Although it IS produced by none other than Ryan Seacrest. The show is among the first to air with ads on YouTube, and will include a plethora of other artists including Jason DeRulo and Katy Perry.
It’s called “Best.Cover.Ever.” and will be hosted by Ludacris. A famous artist will be the focus of each episode and work with musicians who will be doing a cover of their song, in whatever way they choose.
Honestly, it sounds like a pretty cool idea. And the prize is pretty cool too; the opportunity to perform a duet with the artist of the song they covered on their episode.
Variety quotes Keith as saying:
“The internet is the ultimate vehicle for creative discovery,” said Urban. “It connects people, lets their talents be heard and sometimes produces stars. I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens – to hearing how people interpret my songs – and, fingers crossed, to find a killer duet partner.”
If you think you have what it takes, you can still submit a video audition to be on the show at TheBestCoverEver.com.
