THEY SING

0:00:020:00:04

Hundreds auditioned...

0:00:040:00:07

but only eight were chosen...

0:00:070:00:10

THEY SING

0:00:100:00:13

..to battle it out...

0:00:130:00:15

No way.

0:00:150:00:16

Pow.

0:00:160:00:18

..for the ultimate gig...

0:00:180:00:21

I could have the chance to finally make it.

0:00:210:00:23

..but with their mums as the judges...

0:00:230:00:25

Sorry, can I start again?

0:00:250:00:27

I knew from the first note that it wasn't working.

0:00:270:00:30

..and some seriously tough challenges...

0:00:300:00:34

Oh, wow!

0:00:340:00:36

I can't do it.

0:00:360:00:37

-I am a bit upset.

-I'm so sorry.

0:00:370:00:40

..will they still want a career in the music industry...?

0:00:400:00:42

If I'm honest, I don't know, I'm just super scared.

0:00:420:00:45

I literally can't sing that song.

0:00:450:00:46

The competition is really hotting up.

0:00:460:00:48

..when they find out what it's really like?

0:00:480:00:51

-It's brutal, there are no days off.

-You're always being watched.

0:00:510:00:54

-I've completely forgotten them.

-Relax.

0:00:540:00:56

You're always being judged.

0:00:560:00:58

I don't really want to answer that question.

0:00:580:01:01

This is Got What It Takes.

0:01:010:01:03

Why do you think you've got what it takes?

0:01:030:01:05

That's a very tricky question.

0:01:070:01:09

# So come on tell me what's it going to be

0:01:090:01:12

# I've got, got, got what it takes now

0:01:120:01:15

# Are you going to give me Going to make me see

0:01:150:01:18

# I've got, got, got what it takes now

0:01:180:01:21

# Oh, oh...got, got, got what it takes now.

0:01:210:01:26

# Oh, oh...got, got, got what it takes now. #

0:01:260:01:32

Hi, guys, I'm Lauren Platt and this is me in action.

0:01:360:01:39

# Let it go, let it go turn my back and slam the door... #

0:01:390:01:46

I've already had a taste of what it's like to be

0:01:460:01:49

treated like a superstar and I won't lie, it's fun...

0:01:490:01:53

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:530:01:56

..but it's not all celebrity parties,

0:01:560:01:58

luxury homes and staggering bank balances, I can tell you that.

0:01:580:02:01

Lauren, can you come and do the dishes?

0:02:010:02:03

So, if you want to know what it's really like...keep watching.

0:02:040:02:08

Welcome to the music mansion.

0:02:100:02:12

The new home of eight talented young singers and their mums.

0:02:130:02:16

I want to be in the limelight.

0:02:200:02:21

I love being centre of attention.

0:02:210:02:23

When I'm at school, I always sing and I get

0:02:260:02:29

detentions for singing sometimes.

0:02:290:02:33

I'm not really a soft singer.

0:02:330:02:35

I like to go for the big notes.

0:02:350:02:37

I would describe myself as a rock chick.

0:02:370:02:40

I would describe myself as more of a popper than a rocker.

0:02:420:02:46

For me, music isn't just music.

0:02:480:02:50

To me, it's, like, a way of my life.

0:02:500:02:52

My message to the other performers is watch out.

0:02:540:02:57

My dream is that I want to make it out there.

0:02:570:03:01

I think I've got what it takes.

0:03:010:03:03

With everyone here, it's time to reveal what's really at stake.

0:03:070:03:11

Hi, everybody! And welcome to the Got What It Takes headquarters.

0:03:110:03:15

You guys have all done amazingly well to be here

0:03:150:03:18

but for one of you there's an even bigger opportunity.

0:03:180:03:20

And this is so exciting.

0:03:250:03:28

One of you will get to perform on stage...

0:03:280:03:32

at Radio One's Big Weekend.

0:03:360:03:38

Radio One's Big Weekend? I can't believe this.

0:03:520:03:55

I think it will be an amazing opportunity.

0:03:550:03:57

I really want to win now.

0:03:570:03:59

I think it's...game on.

0:03:590:04:01

But to earn that opportunity, you guys have got a lot of hard work

0:04:010:04:04

and some really competitive challenges ahead of you.

0:04:040:04:07

Are you ready? Yeah.

0:04:070:04:09

Let's go.

0:04:090:04:10

I think it's so, so exciting for them and I think it will teach them

0:04:100:04:14

something massive about the industry as well.

0:04:140:04:16

But they do have a long way to go yet.

0:04:160:04:19

# I got, got, got what it takes now. #

0:04:190:04:21

Each episode, only three of the kids will get to

0:04:230:04:25

perform in an end-of-show sing-off.

0:04:250:04:28

And those places can be won in a series of challenges.

0:04:280:04:31

But first, the group will be learning the song with a music maestro -

0:04:320:04:35

David Tench.

0:04:350:04:37

In the music industry, you have to be focused all the time.

0:04:370:04:41

If you drop your guard, then people will always be there to give

0:04:410:04:44

you a bad review. Hi, everyone. Hi.

