How did singer Pa. perform on “American Song Contest” last night (4/11/22)?

A singer from Pennsylvania appeared last night to represent the Keystone State on the original song contest show, “American Song Contest”.

Bri Steves from Philadelphia sang “Plenty Love”.

Although she was not chosen by the national jury as the winner last night, she was in the jury’s top four and could still move on to the competition when viewers are revealed three semi-finalists next week.

Washington’s Allen Stone was the jury’s choice. The rest of the jury ranking was Jared Lee, The Crystal Method and Steves.

Viewers also learned that last week’s artists – Ni/Co from Alabama, Riker Lynch from California and Grant Knoche from Texas are the semi-finalists.

Last week, the national jury chose Tyler Braden of Tennessee with his song “Seventeen” to move on to the competition.

The live singing competition includes 56 artists representing all 50 states, five U.S. territories and the capital, Washington, D.C. competing to win the nation’s vote for top hit song, NBC said.

The show is based on the “Eurovision Song Contest”, which, according to NBC, has been “organized for 65 years by the European Broadcasting Union and watched by 200 million viewers every year…”.

The competition consists of three rounds as artists compete in a series of qualifying rounds, followed by the semi-finals and the ultimate grand final where one state or territory will win.

A national jury of 56 music experts chooses a winner in each qualifying round. Then viewers have until Wednesday morning to vote on the NBC or TikTok website or app to choose three more to move on. These three artists will be selected by the jury and viewers and announced on next week’s show.

During the qualifications, 11 or 12 artists will perform each week. During the semi-finals on April 25 and May 2, 10 artists will perform.

The grand finale will take place on May 9 with the top 10 artists.
