The Search for the Next Great American Band.
Nothing says “I can make you famous” like Reality TV. And now, the creators of American Idol are coming back with a new spin on a music/talent show. Tentatively called “The Search For The Next Great American Band”, this new show will bring us untalented folks at home not just one solo singer, but an entire band to adore or despise (imagine a whole band of sanajaya sound alikes- my ears are bleeding just thinking of it)
Wannabe’s of all different ages and music genres will compete in a battle of the bands week after week. Ten semi-finalists will perform in front of a live audience and much to the tune of American Idol, each week will feature a new musical theme. Garage bands will have to scat some jazz, while jazz bands will have to rock-out. The show will end in a head-to-head finale of the top three bands. A competition of bands seems much more exciting to me. More drama between the bands and let us not forget, more sexy guys playing guitars.
So this is your chance to put down your hairbrush and air guitars and try out for the real thing. For more info on how to audition click here.
And hey, if you aren’t musically talented (ahem, it took me a few years after I realized I can’t sing to let go of my wannabe pop star dream) but still want to try out, you can always end up as the next William Hung. Fame is fame right?
