Laughter from the audience and applause filled the Bardic champions event throughout the competition, but particularly during the finals. The crowded field was narrowed down to six performers, who were given challenges to perform in the final round by the Royalty. The final six are listed below with links to videos of their final round performances courtesy of Mistress Sol la Cantor.
