This is Let It Shine.

Grab a cuppa and settle back.

0:00:050:00:07

-What are we watching?!

-Well, I'll tell you, Gary.

0:00:070:00:10

As seen on our stage last week,

0:00:100:00:12

we've opened our audition doors to people from all over the UK.

0:00:120:00:15

-I'm from East London.

-County Tyrone.

-Neath in South Wales.

0:00:150:00:18

From stage show pros...

0:00:180:00:20

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

0:00:200:00:22

CHEERING

0:00:220:00:24

-..to regular Joes.

-I'm a maintenance engineer.

0:00:240:00:27

I'm currently restoring classic cars.

0:00:270:00:29

I work at a local campsite... hoovering caravans.

0:00:290:00:32

LAUGHTER

0:00:320:00:33

-Got a caravan, Gary?

-Not yet.

0:00:330:00:35

They're all out to prove they've got what it takes

0:00:380:00:40

to play a member of a boy band in a new musical

0:00:400:00:42

featuring the songs of one of Britain's best-loved bands.

0:00:420:00:45

Take That. Take That... Is that how you do it?

0:00:450:00:48

-It's a new one. We've never done that.

-OK!

0:00:480:00:50

After our boys perform,

0:00:500:00:53

they'll be scored out of five by each of our judges.

0:00:530:00:56

So I guess it's like the old five-star review.

0:00:560:00:59

You open the newspaper and you're like...

0:00:590:01:00

-SHE GASPS

-"What is it?"

0:01:000:01:02

To make it through to the next stage,

0:01:020:01:04

they need to light up at least 15 stars.

0:01:040:01:07

I am ready to be knocked out today.

0:01:070:01:09

Bring on the boys!

0:01:090:01:11

Hello, and welcome to Let It Shine.

0:01:380:01:42

CHEERING

0:01:420:01:44

-The show where it's all about the stars.

-Oh, yes, it is.

0:01:440:01:47

These stars, that is.

0:01:470:01:48

Tonight, we've got another batch of boys

0:01:480:01:51

hoping to impress our judges enough

0:01:510:01:53

to light up at least 15 of these things.

0:01:530:01:55

-Ooh, it's very tense up here.

-Have we? Have we? Have we?

0:01:550:01:58

CHEERING

0:01:580:01:59

So, about those judges.

0:01:590:02:01

If you hadn't noticed, we've got Gary Barlow.

0:02:010:02:03

Not that I'm bothered.

0:02:030:02:05

SHE SQUEALS

0:02:050:02:08

He's joined on the panel by these three beauties.

0:02:080:02:11

Dannii Minogue!

0:02:110:02:13

Dannii, she has a wealth of experience,

0:02:130:02:15

having been in musicals, having been a pop artist.

0:02:150:02:18

If she doesn't know what talent is, I don't know who does.

0:02:180:02:20

Amber Riley!

0:02:200:02:22

She's had many years' experience on a massive TV show.

0:02:240:02:27

She is a star in the West End.

0:02:270:02:29

Martin Kemp.

0:02:290:02:31

Martin was in the boy band of my generation when I was a teenager,

0:02:310:02:35

so his insight is fantastic.

0:02:350:02:37

-Totally played that cool, right?

-Totally(!)

0:02:390:02:42

So, judges - check.

0:02:430:02:46

Pumped-up Manchester audience with lighty-uppy wristbandy things -

0:02:460:02:49

check.

0:02:490:02:50

All we need now are some auditionees.

0:02:500:02:53

Luckily, Graham, our backstage common room is brimming with them.

0:02:530:02:57

-How are you feeling?

-A bit nervous, me.

0:03:050:03:08

-Are you?

-Yeah.

0:03:080:03:09

It's a great panel. They're all lovely, by the way.

0:03:090:03:12

-Little bit tough sometimes.

-Mm.

-But always constructive.

-Yeah.

0:03:120:03:16

-WOMAN:

-Can I have Jonnie Halliwell to the stage, please?

0:03:160:03:19

CHEERING

0:03:190:03:22

-Well, good, let's get on with it.

-Let's go.

0:03:240:03:27

CHEERING

0:03:270:03:29

Jonnie's always very entertaining.

0:03:320:03:34

Jonathan's a bit of a comedian, yes. He always likes a bit of fun.

0:03:340:03:39

When he were a kid, he used to like Ken Dodd.

0:03:390:03:42

We watched An Audience With Ken Dodd, that was it.

0:03:420:03:45

-Over and over again.

-Hooked, over and over again.

0:03:450:03:47

He's just a normal lad. He likes his football.

0:03:470:03:50

He's got another side where he goes to performing

0:03:500:03:54

and he loves it.

0:03:540:03:56

He's then a performer.

0:03:560:03:57

He's a typical Yorkshire lad.

0:03:570:03:59

And he's got a dream and he will get it.

0:04:000:04:04

Enjoy yourself and do your best.

0:04:040:04:06

CHEERING

0:04:100:04:12

-Nice entrance.

-Hello.

0:04:180:04:20

-How are you doing? Are you all right?

-Yeah.

0:04:200:04:22

-Having a good day?

-Yeah.

-LAUGHTER

0:04:220:04:25

-What's your name?

-Jonnie. I'm 25, from Rotherham.

0:04:250:04:29

CHEERING

0:04:290:04:31

And why this musical?

0:04:310:04:34

I just think I've got maybe something to give to it.

0:04:340:04:37

And I've been to a lot of auditions and stuff

0:04:370:04:40

and I just think it would be a good opportunity.

0:04:400:04:43

Have you done much performing in the past?

0:04:430:04:45

Yes, I was in White Christmas in the West End. Um...

0:04:450:04:50

But it's a difficult game, isn't it,

0:04:500:04:52

like, to stay as a regular entertainer?

0:04:520:04:55

So, you know, I've been jobbing around for auditions and stuff

0:04:550:04:58

-and just keep knocking on that door.

-Yeah.

0:04:580:05:00

And, hopefully, I can, you know, have a platform to perform on.

0:05:000:05:04

CHEERING

0:05:040:05:06

What do you do for a living?

0:05:080:05:10

Strawberries and cream, living the dream.

0:05:100:05:13

I sell ice creams.

0:05:130:05:15

CHEERING

0:05:150:05:17

Now, hang on a minute,

0:05:180:05:20

because there's a few layers of these ice creams.

0:05:200:05:22

-Are you Mr Whippy or not?

-No.

0:05:220:05:24

-No.

-Haagen-Dazs.

-Oh, hang on!

0:05:240:05:27

-You're the posh one!

-Hey!

0:05:270:05:30

-Posh.

-Hey, he's the posh one, him.

-Posh ice cream.

-Yeah.

0:05:300:05:32

-Do you have flakes or not?

-No, tubs.

0:05:320:05:35

-Let's see what you do, man, the stage is yours.

-Thank you.

0:05:390:05:42

CHEERING

0:05:420:05:44

Come on, be good, please.

CHEERING

0:06:570:06:59

Judges, have you all entered your scores?

0:07:110:07:14

OK. You must have loved that. That was great.

0:07:140:07:16

-That was great.

-Yeah, it was.

0:07:160:07:18

-Even you thought it was good.

-Yeah!

-Yeah! They all loved it.

0:07:180:07:21

-Dannii Minogue, what did you think?

-Yes.

0:07:210:07:24

Holy Moley!

0:07:240:07:27

CHEERING

0:07:270:07:29

That was so fine.

0:07:310:07:33

That was so fine in every direction.

0:07:330:07:37

Performance, energy, singing.

0:07:370:07:39

How are you still selling ice cream?!

0:07:390:07:42

Martin, what have you got to say?

0:07:470:07:49

You blew the roof off the house, man.

0:07:490:07:51

That is how you do an audition.

0:07:510:07:54

You came out, people fell in love with you,

0:07:540:07:57

fell in love with your smile as soon as you appeared,

0:07:570:07:59

then we fell in love with your personality

0:07:590:08:02

and then we fell in love with your performance.

0:08:020:08:04

It was absolutely on the money and you should be in the band.

0:08:040:08:08

CHEERING All right.

0:08:080:08:10

It's looking good. It's looking good. Brace yourself.

0:08:100:08:14

Here we go. 15 is the magic number.

0:08:140:08:16

That's number 15, it's got to light up.

0:08:160:08:18

Let's find out how Jonnie has been scored.

0:08:180:08:21

Here we go.

0:08:310:08:33

Come on.

0:08:330:08:34

Here we go.

0:08:360:08:37

15. CHEERING

0:08:410:08:43

Some more!

0:08:430:08:45

17.

0:08:450:08:46

18.

0:08:460:08:48

19. Will he? Will he?

0:08:480:08:49

Yes!

0:08:490:08:51

CHEERING

0:08:510:08:52

Wow!

0:08:540:08:55

Good job. Well done. Well done.

0:09:060:09:08

You are through to the next stage of the competition.

0:09:080:09:11

Amber, what have you got to say to Jonnie?

0:09:110:09:14

You know, when you come out on stage and you give it your all,

0:09:140:09:17

this is what happens.

0:09:170:09:18

You are appreciated, and we appreciate what you did here today.

0:09:180:09:21

You were great.

0:09:210:09:23

And you're a star.

0:09:230:09:25

20 stars! You're 20 stars.

0:09:250:09:27

A final word to Gary Barlow.

0:09:270:09:30

Well, listen, no talent show we've ever seen

0:09:300:09:33

is asking for as much as we need.

0:09:330:09:35

We need people to sing, act, dance, be in a band,

0:09:350:09:40

be lovable, make us sing, make us cry,

0:09:400:09:43

make us have a great night out.

0:09:430:09:45

You have got it all, my friend. Well done.

0:09:450:09:49

CHEERING

0:09:490:09:50

Does...?

0:09:520:09:53

When you're there selling your ice creams during the interval,

0:09:530:09:56

I mean, you must kind of lose...

