American Band, Fox

Australian TV personality Ian "Dicko" Dickson ("Australian Idol"), Singer/songwriter John Rzeznik (The Goo Goo Dolls), legendary percussionist and performer Shelia E. ("The Glamorous Life," "A Love Bizarre") and host Dominic Bowden ("New Zealand Idol") will narrow down hopefuls to 10 semifinalist bands who will perform weekly in front of a live studio audience competing to secure a contract with 19 Recordings and the title of "Next Great American Band"
The producers of 'American Idol' have created a similar competition to discover, with the audience's help, a great rock group (rather than individual pop star)
