Diddy’s 'Making The Band' Reboot Officially a Go With MTV, Shuts Down Danity Kane’s Wishes

By Ryan Naumann

Diddy is officially rebooting his classic reality show “Making The Band” with MTV and has launched a global talent search.

The music mogul posted today that the iconic show was coming back, saying, “I’ve made my decision... #MakingTheBand is coming back!!! This will be a global talent search, upload your auditions now using #MTBcasting!”

The new season is scheduled to premiere in 2020, over a decade after the last “Making the Band” episode aired.


“Making The Band” was launched by the music mogul (who spun it off a previous version) in 2002. The first season followed him as he put together a hip-hop group that became known as Da Band.

He famously had contestants walk miles to get him cheesecake during the first season.


Da Band never really broke out and then Diddy decided to do another season looking for a female group. He had the help of Laurie Ann Gibson and Johnny Wright, who was responsible for having a hand in launching of The Backstreet Boys and 'NSYNC.

The season ended with the girl group Danity Kane being formed. The band consisted of Shannon Bex, Aubrey O’Day, Dawn Richard, Aundrea Fimbres, and D. Woods. O’Day famously beefed with Diddy publicly during the show and blamed him for the band's troubles.

The last season of “Making the Band” followed Diddy launch the boy band Day26 and solo singer Donnie Klang.

Diddy has been teasing the reboot for weeks and even caused Danity Kane member Aubrey O’Day to comment on one of his posts. She wrote, "you had making the band because of US! Dare you bring the TRUE stars back and show YOU CAN FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED.”

It would appear Diddy has no interest in O’Day’s plea given he is launching a global talent search for the reboot.
