viewer’s choice will join Nashville Star 2′s top 10 finalists tomorrow night.
Nashville Star 2 is already down to 10 finalists, and it’s only been on the air one week. (By comparison, American Idol 3 has been on for seven weeks and only now has its top 12.) On tomorrow night’s second episode, one lucky country singer will join the top 10, having been voted in by the audience. It will be Laura Sullivan, Anessa Andrews, Brad Cotter, Austin Hanks, or Rachel Williams. The current top 10 consists of George Canyon, Gregory DeLang, Jennifer Hicks, Brent Keith, Matt Lindahl, Sheila Marshall, Stacy Michelle, Lance Miller, Mal Rodgers, and Marty Slayton. The episode airs at 10 p.m. ET.
+ also: Nashville Star “is attracting a different kind of talent than the mainstream pop star-making machine over on network TV.”
