-# O-o-o-o-oh!

-Ye-e-e-e-eah!

-Aa-a-a-a-aah! #

0:00:050:00:08

..are going head-to-head...

0:00:080:00:10

HE YELLS

0:00:100:00:11

No way.

0:00:110:00:12

-BOW!

-CHEERING

0:00:120:00:14

..in a battle for the ultimate gig.

0:00:140:00:15

Radio 1's Big Weekend. EXCITED MURMURING

0:00:150:00:17

I just can't believe it, to be honest. I just want to win.

0:00:170:00:20

But with their mums as the judges...

0:00:200:00:23

Sorry, can I start again?

0:00:230:00:24

I thought you were absolutely fabulous. I got goose pimples.

0:00:240:00:28

..and some fierce competition...

0:00:280:00:30

-MAN:

-Oh! Oh, wow.

-COME ON!

0:00:300:00:32

I don't believe I've done that!

0:00:320:00:34

-I am a bit upset.

-I'm so sorry.

0:00:340:00:36

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

0:00:360:00:39

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

0:00:390:00:42

-I literally can't sing that song.

-The competition's really hotting up.

0:00:420:00:45

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

0:00:450:00:47

It's brutal. There are no days off.

0:00:470:00:49

You're always being watched.

0:00:490:00:51

-Oh, I've completely forgotten.

-Relax!

0:00:510:00:53

You're always being judged.

0:00:530:00:55

I don't really want to answer that question.

0:00:550:00:57

This is "Got What It Takes?"

0:00:570:01:00

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

0:01:000:01:02

That's a very tricky question.

0:01:030:01:05

# So, come on, tell me What's it going to be?

0:01:060:01:09

# I got-got got what it takes now

0:01:090:01:12

# I'm gonna get me going and make 'em see

0:01:120:01:15

# I got-got, got what it takes now

0:01:150:01:18

# Oh-oh, oh-oh

0:01:180:01:20

# I got-got, got what it takes now

0:01:200:01:23

# Oh-oh, oh-oh

0:01:230:01:26

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

0:01:260:01:28

Hey, guys, Lauren here.

0:01:320:01:33

The road to a successful career not only tests your singing ability,

0:01:330:01:37

it can also test your emotions too, as our eight are about to find out.

0:01:370:01:41

-Well done, Paddy. Are you sure you want to go again, though?

-Yeah.

0:01:410:01:45

-Cos we can always go around and then come back.

-It's fine.

0:01:450:01:47

I'm sorry.

0:01:490:01:51

I still am really upset.

0:01:510:01:52

Oh! Oh!

0:01:520:01:54

-Ooh!

-Oh, my God!

0:01:540:01:55

Cos you're not helping me, are you?

0:01:550:01:57

I can't help you, you do it yourself.

0:01:570:01:59

'Another day at the Music Mansion

0:02:060:02:08

'and more tough challenges ahead for our group of young singers.'

0:02:080:02:11

-Morning, guys. ALL:

-Morning!

0:02:110:02:14

So, as you guys know by now,

0:02:140:02:16

you are really starting to learn how tough the music industry can be.

0:02:160:02:19

There's ups and there's downs, so what's the hardest bit for you guys?

0:02:190:02:23

Like, singing a song that you wouldn't usually sing.

0:02:230:02:26

So, like, adapting yourself to singing that song

0:02:260:02:28

and making it work for you, I think that's a really difficult part.

0:02:280:02:32

One of the biggest things that the kids have learnt

0:02:320:02:34

is they have to practise their songs.

0:02:340:02:36

We have seen a few crumble on stage so far.

0:02:360:02:38

One of the toughest parts for the mums is watching the kids perform.

0:02:380:02:41

But they're all handling it really, really well.

0:02:410:02:44

But, yeah, it's quite tough and nerve-racking watching.

0:02:440:02:46

Are you guys ready to find out what your next song is?

0:02:460:02:49

-ALL:

-Yes!

-Let's go.

0:02:490:02:50

Each episode, only three of the singers get to perform in

0:02:510:02:54

an end-of-show Sing Off.

0:02:540:02:56

Those places can be won in a series of challenges.

0:02:560:02:59

But first, our musical director David Tench

0:02:590:03:02

will be teaching the whole group the new song.

0:03:020:03:05

What d'you think it'll be like for the kids?

0:03:050:03:06

It's an amazing song, but you very rarely hear somebody do it well.

0:03:060:03:11

-And her range is ridiculous!

-She has an amazing range.

0:03:110:03:15

I don't know, we'll see how it goes for the kids.

0:03:150:03:17

It might be a bit too much for them.

0:03:170:03:19

Hiya!

0:03:190:03:20

Are you excited to find out what your next song is?

0:03:220:03:24

-ALL:

-Yes!

0:03:240:03:25

The song you'll be singing this time is...

0:03:250:03:28

..Who You Are by Jessie J.

0:03:320:03:34

-GIRL:

-Whoop!

-Oh...

0:03:340:03:35

# Sometimes it's hard

0:03:350:03:38

# To follow your heart... #

0:03:380:03:41

Taken from her album of the same name,

0:03:410:03:43

Who You Are reached number two in the UK album charts

0:03:430:03:46

and still remains one of Jessie J's most personal songs.

0:03:460:03:50

# ..Egos, fake shows, like, whoa! #

0:03:500:03:52

But how will our group handle its complex mix

0:03:520:03:54

of R&B ballad and punchy rap?

