Out of a 40,000-strong field of aspiring vocalists and rappers, six people became the focus of MTV's Making the Band series during 2003. Babs (Lynese Wiley), Dylan (Dylan John), Freddrick (Frederick Watson), Ness (Lloyd Mathis), Sara (Sara Stokes), and Young City (Rodney "Chopper" Hill) were handpicked to become part of P. Diddy's Bad Boy empire. The group's debut album, 2003's Too Hot for T.V., was prefaced with a season's worth of drama-filled Making the Band episodes, which documented the cheesecake runs, in-fighting, and recording sessions that led up to its release. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
