“It’s an amazing feeling to be Barclays Live UK Champions! We put in a lot of work to come up with a clean, entertaining piece and feel the effort has paid off,” said Nathan on their latest win. “We were up against some great acts and just want to thank everyone for their votes and continued support.”
