    Default Fox Reveals American Band Camp

    Meet the Simon, Randy, Paula and Ryan of The Next Great American Band.

    Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik, percussionist Sheila E. and Australian TV personality Ian "Dicko" Dickson (yes, really) make up the judge's panel for the new reality venture, while New Zealand Idol host Dominic Bowden serves as the host, Fox announced Monday.

    Rzeznik got his start in the music business two decades ago and led the Goo Goo Dolls to commercial success in the '90s, selling 10 million albums and notching more than a dozen top 10 hits.

    Sheila E. is perhaps best known for being the progeny of Prince, who took the legendary drummer under his wing in the '80s. She has also performed with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, as well as Herbie Hancock, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross, in addition to touring with her own band, C.O.E.D. (Chronicles of Every Diva).

    Dickson began his career at Creation Records, where he worked with acts including Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and Oasis. He later moved to Sony, where he represented LL Cool J and Midnight Oil.

    Created by the producers of American Idol, American Band aims to incorporate many features of the hit talent show on the search to discover the next big act.

    After the nationwide auditions, Rzeznik, Sheila E. and Dicko will be responsible for narrowing the hopefuls down to 10 semifinalist bands, who will perform each week before a live studio audience.

    The judges will have the chance to offer their critiques after each performance, but, as with Idol, viewer voting will ultimately determine which acts stay and which act goes each week.

    The bands will be forced to demonstrate a range of ability, as some weeks they will perform covers of songs by established artists and other weeks will be challenged to show off original tunes.

    The battle of the bands will continue until only one act remains, with the winning group landing a record contract with 19 Recordings.

    American Band premieres Oct. 19 on Fox and will air Fridays at 8 p.m.

    The show is produced by 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia North America; Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe, Ken Warwick and Cecile Frot-Coutaz will executive produce.

    I think I'll "slide" past this show when channel surfing. I can't imagine this show being any place other than a "long way down" on the ratings chart.

    and i thought this thread was going to be related in some way to the proper use of a flute...

    do the bands have to perform crappy songs like in idol, or are they allowed outside the realm of adult contemporary music?