0:03:540:03:56

# ..Real life, good love... #

0:03:560:03:58

I'm excited because it's my song, I like the song. Yeah.

0:03:580:04:02

I'm going to have to work really hard and I need to put,

0:04:020:04:06

like, my own twist on it and then just smash it, bang.

0:04:060:04:09

# I stare at my reflection in the mirror

0:04:090:04:14

# Why am I doing this to myself? #

0:04:170:04:21

I really do love Jessie J as an artist.

0:04:210:04:23

Her voice is outstanding.

0:04:230:04:25

# Seeing is deceiving Dreaming is believing

0:04:250:04:29

# It's OK not to be OK... #

0:04:290:04:32

It's a Jessie J song

0:04:320:04:34

and I really think most of her songs really suit my voice.

0:04:340:04:37

# Just be true to who you are... #

0:04:370:04:40

Love this song. I think it has a very interesting meaning behind it

0:04:400:04:42

and I think everybody there can relate to it.

0:04:420:04:45

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:450:04:48

There are plenty of people that try to sing it

0:04:490:04:52

and can't really do it justice, so find your own version,

0:04:520:04:54

whether it's low, high, in between, it doesn't matter.

0:04:540:04:58

Good luck.

0:04:580:04:59

-ALL:

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:04:590:05:00

OK, guys, let's get the lyrics and start working through it.

0:05:000:05:03

David has concerns about the group's ability to handle this

0:05:030:05:05

technically demanding song.

0:05:050:05:08

So, what I think we should do is try the more difficult version first,

0:05:080:05:12

so we'll try and do it like Jessie does,

0:05:120:05:14

and then we'll know from there who's got it, who hasn't got it.

0:05:140:05:18

Would we be able to, like, take it down maybe a bit lower,

0:05:180:05:20

but still have the higher chorus, or do you think it would be too low?

0:05:200:05:24

-Well, let's find out.

-OK.

0:05:240:05:25

In fact, let's start with you, Lily.

0:05:250:05:27

Lily was the first up to do the song on her own.

0:05:270:05:29

# Sometimes it's hard

0:05:290:05:33

# To follow your heart... #

0:05:330:05:36

She just absolutely knocked it out the park. I was so impressed.

0:05:360:05:40

# No, no, no, no, no... #

0:05:400:05:43

# Don't lose who you are... #

0:05:430:05:46

# In the blur of the stars... #

0:05:460:05:50

A Jessie J song, the way she sings it,

0:05:500:05:52

it just covers an enormous range...

0:05:520:05:54

# It's OK not to be OK... #

0:05:540:05:58

..so I came up with an alternative version,

0:05:580:06:00

but most of 'em didn't need it.

0:06:000:06:01

# Don't lose who you are... #

0:06:010:06:04

But this song isn't just about tricky range,

0:06:040:06:06

it's a very emotional track.

0:06:060:06:08

# Seeing is deceiving... #

0:06:080:06:10

I think the song is a very meaningful song.

0:06:100:06:13

I mean, the words are quite deep in it.

0:06:130:06:16

# Sometimes it's hard

0:06:160:06:19

# To follow your heart... #

0:06:190:06:22

Sorry.

0:06:220:06:23

I'm just a bit emotional.

0:06:230:06:24

But, Paddy...

0:06:240:06:26

-It's fine.

-..we're only in rehearsal, man,

0:06:260:06:28

so if you want to take a break, we'll move on...

0:06:280:06:30

-Yeah, I'm just a bit emotional. Can we go again, please?

-Totally.

0:06:300:06:33

-Are you sure you want to go again, though?

-Yeah.

0:06:330:06:35

-Cos we can always go around and then come back.

-It's fine.

0:06:350:06:37

I was really nervous, so I was shaking like mad.

0:06:390:06:41

And then the song started getting a bit emotional...

0:06:410:06:44

-Paddy, you're doing really well.

-Come on, mate, come on.

0:06:440:06:46

Come on, you can do it.

0:06:460:06:47

# The real me on the shelf

0:06:470:06:51

# No, no, no, no, no

0:06:510:06:53

# Don't lose who you are... #

0:06:530:06:56

Yeah, go on, then.

0:06:560:06:57

# In the blur of the stars! #

0:06:570:07:00

He did so well.

0:07:000:07:01

Like, he recovered from, you know, being upset and he's amazing.

0:07:010:07:05

He's got a brilliant, brilliant voice.

0:07:050:07:07

# Everybody's bruising

0:07:070:07:09

# Just be true to who you are... #

0:07:090:07:13

And end.

0:07:130:07:14

# Ye-e-e-eah! #

0:07:140:07:16

CHEERING

0:07:160:07:18

Some people could have just started crying, walked out,

0:07:180:07:20

not be able to handle it.

0:07:200:07:21

But he said, "No, I want to finish it, I want to carry on,"

0:07:210:07:24

and that's what he did. I was really impressed.

0:07:240:07:27

I can't wait to see which three of you

0:07:270:07:29

are going to do it in the Sing Off.

0:07:290:07:31

Really good, well done.

0:07:310:07:32

# I got-got, got what it takes now

0:07:320:07:35

Being a songwriter as well as a singer

0:07:370:07:39

can really help your career.

0:07:390:07:40

But where do the professionals find their inspiration?

0:07:400:07:43

Hey, we're Clean Bandit and you're watching "Got What It Takes?".

0:07:430:07:46

My main inspiration for songwriting

0:07:460:07:50

comes from anything that moves me.

