E! Is making one, so VH1 might as well too! RIGHT?
The MTV owned network has just picked up 60-Minute Superstar, a new music competition reality series.
"A fast-paced music competition series, which plucks unsuspecting singers out of their everyday lives to give them a shot at stardom. The aspiring singers will be secretly nominated by loved ones, neighbors, friends and co-workers. In each episode, three leading music producers will sift through the submissions with each selecting one 'diamond in the rough' singer to transform."
And by "transform" they mean fly out to Hollywood, give them a make-over, vocal and dance lessons, and then throw them on stage for America to gawk at.
Every episode, three musicians will undergo this kidnapping / musical bootcamp. At the end of the show, the three contestants will perform — but only ONE will go on to compete in the next round.
The goal is to make it to the final stage where the transformed will have a sing-off for a grand prize (that has yet TBA).
The concept sounds a little cheesy, but this could be entertaining!
Honestly, we're just happy one of MTV's channels will actually have a show about music!
