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.

The pop recording group, Savvy is getting in on the Christmas bandwagon with the new holiday single Christmas Time Again in addition to Dance with Me Now.
These two singles are the first to be released by the pop group on iTunes Wednesday, 11/24/10. Savvy got a lot of attention after they formed a strategic alliance with The Jonas Group (i.e. Jonas Brothers company). They’ve clearly taken the opportunity and made a name for themselves.
The iTunes premiere comes just weeks after HBOLatin America premiered the tween series, The Wannabes Starring Savvy on HBO Family. The 26-episode season follows six high school students and the outrageous adventures they encounter while living out their musical dream of topping the pop charts.
Check out the video below to see what all the fuss is about.
Pictured: Andrew Bowen Stern, Kevin Jonas, Gabrielle LeMaire, Shaylen Carroll, Joe Jonas, Drew Reinartz, Mariah Parks, Nick Jonas and Alan Shaw.
The Jonas Brothers’ company The Jonas Group already had a strategic partnership with teen music group, Savvy. Savvy are stars of the TV series The Wannabes Starring Savvy. The Jonas Group began guiding the careers of Savvy members Shaylen Carroll, Gabrielle LeMaire, Mariah Parks, Drew Reinartz, Alan Shaw and Andrew Bowen Stern and they have been doing well.
Over the weekend the two groups performed alongside each other for the Arthur Ashe Kids Day 2010.
Savvy has been together since 2004 and have already performed over 400 live concerts in the U.S.
The Jonas Brothers continue their quest for world domination as music moguls. Goodness certainly has its rewards.

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.
