'Songland's featured artiste Kelsea Ballerini reveals what she first notices about a song in sneak peek
In a sneak peek that was shared by the series, Ballerini hints at what she expects from the songwriters she will listen to on the show
When 'Songland' airs on NBC on Tuesday, June 11, Grammy award nominee Kelsea Ballerini will be joining the mentors/judges in search for her next possible hit song. Initiated by former 'The Voice' coach, 'Songland' is a reality TV competition series solely created for songwriters.
'Songland' revolves around songwriters and gives them a chance to perform an original song for different featured artistes who appear in each episode. Some of the artistes who have appeared on the show include John Legend, Jonas Brothers, will.i.am, Meghan Trainor, Kelsea Ballerini and many more.
The series invites four songwriters who compete with each other hoping to be the one picked by the featured artiste. Three songwriters with the best song will be chosen to work with either of the three mentors/judges, following which the main celebrity judge gets to choose the best out of the lot.
Last week we saw will.i.am appear on the series as the featured artiste. This week, when the episode airs we will see former 'The Voice' Comeback Stage coach, Kelsea Ballerini make her appearance as the featured guest.
In a sneak peek that was shared by the series, Ballerini revealed what she first notices about a song and much more. "The first thing I notice about a song is how it starts, which sounds like a cop-out. It's not," Ballerini says. "I think it sets the tone of if it's gonna be a song that makes you happy or a song that doesn't."
The singer also opened up about what kind of music she likes to write. "I've always wanted to write music that leaves you feeling good," Ballerini continues. "And even the songs about breakups and even the songs about heavier stuff in life, the darker side of life, I really like to at least have one little lyrical twist that makes you feel like you win by the end. I think it's really important to realize that even the darker side of things that happen sometimes, there's always something better on the other side. I think that a perfect song is whenever you're done saying what you need to say, it's done."
Apart from that she also hinted at what she expects from the writers for her new song. "On most days I love the music that’s going to get me out of bed and make me want to dance my way through the day." Some of the songs she is known for include, 'Peter Pan' and 'Love Me Like You Mean It'. We can't wait to see who among the four contestants Ballerini chooses as the winner.
'Songland' airs every Tuesday night on NBC. Check your local listings for more information.
