# In the beginning there was silence

0:00:020:00:05

# No-one spoke for endless hours

0:00:050:00:09

# But then one day back in history

0:00:090:00:12

# Someone invented power showers

0:00:120:00:16

# Suddenly the world was singing

0:00:160:00:21

# And a new idea grew

0:00:210:00:25

# Could it be the noise I'm making here

0:00:250:00:28

# Deserves a bigger audience than my flannel and shampoo?

0:00:280:00:36

# Could I just be a singer? How would I possibly know?

0:00:360:00:43

# Do I have the drive and talent for success?

0:00:430:00:46

# Do I have access to a television talent show?

0:00:460:00:50

# If you give me a song Could I sing it?

0:00:500:00:54

# If you give me a bell Then could I ring it?

0:00:540:00:58

# Are there diamonds here they could mine?

0:00:580:01:01

# If I catch the light will I shine?

0:01:010:01:05

# You could be that person who gets chosen

0:01:070:01:10

# Told their hair is not quite right

0:01:100:01:14

# Then get put into a boy band

0:01:140:01:17

# With some guys you met that night

0:01:170:01:21

# And if you're spotted in a nightclub

0:01:210:01:24

# At half past three, a total mess

0:01:240:01:27

# The day a former next-door neighbour

0:01:270:01:30

# Sells their story to the press

0:01:300:01:34

# Then, yes, you could be a singer

0:01:340:01:37

# Yes, you could have what it takes to make the leap

0:01:370:01:41

# You have to make to go

0:01:410:01:44

# From the curtains of a shower to a new stage show

0:01:440:01:47

# So if there's a song could I sing it?

0:01:470:01:51

# If I could get the words

0:01:510:01:52

# Could I just, like, you know just wing it?

0:01:520:01:54

# Are there diamonds here they could mine?

0:01:540:01:58

# If I catch the light will I shine?

0:01:580:02:02

# Now we all have to face it Some people get sniffy about

0:02:030:02:06

# Having programmes like these But look back in history

0:02:060:02:08

# These things are practically old as the birds and bees

0:02:080:02:11

# I mean, those gladiators who fought to the death

0:02:110:02:13

# In the glory of Rome's golden ages

0:02:130:02:15

# What is that if it's not a contestant show?

0:02:150:02:18

# Just with a rather brutal set of knockout stages

0:02:180:02:21

# When Shakespeare was writing his plays at The Globe

0:02:210:02:23

# Promotion was never a sin

0:02:230:02:25

# OK, he had drama and poetic skill

0:02:250:02:27

# To pack a big audience in

0:02:270:02:29

# But if the Bard had thought hard about his upcoming show

0:02:290:02:33

# He'd have chosen his actors with eight weeks of contest

0:02:330:02:36

# Called Wherefore Art Thou, Romeo?

0:02:360:02:40

# No matter how you end you start with nothing

0:02:410:02:46

# Every sprinter needs a block

0:02:460:02:48

# New faces who are searching for a star always needed

0:02:480:02:53

-# Opportunity to knock

-Opportunity knocks

0:02:530:02:56

# And if you hang in there a long time

0:02:560:02:59

# Just keep the smile Don't bear the grudge

0:02:590:03:03

# You may just cross the floor and make the greatest leap of all

0:03:030:03:08

# From performer to a competition judge!

0:03:080:03:15

# Oh, maybe you are that singer

0:03:150:03:19

# With the disc success under your belt

0:03:190:03:22

# You could be the person born to play this part

0:03:220:03:26

# Hey, and if it doesn't work out

0:03:260:03:28

# Then don't worry because they'll find somebody else

0:03:280:03:33

# So, yes, you could be a singer

0:03:330:03:37

# If you put your talent on the line

0:03:370:03:40

# And we have to wind this up or else we'll overrun!

0:03:400:03:42

# Or else we'll end up crashing into Casualty!

0:03:420:03:46

# Unless you step where the light can find you

0:03:460:03:51

# You never know whether you can shine...! #

0:03:510:03:58

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:030:04:06

Can we please start every show like that?

0:04:350:04:37

I tell you, Barlow really knows how to open with a big number.

0:04:370:04:40

Anyone would think he was trying to bring the worlds of talent shows,

0:04:400:04:43

boy bands and musical theatre together in one glorious

0:04:430:04:45

-entertainment spectacular.

-Well, funny you should say that.

0:04:450:04:49

-Welcome to Let It Shine.

-Yes!

0:04:490:04:52

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:520:04:54

We're on the hunt for five guys to play the role of a boy band

0:04:540:04:59

in a brand-new nationwide stage show based on the music of Take That.

0:04:590:05:03

# All I do each night is pray! #

0:05:030:05:06

The prize is a real job in a real musical.

0:05:060:05:09

So, ultimately, the winning five will need to sing...

0:05:090:05:12

-# Ahh!

-Ahh...

-Ahh... #

0:05:120:05:14

..dance...

0:05:140:05:17

-Oh, my goodness!

-..and generally ooze the charisma of a band.

0:05:170:05:21

-You look great by the way.

-So do you.

0:05:210:05:25

-Excellent use of the word ooze, Graham.

-I thank you.

0:05:250:05:28

Now, they won't be playing Take That, so we're not searching

0:05:280:05:31

-for Take That lookalikes.

-No.

0:05:310:05:33

-Our winning five will play a brand-spanking new group.

-Amazing!

0:05:330:05:37

Thousands applied and we've invited a selection of performers

0:05:370:05:41

to showcase their skills in whatever way they can to knock our

0:05:410:05:45

-judges' socks off.

-You worked that song!

0:05:450:05:49

Over the next eight weeks,

0:05:490:05:50

we'll see a shed-load of boy band hopefuls battle it out to be

0:05:500:05:53

in the winning five-some.

0:05:530:05:55

He shone all the way through his performance.

0:05:550:05:58

But for whoever those lucky five are, it all starts with an audition.

0:05:580:06:03

'We're in Manchester, the spiritual home of Take That and our

0:06:050:06:08

'baying audience are ready to be entertained.'

0:06:080:06:11

Do you want to meet the judges?

0:06:110:06:13

First up, he was pure GOLD in legendary band Spandau Ballet

0:06:160:06:20

before becoming an Albert Square icon who's gone on to tread the

0:06:200:06:24

boards in musical theatre.

0:06:240:06:25

Lock up your sisters, lock up your aunties and frankly, lock up me.

0:06:250:06:31

It's Martin Kemp!

0:06:310:06:32

# ..Always believing Gold... #

0:06:320:06:37

A band is made up of five small cogs,

0:06:370:06:40

but when they come together, they are one amazing machine and that

0:06:400:06:44

is absolutely what we're looking for.

0:06:440:06:46

Next, bringing some glee to the auditions, it's international

0:06:460:06:50

TV star and current West End leading lady, our dream girl...

0:06:500:06:54

It's Amber Riley!

0:06:540:06:56

# ..One night only That's all you have to spare... #

0:06:560:07:01

It's not always about a big voice.

0:07:010:07:03

It's also about being able to shine, it's about having charisma,

0:07:030:07:08

personality. Those are the things that are going to make the show pop.

0:07:080:07:12

Next, a princess of pop who's seen her name in lights on the West End,

0:07:120:07:17

broken box office records in a musical stage show

0:07:170:07:20

and starred on the small screen.

0:07:200:07:23

Please welcome Dannii Minogue!

0:07:230:07:26

Each boy has got to be able to sing and dance,

0:07:310:07:34

and they've got to blend together and there's nowhere to hide.

0:07:340:07:38

Sitting in that theatre seat,

0:07:380:07:41

you've got to believe this is a proper boy band.

0:07:410:07:44

Finally, the man whose music has been part of the national psyche

0:07:440:07:48

for over 25 years. He's a singer, he's a songwriter

0:07:480:07:51

and he certainly knows how to put on a show.

0:07:510:07:54

Manchester, get your kindling ready because he's going to relight

0:07:540:07:58

your fire. It's Gary Barlow.

0:07:580:08:01

# Relight my fire

0:08:010:08:04

# Your love is my only desire... #

0:08:040:08:07

SCREAMS

0:08:070:08:08

I have a split personality at the moment.

0:08:080:08:10

One side of me is extremely excited

0:08:100:08:13

and the other side of me is full of fear.

0:08:130:08:16

Will we actually find these people?

0:08:160:08:18

I'm hoping in 30 years' time,

0:08:200:08:22

I'm looking back at these amazing careers

0:08:220:08:25

that we saw start right here.

0:08:250:08:28

Between our judges and the performers lies the Let It Shine star way.

0:08:290:08:33

Our hopefuls stand on star 15.

0:08:350:08:38

After they've performed, each judge rates them out of five

0:08:380:08:41

without knowing what the other judges have scored and then...

0:08:410:08:45

..the stars are revealed.

0:08:460:08:49

If the total score is 15 or more, the star they are standing on

0:08:500:08:53

lights up...

0:08:530:08:55

they go through to the next stage and the crowd goes wild.

0:08:550:09:00

So with the judges good to go, the boys backstage

0:09:000:09:03

are preparing for their big moment.

0:09:030:09:05

-Have you done it before, live performing?

-Like, small crowds.

