Font win our Immigrant Song Contest

ADMIN USE ONLY | 12:19 UK time, Friday, 15 May 2009

The votes have been counted and verified and we can reveal that the winner of our inaugural Immigrant Song Contest is Font!

The Iranian indie rockers, who were once jailed for playing a gig in their native Tehran, were praised by the judges for their musicality and staunch commitment to their art.

Throughout the competition many of you took the time to send us your feedback on the bands - thanks for that.

Now enjoy Font performing their winning version of Cliff Richard's Congratulations:
