Eight Bands Advance to Round Two - See Their Reactions on Video

by Eric Ward on Mar 16, 2011

And then there were eight!  This morning Rolling Stone announced 'The Great 8' - the artists moving on to round two in our 'So You Wanna Be a Rock & Roll Star' contest.  The eight to advance, and get one step closer to the cover of Rolling Stone, are Empires, Fictionist, Lelia Broussard, Mod Sun, The Romany Rye, The Sheepdogs, Skyler Stonestreet and Tha Boogie.  Not only were the bands flown into New York City last week to play a live showcase in front of music executives and Rolling Stone editors, but they went into the studio to record tracks with a major producer. Over the next few weeks we'll be sharing the new tracks and videos with you.  For the latest contest updates, be sure to like Rolling Stone on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.  You can also sign-up for email alerts.

The Great 8 found out they were advancing via Skype just days before they were flown to New York.  See their live reactions below.

Check out all the artists, and be sure to give 5 stars for your favorite act!
