Much ado about something; fresh VJs required

- January 21st, 2013

If a VJ introduces a video that isn’t there, does it make a sound?

Whoa, too deep for me.

Point being, VJs still exist, even though channels such as MuchMusic don’t spend a lot of time playing music videos any more.

Thus, in the spirit of Menudo, the 2013 Much VJ Search is doing exactly what its name describes.

MuchMusic has announced that the competition officially opens on Feb. 19. Full details are available at muchmusic.com.

In short, starting on Feb. 19, VJ hopefuls can register, create a profile and upload a submission video. Hard deadline for submissions is March 10 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Finalists will be featured in a month-long reality series that premieres April 1.

MuchMusic declares that the Much VJ Search “gives everyone a shot at the coolest job ever – to be a Much VJ. No experience is required; the only criteria needed are a passion for music and pop culture, a kick-ass personality, a flair for television, and the gift of gab.”

The winner of the Much VJ Search is presented with the Erica Ehm Cup. Not really, but that would be cool.
