The Next Big Thing is a new music competition that follows 12 contestants in a unique and immersive artist development bootcamp. Three judges from the music industry will mentor the aspiring artists; putting them through their paces and deciding who survives to the next round. The contestants compete in a range of challenges from fitness to photoshoots; music videos to live performances. The two finalists will perform in front of actual record label representatives; who will decide who they want to sign. The winner gets an exclusive performance opportunity, but any of the final artists could win a deal and become The Next Big Thing.
