'American Song Contest': Fans say South Carolina's Jesse LeProtti was lost among backup dancers
If you're big on state pride and fresh musical talent, then 'American Song Contest' is where the magic is at. With musicians representing each state on NBC's new singing reality show, 'American Song Contest' sees an eclectic mix of genres of performances.
LeProtti believes that if everyone in the world was from South Carolina, the world would be a better place. To him, South Carolina was the perfect mix of old and new and was a time capsule. Having grown up with not much, LeProtti spoke about how he has always put in the hard work when it came to his music. All set to perform his song, 'Not Alone', LeProtti noted that it was an ode to his mother, who suffered from multiple sclerosis, and he wanted her to know that she was not alone in her struggles.
Fans were torn when it came down to LeProtti's performance and didn't know what to make of it. "I did not expect that beat drop South Carolina #americansongcontest" tweeted a fan. "South Carolina channeling one of my favorite types of Eurovision song -- dance pop that sounds great in the studio but kinda sucks live! #AmericanSongContest" added a fan. "Once again too many people on stage, I keep loosing him in the crowd… #6PersonLimit #AmericanSongContest #SC" said a fan. "Props to SC for actually singing but this song isn't really doing anything for me #AmericanSongContest" added another. "This song is giving 2008-2010 #AmericanSongContest" noted another. "I know you're not alone, you have way too many backup dancers #AmericanSongContest" added another.
