Glee Club is a British television programme that first aired on BBC One in 2011 and then on CBBC from 2012 to 2014 and is hosted by Sam & Mark.

Format[edit]

Series 1[edit]

In the first series, the glee clubs had to perform songs in different categories. There were three heats, a semi-final and a final.

Series 2[edit]

In the second series there were eight heats. In the first round the three groups took turns to perform part of the same song as an ensemble (but all on the stage at the same time) with points being deducted for any featured vocals. The second round featured the groups taking it in turns to perform a song of their choice, but this time allowing solo/featured vocals with points being awarded. The final round saw the glee clubs taking to the stage individually and performing their "survival song".

Series 3 & 4[edit]

The third and fourth series carried largely the same format as the first two series. There were five heats as opposed to eight, and there were only two rounds (with the second round featured in the second round scrapped). The third series onwards showed the selection process for the heats. Guest judges were also featured in this segment.

Throughout the heats, the judges score the clubs on vocal ability, creativity and performance and their combined score all together determined who wins the heat. The top 5 ranked groups out of all the heats were chosen to go to the live semifinals - whether or not the groups won the heat. The heat winners are awarded with medals. Promotional clips for Sport/Comic Relief are often shown in between each segment as the judges are verifying the scores. In earlier series (series 1 and 2), the total is out of 270, 90 points awarded for each round. Since the third series, a total of 240 points are up for grabs, 120 per round.

The live semifinals featured a phone vote, allowing viewers to vote for their favorite group; however, the judges still scored the glee clubs in the event of a tiebreak. The semi finals consisted of one performance from the glee clubs. The top three groups were put through to the final, where the same rules applied. It usually consisted of a guest performance.

The show is filmed at the BBC Scotland studios. Initial auditions take place in Glasgow, Manchester, London, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol and Newcastle in front of vocal coach John Modi. These initial auditions are often featured but not fully televised. The top 24 glee clubs are picked by Modi to progress in the competition.

Judges and presenters[edit]

Carrie Grant, David Grant, and Sisco Gomez served as judges for the first two series. The judges' auditions in the third series featured Carrie and David Grant, vocal coach John Modi (who also took part in the heats from the third series) and guest judges Dionne Bromfield, Stacey Solomon, and Joe McElderry. Gomez did not feature in the judges' auditions for the third series, but joined the Grants and Modi from the heats onwards. The fourth series featured Bromfield, Kerry Ellis and Erin Boag as guest judges for the judges auditions.

The show was presented solely by Sam & Mark for the first two series. Naomi Wilkinson presented the judges' auditions for the third series and served as backstage presenter for the studio shows while Sam & Mark presented the main show.
