About the Ryan Seacrest Cover Song Contest.
In September 2014, Bronnie was selected by Ryan Seacrest (American Idol presenter, E! News, OnAir and Keeping up with the Kardashian's etc) and invited to join his Global cover song contest after the presenter's team searched the internet site YouTube for up and coming artists. Previous entrants in the Ryan Seacrest Cover Contest have included British super group The Vamps, and artists such as Ella Henderson and Shawn Mendes.
At the time Bronnie was just 17 and became the only non-American artist to reach the final. She was also the youngest competitor.
Having been selected in a final line up of 13, she qualified through a number of rounds and into the Final of five acts. Although she started off with the smallest fan base of the competitors, her popularity grew as the competition progressed. Her cover song even caught the attention of One Direction's Louis Tomlinson who directed his Twitter followers to vote for Bronnie in the Final.
After winning the competition, Ryan Seacrest's website (www.RyanSeacrest.com) quoted "after narrowing down our search by hosting three fan-voted elimination rounds, Bronnie Hughes' rendition of the hit single (Amnesia) reigned supreme".