0:07:500:07:53

Real-life situations, you know,

0:07:530:07:55

that's what inspires a lot of my songwriting.

0:07:550:07:57

Just make sure your lyrics are kind of true sentiments

0:07:570:08:01

that relate to personal experiences in your life.

0:08:010:08:03

There are only three end-of-show Sing Off spots available,

0:08:050:08:08

and two of them can be won in our Music Industry Challenge.

0:08:080:08:11

Evan and Becky have yet to be in a Sing Off,

0:08:120:08:14

so they'll be looking for a win.

0:08:140:08:16

'It's challenge time,

0:08:160:08:17

'and I think some of you are going to like this one.

0:08:170:08:19

'Singing other people's hits is one thing,

0:08:190:08:21

'but being able to write your own is another level.'

0:08:210:08:24

Me, personally, songwriting isn't my forte,

0:08:240:08:27

but I do believe it's important to co-write your own songs.

0:08:270:08:29

So, today's Music Industry Challenge is all about songwriting.

0:08:290:08:34

You're going to be sick of this.

0:08:340:08:36

-ALL LAUGH

-Yeah!

0:08:360:08:37

Today's guest judge specialises in writing clever

0:08:390:08:42

and thought-provoking lyrics.

0:08:420:08:44

# I've been underwater

0:08:440:08:45

# Trying to push the anchor off me... #

0:08:450:08:47

Since finding fame on the X Factor,

0:08:470:08:49

singer-songwriter Lucy Spraggan

0:08:490:08:51

has had three top-40 albums

0:08:510:08:53

and continues to write her own unique material.

0:08:530:08:55

-Hello, everybody.

-ALL:

-Hello!

0:08:550:08:58

I'm Lucy Spraggan. And have you done any songwriting before? Yeah?

0:08:580:09:02

-One or two.

-Are most of your songs written from past experiences?

0:09:020:09:06

That's a really good question.

0:09:060:09:07

A lot of my songs are written about previous experiences,

0:09:070:09:09

either with me or something I've read about.

0:09:090:09:11

So what was it like when you finished the X Factor?

0:09:110:09:14

When you come off, maybe a TV show, you come off something big,

0:09:140:09:17

you walk into the industry on a high,

0:09:170:09:19

it can knock you down quite low afterwards.

0:09:190:09:22

If you're focused on fame, you're focused on the fortune of things,

0:09:220:09:25

I don't think it's a good way to think.

0:09:250:09:27

Focus on being happy within yourself and within your creative ability.

0:09:270:09:32

Lucy was telling us that there are lots of ups and downs

0:09:320:09:35

in the music industry

0:09:350:09:36

and that it is tough and just to keep doing what makes you happy.

0:09:360:09:40

Have you got a song that you can play us?

0:09:400:09:42

I have, yeah.

0:09:420:09:43

I wrote this song about an elderly couple

0:09:430:09:44

that I saw in the street while I was busking one time.

0:09:440:09:47

# Tom was born in 1942 with eyes of blue

0:09:480:09:52

# And the doctor said his birth was far too fast

0:09:520:09:55

# His heart stopped twice but yet he survived

0:09:570:10:00

# As he took his first breath his mother took her last

0:10:000:10:03

# And his father knew that he wasn't to blame

0:10:050:10:07

# But he never quite looked at Tom the same after that. #

0:10:070:10:10

-She's an amazing artist.

-Oh, yeah. Her songs are amazing.

0:10:100:10:13

# And in the morning I'll make you up

0:10:130:10:16

# Some tea and toast. #

0:10:170:10:19

CHEERING

0:10:200:10:23

Today, your challenge is going to be a songwriting challenge.

0:10:240:10:27

You are going to be put into pairs. The theme today is Mums.

0:10:270:10:31

Aw!

0:10:310:10:32

Before being paired up for the challenge,

0:10:340:10:36

there's just time to meet up with their mums to get some ideas.

0:10:360:10:39

-I've got to write a song. I need you to help me with it.

-OK.

0:10:390:10:42

Um...

0:10:420:10:44

Inspiration.

0:10:440:10:45

HE LAUGHS

0:10:450:10:47

-We're both crazy.

-You can put that if you think it'll fit in.

0:10:470:10:51

I think maybe if you can think of a particular situation, you know.

0:10:510:10:54

-Or we had a bit of a laugh together.

-Yeah.

0:10:540:10:57

What else? You're not helping me, are you?

0:10:570:10:59

I can't help you, you do it yourself.

0:10:590:11:00

You've got to help me, everyone else is helping.

0:11:000:11:03

-Our feet don't touch the ground... around...

-No.

0:11:030:11:06

-Yeah.

-I don't like that.

0:11:060:11:08

-Sports?

-No.

0:11:080:11:10

Things like grazing knees, falling off bikes...

0:11:110:11:15

-Climbing trees...

-Singing in mics.

0:11:150:11:19

SHE LAUGHS

0:11:190:11:22

After advice from the mums,

0:11:250:11:26

it's time for everyone to pair off for the challenge.

0:11:260:11:30

Paddy has been teamed with Matt.

0:11:300:11:31

D'you think it's a lot of pressure writing a song about our mums?

0:11:310:11:34

Um, yeah, I mean, we don't want to say something wrong, do we?

0:11:340:11:37

Oh, yeah, yeah.

0:11:370:11:38

Lola has been paired with Evan.

0:11:380:11:40

So, basically, you're going to do...

0:11:400:11:41

-The mum's bit.

