Former American Idol judge Paula Abdul has co-launched AuditionBooth, an online audition platform that will connect aspiring talents with casting directors, producers and managers.
A beta test site rolled out on Monday, allowing showbiz rookies to answer casting questions and record --and if necessary, re-record-- casting videos via webcams.
Fox reality series MasterChef is among the first of about two dozen or so high-profile shows that the founders say will be seeking talent on the site in the early going.
Abdul, also an equity partner and board member, put together inspirational videos and audition advice on a part of the site called Paula's Blog. For entertainment professionals, she hopes the site can provide "fresh new personalities."
