Diddy’s Sons, The Combs Cartel, To Judge ‘Making The Band’ Reboot

Published: Friday 21st Feb 2020 by Sam

‘Making The Band,’ as reported, is heading back to MTV this year.

Renown for creating and chronicling the journeys of Danity Kane and Day26, the Diddy helmed series is looking to create a fresh set of stars for the contemporary music marketplace.

And while the mogul’s stints as head of Bad Boy and Revolt make his know-how indisputable, it appears he’s keen to add a fresh slant to the revived version of the show.

For, he’s on-boarded his sons as judges.

Details below…

The announcement video revealed that the “Combs Cartel” – comprised of Quincy, Justin Combs, and King Combs – will help assist with picking the new group. They join returning choreographer Laurieann Gibson, who is now a co-producer too.

Open auditions will be held in the following cities:

February 28th and 29th  – Atlanta
March 7th and 8th – Houston
March 13th and 14th – Charlotte
March 21st and 22nd – New York City

[Click Here For Details]


The nepotism at play will no doubt polarize, but we imagine another angle is about bringing in a younger, social media savvy audience. Something each of Diddy’s socially popular sons ought to help with.

As for hopefuls being critiqued by acts who themselves are trying to find their way forward is kinda…

In any case, what are…

Your thoughts?

    What does his 3 dumb àss kids know about talent

    Diddy just like tyra banks emotionally abused the contestants on their shows.
    I will never support such foolishness.
    Thank u next bìtch

    Anyone who signs up for this must desperately be chasing clout or exposure. That or they’re delusional for thinking they won’t suffer the same fate as his previous bands.

  4. HavanaONana February 21, 2020

    Really Diddy you’re not done destroying young peoples hope and dreams of being a star? You did nothing for Da Band, Danity Kane, Day 26 or Donnie Klang but F them over for ratings.

    • Bluebird February 21, 2020

      ………………..OR Faith Evans. Mase. Total. Carl Thomas. and the list goes on and on…..Puff STOLE there money and disgarded them………….

      • D February 21, 2020

        Dirty Money, Notorious BIG, Junior Mafia, Cassie, Craig Mack, The Lox, 112, Loon, Cheri Dennis. Bad Boy Records (aka Puff Sociopath Daddy’s circus) is one of the worst offenders when it comes to neglecting and discarding their artists.

      Dont forget maze also

      Justice for maze.

      • Rihanna the King!! February 22, 2020

        who is maze? I hope you mean ma$e!

    • Paulo February 21, 2020

      Let’s be real, Cassie’s a model. Anything she got out of the music industry she needs to be thankful for cause her voice is bland and thin. She laid the Selena Gomez blueprint.

      Long Way 2 Go still a dope song tho

      • Clarks0oñ February 21, 2020

        U just described normani.

        Just like cassie, normani is a dancer with a bland voice.
        The only difference between normani and cassie are their skin tones.

      • Paulo February 21, 2020

        That makes sense.

        When you’re a tasteless tone deaf clown like you, of course.


      • Clarks0oñ February 21, 2020

        Bìtch u stan a faves who sings motivation, an Arianna Grande reject.

        Gurl ur like watery oats with no milk or sugar.

        Normani is a model/ dancer who cant sing.
        That NBA performance is engraved in the brains of everybody. She’s over.

      • Paulo February 21, 2020

        Blablabla Clownkson ?

    • I love big black c** February 21, 2020

      Justice for dirty money lol. Cassie is just Diddy’s s-e-x toy

  6. Truth February 21, 2020

    Wow this is a joke, all the artist he knows and he got these talentless kids judging. Wtf

    • Clarks0oñ February 21, 2020

      That’s what nepotism is

      These 3 spoilt kids have never charted any song on the hot 100, neither do they have years of industry experience or understand the hardships of being a music in the business etc

      How will they give industry advice to the contestants when they have never worked a day in their lives.

  7. Around the way filet February 21, 2020

    MTB should be left in the past. After seeing how he did his past artists including DaBand, Danity Kane and Day26 why would anyone audition? Diddy dumps his artists after he gets what he wants from them. Danity Kane shoulda been huge, but he never planned for them to continue as a legit group although the talent and hits were there. MTB is nothing but entertainment and another check for him and his talentless sons. Get the f*** outta here Sean!!!

