Johnny Wright visits Joe Jonas in studio while working on his debut solo album with Rob Knox and James Fauntleroy and shows off some of the talent from ”On The Spot.”
What do you get when you mix an online singing competition with a famed music manager? Johnny Wright’s Quest for the Next Supergroup, On the Spot, is an Internet contest that is on the hunt to discover the next supergroup.
Wright and his team of experts, including some of today’s most successful artists, will narrow down the auditions to just 20 participants. Then, from his high-tech headquarters, Wright will put the top 20 finalists to the test, utilizing the power of the Internet to orchestrate a series of challenges of each contestant’s artistic prowess, business savvy, and passion.
The eight most impressive performers will be flown to LA to participate in the manager’s famous Boot Camp, an intense workshop of rehearsals, dance choreography, vocal lessons, and media training. Even eliminated participants who are active viewers may have the chance to impress Wright and reenter the competition!
On the Spot will capture every emotional turn throughout the audition process, challenges, and Boot Camp through weekly episodes, video journals, bonus content, and live chats with finalists. Viewers will virtually sit beside the man who brought The Backstreet Boys and many other music stars to prominence, and help him identify, craft, and mold the next great supergroup.
The video below contains a number of the online auditions and most are pretty good.
Let us know what you think of the concept as well as the show.
The reality series debuts Friday, February 4th, 2:00 p.m. ET at http://onthespot.cambio.com/. In that initial episode, Wright enlists the advice of Joe Jonas when reviewing first auditions.

Quadruple-threat Joe Jonas will be guesting in Hot in Cleveland, playing Valerie Bertinelli‘s son, where the studio publicist teases (that) “Melanie invades his (Jonas‘) privacy and learns a little too much about him.’ You can learn a whole lot about him on that episode this coming Wednesday on TV Land.
Joe Jonas is (for those like me who’ve been living on Mars) the co-lead singer with (and co-founder of) the Jonas Brothers pop-rock band, and has accomplished all that’s possible for a twenty-year old without having been born into royalty. A rock star performer, number-one chart album seller, star of his own Disney Channel original series (Jonas), and now making press release news as a ‘special guest star’ on other television shows. In May, Jonas announced that he would be releasing a solo album (in his spare time).

The new season of Jonas L.A. begins on the Disney Channel June 20th, and The Jonas Brothers are also on tour once again (with Demi Lovato) starting next month.
With all this time together, one would assume that they would get on each other’s nerves. However, during a recent interview, the three brothers explain why they always seem to be in sync on and off the stage.
