Previously on Glee Club, 15 acts battled it out across the heats. Our
expert judges selected the top five. That was a perfect performance. You
deserved to be here - that was awesome. I was not blown away! I was
smashed away! Today, they will perform once again. Only three acts
can make it to the next stage. It is down to you to decide who you want
to see in the final. Coming live, from Glasgow, this is Sport Relief
does Glee Club, 2014. So, yes, live from Glasgow, it is
time for the semi-final of Sport Relief does Glee Club. Who better
than to guide us through the choppy waters of two people who are the
human equivalent of bangers and mash. Welcome your hosts, Sam and
Hi, love that. Thank you for the intro Mr D. Who is bangers and who
is miss? The banger and the gourmet one - but I am simple mash. No more
of that, or we will take the vouchers off you. Not the vouchers.
They are the only reason I am here. We have to introduce a woman who is
smart, funny and gorgeous. Not you, Mark - I am talking about the
fabulous Naomi Wilkinson. Whofrgets is your mate? This is
actually the Sport Relief does Glee Club trophy! It is impressive, isn't
it? I was not very complimentary about the trophy in previous shows.
I tell you what, it is a beauty. What it lacks for in style, it makes
up with stature. You won't get that in your hand luggage. Take it
backstage. The lovely Naomi Wilkinson,en everybody. Work on the
biceps! Now, let's get down to business. You
will decide the fate of our act. The top five made it this far by
impressing the judges. The stakes are high. Earlier today, our acts
recorded their performances for you. The group with the most vote will go
to the final, where one will become the winners of Sport Relief does
Glee Club. One Direction have their numbers on
speed dial - let's meet our judges. They are the top coaches in the
industry and have worked with Madonna and Take That - it is the
judges. Carrie and David areful vocal -- are vocal coaches to the
stars. It was absolutely fantastic!
John has worked behind the scenes on top shows like The X Factor and the
Voice. With JLS and Leona #1k5 Lewis.
Sisco has worked with Alexandra Burke and Kylie, to name but two.
I love the way you guys performed. It was a pleasure to watch. Well
done. It is the judges! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
And here they are in the flesh. Carrie, David, John and Sisco!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Looking good, guys. Carrie, are you
ready? This is the bit of the series where it all starts to happen. Do
you think the people at home will have a tough decision today? Yes,
they are. I am glad we don't have to do that now. It is up to you now.
You sit there and look good. It is our judges. As Sisco just said, it
is your votes that count. However, we are asking our judges to vote in
the event of the results being tied. First a group from Brighton, who are
currently fifth in the leaderboard. Carrie said she loved their style
and performance. Let's go to Naomi and Abstract.
You guys have made it to the semi-final. Can you believe it? I
can not believe we have made it here. It has been crazy and happened
so quickly. You didn't win your studio heat. Was it a surprise to
get to the semi-final? We didn't think we would get through it. It is
amazing. Are you excited to perform. We are about to see you. Before they
perform though, let's see Abstract's journey through to the semi-finals.
We are Abstract! # Walk out the door
# They hoped their unique style would im impress and it did. If that
was your style, you interest me. You fascinate me. Would they be able to
mirror their previous performance? Your verse was brilliant! I loved
the way you play the harmonies and changed the melody. You have changed
it and make it yours. The girls wanted to hang in on there with
their Survival song. If you get through you stro give
more of that Sister Sledge. There are pretenders and contenders
and you are definitely contenders. Abstract's overall score earned them
fifth place on the leaderboard and a spot here in the semi-final.
# And there ain't nothing I can do about it
# They are first up and hoping to be
the belles of Brighton. Sing Singing first it is Abstract.
