There's a new talent competition series coming our way.

The Hub's latest project is a reality show called Majors & Minors, which will feature young talent as they compete their way to the top.

The young singers (minors) range anywhere from 10 to 16 years old and will be mentored by "majors" such as Adam Lambert, Avril Lavigne, Brandy, Leona Lewis, and more.

The show was developed by Evan "Kidd" Bogart, who has written for Rihanna and Beyonce. The winner of the comp will get recording deal and a U.S. tour.

It's premiere date is September 23, which is just around the time U.S. X Factor debuts as well.

Hmm, nothing like a little healthy competition. We definitely will be checking them both out!

    I think this is awful. It is bad enough to put kids in the spotlight, but to pit them against each other in a competition? Cruel. Kids should not be exposed to that kind of stress, and if they are talented, their talent will still be there after they graduation high school. I love Adam Lambert, but I wish he wasn't involved in this.

    Re: rosebud99 – I think I agree. Kids should be figuring out who they are in a loving, structured environment, while if musically inclined, maybe singing in school or church choirs, or playing in garage bands, or perfecting their chords in their bedroom. The adult world with its pressures should come much later, when they have the tools to deal with it and its heartless rejection or success.

    Nothing like rehashing the same old idea but giving it a different title. The winners usually disappear anyway so what's the point? American TV has become stale.

    Great, mentored by has beens!! Wasn't Avril who at one time pushed AI winner Kelly Clarkson aside at an awards show?? Like she was to big of a star to be on the same stage as Kelly. Now look at Avril. Oh have the tables turned. Looks good on you loser. Go back to Napanee.

    I guess no one read the full article on the show. No one gets "voted off" or anything they all stay there for the whole season, there is just one "valedictorian" in the end. Pretty sure even the most fragile of kid egos can handle a show where there is no voting or losers.

    Re: melllll – You're right, but it still focuses on fame and celebrity by virtue of being a show. They're so young they'll need parental permission. What if their older selves regret being shoved into the public eye later? There's no end of stage parents, just saying. If they choose entertainment when they're of age, that's a different thing. There's an association dedicated to child stars who have experienced early fame and it turned out badly.

    These 'MAJORS' , could use major people in the music industry to get THEIR MUSIC career going AGAIN, and for one, two I will not mention, going for the FIRST TIME MARIO! Please, it was disgusting that AI lowered their age requirements…NOW THIS PIECE OF CRAP…. How many people have become sucessful from american idol? REALLY SUCCESSFUL meaning HOUSEHOLD NAMES???? 2, 3? Kellie Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Daughtry? EVERY IDOL CONTESTANT's follow up album goes down in sales, and the next, the sales are lower, the next are lower, etc. etc. Idol does NOTHING to keep reinventing them -oh, wait, once every 2 years, they 'appear'.. and i bet this show WILL BE JUST AS GOOD!!

    I watched that show already - it was called "The Voice". And I totally agree with meister.

    Re: melllll – Glad to hear there is no-one voted off. But there is still the issue of what happens to a child's mental development when they are exposed to the public eye and judged. Looking at adults who were child stars, it is pretty clear that most of them end up pretty messed up.



  12. 12

    OMGLOL Blah Blah Blah so much complaining! So many really talented kids out there today, it's nice to have a platform besides youtube where people can get to see them. No one gets voted off and they get the experience of a lifetime. I'll watch!



  13. 13

    there's a show just like this but it is in spanish I bet they got the idea from them because that show is getting millions of viewers!!! it's a cute show but damn don't steal others ideas!!



  14. 14

    Wow children getting mentored by a bunch of has beens with lame music.

    No thanks.

    Re: HairPlugs for Hilton – I think you mean the WORLD'S tv has become stale. I've traveled to many different countries throughout my life, and it seems that a lot of them just take our shows and our movies aNd throw subtitles over them. OR they take one of our shitacular ideas and rehash it as their own (anyone up for some Ukranian Idol, or Geordie Shore?!?!). Don't get me wrong- other countries still make their own stuff. Especially in places of power, like Great Britain. And most everywhere makes at least some of their own movies. But all in all, it's still mainly the same. It just may have some crappy dubbed voice over it.

    Re: casablancas89 – Take a look at my last posting. Even though we sometimes take ideas from other countries (like that show "Who Do You Think You Are?"), it's mainly them taking ideas from us. But notice I didn't say "steal", because no matter who it is getting the sloppy seconds, i'm sure the original creators get a VERY nice compensation. :)

    comp? do you have to shorten every word?



  18. 18

    Has beens rejoice!!! They got a job.

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, GetCent.com

    I'll watch for Adam.

    Does anyone else see "flop" in this show's future? All the so-called MAJORS were poorly chosen. NONE of these MAJORS can draw a large audience! At least with The Voice, all the mentors are successful in their own genres which drew a vast variety of viewers. The shows' format is unique, the chemistry between the mentors is entertaining and the talent was outstanding! I couldn't bare to even watch 15 minutes of AI this year. Really, Jennifer Lopez ~ since when is she viewed as a major player in music? This new show doesn't stand a chance against the XFactor!

    Re: zumazuma1961 – Maybe. As long as they take care to keep it at at simply a good experience, maybe you're right. Don't know.
