints, from Hartlepool.

0:04:210:04:24

THEY DO VOICE EXERCISES

0:04:250:04:27

I saw these guys in Newcastle.

0:04:290:04:31

Hello, girls!

0:04:310:04:32

ALL: Hello.

0:04:320:04:34

Welcome! Look at you!

0:04:340:04:35

'And they're hilarious.'

0:04:350:04:37

I liked them from the start. For me, they've got stage presence.

0:04:370:04:40

There's something quirky about them. I really like them.

0:04:400:04:43

And their sound was really good, so if they're anything like I saw,

0:04:430:04:46

you guys are in for a treat.

0:04:460:04:48

Here they are, The Peppermints.

0:04:480:04:50

The girls with the freshest breath in showbusiness.

0:04:500:04:53

How are you doing?

0:04:530:04:54

ALL: Fine, thank you.

0:04:540:04:56

How does it feel today about being in the Judges Audition show?

0:04:560:05:00

Can't wait. It's, like, so exciting.

0:05:000:05:02

And this is like meaning, this is good luck?

0:05:020:05:04

-Yeah.

-Right, good luck, Peppermints.

0:05:040:05:07

ALL: Thank you!

0:05:070:05:08

# Would you know my name

0:05:110:05:16

# If I saw you in heaven?

0:05:160:05:22

# Would it feel the same

0:05:220:05:27

# If I saw you in heaven?

0:05:270:05:32

# I must be strong

0:05:320:05:37

# And carry on

0:05:370:05:40

# Cos I know I don't belong

0:05:400:05:45

# Here in heaven. #

0:05:450:05:51

# My momma told me not to waste my life

0:05:540:05:58

# She said, "Spread your wings my little butterfly

0:05:580:06:03

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

0:06:030:06:07

# "And if they give you shhh then they can walk on by

0:06:070:06:11

# Your words don't mean a thing

0:06:110:06:14

# I'm not listening

0:06:140:06:17

# Keep talking

0:06:170:06:18

# All I know is Momma told me not to waste my life

0:06:180:06:24

# She said, "Spread your wings my little butterfly

0:06:240:06:27

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

0:06:270:06:32

# And they can't detain you These wings are made to fly. #

0:06:320:06:38

-What did you think of that?

-Brilliant. Fantastic.

0:06:430:06:45

-Yeah, they did good, didn't they?

-Yeah.

0:06:450:06:47

It's a very rare moment

0:06:470:06:48

when you're watching people that are not used to doing this stuff,

0:06:480:06:52

where, as a judge, you can absolutely relax and enjoy it.

0:06:520:06:55

But I found myself completely relaxed and secure in your performance.

0:06:550:06:59

So confident, straight out the traps, all of you giving 100%.

0:06:590:07:04

Not one weak link. And one of your greatest strengths is your pitching.

0:07:040:07:08

It's so precise and so on it.

0:07:080:07:11

-Fantastic.

-Thank you.

0:07:110:07:13

-Look at her!

-"That's me, that's me."

-You're like energy bombs,

0:07:130:07:15

exploding all over the stage.

0:07:150:07:17

I could look at any of you and see the same amount of energy

0:07:170:07:20

and intensity and attitude.

0:07:200:07:23

That was fantastic.

0:07:230:07:24

ALL: Thank you.

0:07:240:07:25

I loved that you showed us how diverse

0:07:250:07:28

and beautiful all your voices were at the beginning

0:07:280:07:30

and then showed us all the energy and all of the fun that you bring

0:07:300:07:34

to the stage, and it was absolutely brilliant.

0:07:340:07:37

Really, really good.

0:07:370:07:39

NAOMI SQUEALS

0:07:400:07:41

Oh, I'm so proud of you all!

0:07:410:07:44

So how do you feel, having performed?

0:07:460:07:49

-Just... Just...

-I want to go and do it all again!

-Me too!

0:07:490:07:52

-Me too!

-Me too!

0:07:520:07:54

I thought they could never carry that first song.

0:07:540:07:56

To carry the first song

0:07:560:07:58

and two completely different emotions...

0:07:580:08:01

It showcased all of their talent.

0:08:010:08:03

So instead of just, "We can sing,"

0:08:030:08:05

or "We've got loads of energy and we can move around,"

0:08:050:08:07

they showed us both, which I think was really, really good.

0:08:070:08:10

# These wings are made to fly! #

0:08:100:08:12

You're focused. Come here before you get into your positions.

0:08:180:08:21

How are you?

0:08:210:08:22

'Next we've got Activ8, who impressed me in Glasgow.'

0:08:220:08:25

They were very High School Musical. Lots of potential.

0:08:250:08:28

That's what I like to hear.

0:08:280:08:29

I like to hear people out of breath after they've performed.

0:08:290:08:33

You're looking very angelic today.

0:08:330:08:35

And you're all really quiet.

0:08:350:08:37

Are you all feeling a bit nervous?

0:08:370:08:39

ALL: Yes.

