Orange Unsigned Act
It's Britain's coolest and most credible new music showcase, where only artists who write and perform their own songs can apply. At stake is an incredible record deal and cash advance.
Hosted by Alex Zane, the search is led by Blur's Alex James, Queen of Radio 1 Jo Whiley and Universal Music's Simon Gavin. Each week they will also be joined by a celebrity guest judge from the world of music as they sort the brilliant from the bogstandard.
50 acts are invited to auditions where they will play their best song live for an audience over 4 dates. The best 8 acts then embark on a national tour where they will play gigs alongside big name acts and be knocked out by the judges one by one.
