Pharrell’s “Happy” Played On Toy Instruments? That’s How The Make A Band Famous Celeb Judges Get Down!

As you may have heard, bands have been competing since 8 last night for a once in a lifetime recording contract from Republic Records in the Make a Band Famous contest, hosted by The All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter. Judging the competition are international pop star Natasha Bedingfield, famed musical director to the stars Adam Blackstone, YouTube music star Kurt Hugo Schneider, and indie artist / composer Robert Schwartzman. One of the coolest moments so far was the “Box Of Beats Challenge” where the bands were asked to cover a hit song from the past using only toy instruments. Not to be outdone, the celebrity judges and guest Bonnie McKee decided to work up their own toy instrument cover of one of the biggest hits of the season, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, and you won’t believe how cool it came out.

The competition is still going strong and your vote matters so be a part of music history and head to to watch the live stream until tonight’s finale and continue to use #MABF and #(BandName) to see your favorite artist rise to the top!