0:08:390:08:40

What is going on in your heads at the moment?

0:08:400:08:43

I have butterflies, but I don't know if it's nerves or excitement.

0:08:430:08:47

-A bit of both, maybe.

-Yeah.

-All right.

0:08:470:08:49

Off you go, Activ8.

0:08:500:08:51

Go and impress them.

0:08:510:08:53

# You've got me losing my mind

0:08:560:08:59

# My heart beats out of time

0:08:590:09:02

# Ba ba ba-da

0:09:020:09:03

# I'm seeing Hollywood stars

0:09:030:09:07

# You strum me like a guitar

0:09:070:09:09

# Ba, ba ba-da

0:09:090:09:11

# I can taste the tension like a cloud of smoke in the air

0:09:110:09:16

# Now I'm breathing like I'm running cos you're taking me there

0:09:160:09:19

# Don't you know... Ba ba ba-da

0:09:190:09:22

# You spin me out of control

0:09:220:09:25

# Ba ba da ba ba-da-da

0:09:250:09:28

# And we can do it all night

0:09:280:09:30

# Damn, this love is skin tight

0:09:300:09:32

# Baby, come on

0:09:320:09:35

# Pull me like a bass drum

0:09:350:09:38

# Sparkin' up the rhythm Baby, come on!

0:09:380:09:43

# Hey, yeah!

0:09:430:09:44

# Rock my world into the sunlight

0:09:440:09:47

# Make this dream the best I've ever known

0:09:470:09:50

# Let's go dancing in the moonlight

0:09:500:09:55

# Take me down like I'm a domino

0:09:550:09:58

# Every second is a highlight

0:09:580:10:02

# When we touch don't ever let me go

0:10:020:10:06

# Let's go dancing in the moonlight

0:10:060:10:09

# Take me down like I'm a domino

0:10:090:10:13

# Oh, baby baby got me feeling so right

0:10:130:10:17

# Oh, baby baby dancing in the moonlight

0:10:170:10:20

# Oh, baby baby got me feeling so right

0:10:200:10:25

# Oh, baby baby dancing in the moonlight #

0:10:250:10:29

Activ8, you were fantastic.

0:10:330:10:34

You all look terrified and I'm not quite sure why you look so terrified.

0:10:340:10:39

I could listen to your blend and your arrangements all day long.

0:10:390:10:44

Too many soloists. We need two people who sing really well.

0:10:440:10:48

Choose your strongest singers.

0:10:480:10:50

Your weapon is the ensemble arrangement blended singing.

0:10:500:10:54

That's your strength, not the solo stuff.

0:10:540:10:56

I liked the fact that you all sang,

0:10:590:11:01

because it showed that there isn't a weak voice in there.

0:11:010:11:04

Quite often there's a passenger.

0:11:040:11:06

-Um... Excuse me?

-I disagree with that.

0:11:060:11:09

-Oooh!

-I think there were strong singers in there

0:11:090:11:11

-and they need to make the most of those strong singers.

-Judges' rivalry! Love it!

0:11:110:11:15

..value your opinion,

0:11:150:11:17

but I'm ignoring it.

0:11:170:11:18

I liked the fact that there weren't any weak voices in there.

0:11:180:11:21

I liked the roles that you took.

0:11:210:11:23

Each of you took the right part for your voice.

0:11:230:11:25

Where I do think there was a weakness, I have to say,

0:11:250:11:28

was in the amount of energy that you gave the performance.

0:11:280:11:31

I want to see so much more pow! Ka-pow!

0:11:310:11:33

Because what you're doing is,

0:11:330:11:35

vocally you're giving it loads, visually

0:11:350:11:38

and physically it looked almost at times as though you were marking it.

0:11:380:11:42

You were singing it, you performed it Cinderella sort of cleaning

0:11:420:11:48

the sisters' house, the ugly sisters' house.

0:11:480:11:51

But you guys have the potential to actually perform

0:11:510:11:54

that like you're Cinderella at the ball.

0:11:540:11:56

You need to realise how good you are.

0:11:560:11:57

What are you going to do to try and have that confidence?

0:11:590:12:02

How are you going to put that into practice?

0:12:020:12:04

I think we should just all really kind of bring up our energy levels as well,

0:12:040:12:08

because I think we were all that nervous it took over a little bit.

0:12:080:12:11

What made you so nervous?

0:12:110:12:13

I think just because it was such a big stage

0:12:130:12:17

and everyone was just watching you.

0:12:170:12:19

I think we just panicked a bit.

0:12:190:12:20

-Didn't you think they all sounded good?

-Yeah, they did.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:12:200:12:23

And as an ensemble, their arrangements -

0:12:230:12:25

# Ba ba... # All that stuff and the sound of it

0:12:250:12:28

the sound is great.

0:12:280:12:30

# Oh, baby baby dancing in the moonlight. #

0:12:300:12:34

Both The Peppermints and Activ8 gave solid performances, though one

0:12:390:12:42

of the groups seemed to handle their nerves better than the other.

