AleXa wins the first American singing competition

Oklahoma-born K-Pop singer AleXa has a lot to celebrate when she was crowned champion of American singing competition!

During the first ever American Song Contest, which is the United States’ view of Eurovision Song Contest, 56 entrants from across the United States and U.S. territories competed against each other to achieve first place. Just like Eurovision Song Contest, points were awarded by 56 professional jurors divided into 10 geographic locations in the United States. Each jury member announced during the broadcast which competitors got 12 points, while other points appeared on the screen during the show.

After its eight-week run, AleXa, representing Oklahoma, found itself surviving each round. During the grand finale, AleXa finished fifth in the jury’s votes with 60 points. The professional jury voted Washington State’s Allen Stone and his song “A Little Bit of Both” for first place with 105 votes.

But the public votes helped AleXa take the top spot! The tele vote gave Oklahoma an additional 650 points, giving AleXa 710 points in total. Washington State scored just 254 points in total after the telecast, sending Allen Stone down to fifth place.

Colorado’s Ryker Lynch, who was originally last in the jury poll, rose to second place with 503 points after the remote poll with his song “Feel the Love.”

AleXa performed his song “Wonderland” three times during the competition. As winners of the competition, hosts Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson revealed that AleXa will be performing “Wonderland” during Billboard Music Awards May 15, 2022, and iHeartRadio listeners will be hearing her song all summer long!

After his victory, AleXa told Billboard, “It felt like my brain was exploding because my mom was holding my arm and she was crying and shaking so I cried with her.”

“It was a very emotional experience,” she added. “I share that moment with my team and everyone else ASC friends who were in the crowd meant the whole world to me. “

Congratulations to AleXa and her incredible victory during the preliminary competition!
