In what has been almost 20 weeks thus far, Noodle, Murdoc, 2D and Russel are very close to announcing the winner in their search for a star. They have been muddling through over 100 entries a week and have picked out 10 to be put out for public vote. Submissions from the many wanting to make it included pictures, music, videos, directors, artists, musicians, freaks, circus performers, and special effects wizards. Now, there are just two more public rounds to go. The winner will be announced August 3 and will be invited to collaborate with Gorillaz in a manner that works with the winner’s talent.
The timeline is as follows:
July 18-22: Public vote begins, eliminating 2 a day till the Lucky 13 remain.
July 25-29: The Lucky 13 are put to the Public Vote, eliminating 2 a day till 3 remain.
August 1: The final 3 are put to the Public Vote
August 3: Winner announced
