Really, folks, what are you waiting for? Full story below…

Per the vid above, he said:

“Years ago, I did something that will go down in television history, this show called ‘Making the Band,’ MTV called me out of nowhere and said, ‘What do you think about partnering and bringing ‘Making the Band’ back?’ I was like, man, something so great, sometimes you don’t need to mess with it. You need to just leave it alone.”

He stopped short of  “confirming-confirming” the tea, but went on to add:

“I’m kind of on the fence about it. I feel like that’s my calling as a coach, to be able to take young talent and take them to the next level.”

The teasing continued on Twitter, with Diddy and MTV bantering back and forth…

Launched in 2002, ‘Making The Band’ evolved into an Urban property under Diddy’s shepherding and in docu-series style was one of the first true insights the masses got  into how the music industry works.

It also proved a potent platform to endearing the public to the stars of tomorrow and the material they were working on. Something which was integral to the rise of Danity Kane – who still enjoy a loyal following ’til this day.

With the finale airing in 2009, a decade off-air sounds like more than enough time on the bench. And we’d bet it’s already happening and that this is designed to angle it as being “fan demanded.” Especially given that it’s

Whatever the case, we’re here for it.

Do you want to see the return of ‘Making The Band’?

    The only reason he’s even doing this is because his other show got cancelled. Diddy has nothing better to do with his time than be on Instagram and Twitter posting inspirational quotes, selling liquor and still doing this tired “let me make u a star” routine.

    Sis needs to come out already. Y’all already know.

    MTV Why not team up with someone new? The ladies of danity Kane made it quite known that Diddy doesn’t actually give a damn about the groups once the show is done. Hell what happened to Donnie Klang?

    DIDDY HAS NO LONGTERM SUCCESS in solidifying bands, artists, groups or other music stars.

    He is simply the man who places the focal act in front of the masses.

    Otherwise, they better have their own management, A&R, PR team and other agent reps in place — beyond his scope, record label or contracts.

    Diddy is POISON to the success of a big thing amongst the industry. He’s egotistical and too self righteous to truly develop the brand & likeness of other creatives.

    the party said it would have been a slap in the face to Diddy to have him give Mary J Blige the lifetime achievement award on stage didn’t, he furthered his education also, but he can do making the band but it’s a new game now with the long hair. I like the show he did work for Diddy on vh1 the party said we see now why bet was hating
