Are you the best band in the house?

A new talent search to find the ‘Best Band in the House’ could see you and your group swap the back room of the local pub for the international stage. The competition, launched by Renaissance Hotels and MTV Europe Music Awards, aims to discover six of the best unsigned bands from the UK, France and Germany.

Those that make it through will perform at Renaissance Hotels across Europe. That could be the award-winning St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London, Renaissance Paris Vendome Hotel or Renaissance Hamburg. And the overall winner will perform at the MTV Europe Music Awards – broadcast live all over the world from Frankfurt’s Festhalle this November – alongside some the world’s biggest acts; in the past, the show has featured the likes of Madonna, U2, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Adele and Coldplay.

This isn’t the first time Renaissance Hotels has joined forces with the music industry. RLife LIVE is the hotel brand’s entertainment platform that has helped push pop stars including Bruno Mars, who won ‘Best New Artist’ at last year’s MTV EMA, Robyn and Janelle Monae into the limelight. Hotel guests have also been treated to exclusive performances by Macy Gray and Jamie Cullum.

‘The key is to give exposure to the best of this emerging talent on the verge of superstardom and to offer our Renaissance guests intimate access to true discovery moments so they can say “I knew them when…”,’ says Osama Hirzalla of Marriott International, which owns Renaissance Hotels.

All the bands have to do to enter is upload a video of themselves performing by 29 April 2012*; the public vote then opens on 15 May.
