# Ahhhh

0:00:050:00:06

-# Ahhhh...

-Ahhh... #

0:00:060:00:08

..are going head to head...

0:00:080:00:11

-Eeeeeek!

-No way!

0:00:110:00:12

Pow!

0:00:120:00:14

..in a battle for the ultimate gig.

0:00:140:00:16

Radio 1's Big Weekend.

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 thought you were absolutely fabulous, I got goose pimples.

0:00:250:00:28

..and some fierce competition...

0:00:280:00:30

-Wow!

-Wow!

0:00:300:00:32

I don't believe I've done that.

0:00:320:00:35

-I am a bit upset.

-I'm so sorry.

0:00:350:00:36

..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.

0:00:420:00:44

Competition is really hotting up.

0:00:440:00:46

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

0:00:460:00:48

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

-You're always being watched.

0:00:480:00:51

-Argh, I completely forgot them!

-Relax! You're 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?

0:01:000:01:04

That's a very tricky question.

0:01:040:01:05

# Tell me what it's gonna be

0:01:050:01:09

# Got got got what it takes now

0:01:090:01:11

# Gonna hear me gonna make the scene

0:01:110:01:14

# I got got got what it takes now

0:01:140:01:17

# Oh

# Oh

# Got got got what it takes now

# Oh

0:01:230:01:25

# Oh

0:01:250:01:27

# Got got got what it takes now. #

0:01:270:01:29

Hi, guys, Lauren here.

0:01:310:01:33

Working in the music industry requires you to have a

0:01:330:01:36

lot of confidence in yourself as an artist - as our singers

0:01:360:01:39

are about to find out.

0:01:390:01:40

I'm panicking about the lyrics now,

0:01:400:01:42

I've literally just forgot some of them.

0:01:420:01:44

Take one step, Katie.

0:01:440:01:46

I can't do it, I'm sorry.

0:01:460:01:49

-A lot of people are shocked when they hear me sing.

-In a good way?

0:01:490:01:52

Yeah, in a good way. In a good way.

0:01:520:01:54

Welcome back to the Music Mansion.

0:01:590:02:01

-Morning, guys.

-Morning.

0:02:010:02:03

So this is the last show before you perform for the public vote.

0:02:030:02:07

Rai-Elle, you are still in the lead, how do you feel about that?

0:02:070:02:10

I'm really happy I've got two wins, however, it's still anybody's game

0:02:100:02:14

-so we'll just have to see what happens.

-Paddy, are you hoping you

0:02:140:02:17

-can tie with Rai-Elle today?

-Erm, yeah, I am,

0:02:170:02:19

but if I don't then I've still got

0:02:190:02:21

a chance on the public vote so it's not like my life's over.

0:02:210:02:24

I'm just going try my hardest and see where it goes from there.

0:02:240:02:27

-So, guys, ready to find out what your next song is?

-Yeah!

-Let's go.

0:02:270:02:31

The pressure is on for our eight singers.

0:02:360:02:39

Only one will automatically get through to the final after

0:02:390:02:42

today's sing-off. The others must face the public vote.

0:02:420:02:45

The opportunity at the end of this is so massive.

0:02:450:02:48

I mean, one of them will get to perform at Radio 1's Big Weekend

0:02:480:02:52

and I think it's really exciting that today one of them

0:02:520:02:55

is going to take a massive step towards that.

0:02:550:02:57

Each episode, Musical Director David Tench teaches the group a new

0:02:570:03:01

song, but only three will get to perform in our final

0:03:010:03:05

end of show sing-off.

0:03:050:03:07

-It's a big song.

-It's big, it's bigger than you think, isn't it?

0:03:070:03:10

-Yeah.

-It goes from really to really high so that's going to be

0:03:100:03:14

-the challenge.

-I think this song is really, really going to suit Paddy.

0:03:140:03:18

But a lot of the girls, too, love this,

0:03:180:03:22

-the way it soars up to the high notes.

-Yeah.

0:03:220:03:25

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

0:03:250:03:28

So, guys, the final song you will be competing to perform is...

0:03:280:03:34

-Lay Me Down by Sam Smith.

-Yes!

0:03:390:03:41

Erm... Well excited.

0:03:420:03:45

# Can I lay by your side? #

0:03:450:03:51

Four-time Grammy winner Sam Smith

0:03:510:03:54

shot to the top of the UK charts with his single Lay Me Down.

0:03:540:03:58

# You... #

0:03:580:04:00

It gave him his fourth Number 1 single and spent two weeks in the top spot.

0:04:000:04:04

Paddy, you seem really excited about this song,

0:04:040:04:07

What do you like most about it?

0:04:070:04:08

I like the song because it covers a lot of different ranges,

0:04:080:04:11

it can go high, it can go low.

0:04:110:04:13

Does anyone not like this song?

0:04:130:04:15

It doesn't really have a beat to it, or it's not that there's a beat,

0:04:150:04:18

it's just a slow piano song which isn't really my style.

0:04:180:04:21

# Can I lay by your side? #

0:04:210:04:27

I love everything about this song.

0:04:270:04:30

I think Sam Smith's range is amazing, it's out of this world,

0:04:300:04:33

so it's a good opportunity to show your skills.

0:04:330:04:36

When Lauren said this song I was really happy

0:04:360:04:39

because it was a song we all knew.

