Last time, the group took on their most challenging track yet...

0:00:020:00:04

-This song really scares me.

-Good luck!

0:00:040:00:06

..the singers tried to keep their cool in front of The Vamps...

0:00:060:00:10

ROARING

0:00:100:00:12

..the mums made a right mess of things...

0:00:140:00:16

-SCREAMING

-Ahh!

0:00:160:00:19

-Evan.

-..and Evan triumphed in the fifth sing-off.

0:00:190:00:21

I am, like, on top of the moon. I'm so happy!

0:00:210:00:24

-Today...

-Let's mark it.

0:00:260:00:28

..the singers star in their first pop video...

0:00:280:00:31

It's all about your face, it's all about selling your characters.

0:00:310:00:34

It was embarrassing, it was just a nightmare.

0:00:340:00:37

..the mums try to step up their game...

0:00:370:00:39

CHEERING

0:00:390:00:41

-What's wrong?

-I don't want to do it.

0:00:410:00:43

..and the pressure mounts in the music mansion.

0:00:430:00:46

I don't know what it is. I don't know, my mind's gone blank!

0:00:460:00:50

# So, come on, tell me what it's gonna be

0:00:520:00:54

# I got, got, got what it takes now

0:00:540:00:57

# They're gonna hear me Gonna make them see

0:00:570:01:00

# I got, got, got what it takes now

0:01:000:01:03

# Oh, oh

0:01:030:01:05

# I got, got, got what it takes now

0:01:050:01:08

# Oh, oh

0:01:080:01:11

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

0:01:110:01:14

It's another day at the music mansion.

0:01:170:01:20

-Morning, everybody! ALL:

-Morning!

0:01:200:01:22

Well, guys, the competition is so tight right now.

0:01:220:01:25

You've all had the chance of being in a sing-off and we've had five

0:01:250:01:28

different winners. Who's ready to find out the next song

0:01:280:01:30

-you'll be learning? ALL:

-Yes!

0:01:300:01:33

Let's go.

0:01:330:01:35

Each episode, there are only three end of show sing-off spots

0:01:350:01:38

up for grabs, which can be won by the singers and their mums

0:01:380:01:41

in a series of challenges.

0:01:410:01:43

But as usual, the whole group will first be learning a song

0:01:430:01:46

with our musical director, David Tench.

0:01:460:01:49

-So, brand-new song.

-Yep, exciting.

0:01:490:01:51

-This is one of my all-time favourite songs.

-Really?

0:01:510:01:54

I am so excited to see what they do with it.

0:01:540:01:56

-I think it's a well-written song.

-Very well written.

0:01:560:01:59

It's, therefore, I think it would be good to change up and, like,

0:01:590:02:03

-do it in different ways.

-Shall we get 'em in?

-Yeah, let's do it.

0:02:030:02:06

-Hi, everybody.

-ALL:

-Hi.

0:02:060:02:08

The song you guys will be learning today is...

0:02:080:02:12

So Sick by Ne-Yo. THEY EXCLAIM

0:02:150:02:18

# And I'm so sick of love songs So tired of tears... #

0:02:180:02:23

So Sick by American R&B artist Ne-Yo reached number one

0:02:230:02:26

in the US and UK charts back in 2006

0:02:260:02:29

and this heartfelt love song remains one of his biggest hits to date.

0:02:290:02:33

And it is Ellie's song choice. Are you excited?

0:02:330:02:37

I'm excited it's my song but I'm a bit nervous cos

0:02:370:02:39

obviously we don't know what the challenge is yet,

0:02:390:02:42

so, you know, you never know who's going to get into the sing-off.

0:02:420:02:44

How does everyone else feel about the song?

0:02:440:02:46

-I mean, I just think it's quite boring.

-I haven't actually

0:02:460:02:49

-heard the song before.

-I think that's cool, though.

-I think, yeah.

0:02:490:02:51

That's exciting, if you've never heard a song before

0:02:510:02:53

-then you can bring something fresh to it.

-Yeah.

0:02:530:02:55

-Guys, do you want to hear Lauren sing the song?

-ALL:

-Yeah!

0:02:550:02:58

# Gotta fix that calendar I have that's marked July 15... #

0:02:580:03:03

I do really like this song because it's the type of music

0:03:030:03:06

I listen to and like to sing.

0:03:060:03:08

# And how every song reminds me of what used to be

0:03:080:03:11

# That's the reason I'm so sick of love songs

0:03:110:03:15

# So tired of tears... #

0:03:150:03:18

I really want to sing this song because I really like this song

0:03:180:03:21

and I think that this song suits my voice.

0:03:210:03:23

# I said I'm so sick of love songs

0:03:230:03:26

# So sad and slow... #

0:03:260:03:28

I definitely do like this song,

0:03:280:03:30

I didn't at the start, but after hearing Lawrence sing it,

0:03:300:03:33

I think everything just sounds better with the piano.

0:03:330:03:35

# Why can't I turn off the radio? #

0:03:350:03:39

APPLAUSE

0:03:390:03:42

So, who's excited for the song?

0:03:420:03:44

Good. DAVID LAUGHS

0:03:440:03:46

I'm going to leave you with David now. When I come back,

0:03:460:03:49

three of you will be in the sing-off. Good luck!

0:03:490:03:51

-Bye!

-Thank you.

-Bye, Lauren.

