The panel had to pick the two top acts and then it was down to the audience to pick the overall winnner.

Melvin said: "On the (judging] panel it was an unanimous vote for you guys straight away."

Punk-metal outfit Blackout Retrospective from Wakefield were runners up in the competition.

The Candy Girls Scarcroft and Bardsey won the junior section for a polished dance set choreographed to Cristina Aguilera's Candyman song.

Bramham We've Got Talent raised 3,000 for a new village sports pavilion thanks to volunteers and supporters.

Annual fun run Give Us A Mile In Your Own Style is the sports and leisure association's next fundraiser in June.
