Eight of the UK's most talented young singers...

0:00:020:00:05

THEY SING LONG NOTES

0:00:050:00:08

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

0:00:080:00:10

Wheeee!

0:00:100:00:11

-No way!

-Boom!

0:00:110:00:13

..in a battle for the ultimate gig -

0:00:130:00:16

Radio 1's Big Weekend. GASPING

0:00:160:00:18

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

0:00:180:00:21

But with their mums as the judges...

0:00:210:00:23

Sorry, can I start again?

0:00:230:00:25

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

0:00:250:00:28

..and some seriously tough challenges...

0:00:280:00:30

GASPING

0:00:300:00:31

Oh, wow!

0:00:310:00:33

-I can't do it.

-I am a bit upset.

0:00:330:00:35

I'm so sorry.

0:00:350:00:37

..will they still want to be part of the music industry?

0:00:370:00:39

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

0:00:390:00:42

-You're not helping me.

-I can't help you.

0:00:420:00:44

The competition is really hotting up.

0:00:440:00:45

And 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 are always being watched.

0:00:490:00:51

-I've completely forgotten.

-Relax! You are always being judged.

0:00:510:00:55

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 do you think you've got what it takes?

0:01:000:01:03

That's a very tricky question.

0:01:030:01:05

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

0:01:070:01:09

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

0:01:090:01:12

# Gonna give me Gonna make them see

0:01:120:01:15

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

0:01:150:01:17

# Oh, oh

0:01:170:01:20

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

0:01:200:01:23

# Oh, oh

0:01:230:01:26

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

0:01:260:01:31

Hey, guys.

0:01:310:01:33

To work in the music industry, you have to be able to handle pressure.

0:01:330:01:36

But it's not always easy,

0:01:360:01:37

as our younger singers are about to find out.

0:01:370:01:40

Oh, I've completely forgotten!

0:01:400:01:42

Take a deep breath, man. You're going to be absolutely fine.

0:01:420:01:44

When the music stops, rush to a stop.

0:01:440:01:47

LAUGHTER

0:01:470:01:49

I just realised that actually I shouldn't have said

0:01:500:01:53

that I lie to my mum. I said five white lies a month.

0:01:530:01:56

Welcome back to the music mansion.

0:02:000:02:03

Morning, guys. ALL: Morning.

0:02:030:02:05

So we're halfway through now and we've tied, having four people,

0:02:050:02:08

one a sing-off.

0:02:080:02:10

But there's still four sing-offs up for grabs,

0:02:100:02:12

so it's anyone's game. So, Matt, were you hoping to get one?

0:02:120:02:16

Yeah, I'm hoping I'll do very well in the industry challenge,

0:02:160:02:18

but it's really competitive now.

0:02:180:02:21

Dianne, the more the challenges go on, do you feel the pressure?

0:02:210:02:24

Yeah, I just want to win another.

0:02:240:02:26

I think it's all really starting to heat up.

0:02:260:02:29

I think the kids are really noticing what it's like

0:02:290:02:31

to be in the music industry.

0:02:310:02:33

It's a new song today. You ready to find out what it is? ALL: Yeah.

0:02:330:02:37

Let's go.

0:02:370:02:38

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

0:02:380:02:41

Each episode, musical director David Tench

0:02:440:02:47

will teach the group a new song.

0:02:470:02:49

But only three will get to perform it in the end-of-show sing-off.

0:02:490:02:54

So, David, how do you feel about this song?

0:02:540:02:56

I think the song will suit the boys more than the girls.

0:02:560:02:59

There's been quite a lot of female songs and big notes, R&B,

0:02:590:03:02

money notes, you know?

0:03:020:03:04

It, kind of, leaves the boys a little bit in the cold.

0:03:040:03:07

So this one is a chance for them to just concentrate on their

0:03:070:03:09

performance and get their vibe across.

0:03:090:03:11

It's time for me to reveal the song to the group.

0:03:130:03:16

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

0:03:160:03:20

The song three of you will be performing is...

0:03:210:03:24

It's Not Right For You by The Script.

0:03:290:03:32

# If you even have to think about it... #

0:03:350:03:39

The Script have sold over 20 million records, have three

0:03:390:03:42

multiplatinum albums and have even performed for the Queen.

0:03:420:03:46

Evan, you seem to be a massive fan of the song.

0:03:460:03:49

It's really my favourite song to sing in the world.

0:03:490:03:51

So far all of the songs have been like, yeah, I really want to

0:03:510:03:54

give it a shot and everything. This song, I'm going to go for it!

0:03:540:03:57

Lily, do you know the song?

0:03:570:04:00

No, I'm not really a massive fan of The Script. Sorry, Evan.

0:04:000:04:03

When I first heard the song I thought it was a boy's song

0:04:040:04:07

rather than a girl's song and boys usually sing it.

0:04:070:04:11

# She said, is this the life You've been dreaming of... #

0:04:110:04:14

This song is definitely one of my favourites.

0:04:140:04:17

'I think this is more of a rocky song

0:04:170:04:19

'that we can all put our own spin on.'

0:04:190:04:21

# She said, it's hard enough Trying to live your life... #

0:04:210:04:24

I'm feeling great about this song and I do like The Script

0:04:240:04:28

and they play the guitar, so I think it's my advantage.

