A new talent competition series is coming to YouTube and is looking for everyday singers to submit their best cover videos. Hosted by actor and hip-hop artist Ludacris, the Best.Cover.Ever will feature fans submitting unique covers of their favorite artists' biggest hits.
The show will include featured artists such as Keith Urban, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Backstreet Boys, Charlie Puth, FLo Rida, and Jason Derulo. Throughout the series, a new artist will challenge the aspiring singer to perform a cover of one of their original songs. Participants can perform the song in their own unique style as they battle for the opportunity to perform a duet with the superstar artist that will premiere on YouTube.
Country star Keith Urban is very excited to see what talented individuals emerge from this upcoming competition. “The internet is the ultimate vehicle for creative discovery," said Urban. “It connects people, lets their talents be heard and sometimes produces stars. I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens – to hearing how people interpret my songs – and, fingers crossed, to find a killer duet partner."
Submissions for Best.Cover.Ever. are currently open. Fans must upload a video to YouTube performing their creative cover of one of the artists' hits. For more information, visit TheBestCoverEver.com. The show is produced by Ryan Seacrest Prods. and Endemol Shine North America.
However, if you'd rather listen to Urban sing than be his duet partner, the country singer just teased he's working on new music!
On Wednesday, July 19, Urban shared a photo with the caption, “Back in studio !!!! - KU." The “Fighter" singer dropped his most recent album Ripcord in May of 2016 and spent much of the last half of the year on the road for his Ripcord World Tour, with Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris as his special guests. Can't wait to hear what's coming next from the talented superstar!