0:04:440:04:47

I'm kind of used to working with singers and trying to find

0:04:470:04:50

out their strengths and what they're good at and bring out

0:04:500:04:53

the best in them so, hopefully I can do that for all of you.

0:04:530:04:56

So, guys, I'll bet you're dying to find out what your first song is.

0:04:560:05:00

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:05:000:05:01

OK.

0:05:010:05:02

Well, the song you'll be competing to perform this week is...

0:05:020:05:07

Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran.

0:05:070:05:09

Yes!

0:05:090:05:11

# I will be loving you

0:05:110:05:13

# Till we're 70... #

0:05:130:05:19

Thinking Out Loud was Ed Sheeran's second single to hit the number one

0:05:190:05:23

spot and the first track ever to spend a year in the UK top 40.

0:05:230:05:28

# ...hard at 23. #

0:05:280:05:30

But will a love ballad suit everyone in the group?

0:05:300:05:34

-Paddy, you look like you like that one.

-Yeah.

0:05:340:05:37

I know it quite well and I'm very confident how I sing it.

0:05:370:05:42

I don't like that song. I think it's really cringy. I don't know.

0:05:420:05:45

Oh, my gosh.

0:05:450:05:46

I've tried singing this before, performing it,

0:05:460:05:49

and it really didn't go as planned.

0:05:490:05:51

# Darling, I will be loving you till we're 70...

0:05:510:05:59

# And, baby, my heart... #

0:06:030:06:06

I felt kind of happy

0:06:060:06:08

because I'm familiar with that song,

0:06:080:06:11

I sing it all the time.

0:06:110:06:13

# People fall in love in mysterious ways... #

0:06:130:06:18

I love this song and I'm not sure

0:06:180:06:20

whether everyone loved it.

0:06:200:06:22

They didn't all look overly happy about

0:06:220:06:24

the song when I revealed it to them.

0:06:240:06:26

They have to be adaptable otherwise they're not going to make it.

0:06:260:06:29

# Maybe we found love right where we are. #

0:06:290:06:35

APPLAUSE

0:06:370:06:39

Thank you, guys.

0:06:390:06:42

OK, I'm going

0:06:420:06:43

to leave you now but when I come back three of you

0:06:430:06:45

will be performing the song.

0:06:450:06:47

Who's it going to be? Good luck.

0:06:470:06:49

I'll see you later.

0:06:490:06:51

-ALL:

-Bye.

0:06:510:06:53

David Tench is the musical director of The Voice

0:06:530:06:56

and has worked with superstars like Kylie Minogue and Take That.

0:06:560:06:59

OK, guys, I want to get a sense of how you all sing.

0:06:590:07:02

And he wants to see what our eight are capable of.

0:07:020:07:05

For now, I think what we'll do is have you take a line each.

0:07:050:07:08

OK, here's the intro.

0:07:080:07:09

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

0:07:110:07:15

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

0:07:170:07:21

Yeah, good.

0:07:210:07:22

# Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?

0:07:240:07:28

# Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks...? #

0:07:300:07:34

OK.

0:07:340:07:35

# And, darling, I will be loving you

0:07:350:07:40

# Till we're 70. #

0:07:400:07:43

It's so good to have all the singers there right in front of me

0:07:430:07:47

and I can get a real sense of their unique styles.

0:07:470:07:49

I was quite interested to how much confidence each singer had.

0:07:490:07:54

# Well, I'll just keep on making the same mistakes... #

0:07:560:08:01

Yeah, go on, son.

0:08:010:08:02

This Ed Sheeran song, you know, it's...

0:08:020:08:04

it sits more comfortably in some of the singers' voices.

0:08:040:08:07

#..staaaand. #

0:08:070:08:09

What is it?

0:08:090:08:11

Is it...just the high bit, isn't it?

0:08:110:08:12

That's where you just grab the mic. And go, yes!

0:08:120:08:15

I can't sing that note, I'm sorry.

0:08:150:08:16

Go for it, love, you can do it.

0:08:160:08:18

Lola was, straight away, showing that she wasn't

0:08:180:08:20

really into the song.

0:08:200:08:22

# Take me into your loving arms. #

0:08:220:08:25

You know, when you have to sing covers some people don't like to do it.

0:08:250:08:29

But it's a very important part of the industry, you know?

0:08:290:08:32

People go on the Live Lounge on Radio 1 and they're doing covers all the time.

0:08:320:08:35

I just find it difficult, like, doing an exact cover of a song

0:08:350:08:38

because I usually write my own stuff.

0:08:380:08:40

14-year-old Lola is a

0:08:430:08:44

strong minded singer from Kent.

0:08:440:08:46

This is my daughter, Lola.

0:08:470:08:48

No, you said this is Lola, my daughter.

0:08:480:08:51

I'll do it again. This is my daughter, Lola.

0:08:510:08:53

I think I should start actually.

0:08:530:08:55

And she's already an experienced songwriter.

0:08:550:08:58

Music's huge in my life.

0:08:580:08:59

I mean, writing music is all I do.

0:08:590:09:02

# Do you remember last summer Because I remember it clearly... #

0:09:020:09:07

When I'm writing music I feel like I go somewhere else almost.

