An incredible solo artist, duo, DJ or a band will represent each location and will perform a new, original song, celebrating the different styles and genres across America. The live competition consists of three rounds as the acts compete in a series of qualifying rounds, followed by the semifinals and the ultimate Grand Final where one state or territory will emerge victorious,” according to NBC.
