GRAHAM: It's week four of Let It Shine.

0:00:040:00:05

How did I get here? 25 years to this.

0:00:080:00:10

-MEL:

-Well, Gary, you did say you wanted to find singers, dancers,

0:00:100:00:13

and boys, oozing that boyband magic, to be in a stage show, yeah?

0:00:130:00:17

-Yeah.

-Anyway, onwards.

0:00:170:00:19

Tonight, our remaining auditionees are ready to put on a show...

0:00:200:00:23

You are freaking incredible.

0:00:240:00:26

As they do their best to show their potential...

0:00:260:00:29

Oh.

0:00:290:00:30

..and charm their way into our judges' hearts.

0:00:300:00:32

That is the man we are looking for.

0:00:320:00:34

It's the last chance to reach that all-important score...

0:00:340:00:37

..of 15 stars or more.

0:00:390:00:41

I'm worried for you.

0:00:410:00:42

So, all bets are off...

0:00:420:00:43

-It's weird.

-It's uncanny.

0:00:430:00:46

By the end of tonight, we will reveal who's through to perform

0:00:460:00:49

with five huge names in next week's collaboration extravaganza.

0:00:490:00:53

Could it be magic?

0:00:540:00:56

Yes.

0:00:560:00:57

I don't know what the question was, but, yes.

0:00:570:00:59

Hello, and welcome to the last of the Let It Shine auditions.

0:01:280:01:31

Hang on, I cannot bear the thought of life

0:01:310:01:33

without seeing Martin Kemp on a weekly basis, Graham.

0:01:330:01:35

-Don't worry, Kempo's going nowhere.

-Oh, thank goodness.

0:01:350:01:38

Somewhere in this room could be

0:01:380:01:40

the five guys who are going to win this show

0:01:400:01:42

and that role of a boyband in a nationwide touring musical,

0:01:420:01:45

where they'll get to perform the songs of some little band called...

0:01:450:01:48

Oh, what is it? Take That, or something?

0:01:480:01:50

Our auditionees need to be able to convince a musical theatre audience

0:01:520:01:55

that they're a member of a proper boyband.

0:01:550:01:58

The prize is a real job, so these guys need to be incredible.

0:01:580:02:03

Their job in this musical is enormous.

0:02:050:02:08

It's not just one night a week.

0:02:080:02:09

This is eight shows a week. It's big.

0:02:090:02:12

We've got one day left and we've already put amazing people through.

0:02:140:02:19

So, Gary, what is it you want?

0:02:190:02:20

I want to be entertained.

0:02:200:02:22

Entertain me.

0:02:220:02:24

We don't ask for much(!)

0:02:240:02:25

MUSIC: Lose Yourself by Eminem

0:02:250:02:27

So, the studio's set, the Manchester audience are in

0:02:270:02:30

and Gary B and Spandau Ballet's Martin Kemp are taking their seats.

0:02:300:02:34

It seems like today, it's time to get serious.

0:02:340:02:37

MUSIC: Bang Bang # Batman Robin it

0:02:370:02:38

# Bang, bang, cocking it Queen Nicki dominant, prominent

0:02:380:02:41

# It's me, Jessie, and Ari If they test me, they sorry. #

0:02:410:02:43

# A to the N to the G to the

0:02:470:02:49

-# Uh

-Baby

0:02:490:02:50

# B to the A to the N to the G, to the hey

0:02:500:02:53

# See anybody could be good to you

0:02:530:02:55

# You need a bad girl to blow your mind... #

0:02:550:02:58

So, as Dannii and Glee star Amber Riley make their way

0:02:580:03:01

to the studio, backstage, the boys are limbering up.

0:03:010:03:04

Meet 17-year-old Callum Howells.

0:03:070:03:09

He's our small-town boy,

0:03:090:03:11

who's already got a big passion for performing on the stage.

0:03:110:03:14

Obviously, they're looking for the vocals. We know that.

0:03:140:03:17

But it's also about how you... How you move, how you do those...

0:03:170:03:21

-Exactly, yeah.

-Is that a move?

0:03:210:03:22

-I didn't really know. It's something from the '70s, probably.

-Yeah.

0:03:220:03:25

We call it, in Wales, the Rhondda two-step.

0:03:250:03:27

The Rhondda two-step! That one.

0:03:270:03:30

Yeah, that's it.

0:03:300:03:31

Are you going to bring breaking out your Rhondda two-step?

0:03:310:03:34

Oh, definitely, absolutely.

0:03:340:03:35

Just like, give a bit of a swivel.

0:03:350:03:37

APPLAUSE

0:03:430:03:45

Hi, how are you?

0:03:500:03:51

-I'm really good, thank you. How are you?

-I'm good. What's your name?

0:03:510:03:54

My name is Callum Howells. I'm 17 years old

0:03:540:03:56

and I'm from South Wales.

0:03:560:03:58

APPLAUSE

0:03:580:04:00

So, tell me a little bit about yourself.

0:04:000:04:02

I go to a school called Treorchy Comprehensive School

0:04:020:04:04

and I'm head boy.

0:04:040:04:05

APPLAUSE

0:04:050:04:07

OK. American. What does that mean?

0:04:070:04:10

So, it's like,

0:04:100:04:11

there's a country next to England...

0:04:110:04:13

LAUGHTER

0:04:130:04:14

..and that's where I'm from.

0:04:140:04:16

No, no, what does head boy mean?

0:04:160:04:19

LAUGHTER

0:04:190:04:20

I... I...

0:04:240:04:26

-Sorry.

-That was great, though.

0:04:270:04:29

What does head boy mean?

0:04:290:04:30

-So, you know how there's, like, a headteacher?

-Uh-huh.

0:04:300:04:33

Amongst, like, the students, there's a head boy.

0:04:330:04:36

So, that's, like, me, basically.

0:04:360:04:38

OK, OK, cool.

0:04:380:04:39

So, what you have to do to be the head boy?

0:04:390:04:42

I had to just write a letter,

0:04:420:04:44

basically outlining why I think I should be head boy,

0:04:440:04:47

and I said, "Please can I be head boy?"

0:04:470:04:49

And my teacher said, "Yeah, you can be head boy."

0:04:490:04:51

LAUGHTER

0:04:510:04:52

All right! Sounds easy enough!

0:04:520:04:53

APPLAUSE

0:04:530:04:55

All right, well, I'm excited to hear you sing.

0:04:550:04:58

So, let's give it a go.

0:04:580:04:59

-Good luck.

-Thank you so much.

0:04:590:05:01

# You say

0:05:160:05:17

# The price of my love's not a price that you're willing to pay

0:05:190:05:23

# You cry

0:05:240:05:26

# In your tea, that you hurl in the sea when you see me go by

0:05:260:05:32

# Why so sad?

0:05:320:05:33

# Remember we made an arrangement when you went away

0:05:350:05:39

# Now you're making me mad

0:05:390:05:43

# Remember despite our estrangement

0:05:430:05:47

# I'm your man

0:05:470:05:49

APPLAUSE

0:06:530:06:55

Good job, good job!

0:06:590:07:01

Judges, will you enter your scores, please?

0:07:010:07:04

Now, an unusual song choice. So we'll go to the judges.

0:07:040:07:07

Gary, are you familiar with that musical?

0:07:070:07:09

-That was Hamilton, yeah?

-Yeah, yeah.

-Have you seen it?

0:07:090:07:11

I haven't seen it, cos it hasn't come across yet,

0:07:110:07:13

but I've just been watching videos online.

0:07:130:07:15

Oh.

0:07:150:07:17

Callum, well done. Very, very confident audition.

0:07:170:07:20

I've got to be honest,

0:07:200:07:21

it's just leaning towards the side of musical theatre,

0:07:210:07:25

-where I don't want our show to be.

-Yeah.

0:07:250:07:28

But I think you have the potential to change that.

0:07:280:07:31

I want you to move your voice

0:07:310:07:33

-from being a musical voice into a pop voice.

-Yeah.

0:07:330:07:36

But you have a great technique, you've got very good pitch,

0:07:360:07:39

good ears, and I think you'll be able to do that.

0:07:390:07:41

APPLAUSE

0:07:410:07:43

Cos, Martin, at 17, presumably his voice can go anywhere?

0:07:430:07:46

It can go anywhere, absolutely.

0:07:460:07:47

For me, it didn't touch me here.

0:07:470:07:49

It didn't get me in the heart.

0:07:490:07:51

I just didn't think there was enough of your own personality in the song.

0:07:510:07:55

But, listen, you look great, you're a fabulous kid,

0:07:550:07:58

and I'm sure you've got a long way to go, whatever you do.

0:07:580:08:01

APPLAUSE

0:08:010:08:02

Nice comments.

0:08:020:08:04

I don't know how that's going to translate into stars.

0:08:040:08:07

The judges don't know the total number of stars.

0:08:070:08:09

We don't know. You don't know. We're about to find out.

0:08:090:08:11

The magic number is 15.

0:08:110:08:13

Let's find out how Callum has been scored.

0:08:130:08:16

Come on! Here we go!

0:08:300:08:32

CHEERING

0:08:360:08:38

Well done!

0:08:420:08:43

Well done! I'm so happy for you.

0:08:440:08:48

Amber Riley, she liked it! Five out of five.

0:08:480:08:51

I did. I needed you to go through.

0:08:510:08:54

Even though it was very musical theatre,

0:08:540:08:56

I think you have the acting ability and the dramatic ability,

0:08:560:08:59

so I know that you can transform, so I needed you to go through.

0:08:590:09:02

Thank you.

0:09:020:09:03

APPLAUSE

0:09:030:09:04

Dannii, a high mark from you.

0:09:040:09:06

I mean, extraordinary poise for a 17-year-old.

0:09:060:09:08

I gave you four, because the voice is incredible.

0:09:080:09:12

What I would want to see you do,

0:09:120:09:15

you've got to be a believable boyband member within this show.

0:09:150:09:19

Yeah.

0:09:190:09:20

Just a little thing, Callum, just to take away with you,

0:09:200:09:22

is it might just be worth, as an exercise,

0:09:220:09:25

just go and sing some music you wouldn't normally have sung.

0:09:250:09:28

Go and sing some rock music. Go and sing some pop.

0:09:280:09:30

-I think it could really help you.

-Yeah.

0:09:300:09:32

APPLAUSE

0:09:320:09:34

I absolutely understand what you're saying, 100%.

0:09:340:09:36

Thank you so much.

