Prince Harry joins DJ Goldie in new TV talent show

DJ Goldie with Prince Harry

Prince Harry's getting involved with a new X Factor style talent show that will end with a huge concert at Buckingham Palace.

The programme will be led by DJ and actor Goldie who will search for the best young music stars to form a band.

The BBC Two series will be called Goldie's Band: By Royal Appointment and will look for the best musicians between age 17-24.

The top 12 will form a band and play in front of Prince Harry in a big finale.

The wannabes will be mentored by music experts, including one of Robbie Williams' songwriters, Guy Chambers.

Prince Harry has already met Goldie to talk about how it will all work.

Huge challenges

The DJ said: "This is one of the most inspiring projects I've ever been involved with.

"It's all about unearthing musical talent that's under the radar in Britain - finding young people who've faced huge challenges and have never had the opportunities that they deserve."
