The Hosts of the Show
The American Song Contest is a low-budget reality show, which might mean the hosts might not be of great popularity! But this is where the show has a green signal with bigger surprise, the emcees selected for the show are Kelly Clarkson and Snoop dog!!!
Clarkson rose to fame after winning the first season of American Idol, she has won many prizes and even won the Emmys for the daytime talk show named The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Snoop Dog is a renowned rapper from Long Beach Calif. He is the owner of Death Row Records and also co-hosts the Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner party.
The American Song contest follows the model of Eurovision. Eurovision is one of the best reality shows in Europe that pitches in acts from different countries competing against each other!
The American Song Contest takes 50 states along with Washington, DC, and other six territories of the US. In the act, the performance can be a solo or group performance of up to six members. They perform an original song in the qualifying round and later get selected to the semi-finals and then the finals!
The winners are announced by the way of a vote of fans or audiences and a professional music jury. The vote is not about getting the most popular vote but gaining as many as votes from different States.
The American Song Contest is trying to bring the vibe of Eurovision, by using spectacular sets and performance outfits. The performers are not only encouraged to write their own hit songs but to perform a big as well as memorable performance. This will definitely create a lot of interest among the viewers!
Since Eurovision is already a successful show, bringing in the ideas of that show along with a lot more developments and innovation will only add to the views and interests of the audiences.