0:09:560:09:57

you must kind of lose the will to live sometimes.

0:09:570:10:00

Have you ever thought about giving it up?

0:10:000:10:02

Well, I just do it in between, cos I want to keep, you know...

0:10:020:10:05

-Yeah, yeah.

-..improving but, yeah, it is hard.

0:10:050:10:07

Like, the curtain goes down for the interval

0:10:070:10:09

and 1,000 people come for a... Cookies & Cream.

0:10:090:10:13

And I just want to be up there and not going, "£3, please."

0:10:130:10:16

Well, Jonnie, it was brilliant.

0:10:190:10:21

We loved you. We'll see him again. It's Jonnie!

0:10:210:10:25

CHEERING Well done. Fantastic. Well done.

0:10:250:10:27

Oh, my goodness.

0:10:330:10:35

Cheeky, funny, crazy, sexy, cool.

0:10:350:10:37

The audience are going to come out of the theatre

0:10:370:10:39

-and go straight to the stage door...

-Stage door.

-..to see him.

0:10:390:10:42

Auditions have got off to a great start.

0:10:420:10:45

In the common room, Gary's Take That band mates Howard And Mark

0:10:470:10:50

are giving the rest of the boys a bit of a pep talk.

0:10:500:10:53

Are you all giving each other lots of encouragement?

0:10:530:10:56

Because I think it's super important,

0:10:560:10:58

because you've got to think that

0:10:580:11:00

there could be two of you in this room...

0:11:000:11:02

-There could be five of you...

-..or even five.

0:11:020:11:04

You might be working together,

0:11:040:11:06

you might be working together for a full year,

0:11:060:11:08

so you've got to be able to have that bond

0:11:080:11:11

and give each other encouragement.

0:11:110:11:12

CHATTER

0:11:120:11:14

20 stars!

0:11:140:11:16

-20 stars!

-CHEERING

0:11:160:11:18

First to congratulate Jonnie

0:11:180:11:20

is fellow musical theatre performer Dylan.

0:11:200:11:23

Yeah, it was great.

0:11:230:11:25

But with a real job in a real show on offer,

0:11:280:11:30

the nerves are starting to show.

0:11:300:11:32

CHEERING

0:11:380:11:40

Well, hello!

0:11:470:11:48

-Hiya.

-Hi.

0:11:480:11:50

-Whew!

-What's your name?

0:11:500:11:52

Hiya. My name is Dylan, I'm 20

0:11:520:11:55

and I'm from Derry in Northern Ireland.

0:11:550:11:57

CHEERING

0:11:570:11:59

OK, the first big question.

0:12:010:12:03

Are you prepared for all of this screaming?

0:12:030:12:06

CHEERING

0:12:060:12:09

Stop, you guys are making him blush. He's turning red.

0:12:090:12:11

-Um...I thought I was, and then...

-LAUGHTER

0:12:110:12:16

So, do you perform a lot?

0:12:160:12:18

Yeah, I've been onstage since I was three.

0:12:180:12:20

I come from quite a theatrical background.

0:12:200:12:22

I just finished Once, the musical, in Dublin...

0:12:220:12:25

-Wow.

-..about two weeks ago.

0:12:250:12:27

So, why do you want to be in this musical?

0:12:290:12:32

I think this musical

0:12:320:12:34

is completely different to anything that's on at the minute

0:12:340:12:37

or has been on recently,

0:12:370:12:38

and we're not all fighting for one place,

0:12:380:12:40

we're fighting for five spots to join as a team,

0:12:400:12:44

and I think that's really special.

0:12:440:12:45

CHEERING

0:12:450:12:47

So, you would be perfectly fine

0:12:480:12:52

with being in close quarters with four other guys

0:12:520:12:55

on the road for 12 months?

0:12:550:12:59

It's better than sitting there on your own, isn't it?

0:12:590:13:01

LAUGHTER

0:13:010:13:02

So, are you ready to sing for us?

0:13:060:13:07

I think so, yeah.

0:13:070:13:09

-Good luck.

-Thanks.

CHEERING

0:15:080:15:10

That is Dylan, everybody.

0:15:140:15:16

Wow. Judges, put in your scores, please.

0:15:220:15:26

Great job, Dylan.

0:15:260:15:27

I saw you come out with a guitar, I was not expecting Katy Perry.

0:15:270:15:30

I wasn't. OK, the hard bit's over.

0:15:300:15:32

Now you just have to stand and listen, Dylan.

0:15:320:15:34

All right... Amber.

0:15:340:15:36

It was so good. It really was.

0:15:360:15:39

I...

0:15:390:15:41

I really enjoyed

0:15:410:15:43

how you kind of showed us a little bit of everything.

0:15:430:15:45

You had it slowed down in the beginning

0:15:450:15:48

and then you got more excited

0:15:480:15:51

and then the end, all of us were clapping with you.

0:15:510:15:53

It was an amazing performance.

0:15:530:15:55

APPLAUSE

0:15:550:15:57

Dannii, I saw you smiling while he was performing. You liked it?

0:15:580:16:02

There was something missing. I don't know what it is.

0:16:020:16:06

I think that it was nerves, which shows everyone here,

0:16:060:16:10

even if you've worked in the theatre,

0:16:100:16:12

how nerve-racking it is, and often more

0:16:120:16:15

because you've had some success at what you're doing,

0:16:150:16:18

so there's something to risk.

0:16:180:16:20

I feel like if I saw you again,

0:16:200:16:23

you would have shaken off a few of those nerves.

0:16:230:16:26

It was definitely... The reaction just took me by surprise.

0:16:260:16:29

-AUDIENCE:

-Aww!

0:16:290:16:30

Thank you.

0:16:300:16:32

OK, we're going to go to the scoring next.

0:16:320:16:34

As you know, each judge has five stars to award.

0:16:340:16:38

You could get a maximum of 20 stars,

0:16:380:16:41

but you have to get a minimum of 15 to light up

0:16:410:16:43

if you're going through to the next stage.

0:16:430:16:45

Let's find out how Dylan has been scored.

0:16:450:16:48

OK.

0:16:590:17:00

Yes! Come on!

0:17:080:17:10

Look who you've got to thank down there.

0:17:200:17:22

Mr Martin Kemp, five out of five.

0:17:220:17:24

He came out here and he absolutely rocked this audition.

0:17:280:17:31

That is how you do an audition.

0:17:310:17:33

You know you said earlier that the audience took you by surprise?

0:17:330:17:36

But you played with it. You went with it.

0:17:360:17:38

You felt their energy, you took it on that stage

0:17:380:17:41

and you made everybody enjoy it.

0:17:410:17:43

-That's a great audition.

-CHEERING

0:17:430:17:46

A good score from Gary.

0:17:480:17:50

What would you advise Dylan to work on before we see him again?

0:17:500:17:52

My points were all based on potential

0:17:520:17:55

rather than what I saw today,

0:17:550:17:56

because it was interesting that you had so much experience on a stage

0:17:560:18:00

and you really let the nerves get to you.

0:18:000:18:02

-Yeah.

-There were quite a lot of flat notes,

0:18:020:18:04

a few wrong notes on the guitar,

0:18:040:18:06

and I want you to get rid of all that for the next time we see you.

0:18:060:18:10

-Definitely.

-Why do you think the nerves hit you so hard today,

0:18:100:18:13

you know, given you've got all that experience?

0:18:130:18:15

Going out and doing the same thing every night for a week,

0:18:150:18:19

you kind of get used to it.

0:18:190:18:21

It never gets boring, but you do get used to the feeling,

0:18:210:18:24

and I've lost that feeling for a while,

0:18:240:18:26

and coming here and hearing that just blew me away.

0:18:260:18:29

CHEERING Well, good luck to you, Dylan.

0:18:290:18:32

We'll see you again. It's Dylan, everybody!

0:18:320:18:35

CHEERING They love you. They love you.

0:18:350:18:37

He can't really sing, but he looked too good.

0:18:410:18:44

His potential is great, I think. I really do.

0:18:440:18:47

I was actually thinking of voting a three, but I thought,

0:18:470:18:49

"If I don't vote four, I've got a feeling he's going to go home..."

0:18:490:18:52

That's why I gave the five, so we didn't lose him.

0:18:520:18:54

-That's it, yeah.

-Saved by the boys.

0:18:540:18:56

-It's a good job we're here.

-Yeah.

0:18:560:18:58

Yeah!

0:18:580:18:59

Yeah!

0:18:590:19:00

Well done, Dylan.

0:19:010:19:03

-Good crowd, eh? Good crowd?

-Lads, they are unreal.

0:19:030:19:07

It's deafening, though, isn't it? You can't...

0:19:070:19:10

So loud. Just shouting and screaming at me.

0:19:100:19:12

-Any underwear thrown?

-Loads!

-Loads!

0:19:120:19:15

If they end up as one of the band members in the musical,

0:19:170:19:19

these boys better get used to screaming fans.

0:19:190:19:22

# Hey! #

0:19:230:19:24

At this stage, the boys are all performing alone.

0:19:240:19:27

But in later stages,

0:19:270:19:28

they'll be performing with some top-class talent

0:19:280:19:31

to show they can work together in a group.

0:19:310:19:33

Yeah!

0:19:330:19:35

Being in a band is extremely collaborative.

0:19:350:19:39

They have to really get to know each other,

0:19:390:19:42

each other's strengths and weaknesses,

0:19:420:19:44

and find what that glue is between them

0:19:440:19:47

that really makes them strong.

0:19:470:19:50

They're going to have to find their chemistry,

0:19:500:19:52

they're going to have to find how each person works.

0:19:520:19:55

When you're living in each other's pockets,

0:19:550:19:58

being in a band, it is hard.

0:19:580:19:59

The pressure builds up. You have to accept that.

0:19:590:20:02

In my band, it was me and my brother.

