2 Badda from Sydenham town has been given the big thumbs up by judges at the Open Mic UK auditions. Along with the other most impressive acts, 2 Badda has made it through to the Regional Finals and will now be performing at the live stages of Open Mic UK 2010.
Open Mic UK 2010 is the exciting national talent competition which searches for the UK’s best singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists of all genres who perform either covers or original material.
One contestant who has evidently caught the judge’s eye is local talent, 2 Badda now competing for a place in the National Final at the O2 in London and the chance to grab a break through recording contract. Thousands of hopefuls entered nationwide and hundreds of auditionees queued patiently on the day for their turn to impress the judges. But it was 2 Badda that wowed the panel and has now been given an opportunity to prove that he is the best on the Mic in the region. Those who made it through the audition stage will now take part in a live Regional head to head battle alongside the best talent in their area. They’ll be performing in front of hundreds of audience members and a professional judging panel to win a place at the National Grand Final.
Chris Grayston head of A&R at Future Music comments “We are searching for an act that not only has the live ability to impress an audience, industry judges and A&R associates, but an act that has the potential to become a professional recording artist. The standard was high last year and this year looks set to be even better.”
The winners will not only get to perform on stage at the 02, but they will be thrust into the media spotlight through television, radio and print media and all winners will be invited on the Open Mic UK Tour, which boasts 100 gigs across the country.
2 badda will be performing on 19th september 2010 @ Beck Theatre, Grange Road, Hayes, London UB3 2UB