0:04:390:04:41

This is anyone's game now so I'd really like to sing this to

0:04:410:04:44

win the sing-off and for me to go into the final.

0:04:440:04:48

# Ooooh. #

0:04:480:04:53

APPLAUSE

0:04:530:04:54

So, guys, it's your final chance to

0:04:580:05:00

compete for the sing-off, can't wait to hear three of you perform it.

0:05:000:05:04

-See you later!

-Bye!

-See you, Lauren. Are you guys ready to start?

0:05:040:05:08

'David Tench is one of the best in the business. He's worked with

0:05:080:05:12

'stars including Leona Lewis and Lady Gaga.'

0:05:120:05:15

Shall we give it a go?

0:05:150:05:16

And the group will really need his

0:05:160:05:18

help today to keep them sounding at their best.

0:05:180:05:20

Evan, what are you thinking about this song?

0:05:200:05:22

Is this another one that is your favourite kind of thing to sing?

0:05:220:05:25

Not really but I'll try it. I'll try it.

0:05:250:05:29

# Yes, I do, I believe that one day

0:05:290:05:32

# I will be where I was Right there

0:05:320:05:36

# Right next to you... #

0:05:360:05:38

I really, really, really, really, really want to sing

0:05:380:05:41

this in the sing-off.

0:05:410:05:43

# I don't want to be here if I can't be with you tonight. #

0:05:430:05:48

I really do like the song, but I think the tempo

0:05:480:05:51

is a bit slow for me.

0:05:510:05:53

# Can I lay by your side? #

0:05:530:06:00

This song really works well for all of them.

0:06:000:06:03

OK, next up is Becky.

0:06:030:06:05

# And make sure you're all right

0:06:050:06:12

# I'll take care of you

0:06:120:06:16

# I don't want to be here if I can't be with you tonight. #

0:06:160:06:26

Well. Fantastic, well done, Becky!

0:06:300:06:34

And the thing is if you're trying to make it in the industry it's

0:06:340:06:38

about finding your unique voice, it's about finding that thing that

0:06:380:06:41

sets you apart from other people and Becky, you just did that, well done!

0:06:410:06:46

Thank you.

0:06:460:06:48

When I think back to that first rehearsal, people were shy,

0:06:480:06:51

nervous, didn't know what to do.

0:06:510:06:53

I think they've progressed so much and no matter who gets to this

0:06:530:06:56

sing-off, I think there could be fireworks, it could be the best one!

0:06:560:06:59

But while everyone's improving,

0:06:590:07:01

weeks of singing is starting to take its toll.

0:07:010:07:04

I've lost my voice a little bit.

0:07:040:07:07

I'm not losing it, but it's getting a bit of a croak.

0:07:070:07:11

# Next to you... #

0:07:120:07:16

My voice isn't at its best at the moment cos yesterday I think

0:07:160:07:20

I practised a bit too much and a bit too high

0:07:200:07:22

and I think it might be a little bit damaged

0:07:220:07:25

but hopefully I can be OK and I can try and push through it.

0:07:250:07:30

12-year-old Paddy is a pop star wannabe from Lancashire.

0:07:320:07:35

My dream is to make it as far as I can possible, singing.

0:07:350:07:40

He wants to go all the way with it and I do think he can.

0:07:400:07:44

# Take me into your loving arms. #

0:07:440:07:48

Paddy won his first sing-off...

0:07:480:07:50

..but since then, he's struggled with remembering the lyrics.

0:07:520:07:55

Argh, I've completely forgot them!

0:07:550:07:57

Take a deep breath, man, you're going to be absolutely fine!

0:07:570:08:01

I think Patrick just needs to work

0:08:010:08:02

on his confidence, really, believing in himself.

0:08:020:08:05

He's hoping he can make it straight to the final and get closer

0:08:050:08:09

to his dream of being a pop star.

0:08:090:08:10

Hopefully, if I ever am a singer

0:08:100:08:12

I'll be selling lots of records and just performing on stage.

0:08:120:08:16

I've just worked so hard to try and be the best I can

0:08:160:08:18

and I'm still trying to improve.

0:08:180:08:22

# Next to you... #

0:08:230:08:27

Yeah, good job, good job!

0:08:270:08:30

I can see in your eyes that you're disappointed by that performance.

0:08:330:08:37

But you know what's happening here - you've done a lot of singing,

0:08:370:08:40

you've done a lot of challenges,

0:08:400:08:43

and of course now when you get tired it takes it's toll on your voice.

0:08:430:08:46

Your voice is so delicate, it's always the first to go when you're

0:08:460:08:50

tired but you know what? In the industry I see that all the time.

0:08:500:08:54

You do gig after gig, your voice is getting tired,

0:08:540:08:57

really the only answer is just sleep.

0:08:570:08:59

Sleep, eat healthy and look after yourself.

0:08:590:09:01

It's incredibly hard to make a career in the music industry,

0:09:030:09:07

but these stars have some top tips that might help you get here.

0:09:070:09:10

Hi, I'm MNEK, have you got what it takes?

0:09:100:09:13

Don't try and follow trends or what

0:09:130:09:14

anybody else is doing that's like the hot thing at the moment.

0:09:140:09:17

Keep your family really close,

0:09:170:09:19

keep your friends really close and don't get arrogant.

0:09:190:09:21

Find your name, find your vibe, find your groove.

0:09:210:09:24

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

0:09:280:09:31

won in a music industry challenge, and it's time to find

0:09:310:09:34

out what the group is facing next.

0:09:340:09:37

Lauren's left us a message.

0:09:370:09:39

'In the music industry being a great singer is not always enough,

0:09:390:09:43

'you also need to be able to win over the right people

0:09:430:09:46

'and in today's challenge you'll have to do exactly

0:09:460:09:49

'that by impressing a music executive whose job it is to sign

0:09:490:09:52

'new talent. Good luck!'

0:09:520:09:54

Top music executive Conrad Withey

0:09:560:09:58

works with some of the biggest online pop stars.

0:09:580:10:00

And today, our eight singers will be trying to convince him

0:10:000:10:04

that they're in the same league.

0:10:040:10:05

When it comes to actually trying to launch an artist, you really do need

0:10:050:10:09

to know who you are, what you're about, and how you're different.

0:10:090:10:12

But before the singers face Conrad, one of his artists,

0:10:120:10:15

Elyar Fox, has popped in to meet the group.

0:10:150:10:18

# When I saw your face

0:10:180:10:21

# I lost time and space

0:10:210:10:24

# When I saw your smile

0:10:240:10:26

# It made my heart go wild

0:10:260:10:29

# Touching your lips on our first kiss... #

0:10:290:10:31

Elyar has had over 22 million views online and, as a result,

0:10:310:10:36

he was signed and has had a top 10 single.

0:10:360:10:39

# Like deja vu. #

0:10:390:10:43

So, hey, I'm Elyar, I started out online posting

0:10:460:10:48

videos around 2012 and pretty much haven't stopped since.

0:10:480:10:53

What age did you start singing?

0:10:530:10:56

I started singing when I was about 13,

0:10:560:10:59

I used to be in a band in high school.

0:10:590:11:01

What's the hardest part about working in the music industry?

0:11:010:11:04

Staying positive.

0:11:040:11:06

A lot of the time people are going to put you down but the longer you

0:11:060:11:09

do it, the more confident you become in yourself and what you are doing.

0:11:090:11:12

The singers face a tough challenge today,

0:11:120:11:15

so Elyar has some last minute advice for them.

0:11:150:11:17

So for today's challenge you are going to be

0:11:170:11:20

interviewed by my manager, Conrad.

0:11:200:11:22

He will be picking two of you from the interviews

0:11:220:11:25

based on the following -

0:11:250:11:27

your potential to make it in the industry, your stand-out talent

0:11:270:11:32

and your ability to sell yourself as an artist.

0:11:320:11:35

I would recommend always be yourself if you're going into a meeting.

0:11:350:11:39

It can be nerve-wracking sometimes,

0:11:390:11:41

but always try to forget about that and just do you.

0:11:410:11:44

-Good luck! Thanks, guys.

-Thank you.

0:11:440:11:47

The singers will take it in turns to face an interview with Conrad.

0:11:480:11:52

The two who impress him the most will

0:11:520:11:54

get to perform in the end of show sing-off.

0:11:540:11:56

I really want to win this industry challenge, I'm going to

0:11:560:11:59

do my best, I'm going to fight the hardest to get into this sing-off.

0:11:590:12:03

I want to have the chance to perform and show off my voice.

0:12:030:12:06

I really do want to get into the sing-off, it would be good

0:12:060:12:09

just to go out with a bang, really, and finish on a good note.

0:12:090:12:14

What will Conrad make of our young singers?

0:12:140:12:16

It's time to face the music.

0:12:160:12:18

-Hi, I'm Evan.

-Have a seat.

0:12:180:12:20

-I'm Matt.

-Nice to meet you.

0:12:200:12:22

-Hi, I'm Rai-Elle.

-Nice to meet you.

0:12:220:12:24

I'm just going to try and establish

0:12:240:12:26

whether you think you've got the potential to be successful

0:12:260:12:28

in the music business.

0:12:280:12:29

What type of artist do you want to be?

0:12:290:12:32

I want to be a very versatile artist,

0:12:320:12:34

I don't want to say R&B or one type of genre of music.

0:12:340:12:37

I'm more of a rock chick, I like listening to rock music.

0:12:370:12:42

I've always written my own music and I would class

0:12:420:12:46

myself as a musician and an artist rather than a singer.

0:12:460:12:50

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

0:12:520:12:54

I've got quite a unique style, it's sort of a mix up of rock

0:12:540:12:57

and pop and even country a bit.

0:12:570:13:00

When I sing, a lot of people are shocked when they hear me sing.

0:13:000:13:03

-In a good way?

-In a good way. Yeah, in a good way.

0:13:030:13:07

So what makes you different from the thousands of other

0:13:070:13:10

people your age who want to make it in this business?

0:13:100:13:13

Some people think it's all about the money and I'm not about that,

0:13:130:13:16

I'm like music over money, I just want to make an audience

0:13:160:13:19

enjoy my music that I've made and I think that's more important.

0:13:190:13:22

I've got my own style, I dress like how I want to dress

0:13:220:13:25

and if you don't like it, it's not my problem, I don't dress for you.

0:13:250:13:28

Nothing can get in my way of becoming a singer, that's the thing

0:13:280:13:32

I want to do most in the world. All I want to do is be a singer.