-Yeah.

0:11:410:11:43

So, "And I will always love you..."

0:11:430:11:45

-BOTH:

-"Even if I don't win."

0:11:450:11:46

Becky is teamed with Rai-Elle.

0:11:460:11:48

I've got, um...

0:11:480:11:49

"Your efforts have been noted,

0:11:490:11:50

"so now I'm going to make you proud of me, like I'm proud of you.

0:11:500:11:54

"Mum, I've got what it takes."

0:11:540:11:55

I think your song's probably a bit better than mine.

0:11:550:11:58

It's cheesy, but, you know!

0:11:580:11:59

And Lily is writing with Amaria.

0:11:590:12:01

-Oh, aah!

-Shall we try it from here, again?

0:12:010:12:04

-BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:12:040:12:05

-Three, two, one, go.

-And do harmonies, maybe?

0:12:050:12:08

-Cool.

-OK.

0:12:080:12:10

# Attempting our... #

0:12:100:12:11

The teams have just one hour to finish,

0:12:110:12:13

then Lucy will pick a winning song based on lyrical content,

0:12:130:12:17

structure and emotional detail.

0:12:170:12:19

# Even if you fall... #

0:12:190:12:21

It's either going to be really difficult or really easy for them.

0:12:210:12:24

It just completely depends on which way they like writing.

0:12:240:12:26

-Hi!

-How's it going?

0:12:260:12:28

-Yeah, it's fine.

-Cool.

0:12:280:12:29

What's been the most difficult part so far?

0:12:290:12:32

Coming up with the lyrics,

0:12:320:12:33

cos this is something that I've definitely never done before.

0:12:330:12:36

-Have you written songs with other people before?

-No.

0:12:360:12:39

So this is your first co-write?

0:12:390:12:40

This is your first co-write, which is something that happens

0:12:400:12:43

a lot in the music industry

0:12:430:12:44

and something there's a lot of requests for.

0:12:440:12:46

So, that's really exciting.

0:12:460:12:48

-Oh!

-Hi!

-Hi.

0:12:480:12:49

-How's it going?

-Yeah, good.

-Good?

0:12:490:12:51

-How have you felt writing about your mums?

-It's all right.

-It's...

0:12:510:12:54

-We've taken on the idea of he's the kid and I'm the mum.

-Oh, wicked.

0:12:540:12:58

Time's up. Now all the teams must perform the song they've written

0:13:000:13:04

in front of Lucy.

0:13:040:13:05

-Want to show me the song?

-BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:13:070:13:08

Awesome.

0:13:080:13:09

# I was born in 2002

0:13:090:13:13

# I didn't know what to do

0:13:130:13:18

# But when I'm ill, you care for me

0:13:180:13:22

# But when you're ill I'm not allowed to sing. #

0:13:220:13:26

Yeah, it went really well, we sang our hearts out.

0:13:260:13:28

And we wrote our best...

0:13:280:13:30

Only within an hour as well, so that's pretty good.

0:13:300:13:32

# ..What you gave me Ooh, ye-e-e-eah

0:13:320:13:36

# These memories we make

0:13:360:13:38

# I will always be able to see

0:13:380:13:41

# Ye-e-e-eah. #

0:13:410:13:44

I love it, well done.

0:13:440:13:47

# So I say gracias

0:13:510:13:55

# For everything that you do

0:13:550:13:59

# I say gracias

0:13:590:14:03

# I will always love you. #

0:14:030:14:07

It's stuck in everybody's heads,

0:14:070:14:09

so as far as I'm concerned we done a good job.

0:14:090:14:12

# Your efforts have been noted So now I'm going to make

0:14:120:14:16

# You proud of me Like I'm proud of you

0:14:160:14:18

# I've got what it takes. #

0:14:180:14:24

-BOTH:

-Thank you.

-Very well done. Thank you.

0:14:240:14:26

# And I will always love you

0:14:270:14:29

# Even if I don't win

0:14:290:14:31

# Yes, even if you don't win sometimes

0:14:310:14:33

# Cos you will always be the best in my eyes. #

0:14:330:14:38

-We both had a good idea of what style we were going for.

-Yeah.

0:14:380:14:41

# And I forgive you and I Love you through it all

0:14:410:14:45

# Through it all Through it all. #

0:14:450:14:48

We did write a really good song.

0:14:480:14:50

I mean, I would listen to that, to be honest, I would.

0:14:500:14:53

# Through it all. #

0:14:530:14:55

-Whoo! Well done.

-EVAN:

-Thank you.

0:14:560:14:58

Loved it.

0:14:580:14:59

# She can make you happy

0:14:590:15:02

# She can make your dreams come true

0:15:020:15:05

# She can make you happy

0:15:050:15:07

# She can make your dreams come true

0:15:070:15:09

# Our sweetness, our sorrow. #

0:15:090:15:12

-I think we did it really well.

-Yeah.

0:15:120:15:14

-Do you think there was any bad point?

-Nope.

-No.

0:15:140:15:16

# There's no-one, no-one No-one

0:15:160:15:20

# Bu-u-u-ut

0:15:210:15:23

# Yo-o-o-o-ou

0:15:230:15:26

# O-o-o-oh. #

0:15:260:15:29

Thank you very much.

0:15:290:15:31

Lucy now has to decide on a winning team.

0:15:310:15:34

It is not a nice feeling to have to decide who's the best,

0:15:340:15:39

cos I think they've all been fantastic.

0:15:390:15:41

It's difficult to make that decision.

