An epic 24-hours of music is upon us. Starting at 8PM ET tonight, 24 groups will begin their journey in a competition to be the last band standing in VH1′s Make a Band Famous event, and we invite YOU to come along for the ride.
Hosted by The All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter, this first-ever music competition will allow these bands a shot at one ultimate prize: signing with Republic Records. But it won’t be easy. In these 24-hours, there will be various challenges with a star-studded panel judging every step of the way. The panel includes international pop star Natasha Bedingfield and musical director to icons like Justin Timberlake and Pharrell, Adam Blackstone, YouTube music star Kurt Hugo Schneider, and Indie artist/composer Robert Schwartzman. Along with the panel, there will be celebrity mentors to give the bands a helping hand throughout the competition, including Travie McCoy, Chris Daughtry, and Bonnie McKee.
Even more big name celebrities like Ed Sheeran, Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, Benji and Joel Madden, and Colbie Caillat will get in on the action. What to know more about the bands? Learn the stories and backgrounds of the first 12 and second 12 finalists as you watch to help you decide on your favorite.
