Sky1 is looking for the next Eminem, Lily Allen, Kings of Leon, Take That or Vanessa Mae. From Plan B to The Beatles, Kanye West to Keith Urban, Miles Davis to Michael Buble, AC/DC to Arctic Monkeys, Jamie Cullum to Katherine Jenkins. Whether you’re an eight-year-old beat-boxer, a huge gospel choir, a rock group or grime mc looking for your big break, Must Be The Music is the place to be.

Must Be The Music is a competition with a unique edge – not only will it include a huge spectrum of musical talent but also hand back control to the artists themselves. The winner will not be tied down to a record deal, but will be empowered by creative support, promotional advice and a cash fund of £100,000 to kick start their career. Plus, the grand final will be a live performance from the 10,000 capacity Wembley Arena!

Set to air in Summer 2010, Must Be The Music is open to all musicians, no matter what type of music they play – be they solo artists, groups, vocalists or instrumentalists. The judges will travel the length and breadth of the country in the hunt for the best talent Britain has to offer.

Any age, any style – this show is about a passion for music and a desire to perform – whether you’re a bedroom rapper, a classical musician or a Bhangra group. Open auditions will be held all over the UK throughout May with full dates to be announced on
