Aim2Fame is the global online show looking for the next super star. A2F gives the contestants the opportunity of training with the best coaches in the music industry in our famous ACADEMY.
A2F is global because contestants from all over the world can compete between them.
A2F has a unique concept: is online +international +reality show +talent show.
Eight young singers are selected by the AIM2FAME™ judges from hundreds of applicants from all over the world, who have submitted their video performance through a custom online platform: judges look at their artistic and vocal qualities, international representation and their potential to become superstars.
COACHES AND THE PANEL OF JUDGES
The famous and renowned multidisciplinary coaches will also be professional experts with different and complementary specialities, to help guide the contestants through their experience. The reputed coaches will teach in the Fame Academy, with experience working with best super stars in the music industry. A unique opportunity to work with the best in the world.
The panel of judges will be announced soon, so stay tuned, and will be made up of three professionals from the music industry: from recognised singers, record company representatives to music producers. They have the most demanding role: they must use their votes to decide who has failed the challenges and will be subsequently nominated or even…eliminated.
At each stage, the participants will be faced with a different challenge which can mean nomination or elimination.
Be ready for such things as…interpreting well-known songs, changing your musical style, executing a spectacular choreography, making a popular song your own and performing before the public.
The Fame Academy –located in a secret spot in Madrid (Spain) – will be the professional training ground of the next world super star!
The finale of AIM2FAME™ 2017 will take place live at an outstanding site in front of a keen audience.