0:09:080:09:13

At the auditions she made a big impression singing one of her

0:09:130:09:16

own tracks.

0:09:160:09:17

# Never made sense the way you

0:09:170:09:19

# Tell me you miss me

0:09:190:09:21

# And then you turn it right around,

0:09:210:09:23

# Yeah, you turn it right around... #

0:09:230:09:25

But how will she cope covering someone else's?

0:09:280:09:30

She really knows what she wants

0:09:300:09:32

and she really knows what she doesn't want.

0:09:320:09:34

I'm not this evil stroppy teenager who, like,

0:09:340:09:37

-comes in with...

-Really? Sorry!

-Just cut that out.

0:09:370:09:41

LAUGHTER

0:09:410:09:45

There are things we can do to, sort of, coolify it,

0:09:450:09:48

make it a little less cheesy.

0:09:480:09:49

You know, with different accompaniment,

0:09:490:09:51

this can have a completely different feel.

0:09:510:09:53

I just find it hard to put my own

0:09:530:09:55

spin on it, which I'm going to have to work at.

0:09:550:09:58

# I got, got, got what it takes now. #

0:09:580:10:01

Breaking into the music industry definitely isn't easy

0:10:020:10:06

but is it glamorous, once you have?

0:10:060:10:08

Yo, we're Rudimental! Have you got what it takes?

0:10:080:10:11

The lifestyle is not as glamorous as it looks.

0:10:110:10:14

It's um, some very early hours.

0:10:140:10:17

Is it glamorous?

0:10:170:10:19

No, it's definitely not glamorous in the beginning, either.

0:10:190:10:21

I've got a son at home who I haven't probably seen for the last

0:10:210:10:25

two and a half weeks and that breaks my heart.

0:10:250:10:27

It's also a lot of hard work and you've got to be ready to

0:10:270:10:29

put in that hard work, otherwise it's not going to pay off.

0:10:290:10:33

Each episode, two end-of-show sing-off spots are up for grabs

0:10:340:10:37

in a music industry challenge, and it's time for the first.

0:10:370:10:41

We've got a message from Lauren.

0:10:410:10:44

'Hey, guys. Sometimes you might be asked to perform in a way that's'

0:10:440:10:47

completely out of your comfort zone.

0:10:470:10:49

I know you're all aspiring solo artists but in today's challenge,

0:10:490:10:52

we're going to see if you can cut it in a group.

0:10:520:10:54

# La, la, la... #

0:10:540:10:57

THEY LAUGH

0:10:570:11:00

# Yeah, come on. #

0:11:000:11:01

Judging today's challenge is someone who knows the highs

0:11:010:11:03

and lows of being in a group -

0:11:030:11:05

Bradley McIntosh from '90s pop sensations S Club 7.

0:11:050:11:09

# DJ's got this party started, there's no end in sight

0:11:090:11:12

# Everybody's moving to the rhythm that's inside... #

0:11:120:11:16

S Club had four number ones and a number-one selling album

0:11:160:11:20

but most of it happened before any of our eight were born.

0:11:200:11:23

Hey, guys. How you doing? My name's Bradley. Have you guys heard of S Club 7?

0:11:230:11:27

ALL: Yeah.

0:11:270:11:28

Right, cool. So we released our first single in 1998.

0:11:280:11:31

I was 16 years old and we beat Madonna to number one, which was amazing.

0:11:310:11:34

That was incredible. Incredible feeling for all of us.

0:11:340:11:37

So how was it, being so young?

0:11:370:11:38

You're going to be away from your parents, away from your friends,

0:11:380:11:41

especially if you're travelling around the world.

0:11:410:11:43

That's one of the toughest things that I found being in the group.

0:11:430:11:46

What was it like when you finished the group?

0:11:460:11:48

Cos you've just come off this wild rollercoaster

0:11:480:11:50

adventure for the past five years,

0:11:500:11:52

it does hit you a little bit and you go, you know, well - what next?

0:11:520:11:56

One of the biggest mistakes that some people make is thinking

0:11:560:11:58

that, "If I leave school early, I know what I'm going to do.

0:11:580:12:01

"It's definitely going to happen. I'm definitely going to make it."

0:12:010:12:04

I mean, that's not realistic. We never know how things are going to turn out.

0:12:040:12:07

So always have something to fall back on.

0:12:070:12:09

Bradley made me realise it's not all fun and games.

0:12:090:12:12

I never really thought about it, like, how you can be so well-known

0:12:120:12:15

and famous and then you go back to just living a normal life.

0:12:150:12:18

Now we've got all the serious stuff out of the way,

0:12:180:12:20

we're going to do something a little bit fun right now. So I've got a challenge for you.

0:12:200:12:24

The kids' first industry challenge is to form two new pop groups

0:12:240:12:28

and do their own versions of one of Bradley's biggest hits.

0:12:280:12:32

One, two, three, four.

