Hi, I wonder if I could ask a favour of my Facebook friends please? Some of you may know that I have been fortunate to make the Open Mic UK Final at the NEC next Saturday. The national text voting has gone live today. If you enjoy my music could I ask you to text OPEN67 to the number 84222 and to share with your friends and family to do the same? It's been a really good experience for me doing this, boosting confidence and getting me writing again, playing to such a big audience has been lovely, would love to do more of it and your vote is much appreciated. Thanks so much, Ju xxxx
The Open Mic UK Grand Final will be held on Saturday 23rd January 2016 at The NEC, Birmingham.
The winner of the Grand Final will be crowned as the Open Mic UK 2015 Champion in front of a huge crowd and a music industry judging line up including A&R representatives from major record labels, some of which have the capacity to change professional music careers forever.
Voting is now live, so the public can check out all the acts and vote on who they believe should win Open Mic UK 2015.
On Monday 18th January, the list below will be updated with a leaderboard of the top placed acts. The leaderboard will be updated on Wednesday 20th January and Friday 22nd January.
In order to win Open Mic UK you must be in the top 3 judges’ scores in your age category. Those acts not in the highest judges’ scores will be eliminated before counting the texts votes.
For those acts in the judges’ top 3, their scores will be ranked and added to the text voting, which will also be ranked. The acts with the combined highest ranking from audience and judges votes will be winners. The winner, runner-up and third position will be announced on the day for each age category, and the overall winner of Open Mic UK 2015 will be announced by Tuesday 26th January 2016.
