Jazzy T Has Big Casting News from MTV for you!

Jazzy TOpportunity Knocks Again! And this time it’s for YOU!

Last year I answered a casting call for a new TV show on TBS called “America’s Next Weatherman”. I sent the casting director my demo reel. She called me back an hour later! From there I went through a couple more rounds of the selection process which included a video interview via Skype and finally a live audition in Hollywood, CA! I, along with 11 other contestants eventually became the cast of America’s Next Weatherman Season One and the whole world saw your girl Jazzy T compete for $100,000 on national television.

Now it’s YOUR TIME TO SHINE. Venertainment, the same company that cast me last year, is now looking for rappers and singers to be on a new hip hop show on MTV! They want big personalities with raw talent and the drive to do whatever it takes to make it big in the music industry. The producers of this new show also produced the hit TV show “The Voice”.  So if selected to be on the show, you will have an opportunity to perform for a panel of music moguls and record label executives!

You must be at least 18 years old to apply and be available to travel for filming Fall 2016!

If you are solo, part of a group or duo and are ready to represent on MTV click here to apply. https://venertainment.com/hip-hop/

Hurry, deadline to submit is Aug 19th. If they like what you upload, they will call you like they called me! And when they do, tell them Jazzy T told you about this casting call.

Good Luck!
