Good evening, Exeter!

0:01:160:01:18

CHEERING

0:01:180:01:21

-Hi, guys.

-Hi!

0:01:230:01:25

So, Amaria, we are finally in Exeter

0:01:250:01:27

at Radio 1's Big Weekend.

0:01:270:01:29

-How are you feeling?

-I'm excited, I'm amongst all the stars

0:01:290:01:32

and I'm just going to smash it and I'm just grateful to be here.

0:01:320:01:35

So, you are going to be performing in the same place as people like

0:01:350:01:39

Bastille, Mumford & Sons, Coldplay...

0:01:390:01:42

How does that make you feel?

0:01:420:01:44

Just overwhelmed really, because, like,

0:01:440:01:46

I remember a few months back when I was just waiting for it

0:01:460:01:48

and now I'm finally here, it's just amazing.

0:01:480:01:51

There's not nerves, but I know when I get on

0:01:510:01:53

there's going to be real butterflies,

0:01:530:01:54

but I'm going to calm down.

0:01:540:01:56

Since the show, Amaria, how have things changed for you?

0:01:560:01:59

Well, when I go to, like, shopping centres or, like,

0:01:590:02:01

to the shop or something, I just get stopped in the street randomly.

0:02:010:02:04

Do you get people coming up to you, like, asking for autographs

0:02:040:02:07

and pictures and stuff?

0:02:070:02:09

Yeah, but my mum gets more than me.

0:02:090:02:11

ALL LAUGH

0:02:110:02:13

Jasmine, you guys BOTH worked so hard

0:02:130:02:16

to get Amaria to this point today,

0:02:160:02:17

how are you feeling, are you nervous for her?

0:02:170:02:19

Oh, I'm definitely nervous, definitely proud.

0:02:190:02:21

All different emotions because it's such a big event for her to be at,

0:02:210:02:24

but it's where she's supposed to be.

0:02:240:02:26

I'm not shocked that she's here, and yeah, I'm quite excited.

0:02:260:02:30

Well, Amaria, it's going to be an amazing experience,

0:02:300:02:33

but before we get started,

0:02:330:02:34

let's take a little look at how you got here.

0:02:340:02:36

When 12-year-old Amaria arrived in the music mansion,

0:02:390:02:43

she made a big impression with her unique style.

0:02:430:02:45

# When your legs don't work like they used to before

0:02:450:02:49

# And I can't sweep you off of your feet... #

0:02:520:02:55

# I just keep on making... #

0:02:560:02:58

But she wasn't the only musical talent in the house.

0:02:580:03:01

# And another one bites the dust... #

0:03:010:03:04

# I swear she's destined for the screen... #

0:03:040:03:08

# My head, it is full of Things that I should've done... #

0:03:080:03:14

# Everything was as fresh as the bright, blue sky... #

0:03:140:03:18

# I got a lump in my throat cos

0:03:180:03:20

# You're gonna sing the words wrong and... #

0:03:200:03:23

# You won't see me fall apart

0:03:230:03:30

# Cos I've got... #

0:03:300:03:31

My biggest rival was Rai-Elle

0:03:310:03:33

because the first time I heard her voice,

0:03:330:03:35

it was very powerful and very, like, gospel.

0:03:350:03:38

# Ah-ooh-ooh

0:03:380:03:41

# Sweet love of mine... #

0:03:410:03:44

Even though I knew that Rai-Elle had a powerful voice,

0:03:440:03:46

I knew that I'd win.

0:03:460:03:49

-No stopping...

-ALL:

-Yes!

0:03:500:03:51

But Amaria wasn't alone in her battle.

0:03:510:03:54

That's what I'm talking about, Lisa.

0:03:540:03:56

With her every step of the way was her mum, Jasmine.

0:03:560:03:59

It was funny when my mum was in the zorb ball.

0:04:010:04:03

-Ooh!

-SHE LAUGHS

0:04:030:04:05

Cos at the end she got stuck and she needed help getting out.

0:04:050:04:08

I can't get out, I don't think.

0:04:080:04:10

THEY LAUGH

0:04:100:04:12

The funniest Mum Challenge that my mum took part in

0:04:120:04:14

has to be the musical bears,

0:04:140:04:17

when her and Bernice were fighting over one chair.

0:04:170:04:20

LAUGHTER

0:04:200:04:22

# Well, I've got thick skin and an elastic heart... #

0:04:220:04:28

Amaria took to the stage in two amazing sing-offs

0:04:280:04:31

in the music mansion.

0:04:310:04:32

When I was in the sing-off, it was very nerve-racking.

0:04:320:04:35

But when I just heard the music start, I was just me.

