The 2021 version of Popstars will be judged by Kimbra, Zed frontman Nathan King and singer/producer Vince Harder, and aired on TVNZ.

The format for Popstars was created all the way back in 1999, and versions of it were filmed in 40 different countries across the world.

It was even credited with being the inspiration for the 'Idol' franchise, which continues to this day.

Prize money for the winner of the 2021 season in New Zealand has been set at $100,000.

Individuals, duos and groups are all able to apply, but entrants must be over 16, and must be available to film this year between February and May.
