INXS Wants You

Published: 2004-12-13
Multi-platinum rockers INXS have announced that they will launch a new reality series on CBS with survivor creator Mark Burnett that will chronicle their search for a new lead singer. Their original front man Michael Hutchence hanged himself in 1997 after INXS had enjoyed nearly two decades of stardom and 30 million records sold. The contest will be open to men and women over 21 who will be asked to perform up to three songs (they don't have to be INXS songs). They will be able to perform to a CD track or with one musical instrument. The show will make one Canadian stop in Toronto. Auditions will begin in select cities in the US, UK and Australia beginning in January.