0:09:360:09:37

Callum, I'm so pleased you're through. We'll see you again.

0:09:370:09:40

It's Callum, everybody!

0:09:400:09:42

Good job, buddy. Good job. Well done.

0:09:420:09:43

At this moment, for me,

0:09:460:09:47

-it didn't work.

-Yeah.

0:09:470:09:49

All he needs to do is get around the other guys

0:09:490:09:51

and pick up some bad habits.

0:09:510:09:52

-That's it.

-Yeah, probably!

-That's it.

0:09:520:09:54

-MEL:

-'So, Callum's through.

0:09:560:09:57

Still, would have liked to have seen that Rhondda two-step, though.

0:09:580:10:01

Don't worry, Mel.

0:10:010:10:02

Later tonight, we'll see all the successful auditionees

0:10:020:10:04

put through their dancing paces.

0:10:040:10:06

After all, we all know there's more to boybands than vocals alone.

0:10:060:10:09

Just ask our next auditionee.

0:10:120:10:14

MUSIC: Sing by Ed Sheeran

0:10:140:10:15

It's 18-year-old Scott Macaulay.

0:10:150:10:17

He's brought his guitar along, and he's not afraid to use it.

0:10:170:10:20

Well, maybe he's a bit afraid.

0:10:220:10:24

It's nerve-wrecking out there, guys.

0:10:240:10:26

APPLAUSE

0:10:320:10:33

Hey, there.

0:10:410:10:42

What's your name?

0:10:420:10:44

I'm Scott Macaulay. I'm from Belfast in Northern Ireland.

0:10:440:10:46

APPLAUSE

0:10:460:10:48

So, have you performed much?

0:10:500:10:51

70 gigs this year.

0:10:510:10:53

-70?

-Yeah, 70, yeah.

0:10:530:10:55

So, you're away on the road, right?

0:10:550:10:57

I just finished the boats, you know, the ferries,

0:10:570:11:00

from Belfast to Scotland and Liverpool.

0:11:000:11:02

That was a really cool experience.

0:11:020:11:03

We were, like, playing, and you were like, woo...

0:11:030:11:05

You know, all over the place.

0:11:050:11:06

LAUGHTER

0:11:060:11:08

I know that ferry. It's really choppy, isn't it?

0:11:080:11:10

Yeah, the first time, I went

0:11:100:11:11

and I was seasick and I had to run to the toilet.

0:11:110:11:13

LAUGHTER

0:11:130:11:15

Have you got any family here with you?

0:11:150:11:16

Yeah, I've got my mum, my dad and my girlfriend.

0:11:160:11:18

Hang on. Hang on.

0:11:180:11:20

A green apple.

0:11:200:11:21

That stops you from being seasick.

0:11:210:11:24

LAUGHTER

0:11:240:11:25

-I haven't heard that before.

-Did you know that?

-No, neither have I.

0:11:250:11:28

Oh, yeah. It is. It's a green apple.

0:11:280:11:30

Anyway, onwards.

0:11:300:11:31

LAUGHTER

0:11:310:11:33

All right. You ready for this, today?

0:11:330:11:34

Yeah, I'm really ready, I'm really excited.

0:11:340:11:36

After 70 gigs, I hope you are.

0:11:360:11:38

-Well, good luck.

-Cheers.

0:13:340:13:36

APPLAUSE

0:13:380:13:40

Scott, everybody!

0:13:410:13:43

Wow.

0:13:430:13:44

Congratulations. Well done.

0:13:450:13:48

After a car ferry, this is quite nice.

0:13:480:13:50

Yeah, it's pretty good!

0:13:500:13:52

Dannii?

0:13:520:13:53

OK, the strange thing is, you seem like the coolest,

0:13:530:13:56

most accomplished solo singer-songwriter.

0:13:560:14:00

And I'm like, what is you want to do,

0:14:000:14:02

coming to audition here

0:14:020:14:05

and to be in the show as part of a group?

0:14:050:14:08

Like...

0:14:080:14:09

Seriously, you're really good.

0:14:090:14:12

I'm just working out how to fit you into this.

0:14:120:14:15

Well, I mean, I've always loved to be in a band, you know,

0:14:150:14:17

I really would love to do that.

0:14:170:14:19

APPLAUSE

0:14:190:14:20

Martin, do you agree with Dannii?

0:14:200:14:23

I absolutely agree with Dannii.

0:14:230:14:24

It was my first thought, that you're such a solo man.

0:14:240:14:28

It just does worry me, you know.

0:14:280:14:30

When you usually have five boys in the band,

0:14:300:14:32

there's always one that wants to go solo.

0:14:320:14:34

LAUGHTER

0:14:340:14:36

So...

0:14:380:14:40

Listen, listen, I have it in my band, as well, don't worry about it.

0:14:400:14:43

LAUGHTER

0:14:430:14:44

For people at home, though, are you sort of saying

0:14:440:14:47

he's too good to be in the band? Is that...?

0:14:470:14:49

No, he's...

0:14:490:14:50

Personality's good. He stands there like a solo singer.

0:14:500:14:54

He doesn't stand there and hit me in the face like a member of a band.

0:14:540:14:57

-LAUGHING:

-I'm really confused by both of those comments.

0:14:570:15:00

Because if somebody shines onstage like a star,

0:15:000:15:03

you would WANT them to be a part of your production, wouldn't you?

0:15:030:15:06

I'm not saying I wouldn't want them to.

0:15:060:15:08

It's whether or not they would want to.

0:15:080:15:10

Well, he does. He's here!

0:15:100:15:12

LAUGHTER

0:15:120:15:14

APPLAUSE

0:15:140:15:16

OK. So here's the moment of truth.

0:15:170:15:20

The judges scored you right after you performed, OK?

0:15:200:15:24

But right now, nobody, including the judges,

0:15:240:15:26

know the total number of stars you've got. All right?

0:15:260:15:30

Five from each judge, maximum 20,

0:15:300:15:32

-you've got to get 15 if you're going through to the next stage.

-OK.

0:15:320:15:36

-Best of luck to you.

-Cheers.

0:15:360:15:38

Let's find out how Scott has been scored.

0:15:380:15:40

CHEERING

0:15:580:16:00

Yes!

0:16:000:16:01

Oh!

0:16:050:16:06

19! You got 19!

0:16:060:16:09

Wow!

0:16:090:16:11

-Oh, my God!

-I know!

0:16:120:16:14

Five out of five from Amber Riley? Very nice.

0:16:150:16:18

Yeah, I thought that you were incredible.

0:16:180:16:20

And I'm glad that I gave you five.

0:16:200:16:22

-They made me really nervous.

-Me, too.

0:16:220:16:24

I needed you to get through.

0:16:240:16:25

LAUGHTER

0:16:250:16:26

Me, too.

0:16:260:16:27

Thank you so much, again. Like, I can't believe it.

0:16:270:16:30

Thank you so, so much.

0:16:300:16:31

-DANNII:

-It's like...

0:16:310:16:32

APPLAUSE

0:16:320:16:34

You're so good at what you do, you don't know it.

0:16:360:16:39

And you could do it on your own.

0:16:390:16:42

But boy, if you're in this group,

0:16:420:16:44

the boys have got a lot to live up to.

0:16:440:16:47

-Well, whatever happens... SCOTT:

-Thank you.

0:16:470:16:49

Whatever happens, I think from now on,

0:16:490:16:52

you'll be a stranger to the smell of vomit on a car ferry.

0:16:520:16:55

LAUGHTER

0:16:550:16:56

Huge congratulations to Scott, everybody!

0:16:560:16:58

Thank you. Thank you.

0:16:580:16:59

-He was great, wasn't he?

-Great.

0:17:030:17:05

He made me close my eyes and I was swaying a little bit.

0:17:050:17:08

-In a good way, in a good way.

-In a good way. Very good way.

0:17:090:17:12

-Yeah, not like...

-SHE IMITATES SNORING

0:17:120:17:14

No, no, no.

0:17:140:17:15

19 stars!

0:17:160:17:18

APPLAUSE

0:17:180:17:19

So, do you know what Gary Barlow's favourite hobby is?

0:17:290:17:32

No idea.

0:17:320:17:33

Apart from being in Take That, obviously.

0:17:330:17:35

That's a big, long-standing hobby of his.

0:17:350:17:38

No, do you know what he loves to do?

0:17:380:17:40

He loves to turn up uninvited

0:17:400:17:42

and surprise somebody.

0:17:420:17:44

"Why?" I hear you ask.

0:17:440:17:47

To invite them to audition for this show.

0:17:470:17:49

-Did you know that?

-No.

-Were you interested?

0:17:510:17:53

HE LAUGHS

0:17:560:17:57

Look forward to our chat again soon.

0:17:570:17:59

Last week, the Barlow-mobile took the A5 to Anglesey.

0:17:590:18:03

I'm here for Dion?

0:18:030:18:05

THEY CHEER

0:18:050:18:07

Will you come and perform for us on the Let It Shine stage?

0:18:070:18:10

Yeah, definitely.

0:18:100:18:11

THEY CHEER

0:18:110:18:13

This week, two more unsuspecting victims

0:18:130:18:16

are due for a surprise visit from GB.

0:18:160:18:18

So where are we heading first?

0:18:180:18:20

SLOW VIOLIN MUSIC

0:18:200:18:22

Ah, the green and pleasant lands of Essex.

0:18:240:18:27

We're in the suburbs and it's just a normal day on a normal street...

0:18:290:18:33

..where we're crammed into an unmarked vehicle on a stakeout,

0:18:360:18:39

waiting for Luke Stanley to come home.

0:18:390:18:41

As I said, "normal".

0:18:410:18:43

Oh, hello, here he comes.

0:18:430:18:44

Budding musician Luke works nights

0:18:460:18:48

as a support technician for London Underground.

0:18:480:18:50

Luke has been singing for quite some time.

0:18:520:18:54

The neighbours hear him singing in the shower,

0:18:540:18:56

and they have a laugh and joke to me about.

0:18:560:18:58

He does sing quite often, down the tunnels.

0:18:580:19:00

# Give a little time to me

0:19:000:19:03

# Or burn this out

0:19:030:19:04

# We'll play hide and seek

0:19:040:19:07

# We turn this around

0:19:070:19:08

# All I want is the taste your lips allow... #

0:19:080:19:12

He just needs a bit of a push.

0:19:120:19:13

But he has the bare essentials of what we're looking for.

