The Showdown Series Progression

Every Monday for the last 8 weeks, a dozen singer/songwriters have vied for a chance to compete in the showdown finale to win over $14,000 in prizes. Each week one singer/songwriter moved on to the December 7th grand finale and at least one runner-up made it to tonight’s competition, with a hope for a spot in the finals.

The Showdown’s Voting Method

To select the winner, the Tin Roof Acoustic Showdown producers collected two votes for artists from the fans. Each act also got to vote for two other performers as their favorites. Peer voting counted for five points and fan votes for one point.
