The Voice Contestants Have Some Advice for the American Song Contest Artists
"Have fun and know this is the moment."
This article originally appeared on NBC Insider.
The Artists competing on NBC's new music competition show American Song Contest have a lot on their plates. Not only will they be singing on live TV every week, they'll be performing an original song. So not only do they have to hit all their marks, they have to convince everyone watching that their song is the best of the bunch. No pressure, right?
For the unfamiliar, ASC is formatted similarly to the popular Eurovision Song Contest and sees 56 Artists—each representing either a U.S. state, territory, or Washington D.C.—competing head-to-head in the fight to win Best Original Song. After several rounds that follow an intricate voting process, one Artist will emerge victorious. But the journey to that point will be filled with drama, high stakes, and, yes, lots of glitter.
It's something the Artists on The Voice know quite a bit about—not to mention Coach (and ASC Host) Kelly Clarkson. (Remember, she got her start as the first winner of American Idol.) Like American Song Contest, The Voice has a live-television component and requires the singers to deliver memorable performances week to week.
We asked a few of the Voice Season 21 Contestants if they had advice for the ASC Artists ahead of the series premiere on March 21—and there's a through-line in all their answers: Stay true to yourself. Click on over to NBC Insider and get all the scoop!