0:19:130:19:17

The main thing is, we've got to get him from his house onto that stage.

0:19:170:19:22

So while dad Ray deals with the washing,

0:19:220:19:25

we've hijacked their garden shed

0:19:250:19:26

and installed hidden cameras everywhere

0:19:260:19:28

to give Luke the surprise of his life in his own front room.

0:19:280:19:31

Ray's looking perfectly relaxed about the situation.

0:19:330:19:36

Right, here we go.

0:19:360:19:37

Now, hang on, do those two always coordinate outfits?

0:19:390:19:42

Hello, boys. Hello!

0:19:420:19:44

After a snack, and a very near miss for our cameras,

0:19:440:19:47

it's time to take the dogs for their walk.

0:19:470:19:50

Followed by our intrepid team, of course.

0:19:510:19:54

Here they come.

0:19:540:19:56

Ray, what are you doing?

0:20:000:20:02

You'd better get back. Gary's not far away.

0:20:020:20:04

Game on.

0:20:070:20:09

It was Ray's birthday yesterday, so back at the house,

0:20:090:20:12

friends and family are popping in to celebrate, including Luke's nan.

0:20:120:20:16

She's in on it, too.

0:20:160:20:17

It's unbelievable. Spy in the sky.

0:20:190:20:22

SHE LAUGHS

0:20:220:20:23

Little does Luke know,

0:20:240:20:25

a certain someone's about to join the shindig.

0:20:250:20:28

This is it. This is it.

0:20:290:20:31

This is amazing.

0:20:330:20:35

Nan's made herself comfy and she's requested a song.

0:20:350:20:38

# Pearly whites

0:20:390:20:41

# Just a jack-knife

0:20:410:20:44

# Has old MacHeath, babe... #

0:20:440:20:48

Oh, Gary's up! We are go for Gary.

0:20:480:20:50

# With his teeth, babe

0:20:500:20:52

# Da, da

0:20:520:20:54

# Scarlet billows

0:20:540:20:56

# Start to spread. #

0:20:560:20:58

Oh, my God.

0:20:580:20:59

Hello, Nan. Luke.

0:20:590:21:01

EXCITED SHOUTING

0:21:010:21:03

Hello, mate.

0:21:030:21:05

Nice to meet you.

0:21:050:21:08

-Nice to meet you. How are you doing?

-Yeah, good.

0:21:080:21:11

I don't know if you knew, but your little shed back there,

0:21:110:21:13

I've been sat listening to you sing.

0:21:130:21:15

LAUGHTER

0:21:150:21:17

That's embarrassing.

0:21:170:21:19

And you sound pretty good!

0:21:190:21:21

I'm looking for very talented people.

0:21:210:21:24

Will you please come and sing in front of our beautiful audience

0:21:240:21:27

and show us how good you are?

0:21:270:21:28

-Yeah, definitely.

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

0:21:280:21:31

CHEERING

0:21:310:21:33

Brilliant. Brilliant.

0:21:330:21:35

I need...or something.

0:21:350:21:36

I don't know what to say. I don't what to do.

0:21:360:21:39

I've gone white in the face. I'm sweating.

0:21:390:21:41

Can you pinch me, Nan? Just quickly.

0:21:410:21:43

LAUGHTER

0:21:430:21:44

Yeah, this is real. Yeah.

0:21:440:21:45

My dad believes in me. My nan believes in me.

0:21:450:21:47

Here, remember.

0:21:470:21:49

I'm your agent.

0:21:490:21:50

It's my job, now, to go out and prove to them that I can do it.

0:21:500:21:54

APPLAUSE, CHEERING

0:22:040:22:06

Now, this is Luke, everybody.

0:22:150:22:17

How are you?

0:22:170:22:18

Yeah, good, thanks.

0:22:180:22:19

-Great. Now, your dad must be here. Ray?

-Hi, Gary.

0:22:190:22:22

-How are you?

-Yeah, I'm fine, yeah.

0:22:220:22:25

So, what did you think when Gary turned up?

0:22:250:22:27

My mouth was dry, I was like,

0:22:270:22:28

"No, it's not Gary Barlow in our living room, surely."

0:22:280:22:30

LAUGHTER

0:22:300:22:31

So, I want to say best of luck.

0:22:310:22:33

Oh, yeah, just one more thing.

0:22:330:22:34

Martin, I spoke to my nan

0:22:340:22:36

and she really fancies you.

0:22:360:22:38

LAUGHTER

0:22:380:22:40

APPLAUSE

0:22:400:22:42

See, Gary, one day, this will happen to you, when people say,

0:22:440:22:47

"My nan fancies you."

0:22:470:22:48

LAUGHTER

0:22:480:22:50

-Well, Luke, good luck from us all.

-Cheers.

0:22:520:22:55

# O-oh. #

0:24:360:24:38

APPLAUSE

0:24:390:24:41

Let's hear it for Luke, everybody!

0:24:440:24:47

-Great song, Luke.

-Thank you.

-Seriously, well done.

0:24:480:24:50

Congratulations.

0:24:500:24:51

Judges, please put in your score.

0:24:510:24:53

Hearing you singing, there, you've got that voice,

0:24:550:24:57

-and you're doing the night shift on the Tube?

-I am, yeah.

0:24:570:25:00

Gary Barlow, what did you think?

0:25:000:25:03

So, Luke, you know, we knew there was going to be some nerves, today.

0:25:030:25:06

And there was a few notes here and there you missed.

0:25:060:25:08

But slowly, you peeled off the layers

0:25:080:25:11

and this butterfly emerged before us

0:25:110:25:13

and the end of the song was absolutely beautiful.

0:25:130:25:16

You've got a great tone.

0:25:160:25:17

Got ahead a few times, a little bit, on the track.

0:25:170:25:19

But again, I'm going to put that down to nerves.

0:25:190:25:21

You need to sort those nerves out very soon, but other than that,

0:25:210:25:25

I thought there's great, great potential here, so well done.

0:25:250:25:28

APPLAUSE

0:25:280:25:30

Amber?

0:25:330:25:35

It was a very contained performance,

0:25:350:25:37

I really wanted you to come out of your shell a little bit more.

0:25:370:25:42

And your nervousness, kind of, made me a little nervous,

0:25:420:25:45

so I'm just a little iffy about what are you going to do

0:25:450:25:48

when you get on a stage and it's thousands of people,

0:25:480:25:51

as opposed to the hundreds that are here right now?

0:25:510:25:54

All right. Let's find out how Luke has been scored!

0:25:540:25:57

CHEERING

0:26:200:26:23

15 it is, but that's all you need! You're through, you're through.

0:26:250:26:28

Oh, wow.

0:26:280:26:29

Congratulations.

0:26:290:26:32

Nan can still look Martin Kemp in the eye!

0:26:320:26:34

LAUGHTER

0:26:340:26:36

Dannii, four out of five for you. Great.

0:26:360:26:38

Yeah. I mean, you have such a natural ability,

0:26:380:26:42

it's now just learning the craft of being on stage

0:26:420:26:45

and being in the theatre. You'll be incredible.

0:26:450:26:48

And Martin, you're really encouraging.

0:26:480:26:50

Another four out of five?

0:26:500:26:51

Oh, absolutely. I really enjoyed the performance.

0:26:510:26:54

I... The thing you're lacking the most at the moment, for me,

0:26:540:26:57

is projection.

0:26:570:26:58

Your voice needs to go right to the back

0:26:580:27:01

and your emotion needs to go right to the back of the hall.

0:27:010:27:04

And once you conquer that, I think you've got a long way to go.

0:27:040:27:06

APPLAUSE

0:27:060:27:08

Ladies and gentlemen,

0:27:080:27:09

he's going through to the next stage. It's Luke!

0:27:090:27:11

CHEERING

0:27:110:27:12

Well done. Congratulations.

0:27:120:27:14

He actually doesn't really need to think about his voice that much.

0:27:160:27:18

He needs to concentrate on the rest.

0:27:180:27:20

-He does, yes.

-I mean, he's quite an effortless singer.

0:27:200:27:22

-It's the performance...

-It's the rest, yeah.

0:27:220:27:25

-I love a man who wears a shoe with no socks.

-OK.

0:27:300:27:33

Have you put...? I do.

0:27:330:27:35

Have you put... Have you put talc in there, my love?

0:27:350:27:38

No, I haven't.

0:27:380:27:39

APPLAUSE

0:27:400:27:42

It's our last audition show, so tonight's our last chance

0:27:420:27:46

to revel in the joy of our guest judge, Amber Riley.

0:27:460:27:49

# I couldn't ask for another... #

0:27:490:27:51

We rehearsed that for weeks.

0:27:510:27:53

# I couldn't ask for another. #

0:27:530:27:55

Loved it!

0:27:550:27:57

Have you heard Amber's voice?

0:27:570:27:58

# No, no, there's no way... #

0:27:580:28:01

The most incredible thing you will ever hear.

0:28:010:28:04

Now, she might be up to speed on what head boy means...

0:28:050:28:08

I know if I say something wrong,

0:28:080:28:09

you guys probably will just think I'm just American.

0:28:090:28:12

..but other things did get lost in translation.

0:28:120:28:16

Everyone's always asking, "You all right?"

0:28:160:28:18

Which I've learnt is, "Hello,"

0:28:180:28:20

-instead of, "Are you really OK?"

-SHE LAUGHS

0:28:200:28:22

Oh, right!

0:28:220:28:23

Then I started saying, "Yeah, you know, my back kind of hurts."

0:28:230:28:26

And the person's just standing there like,

0:28:260:28:28

"Oh, she's really going to tell me how she's doing."

0:28:280:28:30

I got it now. I just say, "Hi!"

0:28:300:28:33

# Let's get physical

0:28:340:28:36

# Physical. #

0:28:360:28:38

Well, Amber, prepare to greet our next boy,

0:28:380:28:39

professional dancer and personal trainer, Travis.

0:28:390:28:42

He might be just what the judges are looking for.

0:28:420:28:45

-In this kind of space...

-Yeah?

0:28:450:28:47

What would you do with the gang?

0:28:470:28:49

You can, like, use the stick, and stretch your arms.

0:28:490:28:51

-Stretching.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:28:510:28:53

And you can do it, perhaps, get some lunges.

0:28:530:28:55

-So, like, lunge.

-Oh, I love a lunge!

0:28:550:28:57

-Yeah!

-I love...

-And other leg.

0:28:570:28:58

-That's good. That's harder, isn't it?

