Miami was named one of those picked to move on to the next phase, joining cities that include Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and NY among others.

The closest southern city being considered is Nashville, Tennessee, and Atlanta, Georgia.

The victor city will be announced sometime this year, and while there is no specific release date, fans are expecting more information to be released in the near future.