0:04:350:04:38

# Sometimes it's hard

0:04:380:04:42

# To follow your heart... #

0:04:420:04:46

# So, come on, let it go... #

0:04:460:04:49

But it was in the series semifinal at the recording studio

0:04:490:04:52

when she showed what she was REALLY capable of.

0:04:520:04:55

Singing James Bay - Let It Go at the recording studio,

0:04:550:04:58

I felt comfortable and I felt like I was at home

0:04:580:05:00

cos that's the songs that I like to sing.

0:05:000:05:03

Congratulations, Amaria, you're through.

0:05:040:05:06

Bang! Bang!

0:05:060:05:07

'When I was told about the final, my head was all over the place,'

0:05:070:05:10

but I was so happy.

0:05:100:05:12

# Red lips and rosy cheeks... #

0:05:120:05:14

'In the final, Amaria took to the stage twice

0:05:140:05:17

'in front of a studio audience and a panel of industry experts...'

0:05:170:05:21

# Why don't you remember...? #

0:05:210:05:28

'..before the winner was finally announced.'

0:05:280:05:31

It's Amaria.

0:05:310:05:33

-CHEERING

-Me?

0:05:330:05:35

Are you real?

0:05:350:05:37

'When I won, all that was going through my head was,

0:05:370:05:40

' "Radio 1's Big Weekend." '

0:05:400:05:42

I was just so happy that I won.

0:05:420:05:44

-How are you feeling?

-I'm still shocked!

0:05:440:05:47

I'm not really nervous about my big performance because this is what

0:05:480:05:51

I love doing and I'm just going to bring it, either way.

0:05:510:05:54

# When will I see you again? #

0:05:540:06:03

Here in Exeter,

0:06:060:06:07

Amaria will be performing on the BBC Introducing Stage,

0:06:070:06:11

which has helped launch the careers of superstars like

0:06:110:06:13

Florence And The Machine, Catfish And The Bottlemen and Jake Bugg.

0:06:130:06:17

Stepping out here is a huge opportunity, but a scary one.

0:06:170:06:20

But luckily for Amaria, she won't be going it alone.

0:06:200:06:22

Accompanying her is our very own music maestro, David Tench.

0:06:220:06:26

With only a few hours to go till her big moment,

0:06:260:06:28

it's time for a quick sound check.

0:06:280:06:30

-Hi, Amaria.

-Hi, David.

0:06:300:06:31

-How you doing?

-I'm all right, thank you.

0:06:310:06:33

-This is you later.

-Yeah.

0:06:330:06:35

-Take your position.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:06:370:06:38

-Does it feel good to be on this stage?

-Yeah, I'm very excited.

0:06:380:06:42

It's got a cool backdrop, too.

0:06:420:06:43

BBC Music Introducing, introducing YOU.

0:06:430:06:45

-Yeah!

-Do you feel ready now to perform here on the stage?

0:06:450:06:49

Yeah, I feel ready, I'm just pumped.

0:06:490:06:51

I just want to perform and then just show the audience

0:06:510:06:53

that I'm not a quiet little girl, I've actually got, like, a talent.

0:06:530:06:56

That's great.

0:06:560:06:58

Well, Amaria's really confident right now,

0:06:580:07:00

but later, when we come to perform, you know,

0:07:000:07:02

it can get you a little bit nervous cos in these daytime gigs,

0:07:020:07:06

you can really see the whites of the audience's eyes.

0:07:060:07:09

If you choke at one of these things, if Amaria forgets her words...

0:07:090:07:13

she's just got to keep going.

0:07:130:07:14

And I'll be right behind her

0:07:140:07:16

and I'll be offering all kinds of support.

0:07:160:07:18

I'm going to be back here, so if you need me for anything, then you...

0:07:180:07:22

You can just take your time, you can turn around,

0:07:220:07:24

catch my eye if you want to slow down, take a break,

0:07:240:07:27

whatever you want to do...

0:07:270:07:28

If you want to talk to the crowd,

0:07:280:07:29

-then I'm here to support you and back you...

-Right.

0:07:290:07:32

And Ben as well on guitar, so it's all going to be good.

0:07:320:07:34

If I do get nervous during the performance,

0:07:340:07:37

do you have any tips, like, how it can go away, or, like...?

0:07:370:07:41

Just remember that it's live, right?

0:07:410:07:43

-Yeah.

-And there's so many acts performing here

0:07:430:07:46

at the festival over the weekend and they're all going to make mistakes.

0:07:460:07:49

-Yeah.

-So, it's part of that festival vibe

0:07:490:07:52

to just accept that things might go a bit wrong, you know?

0:07:520:07:56

You can't fail.

0:07:560:07:57

-These people are here to see you...

-Yeah.

-..and they fully support you.

0:07:570:08:00

We know what we're doing, right? We know those songs inside out.

0:08:000:08:03

-It's going to be great.

-Thank you.

