This will be one to keep an eye on: Simon Fuller, Jamie King, gossip blogger Perez Hilton and someone with access to a clipart library have teamed up to launch Boy Band (they seem to have trademarked 'boy band' — incredible), in which males aged between 13 and 21 are auditioned for "the boy band for the next generation".
Simon Fuller, quoted on Perez's site: "I’m delighted to be working with Jamie and Perez. Boy bands have always been at the heart of pop culture with huge potential to excite a massive audience both here in the States and the rest of the world. With Jamie and Perez at the helm we have a real focus on what we are looking for. Together we will do everything to ensure that whoever is discovered becomes one of the most successful groups in recent years."
You've got until March 3 to upload your audition bits on www.BoyBandSearch.com. We actually can't wait to see what they come up with, particularly if Perez Hilton is involved creatively.
