Recommended Posts

The team behind the Eurovision Song Contest has announced "The American Song Contest," scheduled to take place during the 2021 holiday season. 

"The American version of the Eurovision Song Contest will, as it is currently conceived, position the artists head to head against other states' representatives in a series of 5-10 televised Qualifier Competitions, leading to Semi-Finals and the ultimate primetime Grand Final," according to a news release on the Eurovision site.

"The Eurovision Song Contest's unique legacy dates back 65 years and its worldwide popularity is still rising," Martin Österdahl, executive supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, said in a statement.

"It's time for America to experience this spectacle, through its sister competition, the American Song Contest," he said. "Love of music is universal and celebration of music in different genres and styles can transcend boundaries and unite people. We are excited to have found the right partners to offer another series that our fans across the globe can fall in love with and to share this unique competition with the American people."

Leading up to the American competition will be the formation of The American Song Contest Academy, a group of US-based music professionals representing all genres and backgrounds.