0:20:020:20:04

Gary and I would walk off into another room,

0:20:040:20:05

have a huge argument.

0:20:050:20:07

Because we were brothers, we would forget about it straightaway.

0:20:070:20:10

I've always loved growing up

0:20:100:20:12

having a sister who also is working in the entertainment industry.

0:20:120:20:16

There's so many times that we can bounce stuff off each other.

0:20:160:20:20

You're in a group because together, you're the full package,

0:20:200:20:23

and I can't tell you how it feels to walk out to a performance

0:20:230:20:29

stood shoulder to shoulder with other people.

0:20:290:20:32

It's a brilliant experience.

0:20:320:20:34

It's a confidence that I never have when I'm performing by myself.

0:20:340:20:37

-Excited to meet Gaz, aren't you?

-"Ooh, Gary!"

-"Gary!"

0:20:390:20:43

-How old are you?

-16.

-16!

-16, yeah.

0:20:430:20:46

-That's craziness.

-I know, yeah.

-16.

0:20:460:20:48

-How old are you?

-35.

0:20:480:20:50

Don't laugh! Old enough to be your dad.

0:20:500:20:53

Definitely.

0:20:530:20:55

Next to audition for a role in the boy band is Lee.

0:20:570:21:00

CHEERING

0:21:060:21:08

-Hi there. What's your name, please?

-My name's Lee.

0:21:130:21:16

And I'm from Bristol.

0:21:160:21:18

I'm 35.

0:21:180:21:20

-35.

-Old. Old.

-Bit of a...

0:21:200:21:22

-APPLAUSE

-Don't clap for 35!

0:21:220:21:25

Lee, you're never too old, mate. Never too old.

0:21:250:21:28

What do you do for a living, Lee?

0:21:280:21:30

So, during the day, I work for a charity.

0:21:300:21:32

We support people with learning disabilities,

0:21:320:21:34

mental health issues and dementia.

0:21:340:21:36

-And during the night...

-CHEERING

0:21:360:21:39

-I've got two jobs.

-OK.

0:21:390:21:40

And during the night,

0:21:400:21:41

-I perform a tribute to the music of Take That.

-You don't?!

0:21:410:21:45

CHEERING

0:21:450:21:48

Oh, wow.

0:21:480:21:49

You don't even have to say which one you are.

0:21:490:21:52

Do you know what? Robbie's going to go mad.

0:21:540:21:57

I don't play Gary, if that makes sense. I'm myself.

0:21:590:22:02

But I do do a Gary Barlow impression.

0:22:020:22:04

-Now, I just wondered...

-AUDIENCE:

-Ohh!

0:22:040:22:06

-I know, I know.

-Be careful. This is my area.

0:22:060:22:09

-I know.

-All right?

0:22:090:22:11

If I do it, Gary, will you do it as well after?

0:22:110:22:14

Probably not, but carry on.

0:22:140:22:15

Right, are you ready?

0:22:170:22:18

-AS GARY:

-Ohh, they do a lovely sausage roll.

0:22:180:22:21

LAUGHTER

0:22:210:22:23

Thank you! Thank you!

0:22:230:22:26

Thanks, mate.

0:22:260:22:27

-I'm just looking for the zero button.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:22:270:22:31

-The one that opens the trapdoor as well.

-Yeah!

0:22:310:22:34

Lee, there obviously is a serious side to this.

0:22:350:22:38

Are you ready to perform for us?

0:22:380:22:40

-Yes, let's do this.

-Fantastic. Good luck to you.

0:22:400:22:42

MUSIC: The Power Of Love

0:22:550:22:57

# The power of love is a curious thing

0:22:590:23:02

# Make a-one man weep Make another man sing

0:23:030:23:06

# Change that heart to a little white dove

0:23:070:23:11

# More than a feeling

0:23:110:23:13

# That's the power of love

0:23:130:23:15

# That's the power of love

0:23:180:23:20

# They say that all in love is fair

0:23:240:23:28

# Yeah, but you don't care

0:23:280:23:31

# But you know what to do

0:23:320:23:34

# When it gets hold of you

0:23:360:23:39

# And with a little help from above

0:23:400:23:44

# You feel the power of love

0:23:440:23:48

# You feel the power of love

0:23:480:23:51

# Can you feel it?

0:23:520:23:53

# Mm-mmm

0:23:550:23:56

# Don't take money

0:23:580:24:00

# Don't take fame

0:24:000:24:02

# Don't need no credit card to ride this train

0:24:020:24:06

# It's strong and it's sudden

0:24:060:24:08

# And it's cruel sometimes

0:24:080:24:10

# You won't feel nothing till you feel

0:24:100:24:14

# You feel the power

0:24:140:24:16

# That's the power of love

0:24:160:24:19

# That's the power

0:24:190:24:20

# That's the power of love. #

0:24:200:24:23

CHEERING

0:24:230:24:25

Well done. Lee, everybody.

0:24:270:24:29

-All right?

-Very nice to meet you.

0:24:290:24:31

Right, let's go to the judges.

0:24:310:24:33

Now, Dannii, at the start of the song,

0:24:330:24:35

I saw you put your head in your hands,

0:24:350:24:37

but then I feel he maybe won you over as it went along?

0:24:370:24:39

I've never seen an air grab, fist pump AND a skip.

0:24:390:24:43

When you watch it back, there's a little...skip.

0:24:430:24:46

That was not choreographed. That was all me.

0:24:460:24:49

You're funny. You are definitely funny.

0:24:510:24:53

Let's go to Amber. What did you think?

0:24:530:24:55

Well, I mean, there's no doubt that you have a great personality

0:24:550:24:58

and you're fun and people like you, they've been laughing,

0:24:580:25:00

but at the end of the day,

0:25:000:25:02

the performance has to be put into perspective,

0:25:020:25:05

and I'm not sure that I see you for this,

0:25:050:25:09

but I do think that you have a great voice.

0:25:090:25:11

-I wish you well, Lee.

-Thank you.

-Here we go.

0:25:140:25:16

Let's find out how Lee has been scored.

0:25:160:25:18

Oh!

0:25:330:25:35

Wow.

0:25:350:25:36

Just eight stars.

0:25:390:25:41

That seems harsh to me, Gary, because Lee is clearly talented.

0:25:410:25:45

You know what?

0:25:450:25:46

There comes a point for us as judges where we have to consider relevance,

0:25:460:25:50

and it's no use just being a good singer and a good performer

0:25:500:25:53

if you're not relevant for the part you're here for.

0:25:530:25:56

This is to audition for a part in a boy band in a musical,

0:25:560:26:00

and at this moment, I just can't see you in that band,

0:26:000:26:03

so I have to vote based on relevance rather than what I've just seen.

0:26:030:26:06

Martin, what would you say in terms of encouragement for Lee?

0:26:060:26:09

For encouragement? You've got a really nice voice.

0:26:090:26:12

It's nice and smooth.

0:26:120:26:13

Like Gary, I don't think you're right for the part.

0:26:130:26:15

But, Lee, they are saying you've got a great voice,

0:26:150:26:18

so what would you say to the judges' comments?

0:26:180:26:20

I'm 35. I was not expecting to get this far, let alone meet you guys.

0:26:200:26:25

Will you continue to perform in the Take That tribute...?

0:26:250:26:27

Yeah, I love singing Take That songs,

0:26:270:26:29

and I know people love hearing them, so...

0:26:290:26:31

CHEERING

0:26:310:26:32

Well, look, thanks for being part of the process.

0:26:320:26:34

Ladies and gentlemen, Lee. CHEERING

0:26:340:26:37

He might get some comedy gigs out of it.

0:26:390:26:41

He'll get a lot of comedy, he's very good.

0:26:410:26:43

I wonder if he realises he's really good at that.

0:26:430:26:45

That's what he should be doing - comedy with the singing in it.

0:26:450:26:48

-It was a nice voice.

-It wasn't bad at all, was it?

-Yeah.

0:26:480:26:51

We absolutely score on what we think that person is worth.

0:26:520:26:56

# Dear darlin'

0:26:560:26:59

# Please excuse my writing... #

0:26:590:27:02

Ohh!

0:27:020:27:05

A score of one or two

0:27:060:27:09

would mean they're definitely not right for this production.

0:27:090:27:12

Guys who are in a boy band, they all have this thing.

0:27:120:27:17

It was missing for me.

0:27:170:27:18

I just thought you're not right for the part.

0:27:180:27:20

# Treasure

0:27:200:27:22

# That is what you are

0:27:220:27:26

# Honey, you're my golden star... #

0:27:260:27:29

Three is...it could tip either way. You see talent there.

0:27:290:27:34

I think there's room for improvement there,

0:27:370:27:39

but what you can't teach somebody

0:27:390:27:42

is to have that confidence and that energy,

0:27:420:27:44

so you've got that there.

0:27:440:27:46

Just got to push the rest.

0:27:460:27:48

# And I'm giving it my all

0:27:480:27:51

# I'm not the guy you're taking home

0:27:510:27:55

# Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

0:27:550:27:58

# I keep dancing on my own

0:27:580:28:03

# Ooh-ooh-ooh... #

0:28:030:28:06

Four stars is they have to be through to the next audition.

0:28:060:28:09

Someone who's got a very good crowd reaction, nice personality,

0:28:090:28:13

a good singing voice.

0:28:130:28:15

GRAHAM: Yes!

0:28:150:28:18

A four means it wasn't perfect, but it was great.

0:28:180:28:21

I love a great, full voice,

0:28:210:28:24

and you definitely have it.

0:28:240:28:26

It was so, so good.

0:28:260:28:28

# You're too sexy, beautiful

0:28:280:28:31

# And everybody wants a taste

0:28:310:28:33

# That's why

0:28:330:28:36

# I still get jealous... #

0:28:360:28:38

Five is...