0:09:090:09:12

-Oh, right.

-Yeah. Nothing as big as this.

0:09:120:09:14

-Are you nervous, then?

-Thinking about it I was, like, shaking and

0:09:140:09:17

thinking, "Oh, my God," and then I get that butterfly feeling. I'm just, like, "Oh, my God."

0:09:170:09:22

-Are you nervous?

-You know what? When they say your name and then they get

0:09:220:09:26

you ready, and they say it's your turn, give it your all.

0:09:260:09:30

Good luck, everyone. I hope we find what we're looking for.

0:09:300:09:33

These first rounds, I think we've just got to be open about it

0:09:330:09:36

-and see who's got the potential.

-Yep.

0:09:360:09:38

Clinton loves Michael Jackson.

0:09:440:09:46

He knows every song, knows every dance move.

0:09:460:09:49

He sings sometimes with a glove, the one glove.

0:09:500:09:53

He constantly works on his craft. He's got a studio in his own house.

0:09:540:09:58

Tell him to turn it down and he turns it down only a little inch

0:09:590:10:02

and it's still a bit loud.

0:10:020:10:04

He is the light of the room. He's always happy.

0:10:040:10:08

Clinton is the coolest ever brother that I could ever wish for.

0:10:080:10:12

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:140:10:16

-Hello!

-Hey, how are you doing?

-Hey, what's your name?

0:10:300:10:34

-My name's Clinton Elvis, I'm 23 and I'm from East London.

-Elvis?

0:10:340:10:39

-Clinton Elvis.

-I love it, I love it. Thank you very much.

0:10:390:10:43

-And I love that hat.

-Oh, wow. Thank you. This is my lucky hat as well.

0:10:430:10:45

So talk us through what's going on with this outfit.

0:10:450:10:47

So, basically this is my ensemble. As you can see,

0:10:470:10:50

red is my favourite colour.

0:10:500:10:51

I've got my lucky rosary, thanks to my mum and also...

0:10:510:10:54

AUDIENCE: Aww!

0:10:540:10:55

Make some noise for my mummy, please, because she raised me, man!

0:10:550:10:58

Mum!

0:10:580:10:59

So I see we have the piano back there,

0:11:030:11:05

so I think that we're in for a great performance tonight.

0:11:050:11:08

Yeah, I'd like to give everybody a great performance to be honest,

0:11:080:11:11

-so I'm ready.

-All right. Well, let's do it.

0:11:110:11:13

# I said your love

0:11:340:11:36

# Keeps lifting me higher

0:11:360:11:40

# Than I've ever been lifted before

0:11:400:11:46

# So keep it up and quench my desire

0:11:460:11:54

# And I'll be at your side forevermore... #

0:11:540:12:00

A one, two, three!

0:12:000:12:03

Come on!

0:12:060:12:08

How are we feeling, people?

0:12:080:12:10

Are we ready?

0:12:110:12:13

Hey! Hey, hey!

0:12:130:12:16

# ..I said your love keeps lifting me higher

0:12:160:12:21

# Than I've ever been lifted before

0:12:210:12:26

# So keep it up Ooh, quench my desire now

0:12:260:12:30

# And I'll be at your side forevermore

0:12:300:12:34

# Come on! You know your love

0:12:340:12:37

# It keeps on lifting me

0:12:370:12:40

# Higher and higher!

0:12:400:12:44

# Girl, I said your love keeps lifting me higher

0:12:440:12:49

# Than I've ever been lifted before

0:12:490:12:53

-# Say hey-ey-ey!

-AUDIENCE: # Hey-ey-ey!

0:12:530:12:56

-# Hey-ey-ey-ey-ey!

-AUDIENCE: # Hey-ey-ey-ey-ey!

0:12:560:12:58

# You know I said

0:12:580:13:00

# Thank you everybody. #

0:13:000:13:03

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:13:030:13:05

Clinton Elvis, everybody!

0:13:120:13:15

Well done. Good job, sir.

0:13:150:13:18

Judges, if you want to input your scores, please.

0:13:200:13:23

Amber, what did you think of Clinton Elvis?

0:13:230:13:25

You know, I loved that you came out here

0:13:250:13:27

and you gave it all that you had,

0:13:270:13:29

and you wanted to showcase everything you can do.

0:13:290:13:31

I just felt like you had so much energy, the vocals were a little

0:13:310:13:34

bit shaky, but the performance was just great, and the audience loved you.

0:13:340:13:38

-You guys loved it, right?

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:13:380:13:40

They loved you.

0:13:400:13:41

Martin Kemp, what have you got to say?

0:13:410:13:44

You know, it was so heartwarming.

0:13:440:13:46

When anybody comes on this stage, enjoy yourself,

0:13:460:13:50

because that is going to come across to all the judges, to all the people

0:13:500:13:53

in the audience, to the people in the gods when you play the theatre.

0:13:530:13:57

Also, I've got to say, I loved the slow bit it on the piano.

0:13:570:14:00

I mean, it really touched me.

0:14:000:14:02

If you'd have carried on with that, I would've been in tears.

0:14:020:14:05

Thank God you stopped.

0:14:050:14:06

APPLAUSE

0:14:060:14:08

Right. Clinton Elvis, we're going to find out if you are going through

0:14:080:14:14

to the next stage of the competition, OK?

0:14:140:14:16

So just a reminder for everybody, each judge has five stars in

0:14:160:14:20

total to award, making a total of 20 stars available.

0:14:200:14:24

Right now the judges only know how they voted individually.

0:14:240:14:28

Nobody knows the total number of stars, OK?

0:14:280:14:32

This is number 15. If this lights up, you're going through.

0:14:320:14:35

We're about to find out how Clinton Elvis has been scored.

0:14:350:14:39

Ah! Come on! Here we go.

0:14:500:14:54

Come on!

0:14:550:14:56

16.

0:15:050:15:07

Well done. Well done.

0:15:090:15:12

-I'm so pleased for you.

-I'm pleased for myself. Thank you, guys.

0:15:120:15:17

Look, Gary Barlow, yeah, look, he gave you four out of five.

0:15:170:15:20

-You enjoyed it.

-I did, absolutely.

0:15:200:15:23

I mean, it's interesting the choices people make when they

0:15:230:15:26

do auditions, you know? Do I play it down? Do I go simple?

0:15:260:15:29

You threw the kitchen sink at this.

0:15:290:15:33

A bit of a gamble completely paid off.

0:15:330:15:35

I loved the bit on the piano, showing us you're a musician.

0:15:350:15:38

Out front as the entertainer, singer and that outfit is great.

0:15:380:15:42

Reminds me of one of my old Relight My Fire outfits. Fantastic.

0:15:420:15:46

-Well done.

-Thank you so much.

0:15:460:15:48

Good start.

0:15:580:15:59

I really wanted him to carry on with the slow version of the song.

0:15:590:16:03

I was really touched when he said, "This is for my mum."

0:16:030:16:05

-But if you're going to use, like, one minute 40...

-Yeah, absolutely.

0:16:050:16:08

..throw everything at it.

0:16:080:16:10

This place is mad, it's ridiculous.

0:16:160:16:18

Guys, hello. Hello!

0:16:210:16:23

You've made a middle-aged lady from Leatherhead very, very happy.

0:16:230:16:27

Throughout our auditions,

0:16:290:16:30

I'll be backstage in the common room getting to know our boys.

0:16:300:16:35

Hang on, I thought you were supposed to be working?

0:16:350:16:38

Yeah, I'll be finding out why they want a part in the musical.

0:16:390:16:42

And celebrating or commiserating,

0:16:420:16:45

depending on those all-important stars.

0:16:450:16:47

-I'm assuming you got through.

-16.

0:16:530:16:56

No way!

0:17:030:17:05

What's going on in here, then?

0:17:070:17:08

How are you, guys?

0:17:080:17:10

Beautiful!

0:17:100:17:13

Some of you guys might just suddenly find yourself

0:17:140:17:18

just put together as this five.

0:17:180:17:20

Is it awkward? Is it weird when you're starting out and you don't know each other?

0:17:200:17:24

-Yeah.

-It is.

-LAUGHTER

0:17:240:17:28

When we got together, we weren't all five amazing singers, we weren't,

0:17:280:17:32

you know, five amazing dancers, but we sort of helped each other along.

0:17:320:17:36

To be honest with you, our routines

0:17:360:17:38

for the songs were a little bit too much.

0:17:380:17:40

When Gary was singing A Million Love Songs, a really slow song,

0:17:400:17:43

we were all in the back, backflipping, head spins!

0:17:430:17:45

LAUGHTER

0:17:450:17:47

Hoping he's boy band material,

0:17:510:17:53

18-year-old Deaglan has travelled from Northern Ireland to audition.

0:17:530:17:57

-Is this a big deal for you, the competition?

-Yeah, it is.

0:17:570:18:00

Get out of Ireland for a while.

0:18:000:18:02

How do you think you'll feel when you're, like, just about to go on?

0:18:020:18:05

I'll be so nervous.

0:18:050:18:07

Like, just stepping out onto the stage and seeing all the people

0:18:070:18:10

and especially the four judges, like, it'll be mad.

0:18:100:18:12

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:18:180:18:20

-Hi!