0:12:320:12:33

# DJ got the party started, there's no end in sight

0:12:350:12:39

# Everybody's moving to the rhythm that's inside

0:12:390:12:43

# It's a crazy world but tonight's the right situation

0:12:430:12:49

# Don't get left behind

0:12:490:12:51

# Don't stop moving, can't you feel the music

0:12:510:12:55

# DJ's got us going round, round

0:12:550:12:59

# Don't stop moving, find your own way to it

0:12:590:13:03

# Listen to the music

0:13:030:13:06

# Taking you to places that you've Never been before

0:13:060:13:12

# Baby, yeah, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, woooh. #

0:13:120:13:18

ALL: Woo!

0:13:180:13:22

Let's get going. You ready?

0:13:220:13:24

Come on!

0:13:240:13:28

The eight singers have been split into two groups.

0:13:280:13:30

Group one is Paddy, Rai-Elle Lola and Amaria.

0:13:300:13:35

# DJ's got the party started, there's no end in sight

0:13:350:13:38

-# Everybody moving to..#

-That's her.

0:13:380:13:41

THEY LAUGH

0:13:410:13:44

Group Two is Becky, Lily, Matt, and Evan.

0:13:440:13:47

When it goes, # DJ's got us going... #

0:13:470:13:50

-Then we all stop and one of us goes # Around, round... #

-Yeah.

0:13:500:13:54

Later, Bradley will be picking one winner from each group,

0:13:540:13:58

based on their teamwork, input to the song and their performance.

0:13:580:14:02

-# Don't get left behind... #

-Oh!

-Yeah.

0:14:020:14:05

Being in a group is really hard. Everybody has different styles

0:14:050:14:08

and trying to find a part of the song that's going to

0:14:080:14:10

complement your style is really what they are trying to figure out now.

0:14:100:14:14

# Don't get left behind... #

0:14:140:14:15

-So you've got to...up a few notches above her.

-Because you're singing quite low, so...

0:14:150:14:19

While the groups try to work out their versions of the song...

0:14:190:14:22

# Don't stop moving to the S Club beat... #

0:14:220:14:26

..Bradley has caught up with the mums.

0:14:260:14:28

How do you feel? What are your thoughts about your kids getting into, you know,

0:14:280:14:31

getting into the music industry?

0:14:310:14:33

It does concern me a lot - the media. And how people react.

0:14:330:14:37

It is really tough.

0:14:370:14:39

You have to be kind of mentally strong to be able to take

0:14:390:14:41

a lot of that criticism from different people.

0:14:410:14:44

The main thing is to have your support. That's your part to play.

0:14:440:14:48

You've got to make sure that they've got that support base at home.

0:14:480:14:51

Always run back to mum.

0:14:510:14:52

That's what I did. I always ran back to my mum or dad! You know!

0:14:520:14:55

Both groups have prepared a version of Bradley's number-one hit.

0:14:590:15:02

But now, they have to perform it to him.

0:15:020:15:05

My objective is to find one member from each group, which is going to

0:15:050:15:08

be really tough and I've got to say, I don't envy Simon Cowell one bit!

0:15:080:15:12

First to the stage are Evan, Becky, Matt and Lily.

0:15:150:15:19

OK, guys.

0:15:200:15:21

When you're ready.

0:15:230:15:24

One, two, three, four.

0:15:260:15:28

# DJ's got the party started, there's no place in sight

0:15:280:15:32

# Everybody's moving to the # rhythm that's inside

0:15:320:15:36

# It's a crazy world but tonight's the right situation

0:15:360:15:40

# Don't get left behind

0:15:400:15:44

# Don't stop moving, can you feel the music

0:15:440:15:48

# DJ's got us going around, 'round

0:15:480:15:53

# Don't stop moving, find your own way to it

0:15:530:15:56

# Listen to the music

0:15:560:15:58

# Taking you to places that you've never been before

0:15:580:16:03

# Baby now. #

0:16:030:16:08

Brilliant!

0:16:100:16:11

Wicked. That was awesome.

0:16:110:16:14

It's a solid performance from the first group.

0:16:140:16:16

We rocked that.

0:16:160:16:18

I think we did quite well, yeah.

0:16:180:16:20

Yeah.

0:16:200:16:21

Hoping to better it are Amaria, Lola, Rai-Elle and Paddy.

0:16:220:16:26

OK, guys. Take a deep breath.

0:16:260:16:29

Ready when you are.

0:16:290:16:30

# DJ's got the party started there's no end in sight

0:16:330:16:38

# Everybody's moving to the rhythm that's inside

0:16:380:16:43

# It's a crazy world but tonight's the right situation

0:16:430:16:50

# Don't get left behind

0:16:500:16:53

# Don't stop moving, can you feel the music

0:16:530:16:57

# DJ's got us going around, 'round

0:16:570:17:02

# Don't stop moving, find your own way to it

0:17:020:17:07

# Find... # Sorry!

0:17:070:17:10

# That you've never seen before

0:17:100:17:12

# Baby now. #

0:17:120:17:17

Cool, cool. That's wicked. That was really, really good.

0:17:190:17:22

Really, really good.

0:17:220:17:23

I was a bit upset.

0:17:250:17:27

I think it went OK but if I didn't forget my words, it would have gone better.

