Four Bands Advance To Round 3 - See Their Reactions To The News

by Rolling Stone on Apr 26, 2011

Four unsigned artists are one step closer to making Rock&Roll history—gracing  the cover of Rolling Stone!

After hundreds of thousands of votes were cast online, only four acts remain in the hunt for one of the most coveted achievements in the music world: appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone. That final winner will also land an Atlantic Records contract, hyper-launching their career.
The four: Lelia Broussard, Empires, Fictionist and The Sheepdogs recently came to NYC where each recorded a hot new track with multi-platinum producers, performed in front of Rolling Stone editors and industry insiders.

Voting for this round will close on May 13th so your chance to influence the outcome is now. The two surviving bands will advance to the final round - an epic battle on stage at the Bonnaroo festival in June. 
The winner of the contest will be announced on the August 2nd episode on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where they will also make their live television debut.


Rolling Stone let the four finalists in the competition know they were moving on to the next round over Skype and filmed the results. In the clip below, you can be the voyeur and watch each act respond to the good news!
