Episode Summary

EDIT
FA2: Episode 19
AIRED:
The eight remaining students sing for survival, and the viewers are given highlights of the past week in the Fame Academy, which has finally seen the claws come out, and the bitching begin. The girls are uncomfortable with Barry - who they think goes too far with his comments, and then accuses them of being "stroppy" when they question him about it. Even Alistair agrees with the girls. The show also sees the spat between Patrick and Richard continue. Richard still doesn't like being interrupted by Patrick, and doesn't like how Patrick wants a "happy clappy atmosphere," because it's unrealistic to expect this. Barry opens the show this week with "Sweet Caroline," but the judges are not impressed with his performance. Carrie says that he would never make it onto Top Of The Pops - but Barry comments that not all of the students would want to make it onto that show. "Mature artists perform on Top Of The Pops," Carrie argues, and asks Barry whether he really wants to stay as a "karaoke singer" like he is now. Barry asks the judges to be honest with him in future before the live show - "If I stay in tonight, will you tell me what you mean?" he asks, to large cheers from the crowd and his fellow students. Alistair is next, singing "Against All Odds". Carrie, David and Robin are impressed, but Richard isn't too sure about the performance. Peter sings "Man Who Sold The World," and his performance is great as always, although there is still room for improvement with his vocals - but the teachers are impressed nonetheless. Carolynne sings Shakira's "Underneath Your Clothes". Carrie and David think that it's a brilliant performance, and David even goes as far to say that it's better than the original. Richard Park disagrees, "It is that kind of dangerous comment that will make Carolynne think that she is better than she really is," he says, and he and David argue about this. Patrick simply comments that it's good to see Richard arguing with somebody else rather than him for a change! James sings "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" The public are shown footage of him saying that he thinks he is the most talented in the Academy - but will the teachers agree? Carrie tells him that while the others have evolved and progressed in their performances, he hasn't, and there has been no real change since his first performance. Paris sings "Misty Blue," and Richard comments that his voice was "a bit thin". Will this prevent him from staying in the Academy? Finally Alex is up, singing "Tainted Love", to massive praise from all of the teachers. The phone lines open for the public to vote for their favourite. Who will be leaving the Academy this week?moreless