0:12:420:12:46

Coming up, another two glee clubs go all out to wow the judges.

0:12:460:12:50

That really, really impressed me.

0:12:500:12:53

The first half was quite good, the second half was fantastic.

0:12:530:12:56

You guys looked like you were having the time of your life up there.

0:12:560:12:59

Good afternoon, everybody!

0:13:040:13:06

ALL: Hi!

0:13:060:13:08

Welcome to Glee Club auditions.

0:13:080:13:10

Next up, we've got Allsorts, an all-girl group from Milton Keynes.

0:13:100:13:14

Well done. Give yourselves a round of applause.

0:13:140:13:18

I remember these girls quite well. They're an interesting mix of ages.

0:13:180:13:22

ALL GIGGLE

0:13:220:13:24

ALL: Allsorts.

0:13:240:13:25

Is this because you are all sorts of different people in all sorts of different clothes?

0:13:250:13:29

ALL: Yeah!

0:13:290:13:30

You look lovely today!

0:13:300:13:31

Well, if you're ready to do it, I think the judges are ready to see you perform.

0:13:310:13:36

Right, let's go and do it then. This way.

0:13:360:13:38

# My heart's a stereo

0:13:410:13:44

# It beats for you so listen close

0:13:440:13:47

# Hear my thoughts in every note

0:13:470:13:48

# Oh oh...

0:13:480:13:50

# Make me your radio

0:13:510:13:54

# Turn me up when you feel low

0:13:540:13:57

# This melody was meant for you

0:13:570:14:00

# So sing along to my stereo

0:14:000:14:02

# In the blink of an eye

0:14:020:14:05

# I was falling from the sky

0:14:050:14:09

# You took my breath away

0:14:090:14:13

# And my heart started speeding

0:14:130:14:16

# And my lungs started breathing

0:14:160:14:20

# And a voice in my head started screaming

0:14:200:14:23

# I'm aliii-ii-iiive!

0:14:230:14:27

# You're like a laserlight burning down

0:14:270:14:31

# Burning down on me

0:14:310:14:34

# You're like a laserlight burning down

0:14:340:14:39

# Burning down on me

0:14:390:14:41

# You make me feel good you make me feel safe

0:14:410:14:45

# You make me feel like I could live another day

0:14:450:14:49

# You make me feel good you make me feel safe

0:14:490:14:53

# You know I wouldn't have it any other way

0:14:530:14:56

# Have it any other way

0:14:560:14:59

# All the night I was falling from the sky

0:14:590:15:05

# Ooooh... #

0:15:050:15:08

Are they quite good at taking on feedback that you give them?

0:15:140:15:16

-They're fine. I'm really harsh.

-Are you?

-In a nice way, but they...

0:15:160:15:20

They can't be harsher than you.

0:15:200:15:22

-In a nice way. They get it. It's just, you know.

-Yeah.

0:15:220:15:26

Once you got into Laserlight, it was rock solid.

0:15:260:15:30

And the performance was there, the energy was there,

0:15:300:15:34

the joy was there, the sound was great, the solos were wonderful.

0:15:340:15:39

-Er, yes, yes!

-Thank you so much.

0:15:390:15:43

The dynamics of your personnel are great.

0:15:430:15:45

Like big sisters, little sisters. It's like a unit. It actually works.

0:15:450:15:50

And the song choice, I have to say, is very clever.

0:15:500:15:52

If your teacher thought that up, good on them.

0:15:520:15:56

High five!

0:15:560:15:58

Yeah, I think you'll be a tough one to decide on, for sure.

0:15:580:16:01

I loved it. I absolutely loved it.

0:16:010:16:03

You were giving all this sassiness, I was, like, singing along with you.

0:16:030:16:06

But you sounded brilliant. You look amazing. I loved it. It was amazing.

0:16:060:16:10

Thank you so much.

0:16:100:16:13

Were you happy with how the performance went?

0:16:130:16:15

ALL: Yes!

0:16:150:16:16

Nothing you would have liked to have done differently,

0:16:160:16:18

or anything you could have improved or...?

0:16:180:16:20

ALL: No.

0:16:200:16:21

-That was the best you've ever done it?

-Yes.

0:16:210:16:23

I think one of the challenges for them as a group is actually

0:16:230:16:26

managing to marry together three really grown-up girls.

0:16:260:16:30

It looks like two bands, almost. It's like the kiddie band and the grown-up band.

0:16:300:16:34

And that's why it's a great name - Allsorts - cos they are.

0:16:340:16:37

But they just made it for me, with those songs.

0:16:370:16:41

Whether they'll be able to transfer that every single time,

0:16:410:16:44

to make sure all eight of them still feel like they're integrated

0:16:440:16:49

and not just two separate entities...

0:16:490:16:52

# Ooooh... #

0:16:520:16:54

Up next, we've got Bittersweet, who really impressed me

0:17:010:17:05

when I first saw them in Glasgow.