0:03:510:03:53

David Tench is an expert at getting singers to perform their best.

0:03:530:03:56

It's a good song, it's an easy song to change up.

0:03:560:03:58

And he knows it's not just about the voice.

0:03:580:04:01

I think this time,

0:04:010:04:02

this sing-off should be about everyone's individual style.

0:04:020:04:05

We've got a nice simple song and an opportunity to turn it into

0:04:050:04:08

something that suits everybody.

0:04:080:04:10

-You should go first, Ellie.

-OK.

0:04:100:04:12

# Gotta change my answering machine

0:04:120:04:16

# Now that I'm alone... #

0:04:160:04:18

It's like my favourite song, not just to sing but in general,

0:04:180:04:21

I love this song so much.

0:04:210:04:23

# And I know it makes no sense

0:04:230:04:26

# Since you walked out the door... #

0:04:260:04:29

Ellie's really excited to sing this song.

0:04:290:04:31

It suits her so well.

0:04:310:04:33

-Yeah!

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:04:350:04:38

Let's try and change this up now and get some different flavours.

0:04:380:04:41

# I said I'm so sick of love songs

0:04:410:04:45

# So tired of tears

0:04:450:04:47

# So done with wishing

0:04:470:04:50

# You were still here. #

0:04:500:04:52

But the song isn't to everyone's taste.

0:04:520:04:54

It's a nice song, but I just can't sing it,

0:04:540:04:56

-I can't picture myself, like...

-You can't picture yourself doing it?

0:04:560:05:00

-No.

-That's the challenge of Got What It Takes? You never know

0:05:000:05:03

what the song's going to be and you've got to try and work it

0:05:030:05:06

and make it suit you.

0:05:060:05:07

And Luka's next to try and make the song work for him.

0:05:070:05:10

# Cos I'm so sick of... #

0:05:100:05:12

Sorry, I don't know how it goes.

0:05:120:05:14

My biggest challenge at the minute

0:05:140:05:16

is to familiarise myself with the song cos I really don't know it.

0:05:160:05:19

I messed that up badly.

0:05:190:05:21

12-year-old Luka from Birmingham is the youngest member of the group.

0:05:210:05:25

# I see you walking just ahead... #

0:05:250:05:29

I have a song book where I keep all my songs and all my song ideas.

0:05:290:05:33

I've been writing for about three years.

0:05:330:05:35

And he's not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve.

0:05:350:05:37

You need to be able to put your emotions into your lyrics.

0:05:370:05:40

# I should know, I should know... #

0:05:400:05:43

You can't be afraid to really write how you feel.

0:05:430:05:46

He's already been in three sing-offs,

0:05:460:05:48

but struggled with the lyrics in the last one.

0:05:480:05:51

I can't do this!

0:05:510:05:52

But so far, he has always found a way to put his own spin on a song.

0:05:520:05:56

I've decided I want to do something different.

0:05:560:05:58

-He's doing acting and bringing out the lyrics. Love it!

-Awesome!

0:05:580:06:02

Can he do it again?

0:06:020:06:04

# So done with wishing you were still here. #

0:06:040:06:08

Because Luka is not familiar with the song,

0:06:080:06:11

it made him come up with new ways of doing it.

0:06:110:06:13

And it was really emotional.

0:06:130:06:15

# So why can't I turn off the radio-o-o? #

0:06:150:06:20

-ALL:

-Awww!

-APPLAUSE

0:06:200:06:22

I think that's the key.

0:06:220:06:24

If Luka makes it to the sing-off,

0:06:240:06:26

he should tap into the emotion of this song.

0:06:260:06:29

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

0:06:290:06:32

Working in the music industry may be an exciting job,

0:06:340:06:37

but is it really as glamorous as it looks?

0:06:370:06:39

Hi, I'm Craig David and you're watching Got What It Takes.

0:06:390:06:42

Although working in music looks like it might be all

0:06:420:06:45

glitz and glamour, there is a lot of hard work involved.

0:06:450:06:47

It's definitely not all glamour, I think you have to

0:06:470:06:49

work hard at everything you do and work ethic is really important.

0:06:490:06:52

You get to shoot videos, you get to perform in front of thousands

0:06:520:06:55

of people and it's incredible.

0:06:550:06:57

But with that also comes a lot of struggle.

0:06:570:06:59

Two end of show sing-off spots are up for grabs,

0:06:590:07:02

but there can only be one in a music industry challenge

0:07:020:07:05

and it's time to find out exactly what that will be.

0:07:050:07:08

We've got a message from Lauren.

0:07:080:07:10

You may have started off singing in your bedroom,

0:07:100:07:12

but one day you could be starring in your very own music video

0:07:120:07:15

or putting on a multi-million pound live show.

0:07:150:07:18

If this happens, you'll need to work with a creative director

0:07:180:07:20

and in today's challenge, you get the chance to work

0:07:200:07:23

with one of the best in the business,

0:07:230:07:25

who is known for working on stuff like this.

0:07:250:07:27

-Whoa!

-So excited!

0:07:350:07:37

Judging today's challenge is creative director to the stars

0:07:370:07:40

Dan Shipton.

0:07:400:07:42

Working with some of the biggest names in entertainment,

0:07:420:07:45

he knows a thing or two about putting on an amazing show,

0:07:450:07:48

from world tours to pop videos,

0:07:480:07:49

and today, he's going to put our gang through their paces.

