Hope’s Got Talent winners to perform at Liverpool Sound CityWednesday 16 March 2016
This year’s Hope’s Got Talent saw 20 amazing acts audition over three heats all trying to book their place in the Grand Final at the Capstone Theatre.
With a full house watching, and the show streaming live around world, the pressure was on as the final eight acts performed for our three judges Post Doctorate Teaching Fellow in Popular Music Veronica Skrimsjö, First Year Resident Student and THIS Radio DJ Olly Crawford, and Nicko Otaegui, member of The Tea Street Band, Artist Liaison & Emerging Talent Manager for Liverpool Sound City, and a Hope University Alumni.
The judges chose first year band The Left Backs (Ben, Lucas, Max and Nathan) and second year student Thomas Vail to face the public vote. The Left Backs came out on top, with over 250 votes placed. Nicko was so impressed with the talent on display that both Tom and the Left Backs have been given the chance to perform at the international musical festival Liverpool Sound City this summer.
