WEEK 2/ Task 2 – Music Knowledge Test
A major part of being a DJ is to be able to identify music. This week we played a montage of five songs and the stars had to identify the artist and title of each song. They received 1 point for artist and 1 point for title of the song for a possible high score of 10. To make things a bit easier we chose five songs from the stars favorite genre of music.

WEEK 1/ Task 1 – Hitting The Post Of A Song
The contestants task for week 1 was to “hit the post” of a song. Each contestant randomly picked a song and had to talk over the intro of the song they picked. The trick is not to talk too long or else you talk over the lyrics, say too little and you leave a awkward gap before the lyrics kick in.
Week 1 WINNER: Marcus From Thunder
