AIRED:
Friday 4th March – 9.00pm BBC One The forth live show from the Fame Academy saw all ten celebrity students singing for survival. Once the introductions of the judges and Mr and Mrs Grant were out of the way it was down to business with the first student to take to the stage being Debra – Get here – Craig "the best you've sung" "completely connected 100%" Lesley "you sing beautifully" "lyrical, sweet" "you should try to challenge yourself vocally more and get out of your safety zone" Richard "good solid start to this evenings show" "better than you've done" "you are in with a chance" Reggie – Can't touch this – Craig "Absolutely fantastic" "at your best when your not singing" Lesley "It's what your best at but don't give up on your lyrical singing" Richard "I'm impressed" "You've turned it around" It suits you" Kim – Don't speak – Richard "I was hoping for a good performance" "you didn't bring off the rock chick vibe" Lesley "I was thinking about you in bed last night, after last night you remind me of Olivia Newton John as Sandy in Grease the way she changes through the movie" Craig "I don't agree, you were trying too hard" "wasn't honest performance" David "to the guys on the end (Craig and Richard) you are conmen, every night you tell them to try something new and every time they do you both slap them down" Nick vents his thoughts on the judging panel while speaking to Cat before his performance, to Richard he says "I think your tone deaf and need to review your own performance" "I think Craig Tango Foxtrot is on the wrong show and he should go back to where he came from" "I only want to hear what Lesley, Carrie and David have to say as they are singers" "I won't be put off by a couple of pantomime dames" Then it was time for him to sing for them. Nick – Kiss – Craig "Everything you've done up to date has been the same, you have not grown one moment" "you have gotten over your nerves but that's all" "top register was out of tune" Lesley "I can't say you haven't improved, your so much better than last Saturday" "Your voice worried me as it was the most damaged voice coming in" Carrie "lots of cigarettes" "It's improved massively and I'm sorry you guys can't hear that" Richard "He speak sings" "This critique is all for Comic Relief" Then Nick says that he understands but he dislikes the "cheap shots you take at the girls" Richard "no cheap shots" "honest, fair critique given" "we will discuss this afterwards" "A cheap shot would be for example me saying if you were chocolate you'd eat yourself" After all that it was on to Dawn – I don't want to talk about it" – Richard "I find myself in a slightly difficult place, Nick has described me as some kind of misogynist" "I think tonight she sung the best ballad" "contained" "inside yourself" "lovely person" Lesley "absorbed the song" "controlled way" "strange choice" "beautiful" Chris – This Love – Craig "more comfortable moving about" "voice improves with movement" Lesley "So much better than last two performances, this went back to Hey ya" Richard "marionette – ish" "singing didn't rise to the occasion" "pub singer" Chris then hits back at Richards comments "I'm not listening to a man who has to go home and watch it on telly and come back with different views" Richard answers "I'm not quite sure what you mean but if viewers disagree calls cost 25p so why doesn't everyone who disagrees with me vote in" Jon – God put a smile on your face – Lesley "growing in confidence" "such a joy" "a way to go, pronunciation needs work" Craig "didn't do you any favors" "you did look far more confident in the space" Jon retorts in a Dale Winton vocal impression "Well bless your heart you little Dale Winton of the dark side" Richard "I know realize you sing the same style all the time" "There was something in that I did find endearing" Gina – Celebration – Craig "you give me enormous amounts of pleasure" "the singing has improved slightly" "I love watching you" Lesley "I think all the shouting was damaging your voice" "this was much better" Adrian – Born to be wild – "didn't enjoy last night but that was damn good" Lesley "that was amazing" "I love your performance" Craig "Your performances belong in an asylum, I love them" Edith – Sing it back – Richard "voice croaked but that did not diminish the most accomplished performance of the ladies tonight" Lesley "I would urge you all to not part tonight, look after your voices" The seven with the most votes will be saved by the public so your urged to pick up the phone and keep texting to save your favorite and raise money for Comic Relief. The Results 10.35pm – BBC One Cat and Pat greet viewers "Tonight these ten celebrities sung for your vote. It's Friday night, the weekend starts right here. The main reason why we get the students down here is so Claudia Winkleman can route around in their smalls" The past twenty four hours are then recapped including Gina Yashere demand for her ice cream, Friday morning they woke to a snowy day and a grueling workout with Kevin who taught them the routine he made for the Spice girls. Back in the live studio the results are nearly in. Before they are revealed Paddy asks Debra what she feels about challenging herself more. She says she is open to try but wouldn't want to go too far out of her comfort zone for fear of failure. A reminder of why they are all giving their time is shown via a clip of Robbie Williams from a trip he made for Comic Relief in 2001. The results of the public vote: Chris, Kim, Nick, Dawn, Adrian, Debra and Edith are all through. But it's not over yet for Jon, Gina & Reggie. Now it was up to the judges: Craig – Gina "because she's the best performer", Lesley – Jon "for vocal improvement" Richard – Gina. With two votes Gina joined to others to decide Reggie and Jon's fates. Before the vote Cat asked if Reggie had anything he wanted to say to the voting students. He replied "We've both been here before, its about raising money" Jon answered the same question with "We've had a great run, do whatever you have to do" The student vote went as follows: Chris – Reggie, Kim – Reggie, Nick – Reggie, Dawn – Reggie, Adrian – Reggie, Debra – Jon, Edith – Reggie and Gina – Jon. With six votes to two, keeping his place in the academy was Top of the Pops co host Reggie Yates. Deadringer's impressionist Jon Culshaw was going home. Speaking to Cat before leaving the stage he said "It's been a fantastic run". When asked by Cat who he thought was gonna win he said "Edith's a bit of a rock star" With only a week to Red Nose Day there is still plenty of entertainment to come.moreless
