It took them long enough.
In a move that isn't surprising in the slightest, the creators of the überpopular American Idol have revealed that they are cooking up another music-based talent show, reports Reuters. However, instead of focusing solely on singers, Simon Fuller and his team will be on the lookout for bands.
Tentatively titled The Search for the Next Great American Band, the show will air on Fox and will follow the same formula as Idol. Auditions will be held across the country, and finalists will be whittled down by a panel of judges.
The competition is open to bands of all ages, genres, and styles, and the winner will walk away with a recording contract and, if the Idol fervor carries over, a wealth of water-cooler chatter.
No further details on the show, including when it will premiere, were mentioned.
