Snoop Dogg ‘honored’ to host ‘American Tune Contest’
New York: Artists Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson will host a “American Tune Contest” modeled after the beloved Eurovision competitors in a sequence to premiere in March.
The present will broadcast on the US community NBC and run for eight weeks earlier than a finale on Could 9.
It is going to function performers — solo artists, duos or bands — from all fifty US states together with one from the capital Washington and 5 from US territories.
“I’m honored to host American Tune Contest alongside my lil sis Kelly Clarkson, aka Miss Texas,” mentioned the rapper Snoop Dogg in an announcement.
Clarkson was the primary ever winner of the long-running music competitors “American Idol.”
“I’ve been a fan and love the idea of Eurovision and am thrilled to convey the musical phenomenon to America,” she mentioned in an announcement.
“I´m so excited to work with Snoop and may´t wait to see each state and territory represented by artists singing their very own songs.´”
The Eurovision competitors is without doubt one of the largest televised occasions on the planet.
“Think about if music was an Olympic sport and artists from all around the world got here collectively to compete for the gold. That´s the Eurovision Tune Contest,” mentioned “American Tune Contest” producer Anders Lenhoff in an announcement.
“The American model will probably be completely different than something seen earlier than on US tv, marrying the fanfare and pleasure of March Insanity and the NFL playoffs with the artistry and great thing about world-class performances,” the assertion continued.
“The American Tune Contest is a contest that occurs to be televised, fairly than a contest created to make a tv present. And it´s open to all singers with a music, whether or not they’re beginner artists or already signed to a serious report label. Nobody is excluded from the competitors.” (AFP)
