All Together Now - The Final
Ten finalists face off in front of The 100
The Sundaes (London and Brighton, Episode 1)
It is quite intimidating looking at that sea of faces all staring back at you saying ‘go on then - make me stand up’. But then the adrenaline kicks in and the music starts and we just loved every second.The Sundaes
Enough is Enough by Donna Summer and Shout by Lulu
Why did you choose Enough is Enough?
It is such a party feel-good song and almost gospel in feel. We wanted to sing something that makes everyone smile and feel happy. That’s what The Sundaes are all about.
How did it feel backstage before you performed?
It was a mixture of excitement and nervousness. Mostly as we had no idea if The 100 would get us. Thankfully they did. We also just wanted to enjoy ourselves as we truly believe if you love what you do and show that passion it can be infectious.
What was the atmosphere like when you walked out in front of The 100?
Tense! It is quite intimidating looking at that sea of faces all staring back at you saying ‘go on then - make me stand up’. But then the adrenaline kicks in and the music starts and we just loved every second.
Did you have to go through to the sing-off, how did that feel?
Yes, it was quite exciting really. And we loved the chance to sing again. We were in the Top Seat right up until the last performer (Michael) who got 100 standing. That moment was so exciting and we have become very close to Michael. We were so happy for him that it took us a while to then realise he had pushed us into second place and we would have to sing again.
Did you watch your episode, what was the response from your family and friends?
Of course we watched! We had a lovely little viewing party. Chocolate Sundae made cupcakes. The response from all of our friends and family has been exceptional. Also our social media has gone crazy. Everyone has been so wonderful in their comments and support.
Were you more nervous when it came to the final?
Not really. We of course wanted to do the best we could and were very excited about our song choice. We felt like we had achieved so much already just by getting to the final.
Did you get to know your fellow finalists?
We did. We have all become a little family now. We all got on so well. It really didn’t feel like a competition. It was more like a variety show with so many talented acts on the bill.
Best memory from taking part in the show.
So many to mention as we loved every second. Getting that first score in our episode was amazing, but we have to give a massive nod to the hair and make-up guys. They looked after us so so well and it was amazing to be pampered and looked after. We even cried when we saw them all on the final day. In a good way!
