Round 2 of the Lip Sync battle


Following on from the success of their 2019 Lip Sync Battle for Netball which raised almost $8,000 for the Cobar Netball Association, winners Pumpettes, will be back to defend their title this year.

The Pumpettes netball team’s “over the top” choreographed 2019 ‘We are the Champions’ performance (which included some amazing special effects) was a winner with the judges and earned them the “Big Lips” trophy.

Team captain Kelly Fairbank is confident Pumpettes can win back-to-back titles as they have again this year signed award winning choreographer Sosie Barton to help with their routine. (The fact that they haven’t actually decided on a song yet is just a minor detail!)

Back this year also is Dolly Parton, but in no way shape or form does this Dolly Parton resemble Bryce Moore’s Dolly who wowed the crowd in 2019.

This year’s Dolly is destined to get more  comments along the lines of “Ummm how did they do that?”

80s music is the choice of the Cobar High School staff troupe who are planning to reprise a huge hit from 1980 that stayed at No 1 for six weeks on the Australian music charts.

(Even if you weren’t born in the 80s, you’ll be able to sing along to this catchy hit.)

St John’s School’s staff of entertainers have looked to the silver screen for their inspiration and their song of choice was a massive hit from a movie blockbuster made in 2012.

The Cobar Public School staffcast have yet to make a final decision on their act but it’s believed they have narrowed it down to something by AC/DC, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Stevie Nicks or David Bowie.

The WSPA Teens, who you just know will have some great dance moves, will be hard to beat but it’s expected their main competition of the night will come from the WSPA Senior Citz group, that’s if none of them break their hips during rehearsals in the leadup.

There’s a couple of guest performers this year, one of which is completely unknown (except to the organisers) while the other act is a hit from a popular Swedish quartet that has performed at numerous festivals.

The battle to find Cobar’s 2021 Lip Sync champions gets underway at the Golfie on March 27.
