Nine of Sydney’s major media agencies went head-to-head last night in a hard-fought karaoke contest to win The Voice Agency Battle – Sydney.
More than 150 people attended the event, which was hosted by Ryan Gallagher from Married at First Sight at The Beresford Hotel in Surry Hills.
PHD was out in force, with the judges awarding Beatriz Grattan-Smith the top prize for her rendition of Dusty Springfield’s Son of a Preacher Man. Later in the night the broader team from PHD also brought the house down with their singing/dancing version of Tina Turner’s Nutbush City Limits.
Grattan-Smith took home a double pass to The Voice Grand Finale plus a $1,000 Merivale gift voucher for her agency team.
Judges Liana Dubois, Nine’s Sydney Sales Director, Alfie Arcuri, winner of the The Voice 2016, and Andrew Coorey, Live Band Karaoke Manager, scored the nine agency teams on vocal performance, stage presence, creativity and audience reaction.
The other contestants included:
Aiden Dabbagh and Danielle Galipienzo from Initiative, who sang Valerie by Amy Winehouse
Cameron Chu from UM Sydney, Under the Bridge by RHCP
Joshua Alvarez from Starcom, Drops of Jupiter by Train
Emelia McAdam from Wavemaker, Tainted Love by Soft Cell
