In the U.S. version of the international megahit, "American Song Contest" will feature live original musical performances, representing all 50 states, five U.S. territories and our nation's capital, competing to win the country's vote for the Best Original Song. An incredible solo artist, duo, DJ or a band will represent each location and will perform a new, original song, celebrating the different styles and genres across America. The live competition consists of three rounds as the acts compete in a series of Qualifying Rounds, followed by the Semi Finals and the ultimate Grand Final where one state or territory will emerge victorious.
As always, it'll be great to see a Wyoming artist showcasing their talent on the national stage, especially for the inaugural event.
We're rooting for you, Ryan Charles! Good luck!