0:04:280:04:31

# You got one life To love what you do. #

0:04:310:04:35

I can't wait to see three of you perform it in the sing-off.

0:04:370:04:40

Good luck, guys. ALL: Bye!

0:04:400:04:43

David Tench is one of the most experienced musicians

0:04:430:04:45

in the business and has toured with stars

0:04:450:04:48

including Kylie Minogue and Take That.

0:04:480:04:51

OK, well, let's walk through it, like we always do.

0:04:510:04:53

But he may be facing a tough session with the group today.

0:04:530:04:56

So, Evan, you're up first.

0:04:560:04:58

So you want to play this, right?

0:04:580:05:00

# My head

0:05:000:05:03

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

0:05:030:05:09

Keep that tempo going.

0:05:090:05:11

I think the song suited Evan really well

0:05:110:05:13

and then not so much the other singers.

0:05:130:05:16

# If you really have To think about it

0:05:160:05:19

# Oh

0:05:190:05:21

# You got one life To love what you do... #

0:05:210:05:25

Yeah, yeah, that's great. Well done, well done.

0:05:250:05:28

-OK, Lily, are you ready to take a turn?

-Yeah.

0:05:280:05:31

First, I can see in your eyes

0:05:310:05:32

that this is your favourite song, isn't it?

0:05:320:05:35

No, it's not. I just really don't like this song.

0:05:350:05:38

-I can see why Evan likes this song because it's more him.

-Yeah.

0:05:380:05:41

But I don't think it's me.

0:05:410:05:43

13-year-old Lily is a power ballad queen from Surrey.

0:05:450:05:50

I started performing when I was three.

0:05:500:05:52

I get inspiration from, like, other artists.

0:05:520:05:55

# Can you be... #

0:05:550:05:57

I love Jennifer Hudson. I love Whitney Houston.

0:05:570:06:01

And hopefully one day, you know, my dream can become a reality

0:06:010:06:06

because I just want to be a pop star.

0:06:060:06:09

When she performed in the third sing-off,

0:06:090:06:11

Lily made her mark singing her own ballad version of Riptide.

0:06:110:06:15

# I got a lump in my throat because You're gonna sing the words wrong. #

0:06:150:06:20

But she hasn't won a sing-off yet,

0:06:220:06:24

-so the pressure is on to prove herself.

-I'm very competitive.

0:06:240:06:27

If you're not competitive, you're going to get nowhere.

0:06:270:06:31

I think we come from a competitive family, don't we?

0:06:310:06:34

Yeah, we're in it to win it. Yeah, definitely!

0:06:340:06:37

-OK, Lily, are you ready to give it a go?

-Yeah.

0:06:390:06:42

# If you even Have to think about it

0:06:420:06:48

# It's not right It's not right for you

0:06:480:06:53

# If you really have to Think about it

0:06:540:06:59

# You got one life To love what you do. #

0:07:010:07:05

That's really good, Lily.

0:07:060:07:08

A fantastic starting point for your style,

0:07:080:07:10

but there's still opportunity for you to get longer notes in places

0:07:100:07:14

and, sort of, suit your voice better.

0:07:140:07:16

After a tough morning getting to grips with the new song,

0:07:160:07:19

the singers are struggling to keep motivated.

0:07:190:07:22

People were starting to yawn in the group.

0:07:220:07:24

So the focus is not quite there like it was before.

0:07:240:07:27

It's been quite intense because

0:07:270:07:29

every day we are doing something different.

0:07:290:07:31

It's very tiring, just like the music industry, and I keep yawning.

0:07:310:07:35

Well, guys, you know, I know how hard it can be,

0:07:350:07:38

but you've just got to renew your energy and power through to the end.

0:07:380:07:41

Try and fight that sleepiness.

0:07:410:07:43

Now is the time they need to dig in.

0:07:430:07:44

There's an amazing opportunity at the end to perform

0:07:440:07:47

at Radio 1's Big Weekend.

0:07:470:07:48

We're halfway through and they're dropping down.

0:07:480:07:51

That's not the way to do it. They've got to keep pushing.

0:07:510:07:54

To make it in the music industry, you'll need loads of energy.

0:07:560:08:00

But how much hard work is really involved?

0:08:000:08:02

What's up? I'm OWS and you're watching

0:08:020:08:05

Got What It Takes?

0:08:050:08:07

My top tip for young singers trying

0:08:070:08:08

to get in the music industry

0:08:080:08:10

is work relentlessly hard on your craft.

0:08:100:08:12

When you're like, I can't

0:08:120:08:14

be bothered to record

0:08:140:08:15

or I can't be bothered to write or practise,

0:08:150:08:17

you have to catch yourself when you're doing it.

0:08:170:08:20

You've got to put in the hours

0:08:200:08:21

and the effort and time

0:08:210:08:22

and just be 100% dedicated

0:08:220:08:24

to what you do and never give up, really.

0:08:240:08:27

Each episode, two end-of-show sing-off spots

0:08:320:08:35

can be won in a music industry challenge.

0:08:350:08:37

And it's time to find out what the group is facing this time.

0:08:370:08:41

When it comes to the music industry,

0:08:440:08:45

there's one thing that can really help or hinder your career -

0:08:450:08:48

the media.

