It looks like Sean Combs is bringing back an oldie, but goodie (in his mind.)
On Monday, the producer and rapper announced via social media that he’s decided to reboot his popular MTV singing competition “Making The Band.”
“I’ve made my decision… #MakingTheBand is coming back!!! This will be a global talent search, upload your auditions now using #MTBcasting!!” the 49-year-old said in a video.
“Sometimes you live in your own bubble and you may not really know the importance of something you created,” adding, “And with Making the Band, myself and MTV created something special. We empowered young talent from all over the world. No matter what hood they was from, no matter what background they was from, everybody got a chance.”
The second the news was confirmed, Black Twitter got in a tizzy with some folks excited about the news and others left wondering why and will the Grammy winner pay the winners this time.

I’m exited to see that #MakingTheBand is coming back. It was one of my favorite shows of all time.— Aaron Cantrell (@AaronTheNewsGuy) July 15, 2019
Since it’s coming back @MTV should do another show following #danitykane. Their journey was cut short on the show, but they’ve been grinding ever since. pic.twitter.com/a9dfeciVWz

An email I never thought I’d receive in 2019: an announcement that Diddy is bringing back ‘’Making the Band.’— Jewel Wicker (@jewelwickershow) July 15, 2019
Diddy is doing another “Making the Band” and I am already in tears.— Coco (@I_AM_CHELL3) July 15, 2019
@MTV and @Diddy have announced the return of “Making the Band.” Yes, I’ll obviously watch. What I want tho is the older seasons on Hulu. Tired of looking at low quality rips on YouTube. pic.twitter.com/pxzstVWom6— Gerrick Kennedy (@GerrickKennedy) July 15, 2019