0:08:030:08:05

So, as Amaria gets to work on her final preparations with David,

0:08:060:08:10

it's time for us to check out

0:08:100:08:11

one of the other acts on the Main Stage here in Exeter,

0:08:110:08:14

and she certainly knows how to rock a festival crowd...

0:08:140:08:16

The amazing Jess Glynne. Nice hair, Jess!

0:08:160:08:19

# Oh, oh, oh

0:08:190:08:20

# I learned to wave goodbye

0:08:200:08:23

# And, no, I'm not alone

0:08:360:08:39

Put your hands in the air. Whoo!

0:08:490:08:52

# Learn to forgive, learn to let go

0:08:520:08:55

# Hey, hey!

0:08:550:08:56

-# Everyone trips

-Everyone falls

0:08:560:08:59

# So don't be so hard on yourself, no... #

0:09:000:09:02

OK, break it down.

0:09:020:09:03

# Cos I'm just tired of marching on my own

0:09:030:09:07

-# Kind of frail

-I feel it in my bones

0:09:070:09:11

# Won't let my heart My heart turn into stone

0:09:110:09:15

# So don't be so hard on yourself, no

0:09:150:09:19

# Don't be so hard on yourself, no... #

0:09:200:09:22

I want to hear you sing!

0:09:220:09:24

# Learn to forgive, learn to let go

0:09:240:09:26

# Everyone trips, everyone falls Everyone, everyone falls

0:09:280:09:31

# So don't be so hard on yourself, no

0:09:320:09:35

# Cos I'm just tired of marching on my own

0:09:360:09:39

# Kind of frail I feel it in my bones

0:09:400:09:43

# Won't let my heart My heart turn into stone

0:09:430:09:47

# So don't be so hard on yourself, no... #

0:09:470:09:51

I want to hear you sing it... Shout it! Put your hands in the air.

0:09:510:09:55

-# Kind of frail

-Whoo!

0:09:550:09:57

-# I feel it in my bones

-Hey!

0:09:570:09:59

# Won't let my heart My heart turn into stone

0:09:590:10:04

# So don't be so hard on yourself, no... #

0:10:040:10:06

# I got-got Got what it takes now. #

0:10:070:10:11

So, Amaria, I know you're a fantastic dancer,

0:10:110:10:14

but what is your plan today?

0:10:140:10:15

Well, cos of the songs that I'm singing,

0:10:150:10:18

I'm going to be energetic,

0:10:180:10:19

but I'm going to be moving around the stage,

0:10:190:10:21

coming forward and just, like...

0:10:210:10:23

..letting the audience know, like, what I'm about and stuff.

0:10:240:10:27

Where do you get your confidence from?

0:10:270:10:29

Well, I get a lot of my confidence from my mum,

0:10:290:10:31

but at the same time, I get some of my confidence from Kevin.

0:10:310:10:34

I know you've been doing some training with Kevin,

0:10:340:10:37

how's that been going?

0:10:370:10:38

Well, he's been really helpful and he's been, like,

0:10:380:10:40

just giving me instructions, like, not to look down when I'm singing

0:10:400:10:44

and just, like, bring my audience into the song

0:10:440:10:46

so they can feel it as well as I do.

0:10:460:10:48

To help Amaria get prepared, she met up with Kevin Adams,

0:10:490:10:52

our games guru on the show.

0:10:520:10:54

But he's also a legendary choreographer,

0:10:540:10:56

who's worked with Take That and Mariah Carey.

0:10:560:10:59

This is a massive opportunity for Amaria because this is

0:10:590:11:01

a great platform to launch an artist.

0:11:010:11:04

Today, with Amaria, I'm going to be working on distraction techniques,

0:11:040:11:07

how she copes with things going wrong

0:11:070:11:09

and remembering that performance is everything.

0:11:090:11:12

This is the last time I get to see Kevin before my big performance,

0:11:120:11:15

so I'm really anxious and nervous.

0:11:150:11:18

-How are you, good?

-I'm all right, thank you.

0:11:180:11:20

-Are you excited?

-Yeah.

0:11:200:11:21

Ooh, it's almost time, it's almost time!

0:11:210:11:24

The one thing that I need to work on is my eye contact because I'm always

0:11:240:11:28

looking at the ground when I perform,

0:11:280:11:30

I need to start looking at the audience.

0:11:300:11:31

OK, let's work on your stage presence, let's get cracking.

0:11:310:11:34

-Yeah.

-OK?

-Yeah.

0:11:340:11:35

Kevin's going to be working on three key performance points.

0:11:350:11:39

First lesson - making sure your face engages with the audience.

0:11:390:11:42

# Let's get out of this town... #

0:11:420:11:45

That face... Go back, go back!

0:11:450:11:47

-It's too slow.

