If we have to start of the show with an emotion, it has to be hate, and conveying that theme tonight is Gav's Sky Ferriera

Hate

Closing this first round of songs, it's Miles Kane and mentor Luke who'll get angry if he catches you in the act of voting him low.

Closing the night of tonight, and a contrast to opening with hate, we end with love, it's Luke's Miles Kane.

Love
Miles Kane - Fire In My Heart

So thats all acts performed, and now it's time for you to vote. Too vote, simply rank the acts from 7-1. 7 being your favourite act, 1 your least favourite.

Results will be at about 10ish, maybe a little later. But as no jury is needed, you don't particularly need to hang around. So yeah see whoevers there for the results!!!

Sky Ferriera
Hate - 99 Tears
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xhz...c#.Udny6vk3uSo
Amusement - Paper Doll
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_xRUbDlT00

Foxy Shazam
Envy - Killin It
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2IPsu0yYbE
Note: the song was written about the lead singer envious about other peoples happiness and this is how he imagined it.
Disgust- Count Me Out
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HK-ISFNqrI
Note: Song is all about the disgust of love in the modern day era i.e young people saying they love someone at 14 and couldn't live without them.

Susanne Sundfor
Happiness - Stop
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shoIN5jyBdE
Shame - Ice Machine
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFPlGDKgiYc

Clare Maguire
Sadness – Happiest Pretenders
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGw6-DIyqWA
This song, Happiest Pretenders, is ironically filled with sadness.
Hope - A Change In Me
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zy_WhPrqaik
The song is about finding the strength, the hope, to make her own way in life.

Kitten
Pride - Junk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gh_UNxrKGaM
The lyrics have a "I don't care" attitude towards life, and even at one point says "f*** the future" i.e. she is above it all.
Pain - Catholic Boys
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Es6S5hc6s70
The lyrics is about the lead character trying to persuade her lover that she embodies the word "angelic" and is good enough for him which consequently leads to pain for the storyteller.

Two Door Cinema Club
Confusion - Handshake
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIOqiAPqa3g
Note: ''Familiar as you shook my hand, what was it you meant to do?''. The song is about the singer's initial confusion about the ending of a relationship, not knowing what prompted the other party to end it.
Surprise -What You Know
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXwYJyrKK5A
Note: ''In a few weeks, I will get time. To realize it's right before my eyes''. This song is about how the singer will eventually get over the surprise of finding out something about a partner, it is heavily implied that he is talking about the surprise of finding out that a partner has cheated i.e. ''Just remember, I know.

Miles Kane
Anger - Caught in the Act
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7y16uwxKLo&hd=1
Caught his girlfriend cheating on him
Love - Fire In My Heart
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJjdpKaJEfQ&hd=1
