Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 10
AIRED:
It's Tuesday morning - and Malachi & Ainslie begin to regret their partying antics of the previous night, as they suffer from hangovers. There's also the realisation that they'll soon be in one of Kevin's dance classes. Carrie announces in her class that a special celebrity guest will be visiting the next day - Shania Twain. She'll be hosting her own masterclass, with four of the Academy's students - Lemar, Pippa, Nigel and Sinead. They have to practise Shania's song - "You're Still the One", but in their own personal style. Carrie makes it clear that they don't want any carbon copies of Shania's song - and they should all be different. The three students on probation have their vocal lessons with Carrie. She praises all of the students - saying that she'll be pleased if David gives her what she's just seen on Friday, and tries to reassure a nervous Katie. Carrie quizzes Camilla on how she feels about being on probation. Camilla reveals that she expected it, although she doesn't want to leave. Malachi and Ainslie have a quiet moment together - in which Ainslie teases Malachi about his bad dancing skills. The next day, the students prepare for Shania's arrival, and receive some letters from home. Ainslie breaks down in tears in the gym, emotion clearly showing, as Sinead comforts him. Pippa is also upset - her boyfriend has made a joke in his letter about another letter which must have got lost in the mail - Pippa confronts Jeremy about this, who explains that it was a joke gone slightly wrong. The Fame Academy wannabes are ecstatic when Shania arrives, as Richard introduces them all. Shania says that the Academy is lovely, and that she would like to stay herself! The masterclass is a success, and the singing superstar is delighted with the new versions of her song that she hears. The song written by Ainslie, Malachi and Sinead is also delivered to her - "Keep Me A Secret" - which also goes down well. The students really can't believe that they're getting compliments from such a well-respected artist. Once Shania has left, Ainslie gives an unexpected apology to Sinead - he feels that he's taking all the glory for "Keep Me A Secret" after being awarded the Grade-A prize, when it was really a group effort. Sinead reminds him that he didn't ask to sing it, and tells him that she's not angry at him in any way!moreless