-You may go on stage and Dave may be playing the song

0:11:470:11:50

-at a different pace...

-Yeah.

0:11:500:11:52

Something may have gone wrong.

0:11:520:11:53

The face... You can't give the game away,

0:11:530:11:56

you've got to keep your face in the game.

0:11:560:11:58

# Wildest dreams Ah-ahhh-oh. #

0:11:580:12:02

When that music went off, you did the face!

0:12:030:12:05

The face. The music went off, I don't want to see the face.

0:12:050:12:08

# He's so bad but he does it so well

0:12:080:12:11

# I can see... #

0:12:110:12:12

That facial expression is good.

0:12:120:12:15

# Say you see me in hindsight Tangled up with you... #

0:12:150:12:18

Next up - giving your all to a performance.

0:12:180:12:21

When you came out there, you went back to safe mode.

0:12:210:12:24

-You've changed gears...

-Mm.

-..and you can really see it.

0:12:240:12:28

I'm worried.

0:12:280:12:29

She's going to have to deliver her best performance

0:12:290:12:31

when she first gets there.

0:12:310:12:33

When you come this way...

0:12:330:12:35

HE SINGS: Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift

0:12:350:12:38

# Burning it down! #

0:12:380:12:40

You've got to give more.

0:12:400:12:42

Nerves play a part, whether you want to admit it or not,

0:12:420:12:44

so you can't then go into your shell.

0:12:440:12:46

I need to get her back to that 95% performance before the Big Weekend.

0:12:460:12:52

# Burning it down... #

0:12:520:12:54

Bend your knees.

0:12:540:12:55

# Someday when you leave me I bet these memories

0:12:550:12:59

# Follow you around... #

0:12:590:13:02

The music's not on. You've got to start singing.

0:13:020:13:05

Finally - dealing with distractions.

0:13:050:13:08

# Not a single word was said... #

0:13:080:13:11

-Stop laughing.

-No, no, no, no, wait, wait, wait, wait!

0:13:110:13:14

-# No final kiss... #

-You see, this is the thing.

0:13:140:13:16

-She's distracting me!

-But it's distraction training!

0:13:160:13:20

Ten minute slot, Radio 1's Big Weekend, you have to sing.

0:13:200:13:24

Distraction training is really important

0:13:240:13:26

because audiences will shout anything.

0:13:260:13:28

-AMARIA SINGS YELLS:

-Ah-whoo! Sing it, baby!

0:13:280:13:33

The arm, the arm!

0:13:330:13:35

You have to just be able to look out front and deliver a performance.

0:13:350:13:39

-SHE SINGS

-You're my favourite!

0:13:390:13:42

I've got you on Instagram, Amaria!

0:13:420:13:45

Amaria! Ah-ha!

0:13:450:13:47

His distractions are making it harder,

0:13:470:13:51

but I know that's going to happen at Radio 1's Big Weekend,

0:13:510:13:53

so I just have to concentrate and let him do it now

0:13:530:13:56

so I know what to expect when I'm at the show.

0:13:560:13:58

Why are you ignoring me?!

0:13:580:14:00

-Amaria!

-HE WAILS

0:14:000:14:03

I voted for you!

0:14:030:14:06

Don't turn your back on me!

0:14:060:14:08

Amaria!

0:14:080:14:12

Massive improvement.

0:14:120:14:14

Absolutely massive.

0:14:140:14:15

Confidence, looking at people,

0:14:150:14:17

he's brought out a completely different Amaria.

0:14:170:14:20

# Oh... #

0:14:200:14:22

Good.

0:14:220:14:23

# Wildest dreams Ah-ahhh-oh. #

0:14:230:14:29

You remembered to change your facial expression.

0:14:290:14:31

You remembered to smile.

0:14:310:14:33

You remembered all of the things that I told you to do.

0:14:330:14:35

Really, really good.

0:14:350:14:36

I just want you to remember

0:14:360:14:37

that I want those gears to still be in that direction.

0:14:370:14:40

-Yeah.

-Good. How d'you feel?

-Good.

0:14:400:14:42

-Yeah? You do?

-Yeah.

0:14:420:14:43

-Good work.

-Excellent.

0:14:460:14:47

# I got-got Got what it takes now. #

0:14:470:14:51

Not long to go now till Amaria takes to the stage, but there's just time

0:14:510:14:54

for us to check out another act from the Big Weekend...

0:14:540:14:57

The incredible Ellie Goulding.

0:14:570:14:59

0:16:330:16:38

# Touch me like you do Ta-ta-touch me like you do. #

0:16:380:16:43

Brilliant stuff. With the clock counting down to her performance,

0:16:490:16:53

it's time for Amaria to change into her stage gear.

0:16:530:16:55

So, Amaria, you definitely look the part today.

