Unsigned bands are being given the chance to air their performance during the Super Bowl –- one of the most watched television events in America.

A competition sponsored by Doritos gives new bands the chance to submit their music videos online.

To enter the competition, artists must submit a video of themselves performing their original song along with an audio file by November 25 to

Bands will be judged by a panel that includes William of Black Eyed Peas and Interscope Geffen A&M Records executives.

In addition to having their video aired at the Super Bowl, the winning act will be offered a record deal with Interscope Geffen A&M Records.

The 10 semi-finalists will be announced in December, and the public will vote online to determine three finalists.

The three finalists will each be awarded $10,000 and a trip to Phoenix, Arizona to attend the Doritos Super Bowl party. The finalist — also voted on by the public — will win the coveted Super Bowl slot.
