Who wants to make it

What is who wants to make it?

'Who Wants To Make It' is the world's largest open audition platform, where every artist gets a fair chance to submit music, audition, or perform at major events.

How will artists perform virtually?

Virtual performers will pre-record their performance and upload it to YouTube. The YouTube performance will be re-broadcasted to our network of affiliates in order to stream it to the live audience. 

Virtual performance rules

The video must be no longer than 3-5 minutes long (length of 1 song). Profanity is acceptable, but no nudity or content that YouTube would flag. It does not have to be a professional setting; it can be in a living room. We are not judging artists based on their setting. We want everyone to have a fair opportunity. iPhones are recommended for best quality, however any phone, tablet or camera will work. Logos and promotional/non-offensive text is acceptable
