For reasons other than music, we are and will always be a big fan of girl groups. Spice Girls, Pussycat Dolls, even our very own Eurasia or Kitty Girls or Mocha, there is something very, entertaining about them.
Unfortunately, times have changed, and the chances of these ladies getting on stage one more time for our sake are quite small. That is, until we realized we didn’t have to look that far.
Grammy Award winning producers Eliot Kennedy and Brian Grant, the people responsible for the success of Spice Girls and S-Club 7, are currently on a quest to find the best female talents in Asia and launch them into an unprecedented international music career.
And so behold: the Project Lotus Talent Search.
A talent search involving the whole of Asia, the producers are looking for 5 girls each coming from every country – China, Japan, Korea, India, and the Philippines – and put them in a place called Lotus Academy, known as the greatest dance, vocal, and recording studio in Hong Kong.
Simply put, 25 girls will be vying for the ultimate opportunity to debut as a member the world’s latest girl group phenomenon.
The Lotus Academy includes an award-winning choreographer, an official vocal coach, a nutritionist, and even a gym instructor to make sure these women are at the top of their game.
Before you go on to associate this talent search with the likes of American Idol know that the show will only actually document the process of how the search materializes.
Project Lotus promises that they are not out there to show the drama that goes on behind closed doors, but only the official premise of the show, which is the honing of these ladies' talents.
Auditions in the five cities involved will begin on August 15, 2010, after which Kennedy and Grant would narrow the numbers to five girls each from Japan, Korea, China, India and the Philippines.
The 25 finalists will undergo intensive training at the Lotus Academy running from September 15 to October 30 this year. The show is not until a couple of months, but we're pumped up already.
If you have dreams at night about becoming a pop star and have the killer looks and talent to go with it, swing by www.projectlotus.tv and audition today. It is going to be fan – wait for it – tastic!
