On last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host revealed the top two finalists in the Choose the Cover of Rolling Stone contest. Jimmy was pretty excited, and for good reason. The winner – who will appear on the August 18th cover of Rolling Stone and sign a record deal with Atlantic Records – will be announced on his show on August 1st, where they will make their live television debut.
The two finalists, narrowed down from a pool of 16 incredible unsigned acts, are the Canadian boogie rockers the Sheepdogs and Los Angeles singer-songwriter Lelia Broussard. If you’re not already familiar with the bands, you can check out videos, free downloads and interviews, or catch them when they play an epic battle of the bands at the Bonnaroo festival on Saturday, June 11th from 2 to 3 p.m. Festival-goers will be able to text in votes during the performance.
Voting in this round will close on July 1st, so make sure to check out the bands and vote for your favorite!
