Hollywood Life spoke with Superfan’s co-producer Keltie Knight, who co-hosts the show alongside Nate Burlson, about what sets this music competition series apart from countless others. We were in search of a program tailored to individuals whose talents might not be immediately apparent. There are plenty of shows on TV with talent: The Voice, American Idol, etc. You should be able to sing. I can’t. When it comes to America’s Got Talent, being able to strut on stilts, showcase dance prowess, manipulate flames, or feature a canine with impressive tricks is a must. Not everyone is talented. Some of us are Taylor Swift fans, and that’s our talent. Our mission is to bring our ensemble together.”

Her words persisted, “I held the belief that an avenue should exist for individuals without conventional talents, affording them the opportunity to achieve significant success within the realm of music My husband is a music executive. I’ve lived my entire career around the music beat, so I’m truly a fan of this. I’m a fan, and there needed to be a show for fans.”

The co-host revealed, “Hundreds of thousands of fans” auditioned to be part of Superfan. Chosen fans to compete in the series will get the chance to spend quality time with their idols and live out their dreams.

Keltie mentioned, “It’s not a five-second meet-and-greet where you look at someone and then they’re rushed away.” “I think the stars were genuinely blown away because they never get the chance to spend this kind of time with fans. LL Cool J was really affected. He said, ‘I know I have fans, but I didn’t realize people cared about me this much.'”

E! News correspondent emphasized that these music artists “truly care about their fan base.” She recalled how Kelsea could have a profound impact on one of Little Big Town’s biggest fans. “She wanted to sit with someone for four hours after taping. She wanted to hug every person in the audience. She was there, so moved and so excited, and loving on her fans. It’s really heartwarming. It’s really special. Recognizing that this show is my brainchild and holds a special place for me, I concur,” Keltie Knight affirmed.

Keltie Knight revealed that there was an emotional moment with one of Little Big Town’s biggest fans. An 84-year-old woman named Caroline, competing in this season, told the country group how much they meant to her. “She was like, ‘Okay, I want to tell you that I have a plan that after you guys sing, I’m going to sing after you. I’ve made arrangements for my final arrangements, and when they put me in the ground, your song will play.’ Philip Sweet of Little Big Town was crying. I said, ‘It’s weird to say out loud, but also, wow, you really love Little Big Town.'”
