Johnny Wright, the manager behind the Backstreet Boys, ';NSync and the Jonas Brothers is looking online for his next pop act with a new web series, "On the Spot: Johnny Wright's Quest for the Next Pop Supergroup."
"Johnny has always been such a great friend, mentor and manager, not only to us but so many other amazing artists," the Jonas Brothers told People. "He has such a long history of finding great talent so we are excited to watch him during On the Spot, give our opinions where we can and see what he's able to pull together."
Johnny told Popeater, "No one has ever been able to reach all the way around the world at once to find the best talent, and simultaneously hear feedback from the fans. I can't wait to get started."
On Wednesday starting at 6pm PST, Wright will begin accepting video auditions worldwide from aspiring musicians, ages 18 to 30 (16-30 for legal US residents). The field will gradually be widowed down through challenges and ending with a boot camp in Los Angeles.
The show will be broken up in to three phases:
-Global Video Auditions: December 8 – February 25*In the audition phase (December 8-January 28), Johnny accepts video auditions from aspiring musicians from around the world. After January 28, Johnny will start to narrow the field in the first few episodes of the web series.
-Challenge Round: February 25 – April 29*Johnny puts the top 20 participants through a series of challenges where he and surprise guests will test their artistic prowess, drive, business savvy and passion. This phase of programming will determine the finalists.
-FINALS: April 29 – June 3*The finalists will be flown to Los Angeles to be put through Johnny's "Boot Camp," an intensive workshop of rehearsals, dance choreography, vocal lessons, and media training, this is where the final band will be crafted and announced
Wright says he wants to see sincere passion come through in the auditions.
"When I see something that I like, my leg starts to shake back and forth," says Wright, laughing. "That's my tick. When that happens, I know I'm interested in something."