0:13:320:13:35

All eight have managed to keep their cool under questioning,

0:13:350:13:39

but now Conrad wants to hear the potential in their voices.

0:13:390:13:42

# I have no doubt that I could love you... #

0:13:420:13:50

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

0:13:500:13:57

# At last

0:13:570:14:02

# My love has come along... #

0:14:020:14:07

# Wish I could have known that I was loving you babe. #

0:14:070:14:15

Thank you, brilliant. Sounded great. That's one of your songs?

0:14:150:14:19

-Yeah.

-Impressive, I loved the lyrics.

0:14:190:14:22

They've almost made it through the interview, but how will

0:14:220:14:25

they cope with Conrad's final question?

0:14:250:14:28

If you were running a record label,

0:14:280:14:30

who from the eight talented people here would you pick?

0:14:300:14:34

I would pick...

0:14:350:14:37

Erm, that's a very tricky question, erm...

0:14:390:14:42

Can I... How much... Do I have to pick one person or two?

0:14:420:14:46

If I owned a record label I'd probably sign all of them.

0:14:460:14:49

-They're all amazing!

-Easy then, isn't it? Great. Nice to meet you.

0:14:490:14:52

-Nice to meet you, too.

-Take care and good luck.

0:14:520:14:54

They've finally made it through their interviews.

0:14:540:14:57

That was so, so, so exciting!

0:14:570:15:01

I really want to do that challenge again, I had a really good time

0:15:010:15:04

and now I'm out I'm sort of thinking of little bits I should have said.

0:15:040:15:07

I don't know if I do or if I don't have a good chance,

0:15:070:15:10

I just said what I thought and hopefully I can win.

0:15:100:15:13

Time for Conrad to deliver the news to the group.

0:15:150:15:18

Who has impressed the most?

0:15:180:15:21

So, guys, how did you find it?

0:15:210:15:23

I found it quite difficult just to

0:15:230:15:25

kind of make my answers unique, but I think I did well.

0:15:250:15:28

The criteria was to sell yourself,

0:15:280:15:30

and you had to make yourself stand out from everyone else

0:15:300:15:32

and I think that was the trickiest thing we had to do.

0:15:320:15:35

I had to pick two of you and it was really tough.

0:15:350:15:38

All of you have a potential to do great things, but based on today's

0:15:380:15:42

interview and the criteria that we were using to judge...

0:15:420:15:48

I pick Lola.

0:15:500:15:52

And Paddy.

0:15:540:15:56

I chose those two mainly because I felt that they were

0:15:580:16:01

closest to the complete package. I thought her song-writing

0:16:010:16:05

stood out and I thought Paddy just had a lot of raw talent.

0:16:050:16:09

Paddy won, look, right there!

0:16:090:16:11

HE LAUGHS

0:16:110:16:12

I won the challenge, I'm really, really excited

0:16:120:16:15

because I really wanted to get this challenge.

0:16:150:16:17

I learned that you have to stay confident, you also need to believe

0:16:170:16:20

in yourself because there's always going to be people to put you down.

0:16:200:16:23

You have to always be yourself, no matter what.

0:16:230:16:26

All of the challenges have just made me think that it's really not

0:16:260:16:30

all about the voice and it is about everything else put together.

0:16:300:16:34

It's the end of another long day

0:16:360:16:38

but the singing does not stop in the Music Mansion.

0:16:380:16:40

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

0:16:400:16:44

# Nothing in this whole wide world...

0:16:440:16:46

-# Got, got!

-THEY LAUGH

0:16:460:16:49

# You haven't even seen The best of me

0:16:490:16:52

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

0:16:520:16:55

# Oh, oh

0:16:550:16:57

# Got, got

0:16:570:16:59

# One, two, three Oh, oh. #

0:16:590:17:01

It's a new day in the Music Mansion

0:17:070:17:10

and the mums are about to find out what their eighth

0:17:100:17:13

and final challenge will be.

0:17:130:17:15

So, one final performance place is up for grabs in today's challenge.

0:17:150:17:18

A good roadie will do anything to support their act

0:17:180:17:21

but how far would you go for your little stars?

0:17:210:17:24

Or should I say, how high?

0:17:240:17:25

Surely, they are not going to give us more heights.

0:17:250:17:27

they've given us them already.

0:17:270:17:29

In their final challenge - Mum's The Roadie - the mums will need

0:17:290:17:33

a good head for heights if they stand any chance of winning.

0:17:330:17:36

The thing is swinging around, there's nobody even on them!

0:17:360:17:39

They must transport a guitar around an assault course

0:17:390:17:42

12 metres in the air.

0:17:420:17:44

No, I'm not doing it, absolutely no way.

0:17:440:17:46

-Not at that height and I'm terrified of heights.

-Come on.

0:17:460:17:49

No, it's ridiculous.

0:17:490:17:50

They'll need to be brave and fast

0:17:500:17:53

as the mum who finishes in the quickest time

0:17:530:17:55

wins that final sing-off spot.

0:17:550:17:58

Providing the mums with some much-needed encouragement

0:17:580:18:00

is Games Guru Kevin Adams,

0:18:000:18:02

choreographer and trainer to the stars.

0:18:020:18:04

I think today's challenge is going to show

0:18:040:18:06

what the mums are really made of.