0:17:050:17:06

They were really polished and committed to their performance.

0:17:060:17:09

-Hello.

-ALL:

-Hi!

-How are we doing today?

-We're good.

0:17:120:17:17

-Show me these. Now I hear... Oh, is that you?

-Yeah!

0:17:170:17:21

-Ohh! You're all got your faces on them!

-Yeah!

0:17:210:17:24

-Material girls...

-We're in the zone.

-In the zone. Good luck.

-Thank you.

0:17:240:17:30

# Some boys kiss me Some boys hug me

0:17:450:17:49

# I think they're OK

0:17:490:17:52

# If they don't give me proper credit I just walk away

0:17:520:17:59

0:18:360:18:41

APPLAUSE

0:18:420:18:44

-Good job.

-They had great fun.

0:18:440:18:46

SHE LAUGHS

0:18:460:18:48

Bittersweet. Wow! Fantastic! I really loved that performance.

0:18:480:18:53

I loved the choreography, I thought you were really original. I loved the vocals. The... # Da-da... #

0:18:530:18:59

I'll be singing that for days now.

0:18:590:19:01

-Brilliant! You are absolutely a glee club.

-ALL:

-Thank you.

0:19:010:19:06

What makes you guys a glee club and what makes you excellent at it is you bring the third element to it.

0:19:060:19:11

The singing was really very, very good. The choreography was fantastic, it was sharp.

0:19:110:19:17

But you acted as well. You performed.

0:19:170:19:20

It was like watching a little, mini performance from a musical. It was really, very very good.

0:19:200:19:25

The only complaint I have is that you didn't bring a magazine with my face on the cover.

0:19:250:19:30

-We'll make you one.

-We will.

-I'll hold you to that.

0:19:300:19:34

-We'll mail it in the post.

-ALL LAUGH

0:19:340:19:36

I thought it was brilliant.

0:19:360:19:39

The one thing about when you're performing is when you're having fun

0:19:390:19:43

the people that are watching you instantly feel that relaxation.

0:19:430:19:47

You guys looked like you were having the time of your life up there.

0:19:470:19:50

It reminded us of something from Legally Blond,

0:19:500:19:53

that kind of femininity and Girl Power. Brilliant!

0:19:530:19:56

We really enjoyed it. We'll all be doing this now.

0:19:560:19:59

-We really liked your performance.

-THEY LAUGH

0:19:590:20:05

THEY SQUEAL

0:20:050:20:06

-You girls were great! How much fun was that?

-ALL:

-Wonderful!

0:20:100:20:14

-You really did enjoy yourselves, didn't you?

-Yeah!

0:20:140:20:18

-So if you were to go through to the next round, will you make David a magazine?

-Yes!

0:20:180:20:23

-And Carrie and John and Joe and everybody else.

-All of them. You can have one.

0:20:230:20:27

-Excellent. And me?

-Yeah!

0:20:270:20:29

That to me is what a glee club is all about, actually.

0:20:290:20:32

-They've given it theatrical panache.

-They've thought about a show.

0:20:320:20:35

-Professional, slick, polished, engaging, animated.

-Yes.

0:20:350:20:40

-It was good.

-The minute the music started they were in it.

-Really engaged. No weak ones

0:20:400:20:45

That's the thing about the acting, they didn't come out of character at all throughout the whole thing.

0:20:450:20:50

-# Material!

-Living in a material world! #

0:20:500:20:55

Four of today's acts have now performed for the judges.

0:21:000:21:03

And with four groups still to see, let's take a moment to remind ourselves why we're all here.

0:21:030:21:10

Comic Relief works hard to support people who are leading incredibly difficult lives

0:21:100:21:15

by funding projects all over Africa as well as right here in the UK.

0:21:150:21:19

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

0:21:200:21:24

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

0:21:240:21:29

The donations that you make will help vulnerable people from all walks of life at home and abroad.

0:21:320:21:38

You can help make a huge difference.

0:21:380:21:40

To find out how you could do something "funny for money",

0:21:400:21:43

get a grownup and visit the CBBC website at...

0:21:430:21:50

and follow the link to Comic Relief.

0:21:500:21:53

Thank you.

0:21:530:21:55

What's the funny joke?

0:22:000:22:02

Next up, we've got Domino.

0:22:020:22:03

I saw this group in London

0:22:030:22:05

and their energy left me feeling they had tons of potential.

0:22:050:22:08

How are you feeling today?

0:22:130:22:14

All TALK AT ONCE

0:22:140:22:16

-Exhilarated!

-Exhilarated? LAUGHTER

0:22:160:22:18

-Have you ever done anything this big before?

-ALL: No!

0:22:180:22:23

-Have you ever been in a television studio?

-ALL: No.

0:22:230:22:26

So if it goes wrong today, who are you going to blame it on?

0:22:270:22:31

You!

0:22:310:22:32

CLAPPING

0:24:100:24:12

Yeah!

0:24:120:24:15

-Happy with that?

-Yes!

