Emma Bunton rallies the nation in a thrilling search for Britain’s best new all-dancing, allsinging group. In this gripping grand finale, the surviving six groups give show-stopping performances in a bid to wow the studio audience and the public at home. The contenders are judged and mentored by a panel comprising Anastacia, Tamzin Outhwaite, Duncan James and Charles Klapow. Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton fronts this campaign to unearth Britain’s finest undiscovered talent. ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ has scoured the country in search of singing and dancing groups to take part in a major talent competition. The groups will be choreographed, coached and judged by a panel of industry experts throughout the live elimination shows. The acts that survive the public vote will then compete in a glittering live finale. The panel of judges features multi award-winning superstar Anastacia, who brings her unique personal and professional experience to the show. A worldfamous singer, dancer and songwriter, Anastacia has sold over 20million records. Tamzin Outhwaite will be looking for stand-out singing and dancing performances from the hopefuls in her role as judge. Currently playing the lead in ‘Sweet Charity’ in the West End, Tamzin starred in a huge range of musical theatre productions before becoming a household name as Mel in ‘EastEnders’. Award-winning singer, TV presenter and West End star Duncan James has experienced all sides of the entertainment business . He has sold more than 13million records as part of pop sensation Blue, has sung with music legends Stevie Wonder and Elton John, and has recently finished a hugely successful run in hit West End musical ‘Legally Blonde’. Emmy award-winning Charles Klapow completes the panel. Charles is best known for his awardwinning choreography on the iconic ‘High School Musical’ franchise. He brings energy, experience and a demanding eye for detail to the judging process. In this week’s grand finale, the winning groups from each previous round, plus the remaining wild-card group, will perform once again in a bid to be crowned champions. Every one of the six groups is full of promise, but the public vote can only produce one winner. The stakes are high, with the winning act gaining the life-changing opportunity to record its own album on iTunes. The record will be released through digital distribution experts AWAL, who helped kick-start the digital careers of bands such as The Arctic Monkeys and The Klaxons.

DaleDiva has taken out Five’s reality series Don’t Stop Believing, edging out Swish in Sunday’s finale.

The two groups were selected to perform fro the title in a sing-off after collecting more audience votes than other finalists Singer Station, The Three Spires Musical Society, The Songtimers and True DynaMIX.

DaleDiva’s mash-up of Celine Dion’s Power Of Love and Beyonce’s Single Ladies was enough to take the win over Swish’s Robbie Williams medley.

The all-female group had earlier impressed with a rendition of No More Tears.

Judge Anastacia commented: “There is not one reason any one of you women shouldn’t feel absolutely fabulous being up on that stage.”
