JamBase’s March Madness Live Covers Tournament has reached Round 3. The fan-voted competition is down to the Elite 8 of covers battling to be crowned this year’s champion.

Following last year’s format, Round 1 was head-to-head covers of the same song. The top vote-getter for each head-to-head competition went on to Round 2 to battle against a different song. Round 3 again pits different songs against each other to see who will reach the Final Four.
