Sean “Diddy” Combs is making the reboot of his popular MTV series Making the Band into a family affair.
The rapper and mogul has tapped his three sons — dubbed the “Combs Cartel” — to judge the revived show airing in 2020 along with creative director and celebrity choreographer LaurieAnn Gibson.
Diddy’s children all have careers spanning music, entertainment and fashion. “Making The Band” is based on the search for the world’s next music breakout stars.
The show will embark on a multi-city casting tour this month with open auditions being held in Atlanta from Feb. 28-29, Houston from March 7-8, then to Charlotte, N.C. on Mar. 13-14, and finally New York City on March 21-22. Diddy and all the judges will make appearances throughout the tour.
Fans will also have an opportunity to experience the show with vocal booths that will pop-up around each city on the tour ahead of the open casting auditions. The first booth will appear in Atlanta and will offer hopefuls a music video-style performance to approved audition songs. All submissions can be shared across social platforms and used to submit auditions online.
