So you’ve heard of the Eurovision Song Contest right, the music contest in which musical artists representing each European country battle it out for the prize of based best European song. Well, now America is getting its own version which will see the 50 US States compete against one another for the prestigious prize of the best American song.
Considering the Eurovision Song Contest began in 1956 its surprising it has taken this long for an American version to be launched, but here it is now anyway.
The artists will go head-to-head against other states’ representatives in a series of televised qualifier competitions, leading to semi-finals and the ultimate primetime Grand Final. The final is expected to air around Christmas time next year.
