Even Better Than The Real Thing

Paddy McGuinness hosts Even Better Than The Real Thing,  Five acts pay tribute to music legends including George Michael, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and John Lennon.   Each performer will sing an iconic hit made famous by their musical idol, before the studio audience choose their favourite three to perform again. This time they pull out all the stops with a very special collaboration, as they are joined on stage to duet with another tribute artist paying homage to another legend.  After the duets round the studio audience vote again for their favourite act of the night, and that performer is crowned ‘Even Better Than The Real Thing.’

Kinetic Pixel supplied and managed a system of over 400 wireless keypads, supplied by our partners at Clikapad, and ran our bespoke voting and aggregation software to gather and present the vote results to the production team in real-time as the audience made their decisions.  The entire vote could be gathered and collated from 400 keypads in less than two seconds.

The keypad vote is the climax of each show; The acts learn their fate on stage as soon as the vote is completed.  Reliability and speed were the key requirements from BBC Productions, and we delivered ensuring the vote could be presented quickly on stage.