0:07:490:07:52

Come and grab a seat here for me.

0:07:520:07:54

The group's industry challenge this week is to make a pop video.

0:07:540:07:57

Guys, my name's Dan Shipton, I am a creative director.

0:07:570:08:00

I work with lots of famous people,

0:08:000:08:02

Ellie Goulding, Jess Glynne, Taylor Swift, Kanye, Olly Murs...

0:08:020:08:06

Any major artist these days has a creative director,

0:08:060:08:08

so that's where I come in and hopefully that's where I can

0:08:080:08:10

work with you guys today, to make you guys do something extra special.

0:08:100:08:13

What was it like directing big stars?

0:08:130:08:15

The big thing that you realise when you work with any pop star

0:08:150:08:18

is that everything is about image.

0:08:180:08:19

And actually, when you get to know them, they are normal people,

0:08:190:08:22

like you and I, so ultimately it's a big collaboration

0:08:220:08:25

between me and the artist.

0:08:250:08:26

It was really surreal meeting Dan cos he's worked with

0:08:260:08:28

so many famous people that I looked up to myself.

0:08:280:08:30

I've learned a lot more about what it's actually like to be in

0:08:300:08:33

the music industry and what's behind the scenes.

0:08:330:08:36

Guys, your challenge today is to create a music video with me.

0:08:360:08:38

In today's challenge,

0:08:380:08:40

the singers will be split into two groups to film a music video.

0:08:400:08:44

They will each have to lip-synch to a famous pop song,

0:08:440:08:47

whilst following Dan's choreographed routine

0:08:470:08:50

and they only get one take to record it.

0:08:500:08:53

Before filming, there is some serious rehearsing to do.

0:08:530:08:56

So, guys, are you ready to do some training?

0:08:560:08:58

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-Let's get started.

0:08:580:09:00

First, they need to practise lip-synching the song

0:09:000:09:03

they'll perform in the video.

0:09:030:09:05

When you're doing your lip-synch,

0:09:050:09:06

the important thing is to remember it's all about your face,

0:09:060:09:09

it's all about selling your characters.

0:09:090:09:11

Group 1 have got Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop The Feeling.

0:09:110:09:13

# When we move, you already know. #

0:09:130:09:16

Group 2 have been given Lush Life by Zara Larsson.

0:09:160:09:20

# I live my days as if it was the last

0:09:200:09:22

# Live my day as if there was no past. #

0:09:220:09:24

Next, it's a lesson in how to work with cameras.

0:09:240:09:27

When you're looking down this lens, look in the middle.

0:09:270:09:29

Don't let your eyes wander. So, don't look like a rabbit

0:09:290:09:33

in the headlights, yeah? Really sell it, yeah?

0:09:330:09:35

One of the key things about taking direction is learning loads

0:09:350:09:38

of new things but then actually making it look effortless.

0:09:380:09:41

Finally, the groups must get to grips with performing Dan's

0:09:410:09:43

tricky routine with confidence...

0:09:430:09:45

Don't worry about the lyrics, Luka, just enjoy it!

0:09:450:09:48

..which is coming more naturally to some...

0:09:480:09:51

# I live my days as if it was the last... #

0:09:510:09:53

-Nice! Enjoy it!

-..than others.

-Come on, Jorja, relax!

0:09:530:09:57

Embarrassing. It felt like dancing on your own in a party,

0:09:570:10:00

which is awkward.

0:10:000:10:01

# Second time is one too late. #

0:10:010:10:04

Cut there!

0:10:040:10:05

Rehearsals over, it's crunch time.

0:10:070:10:10

Now, they have to perform the videos for real in front of Dan.

0:10:100:10:13

I'm just going to try and not get distracted, I'm going to try

0:10:130:10:16

and focus a little bit more because I find it so awkward.

0:10:160:10:18

-You've got all the crew there...

-I think we if we all be ourselves

0:10:180:10:22

-and dance along...

-Give it our all. Yeah, give it our all.

-Just chill.

0:10:220:10:24

Chill?!

0:10:240:10:26

Dan will be judging them on...

0:10:260:10:28

the quality of their lip-syncing, how well they work with the cameras,

0:10:280:10:31

and their confidence in the choreography.

0:10:310:10:34

So, for this, I need you to focus and really think about it,

0:10:340:10:37

I want this to be pretty much perfect.

0:10:370:10:39

The key to it is, don't forget,

0:10:390:10:41

really make sure that you've got your eye connection down the camera,

0:10:410:10:44

don't forget to smile, don't forget to really enjoy yourselves.

0:10:440:10:47

-Are you ready to do this?

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Brilliant. So, take your marks...

0:10:470:10:50

Dan will pick one winner from each group

0:10:500:10:53

that has followed his direction the best.

0:10:530:10:55

First record, it's Brook, Kellimarie, Luka and Erin.

0:10:550:11:00

Let mark it.

0:11:000:11:01

# I got this feeling inside my bones

0:11:010:11:05

# It goes electric wavy when I turn it on. #

0:11:050:11:08

This challenge is one of my best challenges

0:11:080:11:10

because it was quite exciting and, you know, active.

0:11:100:11:13

# Nowhere to hide when I'm getting you close. #

0:11:130:11:16

Do you know, being comfortable around cameras,

0:11:160:11:18

and just getting more used to it,

0:11:180:11:20

it was a good taste in what we'd go through in the music industry.

