US-vi­sion?!

Amer­ica is launch­ing its own ver­sion of Euro­vi­sion next year. The Amer­i­can Song Con­test will fol­low the same for­mat as the an­nual Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test, ex­cept it will be ex­clu­sive to those liv­ing and per­form­ing in the US. In­stead of one singer or group rep­re­sent­ing a sin­gle Euro­pean coun­try, artists will rep­re­sent a sin­gle US state, such as Cal­i­for­nia or Florida. The Amer­i­can Song Con­test will fol­low the same qual­i­fy­ing for­mat as the Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test, end­ing with an over-the-top live fi­nal. Amer­i­can Song Con­test pro­ducer Chris­ter Björk­man said: “To have a chance to use ev­ery­thing you know about the for­mat and redo it from the be­gin­ning and to bring it to an au­di­ence that has no his­tory with it, is such a priv­i­lege.”
