On-Demand Video: The Ultimate Battle of the Boroughs
Friday, June 27, 2014
It's the ultimate showdown! Hundreds of up-and-coming musical acts entered, 60 were chosen to compete and now voters have picked our five finalists. One musical act representing each of New York City's five boroughs will compete on Friday, June 27—but only one can take the crown.
Emceed by WQXR’s Terrance McKnight and featuring guest judges Helga Davis, of Philip Glass' Einstein on the Beach and a Q2 Music contributing host; Bob Power, award-winning, multi-platinum record producer, mixer, engineer and musician; and Marion J. Caffey, producer of Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater. The five borough representatives compete for bragging rights and big prizes, including a showcase spot at the famed Apollo Theater's Amateur Night. Voting closes after the show, and the Ultimate Battle Winner will be announced live on stage.
Watch and vote!
UPDATE: Voters chose Manhattan's 5j Barrow as the 2014 Ultimate Battle winners! Look out for information this fall on their live concert in The Greene Space.