-Hi!

-What's your name?

0:18:260:18:30

Deaglan Arthurs, I'm 18 and from Ireland, County Tyrone.

0:18:300:18:34

All right, all right. So where do you normally sing?

0:18:340:18:39

Erm...in the shower.

0:18:390:18:43

CHEERING AND LAUGHTER

0:18:430:18:45

-In the house.

-In the house.

0:18:450:18:47

And in church, but, like, I like riffing,

0:18:470:18:50

so, like, my mate told me to calm down a wee bit and just talked me back to the church.

0:18:500:18:55

-LAUGHTER

-I love it!

0:18:550:18:59

So what is your ultimate dream?

0:18:590:19:01

Definitely, definitely selling out arenas, having a good time,

0:19:010:19:05

-being known for my singing.

-I love it.

0:19:050:19:08

Well, I'm really looking forward to hearing you sing right now,

0:19:080:19:10

so let's hear it.

0:19:100:19:12

-Yeah, sure.

-"Sure."

0:19:120:19:14

# Hey! New York! #

0:21:000:21:05

Great job, Deaglan. Fantastic!

0:21:140:21:17

A standing ovation for Deaglan.

0:21:170:21:19

Wow!

0:21:220:21:23

That's fantastic.

0:21:230:21:25

Judges, don't forget to score, don't forget to put in your scores.

0:21:250:21:28

-I sort of see what you mean, a bit much for church.

-Uh-huh.

0:21:300:21:34

Dannii Minogue, are you a fan?

0:21:350:21:37

With everybody who walks out on stage, I'm, like,

0:21:370:21:39

could I see them in the theatre?

0:21:390:21:42

I see the theatre in YOU!

0:21:420:21:44

Martin Kemp, what do you have to say?

0:21:480:21:50

-Listen, I absolutely loved it, but...

-Uh-oh.

0:21:500:21:53

..there was a little bit of room left for improvement in the vocals.

0:21:530:21:58

Your lower end was a little bit pitchy,

0:21:580:22:00

but take my four as a really good four.

0:22:000:22:03

Well, we know what he's scoring you. LAUGHTER

0:22:030:22:07

Get out!

0:22:120:22:14

I'm going.

0:22:150:22:17

Have you seen one of these shows before, Martin?

0:22:190:22:22

LAUGHTER

0:22:220:22:24

How does it work again?

0:22:240:22:26

There's supposed to be a little tension.

0:22:260:22:27

OK, I can reveal you won't be getting 20 stars.

0:22:270:22:31

Let's find out how Deaglan scored.

0:22:340:22:36

-AUDIENCE:

-Whoaaaaa!

0:22:500:22:52

Yeah!

0:22:560:22:58

CHEERING

0:23:030:23:04

Wow, congratulations, well done.

0:23:060:23:09

-I'm thrilled for you.

-Thank you so much.

0:23:090:23:11

Amber, a five.

0:23:110:23:12

Are you not worried that in a band he'll steal the show?

0:23:120:23:16

No, I think as a star, you don't dim your light for anybody.

0:23:160:23:19

If he's going to shine, he can shine.

0:23:190:23:21

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:23:210:23:23

-Gary, what have you got to say?

-Amazing, absolutely...

0:23:230:23:27

-CHEERING

-..entertaining,

0:23:270:23:29

great vocals, the surprise factor...

0:23:290:23:33

-IN DEEP VOICE:

-..when he went so low,

0:23:330:23:35

it's like, what are we watching?

0:23:350:23:37

It was absolutely great and I love your personality, love it.

0:23:370:23:41

-Love it.

-Thank you very much.

0:23:410:23:43

Ladies and gentlemen, a star is born.

0:23:430:23:45

-It's Deaglan, everybody!

-Thank you.

0:23:450:23:47

CHEERING Well done, you, congratulations.

0:23:470:23:49

-Wow.

-I loved it.

0:23:530:23:55

And with 18 stars under his belt,

0:23:560:23:58

the surprises didn't stop there for Deaglan.

0:23:580:24:00

THEY WHOOP

0:24:000:24:02

Well done.

0:24:020:24:04

Well done.

0:24:040:24:05

Oh, my goodness. Well done.

0:24:050:24:08

Hello. I think... Hello, how are you? We missed you.

0:24:100:24:13

LAUGHTER

0:24:130:24:15

Look at the face!

0:24:180:24:19

That was some first impression.

0:24:220:24:25

You left me hanging. I was like...

0:24:250:24:27

Our winning five boys will need to blend together

0:24:350:24:37

to play a pop group in a new stage show called The Band.

0:24:370:24:41

So apart from being able to smoulder your way through

0:24:410:24:44

some extreme weather conditions,

0:24:440:24:46

what other qualities might our auditionees need

0:24:460:24:48

in order to be a perfect boy band member?

0:24:480:24:51

The strength of the band is having five people

0:24:510:24:53

who all do something completely different.

0:24:530:24:56

You have to have someone that dances well.

0:24:560:24:59

(Gary, no-one mention Gary.)

0:24:590:25:01

You have to have the mysterious one,

0:25:010:25:03

-the quiet one.

-There's normally one that's more cheeky than the others

0:25:030:25:07

and I think with Take That we all know who I'm talking about.

0:25:070:25:10

# I bought a ticket to the world... #

0:25:100:25:13

In Spandau Ballet, we had an amazing singer.

0:25:130:25:16

# But now I've come back again... #

0:25:160:25:18

Gary wrote incredible songs.

0:25:180:25:21

Myself, didn't do much,

0:25:210:25:23

but I made a few front covers for the girls

0:25:230:25:26

and that was kind of my input into the band.

0:25:260:25:28

You were so much more to me than that, Martin.

0:25:300:25:33

HE COUGHS

0:25:330:25:34

Our next boy band hopeful has never performed in public before.

0:25:340:25:38

Luckily, we've got the perfect duo on hand

0:25:380:25:40

to offer some pre-audition words of wisdom.

0:25:400:25:43

-I heard you hadn't held a mic before.

-I haven't, no.

0:25:430:25:46

-So we brought you... It's not on.

-Oh, it's getting fancy.

0:25:460:25:49

-They sound a bit different when they're on.

-Yep.

0:25:490:25:52

I thought at least you would have held one.

0:25:520:25:54

I appreciate it, that's nice.

0:25:540:25:56

When we first started off as a band, we had one mic, Gary had one mic

0:25:560:25:59

and the rest of us had these plastic mics. They're quite expensive.

0:25:590:26:02

Yeah, yeah.

0:26:020:26:03

We used to pass it round for certain songs.

0:26:030:26:07

We built into our routines little passes, little spin-round passes.

0:26:070:26:12

Even on the floor, weren't it?

0:26:120:26:14

Even lying down on the floor, we were passing the mic.

0:26:140:26:18

That's for you to walk round with

0:26:180:26:20

-and enjoy until they call your name.

-I appreciate it, lads.

0:26:200:26:23

HE EXHALES

0:26:230:26:25

You seem more nervous now I've given you that!

0:26:250:26:28

Just make sure you don't hold it that way.

0:26:280:26:30

THEY LAUGH

0:26:300:26:31

He's a cool dude, is Jamie.

0:26:370:26:40

He just brings light to the house.

0:26:400:26:42

He's always joking.

0:26:420:26:44

He's also following in the footsteps of his dad and his grandad

0:26:440:26:47

and he's now training to be a firefighter.

0:26:470:26:49

Jamie is very much a ladies' man.

0:26:490:26:51

A singing fireman goes down well and that's Jamie's words, not mine.

0:26:510:26:55

He's always thinking of other people,

0:26:560:26:58

so he'll be absolutely great in a boy band.

0:26:580:27:01

Pretend you're singing to your nana, son.

0:27:010:27:03

CHEERING

0:27:030:27:05

-What's your name, please?

-I'm Jamie, I'm 21.

0:27:140:27:16

Jamie, tell us about yourself.

0:27:160:27:18

Um, I'm your basic 21-year-old.

0:27:180:27:20

Never been on a stage before, never sang with a mic before,

0:27:200:27:24

I'm a maintenance engineer by day

0:27:250:27:27

and then I'm training to be a fireman.

0:27:270:27:29

-AUDIENCE:

-Oooh!

0:27:290:27:32

He-llo!

0:27:320:27:34

Your first time on stage, to do it here - are you crazy?

0:27:340:27:37

-Yeah!

-What made you apply for this?

0:27:370:27:40

I was thinking about gigging and things like that and I was like,

0:27:400:27:43

"Why not just do something outrageous,"

0:27:430:27:45

get the views of other people obviously in big positions,

0:27:450:27:48

like yourself,

0:27:480:27:49

so getting your feedback, it's only going to help us,

0:27:490:27:51

you know what I mean?

0:27:510:27:52

Fantastic. That's a great attitude to have.

0:27:520:27:55

-I hope it goes well for you.

-So do I!

0:27:550:27:57

LAUGHTER

0:27:570:27:59

-Listen, best of luck.

-Thank you.