  8. Paulo February 21, 2020

    They’re handsome young men but naaaah.

    • I love big black c** February 21, 2020

      Idr. I’m so thirsty for the boy on left, the right guy is cute tho. Would love to be their babysitter. All 3 on me but Diddy

  9. Dina Jane February 21, 2020

    Justice for Normani

    Diddy only focused on Camilla Cabello and he abandoned the rest

    People hyped her debut single so much that it flopped it didn’t even debut in the top 10 shame

    P Diddy shame
    You did the black girl wrong

    • Paulo February 21, 2020

      You mean Love Lies? It was top 10 for weeks. You can’t even troll properly. Stupid

  10. kiena February 21, 2020

    First of all why every Pannel want to reboot everything Full house,Beverly Hills, Charmed……. none of thos shows did well.

    To be realy honest the Making the band era ist completly over. Back in the day it was interessting for me because i wanted to know how the industry works but diddy never cared about his Artists.Even before Making the band his Artists had Problems with his way to do busniess with them. From all the bands he did Danity kane was the Band with the most international Potential.They could be very Huge. If he carred about them he coul make them outstanding. But he loved the TV show and the money that comes with the show more than the groups.

    No he want to put his sons to the show? Sory but what this boys know about hard hustle? To come from the ground and to work your ass up to the top?!

    The Crazy think is none of his bands survive no one . Now he want to make this show again for those who are clever dont even try to Audition for this show you have Social Media, Youtube and all this stuff promote use those platforms. Bad Boys Records did destroy a lot of carries!

  11. Cûûmila Cebolla February 21, 2020

    Only an idiot would sign at Diddy‘s label

    • Dina Jane February 21, 2020

      Don’t say that Normani is thinking about signing

      • Cûûmila Cebolla February 21, 2020

        Sounds more like something DaughterOfAWhöreMila would do

      • Clarks0oñ February 21, 2020

        Gorilla normani is still getting dragged for her NBA performance.

        An ugly dirty c*** dump.

      • Cûûmila Cebolla February 21, 2020

        Just like your mom ?

      • Clarks0oñ February 21, 2020

      • Cûûmila Cebolla February 21, 2020

        Ur mother is a shìt eater, be quiet

      • Clarks0oñ February 21, 2020

        Everybody has shàt in ur mother’s mouth.

        Ur mother is a human toilet

      • Cûûmila Cebolla February 21, 2020

        Your mother is nothing but a cümdump for Normani‘s father.

      • Clarks0oñ February 21, 2020

        And u mother eats poòp for a living.

      • Cûûmila Cebolla February 21, 2020

        That’s okay boo. At least we have Camila Cabello to clean it all up as she was always destined to do ?

      • Clarks0oñ February 21, 2020

        U are the child of a poòp eater and ur proud of that?

        Ur mother swallows pooh for a living.
        A dirty nasty w*****

  12. Fancy BISH February 21, 2020

    Did y’all not get the memo? Miss Gibson is BACK! Let’s get to WORK my loves, I don’t have all day to help you, and I won’t..I mean I will, but I won’t…you guys get that? You didn’t? What didn’t you understand, hunnie? Wait, shut up! *Laurieann Gibson voice* ? ❤️

  13. 1988 February 21, 2020

    You idiots can say whatever you want about DIDDY but he made his artists SUPERSTARS and ICONIC HOUSEHOLD NAMES. My parents know who Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Notorious BIG, Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, Ma$e and Puff Daddy are the way LaFace (Babyface and L.A. Reid) made HOUSEHOLD names and ICONS for TLC, Toni Braxton, Outkast, Ciara and Usher (Diddy also helped Usher’s debut album and TLC’s CrazySexyCool project). DIDDY helped even Jay-Z, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj careers!! He has helped so many!!!! He took the money he was given and helped make the best possible albums for these artists by any means necessary. They went multi-platinum! It was the SUPERSTAR contract. You are left with CLASSIC ALBUMS AND SONGS LOL. It was the OLD SCHOOL WAY from the MOTOWN DAYS. Danity Kane went from ABSOLUTE NOTHING to No. 1 because of DIDDY! They all have platforms now to continue to make money if they so choose to. This is black excellence and I will be watching! Laurianne Gibson is back too!!! 🙂

    • Dina Jane February 21, 2020

      Normani an iconic name? Uhkay

    • Paulo February 21, 2020

      You just made it worse by comparing him to La Reid and LaFace. A whole bunch of thieves!!!

