Kids Incorporated: Meet The Tween Stars of ‘Majors & Minors’

The airwaves are currently clogged with TV talent competitions, but before you let reality fatigue set in, make room on your DVR for one more talent show, this one with a twist: The Hub TV Network's "Majors & Minors," which premieres this Friday, September 23. Sure, other shows like "America's Got Talent" and "The X Factor" have opened up their competitions to the underage set, and even "American Idol" lowered its age limit this year, but "Majors & Minors" is all about the kids. And in an entertainment era that fetishizes extreme youth, with pop stars who are practically preschool-aged, it seems like this show could be a hit with that key tween demographic.   

"Majors & Minors," developed and executive-produced by smash songwriter Evan Bogart (Beyonce, Britney Spears, Enrique Iglesias, Jason Derulo, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna), will follow a dozen talented tykes and teens (ages 10-16) competing for a recording contract with Boardwalk/RCA. Along the way, they'll mentored by an impressive roster of A-list adults, like, Brandy, Colbie Caillat, Avril Lavigne, and Sean Kingston, and even a few reality veterans like Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson, Leona Lewis, and (cue childish squeeing) Adam Lambert.

Exclusive clips of those and other "M&M" mentors will be featured in future Reality Rocks posts, but right now, let's focus on the minors, with this never-seen behind-the-scenes footage of the audition process. There are a few Bieber-haired cuties in the mix, but can any of them become the next Justin Bieber, Greyson Chance, Cody Simpson, or Willow Smith? Or even the next Rebecca Black? Check 'em out and decide if these kids have what it takes to compete with the big boys.
