Local band NexCyx is saying thanks to their fans who helped them get to the semifinals round of Ryan Seacrest’s “Best Maroon 5 Cover” contest.

The band is currently in top position with 66.61 per cent of the votes.

“We are incredibly grateful to our fans and everyone in Barbados, who have kept us in the running. This is an amazing opportunity for our band,” said Mahalia, lead vocalist.

The Bajan band advanced to this round after a keenly contested voting period.

Our fans really did an awesome job getting us through to the semifinals. We were even more thrilled when we entered that round at the top. Our hearts are warmed by the support that Barbados, in general, has shown us. It's humbling, really. NexCyx is excited about this opportunity. We see it as another way for people across the world to learn about who we are and our sound,” she added.

Semi-final polls for the “Best Maroon 5 Cover” contest are open until 11.59 p.m. on March 26, 2013.

NexCyx is a five-member band with a repertoire of hit music best defined as a pop-hip-hop-island made up of self-taught pianist turned producer (André), a drummer (Chad), bass guitarist (Kris), an dancer-singer-rapper (Mahalia) and rocker (Russell).
