The rap mogul will launch a new star search show on MTV that crown a boy and a girl to get a recording deal.
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.
