One of the members of our local Magical Society, Robert Bone has been successful in being voted onto the BBC’s ‘Upstaged‘ show. The daily fate of the Contenders will lie with the ‘upstaged’ online community.
The Members will decide which acts make it through by watching their audition videos and voting for who they would like to see. The Contenders with the highest votes will go head-to-head on two specially built glass stages in the middle of Millennium Square, Bristol. Here, they will try to entertain the nation LIVE for 6 hours straight. Their attempts will be streamed online and filmed for a BBC Three highlights show.
Presenter Scott Mills describes Upstaged as “a brand new BBC entertainment event open to anyone across the country who thinks they’re worth watching. In short, it’s like having your own studio where you can broadcast what you want to the nation live on the internet.”
After scrutinising their performance, the public will vote for their favorite act and the winner will stay on. The Champion will perform again the next day with a new Challenger brought forward to try and upstage them. The rivalry all comes to an end on the 30th March with the overall Champion winning something rather tasty.
Robert’s profile and videos on the site got him through to the next stage, allowing him to perform in the BBC studio in Bristol on the 5th of February. Here he’ll be performing for 6 hours straight. Make sure you check it out online from 3pm on the main Upstaged site. Make sure you show your support for him today, and good luck Rob!Tags: BBC, Magic, RobBone, Upstaged
