MTV is ready to make another superstar family!

Do you make music with your siblings? Randy Jackson, co-creator of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, is teaming with MTV in a search for sibling superstars! Are you, or do you know someone who’s part of, an unsigned sibling duo or group who could be the next Jackson Five, Oasis, Jonas Brothers, Kings of Leon, Hanson, Dixie Chicks, or The National?

MTV and Randy Jackson are looking for musical acts with at least two sibling members, of any genre or performance style, whose members appear to be between the ages of 16 to 24, and who have the star power to light up the stage and the screen. If this sounds like you or someone you know, please contact them at [email protected].

If applying for yourself, submit the following information:

-the geographical locations, names, and relationships (if not only/all siblings in your group) of each group member (e.g. “cousin,” “met in church,” “friend from high school”).

-a brief (two-three paragraph) summary of your group or band’s “story”- how you started performing together, what your goals and dreams are, the biggest obstacles you’ve faced, and where you see yourselves going as a group.

-some photographs: ideally one group shot, as well as good closeups of each group member.

-a link to one or more video(s) or downloadable MP3(s) that clearly demonstrate(s) your performance style and talents.

-phone numbers where you can be easily reached. If you are “nominating” a group, please submit: -the name and geographical location of the group.

-a brief summary of why you think they’re the next big thing.

-a link to some of their music/ performances.

-a way to contact them.

ALL INITIAL APPLICATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY JUNE 25

Good Luck!
