Platinum Hit is a new music competition series showcasing emerging singer-songwriters on their quest to become the next big hitmaker. The show features Jewel as host and Kara DioGuardi as head judge.
Platinum Hit follows 12 musicians as they battle through a series of innovative songwriting challenges testing their creativity, patience and drive. From dance track to love ballad, every episode features a different theme that requires the contestants to write and perform lyrics from multiple genres. Their intimate life stories and personal drama unfold within the show and in their lyrics as they compete and live together. To find out if they have what it takes, some of today’s most influential artists are featured throughout the series to help guest judge the competition. In the end, only one is crowned the ultimate hitmaker and walks away with a $100,000 cash prize, publishing deal with Sony, BMI Songwriters The Writing Camp and a recording deal with RCA/Jive.
