Lots of stuff starting to emerge about The American Song Contest coming to NBC next year. That it’ll be awful is probably a given.
However some stuff has come out regarding the format that’s a bit more interesting.
“There will be a series of qualifying heats to determine which states and territories move forward, followed by March Madness-style semi-finals and the ultimate grand final where the winner will be crowned.”
This does not sound like the Eurovision. It does, however, sound very much like Melodifestivalen, Sweden’s extremely popular national song selection competition, but I guess that doesn’t quite have the same brand recognition.
