0:00:340:00:36

# Don't want to break your heart

# I know you're scared... #

0:00:400:00:41

..Demi Lovato.

0:00:410:00:43

The all singing, dancing and acting former Disney star

0:00:430:00:46

who's become a totally awesome. Pop-Rock Princess!

0:00:460:00:50

She's huge but how will she fare against the awesome pop of...

0:00:510:00:55

# All I need's a little love in my life... #

0:00:550:00:58

..Rixton.

0:00:580:01:00

Jake, Danny, Charley and Lewi.

0:01:000:01:02

They're the home grown lads from the North who are now

0:01:020:01:05

breaking hearts all over the world.

0:01:050:01:07

This Pop Slam is going to be totes amaze.

0:01:080:01:11

So, whose team are you on?

0:01:110:01:13

Team Demi or Team Rixton?

0:01:130:01:15

If you can't decide then take a seat and get comfy

0:01:150:01:19

cos I'm going to be delving into the lives of these superstars

0:01:190:01:22

to see who has what it takes to win the ultimate prize in pop,

0:01:220:01:25

The Ambo!

0:01:250:01:27

There's only one way to win the Ambo

0:01:270:01:29

and that's by gaining as many of my Ambo points as possible.

0:01:290:01:34

I'll be dishing them out over three slamming rounds of popocity.

0:01:340:01:38

Where I meet the people who knew the stars back in the day,

0:01:380:01:41

then I check out how hard they've been working,

0:01:410:01:44

And, finally, I scrutinise their style.

0:01:440:01:47

All before the big moment.

0:01:470:01:49

And the winner of the Ambo is...

0:01:490:01:52

This is going to be big, so head to the CBBC website and tell us

0:01:520:01:56

whose team you're on.

0:01:560:01:58

I'm on Team Demi lovato.

0:01:580:02:01

Cos nothing can beat her.

0:02:010:02:02

Especially her style.

0:02:020:02:04

She's really inspirational.

0:02:040:02:06

Her songs are just like angels singing to me.

0:02:060:02:09

I am on Team Rixton.

0:02:090:02:11

They've got great lyrics and they've all got great voices,

0:02:110:02:14

well, all pop stars have.

0:02:140:02:16

We think that they're awesome singers

0:02:160:02:18

and we love their music, don't we?

0:02:180:02:20

It's going to be a tough one.

0:02:200:02:22

Demi's got the whole rock vibe going on...and so have these guys.

0:02:220:02:25

Demi's got awesome songs and so have these guys.

0:02:250:02:28

Who do you think is going to win?

0:02:280:02:30

SHE SCREAMS

0:02:300:02:31

There's only one way to decide this.

0:02:310:02:33

It's time, for Pop Slam!

0:02:330:02:35

Round one, Pop Potential.

0:02:380:02:41

This round is all about how our stars made it big.

0:02:410:02:44

First up, Demi Lovato.

0:02:440:02:47

# Don't surrender, surrender, surrender... #

0:02:470:02:50

Demi Lovato might be rocking stages all over the world right now...

0:02:520:02:56

# We were so in love back then,

0:02:570:02:59

# Now you're listening to what they say... #

0:02:590:03:01

But before all that, she was

0:03:010:03:03

a little pageant performer right here, in Dallas, Texas.

0:03:030:03:07

Yeehaw!

0:03:070:03:08

This is Collyville, Texas.

0:03:120:03:15

It's just outside of Dallas and it's where one Demi Lovato grew up.

0:03:150:03:19

Back then, she was just a tap-dancing kid

0:03:190:03:21

who loved performing in beauty pageants.

0:03:210:03:23

This is the story of how a Texan girl became

0:03:230:03:26

one of the biggest names in pop.

0:03:260:03:28

# You'll be coming home with me tonight

0:03:280:03:32

# And we'll be burning up like neon lights... #

0:03:320:03:35

Demi loved music and this is the very house

0:03:350:03:39

where she taught herself to play the piano and drums.

0:03:390:03:42

She had her sights set on becoming a star

0:03:420:03:45

and started entering local talent competitions.

0:03:450:03:48

And then, at age eight,

0:03:480:03:49

she won the Texas State Cinderella Miniature Miss.

0:03:490:03:52

Nice one, Demi.

