Late Nite Casting Call

  1. 1. Description of the Casting Call

    NXTM is seeking qualified individual performers, musicians or a group of performers performing together as a musical group (singularly or collectively, an “Artist”) for an opportunity to perform on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. The general public will help identify these Artists by showing support on social media sites. The Casting Calls are conducted on a calendar month basis and are open to Artists that meet the qualification standards set forth in paragraph 2 and any additional standards that the Producers may establish from time to time.

    Participating Artists must provide NXTM LLC (the Casting Call “Administrator”) with complete access to a maximum of seven of their social media sites (“Sites”), including, but not limited to, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and YouTube, Vimeo, and Soundcloud. The procedures for providing full access are set forth at the Casting Call registration site (“Registration Site”).

    Administrator will calculate the number of fans (“Fans”) Artists have on their combined Sites at the beginning of each monthly Casting Call. Only Artists that have a minimum of 25,000 Fans, as such term is defined in the following sites: Facebook: “Like” a “Fan Page”; Twitter, Soundcloud, “Follower”; MySpace, “Friend”,,, “Subscriber”, will be eligible to participate in this Casting Call. The Administrator will track each Artist’s Fan activity and calculate the total numerical increase in Fans from the first to the last day of a monthly Casting Call to determine an Artist’s ranking. The number of Fans of the end of each monthly casting call will establish the baseline number for the next month’s Casting Call.

    A leaderboard will permit the Artists to track their standings throughout the month. The leaderboard will be updated several times daily. At the conclusion of each monthly Casting Call, the Artists will be ranked according to the number of new Fans they attract during the Casting Call period on all Sites to which Administrator has received access. The Administrator will refer the top ranking eligible Artists to the producers of Jimmy Kimmel Live (“Producers”) for their consideration as determined by the number of new Fans an Artist attracts in the Casting Call period. The number of Artists that may be referred will be posted each month at the commencement of the monthly Casting Call. The Producers, in their sole discretion, may select any referred Artist to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live, regardless of the Artist’s ranking, but the Producers have no obligation to extend an invitation to any Artist in any month and may discontinue the Casting Calls at any time.

    Artists that enter as a group (a “Band”) must appoint a single Artist Representative (“Representative”) who will serve as the contact person for the Band (see paragraph 2). The Representative will provide all necessary registration information (see paragraph 3).