0:08:480:08:49

The press can be a very tricky thing to deal with

0:08:490:08:52

and in my career, I've had some real highs and lows.

0:08:520:08:54

So for today's challenge we're going to be sending you over to Radio 1.

0:08:540:08:58

-GASPING

-Radio 1!

0:08:580:09:01

Radio 1 is home to some of the biggest stars in the industry.

0:09:030:09:06

But top musicians have to deal with the downside of success -

0:09:060:09:10

lack of privacy, paparazzi and intrusive questions.

0:09:100:09:14

And our young singers are about to experience this, too.

0:09:140:09:17

We're at BBC London.

0:09:200:09:23

Really excited because we've got Lola also doing the vlog.

0:09:230:09:27

Hello.

0:09:270:09:28

I can't wait to go inside and see what our challenge is actually

0:09:290:09:32

going to be because we don't actually know what we're going to do yet.

0:09:320:09:36

Producer Nadia Dunn has worked with lots of famous

0:09:380:09:40

artists at Radio 1's Live Lounge.

0:09:400:09:43

She's going to explain what's involved in today's challenge.

0:09:430:09:47

So welcome to the Live Lounge. Are you excited?

0:09:470:09:50

-ALL: Yeah!

-Your challenge today is learning about the media,

0:09:500:09:54

because in a moment, you're going to be interviewed by Radio 1's

0:09:540:09:57

and CBBC's Cel Spellman!

0:09:570:10:00

-ALL:

-Ooh, wow!

0:10:020:10:05

Judging today's challenge is someone who interviews music stars as part of his job.

0:10:050:10:08

-How are you feeling, sir?

-Scared, worried.

0:10:080:10:10

TV presenter and Radio 1 DJ, Cel Spellman.

0:10:100:10:14

But before they face Cel, they'll need some advice from Nadia.

0:10:150:10:19

So, I'm going to give you a few tips, because it could be a tricky interview.

0:10:190:10:23

It's important to keep eye contact with the person

0:10:240:10:27

that's interviewing you. So, remember that. Keep looking.

0:10:270:10:30

The other thing to remember

0:10:300:10:31

is think before you speak.

0:10:310:10:33

And if it gets too difficult, you can just say,

0:10:330:10:35

"I'm not going to answer that."

0:10:350:10:37

Also, don't forget to always be yourself as well.

0:10:370:10:40

Because actually, people like you for who you are.

0:10:400:10:42

Don't forget those tips and hopefully he won't catch you out.

0:10:420:10:45

Let's get started!

0:10:450:10:47

The singers will take it in turns to face a grilling from Cel.

0:10:480:10:52

The two who most impress Cel and Nadia will get to perform

0:10:520:10:55

in the end-of-show sing-off.

0:10:550:10:57

This is one of the best challenges because you don't have to really...prepare yourself that much.

0:10:570:11:01

-Yeah.

-You've just got to walk in there and answer some questions. So, it may be difficult,

0:11:010:11:05

-but it's only going to be in that short period of time.

-I think nerves won't help this.

0:11:050:11:08

I'm scared he's going to ask us something and we're supposed to...

0:11:080:11:12

No, no, no, are we supposed to REFUSE to answer it,

0:11:120:11:15

but we answer it? If you know what I mean?

0:11:150:11:17

The wait is over.

0:11:190:11:20

It's time to see how they cope under the media spotlight.

0:11:200:11:24

-Hello, Rai-Elle.

-Bonjour!

-Bonjour? Very nice. How are you?

0:11:240:11:27

I'm very fine, thank you. How are you?

0:11:270:11:29

-Very well, thank you.

-I'm Matt.

-Hi, Matt. Nice to meet you. I'm Cel.

-OK.

0:11:290:11:33

-Hello, Becky.

-Hiya!

-How are you?

0:11:330:11:35

-Erm, good, how are you?

-Not too bad, thank you.

0:11:350:11:37

OK, first things first, Matt, what type of artist are you?

0:11:370:11:39

-What's your style?

-I think my style really would be alternative.

0:11:390:11:42

I haven't got a type of style.

0:11:420:11:44

I love every genre of mu... GENRE of music, sorry.

0:11:440:11:47

I've got quite a powerful voice. Erm, I sing a lot of ballads.

0:11:470:11:51

-Ten years' time, where do you see yourself?

-I see myself in America.

0:11:510:11:55

-Accompanied by Nicki Minaj.

-So, I'll be interviewing you and Nicki Minaj?

0:11:550:12:00

No problems so far... But how will they cope

0:12:000:12:03

when Cel tries to dig a little deeper?

0:12:030:12:06

As it is a competition, out of the group,

0:12:060:12:08

who would you say your biggest competition is?

0:12:080:12:12

I think... Ooh, that's a hard one.

0:12:140:12:17

-Erm...

-Erm, I wouldn't say.

0:12:170:12:20

Everyone's got their own little styles and we're so different,

0:12:200:12:23

but so similar.

0:12:230:12:26

Hmm, I don't really want to answer that question.

0:12:260:12:29

-So, you're spending a lot of time with your mum, aren't you?

-Yeah.

0:12:290:12:32

-Have you ever lied to your mum?

-Oh, yeah.

-Oh, straight up!

0:12:320:12:37

-I'm not going to lie!

