NRS Series 6 Semi-Final

Jun 30, 2016 Blog

by admin

What a fantastic semi-final round we had! 20 (10 audience picks and 10 music industry pros picks) of our weekly prelim winners came back and shared 1 song each. The competition was fierce as our judges scored each song between 1-100 based on the commercial potential of the song. In the end, the top 6 songs were separated by less than a 10 point margin! But only 3 judges picks would move onto the final round, and 1 audience pick.The audience pick was very close, with a 2% margin separating #1 and #2 after thousands of votes were cast! We had a great live audience at Wild Wing Cafe, with well over 150 in attendance and thousands of people watching online worldwide!

Our winners from Nashville Rising Star Series 6 semi-final. From left to right, Keith Mohr (NRS creator/director), Austin Evans (music industry judge), Karla Davis (#1 judges winner), Joanna Yaeger (#2 judges winner), Jessica Rose (audience winner), Michael Whittaker (music industry judge), Sandy Ramos (music industry judge), Mark Cawley (music industry judge)
