Everyone agreed the highlight was the round hosted by Lithuanian BeatBox star GON, who sang the Name That Tune round.

He beatboxed popular Lithuanian songs. Eyebrows were raised, people said “ooooh” to this new slant on things and come the mid-way break, MXF was told GON was “awesome.”

We’d also like to thank Waldemar from Lady Gothenburg who despite being let down by his team, still showed 303 Squadron spirit by turning up anyway. He said: “I would like to see a series of MXF music quizes in near future – a great idea and done professionally.”

So, from all of us at MXF, have a wonderful christmas and new year. We’ll see you in 2016!
