NexCyx wins competition

Social Share

Local band NexCyx made the right moves when they won E! Entertainment’s Ryan Seacrest’s March Music Madness cover contest yesterday. 
The competition closed yesterday on Facebook and when tallied NexCyx’s Moves Like Jagger cover version had 62 per cent, way ahead of Paradise Fear’s Payphone with 18 per cent and Joanna Burns’ Harder To Breathe with 14 per cent and Chelsea Williams’ Daylight which only got four per cent.
NexCyx band members Andre, Chadd, Russ, Kris and lead singer Mahalia did the Maroon 5 cover and posted it on Youtube last year April. This year it was discovered by Seacrest.
In a previous interview Mahalia told NATIONNews: “We were surprised to hear we were in the competition . . . . Our fans have responded amazingly on social media platforms. We’ve certainly felt the love! From retweets to Facebook likes and shares, they have truly pulled out all the stops. It’s been amazing to watch them at work during what is an exciting time for us–and for our supporters. Through the contest, we have also gained new followers and have noticed new interest from people and brands who hadn’t been aware of NexCyx before,” she said.
