After a night of powerful performances and interviews, the judges made their decision and This Means Nothing in Mexico made the number one spot!
Nathan Ma, lead guitarist and singer, Jonathan Heggen on bass and Joseph Taculod on drums, make up the band and were just thrilled with the win.
Families and friends cheered them on as well as the fantastic Oh No! Yoko and Childsplay. All three bands did B.C. proud that night.

That extraordinary energy in the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre yesterday was created by 30 student reporters from Metro Vancouver who were at CBC for the big reveal of their stories, and attend a gala celebration.
Students spent six weeks researching, writing, and packaging stories that mattered to them. From video game addiction to teen plastic surgery, these students worked hard and put together some amazing work.
CBC staff and mentors were blown away by the talented group and felt a strong sense of pride to be associated with the event.
Kids were beaming with their own sense of pride and belonging, as they are now part of the CBC family.