0:16:550:16:58

Tell me a little bit about what you're wearing.

0:16:580:17:00

Well, I'm wearing, like, a beige tracksuit with, like,

0:17:000:17:04

this matching jacket and brand-new white shoes,

0:17:040:17:07

so I have to try and keep them clean.

0:17:070:17:09

You have always had an amazing style,

0:17:090:17:11

where do you think you get your style from?

0:17:110:17:14

To be honest, I don't really know, it's just, like...

0:17:140:17:16

Like, when I watch, like, um, videos of other artists

0:17:160:17:20

and what they wear, this gives me an idea what I would like to wear.

0:17:200:17:23

You're definitely looking the part, Amaria,

0:17:230:17:25

how did you put this outfit together?

0:17:250:17:27

Well, I have a stylist, her name is Ayishat, and she, like,

0:17:270:17:32

looked at what I like to wear and then she just put it out for me.

0:17:320:17:35

It's a kind of urban look and this is what I like to wear,

0:17:350:17:38

and I feel comfortable.

0:17:380:17:40

I think it's a really unique outfit, Amaria,

0:17:400:17:42

and I think it looks really, really good on you.

0:17:420:17:44

-I think you'll look fab on the stage.

-Thank you.

0:17:440:17:46

To make a huge impression at the Big Weekend,

0:17:460:17:48

Amaria had to be styled like a superstar.

0:17:480:17:51

So she enlisted the help of celebrity stylist, Ayishat Akanbi,

0:17:510:17:55

who's worked with big names such as Labrinth.

0:17:550:17:57

# I wished you the best of... #

0:17:570:18:03

I think for an artist to have the right look is really key.

0:18:030:18:06

You can have a certain sound, but then if the image doesn't match up,

0:18:060:18:09

audiences can find it hard and confusing

0:18:090:18:12

and you just don't connect right.

0:18:120:18:15

Ayishat's style is very unique.

0:18:150:18:17

It will make a difference to my performance if I look the part

0:18:170:18:19

because if I look the part, then you know I'm going to smash it.

0:18:190:18:22

-Good to meet you, Amaria.

-You, too.

0:18:220:18:24

And you must be Mum.

0:18:240:18:26

-Good to meet you, too.

-Yeah, I am.

-Is Labrinth easy to work with?

0:18:260:18:29

Labrinth is easy to work with.

0:18:290:18:31

I'd say he's my easiest client

0:18:310:18:32

because I've worked with him for so long.

0:18:320:18:34

So, now, when I shop for him, it's like shopping for myself.

0:18:340:18:37

You look like you have a really unique style, tell me about yours.

0:18:370:18:40

Well, when I dress myself, I don't just put two and two together,

0:18:400:18:43

I have to think about if that goes with that

0:18:430:18:46

or if that goes with that.

0:18:460:18:47

I literally think I was you at 13 so...

0:18:470:18:51

I've styled you almost thinking about my 13-year-old self

0:18:510:18:53

and what I'd like to look like and I think you might like it as well.

0:18:530:18:56

-You take that...

-Thank you.

0:18:580:18:59

-Wicked, all right, see you soon.

-Bye.

0:18:590:19:02

-You look amazing.

-Thank you.

0:19:040:19:06

Outfit one, a new take on monochrome.

0:19:060:19:09

-How do you feel?

-I like it.

0:19:090:19:11

I feel ready to, like, sing.

0:19:110:19:13

-Yeah, OK, yeah. It looks like it.

-LAUGHTER

0:19:130:19:15

Yeah, it looks really good.

0:19:150:19:17

I feel very comfortable and it's not tight,

0:19:170:19:20

so I can walk around without stretching and stuff.

0:19:200:19:24

Look two, rocking it in double denim.

0:19:250:19:27

So, how do you feel in this one?

0:19:270:19:29

I like it, but I wouldn't wear it.

0:19:290:19:31

-Oh, I like this one.

-How about maybe we remixed it a little bit?

0:19:310:19:34

-Put your arm in.

-How do you feel now, babe?

0:19:340:19:37

Yeah, I like it more.

0:19:370:19:39

I like it now.

0:19:390:19:40

-You like it now?

-Yeah.

0:19:400:19:42

Oh, this one looks really cool.

0:19:430:19:45

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-And for her third look...

0:19:450:19:47

an urban/military mashup.

0:19:470:19:49

I like this. This is her.

0:19:490:19:51

This suits her. This is her kind of character, it suits her character,

0:19:510:19:54

it's who she is.

0:19:540:19:55

It's decision time.

0:19:550:19:56

What you thinking?

0:19:590:20:01

I like the beige one more.

0:20:010:20:03

-I feel more comfortable in the beige.

-OK.

0:20:030:20:05

All right.

0:20:050:20:07

Well, here is the final look.

