P. Diddy will host and judge hip-hop edition of Making the Band.
MTV unveiled details about the series that will star Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, and it’s not an Osbournes-style rip-off as was rumored. Instead, he’ll host the new season of Making the Band, which will follow the “formation of a hip-hop group through its entire process, from auditions to obtaining a record deal,” Reuters reports. Combs “will evaluate eight contestants who will live together and be judged based on writing, dancing and performing skills,” according to Newsday. Casting begins Monday with an open call in Detroit; the show will debut Oct. 12. Although it will technically be the fourth season of the show, MTV is apparently referring to the new series right now as Making the Band 2.
