All Together Now - The Final

Ten finalists face off in front of The 100

Michael Rice (Hartlepool, Episode 1)

I could hear the audience talking beside me and I didn’t really want to look up at the 100, because I knew there was so many of them, but, somehow I got the courage to look up, and sing, and then I just got this feeling of utter joy when they started to stand up and join in.Michael Rice

Song that got you to the final:
Proud Mary by Tina Turner

Why did you choose that song?

I chose that song because it’s a really well known song and it’s just so irresistible, it’s impossible not to stand up and sing along.

How did it feel backstage before you performed?

I was super nervous! All the contestants supported each other, and wanted everyone to do so well, which kept me calm and positive before my performance.

What was the atmosphere like when you walked out in front of The 100?

I could hear the audience talking beside me and I didn’t really want to look up at the 100, because I knew there was so many of them, but, somehow I got the courage to look up, and sing, and then I just got this feeling of utter joy when they started to stand up and join in.

Did you watch your episode, what was the response from your family and friends?

My family and friends absolutely loved the show! They all came round to my house and we all sat in the living room and watched it together. They were up dancing and singing along to every performer.

Did you get to know your fellow finalists?

Yes. They were all so amazing, and very supportive of one another. We all stayed at the same hotel, and we were always in the contestant rooms together, so we got to know each other very well. They were such an awesome bunch of talented people.

What is your favourite all time song and/or artist?

This is such a hard question, there are so many amazing artists out there. Everyone is unique in their own way, so it’s impossible to answer.

How did you find being on the show with Rob and Geri?

They were both so lovely, and really encouraging towards me. Rob was just hilarious! They both made the show amazing.
