Kelly Clarkson will co-host the ‘American Song Contest’ with Snoop Dogg.

The cat is officially out of the bag, folks. Not only will Kelly Clarkson be co-hosting NBC’s American Song Contest, she’ll be joining forces with Snoop Dogg to give viewers commentary. However, the pair will not be judging if the singers advance throughout the show. According to USA Today, viewers watching at home and a panel of 56 professionals will decide the fate of the contestants.

The American Song Contest was inspired by the Eurovision Song Contest, which is an annual singing contest organized by the European Broadcasting Union. The original show consisted of European countries competing for the title. The U.S. version format includes singers representing all of the 50 states, the five U.S. territories, and the capital to compete for the top spot — all through the course of eight weeks.

USA Today shares that the first five episodes will feature 11 or 12 singers each week, with one contestant advancing to the semifinals. Then, two weeks of semifinals will start. Lastly, the 10 remaining contestants will compete in the live finale scheduled for May 9, 2022.

This is unlike any competition we’ve seen, but it’ll definitely make for great TV.

Catch new episodes of American Song Contest Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
