MTV's VJ hunt culminates in ishtyle in Mumbai

 400 odd wannabe veejays from all over the city and suburbs converged at Mikanos for live auditions arranged by MTV on 10 May.

The Third MTV VJ Hunt, launched in Mumbai over a month ago, went into overdrive on 8, 9 and 10 May when the MTV VJ Hunter, the channel's latest mascot, went on the prowl looking for potential veejay talent. From local hangouts to the hippest clubs (Fluid, Fire N Ice, Copa Cabana among them), the hunter in yellow marked his presence among Generation Next.

The hunt culminated at the audition at the centrally located nightclub on Friday night. Among those who tried their luck were hopefuls from as far as Indore and Chennai.

The auditions, in true MTV ishytyle, were whacky, with wannabe VJs asked to imitate Laooo Prasad Yadav and MTV VJs, among others. The hunt was followed by a late evening bash at Mikanos.

Celeb MTV VJs Cyrus Broacha and Mini Mathur were the hosts for the evening. Four of the hopefuls were called on stage to perform. None, however, had the chutpzah of 'Cyrus the virus' or the charm of a Maliaka or a Mini.

Cyrus and Mini were both in form, regaling the audience, while pop diva Sophiya enthralled with her performance. Remo Fernandes, as only he can, had everybody swaying and dancing to his Goan folk songs. DJ Nasha took over around 12 midnight.

Earlier VJ hunts discovered MTV VJs Maria, Nikhil, Amrita, Mini, Cyrus Sahukar and Asif.
