Diddy and the cast of MTV’s “Making The Band 4″ take over Times Square
for a live event Sunday night, August 26th beginning at 10PM ET where
the band will finally be unveiled. Fresh on the heels of creating the
successful all girl group ‘Danity Kane,’ whose Platinum album debuted
at number one selling more than 230,000 + copies in its first week.
The group toured with Christina Aguilera and The Pussycat Dolls and
will be releasing a new album on Bad Boy Records in 2008.
This season we will see if Diddy can apply his magic touch to create the ultimate all-male band. From MTV’s Time’s Square studio, fans will welcome the 10 finalist from one of the most exciting seasons of the hit reality series Making The Band. In the season finale Diddy made a shocking announcement deciding not to pick the band but instead solicited the help of the MTV viewers. At the live event on August 26th Diddy will reveal which deserving cast members will be chosen for the few coveted spots in the band. Which of the ten finalist–Donnie, Michael, Jeremy, Brian C, Robert, Qwanell, Willie, Brian A, DeAngelo and Dyshon will remain standing?
Leading up to the big event fans have been voting for their favorite band member on makingtheband.mtv.com where there have been 400,000 online votes to date. Voting will continue until 10pm August 26th. Also, prior to the long awaited event fans can submit questions to Diddy and the cast via MTV.com that will be presented and answered during the live show.
This eagerly anticipated event will be filled with many surprises and promises to be a memorable experience for fans. This season viewers saw many unexpected twists–from Diddy’s long time show choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson being fired, to Diddy surprising the cast mid season with new candidates, to the infamous physical challenges that Diddy presents to the guys.
Sean “Diddy” Combs, Ted Iredell and Perry Dance will serve as executive producers. Jacquelyn French is the MTV executive overseeing ‘The Making The Band’ franchise. Francesca Spero is Producer for Bad Boy Entertainment.