0:27:590:28:01

# Slow down

0:28:210:28:24

# Lie down

0:28:240:28:26

# Remember it's just you and me

0:28:260:28:31

# And grant my last request and just let me hold you

0:28:320:28:37

# Don't shrug your shoulders

0:28:370:28:41

# And lay down beside me

0:28:410:28:44

# Grant my last request and just let me hold you.

0:28:440:28:49

# Don't shrug your shoulders

0:28:490:28:52

# And lay down beside me

0:28:530:28:56

# Oh

0:28:590:29:00

# But one last time let's go there

0:29:000:29:05

# Lay down beside me. #

0:29:050:29:09

CHEERING

0:29:110:29:14

Jamie, everybody! That was Jamie!

0:29:170:29:20

Judges, please enter your scores.

0:29:200:29:23

-Listen to that response!

-Thank you, guys.

0:29:230:29:25

They like you, Jamie, they like you.

0:29:250:29:27

CHEERING

0:29:270:29:29

Let's go to the judges. Gary, what would you say?

0:29:290:29:32

This is one tiny step forward for you,

0:29:320:29:34

you're at the start of your career.

0:29:340:29:36

Get on stages, get out there, bang down people's doors,

0:29:360:29:40

try and get as much experience as you can.

0:29:400:29:43

You are right at the start of your journey right now.

0:29:430:29:46

APPLAUSE

0:29:460:29:47

Let's go to Amber next.

0:29:470:29:49

-You were a little timid, afraid of the mic a little bit.

-Yeah!

0:29:490:29:54

Just a little bit, it was all the way down here,

0:29:540:29:57

-so I could barely hear you.

-Sorry!

0:29:570:29:59

But I do love that you came down and even though you were shaking,

0:29:590:30:04

that shows that you really want to go for it

0:30:040:30:07

and I think that you love performing and I can really, really see that.

0:30:070:30:10

All right, let's find out how Jamie's been scored.

0:30:130:30:16

Oh, man.

0:30:170:30:18

Oh!

0:30:330:30:35

BOOING

0:30:360:30:39

You only got 11 stars, but this audience obviously love you,

0:30:410:30:45

you really won them over.

0:30:450:30:46

CHEERING

0:30:460:30:48

Martin, you know, he obviously has the likeability thing in spades,

0:30:510:30:56

so what would you say to him, what advice would you give him?

0:30:560:30:59

Practise, practise, practise.

0:30:590:31:00

It's really old-fashioned and boring,

0:31:000:31:03

-but whenever you can get on stage, do it.

-Yeah.

0:31:030:31:06

Dannii, what have you got to say?

0:31:060:31:08

You were shaking so much, I've never seen someone so nervous singing.

0:31:080:31:12

I was out of breath for you,

0:31:120:31:14

but you have it there, you have it in you.

0:31:140:31:16

Nobody starts off the best,

0:31:160:31:18

they start off with the will to be the best.

0:31:180:31:20

Gary, when you hear the love of that audience,

0:31:200:31:22

do you kind of slightly regret now that he's not going through?

0:31:220:31:26

-Um, do you know what...

-AUDIENCE SHOUTS OUT

0:31:260:31:29

BOOING

0:31:310:31:33

-They like you.

-I like these people.

-Yeah!

0:31:330:31:36

-Yeah.

-Like I said, I thought you did very well,

0:31:360:31:38

this is the start of his journey right here.

0:31:380:31:40

Is there anything you'd like to say to the judges?

0:31:400:31:43

Genuinely, like, thank you very much just for listening to me,

0:31:430:31:45

cos yous have all been sound.

0:31:450:31:46

It's been really nice, so thank you, guys.

0:31:460:31:48

-CHEERING I'm sorry.

-It's all right.

0:31:480:31:51

Jamie's leaving the competition. Give him a huge round of applause!

0:31:510:31:54

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Cheers.

0:31:540:31:56

-You go that way. Well done, sir.

-Thank you.

0:31:560:31:58

You can't bottle that thing that the audience loved.

0:32:020:32:06

The difference with a stage show is you don't get to do your interview

0:32:060:32:09

before it where everyone falls in love with you.

0:32:090:32:11

That's true, that's a good point.

0:32:110:32:13

-You've convinced me.

-OK, good.

-All right, let's keep going. Here we go.

0:32:130:32:16

Thoughts, feelings?

0:32:160:32:18

I started flat.

0:32:180:32:19

-I think everything gets to me a bit, you know what I mean?

-Yeah.

0:32:190:32:23

I tried to correct it, then I think I just threw myself the other way

0:32:230:32:27

-then tried to make up for it and threw myself again.

-Oh!

0:32:270:32:30

As soon as I get home, I'm going to start gigging properly.

0:32:300:32:33

Get out there, yeah, I'm going to really go for it now.

0:32:330:32:35

Will you keep up the firefighting for a bit while you do it?

0:32:350:32:38

-Definitely.

-You are a double threat -

0:32:380:32:40

you are a singer and a firefighter.

0:32:400:32:42

That's not bad, is it?

0:32:420:32:43

So with Jamie not quite meeting the mark,

0:32:450:32:48

the pressure's on and with the prize on offer a real job

0:32:480:32:51

in a brand-new musical, the stakes are high.

0:32:510:32:54

One of the flavours I want in this stage show

0:32:540:32:58

is the energy, the passion and the commitment

0:32:580:33:02

and ambition we had in our early years.

0:33:020:33:06

Yep, hopefully not so much the outfits, Gary.

0:33:060:33:08

Hey, not everyone can pull off red cycling shorts, you know.

0:33:080:33:11

Too true, Graham.

0:33:110:33:13

These guys, they're going to be on a stage in a theatre.

0:33:130:33:15

We're looking for someone who can sing, someone who can move,

0:33:150:33:18

someone who can be part of a team,

0:33:180:33:20

someone who has the charisma to keep an audience

0:33:200:33:23

on the edge of their seat.

0:33:230:33:25

During the audition stage, the boys perform individually,

0:33:250:33:28

but as the competition continues, they'll need to perform in groups

0:33:280:33:31

and even collaborate with some incredible talent

0:33:310:33:33

as they try to prove they have what it takes

0:33:330:33:36

to play a boy band in a musical.

0:33:360:33:37

But before that, they have to get the all-important 15 stars or more.

0:33:370:33:41

Hoping to make it to that next stage is dancer Jazzie.

0:33:440:33:47

..six, seven, eight...

0:33:470:33:49

Duh, uh, uh...

0:33:490:33:50

Get into the...

0:33:500:33:52

-Do you do, like, battles?

-Battles and stuff like that.

0:33:570:34:00

Well, to be fair, I have started to get into more, like...

0:34:000:34:03

-contemporary and try and do ballet, but it hurts!

-Yeah! Ballet!

0:34:030:34:07

-See, that's me, ballet, jazz...

-I wish my leg could do this.

0:34:070:34:11

My leg can't do that.

0:34:110:34:12

My leg can do that, that's about it. It don't go high enough.

0:34:120:34:15

When Jazzie was four years old,

0:34:180:34:20

his dad gave him a dance tape and he never stopped dancing.

0:34:200:34:24

He'd jump in my mum's bed and sing to my mum early in the morning,

0:34:260:34:28

like, seven o'clock, when you're just not in the mood.

0:34:280:34:31

Now he's a professional dancer.

0:34:310:34:33

I can't even put a number on how many trainers he's got.

0:34:330:34:36

He can have two pair of trainers that look exactly the same,

0:34:360:34:39

but for Jazzie, trainers is part of his life.

0:34:390:34:43

Jazzie is mostly known as a dancer.

0:34:430:34:45

If people hear him sing, they'll be surprised.

0:34:450:34:48

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:34:490:34:52

Tell us what your name is.

0:34:590:35:00

My name is Jazzie Mattis, I'm 24 and I'm from Nottingham.

0:35:000:35:04

-Jazzie!

-CHEERING

0:35:040:35:06

Jazzie, I'm guessing, just because you've brought your lino with you,

0:35:070:35:11

and when I'm going to move I usually take my lino with me as well,

0:35:110:35:14

I'm guessing that you're going to hit a few... Yeah, here we go.

0:35:140:35:17

That takes me back to 1991, that does.

0:35:180:35:21

-WHOOPING

-It does!

0:35:210:35:25

-It does.

-Hey, that was a good year.

0:35:250:35:27

Cos I remember seeing them do that warm up and thinking,

0:35:270:35:29

"Oh, no, I'm not going to do that."

0:35:290:35:31

Everyone's got to learn that one.

0:35:310:35:33

What are you going to bring to the boy band scenario?

0:35:330:35:36

The one thing about me - I'm not scared of trying something new

0:35:360:35:40

or going well out of my own range. Maybe I can't even do it,

0:35:400:35:43

but I'll give it a try and if I can't do it,

0:35:430:35:46

-I gave it a good try.

-We love that.

0:35:460:35:49

-When you're ready, you go for it.

-All right.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:37:330:37:36

Well done, sir.

0:37:390:37:40

Congratulations, well done.

0:37:400:37:43

I don't know what expression that is on your mother's face.

0:37:430:37:46

You happy, you good, Mum?

0:37:460:37:48

Yeah?

0:37:480:37:49

-Yes, I am!

-LAUGHTER

0:37:490:37:51

-Let's go to Gary.

-Oh, wow, fantastic energy.

0:37:510:37:55

-Absolutely brilliant.

