Kelly Clarkson is adding a third NBC TV show to her list of duties; during the Super Bowl, we saw the commercial in which she was featured promoting NBC’s new show, American Song Contest, a show she will host along with Snoop Dogg. The show is an American equivalent of Eurovision, the competition where each European country submits one contestant.
In a press release, Snoop Dogg said, “I am honored to host American Song Contest alongside my Lil sis Kelly Clarkson, aka Miss Texas.” Kelly added, “I have been a fan and love the concept of Eurovision and am thrilled to bring the musical phenomenon to America. I’m so excited to work with Snoop and can’t wait to see every state and territory represented by artists singing their own songs.”
The show will feature live music performances, with a solo artist, duo, or band competing from each U.S. state and territory to win the country’s vote for the best hit song.
Clarkson posted a video clip of the new show to her Instagram last night (2/13). She captioned it, “Huge announcement, y’all!! I’m so excited to finally share that I’ll be hosting @americansongcontest with @SnoopDogg!! I can’t wait!! Watch the premiere LIVE on March 21st, only on @NBC. 🎶