0:03:520:03:55

For being a Cinderella Miniature Miss,

0:03:550:03:58

I'm giving you two Ambo Points,

0:03:580:04:00

Little Miss Lovato.

0:04:000:04:01

Pageants were great, but it was when Demi was ten,

0:04:030:04:06

she saw an advert for a TV audition that would change her life forever.

0:04:060:04:10

That audition was for a hit children's show, Barney And Friends.

0:04:100:04:14

1,400 girls showed up that day,

0:04:140:04:16

and who should Demi end up sitting next to?

0:04:160:04:19

None other than future BFF, Selena Gomez!

0:04:190:04:23

Both Demi and Selena got roles on the show.

0:04:230:04:26

Here they are on set.

0:04:260:04:27

Demi's on the left and Selena on the right - if you can't tell.

0:04:270:04:31

Demi, have four Ambo Points for bagging a role

0:04:310:04:34

on a world famous TV show.

0:04:340:04:37

Demi was one lucky girl,

0:04:370:04:39

she had an awesome TV job

0:04:390:04:41

and a future celeb friend!

0:04:410:04:43

And get this - I'm going to check out the studio

0:04:430:04:45

where she made her first step into TV. Woop!

0:04:450:04:49

# Never put my love out on the line

0:04:490:04:51

# Never said yes to the right guy.

0:04:510:04:54

# Never had trouble... #

0:04:540:04:55

MUSIC SLOWS TO A HALT

0:04:550:04:57

What? Major sad times,

0:04:580:05:00

but old Barney And Friends' TV studio is now a chair warehouse.

0:05:000:05:05

But that hasn't stopped me before,

0:05:050:05:07

so I'm here to meet Shelley Aubrey -

0:05:070:05:09

a performance director who cast Demi on the show.

0:05:090:05:12

Take me back to Demi's audition for the show. What was she like?

0:05:130:05:17

She was beautiful. She had the sparkle. She had IT!

0:05:170:05:20

Her face always shined, but...

0:05:200:05:23

not real sure about the dancing.

0:05:230:05:25

SHE LAUGHS Let's see, the word... A clutz.

0:05:250:05:27

-Oh, really?

-Oh, yeah, and that's why I'm shocked

0:05:270:05:30

when I see some of her tours or see what she's...

0:05:300:05:33

Oh, well, she's learned some lessons.

0:05:330:05:35

Maybe I wasn't a good enough teacher.

0:05:350:05:37

-Were Demi and Selena probably your best?

-I guess they were.

0:05:370:05:40

She and Selena would do little plays after we had gone off

0:05:400:05:42

in their room and they would write their own little things.

0:05:420:05:45

Usually, Selena was writing

0:05:450:05:47

and being the ogre or something

0:05:470:05:49

and Demi was singing and being the queen or princess.

0:05:490:05:52

# I think I'd have a heart attack

0:05:520:05:58

# I think I'd have a heart attack...#

0:05:580:06:01

Demi was on Barney And Friends for two years

0:06:010:06:04

It's been great seeing the warehouse,

0:06:040:06:06

but what's even better is that Shelley's brought

0:06:060:06:09

some old Barney photos to show me.

0:06:090:06:11

These are some of my memorabilia of some of the shoots.

0:06:110:06:14

There's Demi,

0:06:140:06:16

with Selena right next to her.

0:06:160:06:18

-Oh! That's so cute!

-And this is another series.

0:06:180:06:21

-There's Demi...with Selena right next to her.

-They were always together?

0:06:210:06:24

They were always together in these pictures.

0:06:240:06:27

Shelley, thank you so much, it has been such a treat. Bring it in.

0:06:270:06:30

Oh, you are welcome. Thank you.

0:06:300:06:32

I might need you to show me out, though.

0:06:340:06:36

I might need help too.

0:06:360:06:38

# I think I'd have a heart attack

0:06:380:06:43

# I think I'd have a heart attack

0:06:430:06:48

# I think I'd have a heart attack. #

0:06:480:06:51

After Barney And Friends, Demi's BFF Selena moved to LA,

0:06:510:06:55

so what better time to pack up your bags

0:06:550:06:58

and move across country in search of your dreams?

