Tuesday Dawn Expelled
AIRED:
Tuesday 8th March 8.00pm – BBC One Tonight six will become five. Good evening to the Judges, Mr & Mrs Grant and Kevin and Jeremy. First up its Edith, who is very tired with the "boot camp" life in the Academy, she was also quite moody in Kevin's dance class earlier – Sweet Dreams – Richard "Annie Lennox used to have great fun with that song" "you brought a massive amount of joy to that song and it swept around the whole Academy" "your finest to date" "well done brilliant" Lesley "I was so excited to hear you were going to hear this song, I was at the Royal Academy with her" "You have given us four decades of music" "your best moment" Paddy then comments on Lesley's revealing cleavage from her dress tonight. Craig "Last night I never got to comment on you, which was your worst performance" "tonight you came back up to your rock chick Edith, excellent" Up in the audience Cat is joined by Edith's mom who is so proud of her girl and will be supporting her to the very end with her "open ended ticket". On to Reggie – This old heart of mine – Craig "Reggie that was a very confident performance, but was by no way good enough to go through" Reggie hits back "Your almost pantomime" "give me something constructive" Craig "the other guys are way more talented" David "let me tell you something Craig, Reggie came in here, he isn't a singer but for Reggie that's the best performance he's done" "Everyone comes in at a different level" "the public are clearly hearing something else" Richard "The performance you put in was excellent" "your not hitting every note" "that was much better, somewhere in the middle of your previous efforts so if you fancy Reggie pick up the phone and vote for Reggie" Paddy than comments on "Richard fancying Reggie!" Dawn – What I am – Lesley "really interesting choice of song" "of all the contestants you seem the most mysterious, the most enigmatic which is a lovely quality to have cause you draw people to you" "on a technical level it covered the area's of your voice that you need to work on" Richard "it was patchy" "I don't think that song suited you" "It went over my head" "it was solid but not spectacular and you might be in the bottom three" Craig "I'm in Richards camp, it was nice to see you move" "it was great" Adrian was up next but with his voice going he had to go for a more spectacular performance to cover the lack of vocals. For this he was strapped into a pair of ski's that were weighed down so he could move forward and backward in various strange angles while singing It must be love – when Paddy joined him on stage at the end of the song for the judges critique Ade fell on to his side so Paddy layed down beside him for the comments – Richard "the voice is absolutely shot" "lay off the booze if you wanna makes the final" Craig "I would pay to see that performance again" Lesley "you are amazing I never thought you could make another sound" "if you eat another curry before bedtime I will personally smack your bottom" Up on the balcony Cat was joined by comic Harry Enfield and scene stealing son Archie. Harry said "that was his best performance" "he's the prettiest contestant" When Cat asks why the viewers at home should vote for Ade he replies should "he's the greatest really, and he's like the father and he's like that at home" "and lovely wife who is very often to faithful to" "he's a gorgeous chap all around and everybody's favorite childish drunkard" "he's gonna win" Cat thanks Harry and Archie and as she is introducing the clip for Kim's day in the Academy, young Archie starts to clap uncontrollably, then licks his palms and sticks his tongue out to laughter from the audience and Cat alike. On to Albert Squares Kim Medcalf – Perfect – When Paddy joins her, he asks for Richards comments and then his handheld microphone flies from his hand right across the stage – Richard "Tonight you look radiant, your confidence is at the highest its ever been" "if you continue to perform like this on Friday night down at Comic Relief you will have a very happy night indeed" Craig "I agree with Richard, vocally it was perfect, I just wish you hadn't generalized the lyric" David "What Craig is saying is that he would have preferred to have heard the song sung to a specific person" Lesley "To survive this experience you have to develop stamina, some of the other students are showing cracks while you seem to be going from strength to strength" "you have continued growing" "to hit those high notes at this stage in the competition, it's phenomenal" Debra – Anyone who had a heart – Lesley "that was just the kind of risk I have been longing for you to take and you did it really well" "I think at this stage of the competition the competitors are all singing songs they never expected they'd have to sing so your on your second choices" "it was really good" Richard "there was the odd consonant slip up, you came out here you stormed it, very very good" up on the balcony Cat is joined by Coronation Street stars Nikki Sanderson and Danny Young who think she did fantastic, she's always singing in their greenroom, they agree half and half with the criticism from the judges. Now on to the group performances first up Reggie, Adrian, Dawn and Edith with It Ain't what you do – Richard "In that quartet Edith carried it off, I enjoyed that" Craig "Edith held it together" Lesley "It epitomized what this show is all about" Now on to the duet of Coronation Street vs. EastEnder's, Kim and Debra – I only want to be with you – Craig "I guess you guys had just 6 minutes to learn it, I liked the sixty's moves, sugar, sweet I liked it" Lesley "Oh it was great, I just loved it" "your voices blend so well" Richard "that song is 42 years old, that was superb" That was it for now The results will follow in 90 minutes time. The Results 10.35pm – BBC One Welcome back to the Academy, tonight they had more votes than any other night in this series. So far £650,000 has been raised topping the total raised in the 2003 series. Miss Claudia was now upstairs in the students living room, the highlights of the last day are shown including Adrian trying to return expelled student Nicks guitar and the toast to Nicholas Othello Augustus Knowles. They all watched back their performances with David and Carrie and also saw the legend that is Barbara Windsor crying when she was talking to Cat. That morning ballerina Darcey Bussel came to the academy to give a pilates class. All the students and Kevin Adams showed off his ballet skills. The lines were then closed. Paddy asks Reggie how things are without Nick, while Cat asks Debra about singing with Kim earlier. Adrian is asked by paddy about what tricks are left with his voice now gone. Cat asks Kim about how hard the student vote is getting. Finally Paddy asks Reggie about his chances of getting through tonight. A Comic Relief film based on projects in the UK and fronted by Martin Clunes was then broadcast. The results of the votes are now in. The three saved by the public are: Kim, Adrian and Debra. Edith, Reggie and Dawn faced the judges. Craig – "I would like to save Edith tonight because she's fantastic" Lesley – "everytime she sings I think I'm listening to the original artist – Edith" Richard "I think it's a travesty that she was in the bottom three at all so unquestionably Miss Bowman your're through" Cat then asks Reggie if there was anything he wanted to say to the voting students "I've already been here before, man If I go out I'll be pleased" and Dawn "I've had a brilliant time, so whatever it's fine" The student vote: Kim – Dawn, Adrian – Reggie, Debra – Dawn & Edith – Reggie. So it went back to the public vote. The student with the most votes from the public was; Reggie. So Dawn was going home. Speaking to Cat, Dawn said "All the amazing people she has met" will be her main memory. So only five remained at the Academy.moreless
