WOULD-BE buskers are wanted to take part in a competition to crown the capital's best musical talent.
Musicians or singers aged 16 to 25 are invited to compete for a year's licence to busk on the London Underground.
The winner will also receive studio time, live gigs at venues across London and musical instruments.
It is part of Rhythm of London, a campaign organised by Mayor of London Boris Johnson as part of his drive to increase musical opportunities and education for young people.
Mr Johnson said: "As the View so purposely said on their album Hats off to the Buskers, it is high time we recognised how marvellous our buskers truly are.
"I'm searching for the finest act to join the myriad of talented musicians on the Underground.
"This is a brilliant opportunity for young people from Bexley to get their music heard and to practise performing live."
To enter the competition entrants have to upload a video clip of themselves performing on the 'Rhythm of London' You Tube page, youtube.com/group/
