    American Song Contest to launch in 2021/2022

    Rumours were floating around the last couple of days, but it has been confirmed now. Didn't know what subforum would be appropriate for this

    Thoughts?

    We get enough American music wherever we turn. I don't think yet another new contest is going to work.

    I think i'm gonna like it (see what I did here), more "eurovision" is like heaven to me and having the 50 states competing in an annual show like eurovision could be fun. Saying that all 50 states are just "american" would be wrong, there are dialects and flavors (mexican influence in the west states, country music, louisiane and the french language, hawaii or alaska). And to be honest, even if eurovision will always be more different a lot of songs are "radio-friendly americanized" today and that doesn't prevent us to have many different "americanized songs".

    I mean why not, Eurovision will always be the best, having a side contest like the junior one is just bonus for us.

    I think this could work in its own way.

    My worry is that it'll be too "Americanised", too much flash, too much shouting, reality type television. I'm visualising a weird Super Bowl type event

    Having said that, it has potential to be fun, but I think it'll be too X Factor. They won't be able to replicate the novelty and 'spirit' of Eurovision.

    I would prefer to watch Eurovision Asia.

    Is it actually happening? And if so, is it referring to a competition between 50 states, or a compettiion between the countries fo the two America continents?

    Either way, I'd be excited to see it if it's a competition between 50 states. My worry is that they'll have a bunch of clips between songs with "human story" and artist background and all that sentimental and drama crap they love to insert into all the othe reality tv. I couldn't watch that. Even worse, I would worry that this format would eventually spread to Eurovision as well.

    I think it would be good for Hawaiian, Native American and non-US language entries. I would be even more excited to see a Bundesvision-style contest for the UK though, either just have regions or have a massive competition with counties of England,Wales,Scotland and Northern Ireland!
