WITH the prize being the chance to perform on hit television show, Popworld, in front of an audience of millions, it's no wonder so many bands - including Huntingdonshire groups - are displaying their art on the online showcase.
Daniel Flay, from Huntingdon, having reached number three in the ratings, have now been invited to play in London in front of some major labels on June 27.
Daniel said: "At the end of each month, the bands which reach number one go through to get prizes. We have reached number three but we have been invited to play at a showcase at Gibson Guitar Studios. Before, the competition seemed so far away. It's surprising that things happen really quickly. I would like to thank everyone who voted for us."

Flay's new line up includes Eleanor Walker on flute, Mick Roman on drums, Jaime Randall, bass and Flay on guitar.
The premise of the competition is simple. Artists put their song on the site to listen to with a couple of pictures and in some cases a gig list, and people can vote; either by downloading the song (which, although costing £1.50 is the biggest way of boosting their score), listening to the track or texting in.

What's encouraging for the Cambridgeshire scene is the success of some of our local acts, as well as Daniel Flay, Loop, 9foldpunch, Dead Letter Society and Alex Harris are competing. At the time of going to press, all of our acts are doing remarkably well. Daniel Flay is in at number three, 9foldpunch at 18, Alex Harris (as Alex and the Dynamics) at 22, Loop at 33, and newcomers Dead Letter Society in at 64.
"We can't believe it. We have a lot of good mates and fans but nothing like some people and we have got this far." Martin Holt, lead singer of Chatteris-based hard rockers Loop tells me. Having received over 11,000 votes so far, he, and every other local act associated with this massive showcase deserve to be proud.