-That's a lot harder.

0:28:580:29:01

Harder to do in heels, as well, Travis.

0:29:010:29:03

-Surprising...

-I can't get up, actually can't.

0:29:030:29:05

Slightly... Might need a little...

0:29:050:29:06

-Oh, thanks.

-There you go.

-Thanks very much.

0:29:060:29:09

MUSIC: Let's Dance by David Bowie

0:29:090:29:11

When he was about three,

0:29:110:29:13

he started off in a baby ballet class and tap,

0:29:130:29:15

and just went from strength to strength,

0:29:150:29:19

he just loved it.

0:29:190:29:21

Travis is in the gym pretty much every day.

0:29:210:29:23

He likes to look top-notch all the time.

0:29:230:29:27

When we're getting ready to go out,

0:29:270:29:28

I'll be the one to be ready first.

0:29:280:29:30

Then, he takes about ten more hours.

0:29:300:29:32

People tell me how... such a lovely lad he is,

0:29:340:29:37

and it's just the best feeling.

0:29:370:29:39

He's kind of been, like, something to look up to.

0:29:390:29:42

Such a focused young man.

0:29:420:29:45

He's, like, inspiration.

0:29:450:29:46

APPLAUSE

0:29:490:29:51

Yes, I say yes!

0:29:590:30:01

LAUGHTER

0:30:010:30:02

What's your name?

0:30:040:30:05

My name's Travis, I'm 19 and I'm from Mansfield.

0:30:050:30:08

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:30:080:30:09

Inside a band, what would you bring to it?

0:30:120:30:14

I'd hopefully bring, like, fun, energy, like, a really good vibe.

0:30:140:30:18

-You'll bring the chicks, as well?

-Yeah!

0:30:180:30:20

Thank you.

0:30:200:30:21

# Your love pours down on me

0:30:230:30:25

# Surrounds me like a waterfall

0:30:250:30:28

# And there's no stopping us right now

0:30:290:30:32

# I feel so close to you right now

0:30:330:30:36

CHEERING

0:30:390:30:41

# I feel so close to you right now

0:30:450:30:48

# It's a force field

0:30:480:30:52

# I wear my heart upon my sleeve

0:30:520:30:55

# Like a big deal... #

0:30:550:30:57

Come on, guys, just jump!

0:31:000:31:01

Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump!

0:31:010:31:03

AUDIENCE CLAPS ALONG

0:31:070:31:09

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:31:140:31:16

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:31:220:31:25

Travis, everybody!

0:31:250:31:27

Hiya!

0:31:270:31:28

-Eh, those were some moves, Travis!

-Thank you.

0:31:280:31:31

-Amber.

-Oh!

0:31:310:31:33

I wanted you to sound so great. I would have married you.

0:31:330:31:37

Oh!

0:31:370:31:39

No, the dancing was great.

0:31:390:31:41

You're great to look at, you have great energy, but I just,

0:31:410:31:45

vocally, it just wasn't there, and I really,

0:31:450:31:48

really wish that it was, but it wasn't.

0:31:480:31:50

-AUDIENCE:

-Whoa-a-a!

0:32:000:32:02

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:32:110:32:14

Aw!

0:32:140:32:15

-I'm sorry.

-It's OK.

-I'm sorry, Travis.

0:32:160:32:19

Just 11. Let's go to, Dannii. Just two?

0:32:190:32:22

-Very entertaining.

-Thank you.

0:32:220:32:24

Energetic. Everything you said it would be.

0:32:240:32:27

Vocally, missed the mark.

0:32:270:32:29

Amber, are you very sorry to be saying goodbye?

0:32:290:32:32

Yes, but I'll have this moment on television for the rest of my life.

0:32:320:32:36

LAUGHTER

0:32:360:32:37

Still to come tonight...

0:32:420:32:45

Graham and I count down the remaining contestants.

0:32:450:32:48

This is going to be tough.

0:32:480:32:49

-A big decision for the rest of their lives.

-Yup.

0:32:490:32:53

To get your hands on some backstage exclusives and find out how

0:32:530:32:56

the show's made, head to the website.

0:32:560:32:58

And whilst you're at it, why not follow us on social media?

0:32:580:33:01

You're not meant to see this! Cut!

0:33:040:33:06

27-year-old Alexis is a bit of a multitasker.

0:33:100:33:13

He'll sing for his supper and then give you a short back and sides.

0:33:130:33:16

From a very early age, he's been a performer.

0:33:190:33:22

Alexis has been in a few West End shows.

0:33:240:33:27

I think when he was in Dreamboats & Petticoats,

0:33:270:33:29

I saw the show 56 times.

0:33:290:33:33

He's always wanted to be a dad - always.

0:33:330:33:36

I mean, Zachary is a little cheeky munchkin.

0:33:360:33:38

And, Penny, just an absolute sweetheart.

0:33:380:33:40

They completely adore their dad.

0:33:400:33:43

I have a barbershop, so he works closely with me,

0:33:430:33:46

and it's actually served him very well, because, in the shows that

0:33:460:33:49

he's been in, he's often been appointed as company barber.

0:33:490:33:52

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:33:520:33:55

-Oh!

-Well, hello!

0:34:020:34:04

-Hello!

-I think we're already off to a great start.

0:34:060:34:09

That's it? Shall I go now? Is that it? Is that me done?

0:34:090:34:12

-What's your name?

-Alexis Gerred, I'm 27 and I'm from Kent.

0:34:120:34:15

All right! All right. Alexis, what do you do for a living?

0:34:150:34:18

For the last six, seven years,

0:34:180:34:20

-I've been a professional actor in musicals in and around the West End.

-AUDIENCE OOHS

0:34:200:34:23

Amazing, so, do you feel extra pressure being here,

0:34:230:34:26

since you've been on the West End?

0:34:260:34:28

I think the experience is great and, yeah,

0:34:280:34:29

I think it comes with a certain amount of pressure, but everyone's

0:34:290:34:32

here just to showcase talent and I'm as nervous as the rest of them.

0:34:320:34:35

-Is your family here today?

-My mum and dad are here somewhere.

0:34:350:34:37

-Don't do that! Don't do that!

-Aw, there's Mom and Dad.

0:34:370:34:40

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:34:400:34:41

Well, Alexis, are you ready?

0:34:430:34:46

-I think so.

-All right, well, we're ready for you. Let's go, good luck!

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:36:100:36:12

That is Alexis, everybody!

0:36:150:36:19

Judges, I would remind you to enter your scores now.

0:36:190:36:23

So, Alexis, how was that? Because you're in musicals all the time.

0:36:230:36:26

-Yeah.

-So, how was it just being yourself out here,

0:36:260:36:28

-performing to a crowd, working a crowd?

-Yeah, it's great.

0:36:280:36:31

I love doing that. I mean, I love being a character, as well,

0:36:310:36:34

but this is what I live for.

0:36:340:36:36

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:36:360:36:38

-Thank you very much!

-Let's go to Amber first.

0:36:380:36:40

-What did you think of Alexis?

-Oh, I loved it.

0:36:400:36:42

You are clearly comfortable on stage.

0:36:420:36:45

One thing that I love it is when someone uses all of their energy

0:36:450:36:49

to fill up a whole entire room. The crowd was rocking, right?

0:36:490:36:53

-You guys were rocking with him?

-CHEERING

0:36:530:36:55

And you have a great voice. Like, yeah, I loved it.

0:36:550:36:57

-Thank you very much.

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:36:570:36:59

Dannii, what did you think of Alexis?

0:36:590:37:01

Is it hot in here or is it just me?!

0:37:010:37:03

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:37:030:37:05

SHE MAKES SIZZLING NOISE

0:37:050:37:08

Um...seriously, though,

0:37:080:37:10

you definitely would work well with a team

0:37:100:37:13

and you can shine right out the front on your own.

0:37:130:37:16

Man, you've got skills on skills on skills on skills.

0:37:160:37:19

- That's what we're looking for. - Thank you so much.

0:37:190:37:21

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:37:210:37:24

OK, so, here's the thing, lovely comments, but now it's time

0:37:240:37:27

to find out how many stars you've been awarded. You ready for this?

0:37:270:37:29

-Thank you. Yeah, I think so!

-OK! Take a deep breath.

0:37:290:37:33

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

0:37:330:37:35

SWELL OF CHEERS

0:37:470:37:50

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:37:560:37:58

-18 stars for Alexis! Congratulations!

-Thank you.

0:38:050:38:08

-I'm so pleased for you.

-Thank you.

0:38:080:38:10

You're going through!

0:38:100:38:12

-Thank you so much.

-OK, eh,

0:38:120:38:14

Martin, four out of five.

0:38:140:38:16

-Why not the five?

-I think he was absolutely fantastic.

0:38:160:38:20

I think you could tell that you were in your happy place.

0:38:200:38:24

Because there's a certain thing that all the pros do,

0:38:240:38:26

when they stand on that audition square,

0:38:260:38:28

and it's, they stand there

0:38:280:38:30

and, a few seconds, before they're going to start singing,

0:38:300:38:33

they take a nice deep breath and they slow their whole body down.

0:38:330:38:36

I only gave a four, because I just want to leave

0:38:360:38:38

a little bit of room for the next round.

0:38:380:38:40

-But I knew you were going through!

-We'll see you in the next stage.

0:38:400:38:43

-Thank you very much.

-Alexis, everybody! There you go.

0:38:430:38:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:38:460:38:49

Wow!

0:38:500:38:52

-Yeah. Very good. Are you OK there, Dannii?

-SHE LAUGHS

0:38:540:38:59

-Um, yeah.

-I've never known Dannii so lost for words.

0:38:590:39:01

-AMBER:

-You really needed a fan!

-I've actually got sweaty palms.

0:39:010:39:04

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

0:39:040:39:07

CHEERING

0:39:110:39:13

The next round of the competition could see professionals,

0:39:150:39:17

like Alexis, perform in a group, alongside singers

0:39:170:39:20

with everyday jobs, like Luke.

0:39:200:39:21

Having a range of experience in a band is all part of the early

0:39:210:39:24

Take That story.

0:39:240:39:25

I was working in a bank at the time.

0:39:250:39:28

But I had to give it up. But my bank said,

0:39:280:39:30

"If ever you want to come back, you can still come back."

0:39:300:39:32

And I still remember that now. And I still sometimes think...

0:39:320:39:35

-Should I go back?!

-Should I go... Yeah!

-THEY LAUGH

0:39:350:39:38

Yeah!

0:39:380:39:39

-Have you ever been back into the bank...

-Yeah, I have.

0:39:390:39:42

-..just to say "hi"?

-I still bank with the same bank.

0:39:420:39:44

-Oh, do you?

-Yeah, yeah.

-Oh, that's sweet!

0:39:440:39:47

We're glad you stuck with it, Mark.

0:39:490:39:51

Now, there's no set formula for our final band,

0:39:510:39:54

but what are the judges' benchmarks when it comes to boybands?

0:39:540:39:57

-Tell us, Dannii, who were you a fan of growing up?

-Jackson 5.

0:39:570:40:01

# Oh, baby, give me one more chance... #

0:40:010:40:03

The music, the dance moves and the magic that was coming off them.

0:40:030:40:07

So, the Jacksons get a five from Dannii.

0:40:070:40:10

And what about you, Amber?

0:40:100:40:12

B2K. I completely lost my mind for them.

0:40:120:40:16

And I printed out their lyrics, I had their posters up,

0:40:160:40:19

I used to record myself on a cassette tape singing their songs

0:40:190:40:23

and mail it to them.

0:40:230:40:24

Yes, I know that that's crazy.

0:40:240:40:26

# Let's go crazy, crazy, crazy... #

0:40:270:40:29

Hang on, got to ask everyone.

0:40:290:40:31

OK, then, Gary, whose cassette was on your Walkman?

0:40:310:40:33

# Gold... #

0:40:330:40:35

In fact, he was in the boyband of my generation when I was a teenager.

0:40:350:40:39

I used to buy Spandau one week, Duran Duran the other week.

0:40:390:40:42

# This much is true... #

0:40:420:40:45

Was Spandau Ballet a boyband?

0:40:450:40:47

No. Definitely not.

0:40:490:40:51

20-year-old Robert Evans is hoping he's boyband material.

0:40:550:40:59

Luckily, he's got loads of experience performing.

0:40:590:41:01

The only problem is, it's mostly...

0:41:010:41:04

to farmyard animals.

0:41:040:41:06

Robert would always be singing around the farm.

0:41:100:41:13

You'd definitely hear him before you'd see Robert.

0:41:130:41:16

Sometimes, I have to tell him to be quiet

0:41:160:41:18

because he does it too much and it's annoying me.

0:41:180:41:20

Robert works as a cabinet-maker and he really enjoys his job.

0:41:200:41:26

Rob comes in at eight singing and he goes home at five singing.

0:41:260:41:29

I've had to issue ear defenders to all my staff.

0:41:290:41:31

We actually applied for Robert to go on the show without him knowing.

0:41:330:41:36

So, when he found out, I think he was a bit shocked and cross.

0:41:360:41:40

But...I reckon he was secretly happy.

0:41:400:41:43

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:41:450:41:48

-How are you doing?

-Yeah, very well. Very well, thank you.

0:41:540:41:56

-What's your name, please?

-Robert Evans.

0:41:560:41:58

-I'm 20 years old and I'm from mid Wales.

-Great.

0:41:580:42:01

Robert, what do you do for a living?

0:42:030:42:05

I work at a carpenters' workshop in the day

0:42:050:42:09

and then, at night, I go back home and help my dad and my brother

0:42:090:42:12

on our family farm.

0:42:120:42:13

Sheep and beef, it is. Sheep and cows.

0:42:130:42:15

-Give them a little song, now and again?

-Yeah.

0:42:150:42:18

Yeah, now and then, to keep myself company.

0:42:180:42:20

What's the animals' favourite song that you sing?

0:42:200:42:24

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep is pretty good.

0:42:240:42:26

-Well, listen, we can't wait to hear you sing. Good luck.

-Thank you.

0:42:320:42:35

# There's a calm surrender

0:42:550:42:59

# To the rush of day

0:42:590:43:02

# When the heat of the rolling wind

0:43:020:43:06

# Can be turned away

0:43:060:43:09

# An enchanted moment

0:43:100:43:14

# And it sees me through

0:43:140:43:17

# It's enough for this restless warrior

0:43:170:43:21

# Just to be with you

0:43:210:43:25

# And can you feel the love tonight?

0:43:250:43:32

# How it's laid to rest

0:43:330:43:39

# It's enough

0:43:410:43:43

# To make kings and vagabonds

0:43:430:43:48

# Believe the very best. #

0:43:480:43:55

Oh, let's hear it for Robert!

0:44:000:44:02

Well done, sir. Lovely to meet you.

0:44:020:44:05

-Martin Kemp.

-I really like your voice.

0:44:050:44:07

I think you've got a real possibility with it.

0:44:070:44:10

But you know, when I was at drama school, there was this saying

0:44:100:44:12

and it was the three Ps - practice, performance and passion.

0:44:120:44:18

And I think you lacked on two of those tonight.

0:44:180:44:21

Gary, what did you think?

0:44:210:44:22

I could have taken probably a bit more energy from you.

0:44:220:44:25

It was like something to wake everybody up.

0:44:250:44:27

But you do have a nice voice. I'm sort of somewhere in the middle.

0:44:270:44:31

OK, you know how this works.

0:44:310:44:33

We are about to find out how many stars you've got.

0:44:330:44:35

-I wish you well, Robert.

-Thank you.

0:44:350:44:37

Let's find out how Robert has been scored.

0:44:370:44:39

Oh...!

0:44:550:44:57

AUDIENCE BOOS 12 stars.

0:45:000:45:03

It's respectable. And listen to those boos.

0:45:030:45:05

That's what you want to take home. Dannii, just three out of five.

0:45:050:45:08

I mean, three isn't a terrible score.

0:45:080:45:10

You know what? You have a great voice. You really do.

0:45:100:45:13

What you need in theatre,

0:45:130:45:15

even if you're standing, singing,

0:45:150:45:18

still, there needs to be this energy

0:45:180:45:21

that is just pumping through your veins,

0:45:210:45:24

so that you move these people.

0:45:240:45:25

Amber, what did you think of Robert?

0:45:250:45:28

Oh, Robert, you were so sweet and endearing when you came out.

0:45:280:45:33

But you were just so nervous.

0:45:330:45:34

You were so nervous and so, like, in yourself,

0:45:340:45:38

you really weren't singing for the people that were here.

0:45:380:45:41

Just thanks ever so much for the opportunity. And, erm...

0:45:410:45:44

I'll do my best to carry on.

0:45:440:45:47

These people love you.

0:45:470:45:48

Give it up for Robert!

0:45:480:45:50

Look, it's really hard, you know,

0:45:530:45:55

if you've got to give a tough mark to somebody.

0:45:550:45:58

# More than words is

0:45:580:46:01

# All you have to do to make it real... #

0:46:010:46:06

Oh...!

0:46:080:46:09

You're aware that it's going to affect

0:46:100:46:12

the marking across the panel and their chance of getting through.

0:46:120:46:16

We never know what the other judges are scoring.

0:46:160:46:19

# I'm in love with you

0:46:190:46:21

# And all these little things

0:46:220:46:24

# You'll never love yourself half as much as I love you. #

0:46:240:46:31

Come on!

0:46:310:46:32

Oh...!

0:46:330:46:34

Which is why you really have to be confident

0:46:340:46:37

about what you felt about that performance.

0:46:370:46:40

There's been a couple of times when I've given them a high rating

0:46:400:46:43

and the other judges haven't.

0:46:430:46:45

Oh...!

0:46:450:46:47

And the 15th star doesn't light up for them.

0:46:470:46:50

And it's really gutting.

0:46:500:46:52

A no is hard. A no is hard to give and I'm sure a no is hard to take.

0:46:520:46:55

Come on...!

0:46:550:46:57

When that 15th star lights up, it's magic.

0:47:020:47:04

Yes! Come on!

0:47:050:47:07

Everybody's tense. The stars are lighting up

0:47:130:47:15

and you're waiting for that 15th one and then...there it goes.

0:47:150:47:19

Yes!

0:47:190:47:20

When I see someone's face light up...

0:47:250:47:27

Oh...!

0:47:270:47:29

..I watch their parents out in the audience and they're losing it.

0:47:300:47:33

It just... It makes me so happy.

0:47:350:47:38

Our next auditionee, 23-year-old Sam Glen, is feeling the pressure.

0:47:390:47:43

He's kept his singing voice under wraps until today.

0:47:430:47:47

Sam's had a really successful career in acting.

0:47:490:47:52

He played a character called Slim in World's End on CBBC.

0:47:520:47:56

Classic!

0:47:560:47:59

If you see the pictures of what he used to look like

0:47:590:48:01

and what he looks like now, you'd be gobsmacked.

0:48:010:48:03

I saw him and I was like... "You're like a different person!

0:48:030:48:07

"Where have you gone?"

0:48:070:48:08

Sam's never really sang before.

0:48:080:48:11

He sang in the bedroom to me.

0:48:110:48:13

I was like, "Wow!" I cried.

0:48:130:48:15

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:48:170:48:19

Hello.

0:48:230:48:25

-Well, you had a great applause when you came out.

-Wow!

0:48:250:48:28

-What's your name?

-My name's Sam Glen.

-Hi, Sam Glen.

0:48:280:48:31

-How are you?

-I'm nervous, but I'm very well.

0:48:310:48:34

OK, take a deep breath. Go...

0:48:340:48:37

and exhale. There you go.

0:48:370:48:38

-So, Sam, what do you do?

-I'm actually an actor.

0:48:380:48:42

That's a big statement, isn't it? I've just done bits and bobs.

0:48:420:48:46

I've just always really acted, never really sung before, so...

0:48:460:48:48

So, how long has it been since you started singing?

0:48:480:48:51

Well, I've always been a bedroom singer.

0:48:510:48:53

It's really funny, actually...

0:48:530:48:55

-Hello?

-Clarify! Clarify!

0:48:550:48:58

Stop there!

0:48:580:48:59

Erm, yeah, like, literally, my mum didn't know I could sing

0:48:590:49:02

-until three weeks ago.

-Wow!

0:49:020:49:05

So, you guys are ready for him, right?

0:49:050:49:07

-AUDIENCE:

-Yeah!

0:49:070:49:09

Good luck.