0:11:200:11:24

# Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance... #

0:11:240:11:29

In the beginning I wasn't confident and I was quite shy and all that

0:11:290:11:32

but then I feel I got a bit better.

0:11:320:11:34

# And under the lights when everything goes... #

0:11:340:11:38

I think it gave us a real insight into what it would be like

0:11:380:11:41

to film our own music video.

0:11:410:11:43

# Can't stop the feeling Got this feeling in my body... #

0:11:430:11:45

I think this was my favourite because it's got, like, the lighting

0:11:450:11:49

and the confetti, it just makes you feel like an actual pop star.

0:11:490:11:53

# Got this feeling in my body Come on, ooh, ooh. #

0:11:530:11:57

-Excellent, well done, everyone.

-Thank you.

-That was well cool!

0:11:570:12:00

Yeah, we just came out and that was pretty good.

0:12:000:12:03

Yeah, it was so much fun.

0:12:030:12:05

Next in front of the cameras, it's Evan, Kyra, Ellie and Jorja.

0:12:050:12:11

OK, so, here we go.

0:12:110:12:13

# I'mma dance my heart out till the dawn

0:12:130:12:15

# But I won't be done when morning comes... #

0:12:150:12:18

I Just showed my true personality.

0:12:180:12:20

# It was a crush

0:12:200:12:22

# But I couldn't, couldn't get enough... #

0:12:220:12:24

Inside, I was just like, praying it to be over.

0:12:240:12:27

And also, it was really hot, I was sweating, it was just a nightmare.

0:12:270:12:32

# It was a crush

0:12:320:12:33

# I kept saying I'mma stay in touch... #

0:12:330:12:35

It went really well, I really enjoyed the process,

0:12:350:12:38

I was really nervous before going on but when I saw the lights

0:12:380:12:40

and all the smoke and everything, it made me feel more comfortable.

0:12:400:12:43

# Yeah! Went low, went high

0:12:430:12:45

# Still waters run dry

0:12:450:12:48

# Gotta get back in the groove... #

0:12:480:12:50

Yeah, I think it went really well, I think who I was paired with,

0:12:500:12:53

we just bounced off each other really well.

0:12:530:12:55

# Gonna spend it like no other.

0:12:550:12:58

# Now I've found another crush The lush life's given me a rush

0:12:580:13:02

# Had one chance to make me blush Second time is one too late. #

0:13:020:13:07

-And cut there! Nice work.

-That was so fun!

-Yeah!

-Did it!

0:13:090:13:13

-Well, that went well!

-It went really well.

0:13:130:13:15

Fingers crossed, Dan liked it.

0:13:150:13:17

Whoever impresses Dan the most will go through

0:13:170:13:20

to the end of show sing-off.

0:13:200:13:22

He's selling that so well.

0:13:220:13:24

He needs to choose one standout performer from each group.

0:13:240:13:27

This is going to be so tough.

0:13:270:13:29

Guys, that was absolutely fantastic.

0:13:290:13:31

You all did so, so well, even though it was really,

0:13:310:13:33

really tough, there were two people that stood out.

0:13:330:13:35

They took direction really well, they really related to the camera

0:13:350:13:38

and they made that performance their own.

0:13:380:13:40

It was a really tough choice for me.

0:13:400:13:42

From the Justin Timberlake group, my favourite performance was from...

0:13:420:13:47

-..Luka.

-APPLAUSE

0:13:510:13:54

I can't believe I'm in my fourth sing-off,

0:13:540:13:56

I won today's industry challenge, it's so awesome.

0:13:560:13:58

Luka stole the show for me because he absolutely nailed it with

0:13:580:14:01

the character. His eyes just were in that space

0:14:010:14:04

and I absolutely loved watching it.

0:14:040:14:06

And from the Zara Larsson group, my favourite performance was from...

0:14:060:14:11

-..Kyra.

-APPLAUSE

0:14:150:14:18

I'm very happy that I won the challenge because I really

0:14:180:14:21

like this song and I'm really excited to sing it.

0:14:210:14:23

Kyra stood out for me today because she had so much energy,

0:14:230:14:26

from the moment she stepped on camera right through

0:14:260:14:28

to the very end and that's what I need from every performer.

0:14:280:14:31

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

0:14:310:14:34

So, that's Luka and Kyra through to the sing-off.

0:14:340:14:37

It may have been a full-on day for the kids, but that night,

0:14:370:14:40

the fun doesn't stop.

0:14:400:14:42

# I'm in the corner

0:14:420:14:45

# Watching you kiss her, Oh... #

0:14:450:14:49

Do want to learn my name?

0:14:490:14:51

-He calls me Erin and calls Erin Ellie.

-Sorry, this is Ellie here!

0:14:510:14:54

-Ha-ha-ha!

-Hello, Erin!

-Hello, Kelli.

-How do you feel?

-I feel OK.

0:14:540:14:59

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

0:14:590:15:01

-Goodnight!

-THEY CHEER

0:15:010:15:04

'It's a new day and the mums are about to find out what their

0:15:100:15:13

-'sixth challenge will be.'

-Do we really want to do this, ladies?

0:15:130:15:16

-ALL:

-No.

-Come on, let's have a look.

0:15:160:15:18

'The winner will secure the third

0:15:180:15:19

'and final end of show sing-off spot for their child.'

