The Irish star was great on Friday's live show, and all the teachers reckoned she should be the grade A student.
Headteacher Richard made the other staff give their reasons, with the best being: "She's the strongest girl singer that we have here."
She chose Pippa to share her prize - a night out to the star-studded premiere and after-show party of the West End musical Our House - The Madness Musical.
Three unlucky ones
But it could be the final good thing to happen to the girl from Hull, because Pippa is on probation again this week - for the third time.
Another probation veteran Katie will be joining her, with Nigel the final student having to sing for survival.
None of the teachers said anything nasty about the trio, just that they needed to start showing the best of their abilities and prove they have the talent to be in the Academy.
