This is not a drill. Sean “Diddy” Combs’ hit MTV show, Making the Band, is making a comeback.
The music mogul shared the exciting news on Twitter. “I’ve made my decision… #MakingTheBand is coming back!!! This will be a global talent search, upload your auditions now using #MTBcasting!!” he wrote.
In the video, Diddy gives thanks to Wale and Seth Rogen for supporting the reboot of his hit show. Diddy also explains that at this point in his life, he wants to focus on projects that make him happy and are inspiring.
“You can’t recreate happiness, no sleeping in the trophy room,” he states. “You have to be ready to do new things and change the game. What is what I really love to do, man? What would really inspire me right now? And it’s bringing Making the Band back. Making the Band 2020, I really want to do this. I really think that I would have a good time and I know that I’m going to build the biggest band in the world.”
Last week, we reported that The Four judge was considering bringing back his MTV show, which premiered on television from 2002 to 2009. He was on the fence about bringing back the reality show but feels as if it’s his calling in life.
“Something so great, you don’t want to mess with it, you just want to leave it alone,” he explained. “Don’t get it twisted, that’s one of the most fun experiences of my life with Making The Band…I feel that’s my calling in the culture, taking young next talent to the next level.”