0:49:090:49:11

# I thought I saw a man brought to life

0:49:220:49:26

# He was warm, he came around

0:49:270:49:30

# He was dignified

0:49:300:49:32

# He showed me what it was to cry

0:49:330:49:38

# But you couldn't be that man that I adored

0:49:380:49:42

# You don't seem to know or seem to care

0:49:430:49:46

# What your heart is for

0:49:460:49:48

# Cos I don't know him any more

0:49:490:49:52

# There's nothing where he used to lie

0:49:520:49:55

# The conversation has run dry

0:49:550:49:58

# But that's what's going on

0:49:580:50:01

# I'm cold and I am shamed

0:50:090:50:12

0:50:180:50:23

# There's nothing where he used to lie

0:50:250:50:28

# My inspiration has run dry

0:50:280:50:31

# That's what's going on

0:51:040:51:09

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:51:090:51:11

Wow!

0:51:130:51:15

Let's hear it for Sam, everybody!

0:51:150:51:17

Well done. You all liked it.

0:51:180:51:21

CHEERING

0:51:210:51:23

So you said you were a bit nervous. How do you feel now?

0:51:230:51:25

This is just like leather right now.

0:51:250:51:28

Let's go to the judges. Amber?

0:51:280:51:30

You're a fibber. You've done this before.

0:51:300:51:33

-I swear, I promise, I haven't.

-I really did enjoy it.

0:51:330:51:36

I definitely feel like vocal training

0:51:360:51:38

is probably something that you should look into.

0:51:380:51:40

But I really enjoyed the theatrics.

0:51:400:51:42

I liked the faces that you were making.

0:51:420:51:44

-And you were trying to look at the audience, so...

-Cheers.

0:51:440:51:47

All right, thanks, Amber. Martin, what did you think?

0:51:470:51:49

Do you know what I saw?

0:51:490:51:51

I saw loads of drama techniques coming out in you tonight.

0:51:510:51:55

And so often, I see people going up for musical theatre auditions

0:51:550:51:59

that don't do that.

0:51:590:52:01

They just concentrate on their voice, "Oh, look at me singing."

0:52:010:52:04

But you didn't tonight.

0:52:040:52:05

You used what you knew and that was your strength.

0:52:050:52:07

-And I thought that was fantastic.

-Thank you.

-Wow.

0:52:070:52:10

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:52:100:52:12

And I'm guessing your family over there must be so proud.

0:52:120:52:16

All right, Sam, this is it. Let's find out how Sam has been scored.

0:52:160:52:20

Oh...!

0:52:390:52:40

Another one!

0:52:420:52:43

15!

0:52:430:52:45

Fabulous!

0:52:460:52:48

Well done, sir.

0:52:480:52:49

Thank you.

0:52:490:52:51

Oh...

0:52:510:52:52

Thank you so much.

0:52:520:52:54

I'm so happy for you, Sam. That's brilliant.

0:52:540:52:56

Thank you.

0:52:560:52:57

Right across the board fours.

0:52:590:53:01

They all liked you.

0:53:020:53:04

-Gary, what did you think?

-Sam, promise me something,

0:53:040:53:07

that you'll never start an audition again by saying,

0:53:070:53:10

"I'm not the best singer, but..."

0:53:100:53:12

Because actually, you've got a great little voice under there.

0:53:120:53:15

You really have.

0:53:150:53:17

And like Amber said, you know,

0:53:180:53:19

there's moments which were a little bit out of control,

0:53:190:53:22

but I thought, in general,

0:53:220:53:23

it was really animated and very entertaining.

0:53:230:53:26

-Thank you.

-I thought you did a very nice audition. Thank you.

0:53:260:53:28

Thank you.

0:53:280:53:30

Thank you so much.

0:53:300:53:31

These are good things. They're saying nice things to you.

0:53:310:53:35

Dannii, what would you say to him?

0:53:350:53:36

I'm absolutely confused why you've waited so long to sing

0:53:360:53:40

and why it was just the acting up until now.

0:53:400:53:43

Do you know what? It's such a cheesy answer,

0:53:430:53:45

but when you act, you're somebody else.

0:53:450:53:47

And, like, for me to sing here, this is me kind of exposed.

0:53:470:53:49

So, yeah, it's kind of a big thing for me to expose myself like that.

0:53:490:53:53

Listen, Sam, we're going to see you again. Huge congratulations to you.

0:53:530:53:56

-I'm so pleased for you. Sam, everybody!

-Thank you so much.

0:53:560:53:59

He played to his strengths.

0:54:060:54:08

And that's what a lot of people don't do and they get it wrong.

0:54:080:54:10

But he's got a big voice.

0:54:100:54:11

I think it's bigger than he probably thinks that it is.

0:54:110:54:14

He just doesn't know how to use it yet.

0:54:140:54:16

It's kind of cool to listen to that, though.

0:54:160:54:19

I love it when someone's not quite grown into their voice.

0:54:190:54:22

You only know it's going to be good ahead.

0:54:220:54:24

-He's only just come out of his bedroom.

-That's right, yeah!

0:54:240:54:27

-I bet your mum's very proud.

-Yeah.

0:54:270:54:28

It sounded beautiful, and a great choice of song.

0:54:280:54:31

One of my favourite songs. When you started singing that... Beautiful.

0:54:310:54:34

-Really well done.

-Thank you. Oldham boys.

0:54:340:54:37

Oldham boys, yeah!

0:54:370:54:39

Come on, let's see. Oh, now, hang on.

0:54:410:54:44

If you're playing netball, you're not allowed to walk with the ball.

0:54:440:54:47

I can't walk?

0:54:470:54:49

When I was a little boy, I did Oliver! in the West End.

0:54:490:54:53

Yeah, I was, erm...Boy 14.

0:54:530:54:55

Boy 14? Did you have any lines?

0:54:550:54:58

No.

0:54:580:54:59

As the Let It Shine auditions reach boiling point,

0:55:020:55:04

now more than ever, the boys battling for the role

0:55:040:55:07

need to show charisma, some je ne sais quoi,

0:55:070:55:10

downright cheeky chappiness.

0:55:100:55:11

When someone comes out and you like them, the audience relax.

0:55:110:55:15

-My name's Connor. I'm from Manchester.

-Hi, Connor.

0:55:150:55:17

CHEERING

0:55:170:55:19

Well, you've already won the audience over.

0:55:190:55:21

You pick up on their energy.

0:55:210:55:23

Makes you smile, makes you feel good.

0:55:230:55:25

I'm loving the look. The cat on the top.

0:55:250:55:27

Yeah. Yeah. I'm not a cat person.

0:55:270:55:30

LAUGHTER

0:55:300:55:31

-What do you do for a living?

-I'm a fitness instructor.

0:55:310:55:35

Running? Yoga?

0:55:350:55:36

-No, not yoga, mate.

-Not yoga?

-No.

0:55:360:55:39

Maybe. Book us in, me and you.

0:55:390:55:41

LAUGHTER

0:55:410:55:44

You know, once people decide that they like you, they're there.

0:55:440:55:47

They're your champion, they're your fans.

0:55:470:55:49

# You're my brown-eyed girl

0:55:490:55:53

# Now, do you remember

0:55:550:55:59

# When we used to sing

0:55:590:56:01

# Sha la la la la la la la la la-la te da? #

0:56:010:56:05

Everyone, now!

0:56:050:56:06

# Sha la la la la la la la la la-la te da

0:56:070:56:13

# Brown-eyed girl. #

0:56:130:56:16

It was so...quirky.

0:56:180:56:20

You're different. You're unexpected.

0:56:200:56:22

I don't know what's going to come next.

0:56:220:56:24

Yes!

0:56:270:56:28

This isn't about a cheeky chappy smile.

0:56:320:56:34

It's what's going on in their brain.

0:56:340:56:36

It's what's happening right in the centre.

0:56:360:56:38

I just graduated at uni, actually. Studying media.

0:56:380:56:40

-So now I'm working as a chef.

-LAUGHTER

0:56:400:56:43

-What do you specialise in?

-In cooking?

0:56:430:56:45

I don't know, I make a really good soup.

0:56:450:56:47

LAUGHTER

0:56:470:56:49

# I have climbed the highest mountains

0:56:490:56:53

# I have run through the fields

0:56:530:56:58

# Only to be with you

0:56:580:57:03

# Only to be with you

0:57:030:57:08

# But I still haven't found

0:57:080:57:12

# What I'm looking for

0:57:120:57:15

# But I still haven't found

0:57:170:57:22

# What I'm looking for. #

0:57:220:57:28

The tone of your voice is really beautiful.

0:57:280:57:31

I think you have a great stage presence.

0:57:310:57:33

Oh...!

0:57:360:57:38

Well, I'm a sucker for likeability.

0:57:400:57:41

-What do you do for a living?

-I'm a tree surgeon.

0:57:410:57:45

I'm just doing it during my gap year before I go to uni.

0:57:450:57:47

All right, so what if you get this job?

0:57:470:57:49

Well, it's going out the window, then, isn't it?

0:57:490:57:51

LAUGHTER

0:57:510:57:53

# Once I ran to you

0:57:530:57:57

# But now I run from you

0:57:570:57:59

# This tainted love you've given

0:57:590:58:02

# I gave you all a boy could give you

0:58:020:58:05

# Take my tears and that's not nearly all

0:58:050:58:09

# Tainted love

0:58:120:58:14

# Tainted love

0:58:150:58:16

# Don't touch me, please

0:58:160:58:19

# I cannot stand the way you tease

0:58:190:58:22

# I'm in love. #

0:58:220:58:24

CHEERING

0:58:240:58:26

The whole personality, the charisma leapt off the stage.

0:58:260:58:29

Here we go!

0:58:290:58:31

Yes!

0:58:320:58:34

Charisma is just an interesting thing.

0:58:370:58:39

Nobody really knows what it is. It's just, if you have it, you have it.

0:58:390:58:43

But you should use it for good and not for evil.

0:58:430:58:45

Right, time to surprise our last secret nominee.

0:58:510:58:54

For this final one, Gary is about to gate-crash graduation day.

0:59:010:59:05

At Kingston University,

0:59:080:59:09

student Anthony Sahota is receiving his degree

0:59:090:59:12

after listening to his mum

0:59:120:59:14

and swapping music for mechanical engineering.

0:59:140:59:17

Before he came to university, he got a chance at a record deal,

0:59:170:59:20

but I wouldn't let him sign it.

0:59:200:59:23

I wanted him to have a degree, something to fall back on.

0:59:230:59:26

CHEERING

0:59:260:59:29

I nominated Anthony because now I think he deserves

0:59:300:59:33

to have that chance.