-CHEERING

0:37:550:37:57

Now, listen, at the moment, the vocals are here

0:38:010:38:03

and the dancing's up here somewhere, all right?

0:38:030:38:06

But I'm sure we can work around that in some way,

0:38:060:38:09

-because that energy is undeniable, what you bring to this.

-Thank you.

0:38:090:38:13

WHOOPING

0:38:130:38:15

What did you think of Jazzie, Amber?

0:38:170:38:18

I think your mother named you right - that was jazzy!

0:38:180:38:22

Thank you!

0:38:220:38:24

You know, it's not always about the vocals,

0:38:250:38:28

especially in a group.

0:38:280:38:30

Sometimes it is about the showmanship,

0:38:300:38:32

showing up and giving it your all, getting the audience involved

0:38:320:38:36

and that's exactly what you did.

0:38:360:38:38

CHEERING All right.

0:38:380:38:39

Let's find out how Jazzie has been scored.

0:38:390:38:42

-AUDIENCE:

-Whooooaaa!

0:38:550:38:57

CHEERING

0:39:020:39:04

Whoa, Jazzie!

0:39:050:39:07

17!

0:39:100:39:12

-That is a great score, sir.

-Thank you.

0:39:120:39:15

-You're going through and then some. Well done.

-Thank you very much.

0:39:150:39:18

Martin, four out of five.

0:39:180:39:19

You know something that's really important

0:39:190:39:21

when you come to an audition like this?

0:39:210:39:23

You do not treat it like your first audition.

0:39:230:39:26

You treat it as if you've already got the job

0:39:260:39:29

and that's exactly what you did.

0:39:290:39:32

APPLAUSE

0:39:320:39:34

Big thanks, big thanks go to Dannii Minogue with her five out of five.

0:39:340:39:40

-Thank you!

-Yeah!

0:39:400:39:42

You know what, Jazzie? You said, "I may not be able to do something yet,

0:39:420:39:46

"but I'm going to give it a go if that's what you want me to do,"

0:39:460:39:49

-so don't ever lose that.

-Thank you.

0:39:490:39:52

So, Jazzie, what are you taking away from this?

0:39:520:39:55

Actually singing and dancing, to do it together,

0:39:550:39:59

you've got to know when to put in certain amounts of energy

0:39:590:40:03

and not to move too far back

0:40:030:40:04

because you can get carried away with the moves.

0:40:040:40:07

I love dancing and I love singing

0:40:070:40:08

-and I need to make them like this, equal.

-Yeah, yeah, like that.

0:40:080:40:12

-That's it!

-Yeah!

0:40:120:40:13

Ladies and gentlemen, we will see him again,

0:40:130:40:15

it's Jazzie! CHEERING

0:40:150:40:18

Well done, you.

0:40:180:40:20

Fantastic, well done.

0:40:200:40:22

Do you know who he should watch?

0:40:240:40:25

Because he still moves around so much as he's singing,

0:40:250:40:29

-is Mick Jagger.

-Yes!

0:40:290:40:31

He still moves so much and he's 162 or something, isn't he?

0:40:310:40:36

Most of our successful auditionees have found themselves

0:40:400:40:43

in our common room after we opened applications

0:40:430:40:45

to people of all shapes, sizes, ages and genders,

0:40:450:40:48

from total beginners to professional performers

0:40:480:40:50

who've played to packed-out theatres.

0:40:500:40:53

However, a select few needed a little encouragement

0:40:530:40:56

from their family and friends and a certain Mr Barlow.

0:40:560:41:00

We're on the coast in Yorkshire, home of the legendary pudding,

0:41:050:41:08

terrier...

0:41:080:41:09

..and 19-year-old Gary Barlow super-fan Tyler.

0:41:110:41:14

When Tyler's not singing in local nursing homes

0:41:140:41:17

and working men's clubs, he helps out in the family-run cafe.

0:41:170:41:21

He thinks he's being filmed today

0:41:210:41:23

for a documentary on the local community.

0:41:230:41:25

But Mum knows our cameras are really there to capture the moment

0:41:260:41:30

Tyler comes face-to-face with his idol.

0:41:300:41:32

I nominated Tyler because of Gary Barlow.

0:41:320:41:37

For Tyler just to be in the same room as Gary is massive for him.

0:41:370:41:42

He's followed Gary Barlow from being a very, very young boy.

0:41:420:41:46

He's modelled himself on him.

0:41:460:41:48

He's just spent all his youth playing and singing.

0:41:480:41:54

I think starting music when you're young

0:41:540:41:57

is like if you're going to be a great tennis player,

0:41:570:42:00

you learn to play when you're about two

0:42:000:42:01

and if Tyler's been doing music for many years,

0:42:010:42:04

that will play to his advantage.

0:42:040:42:06

It's time to upgrade his audience. He needs a bigger audience.

0:42:060:42:10

MUSIC: The Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner

0:42:100:42:13

Don't you worry, Gary, we're on it.

0:42:130:42:15

THEY SING: # Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside... #

0:42:180:42:20

These local ladies are about to pay a visit to the cafe.

0:42:200:42:24

There could be a pretty large order of scones,

0:42:240:42:26

or should I say "scoanes", coming Tyler's way.

0:42:260:42:29

# Beside the seaside, beside the sea. #

0:42:290:42:32

Ey up,

0:42:340:42:36

it's a coach!

0:42:360:42:37

All that singing has clearly got the ladies thirsty.

0:42:390:42:42

I've got five teas and I've got...

0:42:420:42:44

Any more teas?

0:42:450:42:47

-Coffee.

-Coffee.

-And a spoon, please!

0:42:470:42:51

There's many things that I look forward to in my life.

0:42:520:42:55

A good cup of northern tea,

0:42:550:42:58

that's about as good as it gets.

0:42:580:43:01

TYLER SINGS

0:43:010:43:03

Over in the cafe, our undercover ladies have roped Tyler into

0:43:030:43:06

a performance of his favourite song.

0:43:060:43:08

# We can rule the world... #

0:43:080:43:11

Feel free to join in any time, Gary.

0:43:130:43:16

# If you stay with me, girl... #

0:43:160:43:17

Yeah, I think you might know the words to this one.

0:43:170:43:20

# ..rule the world. #

0:43:200:43:22

THEY WHOOP

0:43:220:43:25

Tell you what, you're getting a treat, yeah?

0:43:270:43:29

Ohhh!

0:43:310:43:32

WHOOPING AND SHRIEKING

0:43:350:43:36

-Oh, my God.

-Tyler.

0:43:380:43:40

How are you?

0:43:400:43:42

-Yeah.

-You OK?

0:43:420:43:44

-Where's Mum?

-Is this not...?

0:43:450:43:47

Hi, Alison, how are you doing?

0:43:470:43:50

Listen, I've got something to say to this young man.

0:43:500:43:53

Your mum's been very naughty and has nominated you

0:43:530:43:57

to come and audition for us on the Let It Shine stage.

0:43:570:44:00

When? When?!

0:44:000:44:02

My nan's got the biggest mouth on her.

0:44:050:44:07

They've done a good job keeping that a secret, I tell you.

0:44:070:44:09

I've been really stitched up here,

0:44:090:44:11

in the most fantastic possible way.

0:44:110:44:13

This is proper tea, this is.

0:44:130:44:15

Yorkshire tea!

0:44:150:44:17

That's what it's meant to taste like.

0:44:170:44:20

Gorgeous.

0:44:200:44:21

CHEERING

0:44:210:44:23

Now, hang on, I recognise this face.

0:44:320:44:35

-Tyler.

-Yeah, we've met before.

-Is your mum here today? She is!

0:44:350:44:39

Hi, Mum!

0:44:390:44:40

She is here, Gary, Alison.

0:44:400:44:42

Tyler's mum wrote to us and he was singing in his mum's cafe.

0:44:420:44:47

-Then you walked in!

-That's right.

-LAUGHTER

0:44:470:44:49

I tell you what, though,

0:44:490:44:50

we'd been so busy in that cafe that I'd not had anything to eat,

0:44:500:44:53

so when you walked through, I thought it was like a mirage.

0:44:530:44:56

LAUGHTER

0:44:560:44:57

Apart from the cafe, what's your other experience in performing?

0:44:570:45:00

Just singing everywhere that'll have me, really,

0:45:000:45:03

just gigging all the time, in and about Scarborough where I live,

0:45:030:45:05

-just all the time, music.

-I get the passion from you. You're really...

0:45:050:45:10

-You want this to be your life.

-Yeah.

-Do your best.

-Cheers, thank you.

0:45:100:45:15

# You are so beautiful

0:45:350:45:42

# To me

0:45:450:45:48

# Can't you see?

0:45:480:45:55

# You're everything I hoped for

0:45:550:46:00

# And you're everything I need

0:46:020:46:09

0:46:350:46:38

# Can't you see?

0:46:380:46:43

# You're everything I hoped for

0:46:440:46:48

# And you're everything I need

0:46:510:46:59

# You are so beautiful

0:47:010:47:07

# To me. #

0:47:070:47:13

CHEERING

0:47:130:47:16

Tyler, everybody!

0:47:170:47:19

Wow!

0:47:190:47:21

-Did that feel so bad?

