Thank you very much.
Thank you very much to the 33 bands that auditioned last week. Most of the bands that didn't make it through to Thursday's final required more rehearsal. Some of the original songs that had been written by the children have great potential and lovely lyrics. The key to a good performance at audition is practise and lots of it.
Congratulations to the top 12 bands who will battle it out in the final on Thursday 14th March 3.30 - 5.00:
FORMIDABLES, GALAXIA, THE FIDDLES, UNTITLED, CHECKPOINT, REPLAY, THREE LITTLE BIRDS, TEEN LIGHTENING, LITTLE PAPER PLANE, LETHAL, STORM BREAKERS & JIGSAW.
