Best Reality shows: Songland
Network it airs on: NBC
Years it’s aired: 2019 to present
What it’s about: Budding songwriters get the chance to show off their songs written for specific artists. They then work with other songwriters to transform their songs into something that definitely works for the artist they’re writing for.
This is a great show that offers a look at the songwriting process, while also helping new writers get the chance to show off their talents. At the end of each episode, the artist will pick one song and we get to hear the finished product.
Why it’s one of the greatest: There are a lot of singing competitions out there. Whether it’s American Idol or The Voice, they all lead to the same thing: a new artist on the charts. But many of these singers are just singers. What about the talent behind the songs?
Songland offers something different. It’s all about the songwriters, bringing fresh talent and giving them a chance to be discovered by other artists and production companies. It offers us a different look at the world of music, a side that deserves to be focused on more.
This is one of those shows that reminds us of the talent behind all the songs. I’m still waiting for Songland season 3!