-Yeah, it's nerve-racking, innit, but...

0:47:210:47:24

Yeah, yeah. It's good, though, isn't it?

0:47:240:47:26

-Yeah!

-It's telly, lights.

0:47:260:47:28

Let's go to the judges. Gary, what did you think?

0:47:290:47:32

Tyler, were you really pleased with that?

0:47:320:47:35

-I've done it better.

-You've done it better?

0:47:350:47:37

I feel like you've done it better probably as well.

0:47:370:47:40

It's a new surrounding, singing into a mic,

0:47:400:47:42

sounds are coming from all different places,

0:47:420:47:45

but you lost your pitch a few times,

0:47:450:47:47

but your falsetto's very nice - the transition between full voice

0:47:470:47:50

and falsetto could be slightly better,

0:47:500:47:52

but I thought, in general, I thought it was a pretty good audition.

0:47:520:47:57

I'm hoping it's good enough to get you through,

0:47:570:47:59

because I do see potential with you.

0:47:590:48:01

-That's fair enough.

-All right.

-No, it's good.

-That's Gary.

0:48:010:48:05

Let's go on to Dannii.

0:48:050:48:06

I think there's something so special there.

0:48:060:48:10

What you did when you walked out on stage

0:48:100:48:13

was you were soaking it all up.

0:48:130:48:15

I could see it going through your head, like, "This is what I want."

0:48:150:48:18

It made complete sense to me why your family would nominate you,

0:48:180:48:22

cos they know this is your passion.

0:48:220:48:25

What you can do with that song if you have professionals around you

0:48:250:48:29

would blow my mind.

0:48:290:48:31

APPLAUSE OK, nice comments, nice comments.

0:48:310:48:33

Amber, what have you got to say?

0:48:330:48:36

That song holds such a special place in my heart,

0:48:360:48:39

it's something that my mom sings to me all the time

0:48:390:48:41

and I am incredibly homesick right now

0:48:410:48:44

and I thank you for singing that.

0:48:440:48:45

I had to fight back tears while you were singing it, seriously.

0:48:450:48:49

Thank you for that.

0:48:490:48:50

You're welcome.

0:48:500:48:52

It's time for all of us and the judges

0:48:530:48:56

CHEERING

0:49:200:49:21

Look at that, 17!

0:49:270:49:30

Aww! I couldn't be happier for you.

0:49:300:49:33

To be honest, now, you didn't think that was going to happen, did you?

0:49:330:49:36

-No, no.

-You didn't think that was going to happen.

0:49:360:49:38

They're horrible.

0:49:380:49:40

Dannii, that's fantastic, five stars from you.

0:49:420:49:44

Five. I see something in you that is going to move people.

0:49:440:49:48

In a theatre show, you need that.

0:49:480:49:51

CHEERING

0:49:510:49:53

Gary, people at home who were listening, they'll have heard

0:49:530:49:57

some of the notes at the end there - four stars is a lot.

0:49:570:50:00

Do you know what?

0:50:000:50:01

I feel like everybody voted with their hearts for you here.

0:50:010:50:04

We all felt your performance tonight was a bit rough round the edges,

0:50:040:50:08

but work on those nerves, don't let them defeat you,

0:50:080:50:11

because you do have talent.

0:50:110:50:13

I want you to come back brimming with confidence.

0:50:130:50:16

You got 17 stars. We'll see you again.

0:50:160:50:19

Tyler, everybody! Congratulations, well done.

CHEERING

0:50:220:50:23

Oh, don't make me cry!

0:50:270:50:29

It's going to happen right now.

0:50:290:50:31

-I saw that, I saw that.

-Thank you.

0:50:310:50:34

Hopefully they won't notice.

0:50:360:50:40

-LAUGHTER

-Melanie...

0:50:400:50:42

-what's happening here?

-Mel!

0:50:420:50:45

There's a lot of musical lingo going on,

0:50:450:50:47

a lot of chat about the falsetto.

0:50:470:50:49

Kempy, I know you're obsessed.

0:50:490:50:51

It's when your voice goes from your chest into your head.

0:50:510:50:54

Mel, put your hand there.

0:50:540:50:57

OK, always happy to.

0:50:570:50:58

Hold there. Now, when I go...

0:50:580:51:00

-DEEP RESONANCE:

-# Ahhhhhh. #

0:51:000:51:02

-Can you feel that?

-Yes, it's vibrating.

-Can you feel this?

0:51:020:51:04

-HIGH:

-# Ahhhh. #

-Nothing!

0:51:040:51:06

-That's amazing!

-Head, chest.

0:51:060:51:09

-Shall I take it off?

-Please.

0:51:090:51:11

-DANNII:

-Are you stuck?

0:51:110:51:12

-Do you need help?

-This exercise is over.

0:51:120:51:15

I have to just pincer out so that no-one sees.

0:51:150:51:17

What are you standing on back there?

0:51:170:51:18

Pincering out?

0:51:180:51:20

-No-one notices. Lovely to see you all.

-No-one's noticed.

0:51:200:51:24

No-one's seen.

0:51:240:51:25

With my little music class over, our auditions crack on.

0:51:250:51:30

# Don't give up

0:51:300:51:32

# I've heard the music in you

0:51:320:51:34

# Yeah, yeah, yeah... #

0:51:340:51:37

And not every boy is quite right for a role in the band.

0:51:370:51:40

We've all auditioned for stuff.

0:51:420:51:44

We know what that feeling is.

0:51:440:51:46

Ooh!

0:51:460:51:48

-AMBER:

-Auditioning is hard. You can totally see yourself for a role,

0:51:480:51:52

but at the end of the day, it's what the judges are looking for.

0:51:520:51:55

I didn't think it went well for you tonight.

0:51:550:51:57

I don't think that you're right for this show.

0:51:570:52:00

# Sitting in the morning sun

0:52:000:52:03

# I'll be sitting when the evening comes... #

0:52:030:52:09

Even if you don't fit the role,

0:52:090:52:10

there's another audition somewhere else that's right for them.

0:52:100:52:14

Oh!

0:52:150:52:17

Sometimes it's the auditions that aren't right for you

0:52:170:52:20

that really teach you the most and give you the skills

0:52:200:52:23

to go on to do the stuff that you are right for.

0:52:230:52:25

I really see you doing this.

0:52:250:52:28

I'm just not sure that right now is the time for you.

0:52:280:52:31

# Met this girl on Monday

0:52:310:52:33

# I took her for a drink on Tuesday

0:52:330:52:36

# And we were making love by Wednesday

0:52:360:52:39

# And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday

0:52:390:52:41

# We chilled on Sunday... #

0:52:410:52:43

Rejection, it is a horrible part of this job,

0:52:430:52:45

but you have to get used to it.

0:52:450:52:47

Come on! Oh!

0:52:470:52:49

I thought you delivered it really well,

0:52:500:52:52

-but it was very pitchy.

-Yeah.

0:52:520:52:53

I think you need a bit more practice.

0:52:530:52:55

If you practised it and did it more and more,

0:52:550:52:57

you would probably be really great at it

0:52:570:53:00

because your tone is really good.

0:53:000:53:01

The bounce-back is almost the most important piece, taking that knock,

0:53:010:53:05

learning from it and then moving forward.

0:53:050:53:09

I'm really appreciative of all your feedback

0:53:090:53:12

and, yeah, thank you very much. I'll take it on board.

0:53:120:53:15

Come on, old bean.

0:53:190:53:21

Aww.

0:53:210:53:22

It seems to me, Bobby, what they were saying is you're good,

0:53:220:53:25

but you're not ready.

0:53:250:53:27

Most people I've ever sung in front of is my mum,

0:53:270:53:29

my nan and my grandad, so coming out to that,

0:53:290:53:32

nerves, it does get the better of you,

0:53:320:53:34

but this whole, like, experience has just made me grow as a person

0:53:340:53:38

because, yeah, I wouldn't have been able to do that a month ago.

0:53:380:53:43

-Aww, Bobby!

-Yeah, it's just given me the edge

0:53:430:53:46

and the bravery to go and do that.

0:53:460:53:49

-Bromley Massive.

-Bromley Massive.

0:53:490:53:50

Sending love.

0:53:500:53:52

Meet our boy from the Valleys, teenager Nicky Price,

0:53:560:53:59

who's hoping to swap the classroom for the stage.

0:53:590:54:02

-You still in school?

-Yeah, still in school. Well, in college now,

0:54:040:54:08

doing my A levels.

0:54:080:54:11

Oh!

0:54:110:54:13

So what do you think of the stage?

0:54:130:54:15

A bit nerve-racking.

0:54:150:54:16

-It's massive.

-Oh, big-time.

0:54:160:54:18

When Nicky decides to relax, it's playing on the Xbox.

0:54:230:54:28

He's always on that, till two or three in the morning, sometimes.

0:54:280:54:31

He's a typical teenage boy.

0:54:310:54:35

Nicky's singing all around the house and he gives me a headache.

0:54:350:54:41

Nicky loves being an uncle and he enjoys doing karaoke

0:54:410:54:44

with the girls when he can.

0:54:440:54:46

He's a funny uncle.

0:54:460:54:49

He tickles me.