0:15:190:15:22

Over the years the music industry has seen its fair share of

0:15:220:15:25

pop star rivalries. Oasis and Blur, Britney and Christina

0:15:250:15:29

and Kanye and Taylor Swift.

0:15:290:15:30

But today's challenge could see an even fiercer head-to-head

0:15:300:15:34

in a challenge we call battle for the top spot.

0:15:340:15:37

Can I just go home now?

0:15:370:15:39

The mums' sixth challenge, battle for the top spot,

0:15:390:15:43

is a daredevil gravity-defying test of nerves and balance.

0:15:430:15:46

Ohhh, I don't like the look of this.

0:15:460:15:50

Providing the mums with some much-needed encouragement is

0:15:500:15:53

games guru, Kevin Adams.

0:15:530:15:55

Today I've got a challenge for the mums that will test their speed,

0:15:550:15:59

balance and determination.

0:15:590:16:00

The question is, which one will win the battle for the top spot?

0:16:000:16:04

To get to that top spot,

0:16:040:16:06

the mums have to climb 14 steps without falling off.

0:16:060:16:09

You're having a laugh.

0:16:090:16:10

They need to be brave and fast as the two mums who finish in

0:16:100:16:13

the quickest time will go head-to-head in a final knockout.

0:16:130:16:16

I didn't do any soft play like this with my kids when they were little.

0:16:160:16:20

And once you get to the top, the only way down is to jump.

0:16:200:16:23

With Luka and Kyra's mum sitting this one out,

0:16:250:16:27

-the stakes are high for the others.

-Hello, Mums.

0:16:270:16:30

Jorja, Ellie, Kellimarie and Evan could all take the lead

0:16:300:16:34

if their mums win this challenge.

0:16:340:16:36

-Lou, tough one for you today.

-Yeah.

0:16:360:16:38

-We're both scared of heights.

-Yes.

0:16:380:16:39

I've actually done this one today. How are you feeling right now?

0:16:390:16:42

I've just got to do it for Ellie, I'm not even thinking about it.

0:16:420:16:45

I've just got to do it for Ellie.

0:16:450:16:46

-This is Ellie's song?

-It's Ellie's song, yeah.

0:16:460:16:48

Thea, how are you feeling?

0:16:480:16:49

I must admit, I'm not looking forward to it and I've never

0:16:490:16:52

done anything like this.

0:16:520:16:53

The two mums with the fastest time getting up to the top of the stack

0:16:530:16:57

will progress to the next round, but there's one point I must tell you.

0:16:570:17:01

If you fall off the stack, you're eliminated.

0:17:010:17:05

-Are you ready?

-ALL:

-Yes.

-Let's go, Mums.

0:17:050:17:08

First up is Kellimarie's mum Debbie.

0:17:080:17:10

But already there is a problem.

0:17:100:17:12

There's no point in me doing this.

0:17:120:17:14

I can't get up there fast enough. There's no point.

0:17:140:17:17

I might as well just forfeit.

0:17:170:17:19

Debbie is fearless when she's singing Bond themes

0:17:210:17:24

as a Shirley Bassey impersonator.

0:17:240:17:26

SHE SINGS

0:17:260:17:27

But she's lost her nerve when it comes to this challenge.

0:17:270:17:30

-What's wrong?

-I don't want to do it.

-I totally get that. Tell me why.

0:17:300:17:34

I just don't think I should put myself through that when I know

0:17:340:17:37

I haven't got a chance of getting up there fast enough.

0:17:370:17:40

For me, it's not about having the fastest time.

0:17:400:17:42

-It's not about winning.

-If you don't do it you'll go away feeling

0:17:420:17:45

disappointed you didn't give it a try. Give it a try. We're all here.

0:17:450:17:48

You're here for your daughter. That's what you're here for.

0:17:480:17:51

Kevin's words hit a nerve and Debbie finds the courage

0:17:510:17:55

to step up to the challenge.

0:17:550:17:57

SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYS

0:17:590:18:02

-Go on, Deb!

-Whoaaaar!

0:18:030:18:05

-Three, two, one.

-BLOWS WHISTLE

0:18:050:18:08

Come on, Deb.

0:18:080:18:09

And she's off, climbing the stack.

0:18:090:18:12

CHEERING

0:18:120:18:13

That's it.

0:18:130:18:14

That's it. Good. Wow! Go on, Debbie!

0:18:140:18:18

That's it, Debs!

0:18:180:18:19

Wow! Good technique. You're almost there, keep going. Go on, Deb!

0:18:190:18:23

MUMS CHEER

0:18:230:18:25

Go on, Deb!

0:18:250:18:26

Got what it takes? Got what it takes?

0:18:260:18:29

Yes!

0:18:290:18:30

Whoo-hoo-hoo!

0:18:300:18:31

And jump. Yay!

0:18:310:18:34

HE LAUGHS

0:18:380:18:41

-How d'you feel?

-Relieved.

0:18:410:18:44

Debbie's conquered her fears and done it,

0:18:440:18:46

setting a very respectable 22 seconds as the time to beat.

0:18:460:18:50

Next up, can Stephanie give Jorja a chance to get into her

0:18:500:18:53

fourth sing-off?

0:18:530:18:54

BLOWS WHISTLE

0:18:540:18:56

Climb the stack.

0:18:560:18:58

Yes. She's off.

0:18:580:19:01

Good technique there.