# Remember those walls I built # Well, baby they're tumbling down
And they didn't even put up a fight # They didn't efb make a sound
# I foinld a way to let you in # But I never really had a doubt
# Standing in the light of your hall low
# I got my angel now # It's like I ae been a-- it's like
I've been awakened # Every rule I had you breaking
# It's the risk that I'm taking # I p apartment never go that shut
you out # Everywhere I look now
# I'm surrounded by your embrace # Baby, I can see your halo
# You know you're my saving grace # You're everything
# I need more # It's written all over your face
# Baby, I can feel your halo #
Bell done, girls. What a way to -- well done, girls. What a way to
start the show. What did you think of Abstract's performance? It is
hard. This is where the nerves kick in when we get to semi-final stage.
I felt you did the song justice in the sense you made it your own. I
loved the vocals. The soloists were nervous. You need to use that
support in your voice to get those notes kicked out. John, what do you
like about Abstract? My colleagues are very hard to please today. The
reality is this is the semi-final. As a show opener, you guys have
really set the mark. You have set the mark. That was excellent. Very
well done. What is your name young lady in the back? Charlotte.
Incredible control on the lower note. Wow! Good job. Sisco, as the
choreographer on the panel, were you impressed? You guys can move. I are
agree with Carrie for once. It was a little too distracting. The song is
so beautiful and Beyonce - what a force, even to tackle. When she's a
head voice it is stronger. Wh when she's ad-libbing going for gold,
bronze and silver. It was pitchy and not as secure and as solid as I need
it at this stage. It sounded, especially that last soloist -
sounded like a whisper. A cute whisper. Got too lost. If you get
through I need you to let your hair down, whip it back and forth and
say, I am here to win. I am still not seeing that. It is to your votes
at home. That is what counts today. If they are your favourite all-round
entertainment - you need to vote for them, but only when the phone lines
open and all five have performed. Do not vote now. Your vote will not be
counted and you will still be charged.
The next to perform are one of two groups in Port Talbot in Wales.
Let's meet M T13. How happy are you guys to be back?
You can tell she's excited, can't you? What are your strengths? How
will you use them? Because we are all best friends and get on, we lift
up the spirit in our performance. What has been the best part of being
on Glee Club so far? Coming here and being part of the performance. Let's
take at look at MT13's story. They really gave it their all.
Soloists were fabulous. I love that you are all individuals and you
bring your own thing to the piece. You have got swagger! I love that!
They were determined not to go home. # I don't want to lose you now
# Loved the attitude. Love the look.
The attitude - you have got it spot on. MT13 had one more chance to keep
on impressing the judges. # Show me that I love you
# Back in your heart #
Just for that performance alone, you deserve to be here. That was
awesome. You guys need to be in the final. Impress the judges they did.
With those incredible comments MT13 won their heat and their place in
today's semi-final. They are the Welsh girl group with
bags of attitude. Singing for you and Sports Relief, it is MT13.
# We're a thousand miles from comfort
# We have travelled land and sea # But as long as you are with me
# There's no place I'd rather be # With every step we take
# Kyoto to the bay # Strolling so casually
# We're different and the same # Gave you another name
# Switch up the batteries # If you gave me a chance I would
take it # It's a shot in the dark
# But I'll make it # Know with all of your heart
# You can't shame me # When I am with you
# There's no place, I'd rather be # No, no, no
# No place I'd rather be # No, no no,
# No place I'd rather be # Yeah, yeah
# No, no, no # No place I'd rather be
# No, no, no # No place I'd rather be
# No, no, no # No place I'd rather be
# When I am with you There's no place I'd rather be.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Nice one, girls.
Listen, I love what you are about, I love the way you dance, I love the
energy. You tend to pick the key, so it's out of chewing with the backing
track. I have to say, I'm disappointed because your star
player, why didn't she have a solo, I don't know? You about all these
amazing comments, why not play to your strengths in the semifinal? I
do love what you are about and I love the way you perform. I have to
agree with carry on that, you remain the most adorable, cutest act on the
show, you energy level is ten out of ten, your performance is ten out of
ten. It is the vocals, unfortunately, that let you down a
bit, but it's not up to us today, let's see what the public say. Are
you glad that MT13 made it to the semifinals? I am, and I can't
believe you're being so harsh to them, they are wonderful! I mean,
look you guys! Cute! Carrie, I get it, that harmony, that was a bit...
