P. Diddy Seeking Solo Artists From All Genres for 'Starmaker'

On top of his successful reality show "Making the Band" on MTV, P. Diddy will launch another star-search type of show via the same music channel. The rapper is on to select several talented artists with charisma to be picked as the winners of "Starmaker". The twist is, the selected ones will be made solo artists under Bad Boy Records.

Two people, a boy and a girl, of minimum 18 years old, will be chosen as the winners and get a signed contract with the label. Despite Diddy's status as the king of Hip-Hop, he will not limit the genre of musicians taking part in "Starmaker". From soul to country to pop, contestants simply must deliver their best at the audition dates.

Those interested can get behind the line on August 23 in San Francisco, C.A., August 26 in S. Louis, M.O., August 29 in New York, September 6 in Hollywood and September 9 in Atlanta. All doors will be opened at 9:00 A.M. local time. Contestants are required to prepare three songs that best represent their vocal range and may bring musical instruments when required. Application forms and more about the audition can be found at MySpace.com/StarMakerCasting.

"Starmaker" will be premiered by MTV in winter.

How about a real talent search, with real musicians playing original songs. Get the best unknown musicians in the country, bass, guitar, drums, singers, put them all in a room, and see if you can create the next super group like Led Zeppelin. P played with Jimmy Page on Kashmir, lets see him do something real and special. Rock music really needs something fresh and exciting again...

I think that your show gives a great opportunity for all talented music genres and styles out there,on the other hand i also think there need to be show that airs young singers like me who are under 18 years of age. In addition, there are great talents outside of Hollywood...you need to come search the small cities such as new jersey.

Seen the show and most of the people suck. My friend tried out for the show and made it all the way up to round before they picked the final contestants. She sings and performs way better than most of these people. Diddy is known for picking talentless naive people so he can control them and make them sign jacked contracts where they don't get paid.

Peace! My name is Damon Cicero Scott Aka" Ade'". I will be at your auditions and sorry I missed the last one. I may not have made the band but,I do believe stars and bells would go off in your head. I create lyrics,music and poetry song. I sing, my best attribute and I know how to do what it do. Listen to Ade at Southsiderockers world music creators. Its a site created by family to spread this message. In the words of a true great artist who had confidence in himself and in you Diddy," IN THE WRITE HANDS, I COULD ONE OF THE GREATEST" P.S. To those with excuses, I live in A shelter(Temporary)I sing for money and for other reasons,but for me there are no excuses. I promote who I am every day,now that I've figured out who that is. Hope and Change ! Holla!!!

I really wish that this was a nation wide talent search cause as someone said .. i dont wantto state thier names .. but you have so many amazing talents out there that should be discovered i am a singer and i also sing latin songs and i've been livin in the Bahamas for years now and it is so hard to get discovered.. especially when you dont know who to look and ask for .. it would have been so cool if Diddy had ask us to like upload videos of us singing well at least those who live in the americas and other places..

It would be an honor to become the next solo artist for you if i have this oppertunity i promise you i would not let you down i know you get this all the time but i am a daughter of a late great gospel singer and i know nothing else in this world would make him happier to fufill his dream as well as mine please consider giving me a chance i have never been great at making good decisions but i know an oppertunity like this would most definetly catch my mothers eye for once.
