The winner will head to Hollywood for a lead role in Talent the scripted web series and receive a recording contract with Jive Records.
Talent, based on the Alloy book of the same name from The New York Times bestselling author Zoey Dean, tells the story of a young woman whose dreams of becoming a singer are dashed and rises from that disappointment by helping an unlikely girl become a superstar.