But you guys were living the dream. Pick a lower key, something more
comfortable. Play to your strengths, first soloist, lift your
tone. And Keegan, you have got to sing, girl! You guys are dangerous!
You have swapped roles! Thank you, judges, but it's not up to them,
it's up to you. If MT13 are your favourite all-round entertainment
performance, you want to see them in the final, boat for them. Do not
phone now as you may still be charged and your boat when it began
to. -- your vote may not be counted. The next act to perform are
currently fourth on the leaderboard, they came second in
their studio heat but they still made it through to the semifinals.
Let's see how Naomi is getting on backstage. How have you been since
we saw you last? Just been rehearsing and hanging out together
as a group. Have you been practising hard? Yes! This one is a bit
different, so just to show our versatility. Good luck with your
performance. Let's see how # Boom made it to be semifinals! # Boom
exploded onto the stage with their performance receiving great comments
from the judges. You guys are sensational! It's like you ruled the
law. If you get through, you have to do so much work between now and then
to tighten everything up. They made it through to the studio heat but
have they worked hard enough? It wasn't the complete performance
that I am sure you can deliver. And I am looking for that in the next
round. After David's advice to give it some more, they were determined
to come back and get noticed. That is a huge sum, I don't know many
people your age you could deliver it the way you did, so that was
excellent -- huge song. They didn't win the heat but they received a
great score from the judges, securing fourth place on the
leaderboard. Hoping their urban viable get them
through to the final, singing and dusting for you and Sport Relief, it
is # Boom! # When I look into your eyes, it's
like watching the night sky. Because even the stars they burn.
# Some even fall to the Earth. Visit macro we have got a lot to learn.
Visit macro God knows where worth it.
# I don't want to be someone who walks away so easily, I'm here to
stay and make a difference that I can make.
# We had to learn how to bend without a world caving in. Visit
macro I had to learn what I've got and what I'm not, and who I am.
# I won't give up on us. # I know I'm enough.
# We have got a lot to learn. # God knows we're worth it.
You look like you enjoyed that! Let's see what the judges thought of
that. Cisco, what makes them special? Where did that come from!
That was so much better, and I'm only going to be honest because I
love you guys. It was pitch perfect! Until the last soloist, you were so
nervous. But other than that, it was perfection. David, didn't have
enough urban flavour? It is like urban but with a tuxedo on, I didn't
expect that, that was so sophisticated, so classy! You have
taken a massive step up and you are contenders. Remember, the power is
now in your hands, it is up to you to decide who goes through to the
final. If you want to see # Boom in the final, you need to vote for
them. The next group to grace the stage
are currently second on the leaderboard. Cisco said their
routine was the most polished in rehearsal. Let's join Naomi and see
what A-List have in store. I am here with the polished performers A-List,
what can we expect today? Tonnes of energy and excitement, we want the
energy up and dancing with us. What kind of support of your family and
friends been giving you? They are always there for us, whenever we
need them, they are such a huge support, they are out there today.
Just before you perform, let's remind ourselves of how A-List made
it to the semifinal. A-List wanted their performance to be right on the
money. I love the choreography that you had. You just needed a bit more
punch. The me it lacks energy but vocally, beautiful. Their
performance was good enough to make it to the studio heat and eight
received a positive reaction to their round one song. I felt like I
just watched a stage show. A well oiled machine. And that their round
to performance, they reached out to be judges. -- their round two
performance. I remember you in the first auditions, can't believe this
is the same group! If you get through, you will need to step up
again. They secured second spot and a place in today's semifinal.
Singing and dancing for you, it is A-List.
