Choose the Cover contest finalists Lelia Broussard and the Sheepdogs rocked the Bonnaroo festivals with dueling sets in a battle of the bands hosted by Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharaoh. Neither band had ever played a festival of this size before, so both came into the experience feeling excited but also a bit intimidated. In these videos shot at the festival, Broussard and the 'Dogs talk about their personal Bonnaroo experience and what they're looking forward to as the competition enters its final weeks.

"Just being here is making me feel so great for living in the moment and just having fun right now," Broussard says of her Bonnaroo experience. Though getting to play this show was the result of months of hard work, she's ready to get back on the road. "I'm gonna hang out some more, see some bands, but I'm in Nashville tomorrow and New York on Tuesday, a crazy week in New York. Man, what a crazy ride!"


"The Bonnaroo festival is unlike any festival we've played at or any festival I've been to," says Sheepdogs frontman Ewan Currie. "Even before we went on stage, people were chanting 'Sheepdogs' and I felt like I was getting ready to play the Super Bowl, I felt super pumped up."