0:18:060:18:08

I look up there and I think, kind of scary.

0:18:080:18:10

In fact, it is a lot scary.

0:18:100:18:11

While Lola and Paddy's mums sit this challenge out,

0:18:140:18:17

the stakes are high for the others.

0:18:170:18:19

Lily, Matt and Amaria could all draw level with Rai-Elle

0:18:190:18:22

if their mums can win that final sing-off spot.

0:18:220:18:25

Coming from a man that is scared of heights,

0:18:260:18:28

I want to know how you are feeling right now.

0:18:280:18:31

I'm going to give it a go but I don't think

0:18:310:18:33

I will get on to the first - whatever it is - stick thing.

0:18:330:18:37

But I like the fact you are going to give it a go.

0:18:370:18:39

Katie, you are another person that is scared of heights

0:18:390:18:41

along with myself. How are you feeling right now?

0:18:410:18:44

If you are scared of heights, you are more concerned with that

0:18:440:18:46

than actually doing the challenge so, yeah, I'm going

0:18:460:18:49

to give it my best shot but I am obviously at a slight disadvantage.

0:18:490:18:52

That last spot is up for grabs in the sing-off.

0:18:520:18:56

The question is - is it going to be yours?

0:18:560:18:58

It's time to play Mum's The Roadie. Let's go.

0:18:580:19:01

First up is Lily's mum, Lisa.

0:19:040:19:07

Lisa, how are you feeling?

0:19:070:19:09

I don't think I can do it.

0:19:090:19:11

Take a breath, don't look down.

0:19:110:19:13

I'm going to give you three, two, one and start in your own time.

0:19:130:19:16

Three,

0:19:180:19:19

two,

0:19:190:19:21

one.

0:19:210:19:22

Let's go, Lisa.

0:19:230:19:25

Yes, Lisa, yes, well done.

0:19:250:19:28

-Now, go. Go, Lisa, go.

-Go, go, go.

0:19:280:19:30

One arm, then the other arm.

0:19:300:19:33

Brilliant stuff there.

0:19:330:19:34

Well done, that's good.

0:19:360:19:38

Go, Lisa, as soon as you touch your foot on the platform,

0:19:430:19:45

we stop the clock. Well done.

0:19:450:19:47

THEY CHEER

0:19:470:19:48

Well done. Well done. Stop, you're going to choke yourself.

0:19:480:19:52

OK, well done.

0:19:520:19:54

-Lisa.

-I don't believe I've done that.

-Tell me how you feel.

0:19:540:19:57

-I wasn't going to do it.

-What made you step out, though?

0:19:570:20:00

-Lily.

-Lily?

0:20:000:20:02

Lisa sets the time to beat,

0:20:030:20:04

completing the course in four minutes.

0:20:040:20:07

Next up, can Bernice give Rai-Elle the chance for a third win

0:20:080:20:12

to send her straight to the final?

0:20:120:20:14

OK, on my count.

0:20:140:20:16

Three,

0:20:160:20:17

two,

0:20:170:20:18

one,

0:20:180:20:19

let's go!

0:20:190:20:21

-Come on, girl.

-Oh, wow.

-Go on.

0:20:210:20:23

This is great technique, there, Bernice.

0:20:230:20:26

Don't think, just do.

0:20:260:20:28

You are whizzing along this, well done.

0:20:280:20:30

Let's just get this first foot in.

0:20:320:20:35

This is great. Oh, brilliant.

0:20:350:20:38

We are looking at a quick time here, Bernice, you are doing so well.

0:20:380:20:41

Get your foot on the platform. Well done.

0:20:410:20:44

Brilliant.

0:20:450:20:46

Do you think you have done enough to win the last place

0:20:460:20:49

-in the sing-off for Rai-Elle?

-I hope so.

0:20:490:20:52

Bernice leaps into the lead,

0:20:520:20:54

finishing the course in three minutes, eight seconds.

0:20:540:20:58

Next up is Becky's mum Linda,

0:20:580:21:00

who gets round in five minutes, three seconds.

0:21:000:21:03

How are you feeling?

0:21:030:21:04

I can't believe I did it!

0:21:050:21:07

Then it is Evan's mum, Fiona...

0:21:070:21:09

I don't know if I can do this one.

0:21:090:21:11

..who manages a time of 6 minutes, 49 seconds.

0:21:110:21:13

THEY CHEER

0:21:130:21:15

I am very shaky, very shaky.

0:21:150:21:17

And Amaria mum's Jasmine falls at the final hurdle

0:21:170:21:20

and doesn't manage to finish the course.

0:21:200:21:23

I can't do it.

0:21:230:21:25

-Yeah.

-THEY CHEER AND CLAP

0:21:250:21:27

I didn't like that.

0:21:280:21:29

With Matt's mum, Katie, the last to go,

0:21:330:21:35

Rai-Elle's mum Bernice is still in the lead

0:21:350:21:38

with a time of three minutes, eight seconds.

0:21:380:21:41

But how will Katie cope with her fear of heights?

0:21:410:21:44

OK, Katie, starting in three,

0:21:440:21:48

two,

0:21:480:21:49

one,

0:21:490:21:50

Mum's The Roadie.

0:21:500:21:52

In your own time, breathe and just step forward.

