The show, which is produced by Mike Sherman Productions Inc., based in Delray Beach, south Florida, has been broadcasting since 2003 - first on WBFS in Miami and several other national cable networks. Due to its popularity and consistent ratings, it was retained by Baruch Television Group and Baruch Entertainment, known for syndicating over 500 TV shows such as 'Be In Tune' and 'The Weekend Vibe', and motion picture packages.[7]

The aspiring artists can upload a video clip to the show's website, where it is displayed and voted on by the viewing audience. Each week, the winner advances to the following week's show. The ultimate winner will be given a major record deal. This interactivity has enhanced the show's ratings, making it one of the highest rated shows in its time slot in south Florida.