0:28:380:28:39

I don't know what the rest of these judges are going to say right now

0:28:390:28:42

and I need you to be in this,

0:28:420:28:44

and it means that I really, really, really enjoyed it.

0:28:440:28:46

# I still get jealous... #

0:28:460:28:50

CHEERING

0:28:500:28:51

Yes!

0:28:510:28:52

That soulful voice, and it has a little bit of pop,

0:28:570:29:00

so I think it's a perfect mixture for a theatre show

0:29:000:29:03

with pop music in it. I loved it.

-The hairdo.

-What about the hairdo?

0:29:340:29:36

-It's quite...

-Do you not like my hairdo?

-I do love your hairdo.

0:29:360:29:39

-That's OK, then. I love your hairdo.

-Thank you so much.

-Brilliant.

0:29:390:29:41

I'm glad we see eye to eye on this.

0:29:410:29:43

Would you ever, for the purposes of a show, take your hair down?

0:29:430:29:47

-Yes.

-Oh, look, it's luxu...

0:29:470:29:49

-Look at that.

-Yeah.

0:29:490:29:52

-Ohh! That smells fragrant.

-Yeah.

0:29:520:29:54

-Hey, man, how are you?

-I'm great. How are you?

0:30:080:30:10

-What's your name?

-My name's Damien.

0:30:100:30:12

I'm 26 years old, from Derry in Ireland.

0:30:120:30:15

Oh, OK.

What do you do for a living?

0:30:190:30:20

I am a special effects trainee on the TV series Game Of Thrones.

0:30:200:30:24

-ALL:

-Ooh!

0:30:240:30:26

-Whoa!

-Wow!

0:30:260:30:29

What do you do in special effects?

0:30:290:30:30

Every day's different. That's why I love it so much.

0:30:300:30:33

One day I could be using big smoke machines,

0:30:330:30:35

the next day it could be fire or snow. It's great.

0:30:350:30:38

All right. Well, listen, good luck to you. I hope it goes well.

Let's hear it for Damien, everybody!

0:32:370:32:40

They love you!

0:32:410:32:43

They love you!

0:32:430:32:44

Well done!

0:32:440:32:45

Wow. Way to work a crowd.

0:32:490:32:51

It woke me up, I tell you. I was backstage...

0:32:510:32:53

LAUGHTER

0:32:530:32:54

I'd popped slippers on and everything and then, "Ooh!"

0:32:540:32:58

That was amazing.

0:32:590:33:00

Let's go to Amber. What did you think?

0:33:000:33:03

Landed!

0:33:030:33:04

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:33:040:33:08

There was so much energy. Yeah, the vocal, kind of, got off,

0:33:080:33:12

-just a bit, here and there, but I think...

-I agree.

0:33:120:33:14

..it was cos you were so excited.

0:33:140:33:15

Thank you. Thank you very much.

0:33:170:33:18

Eh, Gary, what did you think about that?

0:33:180:33:21

Listen, no-one is going to deny

0:33:210:33:24

that energy is fantastic.

0:33:240:33:25

APPLAUSE

0:33:250:33:27

GRAHAM: All right.

0:33:270:33:29

We are going to find out now if you have got enough stars

0:33:290:33:31

to go through to the next stage of the competition.

0:33:310:33:34

Let's find out how Damien has been scored.

0:33:350:33:38

AUDIENCE: Oh-h-h-h-h-h!

0:33:470:33:49

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:33:580:34:00

Well done, that man!

0:34:070:34:09

Look at that. Dannii Minogue - five out of five.

0:34:090:34:11

Back when you started, I was like "Oh, oh-oh!"

0:34:130:34:16

Like I was being electrocuted! And you didn't stop from there.

0:34:160:34:19

-Thank you very much.

-Loved it.

-Thank you.

0:34:190:34:23

Erm, Martin, what would have made it a five?

0:34:230:34:26

There was just a few little pitchy bits in the vocals.

0:34:260:34:29

You were that far away from me giving it a five.

0:34:290:34:32

-Well done.

-Well, you are going through! You'll be seeing them.

0:34:320:34:34

Congratulations!

0:34:340:34:36

Oh, go on!

0:34:360:34:37

Big hug! Damien, everybody!

0:34:370:34:38

Oh, I stay here! Goodbye. Goodbye. Bye!

0:34:380:34:41

-You love rock?!

-Oh, I'm a secret rocker.

0:34:430:34:45

-Are you kidding me?

-Oh, my God, you just went, "Whoo!"

-Yeah!

0:34:450:34:48

Gary was like, "What the heck is happening?!"

0:34:480:34:52

-Who are your favourite rock band?

-Oh, my God.

0:34:520:34:55

-I love Guns N' Roses.

-Yeah.

-I love anybody you can think of.

0:34:550:34:59

I love rock.

0:34:590:35:00

So, with Damien power ballading his way through to the next stage,

0:35:030:35:06

he is one step closer to our awesome prize -

0:35:060:35:09

a role in this exciting new stage show.

0:35:090:35:11

This musical has been in the planning for about two years.

0:35:110:35:15

Every since I got involved in theatre,

0:35:150:35:18

I was desperate to try and find a way

0:35:180:35:21

of putting the music of Take That in a stage show.

0:35:210:35:24

The musical's not about Take That, but it uses Take That's songs

0:35:270:35:31

to tell a new and unique story.

0:35:310:35:33

It is all about friendship,

0:35:330:35:35

commitment

0:35:350:35:36

and looking after one another.

0:35:360:35:38

We need the best possible group of people

0:35:420:35:44

to make the ultimate boy band.

0:35:440:35:46

There's a feeling I get

0:35:490:35:51

when our auditionees walk on stage

0:35:510:35:53

and it wants me to feel like

0:35:530:35:55

the 19-year-old version of me.

0:35:550:35:58

When I feel that, I know they are right for the part.

0:35:580:36:01

-What's your name?

-Curtis.

-Curtis. I'm Mel. Good to see you.

0:36:140:36:17

Have you been playing for ages?

0:36:170:36:19

-You know, since you were a kid?

-Yeah, yeah.

0:36:190:36:21

I was playing when I was really young,

0:36:210:36:23

when I was about eight or nine, I used to walk

0:36:230:36:27

early to school, so I could use the practice room

0:36:270:36:29

and learns chords

0:36:290:36:31

and things like that. It's just progressed from there.

0:36:310:36:34

You are living and breathing the art, aren't you?

0:36:350:36:38

He has always been writing songs.

0:36:420:36:44

He said, "I've got 120 songs, that I've written, in my song bank."

0:36:440:36:48

I thought, "Yeah, course you have(!)"

0:36:480:36:50

And then, when he showed me his computer, actually, no,

0:36:500:36:52

he was telling the truth.

0:36:520:36:53

I think Gary Barlow's influenced him throughout his life

0:36:530:36:56

and that seal of approval,

0:36:560:36:58

even if he didn't get through to the next stage,

0:36:580:37:01

would be enough for Curtis.

0:37:010:37:03

Whenever he performs, every stops and everybody listens.

0:37:030:37:07

He is quite little and dinky and cute and cuddly.

0:37:070:37:11

Then, this massive noise comes out

0:37:110:37:13

and people just stand still and think, "Wow!"

0:37:130:37:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:37:160:37:21

How are you doing, fella? How are you?

0:37:240:37:26

-How are you doing?

-What's your name?

0:37:260:37:28

I'm Curtis. I'm 23 and I'm from Leeds!

0:37:280:37:30

CHEERING

0:37:300:37:33

-What do you do for a living?

-I work at a rugby club full-time

0:37:370:37:41

and I also song-write.

0:37:410:37:42

So, my day is a bit jumbled. One minute, I could be cleaning up sick

0:37:420:37:45

and, then, the next minute, I could be writing a song.

0:37:450:37:48

When you say you song-write, is that for you or for other people?

0:37:480:37:51

For me and other people.

0:37:510:37:53

I wrote a few tracks on Matt Cardle's upcoming album.

0:37:530:37:56

Oh.

0:37:560:37:58

Really good.

0:37:580:37:59

CHEERING

0:37:590:38:00

-All right, let's see what you've got.

-Thank you.

0:40:140:40:15

Judges, have you entered your scores? Have you? Great.

0:40:150:40:19

All right, Curtis. The crowd loved it.

0:40:190:40:22

Let's go to the judges.

0:40:220:40:23

Gary, what did you make of Curtis?

0:40:230:40:25

Oh, my goodness!

0:40:250:40:26

CHEERING

0:40:260:40:28

GARY: What a voice!

0:40:280:40:30

It's amazing, actually, because we have seen a lot of great singers,

0:40:310:40:35

but that soul,

0:40:350:40:37

you are not taught that. You either have that or you don't.

0:40:370:40:40

CHEERING

0:40:400:40:42

It was a bit of a masterclass, to be honest.

0:40:420:40:45

Fantastic. Well done.

0:40:450:40:47

GRAHAM: Dannii?

0:40:470:40:48

What I always love is energy, spirit

0:40:480:40:52

and a sparkle in the eye.

0:40:520:40:54

You rocked that stage.

0:40:540:40:55

Come on.

0:40:550:40:57

Come on!!

0:40:570:40:59

CHEERING

This is the moment of truth. We're going to find out how many stars

0:41:030:41:06

you have received, in total.

0:41:060:41:08

You need 15 or more to light up.

0:41:080:41:11

-You understand that you're on the 15th star.

-Yep.

0:41:110:41:13

All right, Curtis. Good luck.

The whole room is so happy for you!

0:41:550:41:58

Amber, what do you want to say to Curtis?

0:41:580:42:00

A five from me is when I feel it right here. And I felt that

0:42:000:42:03

right in my heart. You were just so...

0:42:030:42:05

Breath of fresh air.

0:42:060:42:07

-Breath of fresh air.

-Gary.

0:42:070:42:09

Seriously,

0:42:090:42:10

would it have killed you to give him a five(?)

