Lady Gaga and Dolly Parton to compete in the Liverpool Liv Sync Battle
Liv Sync Battle returns to the city on March 15 and performers will battle for the chance to compete in the final 2019 showdown with money raised going to Radio City’s Cash for Kids appeal
This month you can see Destiny’s Child, Bananarama, Dolly Parton (and Kenny Rogers) and PJ & Duncan all in the same Liverpool venue – well, kind of.
On Friday, March 15, Liv Sync Battle returns to the city, taking place in Circo in Seel Street. Based on the US TV show Lip Sync Battle, competitors will put all those hours of practice with a hairbrush in front of the mirror to good use and mime to their favourite artists.
Hosted by The Guide Liverpool’s Jay Hynd, the event will see acts battle for the chance to compete in the final 2019 showdown and money raised will go to Radio City’s Cash for Kids appeal.
For weeks prior to the big night the performers have been preparing with professional choreography, backing dancers and a series of rehearsals. And, as if learning how to not sing was not enough, each act also has to perfect and perform a dance routine too.
Among the performers will be personal trainer Jenny Grady with her Shakira tribute, trainer Carly Trew bringing Lady Gaga to the stage, Bethany and Laura with a treat from Grease, and Abbie & friends from Liverpool Media Academy are showcasing Steps with a medley of some of their most popular songs.
The winner of each round is determined by audience vote, with the top three acts returning for the December final. You can show your support for Cash for Kids and our acts by coming along on the night, or making a donation to their fundraising page on the Cash for Kids fundraising platform.
Each Liv Sync Battle round has raised funds through sponsorship and voting for local charities including Alder Hey Children’s Charity and Roy Castle Lung Castle Foundation.
There will be two ways to vote for the winner on the night; with on-the-night cash voting and phone voting. To date Liv Sync Battle has raised around £30,000 for local causes.
