MTV has partnered with OurStage.com to help expose new artists. OurStage.com is a platform for new artists to gain exposure through competitions. Fans online are the actual ones doing the voting, pitting song against song, to see whose work will rise to the top. This partnership brings new excitement and hope for 90,000 artists in the OurStage community. This brings new venues and opportunities for these up and coming artists. OurStage has already tapped into mtvU Six Flags VMA Tour and the MTV Video Music Awards this summer. They now have worked out online co-promotions and now MTV has new music to include on TV, which gives much needed exposure for the OurStage community. This partnership works extremely well for both parties. OurStage broadens their platforms and increases their power of exposure. MTV gets a jump on fresh music where artists are ranked by the fans which helps to keep MTV more relevant and just simply adds to their arsenal.
