The platform is really based on artist and brand development with the goal of giving the best of the best indie artists and bands a platform to be seen and heard.
You have built a great platform for independent artist in difficult to reach markets.

The ultimate winner of each city then comes to NYC for the grand finale showcase. We are also airing the show on the internet as a web series. Below are the links to check out the news courage and a link to the website.
As we come into the Salt Lake City market there will be 4 rounds of showcases and we will be filming the show as a web series. The filming will include auditions, show performances, the BTS of the showcases, artists boot camp, as well as the personal profile of each participating artists/band (semi-finalist). The web series will initially be shown weekly (12 minute webisodes) via the Who’s Got Talent website but as we build the numbers we will look to partner with a bigger platform. The whole Who’s Got Talent process from the auditions to the Finale will take 12 weeks.

Overall there will be 3 open auditions and 4 rounds of showcase performances with the forth round being the finale. As part of the competition, we will also be doing a 3 week artist development/branding boot camp (Fitness, Artist development, Image development, Branding/Social media) for the semi-finalists.

The judging is based on the strength of the songs and stage performance, audience participation and social media. Our goal is to use the Who’s Got Talent showcases and web series to build a strong grassroots following and buzz for the WGT most talented artists/bands.

We are still building our sponsorships partners for Salt Lake City. For each market we are also partnering with radio as well. The cities we are going to are as followed; Salt Lake City, Utah, Miami, Brooklyn, Boston, and Seattle. As we build our resources we will expand the cities.

We would like to start the audition process the 2nd or 3rd week of September. There is some flexibility to when we start the first showcase (either September 21st or 28th). a lot depends on who are the sponsorship and promotional partners are.

History of Who’s Got Talent:

M2M Studios created the concept of Who’s Got Talent as a nationwide grassroots showcase competition to give indie artists/bands a platform to be seen and heard. WGT’s first stop was Houston TX, presented by M2M Studios and Ideas Unlimited and sponsored by Vitaminwater, JMG, Split Endz, Push Boot Camp, Fox Hollow, and House of Dereon. There were 4 rounds of showcase competition, which also includes a four week Artist and Brand Development boot-camp. The two finalists were 18 year old Pop/R&B singer/songwriter Chidima Ubah and country music artist Justin Van Sant. The ultimate winner was selected via online voting. And the WINNER was Chidima, who recently represented Houston at the July 16th, 2013 NYC showcase finale. The WGT platform is based on artist and brand development with the goal of giving the best of the best indie artists and bands a platform to be seen and heard.