Ms macro we are going to rock this club, go all
# Ongoing to take it all, I'm going to be the last one standing.
# Higher overall, I'm going to be the last one standing.
# I, I want it all. I just want it all.
# Put your hands in the air. # Put your hands in the air.
# I throw my hands up in the air sometimes, God to let go.
# I want to celebrate and live my life. Maybe let's go.
# We going to rock this club, we going to go all night, we're going
to light it up like it's dynamite. # I told you once, I told you twice,
light it up like it's dynamite. # Rockers club, going to go all
night, going to light it up like it's dynamite.
# I told you once, told you twice, light it up like it's dynamite.
Well done, dies! You have got the audience clapping! Let's go over to
our judges. What do you like about A-List? I feel secure, I feel that I
know you guys are going to deliver a really in tune, beautiful vocal
performance. And that is exactly what you did. It did feel in places
like a soft tennis ball rather than dynamite, it doesn't have that
punch. If you could have had the punch, you would have had the whole
performance, but vocally, very beautiful. John, your thoughts? I
think David said you are a well built machine, it's very true. You
are a very well oiled machine. In fact, you vocal blend is dynamite.
It's like listening to a record! So, smooth. Just start believing in
yourself and get out there, be in peoples faces, are that good! David,
was that a complete performance? The movement, great, the vocals, great,
you guys can sing and dance at the same time as being in June but I had
to agree, all that was lacking was the energy that comes from complete
commitment and confidence. It is up to you at home now. Who do you want
to go through? If A-List your favourite performance, and you want
them in the final, you need to vote for them.
OK, it's now time for the fifth and final act, who are currently top of
the leaderboard with an amazing 194 points. So no pressure, then! Let's
go backstage to Naomi and Musicality. Here they are, third
time on the programme, and in the semifinals. I am hoping it is third
time lucky, it is a massive big deal for us that we have made it this
far. Are you feeling comfy, having been here before? You could say
that, but it's a whole new experience, being in the semifinals,
it's down to the public now. What did your friends and family say?
They are also proud of us, especially as it's such a great
cause. Let's remind ourselves how they made it to this point. We are
Musicality! They brought a bit of sunshine to be judges audition.
Fantastic choreography. Lovely vocal. With a ticket to the studio
heat, they were raring to do it all over again. I don't know what it is
about the Welsh, music just comes out of you! With their round one
song in the bag, they brought it right down. It was absolutely
fantastic. I am going to disagree, I wasn't blown away. I was smashed
away! So they showed to the -- shot to the top of the leaderboard.
Hoping to finish with a strong performance, singing and dancing for
you and for Sport Relief, its Musicality!
# Excuse me for a while, I am wide-eyed and caught in the middle.
# I've excused you for a while # While I'm wide-eyed
# And I'm so down caught in the middle
# A lion roars # #w0u8d you not listen?
# If a child cries # Would you not listen
# Yeah and man seems so strong # Yeah, man speaks so long
# Man never been so wrong # Yeah, I might seem so strong
# Might speak so long # I've never been so wrong
# Excuse me for a while # While I'm wide-eyed
# And I'm so down caught in the middle
Well down. That was great Musicality. Carrie, was that the
standard you were expecting? This was one of my favourite tracks of
the last few months T pressure pressure is on you. You have to
bring great performances to retain anything like those scores.
Brilliant vocals. Lovely inner life. No weak point on any part of the
stage. Everywhere I look it is like you have lived 60 years!
David Duke of Yorks you think Musicality are the ones -- David, do
you think Musicality are the ones to beat? Even at the beginning you were
breathing in time. You were locked, slowed down on top. This is
rehearsed, rehearsed and then you delivered. Sisco, what did you
think? It is so polished. You even breathe at the same time. Harmonies
were so clear. I could see them. How can you see sound? That is how good
you were! I hope that the public understand you guys, because it was
such a haunting performance. I hope I do don't just go for the i bit
that beats -- like the Ibiza Beats, like the other ones.
Deciding who goes to the final is up to you guys at home. If you want to
see them in the final, you need to vote for them, but only when the
phone lines open. Do not vote now. You your vote will not be counted
and you may still be charged. Give it up for Musicality!
