TEN finalists have been picked for Boris Johnson's London-wide busking competition.
The young buskers will compete for a year's license to perform on London Underground and an acoustic guitar, along with a Fender precision bass signed and donated by legendary musician Sting.
The competition is part of the London Mayor's Rhythm of London music education campaign.
Mr Johnson will announce the winner after a live 'busk off' at the Mayor's Young People's Consultation Meeting, 'Your London, Your Say', on September 17, at the Indigo O2 in North Greenwich
Over 1,000 young people, aged 13 - 21, will question the Mayor on issues ranging from crime to education and transport. Joining the Mayor and his advisers on the panel will be Ashley Banjo, a science student at Queen Mary university, who led the winning dance troupe Diversity on the TV series 'Britain's Got Talent'.
