EDIT
Sunday Gina Expelled
AIRED:
Sunday 6th March 6.35pm – BBC One With all the celebrities dressed up in suits and cocktail dresses for Swing night and Paddy wearing a tie for the first time in Fame Academy history we were sure in for some treats. So far two million votes have been cast with £350,000 being raised for Comic Relief. Cat introduced the swinging trio who were going to be shooting from the hip, their very own "rat pack" the judges. So straight ahead to the performances and first up Edith – Come fly with me – Lesley "first of all I want to say how impressed I've been with the way you dealt with your sore throat" "that was wonderful" "you so understand the style" Craig "much better than last night" So not boring then? Edith asked. Craig "I wasn't bored for one moment" "effortless" Richard "for the best bits I was transported to a New York supper club in the 1920s" "Edith can do better" Carrie "she swang tonight Richard, you're bang out of order" Nick – The lady is a tramp – Lesley "well don't you scrub up well" "We've come a long way from the skirt and no knickers" "this is your music, that was fantastic, the best you've sung" Craig "I really enjoyed that and you sung in tune" Richard "Here's the serious critique, you've said you haven't sung well on the other nights and tonight is no exception" "the moving not great, the singing not great" Nick then responds "I was afraid that I was going to get a good review but after that I'm sure I'm in" David "Lesley you're a singer, Craig you're a mover, Richard your wrong" Debra – Cry me a river – Richard "Did you say that was beautiful Patrick?" He replies "I thought so" Richard "for once I agree with you" "That was quite beautifully sung, there's a shiver going down my spine" "spotless" "blemish less" "on mothers day for your little ones, I guess they'll be pretty proud" Lesley "that's exactly what I meant the other day when I said you needed to challenge yourself emotionally" "fabulous" Craig "the simplicity was what made that work for you" "I was hooked, line and sinker" Adrian – Your just too good to be true – Lesley "That's last time I asked you to sing Mozart" "your diction was good, I'm speechless" Craig "The beginning of the song was out of tune, I didn't know where you were going to go with it, what saved it was that middle section" "you moved brilliantly" Richard "that was great, brilliant, marvelous, superb" Dawn – Close to you – Lesley "You do have a beautiful voice and tone but that song didn't suit you" "you pulled away from the top notes a little bit" Carrie "actually Lesley is right" Craig "absolutely nothing worked in that for me tonight" "It sounded like you couldn't sing and you can sing that's the strange thing" Richard "I'm sort of baffled, I think she came on and struck the notes and carried it off all the way through" Kim – Fever – Craig "You so did that in your own way, I'm so pleased you pulled back on the whole thing because you drew us completely in, I was imagining you writhing around on satin sheets, it was fantastic, really great, Sexy" Lesley "so contained, how far you've come since the supremes a week ago" Richard "That was top class, very good indeed" "your acting experience came over, that was terrific" Then it was up to the balcony where Cat was joined by EaseEnder's stars Lacey Turner, Steve McFadden, Cliff Parisi and Jill Halfpenny. Cat asks Lacey what she thought of the Kim's performance and if she felt she had smouldered, Lacey relies "yeah she was brilliant" Cat asks Steve if he agrees with the judges this evening, to which he replied "pretty much, but Kim just sounds great, looks great and she is great" Cat asks if he would ever do something like that, he replies no. Finally she asks Jill who she thinks might win to which she replies "obviously I want Kim to win" asked if she liked anyone else, she says "I thought Debra was also very good but we're here for Kim" Cat then turn's to Jill and mentions her being on the receiving end of Craig before which is met by lots of laughter throughout the audience. Jill says "I've completely agreed with him about Kim. She was fantastic" Back to the stage and Reggie – Just the way you are – Richard "Pancake day that was as flat as a pancake" "I've really enjoyed the rap and reggae but for a ballad it didn't work for you" Lesley takes over "were you born that negative or have you had to work at it" "it takes year and years to train a voice" "they are improving ever single day" tells Richard to "Sod Off" David "he did really well, there are over 120 notes in that song and I counted about 20" "over 90% of the song in tune" "Lesley is right" Richard "120 notes, if pound notes were notes, I'm afraid Reggie you wouldn't have a fiver" Then Lesley puts her fluffy shoulder wrap over Richards head. Craig "I think you approached the song in the beginning in the wrong way" "your brave for attempting" Gina – My baby just cares for me – Craig "I don't think any amount work was gonna save that" "the voice is just too small" Gina suggests she should have sung in a Nigerian accent. Lesley "That was my favorite vocal performance form you" "it's a shame your loosing your voice" "I loved the rap last night" Carrie "This is an Academy, she is progressing, Lesley is right" "it's a shame that Craig is so negative" Craig replies "I'm only being honest, your biased because you teach her" Richard "I thought good, the first sixty seconds were very good" That was it and an unexpected twist was in store during the student vote in the result show. The Results 9.00pm – BBC One In the first and only hour long result show of the series an unexpected twist awaited the three students with the least votes. Welcome back to Swing night at the Academy. Thirteen started the series and tonight just seven will remain. £1.50 which is ten calls can immunize a child for the five killer diseases. It was now time for the group performances boys vs. girls. First up were the girls singing "Every time we say Goodbye" The judges then gave comments. Lesley "It's a wonderful idea this singing together and it really helps your singing voices" Craig "It must be really difficult having to learn staging and you pulled it off" Richard "Edith Bowman stood out, she lifted the song from the beginning, the ladies have done great". Reggie's mom had a quick on screen word with Cat and then it was time for the gents with "Beyond the sea" Craig "I loved it, true spirit of swing, great harmonies" Lesley "true spirit of swing and true spirit of Comic Relief" "wonderful" Carrie "this started at ten past eight this morning and for these guys to manage this in just half an hour is amazing" David "The girls just had half an hour too and have done brilliantly. Also Kevin contributed massively to them both" Richard "Well to sum it up everyone here and at home enjoyed it" "on balance the boys were better" Lesley "I think because they attempted a different harmony, the boys" Craig "the boys defiantly" Then Cat handed the show over to Claudia who was on expelled student Chris' bed smelling his pillow. A half term report was then shown recapping Academy life from Wednesday night to Saturday night. Just before the result a few question to the students followed by a short film of ex Fame Academy student Fearne Cotton's Comic Relief trip to Kenya earlier this year. Then the moment of truth had arrived. The five students saved by the public were: Adrian, Nick, Kim, Edith and Dawn. Then the surprise was sprung, the bottom three Debra, Reggie and Gina were going to have to sing live again for the judges to decide who they would choose to save. Debra sang even better than earlier, Reggie was pretty much the same while Gina put in a charming effort. So on to the judge's vote: Craig "This is by no way personal, Debra" Lesley "She has a fantastic voice - Debra" Richard "My vote goes to the singer not the joker or the presenter – Debra". Debra then joined the others for the student vote to decide between Reggie and Gina. Before the vote Cat asked Reggie if there was anything he wanted to say to the voting students, he said "This isn't a tough choice, we're here to raise money, were just vessels if I go I go, if I stay I stay, Its fine" Gina said "we've came here we've raised a lot of money, made some mates and I'm just honoured to be here" The student vote went as follows: Adrian – Gina, Nick – Reggie, Kim – Reggie, Edith – Reggie, Debra – Reggie & finally Dawn – Reggie. With four votes to two remaining in the Academy was Reggie Yates. Time was running out so there wasn't time for Cat to chat to Gina. Lemar will be on tomorrow nights show.moreless
