“I’ve always loved him,” said Snoop. “I don’t know if she told you, the first time I met her, she was walking into an awards show and I was like, She walks like this and I said, ‘Kelly Clarkson, it’s Snoop Dogg. ‘ And she was walking, ‘Oh my god.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, it’s me.’ Because I recognize – I loved his voice, and I didn’t get a chance to shake his hand or hug him, but from afar, when I saw him, the first time I laid eyes on him, I called his name and Told him, ‘I’m a fan of your music.'”
related to American Song ContestThe show features artists from all 50 states, five US territories and the nation’s capital performing original songs in a variety of genres as they compete for America’s votes in an eight-week live event that will crown a grand prize winner.
With so many songs to choose from, Snoop told ET that it would be difficult for America to pick just one winner.
“It’s too much, too much heat in this show,” Snoop shared. “It’s going to be hard for America to pick it up, but that’s what we love about this show. There are so many songwriters from different walks of life who write great songs and this is the show that brings them out.”
Clarkson said, “It’s such a tough thing, we were just talking about this — there’s so many different songs in this competition, like genre, it’s so hard.”
While the show features everyone from newcomers to some famous faces, Snoop says the series is “out of the playing field.”
“It looks like whoever has the best song, or the best music, is going to win,” Snoop explained. “It’s not about appreciating what you’ve done. It’s about what you’ve done lately.”
“It’s like radio,” Clarkson continued. “You have people who have been around forever, new people, you have people who have just been around for a minute. We’re all competing on the same stage. You’re all at the same awards show “You’re all in the same radio environment, like it is, so that’s what I think is cool about it. It doesn’t matter whether people know you or not.”