0:24:150:24:16

Performing when you're dancing at that level and singing,

0:24:170:24:20

it's going to be really difficult to get the two things together.

0:24:200:24:23

But you did it really, really well.

0:24:230:24:25

Vast amounts of energy. I loved the energy.

0:24:250:24:28

My one little comment would be - for your soloists

0:24:280:24:31

I think you need to dance less,

0:24:310:24:32

so we get that tuning pitch perfect.

0:24:320:24:35

But apart from that, fantastic performance.

0:24:350:24:37

Thank you.

0:24:370:24:39

High energy and a lot of movement. A lot of choreography.

0:24:390:24:42

Maybe a little bit too much, and it did affect your singing.

0:24:420:24:46

But, overall, there's such an infectious energy about you

0:24:460:24:49

that I really like.

0:24:490:24:51

I thought it was fantastic.

0:24:520:24:53

Erm, it just made me smile from beginning to end.

0:24:530:24:57

And, your two eye contact...

0:24:570:24:58

When there's just four people in a room,

0:24:580:25:01

it's quite difficult to perform and hold the eye contact.

0:25:010:25:04

And you - well everybody did - but you two, I couldn't take my eyes off you two.

0:25:040:25:08

So well done. It was a brilliant performance.

0:25:080:25:10

-Big sigh of relief?

-THEY SIGH

0:25:110:25:14

You're all sweating, you obviously put in a lot of energy.

0:25:140:25:17

How did it go?

0:25:170:25:19

-It went really well.

-We put all of our effort into it, so...

0:25:190:25:21

Are you at all worried because they did say that

0:25:210:25:24

some of the soloists were perhaps dancing a little bit too much.

0:25:240:25:27

You took a solo - what did you think of that?

0:25:270:25:29

It's a good thing, really, for me, because we all know what we need to do,

0:25:290:25:34

and what we need to work on to make it even better the next time.

0:25:340:25:37

That's a great way of thinking about it. Well done.

0:25:370:25:40

# Don't blame it on sunshine! #

0:25:400:25:42

Right, next up we have Figure of 8 from Chelmsford.

0:25:470:25:51

-And some of them you may recognise from both series one and two.

-OK.

0:25:510:25:55

# ..I had everything... #

0:25:560:25:59

Great! Thank you very much! And relax. How do you think you did?

0:26:030:26:07

Yeah. Good.

0:26:070:26:08

Good! That's what I like to hear.

0:26:080:26:10

DESCENDING VOCALISATION

0:26:150:26:18

-How are you feeling today?

-THEY ANSWER IN AFFIRMATIVE

0:26:180:26:22

-Looking forward to this?

-Yeah! Definitely, yeah.

0:26:220:26:25

And with your song, there is a lot of emotion in it.

0:26:250:26:27

How do you sort of get motivated, prepared, to perform this song?

0:26:270:26:31

We just try to enjoy ourselves really.

0:26:310:26:33

And just make sure that what we're feeling, is portrayed on stage.

0:26:330:26:36

Any group thing you need to do before you go in?

0:26:360:26:39

Have a little high-five, or whatever?

0:26:390:26:42

ALL: Figure of 8! Figure of 8!

0:26:420:26:44

Figure of 8 - nice!

0:28:130:28:17

CLAPPING

0:28:190:28:21

-Yeah!

-Yay!

0:28:210:28:22

You have a really good ensemble sound.

0:28:260:28:29

You are what a glee club are.

0:28:290:28:32

My question to you is, why did you not choose a more complex song?

0:28:320:28:36

With such strong singers, such ability to do good harmonies,

0:28:360:28:41

I'd like to have heard more layering, more complexity,

0:28:410:28:43

because I think you're capable of more.

0:28:430:28:45

It makes me want to ask - are you confident enough?

0:28:450:28:49

I think we're really confident in all of our abilities.

0:28:490:28:53

We were all thinking that if we did get through,

0:28:530:28:55

that we would show you the more complex harmonies -

0:28:550:28:58

because we are capable of doing that,

0:28:580:28:59

but we thought we'd do the first round simple

0:28:590:29:02

and just show you, you know, what we can do.

0:29:020:29:04

Stick to the safe stuff.

0:29:040:29:06

-That's a nice enough comment.

-Constructive.

0:29:060:29:09

You sang a really rhythmic song, that requires real tightness,

0:29:090:29:14

and if one of you is out it really shows.

0:29:140:29:17

And none of you were out. You were really, really locked.

0:29:170:29:20

ALL: Thank you!

0:29:200:29:21

Your timing and your rhythm was fantastic.

0:29:210:29:24

Guys, I liked you from the beginning.

0:29:240:29:26

I liked you because you sing and perform as a unit.

0:29:260:29:30

I think you're strong vocally.

0:29:300:29:32

I think your faces are very animated and engaging,

0:29:320:29:35

and that's really what a performance is about as well.

0:29:350:29:38

Because you can sing well and have absolutely no expression on your face

0:29:380:29:41

and you lose your audience.