0:20:070:20:08

Good luck, I think you're going to kill it.

0:20:080:20:10

-Thank you.

-No worries.

0:20:100:20:12

This is the outfit that I've chosen. I'm going to smash it.

0:20:120:20:14

I really like this outfit.

0:20:140:20:16

-She just gets me.

-Come on.

0:20:160:20:18

Give me a high five. You know you look good, I love it.

0:20:180:20:21

It's just you, she got it spot-on. Spot-on, I love it.

0:20:210:20:24

# I got-got Got what it takes now. #

0:20:270:20:29

Before finally taking to the stage,

0:20:330:20:35

there's just enough time for Amaria to get some top industry advice.

0:20:350:20:39

Craig David has sold over 13 million records

0:20:390:20:41

and is a legend on the UK garage scene.

0:20:410:20:44

# You will never have never heard nothin' like this

0:20:450:20:48

# Better listen up otherwise you're gonna miss

0:20:480:20:49

# When the bassline drops you know what to do

0:20:490:20:52

# Baby... #

0:20:520:20:53

Is there any tips you can give Amaria about performing?

0:20:530:20:56

Um, all I'd say is enjoy it.

0:20:560:21:00

Like, when you're on stage, it's your moment to shine.

0:21:000:21:03

And usually when it seems like there's loads of people,

0:21:030:21:06

don't sort of focus on thinking how many people

0:21:060:21:08

or how many people are listening at home,

0:21:080:21:10

just enjoy your moment.

0:21:100:21:11

You're there, you've got this far because

0:21:110:21:14

you're that talented...

0:21:140:21:15

Just have fun with it and the crowd will have fun off of that,

0:21:150:21:17

-d'you know what I mean?

-Have you had any tricky or difficult

0:21:170:21:20

moments on stage?

0:21:200:21:21

Do you know what, there's been moments where...

0:21:210:21:24

OK, this is a good little... A little bit of experience

0:21:240:21:26

that will help you out as well.

0:21:260:21:28

For some reason the music stopped.

0:21:280:21:29

Um... Out of the...

0:21:290:21:31

And this time it was, like, "OK, we've got options here."

0:21:310:21:34

One, we stop with it and make a big moment of it,

0:21:340:21:38

or we own it and go in and do some sort of a cappella freestyle,

0:21:380:21:42

which is what I ended up doing,

0:21:420:21:44

and then it ended up being one of the most, sort of,

0:21:440:21:46

memorable moments for me and for the fans because they were like,

0:21:460:21:49

"Oh, wow, that thing where you went into that a cappella part,

0:21:490:21:51

"that was really cool,"

0:21:510:21:53

like it was all part of the whole thing.

0:21:530:21:54

So I'd say for you again, anything you're going to do on stage,

0:21:540:21:57

do it with confidence cos the crowd don't know what you're going to do.

0:21:570:22:01

Do you have any tips getting the crowd hyped up?

0:22:010:22:04

Yeah, I'd say you can always kind of engage the crowd and be like...

0:22:040:22:08

shout them out.

0:22:080:22:09

If you're here in Exeter, shout out Exeter, do you know what I mean?

0:22:090:22:12

They always love feeling like they're part of it,

0:22:120:22:14

but at the same time, as a performer,

0:22:140:22:17

I always still feel that it's your energy that gets them hyped,

0:22:170:22:20

do you know what I mean?

0:22:200:22:21

So... Cos sometimes you overthink it,

0:22:210:22:22

"Oh, I've got to say shout-outs..." Do what you're doing and do it well,

0:22:220:22:26

people are going to love it because

0:22:260:22:27

they're hyped that you're going to be on stage anyway.

0:22:270:22:30

They're like, "What?!" You'll get them hyper.

0:22:300:22:32

Um... You're going to kill it. I'm so excited.

0:22:320:22:34

After the brilliant advice from Craig,

0:22:350:22:37

Radio 1 royalty pops by to wish Amaria luck.

0:22:370:22:40

When you go on stage to DJ, what's it like?

0:22:400:22:42

Um... Well, for instance,

0:22:420:22:44

I've been out already today DJing on the Main Stage

0:22:440:22:47

and that's A LOT of people.

0:22:470:22:49

Um... I'm actually better with a large group of people

0:22:490:22:53

-than a small group.

-Yeah.

0:22:530:22:55

If it was ten people, that would freak me out,

0:22:550:22:57

but because there's, like, thousands...it's just people,

0:22:570:23:01

-do you know what I mean?

-Yeah.

0:23:010:23:02

You can't see their eyes, so it kind of works better if it's a big crowd.

0:23:020:23:06

I used to get so nervous before just doing anything with crowds,

0:23:060:23:10

but over the years at Radio 1 I've kind of become...not nervous,

0:23:100:23:15

I still get the real adrenaline and I pace up and down a lot beforehand

0:23:150:23:19

and just, like, think about... I don't know what, but just pace.

