There are some incredible entertainers on tonight's debut of America's Song Contest on NBC, and of course, Minnesota is standing behind Yam Hause, the band out of Minneapolis. We met them last week on this very site.

A Minneapolis, Minnesota group started as a daily YouTube vlog, but soon were selling out shows around the Midwest. And now that group, Yam Haus, has made their way to Hollywood to represent Minnestoa in NBS's American Song Contest, starting March 21st, 2022 (that's Monday!).

Yam Haus was formed in 2017 in Minneapolis and includes Lars Pruitt (vocals), Seth Blum (guitar), Jake Felstow (drums), and Zach Beinlich (bass). Zach, Seth, and Lars went to high school together in Hudson, WI (just a hop, skip, and a jump across the Mississippi River about 30 miles East of the Twin Cities). Jake joined up in Minneapolis and bam, Yam Hous.

Tonight the Dream Becomes Real

As you watch tonight, if you wonder ANYTHING, write it down and ask me here, because later this week I'll have Yam Hause on the air and I would love to hear what you want to know. Email mere HERE or chat with me on our app.

According to this thread on Reddit -

They will be performing a song called “Ready To Go” that was originally a lo-fi track but is now a rock and roll song.

What Is NBC's American Song Contest?

Other Contestants from the Mighty Midwest

Iowa: Alisabeth Von Presley
Hometown: Marion, IA
Resident: Cedar Rapids, IA

Alisabeth Von Presley is a pink-haired pop-rock artist raised on a well-balanced diet of Pat Benatar, a plateful of glitter and a touch of Midwestern sass. She's as edgy as she is authentic and is an advocate for female empowerment through her music, lyrics, public platforms, and work in area schools. Alisabeth...recently played a show for over 16,000 in her hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. With her live shows drawing rave reviews, this girl is a performer to watch.

North Dakota: Chloe Fredericks
Hometown: Halliday, ND
Resident: Halliday, ND

Chloe Fredericks grew up listening to some of country music's great artists, including Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris, and often receives comparisons to powerhouse singer-songwriters Adele and Amy Winehouse. Her mom would always call Chloe her "little singing birdy" and some of Chloe's fondest memories are singing alongside her dad. She was raised on a ranch in North Dakota and learned the cowboy way of living - if you get bucked off of a horse, you get right back on. It's helped carry Chloe through the more trying times in the ever-changing music business.

South Dakota: Judd Hoos

I Think NBC's American Song Contest Is Including A Ringer

The oddest entry is, I think, the Alaskan representative. Jewel! I love her, seriously. The music she's been creating all these years is beyond amazing. It seems, though, a little unfair? Like putting Jo-Jo Siwa, a wildly successful and well-known dancer, in Dancing With the Stars.

Just found out Michael Bolten is in the contest, too. Maybe he'll have a  new pirate song?

It's not often it happens, but singers to turn actor and give up the music...I honestly didn't know about a LOT of these.