0:21:540:21:56

I can't do it, I can't do it, I'm sorry.

0:21:580:22:00

Take one step, Katie.

0:22:000:22:02

Think of the first plank, don't look down, the first plank.

0:22:020:22:05

Well done, that's right, yes.

0:22:050:22:08

THEY SHOUT ENCOURAGEMENT

0:22:080:22:10

That's it, lovely, yes.

0:22:100:22:14

There you go, Katie.

0:22:140:22:16

You are getting a bit speedy there, I like that.

0:22:160:22:19

Oh, well done, well done.

0:22:190:22:21

Go, go, go.

0:22:230:22:25

THEY CHEER

0:22:250:22:27

Go on, Katie.

0:22:270:22:28

THEY CHEER

0:22:280:22:30

Yes!

0:22:300:22:32

Yes!

0:22:320:22:34

-How do you feel?

-Good.

0:22:340:22:35

You conquered your fear.

0:22:370:22:38

Katie finishes the course but was it quick enough to win?

0:22:390:22:43

There can only be one winner.

0:22:440:22:46

And that winner is...

0:22:480:22:49

-Bernice.

-THEY CHEER

0:22:540:22:56

Katie completed the course in

0:22:590:23:01

4 minutes, 27 seconds,

0:23:010:23:03

meaning Rai-Elle's mum Bernice was

0:23:030:23:04

the fastest roadie

0:23:040:23:06

on the course today.

0:23:060:23:07

And that means Rai-Elle has the last spot in the sing-off

0:23:070:23:10

and a chance to clinch that place in the final.

0:23:100:23:13

-Ask them, I won!

-Did she win?

0:23:130:23:15

-Are you for real?

-Yeah.

-You won?

-I won!

0:23:150:23:17

RAI-ELLE SCREAMS IN DELIGHT

0:23:170:23:18

BERNICE LAUGHS

0:23:180:23:19

14-year-old Rai-Elle is a soulful singer from South London.

0:23:220:23:26

My mum is really supportive.

0:23:260:23:28

I call her my mum-ager because she is like my mum

0:23:280:23:30

and my manager at the same time.

0:23:300:23:32

She has got a talent, she has been blessed with a gift.

0:23:320:23:34

# You won't see me fall... #

0:23:340:23:36

Rai-Elle has been in two sing-offs...

0:23:360:23:38

# Ooh Sweet love. #

0:23:380:23:42

..and won both of them.

0:23:420:23:44

The winner is

0:23:440:23:45

Rai-Elle.

0:23:450:23:47

..Rai-Elle.

0:23:470:23:49

The stage is her second home, she always says,

0:23:490:23:51

so when she gets on the stage, she is in her comfort zone.

0:23:510:23:53

Now, she is hoping she can make it all the way to the final.

0:23:530:23:57

My musical ambition is to share my talent with everyone

0:23:570:24:02

and really being on stage at all times.

0:24:020:24:05

Lola, Paddy and Rai-Elle will each perform their own versions

0:24:070:24:10

of Sam Smith's Lay Me Down for the mums in the final sing-off.

0:24:100:24:14

-Hi, Lola.

-Hello.

0:24:150:24:17

-How are you doing, Paddy? Good to see you.

-Good to see you, too.

0:24:170:24:19

-How are you doing, Rai-Elle?

-I am good, thank you.

0:24:190:24:22

But first, musical director David Tench has one last session

0:24:220:24:25

to help them perfect their performances.

0:24:250:24:28

I am not looking really to belt this one,

0:24:280:24:30

-I am looking to try and put more feeling into it.

-OK, all right.

0:24:300:24:33

And I've also changed up... # Next to you. #

0:24:330:24:37

Oh, have you?

0:24:370:24:38

# Next to you

0:24:380:24:41

# Next to you. #

0:24:410:24:43

-That sounds great.

-Shall I try that?

-Yeah.

0:24:430:24:46

# I don't want to be here... #

0:24:460:24:49

Today was new Paddy. He was like a completely new person.

0:24:490:24:52

He came into the rehearsal and he said I want to change it up,

0:24:520:24:55

I want to try this, so we started experimenting.

0:24:550:24:58

Fantastic. Really good.

0:24:580:25:00

Yeah, I was playing with it a little bit, but I think...

0:25:000:25:02

Paddy, but that's new for me,

0:25:020:25:03

hearing you play with the tune like that.

0:25:030:25:06

Has this competition changed you?

0:25:060:25:08

Yeah, I think I needed to step my game up so, yeah, I just thought and

0:25:080:25:11

thought and thought, cos it weren't working how I was singing it.

0:25:110:25:14

You've grown so much, Paddy.

0:25:140:25:16

-Thanks.

-It sounded fantastic.

0:25:160:25:18

Have you had any more thoughts since our piano rehearsal?

0:25:180:25:21

Yeah, I'm against two very strong singers,

0:25:210:25:24

and that's not my forte,

0:25:240:25:26

so I think what I'm focusing on is

0:25:260:25:28

-trying to make the emotion raw.

-Yeah.

0:25:280:25:29

That's what I want to give across.

0:25:290:25:31

# I'll take care of you-u-u... #

0:25:310:25:34

One of Lola's strengths is her ability to...

0:25:340:25:36

# I don't want to be here if I... #

0:25:360:25:39

..take any song and really, kind of, add her own style to it.

