Demi Lovato is teaming up with You Generation (the YouTube channel from Simon Cowell's Syco Music) to have a talent contest in which the winner will win a trip to Los Angeles to meet Lovato and producer Savan Kotecha, who has worked with numerous artists, including Lovato, Usher and "X Factor" alumni such as One Direction and Cher Lloyd. On Sept. 9, 2013, Lovato made a video announcement about the contest.
Here are You Generation's details about the contest:
It's Popstar month with You Generation this September, and we're searching for a brand new solo pop artist with our friend, DEMI LOVATO!! The winner of the competition will get to meet Demi in person! More details on the prize below...
To enter, all you have to do is submit a YouTube video of you singing one of the following tracks:
"Lady Marmalade" - LaBelle: backing track http://bit.ly/YouGpop1
"Pass Out" - Tinie Tempah: backing track http://bit.ly/YouGpop2
"More Than This" - One Direction: backing track http://bit.ly/YouGpop3
"Makes Me Wonder" - Maroon 5: backing track http://bit.ly/YouGpop4
"Give Your Heart A Break" - Demi Lovato: backing track http://bit.ly/YouGpop5
You can either sing a cappella, download one of the backing tracks above, or even use your own instruments. We love it when you get creative and change the style of the song! But please, no mashups - it's a boring legal issue for us!
The deadline to get your video entry in is Sept. 21, 2013 at midnight Pacific Time. The winner will be flown to Los Angeles to meet Demi, her record producer (who also works with One Direction and Usher), and her stylist!
