The Final Girls of P Diddy Music Show
The girls re-entered the building and got ready to dance, sing, and laugh their way through a photo shoot. Diddy then gave them a series of tasks, including buying cheesecake.
The guys re-entered the building to meet with Ankah and are put into two groups. They then meet with Diddy to get the cut.
What is the show about?
In this episode the girls work on their vocals and meet with record producer Scott Storch. Dawn is not feeling her voice and has a hard time singing the high notes, but with encouragement from the others and Pooh Bear she sounds better by the end of the episode.
After three months the girls return to the studio and do more dance training, a photo shoot, and a radio interview. Diddy is impressed with the progress that the girls have made and chooses them to form a new group. He keeps Babs and Ness because he believes they are hip hop’s next Bonnie and Clyde. He also keeps Aundrea, who worries that she is not ready for the music business. However, he sends Carlos home.
Who are the judges?
The judges of the show include Diddy, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor, and record label executive Charlie Walk. The six-episode event series skips the traditional audition rounds and premieres Jan. 4 on Fox. The last singer standing earns the guidance and support of the judges in their quest to become a star.
The series got off to a bumpy start when music executive Charlie Walk was fired prior to the season one finale due to sexual misconduct allegations. However, Fox decided to stick with the original judging panel for season two.
According to TMZ, Fox is planning to fill out the remaining spots on the judging panel with a major artist and another executive within the music industry. The site also reports that a former Sony and Republic Records president could be joining the panel.
Who are the contestants?
In addition to Diddy, music producer DJ Khaled, singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor and record label executive Charlie Walk serve as judges on the show. The panel offers the contestants guidance in their pursuit of stardom.
The series skips the traditional audition rounds and begins with four finalists who must defend their spots week after week against challengers out to dethrone them. The last singer standing will win a once-in-a-lifetime chance to bring their musical career to the next level with the help of the show’s panel of industry heavyweights.
Contestant Jordan Battiste, a member of the band The Kings, says the experience has been amazing so far. However, it’s come with its share of stressors, including long photo shoots and invasive paparazzi. Ultimately, the decision to participate on the show came down to one thing for Battiste: his dream of making it as a solo artist.
What is the format of the show?
The girls go into the studio to record their songs. Dawn isn’t good at first but with help from Pooh Bear and the other girls, she manages to sound better. Aubrey is upset because her part of one of the songs was cut.
Diddy then asks the girls to perform individually vocally. Carlos and Julius don’t do well. Diddy keeps both of them in the show and tells them to practice more.
The guys meet with Ankah to rehearse their songs for the live performance. They perform and the audience votes for their favorite group. Robert, Dyshon, Willie, Qwanell, and Donnie all make it in the band. Jeremic and Devin are eliminated. The remaining contestants are Aundrea, Aubrey, and Dawn. The girls are now known as Da Band.
Will the show be cancelled?
After a long season of dancing, singing and laughs the four remaining members are back for a second round. And they are ready to do what it takes to be crowned the winners.
Diddy is back to pick up the guys where season one left off, and he doesn’t make it easy on them. They are challenged with a series of tasks including walking from Manhattan to Brooklyn to buy cheesecake. They also face tough dance performances and a photo shoot.
The guys get off to a rough start when Robert loses rehearsal time after spending an hour mending his relationship over the phone. Then Julius gets injured during his performance. But they pull through and all are in the final 10. Ankh Ra then splits the group into two.
