Watch performances from the borough’s best up-and-coming musicians, then vote for your favorite act!

It’s the Battle of the Boroughs, and it’s back for a fifth season. We’re on a quest to find 2014’s best undiscovered performer from across all genres in New York City — soulful hip-hop acts, instrumental ensembles, pop-rock bands and more.

Emceed by WQXR’s Terrance McKnight and featuring guest judges Eren Cannata, producer/singer/performer; Alicia Olatuja, Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir soloist; and LaRonda Davis, president of the Black Rock Coalition
