The American Song Contest

I dont think that music variety is going to be an issue at all. I think actually that might the contests strengths for an American version. Im skeptical if it it will have the same cultural impact that is does for Europe. Who knows? This first year may not be popular. People will assume that its just another talent show, claiming to the be the biggest this or that. Across North America, Eurovision doesnt really have any wide notoriety. It will be interesting to see how this is done. Will it travel to the winning state? Or will it only be held in the usual suspected cities of NYC or LA. I hazard a guess to say yes. Even if their intention is to travel around to the winning state, i suspect if its not wildly popular, but just a mild success it will end up in LA eventually, with producers citing cost-savings. Blah blah blah.

'American music is a smorgasbord of sounds'
Analysis by William Lee Adams, BBC Minute presenter and Eurovision expert

Naysayers of the American Song Contest have said it will lose much of the intrigue of its inspiration - different countries showcasing their unique traditions and swerve on contemporary pop. But that suggests America is a musical sausage factory, pumping out interchangeable ditties and monotonous tunes. It is not.

Most states can claim some form of musical heritage, which locals take pride in or at least strongly identify with. Take, for example, the pop studios of Los Angeles, the country stages of Nashville, the hip-hop capital Atlanta or the Latin music hub that is Miami - American music is a smorgasbord of sounds that will make brilliant TV when displayed one song after the other.
