We’re very close to crowning the first ever winner of the American Song Contest. But before we do, several acts had to battle it out in semi-final two for a spot in next week’s grand final.
As with the qualifying heats, the jury winner was given the first ticket to advance to the next round (i.e. the grand final). This was Tennessee’s Tyler Braden and his song “Seventeen”.
