Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 8 - Chris Evicted
AIRED:
In the third Friday-night live show of the series, which the contestants have been looking forward to yet dreading, Pippa, Chris and Katie accept that one of them will not be going back to the Academy. Pippa gets a huge round of applause for her performance of "Eternal Flame," Chris surprises everyone with "Brown Eyed Girl," but Katie gets her notes wrong a few times when she sings "Can't Fight the Moonlight," which Carrie Grant is quick to point out to Patrick Kielty. As the phone numbers are given out, all of the other students sing the songs they've been practising all week, in front of the nation. Ainslie and Marli finally get to show off their raunchy dance routine as they sing "Come Up and See Me," a performance which obviously pleases their Headmaster, who says that that kind of performance is what he wants to see more of! Lemar gives his solo of "Let's Stay Together," which really excites the audience, and Nigel shows improvement as he sings "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" alongside Camilla. But Carrie isn't entirely happy, saying that Camilla was "under the note". Finally, new-boy David was teamed up with Sinead and Malachi for "Time After Time". After the fun songs and dances, it's time for the serious part. It's her second time on probation, and Pippa gets the vote of the public, getting 48% of votes from phone and interactive TV. She sits down alongside the remaining eight contestants to cast her vote. The contestants have to choose who, out of Katie and Chris, they want to stay. Malachi, Marli, Sinead and Camilla vote for Katie to stay, with the three girls saying that they had bonded with Katie. Nigel, Lemar, Ainslie and David cast their vote for Chris to say, judging on his performance that night, which was more impressive than Katie's. With the vote tied on four votes each, it's left to Pippa's vote. Even Patrick and Cat look surprised and excited by the tension in the studio. Pippa reveals that her vote was for Pippa to stay, and immediately apologises to Chris. Katie breaks down in tears, and tells Chris that she doesn't deserve the place. She then goes alongside Pippa, and they both promise to do everything that they're told next week, in order to prove that they appreciate what they've been given.moreless