-Ha! Not to me, I hope!

-No, no.

0:12:370:12:40

-I think, I think everyone lies, so, yes.

-A little bit. Little white lie.

0:12:400:12:44

-Yeah, definitely.

-Have I ever lied to my mum? Yes.

-And how often?

0:12:440:12:49

Once a month?

0:12:490:12:50

Couple a month, ten a month?

0:12:520:12:54

-A couple a month. Five, six.

-OK.

0:12:540:12:57

With some of the group squirming under the spotlight,

0:12:570:13:01

Cel tries to get an exclusive scoop on some juicy gossip.

0:13:010:13:04

There's a lot of ladies out there. You being a handsome man and that...

0:13:040:13:07

So, the question I'm going to ask you is, have you got a girlfriend?

0:13:070:13:12

-No, I don't have a girlfriend.

-There was a slight pause there.

0:13:120:13:15

You had to think about it!

0:13:150:13:18

Do I have a boyfriend? Erm, oh, gosh...

0:13:180:13:22

Erm, I currently am, it's complicated.

0:13:220:13:26

-It's complicated at the mo. What's going on? What's up?

-Oh, God!

0:13:260:13:31

Have you got a boyfriend?

0:13:310:13:34

Erm, well, I can't say...

0:13:360:13:39

I don't have a girlfriend.

0:13:390:13:41

I'm not into that kind of stuff at the moment.

0:13:410:13:43

So, all those lovely ladies out there, you're saying no,

0:13:430:13:46

-you can wait.

-Erm, well, I'm not saying no.

0:13:460:13:51

But I'm more focused on my career at the moment.

0:13:510:13:54

They've finally made it through their interviews.

0:13:550:13:59

You really are on the spot when he asks you the questions.

0:13:590:14:01

He asked, do I have a boyfriend? And then, I was like,

0:14:010:14:03

and, Oh, God, that was so awkward.

0:14:030:14:07

I think I did well.

0:14:070:14:08

I'm pretty sure everyone else did well.

0:14:080:14:11

So, now we've just got to wait and see who won this challenge,

0:14:110:14:14

so, hopefully, fingers crossed.

0:14:140:14:16

The group have had a taste of what it's like facing the media.

0:14:160:14:19

But what advice would professional musicians give?

0:14:190:14:23

The media is extremely important. They can make or break you.

0:14:230:14:26

Being famous, you know, you have to be careful sometimes.

0:14:260:14:29

In the media, they want to know a lot about your personal life.

0:14:290:14:32

Take everything that everyone says with a pinch of salt.

0:14:320:14:35

If someone is being negative about you

0:14:350:14:36

and even if someone is being positive about you,

0:14:360:14:39

make sure that it doesn't drag you down or go to your head.

0:14:390:14:42

Now, all the group can do is wait while Cel and Nadia

0:14:420:14:45

decide on the two winners, who will get to perform in the sing-off.

0:14:450:14:49

She wasn't afraid to take a pause to think about what

0:14:490:14:52

she was going to say. I thought that was very refreshing.

0:14:520:14:54

I thought it was nice how he was quite diplomatic around the competition.

0:14:540:14:57

-But he didn't look at me for the whole interview.

-Ah!

0:14:570:15:00

I didn't get any eye contact from him - at all.

0:15:000:15:03

-I thought her personality really came out in that.

-Yeah.

0:15:030:15:06

-And she seemed quite confident.

-She was confident, but in a really nice way.

0:15:060:15:09

She had a belief in her own ability, which was quite refreshing, really.

0:15:090:15:13

OK, so it's a difficult one. Do you know who you're going to go with?

0:15:130:15:16

I think I've got my two. Yes.

0:15:160:15:19

Well, I must say, I thought you handled it all brilliantly.

0:15:270:15:31

But I did have to choose two of you.

0:15:310:15:33

And the first person that we chose was...

0:15:330:15:36

-..Lily.

-Thank you!

-Well done!

-APPLAUSE

0:15:400:15:44

And the second person we chose was...

0:15:460:15:48

-..Matt.

-APPLAUSE

0:15:510:15:54

I'm really happy that I've won this challenge.

0:15:560:15:59

I did think I did well, I'm not going to lie!

0:15:590:16:01

I didn't think I'd win it. And when he said my name, I was just really shocked.

0:16:020:16:06

I learned about, if you're going to be famous,

0:16:060:16:09

you have to kind of try to keep some personal things to yourself.

0:16:090:16:12

I just realised that actually I shouldn't have said that

0:16:120:16:15

I lie to my mum. I said five white lies a month!

0:16:150:16:19

-'Hello?'

-Hey, Mum, it's Matt.

0:16:190:16:21

I just wanted to say, I won the challenge.

0:16:210:16:24

SHE GASPS

0:16:240:16:26

'Oh, my God! No!

0:16:260:16:29

'Oh, fantastic. Oh, my gosh, Matt. Well done.'

0:16:290:16:33

13-year-old Matt is an indie kid from the West Midlands.

0:16:330:16:37

I've been singing for most of my life. I've got an identical twin.

0:16:370:16:42

Both my brother and I are very musical.

0:16:420:16:44

So, we usually do jam together. I think my biggest fan is my mum.

0:16:440:16:48

Because she is really, really supportive.

