|After The Fire|
After the Fire were a contestant on the 1983 season of Best of the Year. They were eliminated in the Qualifiers.
Background[edit | edit source]
After The Fire were a British rock band that transitioned from playing progressive rock to new wave over their initial ten-year career, while having only one hit in the United States ("Der Kommissar") and one hit in the United Kingdom ("One Rule for You"). 
Qualifier[edit | edit source]
After The Fire's audition in Episode 198301 consisted of performing their song, "Der Kommisar". The performance was met with mixed reactions as the judges found the song bland and didn't feel that the song as a whole stood out to them. Their performance was not strong enough for the judges to send them to the Quarterfinals, eliminating them from the competition along with Asia and Champaign.
