‘American Song Contest’: Who is MARi? The stylish New Hampshire singer has what it takes to be a superstar
With 56 contestants representing all 50 states, five U.S. territories, and the nation’s capital battling for the people’s vote for Best Popular Song, the “American Song Contest” is one of reality TV’s biggest series ever. sung in the country. The 56 entrants range from young talent to up-and-coming new artists and emerging stars to established and well-known legends. Each region will be represented by a unique artist, talented duo, group or band, who will perform an all-new original song that reflects the breadth and diversity of musical styles found across the country.
The winners will be determined by a fan/audience vote as well as a committee of music professionals. Each state has equal voting strength due to the weighted vote. However, it’s not about getting the most votes in the popular vote; it’s about getting the most votes in as many states as possible, and the system prevents more populous states like California and Texas from getting a disproportionate number of votes.
