“‘American Song Contest’ will feature live new music performances – representing all 50 states, five U.S. territories and our nation’s capital – competing to win the country’s vote for the best hit song,” says NBC. “An incredible solo artist, duo or a band will represent each location and perform a new original song, celebrating the depth and variety of different styles and genres across America.”

Featuring 56 artists, the competition will span Qualifying Rounds, Semi-Finals, and the Grand Final.