0:23:190:23:23

And, um... And then, as you know, before you know it,

0:23:230:23:26

you're on and you're off and it's over in a flash, so...

0:23:260:23:29

I think you've just got to enjoy it

0:23:290:23:31

-and not be terrified of it, you know?

-Yeah.

0:23:310:23:33

Do you have any tips to make it out in the music industry?

0:23:330:23:36

I would say always be nice to people,

0:23:360:23:38

always turn up on time and just try your hardest.

0:23:380:23:42

And just getting your stuff out there.

0:23:420:23:43

You know, with the internet now,

0:23:430:23:45

it's much easier to just have a platform, to just, like,

0:23:450:23:48

completely flood it with stuff and I think that's what needs to be done.

0:23:480:23:52

But you've got a great stepping stone

0:23:520:23:54

just by winning this competition, you know?

0:23:540:23:56

-Thank you.

-So, now you've won, what's the next step?

0:23:560:23:59

Where do you want to go next?

0:23:590:24:00

Well, I want to continue singing and I want to be, like, big.

0:24:000:24:04

-Big?

-How big?

0:24:040:24:06

-Big.

-Adele big?

0:24:060:24:08

-Bigger.

-Bigger?

-Yeah.

0:24:080:24:10

And is that possible? How can you be bigger than Adele?

0:24:100:24:13

Amaria's in such great company at this festival and if she's lucky,

0:24:140:24:18

one day she could end up like these guys.

0:24:180:24:20

Yes, just before Amaria goes on,

0:24:200:24:22

0:24:250:24:29

# I remember us alone Waiting for the light to go

0:24:390:24:42

# Don't you feel that hunger? I've got so many secrets to show

0:24:420:24:47

# When I saw you on that stage I shivered with the look you gave

0:24:470:24:51

# Don't you hear that rhythm? Can you show me how we can escape?

0:24:510:24:56

# Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

0:24:560:24:58

0:25:290:25:32

0:25:460:25:49

# Oh, oh, give me till the night Oh, oh, give me till the night

0:25:490:25:54

# Oh, no, no

0:25:540:25:55

# It's you that I've been waiting to find

0:25:550:25:58

# Oh, oh, give me till the night Oh, oh, give me till the night

0:25:580:26:04

CHEERING Whoo!

0:26:180:26:20

# I got-got Got what it takes now. #

0:26:200:26:22

So, this is it.

0:26:220:26:23

After months of battling it out at the music mansion

0:26:230:26:25

and earning a place at one of the UK's biggest music events,

0:26:250:26:29

it's nearly time to perform.

0:26:290:26:30

You're just about to go on, how are you feeling?

0:26:330:26:35

I'm pumped, I'm excited,

0:26:350:26:36

I just want to perform and just smash it.

0:26:360:26:38

I'm so proud of you for going up there

0:26:380:26:40

and I know you're going to enjoy it so, so much.

0:26:400:26:42

You've just got to remember - just have fun,

0:26:420:26:44

because at the end of the day, that's why you're here.

0:26:440:26:46

-You ready?

-Yeah.

0:26:460:26:48

-OK. Have fun, good luck.

-Thank you.

0:26:480:26:50

'It's all come down to this one moment for Amaria

0:26:510:26:53

'as she takes to the stage.'

0:26:530:26:55

If this doesn't go well for Amaria,

0:26:550:26:57

it will be a real shame because it's possibly the worst thing,

0:26:570:27:00

getting up on stage and choking.

0:27:000:27:02

Some familiar faces have come to support her.

0:27:020:27:05

This is it, Amaria, this is your moment.

0:27:050:27:08

-Don't forget to say... Speak.

-Um... Hi, guys, my name's Amaria.

0:27:140:27:17

I was recently on a show called "Got What It Takes?"

0:27:170:27:20

and I won it, so that's the reason why I'm here.

0:27:200:27:23

-CHEERING

-Um...

0:27:230:27:25

# Let's get out of this town

0:27:350:27:38

# Drive out of the city Away from the crowd

0:27:380:27:42

# I thought, "Heaven can't help me now"

0:27:420:27:45

# Nothing lasts forever

0:27:450:27:48

# Say you'll remember me

0:27:480:27:51

# Standing in a nice dress Staring at the sunset, babe

0:27:510:27:56

# Red lips and rosy cheeks

0:27:560:27:58

# Say you'll see me again Even if it's just in your

0:27:580:28:04

# Wildest dreams, ah-ah-ohh

0:28:040:28:10

# Wildest dreams, ah-ah-ohh

0:28:110:28:18

# Wildest dreams, ah-ah-ohh

0:28:190:28:24

# Wildest dreams, ah-ah-ohh. #

0:28:270:28:33

CHEERING

0:28:330:28:36

Amaria is smashing it and as she gets into her stride,

0:28:360:28:39

more and more people start coming over to check out her performance.

