#vfuk2016 Day 1

Well, it’s been a rollercoaster ride for our University singers today. We saw an extraordinary range of music, from songs in a foreign language (Tous les Memes by Stromae) to some killer versions of Adele’s Hello.

We didn’t envy the job of our judges, Yvette, Paul and Richard, who had to pick only five of the twelve groups to proceed to tomorrow’s final. Congratulations to

The Bristol Suspensions
The Songsmiths
Cadenza
Aquapella
The Rolling Tones

who succeeded in impressing the judges and will be battling it out to become the next University champions!

Special awards also went to:

The Songsmiths for Outstanding Overall Performance
Cadenza for Outstanding Musicality with their performance of ‘The Way You Look Tonight’
Zara Tso from The Rolling Tones for Outstanding Individual (a brand new award for this year!)

For those that have been asking – we don’t have many tickets left for the University Final, but the limited few available will go on sale at Box Office tomorrow at 10am.

To celebrate the success of all our singers (who totally did themselves proud today, no matter the result), we’re wrapping up the evening with the ‘Acachallenge’. It’s traditionally lead by our very own Michael Humphrey but he’s disappeared to the Caribbean this year (huff) so the wonderful Ed Scott is taking up the mantle and leading our singers through a well-deserved relaxed singing and dancing sesh!
