Brandy, Avril Lavigne, Leona Lewis & More Go Major

Just what the world needs, another singing competition. Unfortunately, they all can’t find the next Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. Instead, we’ll end up with winners who we’ll probably never ever see again. Remember “insert name“? That being said, there is usually one thing that’s guaranteed. The established singers involved with the project more often than not get a career boost from the exposure. “American Idol” certainly put Jennifer Lopez back on the music charts. Same thing goes for Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera from “The Voice”. How addicting is their collabo “Moves Like Jagger“?

I’m sure, the hope of selling more records appealed to Brandy, Avril Lavigne and Leona Lewis and that’s why they’re participating on “Majors and Minors”. Let’s face it, these ladies haven’t seen a huge hit for years. Hopefully, their exposure on this new talent competition will give their respective careers a bit of a boost.

Majors and Minors” is a new show looking for the next superstar. It boasts that it’s not about the drama and just nurturing the talent which ranges from 8-16 year olds- they’re the “minors“. The established stars, like the trio aforementioned, are the “majors“. There will be no one voted each week, but instead a valedictorian will be determined after the 15 week competition.

Joining Brandy, Lavigne and Leona are Jordin Sparks, Sean Kingston, Mike Posner, Ryan Tedder, Adam Lambert, Colbie Caillat and Claude Kelly. Expect more names to be announced as the show reaches its September 23rd premiere date on The Hub, formerly known as Discovery Kids. “Majors and Minors” is the brainchild of songwriter Evan Bogart who has worked with Rihanna and Beyonce on “SOS” and “Halo” respectively. Check out the official description of the show. ”

“Majors & Minors,” a groundbreaking new music-based 15-episode reality series premiering on The Hub network this fall will provide talented young performers the chance of a lifetime – to be taught by the best of the best in the music business, giving them the direction and tools they?ll need to embark on their own journeys toward achieving their dreams.

And the coolest part? No one ever gets voted off! This is not that type of show! Everyone who gets cast will leave better-mentored for their own road that lies ahead.

Still, one lucky winner will walk away with a recording deal with Sony’s RCA/JIVE Label Group, a music publishing deal, and the chance to become a featured star in a cross-country tour with the entire cast.
