The 12 contestants, along with their tutors, gathered around a video to watch their live performances from Friday night, to see how they did.

Teacher Carrie Grant said the students must improve
But the teachers weren't happy.


They said the contestants were flat and that they'd only give them 15 out of 100 if they had to rate them.

"The singing was dreadful," said straight-talking vocal coach Carrie Grant. "I'm a vocal coach, not a miracle worker.

"They need to be absolutely ruthless and think, 'I'm not here for mum and dad, I'm here for millions of people watching at home'".

Singing lessons

Even the students themselves weren't too impressed. Lots of them were worried about their voices and how big their features looked on TV.

But the 12 students, still on a high from Friday night's glitzy launch show, tried to stay upbeat.

They've all been trying really hard in their singing lessons and are still really enthusiastic.

Kicked out

Sinead Quinn landed the final place after a public vote
And they can't afford to let up - their first grades come on Monday, so it's not long before things start to get really serious.

The three contestants with the worst grades face being kicked out of the Academy on Friday - and will have to sing their hearts out live on TV for a chance to stay in.