    • Fancy BISH February 21, 2020

      @1988, the truth ✅ ?
      @Paulo, but who’s doing it better tho, especially for black people, than Diddy and L.A. Reid? It’s 2020 and nobody has really done it better…I would add Andre Harrell and Suge Knight too! They cranked out superstars, point blank PERIODTT. The music industry as a whole is pennies every album sold until you get the better contract ? But I can’t even imagine where black music would be without Uptown, Bad Boy, Death Row, Def Jam, No Limit, LaFace…like, for real, we would’ve been listening to some certified junk bunk, and you know what I’m talking about ? They created a dominance in the 90’s for black music…Spotify wouldn’t be dominated by Rap and R&B leaning artists had it not been for the 90’s raising kids on great R&B/Hip-Hop! Yaaas, yaaas, WHAT *Lil Kim voice* ? Diddy and L.A. aren’t just executives, they are producers! Many music executives don’t know how to make the music…and they damn sure don’t know how to make music with flavor lol…Berry Gordy started that level of excellence ?

      • 1988 February 21, 2020

        @Fancy No lies detected!!!! 🙂 Everything and everyone you named are MUSICAL ROYALTY! PERFECTION! 🙂

        As far as you @Paulo….T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli have nothing bad to say about L.A. Reid and Babyface to this very day! AND THAT IS REAL TALK!! Their real beef was with Pebbles and Clive Davis. They absolutely ADORE their music and wouldn’t have done it any other way….lol. They were like “Gurl , we in the studio with L.A. and Babyface!!!”…”we big time gurl”…..”say huh? say what?”…”and that is “oooooooh on the TLC TIP”! 🙂

      • Paulo February 21, 2020

        I can’t dispute that, musically they were on point and they helped shape my favorite era in mainstream music yes ? I’m glad TBoz and Chilli are at peace with their past but that doesn’t change the fact that LA Reid had a vocal legend like Toni Braxton counting pennies. I appreciate the musical efforts of him and Diddy but the exploiting of artists particularly women I can’t ignore.

      • Fancy BISH February 21, 2020

        @1988, and that is ooooooooh, on the TLC tip! ? ✅ ? Shout out to Pebbles tho, aka ya girl Pebz ?
        @Paulo, isn’t it crazy how much classic music came from these names alone? You said Toni and I’m just thinking, LAWD the HITS ?

      • 1988 February 21, 2020

        @Fancy It was just business. Pebbles vision and talent eye is second to none. She found the most perfect group I have ever seen. Talk about on point! TLC is so perfect together it’s almost like a dream. #Mercedes Boy (wrote by herself) #Whip Appeal (co-wrote). Pebbles pen game is strong! haha

  14. I love big black c** February 21, 2020

    His sons are yummy and good looking . I’m pretty sure they all got the good genes from JLo

  15. Mark111 February 21, 2020

    So Empire? These dudes can’t even launch their own careers.

  16. The f*** would whitney say February 21, 2020

    Why didn’t y’all ask Fatima Robinson to choreograph

    • The f*** would whitney say February 21, 2020

      He still needs a big name to be part of the show…..he needs to be on the show or I’m not watching it

  17. Adina… Adina… Say Adina February 21, 2020

    Didn’t he just have a talent show with Megan Trainor and DJ Khalid on Fox? Anyone who does this is CLEARLY just hoping to get big from TV bc a music career is NOT in the cards for them. This will be a drama filled type show not focused on talent… has to be… Why else would he get his kids to be judges? I will not be watching this. Agreed that Diddy put a lot of people on back in the day, but he NEEDED them just as much as they needed him bc without them, he wasn’t relevant. That’s why he made sure he popped up in allll of their vids with that awful 2step he does. Now, he’s a household name and a brand… he will use these people and spit them out without a second thought

  18. PinotNoir February 21, 2020

    King? What kinda name is that?
