When will I, will I be Famous?

Does your best mate think that they’re the next Madonna or Robbie? Are you the next big thing? Do you stand in front of the mirror for hours on end singing Britney Spears into your hairbrush? Have you watched X-Factor, Pop Idol, and Fame Academy and thought just who exactly do these talentless wannabes think they are?

Well, now’s your chance to prove what you’ve got. Talentworks, Manchester’s all singing, all dancing search for the best undiscovered act comes to The Printworks over 6 Saturdays in July and August. A selection of singers are needed to wow a panel of musical experts by performing live in the Pump Yard. The good, the bad, and the ones you can only bear to watch through squinted eyes will be whittled down to the lucky few who will perform in the all important grand final.

The champion of Talentworks 2005 will win the chance to make their own music video, professionally filmed and edited, a photo session and portfolio with top photographer Matthew Seed, as well as the opportunity to perform at Manchester’s Hard Rock Café, the ultimate live venue.

Talentworks is already experienced at uncovering stars from the array of potential North West talent. Previous winner, Katie Forrester from Rochdale, was signed to the BMG record label as a direct result of the exposure she received during the Talentworks competition. This is your opportunity to be in the right place at the right time.

And, for those of you who are thinking about entering but are fearful of a Simon Cowell-style put down in front of the whole of Manchester just remember The Happy Mondays were discovered after performing in Mike Pickering’s Battle of the Bands at the Hacienda and were signed to Factory Records even though they came last!
