I don`t see how this can be the American Eurovision if the result is winning a record contract. Most Eurovision participants already have a record contract and most often they are huge stars in their own country. So this looks more like American Idol pt 2 for me.

"An online competition will be held to find singers from each US state to go forward to the grand final, with the winner landing a recording contract."

So really it`s nothing like Eurovision. Just another singing competition with a record deal.

I think this is another reason why American states should be declared seperate countries.

lupin american idol is not a rip-off Simon Cowell took it other their

I know that. It`s exactly the same show (Made by the same person) but with a different name- to me that counts as a rip-off even if Simon did make them both.

Eurovision is about cheese- i wonder if the american version will be able to keep up with that. And American Idol is a rip-off of Pop Idol.

^They won`t be obsessed because they`ll all be watching the rival Idol which has been on the air for what? 5 years now? At any rate, the Idol fans will stay loyal, while those who can`t stand singing shows won`t tune in. Of course, I only watch Idol in the beginning phases so I can laugh at the people who are so bad at singing. And for those of you who would yell at me saying "I bet you can`t sing!" No, I can`t, but I`m also smart enough to not go on to a national program and prove it to millions of people.

I can`t imagine it working in the US. I mean some people in Europe taking it worryingly seriously, and really get beind their countries, but I don`t think people would be so obsessed about their state...

I don`t reckon it`ll fly. I mean, American Idol was already a rip-off of Eurovision, so why would this rip-off be better than another rip-off that`s already out there? Ah, it doesn`t matter, if it sucks, we can just turn it off.
