We’re down to the Final Four of the JamBase March Madness Live Covers Tournament. Voting is open now for fans to select the two covers that will compete for the championship. 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 subsequent rounds. Bands were only allowed one entry and each of the contested songs was written by a different artist.