0:19:010:19:03

Nice and quick. As soon as you get

0:19:030:19:06

to the top, say, "Got what it takes?", your time will stop.

0:19:060:19:09

-Got what it takes?

-Yes! The time is stopped. Well done.

0:19:090:19:13

ALL: Yay!

0:19:130:19:15

APPLAUSE

0:19:150:19:18

Yay!

0:19:180:19:20

I did do it for Jorja. I hope she's grateful.

0:19:200:19:23

Stephanie leaps into the lead,

0:19:230:19:26

finishing the course in 16 seconds.

0:19:260:19:28

-Next up is Erin's mum who does it in 28 seconds.

-Give me a high five.

0:19:280:19:33

-Then Brooks' mum falls at the final hurdle.

-Aw!

0:19:330:19:36

And doesn't finish the course.

0:19:360:19:38

I would've liked to have got to the top,

0:19:380:19:40

but I tried my best, that's all I can do.

0:19:400:19:42

Next up is Ellie's mum. Can she conquer her fear of heights

0:19:420:19:45

to get her daughter into the sing-off?

0:19:450:19:47

This is Ellie's song, we're doing this for Ellie.

0:19:470:19:50

-I'm doing this for Ellie.

-Good.

0:19:500:19:52

-Three, two, one.

-BLOWS WHISTLE

0:19:520:19:54

Yes. And she's off. Go on, Lou. Good technique there. Nice and steady.

0:19:540:19:59

The two mums with the fastest time make it through to the final.

0:19:590:20:03

-Great time there, keep going, Lou.

-Go on, Lou!

0:20:050:20:08

-As soon as you get to the top...got what it takes?

-Got what it takes?

0:20:080:20:11

Yes!

0:20:110:20:13

-Well done.

-CHEERING

0:20:130:20:16

Well done, Lou, that was amazing.

0:20:160:20:18

You didn't think, you just did it.

0:20:180:20:19

With a great score of 18 seconds,

0:20:190:20:21

Lou could be through to the final,

0:20:210:20:24

unless Evan's mum Thea can beat her time.

0:20:240:20:27

-OK, Thea, ready to do this for Evan?

-I'll give it a go.

0:20:270:20:30

-Three, two, one.

-BLOWS WHISTLE

0:20:300:20:32

OK. Time has started. Nice work there, Thea.

0:20:320:20:36

Single leg technique, nice and calm.

0:20:360:20:39

-Remember you have to get right to the top.

-Wow!

0:20:390:20:43

-Thea.

-MUMS CHEER

0:20:430:20:45

Got what it takes?

0:20:450:20:47

Yay!

0:20:470:20:49

Good technique there, Thea. Well done.

0:20:490:20:53

-Whoa! Hit me on top. That was really good.

-I think I was a bit more

0:20:530:20:56

scared of heights than I thought, my mouth is so dry.

0:20:560:20:59

Thea completes the course but is it quick enough to beat Ellie's mum

0:20:590:21:02

and get into the final knockout with Stephanie?

0:21:020:21:05

Final space goes to...

0:21:050:21:08

-..Thea. Well done.

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:21:120:21:14

With a time of 16 seconds,

0:21:140:21:16

Thea draws with Stephanie

0:21:160:21:18

and Ellie doesn't get

0:21:180:21:19

to sing her song.

0:21:190:21:21

Now they must go head-to-head in a final knockout. Literally.

0:21:210:21:25

Last one standing on the battle beam wins the third sing-off spot.

0:21:250:21:30

Thea, Steph, time to put friendship aside and time to do battle.

0:21:300:21:34

I'm going to knock her off the platform so Jorja can sing one of my

0:21:340:21:38

favourite songs, Ne-Yo, So Sick.

0:21:380:21:41

I think I've just go to go for it straightaway.

0:21:410:21:43

Straight in for the kill.

0:21:430:21:44

All to play for, three, two, one.

0:21:460:21:49

BLOWS WHISTLE

0:21:490:21:51

-Go on, girls.

-They're stepping in.

0:21:510:21:53

First mum into the pop. There's one whack.

0:21:530:21:56

-Ooh! Oooh!

-Oh, yeah, she's holding it.

0:21:560:21:59

MUMS SHOUT

0:21:590:22:00

-There's pushing going on.

-MUMS SHOUT

0:22:000:22:03

Ooooh!

0:22:030:22:05

Yes, oh, yes! Ohhh!

0:22:080:22:11

Valiant effort there. Whay!

0:22:110:22:13

So, with Thea knocked off the beam,

0:22:130:22:15

Stephanie wins the final sing-off spot.

0:22:150:22:17

What an amazing final from you two mums. Congratulations, Steph.

0:22:170:22:21

Woo hoo hoo!

0:22:210:22:23

And to Jorja.

0:22:230:22:24

-You know the song, you're singing it tonight.

-Well done.

0:22:250:22:30

-I was close.

-You did well.

0:22:300:22:33

# I got, got

0:22:330:22:35

# Got what it takes now. #

0:22:350:22:36

So Jorja will be joining Luka and Kyra

0:22:390:22:42

in today's end-of-show sing-off in front of the mums.

0:22:420:22:45

They'll each be performing their own version of Ne-Yo's So Sick.

0:22:460:22:50

-Hi, Jorja.

-Hello.

0:22:500:22:52

Musical director David Tench will help them to perform their best.

