If you’ve ever said to yourself “I Want My Music on MTV” – well here’s your chance!
Today, MTV and Garnier Fructis unveiled a new program that will give emerging artists the chance to have one of their songs featured in a primetime MTV show this summer. The “I Want My Music on MTV” contest, beginning today, will come to life on every MTV screen, including MTV.com, Virtual MTV and the ultimate pay-off coming on-air on MTV.
To enter the contest, aspiring artists can go to IWantMyMusic.mtv.com (www.iwantmymusic.mtv.com) to create a profile, and upload music for fans to vote on and rate. Submissions must be received by 11:59:59 PM (ET) on April 27th. The top 20 finalists of “I Want My Music on MTV” will be announced on April 28th. The top six vote-getters will be revealed on May 5th and presented to MTV’s music executives for possible inclusion in one of MTV’s smash shows, as well as a commercial pod takeover during the broadcast.
In addition, Virtual MTV opened its doors today to a brand new Garnier Fructis sponsored “Rock Your Style Lounge.” The lounge will become the ultimate destination in Virtual MTV for fans to mingle with the finalists and watch their music videos. Beginning April 10th, Garnier Fructis will offer exclusive limited-edition rock-star hair styles to fans in-world. To get in on the action, visit www.vmtv.com.