This is the ex-siting bit. All five acts have performed. Who better to
open the phone lines - he has lunched with Brad Pitt and Beyonce
calls him for advice. Yes, I do wish Beyonce would stop calling me!
The phone lines are now open! Phone lines will stay open for
approximately 15 minutes. Of phones are free from a BT and lines. And
most land lines. Some networks and mobile operators will charge for
these calls. Remember remember to ask the bill payer's permission.
Here is a reminder of the performances and the all-important
numbers you need to call. # You're everything and more
# It's written all over your face # Baby I can see your halo
# If you gave me a chance I'd take it
# It's a shot in the dark, but I'll make it
# We're going to rock this club # We're going to go all night
# We're going to light it up, like it 's dynamite
# We're going to wind it up like it's dynamite.
# Never been so wrong Excuse me for a while
# While I'm wide-eyed and so caught in the middle
So, those were today's acts and the number you need to call is:
Good luck to everyone! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Yes. Good luck. While you decide who to vote for, let's hear from the
judges and their thoughts on today's performances. David, how much credit
would you give our acts for today's performances? Loads. 32 young
voices. Semi-finals are full of nerves. Nobody wants to go out in a
semi-final. The groups who performed the best were those who coped best
with the nerves. John, what surprised you the most today? Was
the unbelievable support and energy and sheer magic of this live studio
audience. Listen to this... CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
They are good! That is why we paid you on the big bucks!
Sisco, were you impressed? I was. I am especially with two, but I will
not say who. There were two in particular that I was like, yes,
you've listened and come out like weapons. That's what I want to see -
weapons of Glee destruction! Like these weapons here! He works
it! I think I just heard a rip in my
suit! Carrie, how would you sum up the
semi-final? When children enter it is a distant dream. The next round,
I just want to stay in. This is the stage they get to when they think,
we could win. That means the atmosphere in here changes. Their
performances are different. Some raise their game. Some lost a
little. Overall it has been an amazing show. What do you think they
have to do to raise the game for the final? They have to think, I want to
win. That have to imagine that is ahead of them. Practise day and
night. They have 24 hours of practicing. Wow! It is a tough
decision for you guys at home. It is a nervous wait for some friends and
family of the acts who are with us in the studio today. Naomi has
tracked down some supporters in the audience. Who have you got with you?
Family and friends of all of the Glee Clubs. Give us a cheer. Can you
tell who this lot are supporting? Who are you supporting? MT13. I
think they'll be landed with Sisco's comments. If you are a parent of
someone from Glee Club give us a cheer and a wave. Lots of support.
Who are you supporting? #Boom. Have cheer and a wave. Lots of support.
Who are you supporting? #Boom. how have you found it? Emotional. Whose
parent are you? Lily's. I can see how proud you are. They
did brilliantly today. Hello. Who are you supported? A-List. Who are
you? Sandy Bailey. Are you a parent? Yes, Rebecca. How are your nerves
coping? Ba-ba! Honestly - not bad. How many times have you heard her
rehearse that song at home? 24 hours a day!
I saw you mouthing your -- the words yourself. How have you enjoyed the
journ sni? So proud. They have been so true to their identity. Thank you
- come on Sussex. Come on Brighton! Get behind them. Hello, you are
supporting of? Musicality. It is their first time in the semi-final.
How do you think they did? Got a bit emotional. I usually don't. I've got
a giant banner as well. We are proud. Crossed fingers we can go all
the way this time. There is an overwhelming sense of pride up here.
You have eight minutes left to vote for your favourite Glee Club. Here
is a reminder of the numbers you need to call:
# It's written all over your face # Baby I can feel your
# If you gave me a chance I'd take it
# It's a shot in the dark # But I'll make it
# Know with all of your heart # I'm not giving up
# I'm done # We're going to rock this club
# We're going to go all night # Going to light it up
# Like it's dynamite # Man seems so strong
# Never been so # Excuse me for a while
# While of I'm wide-eyed and so down caught in the middle