0:59:330:59:35

# Everybody wants to rule the world... #

0:59:350:59:41

He's got a great look. And he's obviously a smart boy.

0:59:430:59:46

I just hope that that passion he had when he left school,

0:59:460:59:50

he's kept it in the back pocket somewhere

0:59:500:59:53

and he's about to bring it back out again.

0:59:530:59:55

Anthony thinks the university is filming the big day.

0:59:571:00:00

But we know there's someone else about to be caught on camera.

1:00:001:00:03

Hey, everyone.

1:00:101:00:12

-MEL:

-Even Anthony is getting in on this filming malarkey.

1:00:121:00:15

Man, that's sick! Wow!

1:00:151:00:18

-Where's Anthony?

-What?

1:00:201:00:22

No...way!

1:00:221:00:24

-Hi, Anthony.

-Oh, my gosh.

-I'm Gary, nice to meet you.

1:00:251:00:28

Anthony, your gorgeous mum, Caroline,

1:00:281:00:31

has very kindly nominated you

1:00:311:00:33

to come and sing on our Let It Shine stage.

1:00:331:00:35

CHEERING

1:00:351:00:38

I'm speechless. This is just unbelievable. Erm, I...

1:00:481:00:51

I can't fathom...

1:00:511:00:54

I can't put it into words. It's too...

1:00:541:00:56

CHEERING AND LAUGHTER

1:00:591:01:01

Ah...

1:01:011:01:02

Well, let's hope Anthony passes his next examination

1:01:021:01:04

with flying colours.

1:01:041:01:06

# I know I misbehaved

1:01:081:01:11

# You made your mistakes

1:01:111:01:13

# We both still got room left to grow

1:01:131:01:17

# And though love sometimes hurts

1:01:181:01:20

# I still put you first

1:01:201:01:23

# And we'll make this thing work

1:01:231:01:25

# But I think we should take it slow

1:01:251:01:29

# We're just ordinary people

1:01:291:01:32

# We don't know which way to go

1:01:331:01:37

# Cos we're ordinary people

1:01:381:01:42

# Maybe we should take it slow

1:01:431:01:46

# Take it slow. #

1:01:461:01:49

Anthony, everybody.

1:01:501:01:52

APPLAUSE

1:01:521:01:53

The audience didn't go crazy and that's because

1:01:531:01:56

you need to just work a little bit more on your performance,

1:01:561:01:58

the selling of the song.

1:01:581:01:59

Oh...

1:02:011:02:02

Yes!

1:02:021:02:03

16!

1:02:071:02:08

-I really thought that it was beautiful.

-You look great, as well.

1:02:111:02:14

You looked the part.

1:02:141:02:16

Go and see great performers.

1:02:161:02:18

You can learn from them. Who do you love?

1:02:181:02:21

I really, really like the Backstreet Boys as, like, a band themselves.

1:02:211:02:24

I think vocally they're one of the strongest bands around.

1:02:241:02:27

Hang on, hang on, hang on.

1:02:271:02:29

No, Gary, no... No, no, Gary.

1:02:291:02:32

-I love you.

-Ladies and gentlemen, it's Anthony!

1:02:321:02:34

-He's got a long way to go, that boy.

-Yeah, and a smart boy.

1:02:391:02:42

He'll be the wise one of the band.

1:02:421:02:44

-Martin, who was the worrier in Spandau?

-The worrier?

1:02:441:02:48

-Because I was the worrier in our band.

-We took it in turns.

1:02:481:02:52

Especially in the days of the second album.

1:02:521:02:55

-We never knew if it was going to work or not.

-Yeah.

1:02:551:02:58

And we all worried about that.

1:02:581:03:00

As the audition finishing line approaches,

1:03:021:03:05

there are some final boyband cliches

1:03:051:03:07

that I think are worthy of a little further interrogation.

1:03:071:03:10

I have been trying all morning to do my signature boyband

1:03:101:03:14

getting off a stool manoeuvre.

1:03:141:03:16

Would you...? Could you show us?

1:03:161:03:19

Hang on a second, though. The real boyband never sat on stools.

1:03:191:03:24

CHEERING

1:03:241:03:26

Yes, Gary. They know. They know it's true. They know.

1:03:261:03:30

-Was that Westlife?

-That was Westlife.

1:03:301:03:32

It was Westlife, Gary, I'm sorry.

1:03:321:03:33

What does he know?

1:03:351:03:36

I've got my boyband checklist at the ready.

1:03:361:03:38

How about one last dose of Essex charm?

1:03:381:03:41

All right, Dannii? How you doing, girl, all right?

1:03:411:03:43

Yeah, you're looking very lovely.

1:03:431:03:45

# Oooh, I want to get it on

1:03:451:03:49

# Oooh

1:03:491:03:51

# Oooh hooo-hooo... #

1:03:521:03:54

Oh...!

1:03:561:03:57

OK, so Liam didn't win them over. What else have you got?

1:03:581:04:01

How about an Irishman? We know a thing or two about boybands.

1:04:011:04:05

Actually, the second and third best boybands in the world

1:04:051:04:08

-are from Ireland.

-I have to live up to something now.

1:04:081:04:11

# And you can tell everybody

1:04:121:04:15

# This is your song

1:04:151:04:19

# It may be quite simple, but

1:04:191:04:23

# Now that it's done

1:04:231:04:25

# I hope you don't mind I hope you don't mind

1:04:261:04:30

# That I put down in words

1:04:301:04:34

# How wonderful life is

1:04:351:04:40

# Now you're in the world. #

1:04:401:04:43

Oh!

1:04:471:04:48

Ronan, eat your heart out.

1:04:501:04:53

Now, every boyband member needs to know their way around a ballad.

1:04:531:04:56

Yep, and check out the judges doing that weird head nodding thing.

1:04:561:05:00

# Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

1:05:001:05:04

# It's not warm when she's away

1:05:051:05:11

# Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

1:05:121:05:15

# And she's always gone too long

1:05:151:05:18

# Any time she goes away

1:05:181:05:23

# I wonder this time where she's gone. #

1:05:251:05:30

So Yazdan's through.

1:05:351:05:37

Now, surely, in boyband world we are legally required

1:05:371:05:40

-to have somebody wearing white.

-Oh, absolutely.

1:05:401:05:43

I'm from Brighton. I'm a gas engineer.

1:05:431:05:46

I've done some shows back in Brighton.

1:05:461:05:47

I've done some shows in my home town in Brighton.

1:05:471:05:50

-You're not from Brighton, are you, by any chance?

-Yeah.

1:05:501:05:53

# That's life

1:05:531:05:56

# That's what all the people say

1:05:561:06:00

# You're riding high in April

1:06:001:06:03

# Shot down in May... #

1:06:031:06:06

AUDIENCE GROANS

1:06:081:06:11

OK, style alert.

1:06:111:06:13

Here comes a backwards baseball cap

1:06:131:06:15

from a man old enough to know better.

1:06:151:06:17

-I'm 37.

-What?!

1:06:171:06:18

LAUGHTER

1:06:181:06:20

37? What moisturiser do you use?

1:06:201:06:22

LAUGHTER

1:06:221:06:24

# Take me to church

1:06:241:06:29

# I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife

1:06:291:06:33

# Offer me that deathless death

1:06:331:06:35

# Oh, good God Let me give you my life

1:06:351:06:38

# Take me to church... #

1:06:381:06:40

Oh! CHEERING

1:06:431:06:44

Wow! Oh!

1:06:441:06:47

Time for a final one?

1:06:471:06:49

Next, how about a girl band classic to even things out a little?

1:06:491:06:53

# Viva forever

1:06:531:06:56

# I'll be waiting

1:06:561:06:59

# Everlasting

1:06:591:07:02

# Like the sun... #

1:07:021:07:04

Beautiful voice, very theatrical.

1:07:041:07:07

No?!

1:07:071:07:08

Yes! CHEERING

1:07:081:07:10

-Right, happy now, Mel?

-Yes. Finally satiated. All good, thanks, Graham.

1:07:101:07:15

-Oh.

-What is it, Graham?

-Well, I've got one more auditionee.

1:07:151:07:18

He's been sat on that blue box backstage for nine hours.

1:07:181:07:21

Shall I just send him home?

1:07:211:07:22

Definitely not.

1:07:221:07:24

As a child, he was in a film with Colin Firth,

1:07:251:07:27

but can teenager Bradley Johnson prove he's got what it takes

1:07:271:07:30

to keep a live theatre audience on the edge of their seats?

1:07:301:07:33

-How are you doing?

-Yeah, all right.

1:07:391:07:41

-What's your name?

-My name's Bradley Johnson, I'm 19, from Bradford.

1:07:411:07:44

-Yeah?

-WHOOPING

1:07:441:07:45

-Do you love singing?

-Yeah, I've been singing since I was five.

1:07:481:07:51

Singing is my passion and it's something that I'd love to do.

1:07:511:07:53

And have you performed on stages?

1:07:531:07:55

Yeah, I've done musicals and things in the past.

1:07:551:07:58

Hang on, Bradley.

1:07:581:07:59

-Did you say Bradford?

-Bradford, yeah!

1:07:591:08:01

Good curries there.

1:08:011:08:03

Indeed, indeed!

1:08:031:08:04

I always remember it on tour, we'd always say,

1:08:041:08:06

"We're playing Leeds now?

1:08:061:08:07

-"Let's stop in Bradford for a curry."

-Yeah!

1:08:071:08:10

-Exactly.

-Definitely.

1:08:101:08:13

How do you think you'd cope with life on the road,

1:08:131:08:15

being away from the good curry?

1:08:151:08:16

I would love it, and I think it's better for my mum, actually,

1:08:161:08:19

-cos I think she's sick of me being at home all the time!

-Is she?!

1:08:191:08:22

-This is your moment, Bradley.

-Thank you very much.

1:08:221:08:24

-Whenever you're ready.

-Thank you.

Thank you. Whoa!

1:10:341:10:37

Well done. Judges, could you enter your scores, please?

1:10:371:10:42

-What a lovely moment, Bradley.

-Aww, thank you so much.

1:10:421:10:46

Wow, I don't even know what to say.

1:10:461:10:48

-It was terrific. Terrific.

-Oh, thank you so much.

1:10:481:10:50

Have you been in musicals?

1:10:501:10:52

I know you've done the acting - have you been in actual stage musicals?

1:10:521:10:54

Only amateur stuff, local stage schools and stuff.

