With March Madness right around the corner, sports fans are starting to get competitive…but we know musicians can get competitive, too! That’s why we teamed up with ESPN to bring you the “Who’s Next” Competition, where OurStage artists go head-to-head each week for the chance to get some sweet promotion on TV and online.
Here’s how it all went down:
Each participating artist was editorially selected by the OurStage staff. During each week from January 21 to February 18, two artists recorded their own cover of the ESPN college basketball theme song. Each artist was then featured during a basketball game broadcast of a college from their home state. After the games, fans voted on Facebook for the artist they liked best and in the final week, we added four new artists to the mix. The four winning artists from the first four weeks will take on these new bands for a shot at winning the Grand Prize”another placement and extra promotion during ESPN’s Championship Week.
All participating artists are now competing for the title of “Who’s Next.” You can vote for your favorite on the “Who’s Next” tab of ESPN Home Court’s Facebook page by choosing a bracket battle and selecting one of the artists to win that round. Voting will end on March 3rd at noon.