0:29:410:29:43

I think whatever we throw at you, you guys will deliver well.

0:29:430:29:48

-They said nice comments, didn't they?

-LAUGHTER

0:29:480:29:50

-Are you happy with that?

-So happy!

0:29:500:29:53

I think it was really special because, erm,

0:29:530:29:56

last year the main things we needed to work on was gelling as a group.

0:29:560:30:00

And they mentioned something about our rhythm being out,

0:30:000:30:02

which were the two things they just mentioned as being really good.

0:30:020:30:05

You've solved those problems!

0:30:050:30:07

Yeah, we've definitely improved.

0:30:070:30:09

-Now you've just got to make it more complicated!

-LAUGHTER

0:30:090:30:11

I'll be interested to see if they do have strong soloists.

0:30:110:30:14

-Yeah, I think they're in there.

-The one that sang first was good.

0:30:140:30:17

They just played it safe. It just felt a little bit safe.

0:30:170:30:21

They've also got a couple of people who aren't giving anything facially.

0:30:210:30:24

Mmm.

0:30:240:30:26

And you've got the front ones who are giving SO much,

0:30:260:30:28

that it makes the back ones look, like, not interested.

0:30:280:30:31

Is it too safe for them to get through, that's the thing?

0:30:310:30:35

# Hold on. #

0:30:350:30:38

Domino performed with full-on energy

0:30:430:30:46

and Figure of 8 showed the judges what a glee club truly is.

0:30:460:30:48

But did they play it too safe?

0:30:480:30:51

Next, the final two groups take to the stage.

0:30:510:30:53

Will GR8 Expectations and LS8 do enough to gain a place in the heats?

0:30:530:30:58

I loved it! I am thoroughly entertained.

0:30:580:31:01

You are terrifyingly brilliant.

0:31:010:31:03

From the minute you started singing, I was... No!

0:31:030:31:05

From the minute you turned around, I was, "Wow! This is incredible."

0:31:050:31:09

Right, next up we have Great Expectations from North Yorkshire.

0:31:120:31:17

Saw these guys in Manchester.

0:31:170:31:18

-Good morning, everybody.

-Good morning!

0:31:180:31:21

'They are very much a glee club.'

0:31:210:31:24

You talk about a wall of sound -

0:31:240:31:26

when they were singing, they were like the Niagara Falls of sound.

0:31:260:31:31

# He stands like a statue becomes part of a machine... #

0:31:310:31:34

Um, it was a bit overkill.

0:31:340:31:36

And I'm hoping that they have learned to blend better.

0:31:360:31:40

But I think they have potential, so, they're back.

0:31:400:31:43

Do you have any sections of your routine you're worried about?

0:31:430:31:45

-Or that haven't quite gone to plan in rehearsals?

-ALL: Not really.

0:31:450:31:49

Just if the boys spin like last time.

0:31:490:31:51

-What happened when the boys spin?

-We keep forgetting to do it!

0:31:540:31:57

-LAUGHTER

-So remember to spin! Yep.

0:31:570:32:00

Just before you go in, do you have any warm-up that you like to do?

0:32:000:32:04

# Fish and chips, fish and chips, fish and chip chip chips

0:32:040:32:08

# Fish and chips, fish and chips fish and chip chip chips

0:32:080:32:10

# Fish and chips, fish and chip chip chips. #

0:32:100:32:12

# Ever since I was a young boy, I've played the silver ball

0:32:200:32:24

# From Soho down to Brighton I must have played them all

0:32:240:32:27

# But I ain't seen nothing like him in any amusement hall... #

0:32:270:32:30

-Spin! Yes!

-# That deaf, dumb and blind kid

0:32:300:32:32

# Sure plays a mean pinball

0:32:320:32:36

# He stands like a statue

0:32:410:32:43

# Becomes part of the machine

0:32:430:32:45

# Feeling all the bumpers

0:32:450:32:47

# Always playing clean

0:32:470:32:49

# He plays by intuition

0:32:490:32:50

# The digit counters fall

0:32:500:32:52

# That deaf, dumb and blind kid

0:32:520:32:54

# Sure plays a mean pinball

0:32:540:32:56

# He's a pinball wizard

0:33:030:33:05

# There's go to be a twist

0:33:050:33:07

# A pinball wizard

0:33:070:33:09

# Got such a supple wrist

0:33:090:33:13

# How do you think he does it?

0:33:150:33:17

# I don't know

0:33:170:33:18

# What makes him so good?

0:33:180:33:22

# Ohhh ohhh ohhh

0:33:220:33:24

# I thought I was The Bally table king

0:33:250:33:29

# But I just handed my pinball crown to him

0:33:290:33:35

# To him

0:33:360:33:40

# To him. #

0:33:400:33:46

CLAPPING

0:33:480:33:52

-Did they do you proud?

-Yes, they did.

0:33:520:33:54

You look like a glee club, and I love your energy.

0:33:550:33:58

Those are the two biggest things for me that are great positives.

