bit shit it ended on audience vote, therefore battle of the bands became who showed up with the most mates on the night. not really a pro approach when theres 500 quid on the line

if it really was all about audience vote, black dragon would have walked it - they brought 100+ friends, family and fans with them.

the audience vote was used to split the first and second placed bands.

any way u judge a botb is gonna be criticised

i think judges are the best way 2 go as crowd vote is just a popularity contest, gives the band more incentive to bring loadsa ppl, that way the just win without being the best band on the night, which is poor

however i know black dragon brought loads, so mr maggs must of been good, and there must of been more of a 50/50 cut of judge n crowd vote

well done 2 all the bands anyways heard it wos a slammin night, congrats mr maggs

Im really glad for mr. maggs, we have played a fair number of gigs with them and regard them as muckers, i know this was an important gig for them so well done boyos! I have played with said mike to and they are a good young band...

I mean i can hear mr maggs influences, especially in the guitars...and its good to see a band be a bit different so all the best to them.

would you really wanna win just cause ur mates vote for you? id rather win because im the best band there


good point mate.........but some Said Mikes mates aint gunna vote for Mr Maggs cause Mr Maggs were better on the night....or Black Dragon fans vote for Coronajones cause they have better songs..............things like that aint gunna happen mate.....................at the end of the day Mr Maggs bought enought people to vote for them and they played well on the night, so they won..........thats the nature of battle of the bands.........both Toast and Coronajones could of won but neither of them bought many people and they both didnt play very well on the night....................battle of the bands are taken way too seriously by everyone!!.............they are just a bit of fun, it doesnt mean anythink......yeah Mr Maggs won, but a band who got knocked out in the first round could get signed to a major label tomorrow and become the biggest new band from Wales...........debates will just go on, well done to Chappers for another good year!!!!!!!!...........but i would say do the heats in Aberdare and just have the final at the Pop Factory next time.......then people might come to the heats...............anyway the beers on me chappers:cheers:

good point rick my dear.

i'd rather win because i had the biggest knob.

i would have flopped it out (surely would have won the judges vote) but there were kids in the audience. a lot of kids actually - i couldn't say 'cunt' on the mic at any point due to the pressure of social responsibility.

which was a bit of a cunt - maybe it contributed to us fucking up the intro!

i dont mean to sound offensive but everyone knew it was partially crowd vote. Everybody had time to organise mates and family getting down there. We had less than everyone else as we went through the last semi final. And bieng mainly a risca band our mates had alot further to travel also. the thing is no-one is ever happy with the voting method unless you win. When we entered i didnt think we'd win it. I just thought of it as gigs as im not really a fan myself of how these things are judged. But i dont mean to knock mr.chapman with that. The whole thing was superbly put on and chapman what a turnout for the final hey!!! We all knew that crowd vote was part of the scoring if anyone has a problem with it why did they bother entering???

eggs-fucking-ZACTLY!

at the end of the day, it's not like a recording contract is on the line - the best band won (deservedly), why can't people just let it lie?
