Combs will be kicking off his tour later than expected after undergoing surgery for a shoulder injury. The rapper and business mogul announced his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour will now begin Sept. 1 in Chicago to give him more time to recover from surgery.

    Diddy's "Making the Band" is officially coming back to TV.

    The music mogul announced Monday that the hit series, where he discovered groups including platinum-sellers Danity Kane, would return to MTV in 2020.

    "Making the Band" made its debut on ABC in 2000 when Lou Pearlman, who managed the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync, launched the show and formed the boy band O-Town. Diddy re-vamped the show for MTV in 2002 and discovered the rap group Da Band. Diddy also launched the careers of Day 26, Donnie Klang and Danity Kane — who released two No.1 albums under his Bad Boy Records — on the show.

    Diddy went viral last week when he asked his social media followers if he should bring back the series.

    The global casting call for the show begins Monday across social media platforms.
