Here Are Your 10 American Song Contest Finalists

These Contestants are going to the Grand Final! 

By McKenzie Jean-Philippe

The last of two American Song Contest Semi-Final episodes aired on Monday, May 2. Twenty-two Artists performed over the span of the episodes, and only 10 will move on to the competition's Grand Final on Monday, May 9. 

Like the Qualifying Rounds, the ASC Jury of music industry experts gets to automatically advance one Artist per Semi-Finals episode to the Grand Final (so two Artists total). For the April 25th episode, they selected Allen Stone from Washington state. And for the May 2nd episode, they picked Tyler Braden from Tennessee. The other eight finalists were determined solely by fan votes. The four Artists with the most viewer votes from the April 25th advanced to the Grand Final, as did the four Artists with the most viewer votes from the May 2nd episode. 

See the full list of all 10 American Song Contest finalists, below.
