There’s a lot of competitions these days, offering fans the opportunity to win pretty conventional prizes such as free gig tickets or an opportunity to go back stage and meet their favourite stars. However I can’t say Ive heard of one that allows aspiring singers to fast forward to their potential future and collaborate with them!
MasterCard has filled that void by launching an exclusive competition involving BRIT Awards 2012.
The name is ‘Something For The Fans‘, which supports its 14th year of partnership with The BRIT Awards. Working with current leading acts including Emeli Sandé, JLS and Labrinth, they are giving cardholders the opportunity to perform a ‘Priceless Duet’ with their favourite artists, which will even be aired on this year’s BRIT Awards on TV! A production from Labrinth can’t be bought for love or money at the moment, so if you’re a budding star this id beyond pricelss!
Somethingforthefans.co.uk is the place to register and provide your audition videos, and even if you don’t win there are hundreds of pairs of tickets to The BRIT Awards, so go ahead and try! It’s sure to be a big one this year, the nomination were just announced today!
My choices for British breakthrough act would have to be between Ed Sheeran and Emeli Sande, a ridiculously close one to call! Another one that caught my eye was British Single, with Ed Sheeran’s The A team my pick as the winner, but evidently it was a great year for UK music!
We ran a similar campaign with Mastercard in September 2011 called ‘Priceless London’, which gave exclusive access to west end shows and the city’s world-renowned museums,check more info here