0:33:580:34:02

Lots of big voices.

0:34:020:34:03

One thing you really need to look at, which is amongst the girls -

0:34:030:34:07

some of you have got those big belty chest voices,

0:34:070:34:09

and then you've got the higher girls with their head voices,

0:34:090:34:12

who sound...

0:34:120:34:13

-HIGH-PITCHED:

-# A little bit like this... #

0:34:130:34:15

Those two sounds are SO different,

0:34:150:34:17

you've got to work out how you can get those voices to blend together.

0:34:170:34:21

It would be much more powerful if you could do that.

0:34:210:34:24

-Altogether, I found you really entertaining.

-ALL: Thank you.

0:34:240:34:27

I like the fact you started with the boys. That's really strong.

0:34:270:34:30

But it's when you all came in together on

0:34:300:34:32

-"He stands like a statue." Suddenly it was like...

-HE CLICKS FINGERS

0:34:320:34:35

Ping! The lights go on - I get it that's your sound.

0:34:350:34:38

That harmony sound.

0:34:380:34:40

It's a great sound.

0:34:400:34:42

That's your strength, really play that up.

0:34:420:34:45

I was not expecting that at all, but I'm saying it was brilliant.

0:34:450:34:48

I loved it from the minute you started singing I was, wo... No!

0:34:480:34:51

From the minute you turned around, I was, "Wow! This is incredible."

0:34:510:34:54

-What's your name?

-Will.

0:34:540:34:56

-Your facial expressions were amazing!

-Thank you.

0:34:560:34:59

The whole time I couldn't stop looking at you.

0:34:590:35:01

Girls, you were brilliant. And the two boys, as well. It was fantastic.

0:35:010:35:04

Loved it.

0:35:040:35:05

They said some lovely things to you!

0:35:070:35:09

What did you make of all their comments?

0:35:090:35:11

They were so complimentary. Like, they were really nice, like...

0:35:110:35:15

It was just generally, really kind of them to say those things.

0:35:150:35:18

-And you spun!

-ALL: Yes!

0:35:180:35:21

Oh, excellent. I'm very pleased. You did fantastically well.

0:35:210:35:24

And you had lovely comments. So go and chill out.

0:35:240:35:27

ALL: Thank you.

0:35:270:35:29

One of my issues was that they were over-singing. Continuously.

0:35:290:35:32

And in a small room, at one point, I was just, like - whoa, too much!

0:35:320:35:37

I hope they learn to blend better.

0:35:370:35:38

They should know - actually, some of us are really shouty-shouty sounding,

0:35:380:35:43

and some of us are really holy-sounding,

0:35:430:35:45

and those voices don't match.

0:35:450:35:47

-They looked amazing.

-Yeah. The energy.

0:35:470:35:50

I felt like I was at the theatre watching them.

0:35:500:35:52

So I really enjoyed that.

0:35:520:35:53

# To him! #

0:35:530:36:00

Right, next up we have LS8 from Leeds

0:36:080:36:11

and I think you guys might enjoy this.

0:36:110:36:13

Very theatrical, very unusual.

0:36:130:36:15

I chose them and brought them back for that reason.

0:36:150:36:18

# Let's do the time-warp again... #

0:36:180:36:22

LAUGHTER

0:36:220:36:24

So you've got a big character part How do you prepare yourself for that?

0:36:260:36:29

You have to get like really creepy, so you get into weird positions.

0:36:290:36:33

So is that what your leader told you - to be all creepy and weird?

0:36:330:36:36

-Yeah.

-All of you have got to be creepy and weird?

-Yeah!

0:36:360:36:38

They do creepy and weird very well.

0:36:580:36:59

They're creepy and weird kids. No, they're not!

0:36:590:37:02

# It's astounding

0:37:100:37:13

# Time is...fleeting

0:37:130:37:17

# Madness...takes its toll

0:37:170:37:21

# But listen...closely

0:37:210:37:24

# Not for very much...longer

0:37:240:37:26

# I've got to...keep control

0:37:270:37:32

# It's just a jump to the left

0:37:320:37:35

# And then a step to the right

0:37:350:37:38

# Put your hands on your...hips

0:37:380:37:40

# And bring your knees in tight

0:37:400:37:43

# But it's the pelvic thrust

0:37:430:37:46

# That really drives you insane

0:37:460:37:49

# Let's do the time-warp again

0:37:490:37:54

# Let's do the time-warp again

0:37:540:37:59

# Well, I was walking down the street just having a think

0:38:000:38:03

# When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink

0:38:030:38:06

# He shook-a me up he took me by surprise

0:38:060:38:08

# He had a pickup truck and those devil's eyes

0:38:080:38:11

# He stared at me and I felt a change

0:38:110:38:14

# Time meant nothing never would again

0:38:140:38:17

# Let's do the time-warp again

0:38:170:38:21

Let's do the time-warp again. #

0:38:210:38:27

-Happy with that one?

-Really happy. I'm always happy with them.

