The BEST episodes of Songland

Every episode ever - ranked by fan votes!

In each episode, 5 songwriters perform their original songs in front of 3 top music producers: Ryan Tedder, Ester Dean, and Shane McAnally. Each song is considered by the panel in a discussion about ways to creatively adapt the songs to better fit the style and sensibility of the recording artist of the week. After the performances, the recording artist chooses 3 songwriters to move forward to the studio, and each is paired with one of the producers to help perfect their song. In the end, a winner is chosen, their song is recorded, and it is ready for release on the night of the broadcast.
