On Monday, Diddy revealed that he is bringing "Making the Band" back to MTV. The show, which was the vehicle responsible for the creation of bands such as Danity Kane and Da Band, ended in 2009. However, the rapper revealed on his social media that the hiatus is over and the reality competition show will be returning in 2020.

The announcement, which can be seen below, shows Diddy discussing why he decided to reboot the show.

"With 'Making the Band,' myself, and MTV, we created something special," Diddy said, adding, "We empowered young talent from all over the world."

Continuing, he said, "I loved it. It was, like, one of the happiest times of my life."

He divulged that he had privately contemplated what would really inspire him at this point in his career, which is how he drew the conclusion that the answer was "bringing 'Making the Band' back."

Initially, the franchise began with Lou Pearlman at the helm in 2000. At that point, it aired on ABC. The first outing led to the formation of the boy band O-Town, and two subsequent seasons focused on the story of that group as they navigated taking on a tour and creating an album. The program moved to MTV in 2002 and Diddy took the reins.

Anyone interested in auditioning for the show can do so via video submission on social media, the mogul said in his announcement. Deadline reports contestants must be at least 18 years old and be able to comply with the eligibility requirements. To join the global talent search, use the hashtag #MTBCasting.
