Diddy announces the return of ‘Making the Band’ on MTV in 2020

 – After getting the opinions of Seth Rogen, Wale and others, Sean “Diddy” Combs has decided to bring back his music competition reality TV series, “Making the Band.”

The Wrap reported that the mogul announced the news on Twitter and other social media.

“MTV and I are back together again!!” Diddy said in a statement. “‘Making the Band’ is coming back bigger, bolder and more cutting edge. MTB on MTV was the pioneer of reality TV. We’re going to bring that supernatural energy back to the format and bring the world its next global superstars.”

Diddy said in his video post that the search will be global.

“We’re doing this social by design. It’s a different time than when ‘Making the Band’ was on before. There’s way better things than cheesecake now so it’s gonna get even crazier, but it’s not just about America and America’s music. It’s about everybody’s voice so I’m doing a global talent search.”

Those wanting to audition can upload their auditions using #MTBCasting, according to a news release.

The original iteration of “Making the Band” was created by Lou Pearlman, who was behind Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, and formed O-Town on the show in 2000, Variety reported. Pearlman was convicted of running a Ponzi scheme. He died in prison in 2016.

The Diddy version of “Making the Band” is arguably the most successful one. The mogul took over the show in 2002 and chronicled the careers of Da Band, Danity Kane, Day26 and Donnie Klang.
