Tiesto Surprises Contestants Of 'Your Shot' DJ Competition [VIDEO]

The third episode of Tiësto's 10-part Vevo web series "Your Shot" has just hit the internet. The American Idol-style competition for producer/DJs was originally started by Steve Pillemer in Australia back in 2010. And now, thanks to Tiësto and 7 Up, 'Your Shot' is giving aspiring DJs in the US an opportunity to train with the best and compete for the chance to make their dreams come true. The first two episodes launched the first week of August, and now we are presented with the third episode featuring an exciting surprise from Tiësto himself...

In this episode, we get to see the 30 chosen competitors start their intensive training at the 'Your Shot' DJ academy. These passionate individuals already had to set themselves apart from the thousands that auditioned, but now it's time to watch these aspiring EDM artists push themselves to their limit to prove they have what it takes to become America's next great DJ.

The winner of the 'Your Shot' competition will play a coveted slot at Ultra Music Festival and will also share the stage with Tiësto in one of the EMD capitols of the world - Las Vegas.

Of course, they couldn't start this journey without the proper inspiration or as one contestant described it a "hell of an introduction."

"I mean, I just... I don't have words to express how crazy awesome that was..." - contestant