0:22:520:22:55

Let's go from the top.

0:22:550:22:57

# Gotta change my answering machine

0:22:570:23:00

# Now that I'm alone... #

0:23:000:23:02

This song really suits Jorja and she sings beautifully.

0:23:020:23:06

# Da da da da da doo

0:23:060:23:09

# Da da doo doo... #

0:23:090:23:12

Shall I do more "doo doo" bits?

0:23:120:23:13

So there's not like that bit of silence.

0:23:130:23:17

I just want to make it less awkward.

0:23:170:23:20

That's the only challenge you've got,

0:23:200:23:22

is that thing of it feeling awkward on the stage. You don't have to.

0:23:220:23:26

It's about focus. Jorja just needs to work on her focus in these songs.

0:23:260:23:31

She needs to figure out what the song is about, what it means to her

0:23:310:23:36

and then never stop thinking about that until the very last note.

0:23:360:23:39

So, Kyra, So Sick by Ne-Yo, you love this song, don't you?

0:23:390:23:43

Yes, I really like it.

0:23:430:23:44

I was thinking of making it kind of slow, soulful, a bit jazzy.

0:23:440:23:48

OK, interesting.

0:23:480:23:50

I want, like, a little bit more riffs,

0:23:500:23:51

but I don't know how to add them in.

0:23:510:23:53

-YOU doing more riffs?

-Yeah.

-OK, cool, maybe we'll give that a go.

0:23:530:23:57

So, we found some things,

0:23:570:23:58

we added an extra high note and she seems happy with that.

0:23:580:24:02

# ..you were still here

0:24:020:24:07

# So sick of love songs... #

0:24:070:24:10

It's really exciting when you add extra notes to songs

0:24:100:24:13

and they become dramatic and cool but you always have to be thinking,

0:24:130:24:17

what's coming next?

0:24:170:24:18

It might be her undoing.

0:24:180:24:20

Kyra is a 13-year-old singer from East London who's passionate

0:24:210:24:24

about performing.

0:24:240:24:25

SHE SINGS

0:24:250:24:28

The thing that I love about performing is that I just feel

0:24:280:24:32

calm, relaxed and I feel like I'm in a world of my own.

0:24:320:24:37

SHE SINGS

0:24:370:24:38

Her mum is behind her all the way.

0:24:380:24:41

When it comes to music, Kyra is very focused.

0:24:410:24:46

She likes everything to be in place, she's very passionate.

0:24:460:24:50

She won her only sing-off with a soulful rendition of

0:24:500:24:53

Imagine Dragons' Radioactive.

0:24:530:24:55

-# Radioactive, radioactive. #

-Kyra.

0:24:550:24:59

And she's hoping she can win another.

0:24:590:25:01

My grandma always tells me, if at first you don't succeed,

0:25:010:25:05

-try again.

-Oh!

-So, yeah, I always have that...

0:25:050:25:08

-Mentality.

-Yeah, mentality.

0:25:080:25:10

What you did was you mashed yourself with your brilliant high note.

0:25:100:25:13

You sang it, you delivered it, it was brilliant and then you were

0:25:130:25:16

like, "Oh, yeah, I've got to sing the rest of the song now."

0:25:160:25:19

Hi, Luka, how are you?

0:25:190:25:20

-I'm good, thank you.

-Now we're going to do So Sick by Ne-Yo.

0:25:200:25:23

How do you feel about it since the lesson?

0:25:230:25:26

-I've tweaked with some notes.

-OK, great. I'm keen to hear it.

# Gotta change my answering machine

0:25:340:25:37

# Now that I'm alone... #

0:25:370:25:40

Luka's done a great job of changing the song up.

0:25:400:25:42

# But it's the only way I hear your voice anymore... #

0:25:420:25:46

But he's not as familiar with the song as Kyra and Jorja.

0:25:460:25:50

# So I've done with wishing You... #

0:25:500:25:54

I don't know what it is.

0:25:540:25:56

I don't know, my mind's gone blank.

0:25:560:25:58

I think he just needs to practise

0:25:580:25:59

and make sure he knows exactly what he's going to do.

0:25:590:26:02

With rehearsals over, it's time for the sing-off, but are they ready?

0:26:020:26:06

Today we've got Jorja and Kyra who have both already won a sing-off.

0:26:060:26:09

We've also got Luka who's up for his fourth sing-off, but hasn't won yet.

0:26:090:26:13

So I think their challenge today is to bring something new to the table.

0:26:130:26:17

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

0:26:170:26:20

to decide which performer is the winner.

0:26:200:26:22

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

0:26:240:26:27

will automatically qualify for the grand final.

0:26:270:26:30

Currently there are five singers,

0:26:300:26:32

all with one point each.

0:26:320:26:34

-Hello, Mums. ALL:

-Hello.

0:26:370:26:40

So we've got three sing-offs left and I know how much you guys want

0:26:400:26:43

to see your kids up here on stage. Let's get straight to it.

0:26:430:26:46

First up, it's Kyra.

0:26:460:26:48

CHEERING

0:26:480:26:50

Kyra's only been in one sing-off, which she won.

0:26:500:26:53

Can she do it a second time?

# So why can't I turn off the radio? #

0:27:430:27:47

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:27:470:27:51

-Kyra, that was such a beautiful performance. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:27:540:27:57

Shall we hear what the mums have got to say?