0:06:580:07:01

# I should have known when I got you alone... #

0:07:010:07:04

This was a really brave move for a teenage Demi,

0:07:040:07:07

but one that paid off big time because,

0:07:070:07:10

in 2008, Demi scored the starring role

0:07:100:07:14

in hit TV Movie Camp Rock.

0:07:140:07:17

# This is real, this is me

0:07:170:07:19

# I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be now... #

0:07:190:07:22

Demi co-starred with huge boyband, The Jonas Brothers.

0:07:230:07:27

# Now I've found who I am

0:07:270:07:30

# There's no way to hold it in. #

0:07:300:07:34

The film was massive, getting over

0:07:340:07:36

eight and a half million viewers

0:07:360:07:39

when it premiered in the US alone.

0:07:390:07:42

15-year-old Demi Lovato became an overnight superstar.

0:07:420:07:46

# ..to feel so in the dark

0:07:460:07:49

# To dream about a life where you're the shining star

0:07:490:07:54

# Even though it seems... #

0:07:540:07:56

Demi, have five Ambo Points

0:07:560:07:57

for starring in a massive movie.

0:07:570:07:59

Demi had made it,

0:07:590:08:01

but Camp Rock was just the start,

0:08:010:08:03

bigger things were around the corner.

0:08:030:08:06

# This is real, this is me

0:08:060:08:09

# I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be now... #

0:08:090:08:13

Demi, take the weight off,

0:08:130:08:14

it's time to check out those Rixton Boys.

0:08:140:08:17

# All I need's a little love in my life,

0:08:170:08:20

# All I need's a little love in the dark

0:08:200:08:23

# A little but I'm hoping it might kick-start

0:08:230:08:26

# Me and my broken heart

0:08:260:08:28

# I need a little loving tonight...#

0:08:280:08:31

They're the boyband who've got it all.

0:08:310:08:33

Talent, tunes and legions of fans across the globe.

0:08:330:08:37

# Me and my broken heart. #

0:08:370:08:40

But before they were rocking all over the world

0:08:410:08:43

they were dreaming of stardom

0:08:430:08:46

right here in Blackpool!

0:08:460:08:48

# Baby, aimed at my heart, you got one

0:08:480:08:52

# Tear me apart and then some

0:08:520:08:54

# How do we call this love?

0:08:540:08:57

# Whoah-oh-oh... #

0:08:570:08:59

Rixton's story starts right here in Blackpool,

0:08:590:09:02

with a young Jake Roche.

0:09:020:09:04

Jake was a musical kid and he had showbiz in his blood.

0:09:040:09:09

But it'd be when he teamed up with Danny, Charley and Lewi

0:09:090:09:14

that he'd take the UK and US by storm.

0:09:140:09:17

Here's how it all went down.

0:09:170:09:19

Jake's mum is famous singer Coleen Nolan

0:09:230:09:26

and his dad is entertainment royalty Shane Ritchie.

0:09:260:09:29

Jake and his big brother both wanted

0:09:290:09:32

to follow in their parents' showbiz footsteps

0:09:320:09:35

So, in 2009, he started a band with a keyboardist called...

0:09:350:09:39

You guessed it, Danny!

0:09:390:09:40

And you are never going to believe this.

0:09:420:09:44

I'm off to the pub where they played their first ever gig together...

0:09:440:09:47

So keen!

0:09:470:09:50

# Someone like you...

0:09:500:09:52

# Whoa, whoa... #

0:09:520:09:54

I want to know all about their first gig,

0:09:540:09:57

so I'm meeting Jake's big bro and fellow singer,

0:09:570:10:00

Shane Richie Jnr.

0:10:000:10:02

This is footage from that very gig with Shane singing in the middle

0:10:020:10:06

and Jake and Danny to the right of him.

0:10:060:10:08

-Jay!

-How's it going? Yeah.

-So good.

0:10:080:10:12

This is the site of where you guys did your first ever gig.

0:10:120:10:16

Tell me everything.

0:10:160:10:17

It was amazing, to be fair.

0:10:170:10:19

It was really, really good.

0:10:190:10:21

Jake was still young, he was only 16-17.

0:10:210:10:24

It was his first big thing,

0:10:240:10:25

and every night before the gig...