0:15:410:15:43

I think you guys exceeded my expectations 100 times over.

0:15:440:15:50

I think you just completely smashed it.

0:15:500:15:52

You were all incredible.

0:15:520:15:54

And today, the winner for me is...

0:15:560:15:58

..Lola and Evan.

0:16:060:16:07

APPLAUSE

0:16:070:16:09

BOTH LAUGH

0:16:090:16:11

The connection those two had, I think they brought out

0:16:120:16:15

the best in each other, so I'm really happy with my decision.

0:16:150:16:17

I'm excited about being in the Sing Off and I'm glad I've got in.

0:16:170:16:22

So, yeah.

0:16:220:16:24

12-year-old Evan from the Scottish Borders

0:16:260:16:28

comes from a music-loving family.

0:16:280:16:30

# Whoo-ooh, ooh, ooh... #

0:16:300:16:34

I've been brought up listening to all different kinds of music.

0:16:340:16:37

Like my dad's taste in music, my mum's taste in music.

0:16:370:16:39

Mum is Evan's number one fan, but even she needs the occasional break.

0:16:390:16:44

She's always telling me off for playing the guitar

0:16:440:16:46

and the drums too much.

0:16:460:16:48

# I'm waiting for you... #

0:16:490:16:51

When you are sort of wanting some quiet time,

0:16:510:16:53

it can be quite difficult to relax.

0:16:530:16:55

Evan gained attention at the auditions

0:16:570:16:59

with a performance of a self-written song.

0:16:590:17:01

# Ooh-ooh, hey-oh

0:17:010:17:03

# Ooh-ooh, hey-oh

0:17:030:17:05

# I'm waiting for you. #

0:17:070:17:09

My ultimate ambition in music is to become a singer-songwriter.

0:17:090:17:13

But it's really only been till now where I've actually thought,

0:17:130:17:17

"Wow, I could really do this."

0:17:170:17:19

End of day four

0:17:240:17:26

and do our kids think about anything else other than music?

0:17:260:17:29

Aah!

0:17:290:17:30

I think it's obvious. Singing, dancing...

0:17:300:17:34

-MUM:

-Amaria?

-I'm doing a blog, Mum!

0:17:340:17:36

My main hobbies are singing, dancing and acting. I love doing all three.

0:17:360:17:41

I love playing guitar. In fact, most of my day is built up of practising.

0:17:410:17:44

I love singing and I love listening to rock music.

0:17:440:17:47

I completely love songwriting and I love music.

0:17:470:17:51

-I love singing, I do.

-MOTHER LAUGHS

0:17:510:17:53

I really do love... # O-o-o-o-oh! #

0:17:530:17:55

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

0:17:570:18:00

'A new day, and time for the mums to do their part

0:18:030:18:05

'in the Physical Challenge.

0:18:050:18:07

'Whoever wins will secure the third

0:18:070:18:09

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

0:18:090:18:11

Morning, mums.

0:18:110:18:13

Every artist dreams of having a multi-platinum-selling record.

0:18:130:18:16

To earn one is a huge achievement, but it takes hard work.

0:18:160:18:20

The question is,

0:18:200:18:21

have you got what it takes to get your hands on one

0:18:210:18:23

in this week's challenge, climbing the charts?

0:18:230:18:27

-Yay(!)

-Oh!

-Climbing the charts.

0:18:270:18:29

-Has anyone done any climbing before?

-Only on a bouncy castle.

0:18:290:18:32

-It was a bouncy climbing wall.

-LAUGHTER

0:18:320:18:35

Imogen and Fiona get to sit today's challenge out,

0:18:350:18:39

but the other mums will be reaching for new heights...literally.

0:18:390:18:43

-For Lisa...

-Oh, my God.

0:18:450:18:47

..this challenge is her worst nightmare.

0:18:470:18:49

I hate heights.

0:18:490:18:50

-I don't even like escalators.

-LAUGHTER

0:18:510:18:55

In this challenge, the mums must make it to the top of the wall,

0:18:550:18:58

whilst collecting four discs along the way.

0:18:580:19:01

A silver disc, gold disc, platinum disc and a multi-platinum disc.

0:19:010:19:06

The mum with the fastest time wins the challenge.

0:19:060:19:10

Jasmine is desperate for Amaria to sing her favourite song

0:19:100:19:13

and Linda wants Becky to reach her first Sing Off.

0:19:130:19:16

As always, games guru and fitness trainer to stars, Kevin Adams,

0:19:160:19:20

will oversee today's challenge.

0:19:200:19:22

As a dad, I will do anything for my children,

0:19:220:19:24

but scaling heights, I'm not Superman.

0:19:240:19:26

I can't do it.

0:19:260:19:28

I-I mean I literally... I won't do it.

0:19:280:19:30

OK, Jasmine, the pressure is really on for you

0:19:340:19:36

because Amaria really wants this song, doesn't she?

0:19:360:19:38

Yeah, I'm really stressed out. She really wants to sing.

0:19:380:19:41

Linda, how are you feeling?

0:19:410:19:42

I have to do it. I'm under a lot of pressure

0:19:420:19:44

and I need to do this for Becky.

0:19:440:19:47

-She is desperate.

-You hope so. OK.

0:19:470:19:50

Let's go climb the charts, ladies.

0:19:500:19:52

First to take to the wall, it's Diane.

0:19:530:19:55

Let's do this for Paddy.

0:19:550:19:57

-Three, two, one...