0:38:320:38:34

Well, for me that was Triple A Star with knobs on!

0:38:380:38:42

On Glee Club, we have never mentioned speak singing before,

0:38:420:38:46

that was one of the best performances of speak singing I've ever heard. Fantastic!

0:38:460:38:51

Everyone on that stage performing at 150%, no weak links.

0:38:510:38:57

-I loved it! I am thoroughly entertained.

-ALL:

-Thank you.

0:38:570:39:02

I normally hate it when young people do that song,

0:39:020:39:05

because you've got to be completely over the top and totally unselfconscious.

0:39:050:39:09

And at your age most people aren't, but you guys were. And you, John, were brilliantly demented leading it.

0:39:090:39:16

And the rest of you matched him. You were terrifyingly brilliant.

0:39:160:39:21

-ALL:

-Thank you.

-I was breathing for you there.

0:39:210:39:24

I was out of breath for you. You're not even out of breath, that's incredible.

0:39:240:39:28

And the vocals as well. For how much dancing you were doing,

0:39:280:39:31

you could hardly tell that you were even dancing, there were no shakes or bumps or anything.

0:39:310:39:35

-ALL:

-Thank you.

-Well done.

0:39:350:39:37

APPLAUSE

0:39:370:39:39

How do you feel about being called "demented"?

0:39:390:39:42

ALL LAUGH

0:39:420:39:45

It's the first time I've heard it. ALL LAUGH

0:39:450:39:49

It's... It was great because I was demented.

0:39:490:39:52

Have a little celebration. You deserve it. Well done.

0:39:520:39:56

I want to join in.

0:39:560:39:58

# Let's do the time-warp! #

0:39:580:40:00

I'm just going to keep doing... # Let's do the time-warp again! #

0:40:000:40:04

-They were brilliant.

-Yeah.

0:40:040:40:05

-They were fantastic!

-I was on the edge of my seat.

0:40:050:40:08

-I was like... It made you want to stand up and dance.

-Yeah.

0:40:080:40:11

-That's what it's all about, a glee club.

-Yeah, totally.

0:40:110:40:15

If I knew the routine, I'd have been up there with them.

0:40:150:40:18

# Let's do the time-warp again! #

0:40:180:40:22

Here's a quick reminder of the glee clubs that have preformed today.

0:40:320:40:36

# Don't matter what they say to keep you up at night... #

0:40:400:40:43

# Let's go dancing in the moonlight

0:40:460:40:49

# Take me down like I'm a domino... #

0:40:490:40:52

# You're like a laserlight coming down, coming down on me... #

0:40:560:41:02

# Cos we are living in a material world

0:41:060:41:08

# And I am a material girl... #

0:41:080:41:12

# Don't blame it on the sunshine

0:41:140:41:16

# Don't blame it on the moonlight

0:41:160:41:18

# Don't blame it on the good times blame it on the boogie... #

0:41:180:41:21

# Some day, somebody's gonna make you want to turn around

0:41:250:41:27

# And say goodbye... #

0:41:270:41:29

# That deaf dumb and blind kid

0:41:310:41:33

# Sure plays a mean pinball... #

0:41:330:41:36

# Let's do the time-warp again... #

0:41:410:41:45

OK, so the last of our groups have now performed,

0:41:530:41:56

but remember there are only five places left in the studio heats.

0:41:560:42:00

Let's join our experts to see who from the final Judges Audition show has made it through.

0:42:000:42:05

-I loved these guys.

-Nothing like them.

0:42:070:42:10

-They are stand alone.

-Yep. They're through.

-Agreed. Fantastic.

0:42:100:42:14

-I thought they were brilliant.

-Yeah. I love those too. Definitely.

-Top three for me.

0:42:140:42:20

Yep. Yep. OK.

0:42:200:42:22

-Who's a definite no for you.

-Yeah, a definite no.

0:42:220:42:25

-Really?

-Yeah.

-They're a definite yes.

-We loved them.

0:42:250:42:28

One can go through and two have to go.

0:42:280:42:31

I found there was something a little more genuine about them for some reason over them.

0:42:310:42:35

-OK, they'll go. So now it's down to these two. Of these two?

-Yeah?

0:42:350:42:41

-They should go through. Is that a yes from you, John?

-It's yes from me.

0:42:410:42:44

-I haven't said yes.

-Why are we arguing this? There's two people saying yes, one saying no.

0:42:440:42:50

You're out-ruled.

0:42:500:42:52

Overruled, outnumbered! BOTH LAUGH

0:42:520:42:55

Grumpy.

0:42:550:42:57

The five glee clubs going through to the studio heats are...

0:43:030:43:06

And finally...

0:43:180:43:20

So we now have our final five acts who've made it to the studio heats

0:43:260:43:30

and are one step closer to the live shows.

0:43:300:43:33

Thanks to Carrie, David, John and all our celebrity guests.

0:43:330:43:37

Join me next time when I will be joined by Sam and Mark, yah,