0:10:250:10:27

"Shane, I don't think I can go on...

0:10:270:10:30

"Honestly, mate, you might just have to go on tonight by yourself."

0:10:300:10:33

Then, as soon as he'd step on, he's like, "Here I am!"

0:10:330:10:36

Apparently still does it now.

0:10:360:10:37

HE PRETENDS TO CLEAR THROAT "La, la, la, la la."

0:10:370:10:40

One, two, three, four...

0:10:400:10:42

-# It's all about you

-It's about you

0:10:420:10:46

# It's all about you, baby...#

0:10:460:10:48

Was he always a singer, like, growing up, around home?

0:10:480:10:51

Just always singing, it used to do my head in -

0:10:510:10:54

and he's still the same now, so annoying.

0:10:540:10:56

If he wasn't going to sing,

0:10:560:10:57

he'd have acted or been in the West End

0:10:570:10:59

or Broadway or something like that.

0:10:590:11:01

He was destined for it.

0:11:010:11:03

# Dancing on the kitchen tiles

0:11:030:11:06

# It's all about you. #

0:11:060:11:08

Now, I've got to ask you this...

0:11:080:11:10

Is it true that Jake still comes home and gets his pants washed?

0:11:100:11:13

-Yeah, he still takes them back to my mum...

-Oh, really?!

0:11:130:11:16

..and she washes his boxers, yes, she does.

0:11:160:11:18

Oh, still a mummy's boy at heart.

0:11:180:11:19

-Absolutely.

-Oh, well, thank you so much, it has been amazing.

0:11:190:11:22

Bring it in.

0:11:220:11:24

# The thing about my baby, it don't matter if you're black or white! #

0:11:240:11:29

For some big time brotherly love and rocking out to a packed crowd,

0:11:290:11:32

have three Ambo Points.

0:11:320:11:34

But, hey! I'm taking one away

0:11:340:11:36

for still getting Mum to clean your undies.

0:11:360:11:39

After a handful of gigs Jake and Danny left the band

0:11:390:11:42

to start working on their own tunes.

0:11:420:11:44

They wanted to write songs nonstop,

0:11:440:11:47

so they moved in together,

0:11:470:11:49

into this caravan.

0:11:490:11:51

# Take it, take it

0:11:510:11:52

# I'll give my heart to you for free, girl

0:11:520:11:55

# Don't you break it, break it... #

0:11:550:11:57

Not only is this is where Jake and Danny started writing together

0:11:570:12:01

but the Rixton boys came back to record a live performance.

0:12:010:12:05

I want a tour, so I've called Danny's Mum Angela

0:12:050:12:08

to find out what things were like back then.

0:12:080:12:11

-What's up?

-Hey.

0:12:110:12:13

Angela, give me some.

0:12:130:12:15

I'm a little bit excited.

0:12:150:12:17

I can't believe that this is where Danny and Jake

0:12:170:12:21

used to write out music.

0:12:210:12:22

Give me the grand tour.

0:12:220:12:24

OK. This is it!

0:12:240:12:26

It's great, it's great. I'm loving it.

0:12:260:12:28

-Don't hold back, tell me everything!

-OK.

0:12:280:12:31

This is where Danny and Jake signed it originally and Charley

0:12:310:12:34

and Lewi added on when they joined.

0:12:340:12:36

Just clear this space, I might try to take that and put it on my wall.

0:12:360:12:40

Nope, that's not going anywhere.

0:12:400:12:42

You're lucky.

0:12:420:12:44

# Say it, say it

0:12:440:12:46

# I know there's something on your mind, girl

0:12:460:12:49

# And I hate it, hate it... #

0:12:490:12:50

What was it like when the guys were living here? Was it this neat?

0:12:500:12:54

-Or was it just a load of stuff...?

-It definitely wasn't neat.

0:12:540:12:57

There'd be a keyboard,

0:12:570:12:59

all the equipment that they would use, the recording equipment,

0:12:590:13:03

clothes everywhere,

0:13:030:13:05

cups everywhere, plates everywhere.

0:13:050:13:08

So, no, it definitely wasn't neat.

