Diddy is brining back “Making The Band”, but with the corona virus things are getting in the way of the auditions. Diddy tells TMZ … “We want to make sure everyone is safe during these times, so we had to make the decision to cancel the in person casting events.” He adds … “But at the same time, I want to provide opportunity to everyone to audition from their homes. So I’ve put together a team of A&Rs that will be checking #MTBcasting on all social platforms 24/7 to find gems. Everyone be safe!”
The “Making the Band” reboot is gonna be delayed in its search for new talent because upcoming auditions have been called off due to coronavirus. Sources close to production tell TMZ … the final 2 open casting calls — Friday in Charlotte and March 21 in NYC — have been canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Those would have been the last in-person auditions.
Even more of a bummer — DaBaby was set to help out at the Charlotte casting call … and Diddy was going to be at the NYC auditions at MTV Studios. They will be rescheduled until further notice.