0:54:490:54:51

Nicky can be a good uncle, but when he's had enough,

0:54:510:54:54

bye-bye!

You know what sold it for me as well? It wasn't just the singing.

0:59:040:59:07

It was you acted out and felt every word.

0:59:070:59:11

You absolutely hit the nail on the head.

0:59:110:59:13

Gary.

0:59:140:59:16

Well, we should remind ourselves what we're here for today.

0:59:160:59:19

This is going to be a stage show featuring the music of Take That.

0:59:190:59:22

We're going to be putting a band into this show

Uh, Mel, do you know what this means?

1:00:321:00:34

-They're on the social media.

-They're platforming.

1:00:341:00:38

And if you're not already, you can get involved as well

1:00:381:00:40

why not check out some backstage exclusives as well?

-Ooh!

-Exclusives.

-Exclusives.

1:00:471:00:50

So are you still in school?

1:00:551:00:56

I've left and I've started as a classic car restorator.

1:00:561:00:59

My two overall passions are cars and performing and it's always been

1:00:591:01:03

which one wins, so trying to balance the two up with each other,

1:01:031:01:08

but something like this could change my life.

1:01:081:01:10

Yeah, of course it can.

Nick? Nick!

1:01:131:01:15

-Go on, Nick.

-Good luck!

1:01:151:01:18

Nick is your typical Essex cheeky chappy.

1:01:241:01:27

The very first time I saw Nick, I said,

1:01:271:01:29

"That lad should be in a boy band."

1:01:291:01:31

He's got the floppy hair on top, held back by a hairband,

1:01:311:01:34

which we have a bit of fun with in the workshop.

1:01:341:01:36

He is a born performer, there's no two ways about it.

1:01:361:01:40

Nick would like the boy band lifestyle, 100%,

1:01:401:01:42

especially the girls that come with it.

1:01:421:01:45

Nick told me he's going to sing the whole thing to Dannii,

1:01:451:01:47

so he's going to try and win her over.

1:05:111:05:14

OK, let's go to Amber.

1:05:141:05:15

Uh, I thought that it was great.

1:05:161:05:18

I think that you did a really good job. The vocals could be stronger.

1:05:181:05:22

You definitely need to work on that. Performance - you have it.

1:05:221:05:25

Gary, you're nodding your head in agreement?

1:05:271:05:29

Is it Nick Carsberg or Nick Carlsberg?

1:05:291:05:33

Cos I reckon if Carlsberg made boy band members...

1:05:331:05:36

CHEERING

1:05:361:05:38

All right, let's find out how Nick's been scored.

1:05:431:05:47

Here we go.

1:05:541:05:55

Come on.

1:05:561:05:58

Come on.

1:06:021:06:04

14... Yes!

1:06:041:06:05

Any more?

1:06:061:06:08

Yes!

1:06:081:06:09

16!

1:06:091:06:10

You got through with one to spare, one to spare, well done, sir.

1:06:151:06:20

Congratulations.

1:06:201:06:21

Martin.

1:06:211:06:23

I was sitting here before you started

1:06:231:06:25

just hoping you were going to be good,

1:06:251:06:27

because I knew you had it, so I would love to see you in this show.

1:06:271:06:30

I think the girls would love you.

1:06:301:06:32

-You must be over the moon, Nick.

-Oh, amazing.

1:06:341:06:36

I'm so happy, thank you so much.

1:06:361:06:39

Let's hear it for Nick.

1:06:391:06:40

Yay!

1:06:401:06:41

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:06:411:06:43

-I'm seeing stars, man.

-Well done.

-What are you saying?

1:06:471:06:50

Our Let It Shine auditionees are hitting the stage with

1:06:521:06:54

a real range of experience and talents,

1:06:541:06:56

but our next hopeful, 25-year-old Wayne,

1:06:561:06:59

really is starting from scratch.

1:06:591:07:02

No-one's ever heard me sing. I don't sing in front of people.

1:07:021:07:04

You're just now starting?

1:07:041:07:06

The first time someone's heard me sing was my mum at a karaoke.

1:07:061:07:09

-Did your mum send you?

-Yeah, yeah.

1:07:091:07:11

It's funny, because when we first started in the band,

1:07:111:07:14

Rob's mum was influential and my mum pushed me forward as well.

1:07:141:07:17

Sometimes mums make the right decisions.

1:07:171:07:20

To be fair, I've got to thank her for this so far, she's been quality.

1:07:201:07:23

So when you go on that stage,

1:07:231:07:24

-you're going to be very nervous?

-Absolutely!

1:07:241:07:26

Listen, we'll be cheering you on from the side.

1:07:261:07:28

If at any point you need a little bit of encouragement...

1:07:281:07:30

-A little cheeky nod?

-We'll be like that.

1:07:301:07:32

We'll give you one of them from the side, all right?

1:07:321:07:35

CHEERING

1:07:411:07:43

-Hey, man, how are you doing?

-I'm good.

-What's your name?

1:07:521:07:55

-Wayne.

-And what do you do for a living?

-I work at a local campsite

1:07:551:07:58

-moving caravans. Whoo(!)

-LAUGHTER

1:07:581:08:01

-Moving caravans?

-Yeah, man.

1:08:011:08:04

- You got a caravan, Gary? - No!

1:08:041:08:06

LAUGHTER

1:08:061:08:08

-Not yet.

-I'm the man.

1:08:081:08:10

LAUGHTER

1:08:101:08:11

So what do your mates think about you being here today?

1:08:111:08:14

To be fair, no-one knows.

1:08:141:08:15

-You haven't told them?

-Only my mum and my missus,

1:08:151:08:18

-wherever they are, somewhere.

-THEY WHOOP

1:08:181:08:20

Only they know I'm here, so...

1:08:201:08:22

It's just a crazy, crazy experience.

1:08:241:08:26

Listen, I think you're going to be great, but just stand still.

1:08:261:08:29

I'm trying.

1:08:291:08:31

Stand still, breathe out, take a big breath,

1:08:311:08:35

relax your nerves

1:08:351:08:36

and give me your best song.

1:08:361:08:38

Let's do it.

1:08:381:08:40

# I got sunshine

1:08:561:09:00

# On a cloudy day

1:09:001:09:04

# When it's cold outside

1:09:061:09:10

# I've got the month of May

1:09:101:09:13

# Well, I guess you'd say

1:09:151:09:21

# What can make me feel this way?

1:09:211:09:26

# My girl

1:09:261:09:29

# Talking 'bout my girl

1:09:291:09:33

# I don't need no money

1:09:341:09:38

# All I need is my fame

1:09:381:09:42

# Well, I guess you'd say

1:09:431:09:49

# What can make me feel this way?

1:09:491:09:53

# My girl

1:09:531:09:57

# Talking 'bout my girl

1:09:571:10:00

# My girl. #

1:10:021:10:05

CHEERING

1:10:051:10:07

Wayne, everybody!

1:10:071:10:08

You did it, Wayne, you did it.

1:10:101:10:11

Well done!

1:10:111:10:13

Well done. Judges, please input your scores now.

1:10:131:10:17

Did you do karaoke before? Had you done anything before?

1:10:181:10:20

Yeah, I've only ever sung on karaoke in a pub

1:10:201:10:22

so this is like the first sober audience as well!

1:10:221:10:26

LAUGHTER

1:10:261:10:27

Not everyone, Wayne, not everyone.

1:10:271:10:30

I was watching the monitor backstage.

1:10:331:10:36

The size of these rocks on your ears, Wayne.

1:10:361:10:38

You moved a lot of caravans for those, I'll tell you that.

1:10:381:10:42

OK, Gary, what did you think?

1:10:421:10:45

Let me put two hats on here.

1:10:451:10:46

The first one - lovely personality, great interview at the start.

1:10:461:10:50

-You've actually not got a bad voice as well.

-Cheers, thank you.

1:10:501:10:53

Really good song choice for you.

1:10:531:10:54

Then I've got to put my other hat on -

1:10:541:10:56

we're going to go into theatres,

1:10:561:10:59

we're going to put a boy band together.

1:10:591:11:01

For some reason, I just don't see you in this show, I just don't.

1:11:011:11:04

-AUDIENCE:

-Aww!

-This is the audition process right here.

1:11:041:11:09

If you really want to do this as a career,

1:11:091:11:11

you're going to go to some auditions

1:11:111:11:13

and you're just not right, not because you weren't good enough,

1:11:131:11:15

it's just that they're looking for something different

1:11:151:11:18

and for me right now, for this show, in my head,

1:11:181:11:20

you're just not quite right.

1:11:201:11:22

-AUDIENCE:

-Aww!

-It's cool.

-All right.

1:11:221:11:24

Let's go to Martin.

1:11:241:11:26

I just didn't think you connected with the audience very much.

1:11:261:11:29

You know when you see an action movie, right?

1:11:291:11:33

And you've got the guy throwing the punch,

1:11:331:11:35

it's not the guy that throws the punch

1:11:351:11:37

that makes the fight look good.

1:11:371:11:39

-It's the guy that sells it.

-Yeah.

1:11:391:11:41

You have to have both things working at the same time

1:11:411:11:44

for it all to happen.

1:11:441:11:46

Not sure I followed that, but...