0:13:080:13:09

# Wait on me I know how to love you

0:13:090:13:12

# And I want to love you some more

0:13:120:13:14

# Wait on me Come a little closer... #

0:13:140:13:17

It sounds like this place was a tip but, boys,

0:13:170:13:20

I'm giving you two Ambo Points for making the most

0:13:200:13:22

out of your little home.

0:13:220:13:24

# I wanna feel your body

0:13:240:13:25

# Wait on me I know how to love you

0:13:250:13:27

# And I wanna love you some more... #

0:13:270:13:30

To complete the band, Jake and Danny needed more members.

0:13:300:13:33

Enter Charley, a guitarist from Essex

0:13:330:13:36

and a drummer from Lancashire called Lewi.

0:13:360:13:38

And that was it. The band Relics were born!

0:13:390:13:43

What? Yep, that's right.

0:13:430:13:45

Back then, Rixton were called Relics.

0:13:450:13:47

But the story's not over yet!

0:13:470:13:50

# We've got the sweet, hot loving

0:13:500:13:52

# Dancing in the dark

0:13:520:13:54

# Out in the streets we're running

0:13:540:13:57

# Shut down every bar... #

0:13:570:13:59

Relics hit the studio and started uploading cover songs

0:13:590:14:02

to the internet, like this version of Rita Ora's Like We Do.

0:14:020:14:05

# ..Cos that's just how we do.

0:14:050:14:07

# We do... #

0:14:070:14:11

Their videos got loads of views and managed to catch the attention

0:14:110:14:15

of one Scooter Braun,

0:14:150:14:17

who's only the manager of...JUSTIN BEIBER!

0:14:170:14:20

He got in touch and arranged to meet the boys

0:14:200:14:23

at a recording studio, right here in London.

0:14:230:14:26

# Just go numb

0:14:260:14:30

# You'll never know until you let go

0:14:300:14:33

# Just go numb... #

0:14:330:14:34

Scooter liked the boys so much that he signed them right there and then.

0:14:340:14:38

Boom!

0:14:380:14:40

# I can feel you now. #

0:14:400:14:43

Have three Ambo Points for making a mega impression on a showbiz legend.

0:14:430:14:47

# Keep on doing the same old things... #

0:14:470:14:51

Unfortunately, the band name Relics was taken,

0:14:510:14:54

so the boys became Rixton.

0:14:540:14:56

They had the name, a record deal

0:14:560:14:58

and were ready to take the world by storm.

0:14:580:15:01

And that all started with this bad boy.

0:15:010:15:05

# Let's make out

0:15:050:15:07

# Ooh-ooh-ooh

0:15:070:15:09

# Let's make out

0:15:090:15:11

# Ooh-ooh-ooh

0:15:110:15:13

# Let's make out... #

0:15:130:15:14

The video for their debut track Make Out went viral in 2013

0:15:140:15:18

and peeps in the USA went wild for it.

0:15:180:15:21

Rixton had cracked America with their very first song,

0:15:210:15:24

something most artists spend their whole career trying to do.

0:15:240:15:29

Have three Ambo points

0:15:290:15:31

for making it in the US, boys.

0:15:310:15:33

# T-t-t-tell somebody. #

0:15:330:15:36

Let's have a look at the scores...

0:15:360:15:38

These guys have astronomical levels

0:15:400:15:42

of pop potential

0:15:420:15:43

but it's Demi Lovato

0:15:430:15:45

who takes an early lead.

0:15:450:15:46

We've seen how our stars made it,

0:15:480:15:49

now it's time to see how hard they've been working.

0:15:490:15:53

It's time for Round 2!

0:15:530:15:55

Round 2, Pop Success.

0:15:580:16:00

This is all about what our stars have been up to,

0:16:000:16:02

to make sure that they stay at the top of the charts.

0:16:020:16:05

First up, Demi.

0:16:050:16:07

# I'm not a supermodel

0:16:070:16:10

# I still eat McDonalds, baby

0:16:100:16:14

# That's just me. #

0:16:140:16:16

Camp Rock made Demi Lovato a massive star.

0:16:160:16:19

So, it wasn't long before she started writing

0:16:190:16:22

and releasing her own songs.

0:16:220:16:24

Demi released two albums within a year of each other.

0:16:250:16:28

The first, Don't Forget,

0:16:280:16:30

got to number two in the US album charts in 2008

0:16:300:16:33

and her second, Here We Go Again,

0:16:330:16:36

got that all important top spot.