0:16:480:16:51

I'm just really proud of Matt when he performs

0:16:510:16:53

and I just love to watch him.

0:16:530:16:56

And he's my boy!

0:16:560:16:58

Sorry...

0:16:580:17:01

In his previous sing-off, Matt made a last-minute decision to

0:17:010:17:04

perform without David accompanying him.

0:17:040:17:06

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

0:17:070:17:12

I was really shocked.

0:17:120:17:14

And I felt like it actually affected his performance badly.

0:17:140:17:17

I'm just going to take in everything on board.

0:17:170:17:21

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

0:17:210:17:25

Back at the music mansion,

0:17:260:17:29

the boys have decided to do a musical tour of the rooms.

0:17:290:17:32

Right - one, two, three, four...

0:17:320:17:35

# Getting out of Matt's room now

0:17:350:17:39

# Entering the hall now...

0:17:390:17:42

# Yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah

0:17:440:17:46

-# That's my room. #

-Whoo!

0:17:460:17:49

HE HUMS A TUNE

0:17:500:17:54

# That's the bathroom Yeah, yeah, yeah

0:17:550:18:00

# That is Matt's room! #

0:18:020:18:05

It's a new day at the music mansion.

0:18:090:18:11

And the mums are about to find out what their challenge will be.

0:18:110:18:14

The winner will secure the third and final end-of-show sing-off spot for their child.

0:18:140:18:19

Hi, mums!

0:18:190:18:21

To make it into the music industry,

0:18:210:18:23

you have to jump on an opportunity when you see one,

0:18:230:18:25

as there will always be somebody out there who wants it just as much as you.

0:18:250:18:29

The question is, which of you mums wants it the most?

0:18:290:18:31

In today's challenge, musical bears.

0:18:310:18:34

Oh, my God!

0:18:360:18:38

Hello, mums! Welcome! I bet you're wondering, what is going on here?

0:18:390:18:44

Let's find out. Cue music...

0:18:440:18:47

MUSIC: Teddy Bears' Picnic (INSTRUMENTAL)

0:18:470:18:50

THEY LAUGH

0:18:500:18:52

Welcome to challenge five - musical bears!

0:18:530:18:57

The mums must bounce their way around the logs on space hoppers.

0:18:590:19:03

When the music stops, they need to find a seat fast.

0:19:030:19:07

The last mum sitting wins that final singing spot for their child.

0:19:070:19:11

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

0:19:110:19:14

choreographer and trainer to the stars.

0:19:140:19:17

With a little help from his grisly assistant.

0:19:170:19:20

The mums are going to hop around the circle, in bear costumes,

0:19:200:19:23

on space hoppers... I literally cannot wait!

0:19:230:19:26

OK, Bernice, how you feeling?

0:19:280:19:30

I think I'm going to enjoy this more than I did the last challenge....

0:19:300:19:33

-I like that.

-Yeah.

0:19:330:19:35

Do you think you can get that final spot, Fiona, in the sing-off,

0:19:350:19:38

-with this ball, in this costume?

-Yes.

0:19:380:19:40

-I have some space hopper experience.

-THEY LAUGH

0:19:400:19:45

OK, it's all to play for.

0:19:450:19:47

Your children are relying on you. Let's get challenge five started.

0:19:470:19:51

MUSIC: Little Green Bag by George Baker Selection

0:19:540:19:59

LAUGHTER

0:20:020:20:03

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

0:20:050:20:08

the pressure is on for the other six, especially Evan's mum

0:20:080:20:12

as he would love to make it into the sing-off

0:20:120:20:14

with his favourite song.

0:20:140:20:16

The battle of the bears is on.

0:20:160:20:18

OK, mums, let's start. Musical bears.

0:20:180:20:21

Mums, are you ready?

0:20:230:20:24

3, 2, 1.

0:20:260:20:31

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:20:330:20:35

MUSIC: Teddy Bears' Picnic

0:20:350:20:37

Let's go. Keep bouncing.

0:20:370:20:39

When the music stops, rush to a stump.

0:20:390:20:41

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:20:430:20:45

-OK!

-Mum!

-Get a stump!

0:20:450:20:46

And there's a mum out!

0:20:500:20:52

At stump five, a little bit of a mother-off.

0:20:520:20:55

There was like elbows going on, a bit of jostling.

0:20:550:20:58

One mum has to come out.

0:20:580:21:00

Reveal yourself!

0:21:000:21:01

Round one and it's Evan's mum who's first to go.

0:21:050:21:08

This song is the first one I really thought,

0:21:080:21:10

"Oh, wow - I really want to sing this." I was a bit gutted.

0:21:100:21:13

High five. Let's move on. There's four logs and five mums.

0:21:130:21:19

You know the next round, one of you's going out.

0:21:190:21:21

Which one will it be? 3, 2, 1.

0:21:210:21:26

Let's go, mums!

0:21:260:21:27

-Come on, Mum!

-Aim for the circle.

0:21:270:21:30

Four stumps, five mums.

0:21:300:21:31

The pressure is on.

0:21:310:21:33

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:21:330:21:34

Oh, my God!

0:21:380:21:39

There was a jostle on one of the stumps

0:21:440:21:47

but every round, one mum has to go out.

