The shortlist of 24 acts played live in front of a panel of judges, including the Glasto guru himself Michael Eavis, at the finals in Pilton on 22, 23 and 24 March 2007.

Sounding like a shy Nina Simone, Manchester's Liz Green was the overall winner.

As well as playing the Acoustic Stage and opening the Other Stage at this year's festival, she will also record a session at the BBC Maida Vale Studios and feature on Radio 1.

The Epstein also won a slot on the Acoustic Stage, The Grim Northern Social will play the John Peel Stage, Dr Meaker will perform on the Dance Stage, and Feluka will be on the Jazz World Stage.

Now in its third year, the Emerging Talent Competition opened back in October 2006 to find new, unsigned acts for Glastonbury 2007.

"New music has always been the lifeblood of the festival," said Emily Eavis.

"This has been our biggest competition ever, with some really exciting new music."

Here are the bands that made it through to the finals:

The Subways were the victors of the competition in 2004, and The Deadbeats their successors the following year.
