|On the BeeGees Special, four students were chosen by celebrity judge Robin Gibb to perform "You Win Again" - which four? ||"Fame Academy 2": The Songs
Alex, Alistair, Louise and Paris. The chosen four also sang individually: "You Should Be Dancing" (Paris); "To Love Somebody" (Alistair); "Words" (Alex); and "Too Much Heaven" (Louise).
|James Woods, Jeff Bridges and Rachel Ward starred in the 1984 film, "Against All Odds", but which Academy student covered the theme tune?||"Fame Academy 2": The Songs
Alistair. Alistair covered the Phil Collins theme tune, which is often referred to incorrectly as "Take A Look at Me Now". The other three have also performed movie tunes: "It Must Have Been Love" by Roxette from "Pretty Woman" (Carolynne); "Take My Breath Away" by Berlin from "Top Gun" (Louise) and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" by Guns N' Roses from "Days of Thunder" (Paris). Several of the students also performed songs from "Saturday Night Fever" on the BeeGees Special.
|Which student covered a Robbie Williams classic and later claimed on the live feed that: "I sound nothing like Robbie Williams... Robbie can't hit those notes as easily as what I can"?||"Fame Academy 2": The Songs
Barry. Robbie Williams is hardly looking over his shoulder! "Feel" was the first single released from his 2002 album, "Escapology," which achieved quadruple platinum status in less than three weeks. Despite positive comments from the judges, Barry could not avoid being expelled from the Academy after his rendition on Sunday, 7 September 2003.
|Peter is best remembered for his 'unique' physical performances including, of course, failing to sit on a chair in spectacular fashion, but which 1960s band/artist is he yet to cover?||"Fame Academy 2": The Songs
The Rolling Stones. Peter's performances have included "The Man Who Sold the World" by David Bowie and also Lulu, "Last Train to Clarksville" by The Monkees, "Glad All Over" by the Dave Clark Five and "Last Night" by The Strokes (who apparently would like their persona back, according to Huey from Fun Lovin' Criminals on BBC Three).
|Bryan Adams is clearly a "Fame Academy" favourite, with songs of his appearing in Week 2 ("Run to You") and Week 3 ("Heaven"), but which two students covered the Canadian's hits?||"Fame Academy 2": The Songs
Carolynne & Lorna. Carolynne sang "Run to You" (highest UK chart position: 11) on Wednesday, 13 August 2003, while Lorna covered "Heaven" (highest UK chart position: 38) on Saturday, 16 August. Both tracks are taken from Bryan Adams' 1985 album, "Reckless". It was Lorna's last appearance on FA2, as the students voted that night to keep Simone.

|Audley was the first student to be expelled from the Academy back on 9 August 2003. Which song did he perform that night, causing Academy Head Teacher, Richard Park, to exclaim in his usual constructive fashion: "I'm in two minds, that was either bad or awful"?||"Fame Academy 2": The Songs
"My Girl" by The Temptations. Sadly for Audley, The Temptations' 1964 hit (which was co-written by Smokey Robinson) did not prove a winner, losing out 7-4 in the student vote to Gary. "Me and Mrs Jones" was the song which had originally won him his place in the Academy. "Back for Good" and "Hero" were sung by Alistair and Nick, respectively, in their heats.

Alex. Originally a number one hit in both the UK and USA in 1981 for Soft Cell, this was, of course, performed by Alex on 30 August 2003. As of week 6, Alex is the only student who has not appeared in the bottom 3.