0:21:470:21:50

Mum, reveal yourself!

0:21:500:21:53

Oh!

0:21:530:21:56

Round two, Rai-Elle's mum is out next.

0:21:560:21:59

Round three sees Lola's mum go out.

0:22:000:22:03

Oh, Imogen!

0:22:030:22:04

And round four sees Becky's mum slipping out of the running.

0:22:040:22:08

Meaning Paddy and Amaria's mums are the last bears bouncing,

0:22:120:22:16

but who will manage to get to that last stump

0:22:160:22:18

and win the final singing spot?

0:22:180:22:21

OK, Jasmine and Diane are still left in.

0:22:210:22:22

There's only one spot left in the sing-off.

0:22:220:22:25

-How are you feeling, Amaria?

-Happy, excited.

0:22:250:22:28

-Paddy, what about you, how are you feeling?

-I'm quite nervous.

0:22:280:22:32

Musical bears, let's begin.

0:22:320:22:33

Are you ready?

0:22:330:22:36

3, 2, 1.

0:22:360:22:41

Let's go!

0:22:410:22:45

It's all to play for. The pressure is really on.

0:22:450:22:50

One stump, two mums.

0:22:500:22:53

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:22:530:22:54

Oh!

0:22:540:22:56

Yes!

0:22:560:22:57

APPLAUSE

0:22:570:22:59

Paddy's mum has bounced her way to victory

0:23:010:23:04

and won him the final spot in the sing-off.

0:23:040:23:06

Well done! Well done, Paddy.

0:23:060:23:09

That was the best challenge ever, I had the best fun.

0:23:090:23:12

It was energetic, what I like.

0:23:120:23:13

I knew I'd be up against Diane at the end anyway.

0:23:130:23:15

The mums were really being competitive.

0:23:150:23:17

There was a few elbows going in there. It was so funny!

0:23:170:23:21

I'm really, really proud of my mum

0:23:210:23:23

because that's the second challenge won, so I'm so proud.

0:23:230:23:27

Second challenge won by me, yay!

0:23:270:23:30

Not competitive at all.

0:23:300:23:32

So Paddy, Lily and Matt will each be performing their own version

0:23:340:23:38

of The Script's It's Not Right For You.

0:23:380:23:41

Hello, Lily. How you doing?

0:23:410:23:44

Hello, Matt. Yes, Paddy.

0:23:440:23:45

And musical director David Tench has a lot of work ahead

0:23:450:23:48

to get them performance-ready.

0:23:480:23:50

How do you feel about the words,

0:23:500:23:52

whereabouts are you on the scale of knowing it?

0:23:520:23:54

I know all of it, basically.

0:23:540:23:56

# Is this the life you've been dreaming of

0:23:560:23:59

# Spending all the day doing the things you love

0:23:590:24:01

# It's not too late to do what you love. #

0:24:010:24:05

The problem is with that getting that word wrong,

0:24:050:24:08

you lose the sense of the song.

0:24:080:24:10

It has to be "spending half the day away from the things you love,"

0:24:100:24:15

not spending half the day doing the things you love.

0:24:150:24:18

OK. Yeah, yeah.

0:24:180:24:19

# We've only one life to live... #

0:24:210:24:24

I wasn't too familiar with the song,

0:24:240:24:26

but hopefully I can adapt to it and make it sound more like my song.

0:24:260:24:31

Lily's done a lot to change her song and I'm really proud

0:24:310:24:34

of her for that. It sounds fantastic,

0:24:340:24:36

but she's nervous about the lyrics.

0:24:360:24:38

# If we stay here too long

0:24:380:24:41

# Then we'll never grow old, so don't do... #

0:24:410:24:44

Ah! Completely forgot them!

0:24:440:24:46

-It's all right!

-Before that, I knew all the words off by heart,

0:24:460:24:50

and then as it got to the lesson, I just couldn't remember them.

0:24:500:24:54

My mind went blank.

0:24:540:24:56

Stressing me out.

0:24:560:24:58

Paddy, take a deep breath, man, you're going to be absolutely fine.

0:24:580:25:01

He was so worked up, he's got a great voice,

0:25:010:25:04

and he's doing really well, as long as he can learn to control

0:25:040:25:08

these nerves, because they're taking over him.

0:25:080:25:12

# You say, is this the life that you've been dreaming of

0:25:120:25:14

# Spending half the day without the things that you've... #

0:25:140:25:17

Ah! I shouldn't do that. I can't do that!

0:25:170:25:21

Keep going, keep going, keep going!

0:25:210:25:24

I shouldn't have done that, I shouldn't have stopped.

0:25:240:25:27

-I stopped singing and I stopped again.

-Here's the thing, Paddy.

0:25:270:25:30

You've just got to keep going through the song

0:25:300:25:32

when you get to the stage.

0:25:320:25:34

No matter what happens, don't stop in the middle of the song.

0:25:340:25:37

I won't, I'll try my hardest not to.

0:25:370:25:39

# My heart is heavy and it sinks like a stone... #

0:25:390:25:44

Nice.

0:25:440:25:46

# She said is this the life you've been dreaming of

0:25:460:25:48

# It's been...

0:25:480:25:50

-Is that too fast? Yeah.

-It got too fast.

