The group toured with Christina Aguilera and The Pussycat Dolls and will be releasing a new album on Bad Boy Records in 2008. This season we will see if Diddy can apply his magic touch to create the ultimate all-male band. From MTV's Time's Square studio, fans will welcome the 10 finalist from one of the most exciting seasons of the hit reality series Making The Band. In the season finale Diddy made a shocking announcement deciding not to pick the band but instead solicited the help of the MTV viewers. At the live event on August 26th Diddy will reveal which deserving cast members will be chosen for the few coveted spots in the band. Which of the ten finalists -- Donnie, Michael, Jeremy, Brian C, Robert, Qwanell, Willie, Brian A, DeAngelo and Dyshon will remain standing?
