When is Songland coming back on the air? What happened to it? These are questions we’ve been hearing a lot of over the past few weeks, as it’s so incredibly odd that the show was shelved midway through what was a promising run.
Yet, it turns out that there was a method to NBC’s madness — we don’t know if it was a successful one, but it is a method nonetheless. Their strategy seems to be to try and give both this show and Bring the Funny as much juice as possible from America’s Got Talent. When Songland returns on August 14, it will be at a new time in Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time. It will still air after AGT, but this time around we’re talking about the results show. Hopefully, it still finds a way to retain some of its viewership. We’re talking about arguably the best new reality show of the summer (sorry, Love Island), one that celebrates the creative process and lets artists live their dreams. Some of the songs featured on the show have found a good bit of success — “Green Light” from the Jonas Brothers sold extremely well as a single, while “Be Nice” from the Black Eyed Peas has generated more than 8 million views on YouTube.

When Songland returns on the aforementioned date, it will do so with an episode fronted by Macklemore. For more on that subject, take a look at what we’ve got for you below:
“Songland” serves as a destination for music’s biggest stars to find their next hit song. Undiscovered songwriters are put center stage as they pitch their original material to mega-star Macklemore and a panel of chart-topping music producers. Viewers get an authentic peek into the creative process behind songwriting as three of music’s most successful and sought-after writer-producers, Ryan Tedder (Adele, Taylor Swift), Ester Dean (Rihanna, Katy Perry) and Shane McAnally (Kacey Musgraves, Sam Hunt), produce the songwriters to creatively adapt their songs to perfectly fit Macklemore’s style. One song is chosen to be recorded by Macklemore and released for a global audience the same night.
Macklemore is an interesting person to bring in given that so much of his music feels personal to him — these writers need to figure out how to make a song sound like a Macklemore song, both in terms of message and vibe. It also needs a crazy hook in order to work.
