American Song Contest | Holiday Season 2021

The “Eurovision Song Contest,” Europe’s popular music competition, one of the world’s biggest televised events and the platform that helped launch ABBA, is coming to America. “The American Song Contest” is set to debut during the 2021 holiday season.

 

Hoping to siphon off some of the magic of the beloved six-decade-old show, which draws over 200 million viewers to its grand finale, the premise for “The American Song Contest” will remain similar to the European version. Professional musical artists — solo singers, duos or groups up to six members — from each of the 50 states and across every musical genre will perform all original songs on the live televised event.

 

The format, as it is currently conceived, will position the artists head-to-head against other states’ representatives in a series of televised qualifier competitions, leading to semi-finals and the ultimate primetime Grand Finale March Madness-style. Propagate Content will create The American Song Contest Academy, a group consisting of music professionals based in the U.S. that represent all genres and backgrounds, from which juries of artists and music industry notables who, along with the regional audiences, will select top talent from all 50 states to compete.

Only way I would not mind is if there was true musical diversity like songs in indigenous languages/styles, but we all know this will likely be 90% country and standard radio songs dominating :rip:

If it was North and South American countries it would most likely be referred to as the Pan American Song Contest though...

A white guy with a guitar singing country songs will end up winning.

I wish they opened this up to the 10 Provinces of Canada and the 32 states of Mexico.  That would be fun.

This is soooo stupid, at least stupid to call it the "american" eurovision. If we aint competing with other countries it is NOT the same.

 

As a show by itself, I will watch it lmao. I hope its a genuine songwriting competition and not just another celeb plug/american idol clone.

Will the winner