0:25:500:25:53

When I was singing with David, I was quite embarrassed to sing

0:25:530:25:56

the song, because I didn't really know it.

0:25:560:25:59

You must keep that time.

0:25:590:26:01

-In fact, I'll play this drum.

-OK.

0:26:010:26:03

# Is this the life you've been dreaming of... #

0:26:030:26:06

Matt's session was great, but there was only one thing wrong

0:26:060:26:10

and that was the timing. That's a very important lesson to learn.

0:26:100:26:14

If you're on stage with a band,

0:26:140:26:17

everybody needs to understand where the time is.

0:26:170:26:20

# Oh, one life to love what you do. #

0:26:200:26:25

-That sounded great. Matt! Give me a high-five.

-Thanks.

0:26:250:26:30

Mate, it sounds fantastic.

0:26:300:26:31

The only thing is you have a tendency to rush, that's all.

0:26:310:26:34

Hopefully when he goes out on the stage,

0:26:340:26:36

everything will work perfectly.

0:26:360:26:38

David has now done everything he can.

0:26:430:26:46

It's time for the sing-off

0:26:460:26:48

and I'm really, really excited about this one.

0:26:480:26:51

Not all of them were very comfortable with the song to begin with

0:26:510:26:55

and I want to see how all three of them have done it themselves.

0:26:550:26:58

But backstage, the singers could do with some last-minute advice.

0:26:580:27:02

I hear you're all very nervous about the words.

0:27:040:27:06

-Yeah, very nervous.

-Completely forgot them.

0:27:060:27:08

I knew them about an hour ago - not any more.

0:27:080:27:10

So are all three of you planning to take the words in with you?

0:27:100:27:13

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:27:130:27:15

Right, OK. Do you think having your words with you could go

0:27:150:27:18

-against you with the judging?

-I think it could,

0:27:180:27:20

but I'd rather get all the words right than forget them

0:27:200:27:24

-and just stop.

-If you can, just try and hold them

0:27:240:27:28

next to you rather than up there the whole time.

0:27:280:27:31

Each sing-off, the mums are the judges and will vote to decide

0:27:330:27:37

which of the three performers wins.

0:27:370:27:40

The person with the most wins after eight episodes

0:27:400:27:43

will automatically qualify

0:27:430:27:45

for the grand final.

0:27:450:27:46

Paddy, Rai-Elle, Lola and Amaria

0:27:460:27:49

currently have a win each.

0:27:490:27:51

If Paddy wins today, it will put him in the lead.

0:27:510:27:55

So, guys, welcome to the fifth sing-off.

0:27:590:28:02

Today's performers are Lily, Matt and Paddy.

0:28:020:28:04

Katie, how do you feel about seeing Matt up on the stage again?

0:28:040:28:07

This is a great song for Matt and he really needs to make it

0:28:070:28:11

his own today, so I'm really looking forward to seeing him perform.

0:28:110:28:15

How do you feel about seeing Lily up here today?

0:28:150:28:17

I feel quite nervous. It isn't the song

0:28:170:28:19

she would usually sing.

0:28:190:28:23

Let's get the sing-off started. The first performer is Lily.

0:28:230:28:26

APPLAUSE

0:28:260:28:29

Lily felt the song didn't suit her voice.

0:28:290:28:32

Will her ballad version impress the mums?

0:28:320:28:34

# My head

0:28:360:28:38

# My head is full of things that I should've done

0:28:380:28:45

# It's hard enough trying to live your life

0:28:480:28:50

# But not following your dreams made you dead inside

0:28:500:28:54

# If you don't love what you do

0:28:540:28:57

# It's not right It's not right for you

0:28:570:29:00

# If you really have to think about it

0:29:030:29:06

# One life to love what you do

0:29:090:29:12

# If we don't do something now then we'll never know

0:29:120:29:17

# We've only one life to live

0:29:190:29:22

# So love what you do

0:29:220:29:29

# One life to love what you do. #

0:29:330:29:38

APPLAUSE

0:29:380:29:42

Lily, that was absolutely amazing.

0:29:440:29:46

I really don't know what you were worried about,

0:29:460:29:48

-so well done.

-Thank you.

0:29:480:29:50

APPLAUSE

0:29:500:29:52

Just finished my performance, it went really well.

0:29:520:29:55

I'm really happy with how it went.

0:29:550:29:57

Lily gave a fantastic performance because she did so much

0:29:570:29:59

of a different thing to the original

0:29:590:30:02

and that was really cool for me to hear.

0:30:020:30:05

So next up we've got Matt.

0:30:050:30:06

Matt struggled with timing in his rehearsal.

0:30:060:30:09

Will he be able to find his rhythm in front of the judges?

0:30:090:30:12

# My head

0:30:140:30:16

# My head is full of things that I should've done

0:30:160:30:22

# She said, "It's hard enough trying to live your life

0:30:230:30:26

# "But not following your dreams made you dead inside"

0:30:260:30:28

# If you don't love what you do

0:30:280:30:31

# It's not right It's not right for you

0:30:310:30:34

# Oh-oh

0:30:340:30:37

# You really have to think about it

0:30:370:30:39

# Oh-oh-oh

0:30:390:30:42

# You got one life to love what you do

0:30:420:30:44

# Before it's too late

0:30:440:30:46

# And it's killing you, yeah

0:30:460:30:50

# You've only one life to live

0:30:500:30:53

# So love what you do

0:30:530:30:55

# Oh-oh-oh

0:30:550:30:57

# You don't have to think about it

0:30:570:31:00

# Oh, ohh-oh, ohh-oh

0:31:000:31:02

# You got one life to love what you do. #

0:31:020:31:05

APPLAUSE

0:31:050:31:09

-Hello, Matt.