0:28:390:28:43

Come on, come on, come on. Kill it.

0:28:510:28:54

# From walking home and talking loads... #

0:28:540:28:56

Good girl.

0:28:560:28:58

# To seeing shows in evening clothes with you

0:29:000:29:06

# Now we're slipping at the edge Holding something we don't need

0:29:070:29:12

# All this delusion in our heads Gonna bring us to our knees

0:29:140:29:20

# So come on, let it go Just let it be

0:29:210:29:29

# Why don't you be you And I'll be me...? #

0:29:290:29:34

-That's all right?

-Yeah.

0:29:340:29:36

Mic's perfect.

0:29:360:29:38

# Trying to push this problem up the hill

0:29:380:29:42

# When it's too heavy to hold

0:29:420:29:47

# Think now's the time to let it slide, slide, slide

0:29:470:29:53

# So come on, let it go And let it be

0:29:530:29:59

# Why don't you be you And I'll be me?

0:30:010:30:07

# And I'll be me. #

AMARIA LAUGHS

0:30:180:30:21

The next song, the last one I'm going to be singing, is Adele,

0:30:210:30:25

Don't You Remember? So I hope you enjoy it.

0:30:250:30:28

Going into the final song,

0:30:280:30:29

the crowd really fills out as Amaria ramps it up with her favourite

0:30:290:30:32

Adele track.

0:30:320:30:33

# When will I see you again?

0:30:330:30:37

# You left with no goodbye Not a single word was said

0:30:370:30:43

# No final kiss to seal any sins

0:30:460:30:51

# I had no idea of the state we were in

0:30:530:30:59

# But I know I have a fickle heart and bitterness

0:31:010:31:05

# And a wandering eye and a heaviness in my head

0:31:050:31:12

# But don't you remember?

0:31:120:31:20

# Baby, please remember me once more

0:31:200:31:27

# Gave you the space so you could breathe

0:31:300:31:33

# I kept my distance so you could be free

0:31:330:31:37

# I hoped that you'd find the missing piece

0:31:370:31:41

# To bring you back to me

0:31:410:31:45

# Why don't you remember?

0:31:450:31:53

# Don't you remember?

0:31:540:32:00

# The reason you loved me before

0:32:000:32:08

# Baby, please remember me once more

0:32:080:32:16

# When will I see you again? #

0:32:180:32:26

Thank you.

0:32:260:32:28

CHEERING

0:32:280:32:30

She's done it.

0:32:300:32:32

Amaria has triumphed at the Big Weekend.

0:32:320:32:34

Go, Amaria!

0:32:360:32:37

It was excellent.

0:32:380:32:40

Everything went to plan.

0:32:400:32:41

I just want to do it again, it was that fun.

0:32:410:32:43

Oh, it was...epic.

0:32:430:32:45

Absolutely epic.

0:32:450:32:47

Amaria! Well done.

0:32:470:32:49

You absolutely smashed it.

0:32:490:32:50

I'm so proud. How do you think it went?

0:32:500:32:52

I think it went great, you know, cos, like, I was pumped.

0:32:520:32:56

As soon as she started making noise and we started playing, she was off.

0:32:560:32:59

And the crowd came to see her...

0:32:590:33:01

I'm so happy for her, it was ace.

0:33:010:33:03

When I watched Amaria's performance,

0:33:030:33:05

it was a little bit emotional for me because obviously when I met Amaria,

0:33:050:33:09

she was really shy and she didn't really talk that much

0:33:090:33:12

and I didn't really, really understand what she was about.

0:33:120:33:14

But now I know her more and she's come so far.

0:33:140:33:17

It's just been amazing to see her grow that much.

0:33:170:33:20

I don't think I've ever known, in all of my time at Radio 1,

0:33:200:33:23

someone who is on the BBC Introducing Stage at the age of 13

0:33:230:33:27

and actually not fazed by it at all.

0:33:270:33:29

She's like, "Yeah, I'm cool."

0:33:290:33:31

Not nervous. That's exactly what you need if you're an artist.

0:33:310:33:34

So that's it. I think it's clear that here at the Big Weekend,

0:33:340:33:38

Amaria absolutely proved she's got what it takes.

0:33:380:33:41

-Thank you.

-CHEERING

0:33:430:33:45

LAUGHTER

0:33:490:33:50

Amaria smashing up the stages all over the UK.

0:33:500:33:53

What have you got to say about that? This all started here.

0:33:530:33:56

-Trust me, it's all on you now, you know what I mean?

-Yeah.

0:33:560:33:59
