In 2019, Netflix is making its much-anticipated debut into the world of talent competitions with a brand new bingeable reality show called Rhythm + Flow.

Taking inspiration from popular music competitions like The X Factor and The Voice, the new reality show will search for undiscovered musical talent with hip hop at the centre.

So, popstar judges will be replaced by rap royalty, as the show sets out to find America’s next big hip hop star.

Here’s everything you need to know about Rhythm + Flow, from start date to judges and more.

What is Rhythm + Flow?

Produced by Grammy award-winning singer John Legend, Rhythm +Flow is Netflix’s first ever hip hop talent show.

The show is described as a “multi-city competition series” which aims to find unsigned and undiscovered hip hop talent.

The panel of celebrity judges will travel across the U.S auditioning members of the public who think they have what it takes to be “the next unreleased, underground hip hop superstar”.

Each heat will see the competitors test their rap game, first in the live auditions, then in music videos and rap battles and finally with collaborations.