-Hello.

0:31:090:31:10

Seeing you smile at the end of that performance

0:31:100:31:13

was all I really wanted to see, cos I know how worried you were.

0:31:130:31:16

APPLAUSE

0:31:160:31:19

I just came out and I think I gave it all my all.

0:31:190:31:22

I really do. And, yeah, I'm actually shaking

0:31:220:31:25

with how excited I was when I finished.

0:31:250:31:27

Matt's performance was really good.

0:31:270:31:29

The only thing that let him down is looking down at the lyrics.

0:31:290:31:32

So, last up is Paddy.

0:31:320:31:34

APPLAUSE

0:31:340:31:35

'In rehearsal, Paddy had a hard time with the lyrics.

0:31:350:31:39

'Will he manage to remember them in his performance?'

0:31:390:31:41

# My head

0:31:420:31:45

# My head is full of things that I should've done

0:31:450:31:51

# She said, "It's hard enough trying to live your life

0:31:530:31:55

# "But not following your dreams made you dead inside"

0:31:550:31:59

# If not to love what you do

0:31:590:32:02

# It's not right, it's not right for you

0:32:020:32:05

# Oh-oh

0:32:050:32:07

# If you really have to think about it

0:32:070:32:10

# Oh, you got one life to love what you do

0:32:110:32:15

# If we don't do something now then we'll never know

0:32:160:32:21

# We've only got one chance to live

0:32:210:32:24

# So love what you do

0:32:240:32:26

# Oh-oh-oh

0:32:260:32:29

# Oh, ohh-oh, ohh-oh

0:32:310:32:34

# You got one life to love what you do. #

0:32:340:32:39

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:32:390:32:42

Hello, Paddy. I think you had a couple of stumbles,

0:32:420:32:46

but all me and anyone cared about is the fact that you carried on.

0:32:460:32:49

-I'm really, really proud of you for that.

-Thank you.

0:32:490:32:52

Didn't go that well. I forgot my words, but, oh, well...

0:32:550:32:59

I thought Paddy was so good with his performance,

0:32:590:33:01

his stage presence. He kept amazing eye contact

0:33:010:33:05

and he smiled the whole way through even when he stumbled on his words.

0:33:050:33:08

So, guys, time to get voting.

0:33:080:33:10

It wasn't the best sing-off that we've had,

0:33:120:33:14

everybody did do good performances in the end,

0:33:140:33:16

but holding those words really held them back.

0:33:160:33:18

I just think they should have put more effort

0:33:180:33:21

into getting those words down.

0:33:210:33:23

It's so important in this industry to be able to pick up lyrics

0:33:230:33:27

and learn songs really quickly.

0:33:270:33:29

I know in the past, I've had 20 minutes to learn a new song.

0:33:290:33:33

So, I know this was a little bit of a tough time for you guys,

0:33:330:33:36

you all struggled a little bit with the lyrics.

0:33:360:33:39

However, one person does need to win.

0:33:390:33:42

Today, the person with the most votes is...

0:33:420:33:45

..Matt.

0:33:530:33:54

APPLAUSE

0:33:540:33:58

I thought Matt's performance this time was absolutely fantastic.

0:33:580:34:01

In our rehearsal, the problem that we had was timing, but he did listen

0:34:010:34:05

to me and he did perform really well, and in time, and he won.

0:34:050:34:09

I didn't think I'd win the sing-off, so it's a massive shock to me.

0:34:090:34:13

That's why I got a bit emotional about it.

0:34:130:34:16

There are only three sing-offs left now.

0:34:160:34:18

And I really think everybody needs to step up.

0:34:180:34:21

I think we've had our dip,

0:34:210:34:22

and now we need to come out of it and get the energy back up.

0:34:220:34:25

It's very important now that people give it their best shot.

0:34:250:34:29

Next time...

0:34:330:34:34

SHE VOCALISES

0:34:340:34:39

Keep going, keep going!

0:34:390:34:41

What do you think about that feeling you get

0:34:410:34:43

when you know you've got it down?

0:34:430:34:45

You feel like you can fly!

0:34:450:34:46

That's what I feel like I can do. I can do anything.

0:34:460:34:48

-Go on!

-CHEERING

0:34:480:34:51

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

0:34:510:34:53

# Ohh-oh, ohh-oh

0:34:540:34:56

# It's not right It's not right for you

0:34:560:34:58

# Oh-oh-oh

0:34:590:35:01

# If you really have to think about it

0:35:010:35:04

# You got one life to love what you do. #

0:35:060:35:09

The competition continues at the Music Mansion with a new song to learn and some of the group are struggling to remember the words. Things get personal when the eight young singers visit Radio 1 and are interviewed by presenter Cel Spellman - what will their answers reveal about them? The mums battle it out for the final space in the sing-off in an interesting spin on musical chairs. Who will take to the stage this time?