-WHISTLE BLOWS

0:19:570:20:00

And she's off. Up, up we go.

0:20:000:20:04

And she's made that look easy. Go on, Diane!

0:20:070:20:09

I think the adrenaline running through you

0:20:110:20:13

just makes you really shake like mad.

0:20:130:20:15

If you drop the disc,

0:20:150:20:16

you have to come back to the bottom and start again.

0:20:160:20:20

-I've got what it takes!

-There you go!

0:20:200:20:22

With a super-quick time of 1 minute 24 seconds,

0:20:240:20:27

it's going to be hard to beat.

0:20:270:20:29

Let's climb the charts!

0:20:290:20:31

Bernice, Katie and Linda are up next.

0:20:310:20:34

It was really horrible!

0:20:340:20:36

'You can't think too long about'

0:20:370:20:39

where you are putting your hands and feet,

0:20:390:20:41

'you really just need to go for it.'

0:20:410:20:43

-I've got what it takes!

-Yes!

0:20:430:20:45

-I've got what it takes!

-Yes!

0:20:450:20:48

Ooh! Ooh!

0:20:480:20:50

Oh!

0:20:510:20:52

I was terrified, but I just did what I could.

0:20:520:20:57

At least I got to the top of it.

0:20:570:20:59

-Now it's Lisa's turn.

-Argh!

0:20:590:21:01

Will she be able to overcome her fear of heights?

0:21:010:21:04

I hated it.

0:21:040:21:06

I can't...

0:21:070:21:08

My legs were so shaking. I've got... I had no strength!

0:21:080:21:12

That's the thing. I had no strength to make it to the top.

0:21:120:21:15

No, I don't want to do it any more.

0:21:180:21:20

I looked down and that was it.

0:21:200:21:22

-Two hands on.

-I've got what it takes!

0:21:220:21:24

I told you I didn't like heights!

0:21:270:21:29

Five of the mums have climbed,

0:21:290:21:31

but Diane still has the fastest time

0:21:310:21:33

and Linda didn't manage to get Becky in the Sing Off.

0:21:330:21:36

Now there's only one person who can beat her - Jasmine.

0:21:360:21:39

-You want this for your child, don't you?

-Yeah, definitely.

0:21:390:21:43

She told me last night before she went to bed,

0:21:430:21:45

"If I don't sing my song..." she's going to be

0:21:450:21:48

really, really upset with me.

0:21:480:21:50

Three, two, one...

0:21:500:21:52

WHISTLE TRILLS

0:21:520:21:54

I thought, "You know what, I've just got to run up the wall."

0:21:570:22:00

And I think I ran up the wall.

0:22:000:22:03

You missed one, got to come back across.

0:22:030:22:06

That's good - great technique there.

0:22:060:22:09

That's number three. One more left.

0:22:100:22:12

Quick time as she hooks on. Two hands up and shout out!

0:22:140:22:17

-I've got what it takes!

-Yes, yes, that's it!

0:22:170:22:21

CONTESTANTS CHEER

0:22:210:22:22

Jasmine was fast, but was she quicker than Diane?

0:22:220:22:25

It's time for Kevin to announce the result.

0:22:250:22:27

The winner of today's challenge is...

0:22:270:22:30

..Jasmine!

0:22:380:22:40

CHEERING

0:22:400:22:41

With a time of 1 minute 14 seconds,

0:22:410:22:44

Jasmine wins the challenge for Amaria.

0:22:440:22:46

How are you feeling now?

0:22:460:22:48

I think I can breathe now.

0:22:480:22:49

I've just done it for her cos she's going to be happy.

0:22:490:22:51

Between Amaria and Jasmine, there is a lot of pressure to win.

0:22:510:22:56

My child is going to actually be happy, and it is her song

0:22:560:23:00

and thank God, because I can't take the drama!

0:23:000:23:03

Back at the Music Mansion,

0:23:110:23:12

our eight nervously await the results of the physical challenge.

0:23:120:23:15

-Who won?

-Me!

0:23:150:23:18

-Did you win?

-Yeah.

0:23:210:23:22

Great news for Amaria, but Becky has still yet to be in a Sing Off.

0:23:220:23:27

I still am really upset that I'm the last person to sing. It's not...

0:23:310:23:37

I'm not very happy.

0:23:370:23:39

I've just been telling her, you know,

0:23:410:23:43

"Maybe we're keeping the best one till last.'

0:23:430:23:46

13-year-old Becky first got into music

0:23:500:23:52

through a youth project in Leeds.

0:23:520:23:54

I'm a young carer, so a charity funded for me

0:23:540:23:57

to go into a studio and they've been teaching me how to play the guitar

0:23:570:24:01

and they've got me singing and performing and it's been great.

0:24:010:24:04

As a young carer,

0:24:040:24:05

she helps her mum Linda look after her disabled sister.

0:24:050:24:08

She has got Angelman syndrome,

0:24:080:24:10

which is a really rare genetic condition.

0:24:100:24:13

It was Becky's rocking performance in the audition

0:24:130:24:16

that secured her place at the Music Mansion.

0:24:160:24:19

# Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker

0:24:190:24:22

# With flowers in my hair. #

0:24:220:24:24

Becky is even helping Mum get fit for the physical challenges.

0:24:260:24:31

Come on, let's go!

0:24:310:24:33

My mum is not very physically active.

0:24:330:24:36

-Come on!

-I can't!

0:24:360:24:37

But it would be a nice new thing for her to try.

