Who: Tomorrow’s Next Big Star

Las Vegas, NV (March 19, 2009) – National Talent Search USA (NTSUSA), the first national all-inclusive talent competition of its kind, today announced the official launch of its highly anticipated campaign to find tomorrow's next big stars. Nationwide contenders from Music Groups (Vocalists, Bands, or Solo Singers) and Emcees to Dance Crews and Models are invited to each battle for the chance to win the National Title, while representing their city at Live Elimination Competition shows. The shows, which will kick off Summer 2009 and be filmed live at select Simon Malls nationwide, are expected to draw millions.

Contestants audition initially via NTSUSA’s innovative virtual process at http://www.nationaltalentsearch.com/. This process, which has already garnered thousands of entrants, has also generated an incredible fan base for auditioners across the nation. Site visitors have the opportunity to vote and select the Top 10 online audition winners in each talent category who will perform at the Live Elimination Competition at select locations in their city.

Live Elimination Competition winners, after earning a $1,000 cash reward, will advance to the next level for the privilege to represent their city at the National Finals Competition. National Finals Competition contestants will then compete for a $25,000 cash reward, a two (2) year artist development contract, national touring opportunities, media coverage, television exposure, the coveted National Winner title for their talent category, and much more.

“We are excited about the launch of our novel competition and selection process,” states Darrin Campbell, Executive Producer of National Talent Search USA. “Many people are familiar with American Idol, America's Next Top Model, America's Best Dance Crew, and a host of similar shows. But never before has a competition covered so many areas of talent at one time. Talent remains valuable and in demand even during a weak economic environment, we expect to provide hope for thousands who dream of becoming professionals in the entertainment industry, while healing the hearts of others thru performance. What better way to do this than to create a positive project for them to engage in, as well as gain education and knowledge from the process.”

Among the benefits of NTSUSA competition process, contestants, auditioners, and/or supporters will be exposed to:

- Exceptional marketing and promotional opportunities,
- Professional and industry expert critique of auditions,
- Fan base creation well in advance of the Live Competition,
- Live audience performances at select Simon Malls around the nation,
- FREE access to the hottest new website created for rising stars (myNTSUSA.com) for friends,

“We salute, and are pleased to support, Darrin [Campbell’s] unprecedented initiative to create a staple such as National Talent Search USA in the entertainment industry,” states Goldie Walker, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing of Silver Starr Art Studios LLC. “This initiative has taken, and will continue to take, the industry by storm, as it simultaneously provides undiscovered talent with the nationwide exposure they need to realize their dreams while connecting them with essential resources to sustain and exceed those dreams.”