0:17:270:17:31

-You done well.

-Don't worry. It was fine.

0:17:310:17:34

I think it was really good.

0:17:340:17:35

Paddy really, really wants to be a singer.

0:17:350:17:38

He really wants the opportunity.

0:17:380:17:40

But I think it's a cut-throat industry.

0:17:400:17:43

I hope he can accept that

0:17:430:17:44

there'll probably be many knockbacks.

0:17:440:17:48

12-year-old Paddy from Lancashire only started singing three years ago.

0:17:480:17:52

And he hasn't stopped since.

0:17:520:17:54

Patrick sings generally everywhere.

0:17:540:17:57

In the car.

0:17:570:17:59

# Tossed it in the trash, you did... #

0:17:590:18:02

In the bath, in the shower, on the toilet.

0:18:020:18:05

HE HUMS

0:18:050:18:07

At the auditions, Paddy give a powerful rendition of one of his favourite songs.

0:18:070:18:12

# Take a bullet straight through my brain

0:18:120:18:16

# Yes, I would die for you, baby... #

0:18:160:18:18

But there is one area of his game that still needs work.

0:18:200:18:23

My worst thing when I'm performing would probably be forgetting words.

0:18:230:18:28

I think Patrick needs to work on just his confidence, really. Believing in himself.

0:18:280:18:33

Despite forgetting his words, Paddy is still in the running.

0:18:390:18:43

Bradley is going to pick one individual from each group

0:18:430:18:46

who's impressed him the most.

0:18:460:18:48

Both groups are really good but I'm going to have to pick a good

0:18:480:18:51

all-rounder and there's two people that I think...

0:18:510:18:54

..I've got them.

0:18:550:18:56

The two he chooses will get to perform in the end-of-show sing-off.

0:18:580:19:03

This has got to be one of the hardest things I've ever done.

0:19:030:19:06

Seeing you sing, I mean, there's no doubt about it -

0:19:060:19:08

every single one of you has got a future.

0:19:080:19:11

Based on everything that I saw today, from group one...

0:19:150:19:18

..I'm going to pick Matt.

0:19:240:19:26

Well done.

0:19:260:19:27

But from group two...

0:19:310:19:32

..I went with Lola. Everyone give a round of applause. Well done.

0:19:400:19:44

I was really shocked, because everyone did amazing

0:19:450:19:48

and I really didn't think I'd get it.

0:19:480:19:51

-Well done!

-Well done.

0:19:530:19:55

It was quite disappointing.

0:19:550:19:58

Cos I was quite confident.

0:19:580:19:59

I think Matt deserved it. I think he was really good

0:19:590:20:01

and he stood out from the rest of the group.

0:20:010:20:04

I know that the song I'm going to be singing

0:20:060:20:08

isn't one that I particularly love.

0:20:080:20:11

But I'm really excited, and I'm happy that I won.

0:20:110:20:14

There could easily be a future star there, there's a lot of talent

0:20:140:20:17

flowing around with those guys. I mean, who knows,

0:20:170:20:19

at the end of the day, success is... It all comes down to the public.

0:20:190:20:22

# I got, got, got what it takes now. #

0:20:240:20:26

It's the end of a long first day.

0:20:270:20:29

But energy is still high in the music mansion.

0:20:290:20:33

Lights, action. Action! That would be...

0:20:330:20:35

That made sense. Can you tell? Lights, camera rolling.

0:20:350:20:38

Lights, camera rolling. Action!

0:20:380:20:41

This is Paddy. And this is Matt.

0:20:410:20:44

We are in Matt's room rehearsing Thinking Out Loud

0:20:440:20:46

by Ed Sheeran, it's going pretty well so far.

0:20:460:20:48

-Yeah.

-Matt and Lola won the challenges.

0:20:480:20:50

-I'm tired. It's tiring, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:20:500:20:54

# Na, na, na, na, na, na. #

0:20:540:20:55

# People fall in love in mysterious ways. #

0:20:570:21:01

# We are in love right here together

0:21:010:21:06

# There's nothing better than singing along. #

0:21:060:21:11

This is the end of the vlog.

0:21:110:21:13

It's a new day at music mansion

0:21:180:21:20

and the mums are about to face their first physical challenge.

0:21:200:21:24

There's a message from Lauren, ladies.

0:21:240:21:26

The winner will secure the third

0:21:260:21:28

and final end-of-show Sing-Off spot for their child.

0:21:280:21:31

Morning, mums. To give you a clue about what you'll be facing in your

0:21:310:21:35

first challenge, I thought I'd introduce you to my mum.

0:21:350:21:37

Go for it, Mum.

0:21:370:21:39

Hello. So this challenge is called Hit The Right Note.

0:21:390:21:42

And to win this challenge, you don't need to be musical.

0:21:420:21:44

But you do need to be able to rock and roll.

0:21:440:21:47

THEY GIGGLE MUMS: Oooh!

0:21:470:21:49

In the first challenge, Hit The Right Note, the mums will be going bowling,

0:21:540:21:58

using themselves as the ball.