0:24:370:24:40

It's definitely not all about winning.

0:24:400:24:43

I'm just really happy

0:24:430:24:45

that I'm being able to have this experience and enjoy it.

0:24:450:24:50

So Amaria is joining Evan and Lola in the end-of-show Sing Off.

0:24:550:25:01

The song is particularly challenging and time is short,

0:25:010:25:04

so David Tench has his work cut out.

0:25:040:25:06

# Yes, no, egos, fake shows Like, whoa

0:25:060:25:10

# Just go and leave me alone... #

0:25:100:25:14

Why don't you try starting on a different note,

0:25:140:25:17

so you're going down an octave to...

0:25:170:25:19

# Yes, no, egos... #

0:25:190:25:21

What you can do is go...

0:25:210:25:23

HE SINGS AN OCTAVE HIGHER

0:25:230:25:24

# Yes, no, egos, fake shows Like, whoa

0:25:240:25:26

# Just go and leave me alone

0:25:260:25:30

-# Real talk... # You know what I mean?

-Yeah, yeah.

0:25:300:25:33

At the beginning, when I first met her, everything was inward,

0:25:330:25:36

you know, and you had to go into Lola's world to dig it,

0:25:360:25:39

but now she just performs really openly.

0:25:390:25:41

Let's go for it.

0:25:410:25:43

# Don't lose who you are... #

0:25:440:25:47

-There it is!

-# ..In the blur of the stars

0:25:470:25:51

# Seeing is deceiving, dreaming... #

0:25:510:25:54

This Jessie J song is not Evan's style, it's just not his thing,

0:25:540:25:57

so I'm proud of the way he's... made it more his own kind of sound.

0:25:570:26:03

I really like the way you changed the melody in the chorus.

0:26:030:26:05

There's a couple of lines... I really like that,

0:26:050:26:07

-it's kind of more your flavour.

-Yeah.

0:26:070:26:11

I really enjoyed sort of putting together all the parts

0:26:110:26:14

and sort of making it my own kind of song.

0:26:140:26:16

Do you think you've got a bit more...oomph?

0:26:160:26:18

EVAN LAUGHS

0:26:180:26:19

DAVID SINGS INTRO QUICKLY

0:26:190:26:22

# ..Just be true to who you are

0:26:220:26:25

# Yeah-eah-eah. #

0:26:270:26:29

Well, at first I thought that I sounded a bit rocky,

0:26:290:26:33

but then as I just got into it,

0:26:330:26:34

I just kept building and building up my confidence.

0:26:340:26:37

Oh, yeah, I was going to ask, before we start,

0:26:370:26:40

can you do the intro a little bit longer, would it be possible?

0:26:400:26:43

-Because you want to do something before...?

-Yeah.

-Sure.

0:26:430:26:46

I think Amaria, when we were rehearsing,

0:26:460:26:48

started to try and put too much in there.

0:26:480:26:51

I think she was trying to mess with a good thing,

0:26:510:26:53

so I think it's probably a good idea for her to relax

0:26:530:26:56

and just stick to what she has rehearsed now

0:26:560:26:59

and not try and overcomplicate it.

0:26:590:27:01

David has rehearsed our three finalists the best he can.

0:27:030:27:06

It's time for the fourth Got What It Takes Sing Off.

0:27:060:27:10

We've got Lola, having already won one,

0:27:100:27:12

she's the only person that can take the lead if she wins today.

0:27:120:27:16

We've got Evan, who hasn't performed at all yet

0:27:160:27:18

and we've got Amaria, who is performing for the second time

0:27:180:27:21

and she absolutely loves this song,

0:27:210:27:23

so she's really hoping she going to win.

0:27:230:27:25

The mums will judge each performance

0:27:270:27:29

and vote to decide which of the three is the winner.

0:27:290:27:32

The person with the most Sing Off wins

0:27:320:27:35

after eight episodes

0:27:350:27:36

will automatically qualify for the Grand Final.

0:27:360:27:39

So far, Paddy, Rai-Elle and Lola

0:27:390:27:42

are all joint leaders

0:27:420:27:43

with one Sing Off win each.

0:27:430:27:45

So, guys, welcome to our fourth Sing Off.

0:27:460:27:49

Fiona, this is Evan's first time. How do you think he's feeling?

0:27:490:27:53

He always surprises me

0:27:530:27:55

because he does have quite a steely confidence when he gets up on stage.

0:27:550:27:58

First up is Evan.

0:27:580:28:01

'Evan has found it hard adapting to this challenging song.

0:28:010:28:04

'Can he deliver a convincing performance in his first Sing Off?'

0:28:040:28:08

PIANO INTRO

0:28:080:28:11

# I stare at my reflection in the mirror

0:28:130:28:18

# Why am I doing this to myself?

0:28:210:28:25

# Don't lose who you are

0:28:280:28:31

# In the blur of the stars

0:28:310:28:35

# Seeing is deceiving Dreaming is believing

0:28:350:28:39

# It's OK not to be OK

0:28:390:28:43

# Tears don't mean you're losing Everybody's bruising

0:28:430:28:47

# Just be true to who you are

0:28:470:28:50

# Yeah, yeah, yeah. #

0:28:530:28:57

Evan, a massive well done for that.

0:29:020:29:06

I think you looked so confident up there. I'm really proud of you.

0:29:060:29:08

It was really good, it gave me a real buzz

0:29:080:29:11

and it was really fun up there on stage.

0:29:110:29:13

-I was a bit nervous before, but I think I handled it OK.