0:16:360:16:38

# Hey, hey! #

0:16:400:16:42

Have two Ambo Points for totally bossing the charts from the get go.

0:16:420:16:48

But what about Rixton?

0:16:480:16:49

# Girl, let me love you, baby

0:16:530:16:56

# Ooh-ooh. #

0:16:560:16:57

Rixton work around the clock to promote their music

0:16:590:17:02

and they've appeared on some of the biggest TV shows in the USA.

0:17:020:17:06

And all this TV promo work

0:17:070:17:09

has helped them smash into the US top 20 billboard charts.

0:17:090:17:13

Nice work.

0:17:130:17:15

# I just wanna be the one to remind you

0:17:150:17:19

# What it is to smile... #

0:17:190:17:22

But the Rixton boys aren't just big in the US.

0:17:220:17:24

In the UK, Me and My Broken Heart went straight to number one,

0:17:240:17:29

outselling Nicole Scherzinger

0:17:290:17:31

by 12,000 copies.

0:17:310:17:33

Now, that's schamazing!

0:17:330:17:35

# All I need's a little love in my life

0:17:360:17:38

# All I need's a little love in the dark... #

0:17:380:17:40

Rixton, I'm throwing three Ambo Points your way

0:17:400:17:43

for instant world domination.

0:17:430:17:45

# Me and my broken heart. #

0:17:450:17:48

# You can take everything I have

0:17:480:17:51

# You can break everything I am

0:17:510:17:55

# Like I'm made of glass

0:17:550:18:00

# Like I'm made of paper. #

0:18:000:18:03

Demi Lovato was huge in the USA

0:18:030:18:06

but it wasn't until 2012 that she cracked the UK charts,

0:18:060:18:10

with this track, Skyscraper, that rocketed into the top 10.

0:18:100:18:15

# Like a skyscraper

0:18:150:18:18

# Like a skyscraper. #

0:18:180:18:22

And, in 2013, the super awesome track Heart Attack went even higher,

0:18:220:18:27

crashing into the UK top 5.

0:18:270:18:29

# If I ever did that

0:18:290:18:32

# I think I'd have a heart attack

0:18:320:18:36

# I think I'd have a heart attack. #

0:18:360:18:39

Demi, I'm giving you two Ambo points for two killer tunes.

0:18:390:18:43

Not only that, Demi also sang the single version

0:18:430:18:46

of a small song you might have heard of from Frozen!

0:18:460:18:50

Let it go, let it go...

0:18:500:18:53

# Turn my back and slam the door

0:18:530:18:57

# And here I stand, and here I'll stay... #

0:18:570:18:59

Demi, you can have three Ambo Points

0:18:590:19:02

because everybody loves Frozen.

0:19:020:19:04

Let it go, let it go!

0:19:040:19:07

The cold never bothered me anyway.

0:19:070:19:10

OK, so I may not have the best voice,

0:19:100:19:13

but there has to be someone to thank for Demi's rock awesomeness

0:19:130:19:16

and that would be vocal coach and tour buddy Linda Septien.

0:19:160:19:20

Whoop!

0:19:210:19:23

Linda Septien is a showbiz icon.

0:19:230:19:26

She's worked with Beyonce, Selena Gomez

0:19:260:19:29

and has coached Demi since she was nine years old.

0:19:290:19:33

I want to know all about how hard-working Demi is.

0:19:330:19:37

-Hello!

-Hello.

0:19:370:19:40

You're living mine and everyone's dream by getting to tour with Demi.

0:19:400:19:44

What's it like?

0:19:440:19:45

She is probably one of the hardest workers

0:19:450:19:48

of any female singer I've ever worked with.

0:19:480:19:51

So, what do you do, and what do you tell her,

0:19:510:19:53

to keep that voice really powerful and strong?

0:19:530:19:56

Well, I can tell you a story that she may not mind.

0:19:560:19:59

We were, I think, here in Dallas

0:19:590:20:01

and she said, "I'm so hoarse right now I'm really struggling."

0:20:010:20:05

She says, "I've got a two hour show."

0:20:050:20:07

and I said, "OK, there's a trick

0:20:070:20:08

"that you can do with cayenne pepper and lemon and a little bit of honey.

