Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson to host US Eurovision
US rapper Snoop Dogg and singer Kelly Clarkson are to host the new American Song Contest, modelled on the long-running Eurovision Song Contest.
The live singing competition will feature artists from all 50 states.
Snoop Dogg said he was honored to be anchoring it “alongside my lil sis Kelly Clarkson, aka Miss Texas”.
Clarkson added: “I have been a fan and love the concept of Eurovision and am thrilled to bring the musical phenomenon to America.”
The contest will feature 56 singers, duos or bands – one from each state, plus the capital Washington, DC and five US territories – who will compete for the honor of having the country’s best new original hit song.
The eight-week TV show will premiere on 21 March on NBC, with the grand final scheduled for 9 May.
