There's a whole lot of shifting going on in the realm of reality TV singing competitions. Simon Cowell's "X Factor" won't be renewed for a fourth season, "AI" has had several shake ups with judges and Cee Lo Green won't be coaching on "The Voice" anymore. But, BET's Sunday Best is holding steady and gearing up to audition talent for its seventh season.

Kicking off on March 1 in Houston, TX Sunday Best auditions will be held in four cities around the nation throughout the month. Auditioners must try out with a song from a pre-determined list of 25 traditional and contemporary selections.

Past Sunday Best winners are Crystal Aiken, Y'Anna Crawley, Leandria Johnson, Amber Bullock, Joshua Rogers and reigning champ Tasha Page Lockhart. Several other contestants have benefited from the Sunday Best experience, having gone on to record albums such as Alexis Spight, Latice Crawford, Jessica Reedy and Denetra Moore. Do you have what it takes to join the ranks of these talented singers or the nerves to face the discerning critiques of judges Donnie McClurkin, Kierra Sheard and Yolanda Adams?

With the addition of the VIP Suite, 200 potential contestantss can forego standing in long lines and go straight to preliminary judges. CLICK HERE to find out how. Best of luck to all participants. More audition details are available below and at http://www.bet.com/shows/sunday-best.html
