NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OurStage.com, the innovative online social platform for discovering music, announces a new program geared to give emerging musicians the chance to advance their career on a national scale with a performance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live". Kicking off this September, musicians across the US will compete in a monthly competition via OurStage.com to win the one-of-a-kind opportunity to perform their original song on the premier late night TV show.
"At OurStage, our focus is always on enabling young musicians and artists to further their career," said Ben Campbell, Founder & CEO OurStage Inc. " The music industry is constantly changing and through this new program, we are dedicated to strengthening our shared goal and efforts to champion emerging artists' careers nationwide. It's very exciting to provide this platform and engage the fans from the OurStage community, so they too are part of this experience."
Each month, artists of all genres will be invited to submit original tracks on OurStage.com. Fans will judge submissions and top ranked artists will be reviewed by the OurStage Panel – a collection of judges comprised of noted music industry heavyweights. One artist each month will emerge as the grand prize winner and head to Hollywood, CA to perform on "Jimmy Kimmel Live". The emerging artists who will be awarded the coveted monthly slot will perform on the same stage as established superstars including Kanye West, Adele and Gwen Stefani.
