Making the Band 2020: Premiere Date & Must-See Details

About 17 years ago, hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs partnered with MTV to find the next big thing: a talented artist or musical group. Hence, the show Making the Band. Out of the four seasons that aired, five acts were spawned and made famous: O-Town, Da Band, Danity Kane, Day 26 and Donnie Klang. Although some of these groups have disbanded and some have even branched out to pursue solo careers, you can’t deny that not only did the show display real talent but, it had some hilarious moments.


On July 8th, Diddy posted on his Instagram account how MTV producers had reached out to him about bringing back the hit TV series. He also began to receive support from rapper, Wale and comedian/actor, Seth Rogen, in hopes of this reboot coming true. “Sometimes you live in your own bubble. You may not really know the importance of something you created.”, states Diddy. “With Making the Band, myself and MTV, we created something special. We empowered young talent from all over the world.”

In a recent post, Diddy shared that it’s official: Making the Band will be making a comeback in 2020! But this time around, there will be a unique twist: Not only will Diddy and producers be looking for talent within the USA, but they will be trying to find global talent, as well.“That means if you’re from India, Zimbabwe, Russia, China, Korea, Africa, Saudi Arabia, if you have a talent and you want to be seen, and you want to be heard, it’s very simple. We’re doing the social by design. It’s a different time than when Making the Band was on before.”, says Diddy in the Instagram post.
