I thought this was a rather intriguing story to hit my mailbox this morning…perhaps even one of my Muusers could enter?
Simon Fuller–the media mogul behind the Spice Girls, American Idol, S Club 7, Cathy Dennis, Mini Viva and more–is teaming up with Universal Records and MySpace to start up a talent search for the next big boy band.
The project, called The Boys Are Back in Town, is now live and looking for talent between the ages of 16 and 21 to enter and become “the next global music sensation.” According to the website, winners will be flown out to London to take part in a live audition in November.
Normally I’d scoff at this, but it is Simon Fuller we’re talking about. Is this the beginning of a new mega-band? I don’t know, but it better damn well involve Xenomania.
