As some of you know we took part in the Sky 1 HD show ‘Must Be The Music’ recently.
Following auditions in Birmingham we were invited to perform at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester for celebrity judges: Jamie Cullum, Sharleen Spiteri and Will Young (Dizzee Rascal was at the Isle of Wight Festival).
We did (we played Sway) and it went really well, some of our friends and family were hanging out backstage with Fearne Cotton and it was all a little surreal!
Anyway we got three yes’s from the judges (the first act to do that!) and some really great comments from them all. We were added to the shortlist for the judges to go through after the auditions were completed, they moved on to London and Edinburgh after Manchester.
About 45 acts made it to the shortlist for the live finals, they then chose 15 acts to take part in those finals and we didn’t make it to that stage. We were really pleased with the positive feedback and comments from the crew and judges through and had a fun (if long!) time during the process.
Jake appeared a couple of times in montages throughout the shows and we were featured (briefly!) playing backstage at the Bridgewater Hall too. There’s a pic below. If we get any images or video of our audition we’ll post it here – you can catch the show on Sky 1 pretty much all the time at the moment as they build up to the live finals and then the big final at Wembley.