0:27:570:27:59

I thought you did really well,

0:27:590:28:00

I'm very proud of you, it was a great performance. I enjoyed it.

0:28:000:28:03

-Thank you.

-The performance was spot on, it was brilliant.

0:28:030:28:07

Well, thank you, Mums, and thank you, Kyra, you were fabulous.

0:28:070:28:10

APPLAUSE

0:28:100:28:13

Kyra had so much fun up on stage today.

0:28:130:28:15

She sang it beautifully, we put a little extra high note in for her.

0:28:150:28:18

She was really great.

0:28:180:28:20

I tried my hardest, so if they don't like it, they don't like it.

0:28:200:28:23

If they like it, they like it.

0:28:230:28:24

So our next singer has made it into the sing-off four times now,

0:28:240:28:28

but can she do enough to take the lead today? It's Jorja.

0:28:280:28:31

So far Jorja has struggled to completely relax on stage.

0:28:310:28:35

Can she turn things around in today's performance?

0:29:340:29:39

That was such a lovely performance, Jorja.

0:29:390:29:42

-Stefanie, did Jorja do you proud?

-Wow!

0:29:420:29:46

Good girl. Really, really, really good.

0:29:460:29:50

I was gutted that Ellie didn't get to sing it,

0:29:500:29:52

but, Jorja, I thought you were absolutely amazing.

0:29:520:29:54

Ellie would be so proud of you.

0:29:540:29:56

Thank you, Jorja, that was absolutely amazing.

0:29:560:29:59

Jorja knows what her weakness is,

0:30:010:30:03

it's the performance side of the singing.

0:30:030:30:06

She knows what she has to work on.

0:30:060:30:08

She did it today though,

0:30:080:30:09

this was the first time we saw her really engage.

0:30:090:30:12

I'm really happy with my performance

0:30:120:30:15

because I did move around with the mic.

0:30:150:30:17

I used my hands and I looked at everyone.

0:30:170:30:19

So we've got one more singer to perform. Please give it up for Luka.

0:30:190:30:22

CHEERING

0:30:220:30:24

Luka only heard this song for the first time yesterday.

0:30:240:30:27

So, to help him, he has brought the lyrics on.

0:31:520:31:54

-I know you have, but you should be really proud of yourself.

-Thank you.

0:31:540:31:57

Shall we see what the mums thought? Valerie.

0:31:570:32:00

I'm very proud, Luka. Well done. Well done for going through it.

0:32:000:32:03

I know you struggled with that, but near the end,

0:32:030:32:06

when it came into Luka, it was fantastic.

0:32:060:32:09

You got yourself so worked up at the beginning, I was up there with you.

0:32:090:32:13

But the ending was amazing.

0:32:130:32:15

Luka, you're so good and you are only 12 years of age.

0:32:150:32:18

Luka, the sign of a true performer is carrying on

0:32:180:32:21

and that's exactly what you did. Well done.

0:32:210:32:24

He let the emotions get the better of him, but in the end,

0:32:250:32:28

he did power through and he did give a great performance.

0:32:280:32:32

I gave it my all at the ending.

0:32:320:32:34

I got some really nice comments about that. I feel really good.

0:32:340:32:37

Mums, now it's over to you.

0:32:370:32:39

Only one of our three incredible singers can win the sing-off today.

0:32:390:32:42

Please start voting.

0:32:420:32:44

The mums must now vote for the person

0:32:440:32:46

they think deserves to win the sing-off,

0:32:460:32:48

taking them one step closer to that automatic spot in the final.

0:32:480:32:52

That was such an intense sing-off today.

0:32:520:32:54

I didn't quite expect it to be like that.

0:32:540:32:57

Kyra, Jorja and Luka,

0:32:570:32:59

you all did amazingly and you all brought something completely

0:32:590:33:01

different to the table, you should be very proud of yourselves.

0:33:010:33:04

But the winner is...

0:33:040:33:05

..Luka.

0:33:090:33:11

APPLAUSE

0:33:110:33:14

I won the sing-off and I'm really happy. Um, very, very happy.

0:33:140:33:17

I'm extremely proud.

0:33:170:33:20

It was heart-wrenching to see you on stage

0:33:200:33:23

struggling the way you did and I felt for you.

0:33:230:33:26

When a singer invests so much of themselves in the song,

0:33:270:33:30

the audience can feel that.

0:33:300:33:33

He gave such an emotional performance and sometimes

0:33:330:33:36

that is what draws people in.

0:33:360:33:38

So we only have two sing-offs left.

0:33:380:33:39

I think it's really exciting because

0:33:390:33:42

there's still everything to play for.

0:33:420:33:44

-Well done, Luka. Let's go and ring Dad.

-Yeah.

0:33:440:33:47

Next time...

0:33:490:33:50

If I could make one song not exist, it would be this one.

0:33:500:33:53

Find the thing that's in the song that you dig

0:33:530:33:56

and drag it out of the music.

0:33:560:33:58

I don't know, I didn't think she seemed to like it.

0:33:580:34:01

-You seem nervous.

-Oh, nervous...

The eight young singers learn a Ne-Yo hit song, creative director Dan Shipton splits the singers into two groups and challenges them to create their own one-take music video, but being the centre of attention doesn't come naturally to everyone. Meanwhile, competition between the mums heat up as they battle for their child to go through to the end of show sing-off.
