    Aye the dressing up is a bit much tbh but it gives you plenty to laugh about. The age range is an eye opener as well, so don't be ruling yerself out on that Marty - Kids to 70 year olds (anyway) I've seen the lot :giggle1:

    Group position is decided by lowest total number from the votes.

    Top 2 in each group advance to quarter finals.

    Round 1 Results

    Thanks to everyone for the timely votes, excellent work. Below are the group standings following the first round of battles. Couple of early strong leaders and certainly all to play for to make the qualifying spots.

    How the voting went down...

    Round 2

    I've had a think about the theme for this round and given that I have already limited the competition to 80s songs, it might prove difficult for some entrants to fit some themes. Not everyone will have an abundance of tracks to choose from so I've decided to leave this round open again.

    No theme, submit any song you like...

    I will re-visit this for the knockout stages once I know who is still in, and remember, once a song is used that's it done for the comp, re-use in later rounds will not be permitted, including the final.

    So my inbox is ready folks... any song you wish :50:
