MuchMusic VJ Search coming to U of G

MuchMusic will be coming to the University of Guelph Nov. 6 to audition VJ hopefuls from 7 p.m to 1 a.m. in Peter Clark Hall. Guelph is one of 14 Canadian cities the MuchMusic VJ Search team will be visiting until Nov. 30.

The audition is open to residents of Canada 18 years or older as of Dec. 22, 2003. Participants must complete and submit the VJ Search questionnaire to receive a numbered wristband Nov. 6. Starting at 7 p.m. and at the top of every hour until 1 a.m., the MuchMusic crew will draw wristband numbers of people to audition in that hour. Although a maximum of 200 wristbands will be distributed, getting a wristband doesn't guarantee an audition. People may also audition by sending a tape to MuchMusic.

People are also welcome to watch the auditions, which will be recorded live-to-tape and submitted for judging. Semi-finalists will be flown to MuchMusic in Toronto to compete Jan. 17 and 18 in a live-to-air final competition.
