Kristin Chenoweth Pulling for Matt Mason to Win CMT’s ‘Next Superstar’ Competition
Kristin Chenoweth is well on her way to having her own career in the country music industry, as she’s gearing up to release her first album. Some of country music’s fans, however, were just introduced to the actress through CMT’s reality singing competition ‘Next Superstar’ when she appeared on the first episode as the guest celebrity judge.
‘Next Superstar’ began with 10 hopefuls fighting to win the competition and a record contract with Warner Music Nashville. This Friday (June 10), the show’s winner — Matt Mason or Steven Clawson — will be revealed to America in the live airing of the finale, after tallying all of the votes from fans across the country. Chenoweth has been keeping up with the competition and has her own favorite who she is rooting for to take the title.
“My favorite is Matt,” Chenoweth tells Taste of Country. “I love them both for different reasons, but I’m going to have to go with him. He’s overall the package. I think I’d go with him if I were [picking the winner].”
Fans of Mason can still cast their votes for the singer to walk away the winner of CMT’s ‘Next Superstar’ by clicking here or texting MATT to 32709, while fans of Clawson can vote for him here or by texting STEVEN to 32709. You can vote 10 times per day by each method, up until 10:00AM ET on Friday, June 10. The winner of CMT’s ‘Next Superstar’ will be named later that night, when the show airs live at 9:00PM ET on CMT.
