Two covers remain to compete for the Championship of the JamBase March Madness Live Covers Tournament. Voting is underway for the final two contenders vying for the title. The March Madness Live Covers Tournament is powered by the JamBase Live Video Archive (JBLVA), which features over 100,000 live music videos that are easy-to-find, filter and watch all in one convenient place.

March Madness began with Round 1 featuring head-to-competition between different performances of the same cover song, with only one version going on to compete against other songs in Round 2, Round 3 and the Final Four. Bands were only allowed one entry and each of the contested songs was written by a different artist.
