American Song Contest: Second season is cancelled!
The U.S adaptation of Eurovision Song Contest took place from the 29th of March to 9th of May 2022, including five qualifying rounds, two semi-finals and a grand final which was won by AleXa from Oklahoma. All shows were hosted by Kelly Clarkson and Snoop Dogg and were aired from NBC. You can watch the winner’s performance below:
Ratings were lower than expected and there were several rumors online regarding the show not returning for a second season. Despite sources from NBC stating in November that the planning of the second season has started, Christer Bjorkman who was one of the producers of the show, confirmed while being in Spain for Benidorm Fest 2023, that the American Song Contest will not return in 2023.
He praised the production team of the show for their hard work while he stated his hope that the show will return in 2024. He also mentioned that five years are needed for the contest to be established in the U.S market.
While there is no official announcement from NBC regarding the cancellation of the show, by Mr Bjorkman’s statements it seems unlikely that the American version of Eurovision will return for a second season.