0:42:100:42:13

LAUGHTER

0:42:130:42:14

He's got somewhere to go.

0:42:140:42:16

Got somewhere to go.

0:42:160:42:17

GRAHAM: Is there anything he needs to work on?

0:42:170:42:20

You know what, it was all about the voice for me.

0:42:200:42:21

I want to see a little bit more performance next time.

0:42:210:42:24

All right. How are you feeling after that, Curtis?

0:42:240:42:26

It's really exciting. It's, like, amazing to do it.

0:42:260:42:29

Well, listen, they are thrilled for you.

0:42:290:42:33

Everyone is thrilled for you.

0:42:330:42:35

You're through to the next stage. It's Curtis, everyone!

0:42:350:42:38

CHEERING

0:42:380:42:39

Well done, buddy. Fantastic.

0:42:390:42:41

Incredible, mate. Incredible.

0:42:450:42:48

-Well done, mate.

-Thank you very much.

-If that's the start,

0:42:480:42:50

-I look forward to seeing what else you have got. Well done.

-Cheers!

0:42:500:42:53

He is going to do well in this. Really well.

0:42:530:42:56

THEY TALK OVER EACH OTHER

0:42:560:42:59

Maybe he will believe it now. Bit of a confidence boost.

0:42:590:43:01

I loved him. He sent a shiver up my spine.

0:43:010:43:04

Yeah, I got through. Whoo!

0:43:040:43:07

-MEL:

-Like Curtis, most of our boys

0:43:070:43:09

applied to audition themselves.

0:43:090:43:11

But some were secretly nominated to take part

But he has been hoodwinked by his best friend and biggest fan, Omari.

0:43:410:43:44

Ho-ho, the cheeky scamp!

0:43:440:43:47

Yeah, music is so important

0:43:470:43:49

in Julius's life. His main focus is just

0:43:490:43:50

getting his music out there.

0:43:500:43:52

THEY SING

0:43:520:43:55

He is always telling me how he wants the opportunity.

0:43:550:43:57

# Clock strikes, upon the hour... #

0:43:570:44:00

If I have to tell a white lie to make it happen, then that's cool.

0:44:000:44:03

Very sneaky, Omari.

0:44:030:44:04

I like your style!

0:44:040:44:06

Speaking of style,

0:44:080:44:09

here comes a fella simply oozing the stuff...

0:44:090:44:12

..our main man, GB!

0:44:130:44:14

# I'm so surprised

0:44:160:44:17

# You got it right

0:44:170:44:19

# And spending the night.... #

0:44:190:44:21

Good voice

0:44:210:44:22

and really good confidence.

0:44:220:44:24

I love that. Can't wait to see him sing live.

0:44:240:44:27

Who doesn't love gospel music?

0:44:320:44:34

Right. The choir is rocking. Time for Gary to come a-knocking.

0:44:340:44:39

(Come on.)

0:44:390:44:40

# I want to feel the heat with somebody

0:44:420:44:44

# Whoa, oh-oh-oh

0:44:440:44:46

# Yeah, I want to dance with somebody

0:44:460:44:48

# With somebody

0:44:480:44:50

# With somebody who loves me... #

0:44:500:44:53

SINGERS GIGGLE

0:44:530:44:55

Julius has clocked him...

0:44:590:45:02

but the show must go on, my darling!

0:45:020:45:03

That's professionalism, kids!

0:45:030:45:05

# ..With somebody who loves me. #

0:45:050:45:08

GARY: Whoo!!

0:45:080:45:10

APPLAUSE

0:45:100:45:12

I am just going to interrupt,

0:45:130:45:15

because I am guessing you're Julius, right?

0:45:150:45:18

-Yeah, yeah. What's up here?!

-I thought so. Nice to meet you.

0:45:180:45:20

-Nice to meet you.

-I'm sorry to tell you that

0:45:200:45:22

your friend Omari here

0:45:220:45:23

has set this little surprise up for you today.

0:45:230:45:27

I am out, around the country,

0:45:270:45:29

looking for amazing talent to be in my new show and I wanted to ask you,

0:45:290:45:33

will you come and audition for us on the Let It Shine stage?

0:45:330:45:37

Yeah, yeah! Definitely!

0:45:370:45:38

CHEERING

0:45:380:45:40

Are you sure about that?!

0:45:400:45:42

I definitely thought it was a documentary

0:45:420:45:45

about different choirs. When I saw Gary Barlow,

0:45:450:45:47

I was like...I was in shock.

0:45:470:45:50

Then, he picked me out, I was like, "What, me?!"

0:45:500:45:53

-He's the guy!

-Oh, yeah! You watch out for him!

0:45:530:45:57

Just knowing that I have been able to give Julius the opportunity to do

0:45:570:46:00

what he loves. I just feel great that he is actually able to do it.

0:46:000:46:02

CHEERING

0:46:020:46:06

'Thank you, Gary, for the opportunity.'

0:46:060:46:08

I'll see you in Manchester.

0:46:080:46:09

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:46:150:46:18

You!

0:46:220:46:23

-Hello, there, Julius.

-Hello, Gary.

0:46:260:46:28

-Well, we know each other, don't we?

-Yes, yes, yes.

-OK.

0:46:280:46:31

And is your friend Omari here today? I think... There he is. There he is.

0:46:310:46:35

-Hello, sir.

-How are you doing?

-How are you?

-Good.

0:46:350:46:39

Julius, tell everyone a little bit about yourself.

0:46:390:46:42

I am 20. I am from South London, guys,

0:46:420:46:45

and I teach kids dance, singing...

0:46:450:46:48

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:46:480:46:51

Listen, we can't wait to hear you sing. Good luck.

0:46:510:46:53

CHEERING

0:48:140:48:18

GRAHAM: Come back here, sir.

0:48:200:48:23

-Well done. Congratulations.

-You're welcome.

0:48:230:48:25

Well done, Julius.

0:48:250:48:26

You don't appear to have a nerve in your body.

0:48:260:48:29

That was like you were dancing at the bus stop. It was amazing.

0:48:290:48:33

-Well, good job, Julius.

-Yeah.

-This crowd loved you. They loved you.

0:48:340:48:37

CHEERING

0:48:370:48:39

Let's go to Dannii Minogue. What did you think of Julius?

0:48:390:48:42

What I love about you is your energy and that you said

0:48:420:48:46

that you were teaching other kids and that you would work

0:48:460:48:49

so well in a group and in a company

0:48:490:48:52

and make everyone smile

0:48:520:48:54

and inspire everyone. And you would

0:48:540:48:56

soak it all up and learn so much.

0:48:560:48:59

I just felt such a good energy. Thank you for that performance.

0:48:590:49:03

APPLAUSE

0:49:030:49:05

Julius's good mood is kind of infectious. Martin.

0:49:050:49:09

-Did you catch the good vibes?

-Oh, you're absolutely right.

0:49:090:49:12

-It was so infectious. Your audition was fantastic.

-Thank you, Martin.

0:49:120:49:16

Let's find out how Julius has been scored.

0:49:180:49:21

AUDIENCE: Oh-h-h-h-h!

0:49:300:49:32

-16! You have another one!

-Oh, oh! OK!

0:49:420:49:45

-Well done, sir.

-Thank you, guys.

-Congratulations.

-Thank you.

0:49:470:49:51

-You're glad Omari put you through now, aren't you?

-Yeah, thank you,

0:49:510:49:54

Omari, for the surprise!

0:49:540:49:56

-A good surprise.

-Yeah, yeah!

0:49:560:49:57

Amber, four from you.

0:49:570:49:59

It was infectious, it was fun.

0:49:590:50:01

I have been smiling the whole time you've been out here

0:50:010:50:03

because your smile is so infectious.

0:50:030:50:05

-But I really enjoyed it.

-Thank you.

0:50:050:50:07

Gary, were you sitting there just hoping he was going to be good?

0:50:070:50:10

LAUGHTER

0:50:100:50:11

Yeah, well, I was. But it is so hard,

0:50:110:50:13

what we're asking people to do, and there you were.

0:50:130:50:16

You've got the song, you've got the dance,

0:50:160:50:17

a very good integration, by the way, of song and dance.

0:50:170:50:20

It wasn't just a sing, and then I'm going to dance,

0:50:200:50:22

and now I'm too out of breath to sing again.

0:50:220:50:24

It was the whole thing. So I thought it was a brilliant audition.

0:50:240:50:27

-Well done.

-Thank you. Thank you.

0:50:270:50:29

APPLAUSE

0:50:290:50:30

Anything you want to say to the judges, Julius?

0:50:300:50:33

I love Glee. I love you on Glee. So, yeah...

0:50:330:50:36

Thank you.

0:50:360:50:37

So, you love the others, too? You love the others as well?

0:50:370:50:39

You love them all. LAUGHTER

0:50:390:50:41

Everybody. I do.

0:50:410:50:42

-It's Julius!

-Hey!

0:50:420:50:43

APPLAUSE

0:50:430:50:45

We'll see you later. Congratulations. Good job.

0:50:450:50:48

Good for him.

0:50:520:50:53

He was so natural.

0:50:530:50:55

I just thought some of his dancing was a little bit...stage school.

0:50:550:50:58

-Yeah.

-And I think that's going to have to come out of him.

0:50:580:51:01

-Oh, yeah, it was definitely rehearsed.

-Yeah.

0:51:010:51:03

# I know I don't know you

0:51:030:51:05

# But I'd like to

0:51:050:51:07

# Skip the small talk and romance, girl

0:51:070:51:11

# That's all I have to say

0:51:110:51:13

# So, baby, can we dance? #

0:51:130:51:16

To win a role in this musical,

0:51:190:51:21

these boys will need to be able to bust some moves.

0:51:210:51:24

Dancing is not something that comes naturally to everyone.