0:25:390:25:42

It's sort of that creative artist in her.

0:25:420:25:44

# Tonight. #

0:25:440:25:46

Yeah, and then I can play with you at the end, as well.

0:25:460:25:48

-You think that was...?

-That'll be a cool moment,

0:25:480:25:51

if I suddenly came in.

0:25:510:25:52

-Cos they wouldn't expect it, would they?

-No, exactly.

0:25:520:25:54

'I think she gives a fantastic, mature performance.'

0:25:540:25:57

She's always trying to find a new way to impress

0:25:570:26:00

the mums, the judges.

0:26:000:26:02

# Toni-i-ght. #

0:26:020:26:05

Fantastic. Well done.

0:26:050:26:07

I just want to try one key up,

0:26:070:26:10

just to see if you can still take

0:26:100:26:13

it on those high notes, because the verse then will come out a bit more.

0:26:130:26:16

# Told me not to cry... #

0:26:160:26:18

'David put me on a higher key,

0:26:180:26:20

'higher than Sam Smith's,'

0:26:200:26:22

and he was pleased with it,

0:26:220:26:24

and so was I, and I was really proud of myself.

0:26:240:26:26

One thing I would say is,

0:26:260:26:28

try and slow that verse down just a little touch. Imagine you're just

0:26:280:26:32

-singing to that one person who's right next to you.

-OK.

0:26:320:26:35

# Yes, I do, I believe... #

0:26:350:26:37

Rai-Elle is so confident. She just spends this bit of time

0:26:370:26:40

beforehand thinking it through,

0:26:400:26:41

and then she just delivers.

0:26:410:26:43

# ..Oo-o-o. #

0:26:430:26:46

HE IMITATES APPLAUSE

0:26:460:26:48

-Whoo.

-Yeah!

-I was like, "I'm not going to hit this note."

0:26:480:26:51

But you did.

0:26:530:26:54

-Wow, well done, Rai-Elle, that's mega.

-Thank you.

0:26:540:26:56

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

0:26:560:26:59

I'm back for the final sing-off, and obviously only one kid

0:27:030:27:06

can win that automatic qualification in the final.

0:27:060:27:08

I think it's going to be an amazing sing-off

0:27:080:27:10

so I'm really excited to see how they all do it individually.

0:27:100:27:14

This is the final sing-off in the Music Mansion.

0:27:140:27:17

For the last time, the mums will decide who is their winner.

0:27:170:27:20

The person with the most

0:27:220:27:23

sing-off wins in total will take

0:27:230:27:25

the automatic place in the final.

0:27:250:27:27

Currently, Rai-Elle is in the lead

0:27:290:27:30

with two wins, but if Paddy or Lola

0:27:300:27:32

win the final sing-off,

0:27:320:27:34

they can draw level.

0:27:340:27:35

In the event of a tie,

0:27:350:27:37

the singer who has been in the most

0:27:370:27:38

sing-offs wins, and gets

0:27:380:27:40

straight through to the final.

0:27:400:27:41

I'm kind of in the middle between taking it up a semitone

0:27:410:27:46

or keeping it in the key that I was in before.

0:27:460:27:48

I don't know really what I'm going to do.

0:27:480:27:50

Hi, guys, I'm panicking about the lyrics now -

0:27:500:27:53

I've literally just forgot some of them.

0:27:530:27:55

HE GROANS

0:27:550:27:56

I'm really nervous and I feel sick.

0:27:560:27:58

This is horrible.

0:27:580:28:00

I just really need to get up there and do it.

0:28:000:28:03

Hey, mums, and welcome to the eighth and final sing-off

0:28:060:28:09

before the public vote.

0:28:090:28:10

I'm sure I don't need to remind you, mums,

0:28:100:28:12

but there's only one automatic qualification spot in the final,

0:28:120:28:15

and any one of the singers in the sing-off can take it.

0:28:150:28:18

Imogen, how do you feel about Lola being in the final sing-off?

0:28:180:28:22

I'm really looking forward to seeing Lola perform tonight.

0:28:220:28:24

I'm really nervous, for her and for me.

0:28:240:28:27

Bernice, you worked really hard to get Rai-Elle

0:28:270:28:30

in the sing-off today - how are you feeling?

0:28:300:28:32

I'm really excited for her. I just want her to go up there,

0:28:320:28:34

do her best and enjoy herself, as well.

0:28:340:28:36

They've all done so well.

0:28:360:28:38

So let's get the sing-off started.

0:28:380:28:39

First up is Lola.

0:28:390:28:41

Lola's prepared an emotional rendition of the song.

0:28:420:28:44

Will it help her win in her seventh sing-off?

0:28:440:28:48

# Yes, I do, I believe that one day I will be where I was

0:28:490:28:54

# Right there, right next to you

0:28:540:28:58

# And it's hard The days just seem so dark

0:28:580:29:01

# The moon, the stars are nothing without you

0:29:010:29:05

# Can I lay by your side?

0:29:050:29:11

# Next to yo-u-u?

0:29:130:29:17

# And I don't want to be here

0:29:170:29:19

# If I can't be with you tonight

0:29:190:29:24

# Come on

0:29:240:29:26

# Just lay me by your side

0:29:280:29:34

# Oh

0:29:340:29:36

# Can I lay by your side?

0:29:360:29:41

# Toni-i-ght? #

0:29:420:29:47

Thank you. Thank you.

