Singing Souls: We’re the Singing Souls.

Ant and Dec: They are Louise, Tasha and Hannah: three students and lifelong friends from Wilshire. They think they have what it takes to better than all of them.

Hannah: We’ll show the judges that we are better than the Sugar Babes. We’re all very, very powerful singers when we want to be. We are going to show the judges what we got. And we are going to show the judges what we need to win this competition.

So it’s time for the girls to show the judges just what they’re made of.

Simon: Okay, guys you are . . .
Hannah: We’re the Singing Souls.
Simon: The Singing Trolls?
Hannah: Souls. Do you want me to come down there?
Simon: Sorry. The Singing . . .
Hannah: Souls.
Simon: Okay, tell me girls, what’s the sort of dream here? Who do you want to be like in seven or eight year’s time? Spice Girls?
Hannah: Anybody can outsell them. Anybody could!
Piers: What’s your ambition? Okay, girls, best of luck.
Hannah: Thanks.
Ant: Not a lot of moves in this.
Dec: Not a lot of stage presence.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Simon: Girls, can I be honest with you? That is one of the worst groups I have ever heard in my life.
Hannah: You want to come here and sing, Simon? Cause I’d like to see you sing.
Simon: Look, girls, here’s the deal: You sing; I judge. That’s the way it goes.
Hannah: You sing — and I judge you. Because trust me, I can be just as bad as you.
Amanda: You are grounded.
Hannah: Bite me.

Ant: Let’s get out of here.
Dec: Negative words.

Simon: Look girls: you sound like three cats being dragged up the motorway.

It was just awful.

You know, and to compare yourselves with the Spice Girls, it’s just crazy.

Hannah: Yeah, but Spice Girls couldn’t sing anyway.

Ant and Dec: She’s got an attitude. ATTITUDE!

Louise: You can be rude, sometimes. I know what you say is true, but you can be rude.

Ant and Dec: He can. I guess you’re right, he can be rude.

Simon: Well, actually, you put it much better than your friend. So I accept that. So you should be the spokesperson. You just switch places with lippy.

Time to say yes or no. Piers?

Piers: It’s going to be a no. Sorry.
Amanda: It’s going to be a no for me, girls.
Simon: Okay, it’s a no girls.
