Filled under:

The judges and host will be filming throughout the summer in the search for the UK’s best new music act – any age, any song, any style. With such wide-ranging musical backgrounds, the panel are perfectly placed as judges for Must Be The Music, which is open to any type of musical talent, be they a gospel choir, an indie rock band, a rapper or a soprano singer.

The series, open to all musicians and singers no matter what type of music they play, is set to air in early August 2010 on Sky 1 HD and its unique new format hands back control to the artists themselves, empowered by creative support, promotional advice and a cash fund of £100,000 to kick start their career. The final will be held live at one of the UK’s biggest and most famous music venues, where the finalists will perform on the same stage as the show’s prestigious judges.

We went today and all I can say is that they treat you really well, there were only about eight people being auditioned at the same time and they were all interviewed it was well organised, we were all even given cooled bottles of water, didn't have to buy them. All the crew were really nice. When my daughter was auditioned and she didn't get through there was a loud gasp from the audience I think they thought she should go through. Jamie and Dizzy both commented on her lovely voice and the power she had, Sharleen thought she should have gone for something a bit more poppy, although they say it can be any sort of music including classical.

The Essex band are one of six acts vying to win the £100,000 prize, but lead singer Alex Greaves said the money was secondary to the occasion."Obviously a hundred grand would be nice but to play at Wembley is a great thing for us," he told BBC Essex.Whether we win the hundred grand or not, I'm not bothered. I can say now that I've played Wembley Arena."Alex said the venue was easily the biggest they had ever played, but rather than feeling nervous he was excited by the opportunity.I'm definitely more excited. I'm not a nervous person, but you never know - I've never done Wembley before. But we're all really eager to get down there." "It's probably the biggest venue a lot of bands have played. It's a big step up from what we normally do,"

Duncan Gray, Head of Entertainment, Sky1 HD and Sky1, 2 and 3, commented: "Customer interaction with Sky 1 HD is really important to us, whether they are in the UK or Republic of Ireland. I'm really pleased that Must Be The Music is not only the first show to offer immediate song downloads for all the semi finalists' performances, but also all our customers, including those in the Republic of Ireland, will now get a chance to vote for their favourite act, and for only 5 pence/ 7 cents per phone call. This is a great step forward in offering interactive services that make the editorial more accessible for the viewer."
