Music network MuchMusic USA said Monday that it would partner with New
York-area consumer-electronics retailer The Wiz to audition for new television
'It is time we give everyone their 15 minutes of fame,' MuchMusic USA
president Marc Juris said in a press release.
The first audition will be held Thursday afternoon, April 18, at The Wiz on
Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The Wiz will host auditions at other stores on
Thursdays throughout the spring and summer, and the network will expand its tour
across the country later in the year.
Anyone who auditions at The Wiz will also receive a discount for compact
discs sold at the store.
