Vote to boost Schmidt on SuperGroup

This Sunday, April 13, at 7 p.m. Cowichan’s Parker Schmidt will find out if his second stint on YTV’s The Next Star will be golden.

Voting is still going on, so if you want to boost Schmidt and his group, Electric Ave, check out the SuperGroup website, supergroup.ytv.com

On this week’s final regular episode, fans got to see the final two groups, Electric Ave and Rebel Coast, go head-to-head in a busk-off in downtown Toronto with Electric Ave winning the day.

But it wasn’t all fun in the sun with fans for the 10 guys left in the competition after both girl groups were eliminated.

The guys also rehearsed the music and choreography for their new singles and then went out and shot videos for them.

There was also a fascinating peek behind the scenes as Schmidt and the rest of his band, exhausted by throwing so much of themselves into rehearsing, took some time out for a meditation session, spooking out their rivals from Rebel Coast, in the tension-filled rundown to the big day.
