Nashville Star 2 finalists named.
The 20 people who will compete as part of Nashville Star 2 have been selected. Unlike that other singing show, USA Network’s competition doesn’t limit the contest to people who only know Star Wars as the films produced by George Lucas after he went insane, not a military program or a 1970/80s trilogy. According to the AP, the new contestants “range in age from 18 to 39 and include a farmer from Kentucky, an actress from Alabama, a record promoter from Texas and a computer store clerk from Ohio. One is from Canada and another from Northern Ireland. One is nine months pregnant.” They’ll be narrowed to 10 during the first episode, airing March 6. Besides new judges, the show will also feature a challenge segment called “Hot Spot” where “contestants face a challenge they would likely come across as a professional recording artist.”
