The top four bands selected by judges were So Long, Pluto in fourth, Atlas Soundtrack in third, The Zak Sobel Band in second, and 5 Cherry Lewis in first. The bands were judged based on originality, musicality, audience response, and overall stage presence.

So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