0:21:580:22:00

The mum who knocks over the most musical notes will win that

0:22:010:22:05

final singing spot for their child.

0:22:050:22:07

Keeping an eye on proceedings is our games guru, Kevin Adams,

0:22:070:22:12

a choreographer and fitness trainer to the stars.

0:22:120:22:15

I think the mums will start off being really, really friendly,

0:22:150:22:18

but when it comes down to competing for your child that's

0:22:180:22:21

-when the gloves are off.

-DING-DING!

0:22:210:22:25

With Lola and Matt's mums getting to sit this one out,

0:22:250:22:28

the pressure is on for the other six.

0:22:280:22:30

You know what's at stake here today.

0:22:300:22:32

There is one performance spot up for grabs,

0:22:320:22:34

and the mum that wins sends their child into the sing-off.

0:22:340:22:38

Don't let them down. But most of all, do not let me down!

0:22:380:22:41

THEY GIGGLE NERVOUSLY

0:22:410:22:42

I'm ready and I'm excited. Bring it on!

0:22:420:22:46

Let's get this challenge started. Let's go.

0:22:460:22:48

First up is Amaria's mum, Jasmine.

0:22:500:22:53

Oh, God, I can't see!

0:22:530:22:55

-Oh, God!

-Let's go, Jasmine. Three, two, one.

0:22:580:23:01

KLAXON

0:23:010:23:02

Go, Jasmine, come on! Come on! That's a good speed there.

0:23:030:23:07

Oh, yes!

0:23:070:23:08

It's like a 100 metres sprint, how many's she going to get down?

0:23:080:23:12

LAUGHTER

0:23:120:23:14

And the score for Jasmine is four!

0:23:160:23:19

-APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

-Well done, Jasmine.

0:23:190:23:22

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

0:23:220:23:24

KLAXON

0:23:260:23:27

-Come on!

-Next up is Lily's mum, Lisa...

0:23:270:23:30

Come on, Mum!

0:23:310:23:32

Boom!

0:23:320:23:33

-..Evan's mum, Fiona...

-Come on, Mum, yes! Come on, Mum!

-Go, go, go!

0:23:360:23:40

Boom. Come on, boom!

0:23:420:23:43

..and Becky's mum, Linda...

0:23:450:23:47

Whoo! Well done.

0:23:490:23:52

..who only managed to knock down three pins each.

0:23:520:23:56

-I let you down, didn't I? Sorry.

-It's all right.

0:23:560:23:58

I would like to have won it for you,

0:23:580:24:00

but, at least I made it to the skittles(!)

0:24:000:24:03

Which means that Amaria and Jasmine are still in the lead.

0:24:030:24:06

I've got four down, the rest have got three.

0:24:060:24:10

But it's nerve-racking because they always leave the best till last.

0:24:100:24:14

Next up and hoping to knock Jasmine off the top spot is

0:24:140:24:17

Rai-Elle's mum, Bernice.

0:24:170:24:19

Bit scary.

0:24:190:24:20

-Three, two, one.

-KLAXON

0:24:200:24:23

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:24:230:24:25

We're off to a flying start there.

0:24:250:24:27

Oh, great technique there. Good pace. She's going. She's going.

0:24:280:24:33

Boom!

0:24:330:24:35

And the score for Bernice is another four.

0:24:360:24:39

So, your mum and your mum both have four, and lastly, is Paddy's mum.

0:24:390:24:44

The pressure is now on Diane to knock down more than four notes,

0:24:460:24:50

to win Paddy that third, and final, place in the end of show sing-off.

0:24:500:24:54

I'm so nervous.

0:24:540:24:56

Hopefully, it's best till last, and I really want to sing the Ed Sheeran

0:24:560:24:59

song because it's one of my most favourite songs in the world.

0:24:590:25:03

OK, Diane. Three, two, one.

0:25:080:25:10

-KLAXON

-Go!

0:25:100:25:11

-Go on, Mum!

-Come on, Diane. Great technique there. Great pace.

0:25:140:25:17

Oh, wow! That is some serious speed.

0:25:170:25:20

Boom!

0:25:220:25:24

That's five out.

0:25:270:25:28

-How many have I got?

-You got five! Woohoo!

0:25:300:25:33

Yes!

0:25:330:25:34

Diane came up trumps, five!

0:25:340:25:37

I just focused, and just thought,

0:25:390:25:40

Patrick really wanted to do this song. I just went for it.

0:25:400:25:43

So, yes.

0:25:430:25:44

THEY CHATTER OVER EACH OTHER

0:25:460:25:48

So Paddy will be joining Lola

0:25:500:25:52

and Matt in the first end-of-show sing-off in front of the mums.

0:25:520:25:56

They will each be performing their own version of Ed Sheeran's

0:25:560:25:59

Thinking Out Loud...

0:25:590:26:01

-Hi.

-How you doing?

0:26:010:26:02

..and musical director, David Tench,

0:26:020:26:04

doesn't have long to get them prepared.

0:26:040:26:07

When Lauren announced the song, you quite clearly said,

0:26:080:26:11

"This is not for me."

0:26:110:26:12

-Yeah, definitely.

-Right.

