30 Seconds to Fame is a fast-paced competitive talent show hosted by Craig J. Jackson. Each half-hour episode will pit approximately 24 acts of diverse talents in 2 rounds of competition. Each round will allow acts up to 30 seconds in which to display their talent for the audience. After the first round, the audience will decide which 3 acts advance to the second round. Following the second round, the audience will vote for the winner of the $25,000 weekly prize.