-Well done.

0:29:130:29:17

He was really strong and he stuck to his guns.

0:29:170:29:21

He slowly learned it and he got it together

0:29:210:29:24

and then his performance was really good.

0:29:240:29:26

I just performed and it was amazing. I really enjoyed myself.

0:29:260:29:29

It was so good on stage.

0:29:290:29:31

I think it went really well. I really did try my hardest.

0:29:310:29:34

Next up is Lola.

0:29:340:29:37

Fourth Sing Off for Lola.

0:29:370:29:39

Will she still have the enthusiasm and drive to win?

0:29:390:29:42

# Yes, no, egos, fake shows Like, whoa

0:29:440:29:48

Just go and leave me alone

0:29:480:29:52

# Real talk, real life Good love, goodnight

0:29:520:29:56

# With a smile

0:29:560:29:58

# That's my home

0:29:580:30:02

# Don't lose who you are

0:30:060:30:09

# In the blur of the stars, stars

0:30:100:30:14

# Singing is deceiving and dreaming is believing

0:30:140:30:19

# It's OK not to be OK

0:30:190:30:22

# Sometimes it's hard

0:30:220:30:26

# To follow your heart

0:30:260:30:30

# But tears don't mean you're losing Everybody's bruising

0:30:300:30:35

# Just be true to who you are

0:30:350:30:38

# Yeah. #

0:30:400:30:44

-Lola, that was amazing! You smashed it, you really did.

-Thank you.

0:30:490:30:54

-Well done, Lola.

-Thank you.

0:30:540:30:56

She used the space, she was very emotional,

0:30:560:31:00

she got the message of the song across.

0:31:000:31:03

I think I performed all right. I think I could have done better,

0:31:030:31:06

but I think I did... Overall, I think I did fine.

0:31:060:31:11

So, up next we've got Amaria.

0:31:110:31:13

'Amaria's last Sing Off didn't go as well as she'd hoped.

0:31:130:31:18

'This is a chance to prove she's still a contender.'

0:31:180:31:20

# I stare at my reflection in the mirror

0:31:200:31:25

# Why am I doing this to myself?

0:31:290:31:33

# Losing my mind on a tiny error

0:31:360:31:41

# I nearly left the real me on the shelf

0:31:440:31:49

# No, no, no, no, no

0:31:490:31:51

# Don't lose who you are

0:31:510:31:55

# With the blur of the stars

0:31:550:31:59

# Seeing is deceiving Dreaming is believing

0:31:590:32:04

# It's OK not to be OK

0:32:040:32:07

# Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart

0:32:070:32:15

# Tears don't mean you're losing Everybody's bruising

0:32:150:32:19

# Just be true to who you are

0:32:190:32:25

# Yeah, yeah, yeah. #

0:32:250:32:29

Thank you.

0:32:290:32:31

Amaria, that was amazing!

0:32:340:32:37

It was actually really nice to see you just standing there singing.

0:32:370:32:41

-Well done, Amaria.

-Thank you.

0:32:410:32:42

She made her own sound come through in the song

0:32:420:32:46

and she just did fantastically well.

0:32:460:32:48

It was so good! I think that's been my best performance yet.

0:32:480:32:52

The mums must now vote for

0:32:520:32:54

the person they think gave the best performance.

0:32:540:32:57

That person will gain a crucial point on the overall leaderboard.

0:32:570:33:01

I think this Sing Off was probably

0:33:010:33:03

the best Sing Off we've had so far, in my opinion.

0:33:030:33:05

You've got to kind of focus on your own performance

0:33:070:33:10

and make sure it's the best that it can be,

0:33:100:33:13

and I'm really proud of all of them for doing that.

0:33:130:33:16

So, we had three great performances again today, guys,

0:33:160:33:18

but there can only be one winner

0:33:180:33:21

and today the person with the most votes is...

0:33:210:33:24

..Amaria.

0:33:340:33:35

Congratulations, Amaria. How are you feeling?

0:33:390:33:42

I feel happy and...

0:33:420:33:44

so excited. I want to do it again, I want to do it again.

0:33:440:33:47

Jasmine, you fought so hard to get Amaria in this Sing Off.

0:33:470:33:50

What was it like seeing her up there today?

0:33:500:33:53

I'm proper proud of her! I was all doing actions with her,

0:33:530:33:57

but they all did good, though.

0:33:570:33:59

We are halfway through now, but we are ONLY halfway through.

0:33:590:34:03

Well done, guys.

0:34:030:34:05

You never know who is going to pop up and, you know,

0:34:050:34:07

take the lead at any point.

0:34:070:34:08

Anyone can sort of impress

0:34:080:34:11

and get those kind of votes from the mums.

0:34:110:34:13

You know, it will be interesting to see what happens next.

0:34:130:34:16

Next time...

0:34:160:34:18

-Oh, I've completely forgotten!

-Take a deep breath, man,

0:34:180:34:20

you're going to be absolutely fine!

0:34:200:34:23

When the music stops, rush to a stump.

0:34:230:34:25

LAUGHTER

0:34:250:34:27

I just realised that actually

0:34:270:34:29

I shouldn't have said that I lie to my mum.

0:34:290:34:31

I said five white lies a month!

0:34:310:34:33

# Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart

0:34:350:34:43

# Tears don't mean you're losing Everybody's bruising

0:34:430:34:47

# Just be true to who you are

0:34:470:34:51

# Yeah. #

0:34:510:34:53