0:51:240:51:27

# Everybody dance... #

0:51:270:51:29

My wife can never understand why I can get behind a bass guitar

0:51:290:51:33

and I can jog around as if I have some kind of timing,

0:51:330:51:36

but when it comes to dancing, I absolutely have none.

0:51:360:51:40

GRAHAM: No-one's looking at your dancing in those trousers, Martin.

0:51:400:51:43

There's people who literally, from two years old,

0:51:430:51:46

have great timing and rhythm,

0:51:460:51:48

and they just have a sense of how their body can move.

0:51:480:51:51

And then there's people, unlike myself,

0:51:520:51:55

who struggle moving round,

0:51:550:51:57

and they have to work on it, but that's fine, too.

0:51:570:51:59

I learnt to dance on the job.

0:52:010:52:03

It becomes muscle memory.

0:52:050:52:07

If a song of mine comes on, those dances are inside your body.

0:52:070:52:11

When you're putting a band together,

0:52:130:52:15

if one of the guys is better vocally and not so much dancing, well, then,

0:52:150:52:20

the other guy can make up for that, and that's where you get your blend.

0:52:200:52:24

I've never been a good mover. But I didn't need to be.

0:52:250:52:28

All the other guys were great dancers.

0:52:280:52:30

It means I don't have to worry about that.

0:52:300:52:32

I'll help them, "Right, we need to learn these harmonies."

0:52:320:52:36

And that's how it works.

0:52:360:52:37

The strength is all of us.

0:52:380:52:40

That's the power of a band.

0:52:400:52:42

Oops, I actually stepped on your toe. I'm so sorry!

0:52:470:52:49

It's all right. That's not a problem.

0:52:490:52:51

That's a really good start(!)

0:52:510:52:52

Are you a dancer?

0:52:520:52:53

I am. I'm a professional dancer and singer.

0:52:530:52:55

I've worked on cruise ships and stuff.

0:52:550:52:57

-Have you?

-Yeah.

0:52:570:52:58

When you do your audition today, are you going to dance as well?

0:52:580:53:01

-Yes, I am.

-What moves?

0:53:010:53:03

Can you give me some names of moves? I won't know what they are.

0:53:030:53:05

OK, well, there's a nip up.

0:53:050:53:07

-A nip up. Nip up or lip up?

-Nip up.

-Nip up.

0:53:070:53:09

Straight from the floor on your shoulders, onto your feet.

0:53:090:53:11

So, it's when you're like that.

0:53:110:53:13

-Laying on the floor like this.

-And then from there...

0:53:130:53:15

Then you rock back onto shoulders, then kick up onto your feet.

0:53:150:53:17

Do you think Gary Barlow could do a nip up?

0:53:170:53:19

-I think he could.

-He probably did in the past, didn't he?

0:53:190:53:22

-I think so.

-What about Martin Kent?

0:53:220:53:23

Good for a nip up?

0:53:230:53:24

-I reckon so, yes.

-I think he's done several nip ups.

0:53:240:53:26

-I think he'd give it a good go.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:53:260:53:28

I'm now obsessed with the nip up,

0:53:280:53:29

and I want to train and be able to do one.

0:53:290:53:31

-You want to be able to do one?

-Yes, please, Jamie.

0:53:310:53:33

That won't take long. I can teach you.

0:53:330:53:34

Thank you very, very much.

0:53:340:53:36

-I look forward to our first nip up workshop.

-Amazing.

0:53:360:53:38

That sounds rude. Back to your magazine.

0:53:380:53:39

APPLAUSE

0:53:440:53:46

-Hi, there.

-All right?

-Yeah. I'm good.

-Good.

0:53:540:53:56

-LAUGHTER

-What's your name?

0:53:560:53:58

My name's Jamie, I'm 24, and I'm from Essex.

0:53:580:54:01

From Essex!

0:54:010:54:02

CHEERING

0:54:020:54:04

And do you perform much?

0:54:040:54:05

Well, I've just recently come back off of doing two cruise contracts

0:54:050:54:09

-as part of a show team.

-Yeah?

0:54:090:54:10

I was the male dancer, I got to travel all around the world,

0:54:100:54:12

see all different places. It was great.

0:54:120:54:14

So you've worked with a team before? That's always interesting.

0:54:140:54:17

Yeah. I love meeting new people,

0:54:170:54:19

love creating teams and seeing what we can come up with together,

0:54:190:54:22

-and things like that.

-APPLAUSE

0:54:220:54:23

It's quite an interesting thing, like,

0:54:230:54:25

being in a band and then being on stage.

0:54:250:54:27

But you have some experience already,

0:54:270:54:29

-like, working with a team of people.

-Yeah.

0:54:290:54:31

This is your moment to shine. So show us what you can do.

0:54:310:54:34

Thanks very much.

0:55:540:55:56

Let's hear it for Jamie, everybody.

0:56:010:56:03

-Hi, buddy.

-Hi, there.

0:56:030:56:04

-How are you doing? Nice to see you, Jamie.

-Yeah, good.

0:56:040:56:06

Is that a number you've done before?

0:56:060:56:08

-Do you do that on the ships, or...?

-No, I just learned it for here.

0:56:080:56:10

-Yeah? Bust a move!

-Yeah. Yeah, why not?

0:56:100:56:13

-Well done, Jamie.

-Thank you.

0:56:130:56:14

Amber, what did you think?

0:56:140:56:15

I really dug the choreography.

0:56:150:56:17

LAUGHTER

0:56:170:56:18

I really did. You had great energy coming out.

0:56:180:56:21

I would have liked to...just to hear a little more, vocally,

0:56:210:56:26

-cos it was just kind of straight all the way through.

-Uh-huh.

0:56:260:56:28

But your tone was really great, and you stayed on key,

0:56:280:56:31

-stayed on pitch, and the dancing was really good.

-OK.

0:56:310:56:33

So I'm a little on the fence, but I do think that it was good.

0:56:330:56:35

OK. Dannii, what did you think of Jamie?

0:56:350:56:37

Well, you've got the energy, you can dance.

0:56:370:56:39

What I was missing was the believability.

0:56:390:56:41

You know, in theatre, it's got to be...

0:56:410:56:44

-real, to move people.

-Yeah.

0:56:440:56:47

You've got it all there,

0:56:470:56:48

but you need to really not be scared to let it go.

0:56:480:56:52

OK. We're going to go to the scores.

0:56:520:56:54

-We're going to find out total number of stars you've been awarded.

-OK.

0:56:540:56:57

Remember, you need a minimum of 15 stars to light up.

0:56:570:57:01

-This is the star.

-This one.

0:57:010:57:03

OK. You ready?

0:57:030:57:04

-Yeah, I'm ready.

-All right.

0:57:040:57:05

Let's find out how Jamie has been scored.

0:57:050:57:08

17!

0:57:350:57:36

-Well done!

-Thank you so much.

0:57:390:57:41

Cheering in Essex corner! Look at them.

0:57:410:57:43

That's my mum and my dad and my brother!

0:57:430:57:45

He did good! He did good!

0:57:460:57:48

Gary?

0:57:480:57:49

I like the attitude of someone who comes on stage...

0:57:490:57:52

And in fact, it takes me back to when we started as a band.

0:57:520:57:55

It wasn't enough for us to just go out there and sing,

0:57:550:57:57

we wanted to put a show on for the audience.

0:57:570:57:59

And that's a performer who respects the audience,

0:57:590:58:01

-you want to entertain people.

-Yeah.

0:58:010:58:03

So, OK, it was a little bit dated.

0:58:030:58:05

There was a little bit of the cruise stuff coming in there.

0:58:050:58:08

If you've learnt those steps, if you're that sort of performer,

0:58:080:58:11

you'll be able to take anything on board.

0:58:110:58:12

You're like a sponge, and that's what I get from you.

0:58:120:58:15

-So I think the potential is massive with you.

-Thank you so much.

0:58:150:58:17

Look what you got. Look what you got from the Kempster!

0:58:170:58:20

I know, that's... Yeah. That's insane.

0:58:200:58:21

Five points from the Kempster!

0:58:210:58:23

I think you were absolutely great. It was a really great audition.

0:58:230:58:26

And I give you five because we cannot lose you on this show.

0:58:260:58:29

-Wow!

-Thank you!

0:58:290:58:31

Well, we haven't lost you. What do you say to those comments?

0:58:310:58:34

-Thank you so much. Thank you.

-Congratulations.

0:58:340:58:36

Ladies and gentlemen, one more time for Jamie!

0:58:360:58:39

-Well done.

-Thank you.

0:58:390:58:40

APPLAUSE

0:58:400:58:42

-Good energy to him.

-He looks so great.

0:58:430:58:46

Did you see the little bit when he winked at the camera,

0:58:460:58:49

he winked at the girls?

0:58:490:58:50

Are you pleased with how you're looking today, guys?

0:58:550:58:57

Maybe we should give you a quiff.

0:58:570:58:59

Go on. How do you do a... I've never had a quiff. Come on.

0:58:590:59:01

Oh, my gosh, right. Come and sit down.

0:59:010:59:02

Just, well, do... Give me a frontal quiff.

0:59:020:59:05

Guys, the problem is we're working with some quite fine...

0:59:050:59:08

-quite fine hair.

-Yeah. Yeah. Maybe we'll do low heat.

0:59:080:59:10

-Low heat.

-Yeah.

0:59:100:59:12

And a lot of product.

0:59:120:59:13

-Mm.

-And possibly a roller.

0:59:130:59:15

-A roller.

-Can I feel yours?

0:59:150:59:16

-That's good.

-It has this ability to spring back.

0:59:160:59:19

-You watching?

-OK.

-Here we go.

0:59:190:59:21

Just straight back.

0:59:210:59:23

That's like a well-baked sponge.

0:59:230:59:24

-Like music to my ears.

-Isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:59:250:59:27

With the hairdressing class over,

0:59:290:59:31

it's showtime for the lad with a lifelong love of musicals.

