  Fame Academy: shock as Marli's out
Updated 08 November 2002, 21.42
Marli was booted off Fame Academy
There were shocks in Fame Academy on Friday as Marli was booted out and Katie stayed in.

Marli, a former grade A student, was voted out by her fellow contestants who unanimously chose to keep Malachi in the mansion.

And 18-year-old Katie got to stay in, despite the fact that all of the teachers said she performed worse on the live BBC show.


Katie was speechless at the end of the show
But the teenager got 47 per cent of the public vote, proving that you don't always agree with the teachers!

Katie, who's never hidden the fact that she's never sung pop songs before, wowed the crowd with her cover of eighties hit Perfect by Fairground Attraction.

Malachi impressed everyone with his version of David Gray's Babylon.

But Marli's performance of old time classic, Tracks of My Tears, wasn't enough to keep her in.

Nigel and Ainslie

The Academy students sang backing vocals for Mariah Carey
Other highlights of the night included a live performance by Mariah Carey, who ran a masterclass in the Academy this week.

She performed her new song, Through The Rain, with the Fame students singing backing vocals.

The rest of the students weren't left out of the limelight either.

Sinead looked upset at the end of the show
Sinead and Lemar sang their version of U2's I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, and unlikely pair Nigel and Ainslie covered The Police's Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.

Newcomer David, who was named grade A student this week, sang one of his own songs at the piano.
