If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/28/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

My pick tonight is a twist on the songster reality competition show, Songland. Instead of singers, this time the contestants will be competing to be the top song writer. Each week, one guest artist (including Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor, Kelsea Ballerini, Macklemore, will.i.am, & more!) will visit “Songland” to hear unknown songwriters pitch their original material. Four songwriters will perform their original tracks in front of the guest artist and three big-time producers in music: Ryan Tedder, the lead singer of OneRepublic and a four-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer for Adele, Taylor Swift, and Beyoncé; Ester Dean, a Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer for Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj, as well as an actress who starred in the Pitch Perfect film franchise; and Shane McAnally, a Grammy-winning songwriter and producer for Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson, and Sam Hunt, who has 38 #1 country records and was named the 2019 ACM Songwriter of the Year.

Each song’s lyrics, arrangements, beats, melody, and story will be considered by the panel as the producers and guest artist engage in a lively discussion about ways to creatively adapt them to better fit the style and sensibility of the recording artist of the week. After the performances, the guest artist will choose three songwriters to move forward to the studio and pair each songwriter with the producer best suited to perfecting their songs. In the studio, the songs will take shape in unexpected ways as the songwriter and producer duos work together to win over the recording artist. In the end, a winner will be chosen and their song will be recorded and released for a global audience. What a fun twist to the other music competition shows, yeah?

On tonight’s episode, “John Legend,” undiscovered songwriters are put center stage as they pitch their original material to mega-star John Legend and a panel of chart-topping music producers.

Check out this fun new show tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Jeff Dunham: Talking Heads, America’s Got Talent, MasterChef Junior, Chopped, The Hot Zone, Jeff Foxworthy: Stand-up Guy, Blood & Treasure, & Sweet Home Sextuplets.

Megan’s Choice

Tonight is the 14th season premiere of America’s Got Talent, and we will not be seeing Mel B or Heidi Klum on the judging panel this year. Their chairs will be taken by Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough. I am actually really interested to see the different vibe that is brought by these two talented ladies and also by the new hilarious host, Terry Crews. It is going to be another exciting season filled with some incredible new talent and new dynamics on the judging panel.

On tonight’s episode, “Auditions 1,” variety acts of all types and contestants of all ages audition for the chance to win the $1 million prize. The Golden Buzzer is back, giving five lucky acts the chance to go directly to the live shows at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to compete.

To see what the new season brings, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef Junior, Songland, and The Hot Zone.