0:59:310:59:34

APPLAUSE

0:59:410:59:43

What's your name?

0:59:500:59:51

My name's Scott, I'm 23, and I'm from Liverpool.

0:59:510:59:54

APPLAUSE, CHEERING

0:59:540:59:55

Hang on, Scott, red or blue?

AUDIENCE: Oooh!

1:00:021:00:04

-Uh-oh. AUDIENCE: Red!

-Blue!

1:00:041:00:05

People are shouting red, but it's blue!

1:00:051:00:07

CHEERING

1:00:071:00:08

-Oh!

-Oh!

1:00:081:00:09

Oh, Scott. LAUGHTER

1:00:111:00:13

We'll put that aside. Don't worry, don't worry.

1:00:131:00:15

What you do for a living?

1:00:151:00:16

-I'm a performer.

-OK.

1:00:161:00:18

I've done a few shows.

1:00:181:00:19

The biggest thing I've probably done is Mamma Mia!.

1:00:191:00:22

I did that in the West End for a year.

1:00:221:00:23

What part were you playing?

1:00:231:00:25

I covered one of the lead roles, the role of Pepper.

1:00:251:00:28

I went on three times.

1:00:281:00:30

So you sat every night for a year,

1:00:301:00:32

-and went on three times?

-Yeah.

1:00:321:00:34

Well, I get to be in the ensemble,

1:00:341:00:35

so I still get to do the ensemble stuff.

1:00:351:00:38

So you were on stage anyway, but not the role you wanted to do.

1:00:381:00:40

-Not the role I wanted.

-Yeah.

1:00:401:00:43

AUDIENCE: Aww!

1:00:431:00:44

Is there anyone with you tonight?

1:00:461:00:48

I've got my mum and my sister, who're just over there.

1:00:481:00:50

CHEERING

1:00:501:00:52

Hiya!

1:00:541:00:55

So,

1:00:561:00:58

should he be in the lead role?

1:00:581:01:00

-Yes!

-Yes!

1:01:001:01:01

Well, you've got to show us, now.

1:01:011:01:03

-I know. Hopefully I can.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

1:01:031:01:06

Give it everything, good luck.

1:01:061:01:07

Thank you so much. Thank you.

1:03:131:03:15

Scott, everybody!

1:03:201:03:22

Well done, Scott.

1:03:221:03:24

Good job. Good job.

1:03:241:03:26

Dannii?

1:03:261:03:27

I think you kind of pushed it tonight.

1:03:291:03:32

It's really hard, when you're out there...

1:03:321:03:34

We all went on set and we stood where that star is.

1:03:341:03:37

-And oh, my goodness, it's so nerve-racking.

-Yeah.

1:03:371:03:40

-And you don't have the cast around you, and the ensemble.

-Yeah.

1:03:401:03:45

-It's really putting it under the worst pressure...

-Yeah.

1:03:461:03:49

..ever.

1:03:491:03:50

Martin, do you agree?

1:03:501:03:52

Your story really touches me, I have to say.

1:03:521:03:54

When I started out in Spandau Ballet, right,

1:03:541:03:57

-I was there for a year...

-Google it when you get home.

1:03:571:03:59

LAUGHTER

1:03:591:04:01

I carried the equipment,

1:04:011:04:03

-and I was their roadie, for a year.

-Wow.

1:04:031:04:05

And every night, I went to bed after their show,

1:04:051:04:09

I would pray and wish

1:04:091:04:11

that something terrible would happen to one of them...

1:04:111:04:13

LAUGHTER

1:04:131:04:15

..so that I could get on the stage.

1:04:151:04:17

And I felt you made a fantastic job, and I want to see you again.

1:04:171:04:23

CHEERING

1:04:231:04:24

-OK, so mixed comments.

-Yeah.

1:04:291:04:31

-We don't know how this is going to go.

-No.

1:04:311:04:33

But I wish you well. Best of luck.

1:04:331:04:36

Let's find out how Scott has been scored.

1:04:361:04:39

BOOING

1:05:021:05:05

Scott, I'm so sorry.

1:05:091:05:11

The ladies let you down. Amber...

1:05:111:05:14

Amber, why only three?

1:05:141:05:16

A 14 is always really hard.

1:05:161:05:18

-And a three is really when you're kind of on the fence.

-Yeah.

1:05:181:05:23

I do think that you're going to have your moment,

1:05:231:05:25

because I do think that you're great.

1:05:251:05:27

I believe I'll have my moment.

1:05:271:05:28

I do think that. And I know that you will.

1:05:281:05:30

-And I think you've made a mistake.

-CHEERING

1:05:301:05:32

And I know that you will.

1:05:321:05:33

But, but...

1:05:331:05:34

You've made a mistake.

1:05:341:05:36

I personally...

1:05:361:05:37

I personally don't think that this is your moment,

1:05:371:05:41

and this may not be the greatest thing for you.

1:05:411:05:43

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

1:05:431:05:44

Dannii, just two?

1:05:441:05:47

I thought you were pushing it tonight.

1:05:471:05:49

And it was very, very theatre,

1:05:491:05:51

not boy band in a theatre show.

1:05:511:05:54

BOOING

1:05:541:05:55

OK. Gary, I think you think the judges made a mistake?

1:05:551:05:58

Yes, I do, and that's why I marked you so high.

1:05:581:06:01

CHEERING

1:06:011:06:02

I wanted you to get through with a higher score.

1:06:021:06:05

Scott, let me just say something to you, though, OK?

1:06:051:06:07

If I was marking your vocals,

1:06:071:06:09

-I'd have given you a two for that.

-OK.

1:06:091:06:11

And you had to reach so hard for those notes,

1:06:111:06:14

-and you didn't get one of those top notes.

-Yeah.

1:06:141:06:17

-You didn't need to take that risk.

-OK.

1:06:171:06:19

Thank you so much, the two of you, for believing in me.

1:06:191:06:21

And hopefully, maybe,

1:06:211:06:22

I'll get another chance to prove to Dannii that I've got...

1:06:221:06:26

I'm worth more than two. Because I think I am.

1:06:261:06:29

APPLAUSE

1:06:291:06:30

Scott, everybody!

1:06:301:06:31

Sorry about that.

1:06:321:06:34

-Aww.

-I wasn't a two. Come on.

-No.

-It wasn't a two.

1:06:381:06:42

His vocal wasn't the best, but sometimes in a band,

1:06:421:06:46

you don't have to be the best.

1:06:461:06:48

You just have to have the personality,

1:06:481:06:50

and you have to be the person that everybody wants to watch.

1:06:501:06:53

Yeah, but everyone would have to carry him. He was not in tune.

1:06:531:06:57

I wanted to see him again.

1:06:571:06:58

Yeah.

1:06:581:07:00

Backstage, the final two boys are waiting their turn to perform.

1:07:011:07:05

In the studio, everyone's gone musical mad.

1:07:091:07:12

# Oh, Gary!

1:07:121:07:13

And even our warm-up man is out to impress Gary

1:07:131:07:16

with his vocal talents.

1:07:221:07:25

# Forever

1:07:281:07:30

# Together we will be

1:07:301:07:33

# Say you'll stay

1:07:361:07:38

AUDIENCE: # Oh, Gary! #

1:07:391:07:42

Oh, Gary, baby, indeed.

1:07:441:07:46

I'd be your Sandy any day of the week.

1:07:461:07:49

Next to perform for the crowd in Manchester,

1:07:501:07:52

one of our youngest auditionees,

1:07:521:07:53

16-year-old student Huw.

1:07:531:07:55

Huw's the youngest in our family.

1:07:591:08:01

He is definitely a typical younger brother.

1:08:011:08:03

Doesn't have a mute button when he needs one.

1:08:031:08:06

He's always been

1:08:061:08:07

a happy-go-lucky child,

1:08:071:08:08

and very confident.

1:08:081:08:09

A bit of a character, shall we say.

1:08:091:08:11

I could definitely see him being the troublemaker of the band.

1:08:111:08:15

The house isn't the same when he's not there.

1:08:151:08:18

It's always much quieter.

1:08:181:08:20

Which is nice.

Huw, how do your parents feel about losing you on the road for a year?

1:09:081:09:12

1:09:121:09:15

"and I will micromanage you when I'm around," so...

That felt amazing.

Yeah, smart move. Amber, what have you got to say?

1:11:531:11:56

I really loved it.

1:11:561:11:57

It really reminded me of, like,

1:11:571:11:58

The Jackson 5 when they were younger, a little Michael.

1:11:581:12:01

Your tone, that's what it reminded me of.

1:12:011:12:03

When you were singing,

1:12:031:12:04

I was hearing how you were holding out your notes.

1:12:041:12:06

-You seem a little bit shy? Maybe just a little bit?

-Yeah.

1:12:061:12:10

But you want to be an extrovert, and I think that's really cool.

1:12:101:12:13

Yeah. Well, thank you. I do, like, love what you did with Glee.

1:12:131:12:15

You were, like, amazing.

1:12:151:12:17

-Thank you!

-LAUGHTER

1:12:171:12:18

So to hear that from you is like, awesome.

1:12:181:12:20

Can I change my score?

1:12:201:12:21

LAUGHTER, CHEERING

1:12:211:12:23

Martin?

1:12:251:12:26

You've got the girls on your side. You can sing.

1:12:261:12:29

-You need a lot of work.

-Yeah.

-But who doesn't?

1:12:291:12:31

-Listen, I still need work.

-LAUGHTER

1:12:311:12:34

-You have got an incredible journey in front of you.

-Thank you so much.

1:12:341:12:37

CHEERING

1:12:371:12:39

All right, listen, those were amazing comments.

1:12:401:12:42

-But now's the moment of truth.

-Yeah.

1:12:421:12:44

It's time for everybody and the judges to find out

1:12:441:12:47

the total number of stars you've been awarded.

1:12:471:12:50

-We need the magical 15th star to light up.