1:11:461:11:48

LAUGHTER

1:11:481:11:50

When I watch it back, I'll get it when I watch it back.

1:11:511:11:54

APPLAUSE

1:11:541:11:57

Let's find out how Wayne has been scored.

1:11:571:12:00

Oh!

1:12:161:12:17

AUDIENCE GROANS

1:12:171:12:19

11 stars.

1:12:201:12:23

11.

1:12:231:12:24

It's not too bad, you've got three threes there.

1:12:241:12:27

Let's find out what Amber wanted to say about your performance.

1:12:301:12:33

I loved your voice.

1:12:331:12:35

There's kind of like a blues type of...little bit of soul

1:12:351:12:40

in your voice. I just don't think you knew what to do with it.

1:12:401:12:44

-AUDIENCE:

-Aww!

-Dannii, I think Wayne might be

1:12:441:12:47

the rawest talent we've seen on this stage.

1:12:471:12:50

What would you tell him to do from this point?

1:12:501:12:52

You've got that soul voice, you've got an amazing tone,

1:12:521:12:56

and you need to work on the presentation of it,

1:12:561:12:59

-the stage presentation.

-Yeah.

1:12:591:13:01

Wayne, are you taking this whole experience as an encouraging thing?

1:13:011:13:05

Oh, yeah, definitely, this is just a stepping stone.

1:13:051:13:08

Yeah. No, cos you're good.

1:13:081:13:10

They're telling you you're good.

1:13:101:13:12

You're good. Ladies and gentlemen, let's hear it for Wayne!

1:13:121:13:16

CHEERING Great job, seriously.

1:13:161:13:18

Well done.

1:13:181:13:20

Well done, mate.

1:13:241:13:25

You were brilliant, well done.

1:13:251:13:27

You did it. That's the hardest bit, getting there the first time.

1:13:271:13:30

-Well done, well done.

-Cheers.

1:13:301:13:31

Really, really good. I mean, you impressed me.

1:13:311:13:34

I never expected that voice to come out.

1:13:341:13:37

Backstage, most of the boys are now able to relax,

1:13:401:13:42

but our last performer, 30-year-old Jason,

1:13:421:13:45

has his professional reputation on the line

1:13:451:13:48

and he's been waiting all day to be called.

1:13:481:13:50

How are your nerves?

1:13:501:13:51

-All over the place.

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

1:13:511:13:53

To be the best that I can possibly...

1:13:531:13:56

Yeah, I know, it's just...

1:13:561:13:58

Can I have Jason, please?

1:13:581:14:00

CHEERING

1:14:121:14:15

Hi!

1:14:221:14:24

-Hello!

-How are you?

-I'm very well, thank you.

1:14:241:14:26

-What's your name?

-I'm Jason, I'm 30 and I'm from Woburn.

1:14:261:14:30

Hi, Jason.

1:14:301:14:32

You feeling good, are you nervous?

1:14:321:14:34

-Very nervous.

-Just a little bit, you need to shake...

1:14:341:14:36

Yeah...

1:14:361:14:37

So what do you do for a living?

1:14:371:14:39

I'm currently in Thriller Live in the West End.

1:14:391:14:41

WHOOPING

1:14:411:14:43

Wow.

1:14:431:14:45

-Eight shows a week?

-Eight shows a week.

1:14:451:14:47

-Dance as well?

-Yes.

1:14:471:14:48

-Injuries?

-Yep.

-Yeah, respect to you.

1:14:481:14:51

What made you come to this audition?

1:14:511:14:53

Well, I listen to a lot of pop music and I love being on the stage

1:14:531:14:57

and I love being in musicals,

1:14:571:14:59

so to have that all combine into one for me is the perfect dream.

1:14:591:15:03

So do you have anyone here with you today?

1:15:031:15:05

Sadly I don't.

1:15:051:15:07

-AUDIENCE:

-Awww!

1:15:071:15:09

I wanted to keep it a surprise for all my family and friends

1:15:091:15:11

-back at home.

-Oh, you didn't want anyone to come here with you?

1:15:111:15:15

If I see them in the audience,

1:15:151:15:16

I'd probably get really nervous and I would just feel like, you know...

1:15:161:15:19

-All right, we're ready for you. Good luck.

-Thank you very much.

1:15:191:15:23

# I know

1:15:381:15:41

# That when you look at me

1:15:411:15:44

# There's so much

1:15:441:15:47

# That you just don't see

1:15:471:15:50

# But now

1:15:501:15:53

# I come home and turn the key

1:15:531:15:56

# There's nobody there

1:15:561:15:59

# No-one cares for me

1:15:591:16:03

# Oh-oh

1:16:031:16:04

# What's the sense of trying hard to find your dreams

1:16:041:16:09

# Without someone to share it with

1:16:091:16:13

# Tell me what does it mean?

1:16:131:16:15

# Oh, I wanna run to you, ooh

1:16:151:16:21

# I wanna run to you, ooh

1:16:211:16:28

# Won't you hold me in your arms

1:16:281:16:31

# And keep me safe from harm?

1:16:311:16:34

# I wanna run to you

1:16:341:16:38

# Ooh

1:16:381:16:40

# But if I come to you

1:16:401:16:44

# Ooh

1:16:441:16:47

# Tell me, will you stay

1:16:471:16:50

# Or will you run away?

1:16:501:16:59

# Run away?

1:16:591:17:06

# Tell me, will you stay

1:17:061:17:10

# Or will you run

1:17:101:17:14

# Away? #

1:17:141:17:17

CHEERING

1:17:171:17:20

Jason, everybody!

1:17:251:17:28

Wrap it up, wrap it up!

1:17:321:17:34

That's for you, you're that good.

1:17:401:17:42

I love that the judges couldn't wait to the end to stand up to clap.

1:17:451:17:48

No-one could. Amber.

1:17:481:17:50

Jason, that was just...

1:17:501:17:55

That was beautiful.

1:17:551:17:57

CHEERING

1:17:571:17:58

It was.

1:17:581:18:00

I love Whitney Houston

1:18:001:18:02

and when people sing her songs,

1:18:021:18:04

I turn my nose up, but you gave it so much justice

1:18:041:18:09

and so much passion and it sounded incredible.

1:18:091:18:14

-CHEERING

-Thank you. Thank you very much.

1:18:141:18:17

Martin, you were on your feet as well.

1:18:171:18:19

It was amazing, wasn't it?

1:18:191:18:21

There's no other word for it.

1:18:211:18:23

It was just amazing and do you know what's so weird

1:18:231:18:26

about this whole experience?

1:18:261:18:28

When Gary asked me along and said,

1:18:281:18:30

"Will you be part of the judging panel?"

1:18:301:18:32

I said, "Yeah, OK, we'll find the five best boys,"

1:18:321:18:34

it is really difficult,

1:18:341:18:36

because we have seen some incredible talent here tonight.

1:18:361:18:39

You top it.

1:18:391:18:40

CHEERING

1:18:401:18:42

All right.

1:18:441:18:46

I don't want to pre-empt anything, Jason, but it's looking good.

1:18:491:18:52

LAUGHTER

1:18:521:18:54

Can you imagine if you didn't get through now?

1:18:551:18:58

LAUGHTER

1:18:581:19:00

Awkward!

1:19:011:19:02

All right, let's do it, let's see how well Jason has been scored.

1:19:021:19:06

OK, what have we got, what have we got, what have we got?

1:19:151:19:18

All right!

1:19:181:19:20

Oh, we're going to get there.

1:19:221:19:24

Yes! CHEERING

1:19:251:19:26

There's more, there's more, there's got to be more.

1:19:261:19:28

Yes!

1:19:281:19:29

Yes!

1:19:291:19:31

Here we go!

1:19:311:19:32

What have we got?

1:19:321:19:33

Yeah!

1:19:331:19:35

CHEERING

1:19:351:19:37

Wow! Enjoy that! Enjoy it!

1:19:371:19:40

You were amazing!

1:19:471:19:50

Well done, sir, well done.

1:19:501:19:51

Well done.

1:19:551:19:56

SPEECH MUFFLED BY CHEERING

1:19:561:19:58

So deserved. What do you want to say, Dannii?

1:20:061:20:10

I wasn't thinking of the original artist

1:20:101:20:12

when you were singing that song.

1:20:121:20:14

I was just thinking of your performance

1:20:141:20:17

and that is the highest compliment I could ever give you.

1:20:171:20:20

The final word to Gary.

1:20:201:20:23

So much more than just singing a song -

1:20:231:20:26

you've totally moved every single person in this room

1:20:261:20:30

and that's why I love music so much.

1:20:301:20:33

Congratulations to you.

1:20:331:20:35

Jason, I know it's hard, but how are you feeling right now?

1:20:351:20:38

I feel like I'm going to wake up and have to do it all over again,

1:20:381:20:42

it doesn't feel real and this is...

1:20:421:20:44

-I don't know what to say, I'm so...!

-CHEERING

1:20:441:20:48

Jason, everybody!

1:20:481:20:50

We'll see you next time. Take care.

1:20:501:20:52

-Yeah!

-Yeah!

1:20:561:20:58

Well done, sir, brilliant! That was incredible.

1:20:581:21:01

-Well done, mate.
