Band of the year: Finalists revealed WITH PICTURE SLIDESHOW

The final six have been chosen and will battle it out on Thursday in the grand final of Band of the Year.

Last week Chesterfield’s Somewhat Unprepared wowed the judges and won the second semi-final outright.

They join heat-one winners Fierce Morgan in the impressive line-up of local talent who’ll be taking to the stage at Real Time Live.

Also reaching the final of the contest, hosted by the Derbyshire Times and Real Time Live, are the four highest-scoring runners-up from both heats: Fly on Byrd, Fly on, Ben Miles, Blakshine and GTR.

The six finalists will perform in a bid to take the title, kudos and a sackful of prizes.

If you want to find out who will lift the trophy - as well as enjoying a great night of fantastic live music - get down to Real Time Live on Thursday, February 27 and cheer on your favourite.

The fun starts at 6.30pm.