-Yeah.

1:12:501:12:54

-OK? All set?

-Yeah, I'm ready.

-All right. Good luck, sir.

1:12:541:12:56

Let's find out how Huw has been scored!

1:12:561:12:59

Yes!

1:13:191:13:20

APPLAUSE, CHEERING

1:13:201:13:22

16!

1:13:241:13:26

Well done. Congratulations.

1:13:261:13:28

I'm so happy for you!

1:13:281:13:30

Dannii, what have you got to say?

1:13:301:13:31

Look, it doesn't hurt to be good looking like you are,

1:13:311:13:33

-to be in a boy band.

-LAUGHTER

1:13:331:13:35

I was thinking Mick Jagger, like, that kind of

1:13:351:13:38

young but, like, really confident.

1:13:381:13:40

That's what I got from it.

1:13:401:13:41

16 does seem very young, but I mean, when Take That started,

1:13:411:13:45

you were, what, 17, Gary? Or...?

1:13:451:13:46

-I was 19 when Take That started.

-Oh, so old!

1:13:461:13:49

Yes. Robbie was 16, actually.

1:13:491:13:51

OK. So it can be done at 16?

1:13:511:13:53

Oh, my goodness.

1:13:531:13:54

You in a boy band? Incredible. It would be incredible.

1:13:541:13:58

APPLAUSE

1:13:581:13:59

You are made for this part.

1:13:591:14:01

I've got a feeling that girls all around the country

1:14:011:14:04

are going to be falling in love with you right now.

1:14:041:14:06

That's what got him excited!.

1:14:101:14:11

Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Huw!

1:14:121:14:14

APPLAUSE, CHEERING

1:14:141:14:16

He's a good boy, isn't he?

1:14:191:14:20

He's the kind of dude you're thinking...

1:14:201:14:23

you know, in ten years' time, they might be referring back

1:14:231:14:26

to that as, "Oh, you remember his first audition on TV?"

1:14:261:14:30

-He's got something special.

-Totally. Totally. Wow. Fantastic.

1:14:301:14:33

Time to meet actor and handyman Harry,

1:14:361:14:39

who's hoping he can do enough to muscle his way into the next round.

1:14:391:14:42

You're in good shape, aren't you?

1:14:451:14:47

Do you have to do a lot to kind of keep the...

1:14:471:14:49

the buffery going?

1:14:491:14:51

Yeah, well, I work out, like, six times a week. Well, I try to.

1:14:511:14:53

But I enjoy it, I don't really dislike it. I enjoy keeping fit.

1:14:531:14:56

Do you also oil up?

1:14:561:14:58

-What, to go to the gym?

-No.

-No!

-No...

1:14:591:15:01

It's not an '80s music video, like, leg warmers and body oil.

1:15:011:15:04

No... No, but you know...

1:15:041:15:07

-Sometimes you see performers, and they do look a bit shiny.

-Oh, yeah.

1:15:071:15:10

Yeah, well, no, I don't...

1:15:101:15:11

-No, no, that's in the '80s.

-Yeah, let's leave it in the '80s.

1:15:111:15:14

They're not doing that any more, are they?

1:15:141:15:15

-No, they're not doing that any more.

-No, there's not a whiff of that.

1:15:151:15:18

APPLAUSE

1:15:241:15:26

There's a lot of hormones in the room, right?

1:15:431:15:46

-LAUGHTER

-I can't hear after that.

1:15:461:15:49

What's your name... WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

1:15:491:15:51

How you doing? I'm Harry, I'm 26, and I'm from Bromley.

1:15:511:15:54

Bromley.

1:15:541:15:55

And what it do you do in Bromley? What's your job?

1:15:571:15:59

At the minute, I'm an out of work actor,

1:15:591:16:01

but I'm a porter for serviced apartments

1:16:011:16:03

in Kensington and Chelsea,

1:16:031:16:04

so basically, doing the maintenance of the buildings,

1:16:041:16:06

fixing problems, you know, changing light bulbs and that.

1:16:061:16:09

So...pretty much it.

1:16:091:16:10

And you spend a long time in the gym, obviously?

1:16:101:16:14

-You know, six days a week, you know.

-LAUGHTER

1:16:141:16:17

Just trying to keep trim, you know what I mean?

1:16:171:16:19

How's your abs?

1:16:191:16:21

CHEERING, WOLF WHISTLES

1:16:211:16:22

Let's have a look.

1:16:221:16:24

Give me 15 stars, and I'll take it off.

1:16:241:16:25

LAUGHTER

1:16:251:16:27

Take it off, and I'll think about it.

1:16:301:16:32

LAUGHTER

1:16:321:16:34

That ain't the deal. That ain't the deal.

1:16:341:16:36

Oh, I hate to interrupt this speed dating, but...

1:16:371:16:40

LAUGHTER

1:16:401:16:42

-Take it away.

-Will do.

1:16:431:16:45

1:18:091:18:10

Good job.

1:18:131:18:14

Congratulations. Well done.

1:18:141:18:16

Could the judges please...

1:18:181:18:20

..put in their scores.

1:18:211:18:23

I'll tell you, Harry,

1:18:241:18:25

there's a thin line between an audience and a mob.

1:18:251:18:28

And they... LAUGHTER

1:18:281:18:30

..they may have crossed it.

1:18:301:18:32

Did you enjoy that?

1:18:331:18:35

I did, actually, yeah. I really enjoyed it.

1:18:351:18:37

You guys were great down there, thank you.

1:18:371:18:40

Yeah, all of you. Thank you. Brilliant.

1:18:401:18:42

OK. Harry, here we go. Dannii, what did you think?

1:18:421:18:44

You know, you don't have to touch him on the shoulder.

1:18:441:18:46

No, I've touched them all.

1:18:461:18:47

LAUGHTER I've set a precedent.

1:18:471:18:50

I completely don't remember what you asked me.

1:18:521:18:54

It's the same old thing. He sang, what do you think?

1:18:561:18:58

LAUGHTER

1:18:581:19:00

APPLAUSE

1:19:001:19:02

OK. Vocally, not so strong.

1:19:031:19:06

-BOOING

-Stage presence, very strong.

1:19:071:19:09

CHEERING

1:19:091:19:11

Gary Barlow, what have you got to say?

1:19:111:19:13

I'm definitely with Dannii.

1:19:131:19:15

You know, possibly shouldn't have gone up to the high head voice -

1:19:151:19:18

that didn't really work for you today.

1:19:181:19:19

But I'm somewhere in the middle as well.

1:19:191:19:21

I guess, at this point, I really hope that you get through.

1:19:211:19:24

OK.

1:19:241:19:25

It's time to find out how many stars you've got.

1:19:271:19:29

It's hard to gauge from those comments where we're going to go.

1:19:291:19:32

Just a reminder - the promises were made.

1:19:321:19:34

LAUGHTER

1:19:341:19:36

OK.

1:19:381:19:39

-No, seriously, the best of luck to you.

-Thank you.

1:19:401:19:42

LAUGHTER

1:19:421:19:43

Let's find out how Harry has been scored.

1:19:451:19:47

APPLAUSE, CHEERING

1:20:091:20:11

Put it back on, put it back on. Yeah. I'll chat to the judges.

1:20:251:20:28

There we go.

1:20:281:20:29

LAUGHTER

1:20:291:20:30

All right, there?

1:20:311:20:32

Amber, were you pleased with that result?

1:20:321:20:34

-I heard nothing.

-LAUGHTER

1:20:341:20:38

And saw everything.

1:20:381:20:39

CHEERING

1:20:391:20:42

And he still got a four.

1:20:421:20:44

Imagine, if I was listening, it would have been a five!

1:20:451:20:48

LAUGHTER

1:20:481:20:49

-All jokes aside, it was really good.

-Thank you.

1:20:501:20:53

Harry, what have you got to say to the judges?

1:20:551:20:57

Just thank you very much for your comments, and honestly,

1:20:571:20:59

thank you so much for putting me through. I will take it on board.

1:20:591:21:02

And I'll make sure the next performance, I come back stronger.

1:21:021:21:04

I know you guys hear it all the time, but I will, so that's that.

1:21:041:21:07

Let's hear it for Harry! Congratulations.

1:21:071:21:10

-Thank you very much.

-Take care. Bye-bye.

-Thank you.

1:21:101:21:13

There's one thing for sure -

1:21:161:21:17

we've got to have someone to lift the set.

1:21:171:21:19

To load out. There's got to be a load out.

1:21:191:21:21

-Someone's got to lift all that stuff.

-The speakers.

1:21:211:21:24

-Security, singer, dancer...

-Yeah.

1:21:241:21:27

And he said he can change light bulbs.

1:21:271:21:29

-A lot of lights in a theatre.

-AMBER:

-Resourceful.

1:21:291:21:32

A lot of lights.

1:21:321:21:33

16!

1:21:361:21:38

THEY CHEER

1:21:381:21:40

-It's been incredible, hasn't it?

-Yeah, it's been fun.

1:21:461:21:49

And you know what? If we feel like we get everybody out

1:21:491:21:52

and there's a few spaces missing,

1:21:521:21:54

-Martin, we're in.

-Yeah.

1:21:541:21:56

-# Ah... #

-# Yeah... #

1:21:591:22:01

You are freaking incredible.

1:22:011:22:03

-# Ah... #

-# Ah-ah.... #

1:22:031:22:05

Rocked that audience.

1:22:051:22:07

# Ah... #

1:22:071:22:08

CHEERING

1:22:081:22:10

# A-ah... #

1:22:121:22:13

Absolutely outstanding.

1:22:131:22:15

-# Ooh... #

-# Aah... #

1:22:151:22:16

Man, you threw everything at that.

1:22:161:22:18

Dude, you flipped on your head!

1:22:201:22:22

I got my scoring wrong. I should have given you a five.

1:22:291:22:32
