Chevrolet has teamed up with Billboard to hit the road to the Billboard Music Awards.
Congratulations to Patent Pending! The winner of the 2012 Battle of the Bands.
Music and driving go hand in hand. Which is why Chevrolet is proud to help new artists get discovered and help fans hear new music.
After giving you the chance to play judge in a Battle of the Bands featuring some fantastic up-and-coming artists and groups, the winning band went on to perform live at the Billboard Music Awards.
After over half a million votes, the field was narrowed down to 6 regional finalists. Representing the Midwest was Take the Day. From the Northeast – Patent Pending, from the Southeast – After the Smoke, from the West – Doe Eye, from the Northwest – Savannah Outen and from the Southwest – Saints of Valory.
After a great competition and a whole lot of fun, we’d like to congratulate Patent Pending on winning the battle. We can’t wait to see what they do next.
