The Voice alumni Kelly Clarkson and Snoop Dogg (pictured) have come on board as co-hosts of NBC’s previously announced singing-competition format, American Song Contest, which has set a premiere date of March 21.
Adapted from the long-running Eurovision Song Contest, the show will feature an artist, duo or band from every U.S. state and territory as well as Washington, D.C. Each artist will perform an original song and compete for audience votes through three rounds, with one song ultimately emerging as the winner.
The series will run for eight weeks, with the final round scheduled for May 9.
In addition to their hosting duties, Clarkson and Snoop Dogg will also serve as executive producers on the show. The other credited EPs are Audrey Morrissey, Anders Lenhoff, Christer Björkman, Peter Settman, Ola Melzig, Gregory Lipstone, Amanda Zucker and Kyra Thompson, as well as Propagate’s Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens.