-I was not happy.

0:26:120:26:16

Close your eyes, throw your head back, and just see what happens.

0:26:160:26:19

# We found love right where we are...

0:26:220:26:24

Fantastic.

0:26:250:26:26

I would say that what you've got going on is beautiful,

0:26:260:26:29

-but it's too quiet, Lola.

-My comfort zone is my own music.

0:26:290:26:32

But I think I can pull it off. I have hope that I can pull it off.

0:26:320:26:37

I'm not going to say I have confidence,

0:26:370:26:38

because right now I don't. Not going to lie.

0:26:380:26:40

# Is a... #

0:26:430:26:45

Oh, I've messed up there!

0:26:450:26:46

# Honey, I'll be loving you... #

0:26:470:26:53

..I messed that up. Are we doing the second one or the first one?

0:26:530:26:55

It's "only your soul could never grow old."

0:26:550:26:57

I didn't know which one we were doing.

0:26:570:26:59

If you're going to go into the performance and you're not

0:26:590:27:02

-quite sure, maybe we should have a little stand with the words on for you?

-Yeah, sure.

0:27:020:27:06

It wouldn't be my song of choice.

0:27:060:27:08

I think there are other people who could, er,

0:27:080:27:11

be better than me in that song.

0:27:110:27:12

What about the sense in the lyrics?

0:27:120:27:14

-Do you feel like you can connect?

-I know what the song is about.

0:27:140:27:17

Like, people growing old and still loving each other,

0:27:170:27:20

but yesterday, when we were singing a song, I forgot my lyrics.

0:27:200:27:24

It helps me if I try and put a picture into the words that

0:27:240:27:27

I have to remember.

0:27:270:27:29

So, as you go through the song, "Take me into your loving arms",

0:27:290:27:32

then you can think of, maybe, the arms of an orang-utan.

0:27:320:27:35

They have pretty long arms.

0:27:350:27:37

I do get nervous before I perform. You'll be worrying if you're going

0:27:370:27:41

to get something wrong, if you're going to forget the words.

0:27:410:27:43

It made me feel like I had to up my game and get more ready.

0:27:430:27:46

David has now done everything he can.

0:27:490:27:51

It's time for our first Got What It Takes Sing-Off.

0:27:530:27:55

We've got Lola, Matt and Paddy.

0:27:570:27:58

It's going to be really interesting because they're all so, so different.

0:27:580:28:03

Each sing-off the mums are the judges,

0:28:030:28:05

and will vote to decide which performer is the winner.

0:28:050:28:08

The person with the most sing-off wins after eight episodes will

0:28:100:28:13

automatically qualify for the grand final.

0:28:130:28:16

Hi, guys. So, as you all know,

0:28:190:28:21

Matt, Lola and Paddy will be going head-to-head

0:28:210:28:24

with their version of Thinking Out Loud, and the winner of this sing-off

0:28:240:28:27

gets one step closer to that amazing opportunity, Radio One's Big Weekend.

0:28:270:28:32

So, you mums are the judges, how are you guys feeling?

0:28:320:28:35

It feels strange being on this side of the table,

0:28:350:28:37

judging other people's singing.

0:28:370:28:39

This is kind of, quite intimate, with all the mums sitting here.

0:28:390:28:41

I think it's actually quite a difficult one.

0:28:410:28:43

It feels very strange that I'm going to be judging my own son.

0:28:430:28:47

So, guys, let's get started

0:28:470:28:48

because I'm really getting nervous for them now.

0:28:480:28:51

Matt's up first. In you come, Matt.

0:28:510:28:53

In rehearsals it was decided that that Matt would

0:28:560:28:58

bring his lyrics in with him.

0:28:580:29:00

But in a last-minute decision he has also decided to sing without

0:29:000:29:03

David accompanying him.

0:29:030:29:05

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

0:29:070:29:11

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

0:29:130:29:15

# When my hands don't play the strings the same way

0:29:170:29:22

# I know you'll still love me the same

0:29:230:29:27

# Cos, honey, your soul can never grow old, it's evergreen

0:29:270:29:34

# And baby, your smile's forever in my mind and memories

0:29:350:29:43

# I'm thinking out loud

0:29:430:29:46

# Maybe we found love right where we are. #

0:29:460:29:52

APPLAUSE

0:29:530:29:54

-Hey, Matt.

-Hey.

-So why did you decide not to do it with the piano?

0:29:590:30:03

I think because, um,

0:30:030:30:05

I can do more variety of notes with my voice without the piano.

0:30:050:30:08

I don't have to stick to one thing.

0:30:080:30:10

When Matt took to the stage, and suddenly decided to sing

0:30:100:30:13

without piano accompaniment, I was really shocked.

0:30:130:30:17

And I felt like it actually affected his performance badly.

0:30:170:30:20

So, Katie, what did you think of Matt's performance?

0:30:200:30:23

Really pressured situation for him, and I'm really, super proud.

0:30:230:30:28

Matt, that's the first time I've heard you sing

0:30:280:30:30

and I think you've got a lovely voice.

0:30:300:30:31

I did do it a cappella, which I'm not sure I should have done now.

