How about we vote for someone that could actually idk...use winning the contest? You know some beautiful song writer nobody that plays a beaten up guitar(ala glen hansard) and could never afford any of the gear or the studio time the winner receives. A known musician/band member should not morally enter a contest where the prize is studio time and gear. Just seems fucked to me.

Are people already doing that thing again where they act like a mediocre pop-punk singer who toured with some mildly successful bands 3-5 years ago is a celebrity who can't look to advance their careers?

No, but I feel like a contest like this should help launch a completely unknown musician/songwriter (and I'm pretty sure that's the point of it). Like he really needs to win studio time and brand new gear?

at least Jimmie Deeghan has proven he's committed to making music and has shown he can do so with some (small) level of success.

I don't know why experience in the industry would be frowned upon. It's not like some former superstar is entering a bunch of contests, winning gear and then pawning it to buy a car or pay back debts. This is a struggling musician who has built a small, loyal following and is looking for ways to sustain that.

as average- sized as EA was, he is still at an unfair advantage. I am sure he already has half the stuff on the prize page anyway. you gotta leave contests like this to the struggling musicians.

Like the girl from The Voice, Cassadee Pope? She won it all. In a fairly small contest like this (i.e. not nationally televised), it's hard when one contestant has tens of thousands of fans already. We should be voting for the people that are the best, not the people with the advantage of fans.