0:20:080:20:13

"Let's see if it works."

0:20:130:20:14

And, so, she eats this whole little thing and goes,

0:20:140:20:18

"Oh, that's awful,"

0:20:180:20:19

and then about 30 minutes later, she's going,

0:20:190:20:22

"Wow! I can talk. I can do anything."

0:20:220:20:24

"This is amazing. Let me have another one."

0:20:240:20:27

And I said, "Demi, I don't think you want two of those things."

0:20:270:20:31

So, she put another one in her mouth, and was fine. She was great.

0:20:310:20:35

After the show, she comes backstage

0:20:350:20:37

and she whispers in my ear,

0:20:370:20:39

"I threw up cayenne pepper the entire time."

0:20:390:20:42

I said, "What did you do with it? While you were onstage?"

0:20:420:20:45

And she said, "Yeah, I just swallowed it and it was awful."

0:20:450:20:49

So, we do all kind of tricks.

0:20:500:20:52

# Don't wanna break your heart

0:20:520:20:54

# Wanna give your heart a break

0:20:540:20:55

# I know you're scared it's wrong... #

0:20:550:20:58

What a legend!

0:20:580:20:59

Demi, you can have two Ambo Points

0:20:590:21:01

for keeping the show going despite being sick all the way through.

0:21:010:21:05

# So, let me give your heart a break... #

0:21:050:21:07

It's not just Demi's fans who love to see her perform live,

0:21:070:21:11

Rixton's legions of followers are seriously dedicated too.

0:21:110:21:15

# Wait on me

0:21:150:21:16

# I know how to love you and I wanna love you some more

0:21:160:21:20

# Wait on me... #

0:21:200:21:21

Get this.

0:21:210:21:23

In July 2014, tickets for their US headline tour went on sale

0:21:230:21:27

and sold out in a staggering ten minutes!

0:21:270:21:29

# Wait on me

0:21:300:21:32

# I know how to love you and I wanna love you some more... #

0:21:320:21:35

For being a mega in demand band,

0:21:350:21:37

have three Ambo Points, boys.

0:21:370:21:39

# Take it, take it... #

0:21:390:21:42

And that's the end of round two.

0:21:420:21:43

Let's see those scores.

0:21:430:21:45

Both these guys have had big-time success

0:21:450:21:48

but Demi has increased her lead by four points.

0:21:480:21:52

If you don't agree, you know what to do.

0:21:520:21:54

Go to the CBBC website and have your say.

0:21:540:21:58

We've found out how our pop royalty made it big,

0:21:580:22:01

and how successful they've been.

0:22:010:22:03

It's now time to see how glam they've become in round three.

0:22:030:22:06

Round three. Pop style.

0:22:100:22:12

This is all about our celebrity's lives.

0:22:120:22:14

Clothes, cars, pets or whatever else

0:22:140:22:16

they splash their cash on.

0:22:160:22:19

First up, Miss Lovato.

0:22:190:22:22

# Our love runs deep like a Chevy

0:22:220:22:24

# If you fall I'll fall with you, baby... #

0:22:240:22:27

Demi is one trendy lady

0:22:270:22:29

and no-one rocks the rock goddess look quite like her.

0:22:290:22:33

With fame and fortune comes fabulous fashion and hot hair

0:22:330:22:37

and Demi certainly doesn't disappoint in that arena!

0:22:370:22:40

She changed her hair more times than I've even brushed mine.

0:22:400:22:43

No, seriously.

0:22:430:22:45

# No matter how far we go... #

0:22:450:22:48

She's rocked blonde, brunette,

0:22:480:22:50

black, pink, blue, red,

0:22:500:22:53

curly, straight and even shaved.

0:22:530:22:56

# No matter what the people say... #

0:22:560:22:58

Demi, have three Ambo Points

0:22:580:23:00

for mixing up your dos

0:23:000:23:02

and looking 100% every time.

0:23:020:23:04

Sometimes fabulous hair always work out how you'd like it to.

0:23:040:23:07

This one time, Demi was doing a gig at Kansas City

0:23:070:23:10

on a particularly warm night.

0:23:100:23:12

It was so hot that her hair extension melted off her head.

