  • As the band got on stage, the crowd went wild.

  • As the band got on stage, the crowd erupted into wild cheers/cheering.

What is the most natural way to phrase the second sentence if I want a similar meaning as the first sentence? Should it be "into wild cheers" or "into wild cheering" or something third?
