All Together Now 2019 concludes on BBC One tonight, and here’s a look at some of the singers on ‘The 100’.
All Together Now is the BBC’s latest singing contest, with a £50,000 cash prize up for grabs.
Headed up by Geri Horner of SPice Girls fame, The 100 are made up of specially cast members of the public from across the UK, all with a real mix of music backgrounds and singing credentials.
Each act will perform for The 100, willing them to vote with their voices, and stand up and join in. The greater the number that stand up and sing along, the higher the act’s score.
Geri will be joining them to offer her expert advice as a performer and provide support and encouragement to the contestants.
Meanwhile, Rob Beckett hosts the show which continues at 7:05PM tonight on BBC One with its FINAL episode of the new, second series.
Taking to the stage are male group Xavier, who sailed into the final with an impressive score of 97 as The 100 responded to their slick harmonies; and vocal powerhouse Bernadette who secured a massive 99 in her heat’s sing off.
Other acts include call centre worker Lywis, Nicola a full-time mum from Manchester, theatre usher Ben, Welsh teaching assistant Shellyann, trainee doctor Aron and performers Southern Flavor, who aim to keep the vibe alive with another upbeat number.
Performing songs by artists as diverse as Ella Eyre, Pharrell Williams, Cee Lo Green, Prince, U2 and Meatloaf, the three acts with the highest scores at the end of the night will perform one final time in a nail biting sing off, with a new song of their choice.
Which act has it in them to deliver a performance worthy of the £50,000 prize, and be crowned champion?