0:23:120:23:16

Not only did she not realise,

0:23:160:23:18

but, during a dance move, it got stuck in her bracelet.

0:23:180:23:21

Now, I wasn't there at the time but I imagine it went

0:23:210:23:23

a little something like this.

0:23:230:23:25

"Hello, everyone, my name is Demi Lovato.

0:23:270:23:30

"OK, it's a little bit hot in here but we are doing this.

0:23:300:23:33

"Yeah, let's go. Make some noise.

0:23:330:23:36

"Whoop, whoop, whoop."

0:23:360:23:38

# Even if the stars and moon collide

0:23:380:23:41

# Never watch your back... #

0:23:410:23:43

"Ooh, ah.

0:23:430:23:44

"Sorry, guys, my hair is just stuck in my bracelet.

0:23:440:23:47

"You keep rocking, I'll be right back.

0:23:470:23:49

"OK, Demi, you're going to have to pull it out. No pain, no gain."

0:23:490:23:52

"Oh, no, but I don't want to. Don't make me do it."

0:23:520:23:54

"Come on, Demi. No pain, no gain."

0:23:540:23:55

"OK, on three. One, two, three."

0:23:550:23:57

SHE SCREAMS

0:23:570:24:01

"I'm back.

0:24:010:24:03

# Even if the stars and moon collide... #

0:24:030:24:06

That's right, Demi and her hair were A-OK.

0:24:060:24:09

She went off stage, removed it from her bracelet

0:24:090:24:11

and then kept on rocking.

0:24:110:24:13

What a pro.

0:24:130:24:15

# But even if the stars and moon collide... #

0:24:150:24:19

Have three Ambo Points for not letting your hairstyle

0:24:190:24:22

get in the way of the show.

0:24:220:24:24

Hey, Demi isn't the only one who knows how to bring

0:24:240:24:27

some glitzy style to the party.

0:24:270:24:29

# Wait on me

0:24:290:24:31

# I know how to love you

0:24:310:24:32

# And I wanna love you some more. #

0:24:320:24:34

Those Rixton boys scrub up pretty well too.

0:24:340:24:37

The boys look great together but also have their own things going on.

0:24:410:24:45

# Wait on me... #

0:24:450:24:47

Jake loves a pair of sunglasses,

0:24:470:24:50

Danny keeps it cas',

0:24:500:24:52

Charley likes the shirt and blazer look

0:24:520:24:55

and as for drummer Lewi,

0:24:550:24:57

it's all about the backwards cap

0:24:570:24:59

and that mysterious backpack.

0:24:590:25:02

Nobody knows what he keeps in that backpack...

0:25:020:25:04

Until now!

0:25:040:25:06

I've have managed to exclusively get a hold of his backpack.

0:25:060:25:09

OK, guys we're doing this, let's go inside.

0:25:090:25:11

He's got a flip-flop, yep. Check.

0:25:110:25:13

Oh, teddy bear, that's nice. What else have we got?

0:25:130:25:15

Oh, he's got a beetroot?

0:25:150:25:17

OK, fine, you got me. It's not his. It's mine.

0:25:170:25:20

I guess what he keeps in the bag will remain a mystery.

0:25:200:25:23

So good.

0:25:230:25:24

# Wait on me

0:25:240:25:26

# I know how to love you

0:25:260:25:27

# And I wanna love you some more

0:25:270:25:29

Lads, have an Ambo Point each

0:25:290:25:30

for your awesome, individual style.

0:25:300:25:32

And Lewi you get a bonus Ambo Point

0:25:320:25:35

for your curious backpack.

0:25:350:25:36

# No matter what the people say

0:25:370:25:40

# I know that we'll never break

0:25:400:25:43

# Cos our love was made

# Made in the UK

0:25:460:25:48

FANS SCREAM

0:25:480:25:49

Demi Lovato may be a super stylish, mega famous pop star,

0:25:490:25:53

but it doesn't mean she's forgotten her roots.

0:25:530:25:56

Demi loves her family so much that, for her 18th birthday

0:25:560:26:00

she bought them a big house all to live in. Not only that,

0:26:000:26:03

but she let them live in the main house

0:26:030:26:05

whilst she bunked at the small building out the back.

0:26:050:26:08
