LL COOL J and Boomdizzle Put New Artist on Stage at TV.com Now Awards
Online Contest Sends Aspiring Recording Artist to New Award Show
Palo Alto, CA. - July 12, 2010 - Boomdizzle Networks today announced a partnership with TV.com to host the Want2BOnStage? contest for aspiring artists to win a trip to the TV.com Now Awards on July 23 at San Diego's Petco Park and perform live on stage.
Artists who are members of the Boomdizzle.com online music community may submit an original radio friendly track to the contest for the chance to perform at the awards pre-show in front of millions and to meet multi-platinum recording artist and actor LL COOL J.
With a leading role on the CBS show NCIS: LOS ANGELES, LL COOL J will attend the TV.com Now Awards in support of the show's second season premiering this fall. As creative director and co-founder of Boomdizzle Networks, he saw the Want2BOnStage? contest as the perfect opportunity to allow an aspiring artist the chance to gain worldwide exposure.
"Boomdizzle.com artists and TV.com fans share a very important thing - passion. They love the freedom of having creative video and music content at their fingertips. They also respect digital outlets that let them celebrate the content they enjoy most and influence other fans to join the movement," said LL COOL J.
Boomdizzle.com allows up and coming artists to release original recordings, remix and reproduce their favorite tracks, distribute music to an online community, and interact with other artists who can rate, comment, and rank their user-generated musical content. Recently, the site earned international recognition through recording artist and former contest winner Luther "Squeak" Jackson.
His first single, "My Dreams," was featured on Korean boy band Super Junior's latest album which sold 44,000 records on the first day of release and is now on track to go double platinum.
"We want to keep the momentum going with Boomdizzle in ways that give the artists a chance to be seen on a larger platform. The Want2BOnStage? contest with TV.com is just a great way we strive to create extraordinary opportunities for the Boomdizzle community of artists," said LL COOL J.
NCIS: LOS ANGELES airs Tuesdays at 9 pm on the CBS Television Network. Viewers can also catch full episodes on TV.com.
