The sixth season of Nashville Star is set to premiere on Monday, June 9 from 9 PM to 11 PM ET on NBC. Billy Ray Cyrus will be hosting, while John Rich, Jewel, and Jeffrey Steele will be serving as judges and mentors. As previously reported by Reality TV Magazine, Taylor Swift will be performing on the Nashville Star 6 premiere episode.
Also, on the Nashville Star 6 premiere, the auditions will be highlighted and the top twelve finalists will be introduced. However, the names and some biographical information about the top twelve finalists has already been revealed.
The Nashville Star 6 finalists will include not only solo artists, but also duets and trios. One of the finalists is a thirty-two year old mother of five, while another finalist act consists of a duet of two high-school friends.
The names of the twelve finalists are Alyson Gilbert, Ashlee Hewitt, Charley Jenkins, Coffey, Gabe Garcia, Justin Gaston, duet Laura Fedor and Sophie Zalokar, Melissa Lawson, trio group Pearl Heart, Shawn Mayer, trio group Third Town, and Tommy Stanley. Be sure to check back to Reality TV Magazine, because complete bios and photos of the finalists will be posted soon.
In the premiere episode, the top twelve finalists will perform in front of the judges, and the judges will eliminate either one or two of the acts from the competition (a recent release from NBC said one act would be eliminated, while a previous release said two acts would be eliminated). In future episodes, viewers will vote to decide which acts will be eliminated from the competition.