1:10:541:10:57

-Wow. Well, that voice...

-Thank you.

-Uh, let's go... Yes.

1:10:571:11:00

CHEERING

1:11:001:11:02

-Gary.

-Well, that song in particular,

1:11:071:11:10

it's very easy to overdramatise that song,

1:11:101:11:13

-to start grabbing the air and spitting at everybody.

-Yeah.

1:11:131:11:18

And you did it beautifully,

1:11:181:11:20

you hit every single note with absolute perfection.

1:11:201:11:24

-Thank you.

-The control you have is fantastic.

1:11:241:11:27

It's a pleasure, actually,

1:11:271:11:28

to see someone and hear someone with an amazing instrument like that

1:11:281:11:33

and make everybody in the room's hair stand on end.

1:11:331:11:36

-It was absolutely gorgeous, well done.

-Thank you so much.

1:11:361:11:39

I'm guessing people just have lovely things to say.

1:11:421:11:45

Martin Kemp, what have you got to say?

1:11:451:11:46

-What you have is a complete gift.

-Thank you so much.

1:11:461:11:50

That is just amazing.

1:11:501:11:51

You knew what every word meant in that song

1:11:511:11:54

and everybody in here enjoyed it just as much as I did.

1:11:541:11:58

It was an amazing performance

1:11:581:12:00

and a pleasure to be in the same room as you while you were doing it.

1:13:141:13:16

He did good, he did good.

1:13:161:13:18

Dannii, is there any notes you can give him,

1:13:181:13:20

anything you can tell him that he should work on?

1:13:201:13:23

Mum, you're going to have to teach him how to do his own washing.

1:13:231:13:25

LAUGHTER

1:13:251:13:26

Yeah, that was unbelievable.

1:13:281:13:31

"I'm so happy for you." I'm happy for us that you came here.

1:13:321:13:36

-Oh, thank you.

-I really am.

1:13:361:13:37

I can't stop smiling.

1:13:391:13:42

Amber, you know what it's like to take a big song from a musical

1:13:421:13:44

and sing it in isolation like that.

1:13:441:13:46

-How impressed were you?

-I mean...

1:13:461:13:48

you took me to heaven with that song, seriously.

1:13:481:13:52

Your natural vibrato made my heart literally flutter.

1:13:521:13:56

It's just...

1:13:561:13:58

You're magnificent.

1:13:581:13:59

-Thank you.

-Wow. I'm sure you're over the moon.

1:13:591:14:01

-We will see you again.

-Thanks again.

1:14:011:14:02

-Thank you very much.

-Huge congratulations to Bradley!

1:14:021:14:05

CHEERING

1:14:051:14:06

There he goes.

1:14:061:14:07

-Oh, man.

-Wow, those notes.

1:14:091:14:12

-So deserved.

-It's like...

-You know when it's the 20s.

1:14:121:14:16

He's so seasoned...to be that young.

1:14:161:14:18

When he says he hasn't done professional work, I'm like,

1:14:181:14:22

"What?!" Amateur stuff?

1:14:221:14:25

When he hit those notes, it was spot-on,

1:14:251:14:27

then it was the point where he started the vibrato...

1:14:271:14:29

-Yeah, his vibrato was like that natural.

-The timing of it.

1:14:291:14:34

-The timing, yeah.

-His mum's going to miss him.

1:14:341:14:36

I've got a feeling I'm going to be having

1:14:361:14:38

a chicken tikka masala with him any time soon.

1:14:381:14:40

-Bring it on.

-Bradford, here we come.

1:14:421:14:45

I don't know what to say.

1:14:451:14:46

I'm never speechless. That was absolutely amazing.

1:14:461:14:49

-Made for the stage.

-I'd do that again.

-Incredible.

1:14:491:14:51

That was absolutely incredible.

1:14:511:14:52

We were just saying you missed out on a few backflips, though.

1:14:521:14:55

-We're going to have to teach you backflips.

-I'm saving it all!

1:14:551:14:58

We'll teach you them for the next one.

1:14:581:15:00

Funny you should say that, guys,

1:15:001:15:02

because Bradley and all of our successful auditionees

1:15:021:15:05

about to be tested on whether they have the moves to play

1:15:051:15:08

a boyband in a musical.

1:15:081:15:10

First, let's say ta-ra to our guest judge.

1:15:111:15:14

Amber Riley, everybody! CHEERING

1:15:141:15:16

There you go.

1:15:161:15:17

-Thank you.

-Enjoy that.

1:15:171:15:19

Right, as we hinted at earlier in the show,

1:15:201:15:23

we've bussed down the boys to see if they've got rhythm in their bones.

1:15:231:15:28

At the end of today, four of our bunch will find themselves

1:15:281:15:30

on the reserves bench with no guarantee of returning.

1:15:301:15:34

That's because we have more boys who scored 15 stars or more

1:15:341:15:37

than we have places in the next round.

1:15:371:15:40

So the boys must now face a dance challenge

1:15:421:15:44

to decide who goes through and which four boys will become reserves.

1:15:441:15:48

Taking into account both their audition performance

1:15:511:15:54

and their boogying,

1:15:541:15:55

the judges have agreed on eight boys they want to discuss further.

1:15:551:15:59

-GARY:

-OK, well, we've got it down to these few.

1:15:591:16:02

What next?

1:16:021:16:03

# And anywhere I would have followed you... #

1:16:031:16:08

Nicky received 20 stars for his audition.

1:16:081:16:10

But how's his footwork?

1:16:131:16:15

-DANCE MUSIC PLAYS

-Oh.

-Oh, Nicky.

1:16:151:16:18

What a shame.

1:16:201:16:22

Vocals are amazing, though.

1:16:221:16:24

# Cos I don't think... #

1:16:241:16:26

Hercules blew the judges away.

1:16:261:16:29

HE HOLDS EXTENDED NOTE

1:16:291:16:36

Are they convinced he's worth seeing again?

1:16:361:16:39

Do you know something? When I walked away from the audition that night,

1:16:431:16:45

he was the one I remembered.

1:16:451:16:47

# Yeah, you, you, you, you... #

1:16:471:16:49

Keith scraped through with 15 stars.

1:16:491:16:51

# That is what you are... #

1:16:511:16:53

# Is all to me... #

1:16:531:16:56

As did Underground technician Luke.

1:16:561:16:58

But will they scrape through today?

1:17:001:17:02

-GARY:

-He was great vocally when we saw him.

1:17:021:17:04

His dancing doesn't do it for me.

1:17:081:17:09

He's got to work on his skill set.

1:17:111:17:12

He's got to have the confidence so that we don't feel nervous

1:17:121:17:16

-sitting in that theatre seat.

-Yep.

1:17:161:17:18

# Live forever... #

1:17:181:17:20

The judges weren't sure about Jack's vocal audition.

1:17:201:17:23

It just reminds me of old-fashioned theatre.

1:17:231:17:27

It's the one thing, I close my eyes,

1:17:271:17:29

I don't want to hear that in this show.

1:17:291:17:31

But he has something that I would love to give him another chance.

1:17:311:17:35

But could his dancing keep him in the contest?

1:17:351:17:37

# King of the hill... #

1:17:421:17:43

Deaglan's performance wowed.

1:17:431:17:45

HE HOLDS EXTENDED NOTE

1:17:451:17:51

But does his dancing?

1:17:511:17:52

There's no-one that makes me smile more than Deaglan.

1:17:561:17:58

He has to go through to the next round, right?

1:17:581:18:00

If I was to close my eyes, I can't see him in this group.

1:18:001:18:03

# But if you close your eyes... #

1:18:031:18:06

And finally, have Jordan and Ciaran's combo

1:18:061:18:08

of singing and dancing skills earned them a place

1:18:081:18:11

in next week's collaborations extravaganza?

1:18:111:18:14

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

1:18:141:18:18

DANCE MUSIC PLAYS

1:18:181:18:20

Everything's right, but there's a big piece missing

1:18:261:18:29

-that doesn't make me excited.

-Yeah.

1:18:291:18:32

This is going to be tough.

1:18:321:18:33

-You're making a big decision for the rest of their lives.

-Yeah.

1:18:331:18:37

So those are the boys at risk of being relegated to reserves,

1:18:371:18:40

but which four will it be?

1:18:401:18:42

We've got our four that I don't think it was their moment,

1:18:431:18:46

cos either the dancing or the singing wasn't up there

1:18:461:18:49

and we need both.

1:18:491:18:50

So we're all agreed, the four reserves?

1:18:501:18:53

Jack, Jordan,

1:18:551:18:57

Keith and Ciaran.

1:18:571:19:00

-Yep.

-OK.

-All right.

1:19:001:19:02

I think we've got it right.

1:19:021:19:04

Next week, everything changes.

1:19:041:19:07

Our remaining 40 are going to perform in groups

1:19:071:19:09

as they collaborate with some singing superstars -

1:19:091:19:12

Melanie C...

1:19:121:19:14

# Baby, when you're gone

1:19:141:19:16

# I realise I'm in love

1:19:181:19:21

# Days go on and on... #

1:19:221:19:24

..Kaiser Chiefs...

1:19:241:19:26

# Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby

1:19:261:19:28

# Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

1:19:281:19:31

# Do you, do you, do you, do you

1:19:311:19:33

# Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah... #

1:19:331:19:35

..Busted...

1:19:351:19:36

# I've been to the year 3000

1:19:361:19:40

# Not much has changed But they live under water... #

1:19:401:19:45

..Beverley Knight...

1:19:451:19:46

# Oh, I wanna dance with somebody

1:19:461:19:49

# I wanna feel the heat with somebody... #

1:19:501:19:54

..and Olly Murs.

1:19:541:19:56

# ..Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad?

1:19:561:19:59

# Whoa

1:19:591:20:01

# My mind keeps saying, "Run as fast as you can"

1:20:011:20:04

# Troublemaker... #

1:20:041:20:06

With our new guest judge Lulu on hand

1:20:061:20:08

to relight our competition...

1:20:081:20:10

# We-e-e-e-e-e-ell... #

1:20:101:20:13

..who will seize their chance to illuminate our stage

1:20:131:20:16

and take one step closer to that role in a brand-new musical?

1:20:161:20:20

This is the last chance for the hopefuls to audition solo in front of both the Manchester studio audience and the judging panel they need to impress: Gary Barlow, Dannii Minogue, Martin Kemp and Amber Riley.

Presenters Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc bring all the action, fun and gossip from the studio and backstage.