0:29:490:29:51

Lola, well done. That was so, so great.

0:29:510:29:55

'Lola's performance was incredible.'

0:29:550:29:57

She took a ballad and she played it on the guitar,

0:29:570:30:00

and then she had the piano come in,

0:30:000:30:01

which was such a surprise. I thought it was amazing.

0:30:010:30:04

So next up, we've got Paddy.

0:30:040:30:05

Paddy's been battling a sore throat, as well as nerves,

0:30:070:30:09

but he really wants to impress the mums.

0:30:090:30:12

# Yes, I do, I believe that one day I will be where I was

0:30:140:30:20

# Right there, right next to you

0:30:200:30:23

# And it's hard The day just seems so dark

0:30:230:30:26

# The moon, the stars are nothing without you

0:30:260:30:31

# Can I lay down by your si-i-ide?

0:30:310:30:36

# Next to you?

0:30:390:30:43

# Next to yo-u-u?

0:30:430:30:47

# I don't want to be there if I can't be with you

0:30:470:30:52

# Toni-i-ight

0:30:520:30:57

# Lay me by your side tonight

0:30:590:31:07

# Can I lay by your side? #

0:31:070:31:14

Paddy, you should be so proud of yourself

0:31:170:31:19

-cos I know everybody else is. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:31:190:31:21

Paddy fumbled on one word, and yet you would never know it.

0:31:210:31:26

He just kept going. He came across like a true professional.

0:31:260:31:31

So last up is Rai-Elle.

0:31:310:31:33

Rai-Elle's hoping she can do enough

0:31:340:31:36

to make it three out of three wins today.

0:31:360:31:38

# Yes, I do, I believe that one day I will be where I was

0:31:410:31:47

# Right there Right next to you

0:31:470:31:50

# And it's hard The days just seem so dark

0:31:500:31:53

# The moon and the stars are nothing without you

0:31:530:31:57

# Told me not to cry when you were go-o-ne

0:31:570:32:04

# Can I lay by your si-i-de?

0:32:060:32:13

# Next to you?

0:32:140:32:19

# Y-o-ou?

0:32:190:32:23

# And make sure you're all right?

0:32:230:32:30

# I'll take care of you-u-u

0:32:300:32:36

# Yo-o-u-u. #

0:32:360:32:43

Rai-Elle, you absolutely smashed that. Well done.

0:32:480:32:51

Thank you very much.

0:32:510:32:53

'She was note-perfect. Her big notes...'

0:32:540:32:57

I've never, ever heard notes like that

0:32:570:32:59

come out of a 14-year-old before.

0:32:590:33:01

Three amazing performances, it's time to vote.

0:33:010:33:04

I thought the final sing-off was actually one of the best

0:33:060:33:09

sing-offs we've had so far.

0:33:090:33:11

All three singers in the sing-off today are different,

0:33:110:33:13

they've got a different approach, and they're developing

0:33:130:33:16

as artists, and that's great -

0:33:160:33:18

that's what we're here to help them do.

0:33:180:33:20

This is the closest one we've had so far -

0:33:240:33:27

the decision was split by just one vote.

0:33:270:33:29

And the winner is...

0:33:310:33:33

..Rai-Elle.

0:33:380:33:39

APPLAUSE

0:33:390:33:41

Rai-Elle smashed it today - she just knocked it out the park.

0:33:420:33:46

It was actually her best sing-off.

0:33:460:33:47

She really deserved to win.

0:33:470:33:49

I am so happy. I-I'm speechless.

0:33:490:33:53

I didn't expect it, but I tried my best so I'm happy that I won.

0:33:530:33:57

I couldn't be more proud of Rai-Elle - she knows that.

0:33:570:34:00

So with three sing-off wins, Rai-Elle tops the leaderboard

0:34:000:34:03

and goes straight through to the grand final.

0:34:030:34:06

The remaining singers must face the public vote

0:34:060:34:09

to see which three will join her.

0:34:090:34:10

It's so hard when it comes to public voting.

0:34:100:34:12

You don't know who they're going to like,

0:34:120:34:14

and who they're not going to like.

0:34:140:34:16

Rai-Elle's definitely in the final,

0:34:160:34:18

but what about the others?

0:34:180:34:19

I'm VERY excited to see what happens.

0:34:190:34:22

Next time...

0:34:220:34:24

THEY SING VARIOUS NOTES

0:34:240:34:28

Really, really important

0:34:290:34:31

that they connect with the public.

0:34:310:34:33

THEY SING VARIOUS NOTES

0:34:330:34:37

I have no idea who's going to be in the final.

0:34:370:34:40

It's anybody's guess.

0:34:400:34:41

# Can I lay by your side?

0:34:410:34:48

# Next to you-u-u?

0:34:490:34:53

# You-u-u-u...? #

0:34:540:34:57

Tensions are high as the young singers battle it out for their last chance to gain that automatic spot in the final. Music maestro David Tench is impressed at the progress of all the contestants, but who will qualify to sing a Sam Smith song in the sing-off? The children are challenged to promote themselves to a music label manager with help from pop star Elyar Fox, while the mums go above and beyond for their child and tackle a demanding high ropes course.
