Farewell Angelina Singing "House of the Rising Sun" Will Blow Your Mind!

The full list of 2017 RISERS will be revealed on March 1. The newly crowned Hot Seat winners will get the same star treatment as the RISERS who were chosen by an advisory board made up of radio professionals, talent bookers, managers, streaming service providers and digital media members. The red carpet exposure includes video performances and interviews, photo shoots and exclusive coverage throughout 2017.