0:30:370:30:41

I'm just going to take in everything that's on board,

0:30:410:30:44

and next time you see me I think I'm going to smash it.

0:30:440:30:47

So, guys, up next is Lola. Come on in, Lola.

0:30:470:30:50

Doing covers isn't something that comes naturally to singer

0:30:530:30:56

songwriter, Lola.

0:30:560:30:57

So will she be able to impress the mums?

0:30:570:30:59

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

0:31:020:31:06

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

0:31:060:31:12

# Darling, I will be loving you till we're 70

0:31:120:31:19

SHE COUGHS

0:31:190:31:21

# And baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23

0:31:230:31:30

# I'm thinking about

0:31:330:31:37

# Maybe we found love right where we are. #

0:31:370:31:43

So, what did you think of the performance?

0:31:510:31:53

Oh, Lola, I thought it was really good. Well done.

0:31:530:31:55

I look forward to seeing more of you.

0:31:550:31:57

I didn't really know what to expect. I never do when she comes on stage.

0:31:570:32:00

Every time she does a song it's different.

0:32:000:32:01

So I'm really proud of that.

0:32:010:32:03

Lola's performance was amazing,

0:32:080:32:10

but maybe she bit off a little bit more than she could chew.

0:32:100:32:13

I think, with this performance, I just tried too hard.

0:32:130:32:16

That's the trouble, sometimes trying too hard doesn't get you anywhere.

0:32:160:32:19

The next performance is Paddy, in you come, Paddy.

0:32:190:32:22

Paddy's biggest fear is forgetting his words on stage,

0:32:240:32:28

so will he be able to hold his nerve in front of the panel of mums?

0:32:280:32:31

# Darling, I will be loving you

0:32:370:32:41

# Till we're 70

0:32:410:32:45

# Baby, my heart could still fall as hard

0:32:490:32:55

# At 23

0:32:550:32:57

# Take me into your loving arms

0:33:010:33:05

# Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

0:33:070:33:12

# Oh, darling, place your hand on my beating heart

0:33:120:33:16

# I'm thinking out loud

0:33:180:33:21

# Maybe we found love right where we are. #

0:33:210:33:27

Hey, Paddy. That was such a great performance, how are you feeling?

0:33:380:33:41

I'm feeling quite happy that I've just not forgot the words.

0:33:410:33:45

Oh, good(!)

0:33:450:33:46

I know you were worried about that.

0:33:460:33:48

Let's go over to the mums to see what they thought.

0:33:480:33:51

I think Paddy did extremely well, I'm so proud of you, well done.

0:33:510:33:55

Oh, Paddy, that's the first time I've heard you sing,

0:33:550:33:57

and it was beautiful.

0:33:570:33:59

I think it was really lovely. Well done.

0:33:590:34:00

-Well done, Paddy.

-Thank you.

0:34:000:34:02

I was blown away by Paddy today.

0:34:060:34:09

All the way, start to finish, he was perfect.

0:34:090:34:12

It was really nerve-racking, but I managed to pull through it.

0:34:120:34:16

Right, mums, so it's voting time.

0:34:160:34:18

Write down your votes.

0:34:190:34:21

The mums must now vote for the person they think deserves to win the first

0:34:210:34:25

sing-off, taking them one step closer to that automatic spot in the final.

0:34:250:34:30

I think doing this is a massive learning curve for not just

0:34:300:34:33

the kids, but the mums as well.

0:34:330:34:35

I'm sure it was really tough for them to judge the kids today,

0:34:350:34:39

and I think it was a lot harder than they expected it to be.

0:34:390:34:43

So, guys, I've got the winner.

0:34:430:34:45

The person with the most votes today was...

0:34:480:34:51

Paddy.

0:34:580:34:59

I think, for me, the right person won today.

0:35:060:35:08

What he did was really, really simple.

0:35:080:35:10

Sometimes, simple is more effective.

0:35:100:35:13

All the singers are facing this huge opportunity,

0:35:130:35:15

to sing at Radio 1 Big Weekend.

0:35:150:35:18

But, based on that first sing-off, I don't think anyone's ready yet.

0:35:180:35:22

Next time...

0:35:250:35:26

It's a big song.

0:35:280:35:29

# I wanted it, baby. #

0:35:290:35:31

I am really, really nervous for them.

0:35:310:35:33

-HE FAILS TO HIT THE NOTE

-Oh!

0:35:330:35:35

THEY SCREAM

0:35:350:35:37

Up you get, Linda.

0:35:370:35:38

We're closing the gap. Keep the pace going.

0:35:380:35:41

I don't sing these kind of songs. I'm just so nervous.

0:35:410:35:44

Relax!

0:35:440:35:46

Oh, God.

0:35:460:35:47

# Place your hand on my beating heart

0:35:480:35:52

# I'm thinking out loud

0:35:530:35:56

# Maybe we found love right where we are. #

0:35:560:36:02

Boom!

0:36:020:36:04

Talent show. Eight young singers and their mums arrive at the music mansion where presenter Lauren Platt reveals the exciting prize that waits at the end of the competition.
