ACM takes home Silver at the Univision Song Contest 2024

26 Apr 2024

ACM’s rhirhi wins second place at the Univision Song Contest. 

The UK’s largest inter-university song contest took place for its fourth year at the University of Surrey.  Five artists from universities across the country performed to a live audience in the event broadcasted to Surrey’s Stag TV Youtube channel. 

Alys, winner of Univision 2021 and an ACM Alumni opened the show with her upcoming track The Other Women.

Commercial Songwriting Student from the London Campus rhirhi competed against acts from BIMM, Leeds Conservatoire and the Universities of Surrey and Exeter. Her song of choice Not Fun is the title track of her ep out May 25th. Rhirhi pulled heartstrings and gave it her all, despite a dramatic technical fault with IEM.

With both a public vote and – in true Eurovision fashion – votes awarded by representatives, ACM placed just shy of first with only a couple points in it. Both BIMM and Surrey awarded ACM the maximum amount of points, rhirhi also received a whopping 28 points from the public votes.

Maybe next year.
