‘Make a Band Famous’ Celebrity Judges and Mentors Announced

Make a Band Famous Mentors and Celebrity Judges

Natasha Bedingfield, Adam Blackstone, Kurt Hugo Schneider, and Robert Schwartzman have been confirmed as celebrity judges on VH1’s Make a Band Famous. The live-stream competition will be hosted by The All-American Rejects’ Tyson Ritter and will take place over a 24 hour period beginning today at 8pm ET/5pm PT at MakeABandFamous.VH1.com.

The mentors will be Gym Class Heroes’ Travie McCoy, Chris Daughtry, and singer/songwriter Bonnie McKee.

Details on the Competition:

On May 1, VH1 and Republic Records invited unsigned music acts to upload a 15-second clip of one of their original, unpublished songs to Instagram with the hashtag #MABF. Fans then had the chance to cast their votes via social media and push their favorite acts closer to Brooklyn and after an overwhelming number of submissions, the final field has been narrowed down to 24 bands, whose performance submissions can be viewed at MakeABandFamous.VH1.com. The last band standing will play a live showcase at Brooklyn’s Northside Festival, receive the support of an extended multi-platform “VH1 You Oughta Know” program and sign with Republic Records.

Make a Band Famous also offers a unique viewing experience to its audience, where viewers will be exposed to an uncensored, uncut livestream from multiple cameras that will stream simultaneously. The viewer will have access to performances, interviews, the green room, the judges’ opinions and the groups’ anxiety as they compete for their big break. In addition to the livestream, “Make A Band Famous” will be heavily pumped out throughout the day on VH1’s television lineup and its social platforms.
