Queen Latifah will be heading up her own reality talent show called The Star Next Door. The Queen has teamed up with Gloria Estefan and John Rich to scout talent across the United States.
Let me tell you, this may be a show I may watch not only because all three of these judges are amazing. And before you start freaking out that this is just a copycat show stemming off of American Idol, The Voice and the X-Factor, it is. But, it is a tad different. The celebrity mentors are going to be the ones traveling to cities seeking out local performers with potential. Open auditions are not a part of the process!
The CW network will be airing the show and they are excited to show off what they have to offer. A statement from the network reads, “(The celebrity mentors will) travel to where the talent is, immersing themselves in the lives and towns of these local performers and preparing them for the chance to represent their home city on stage, live, in front of America.”
What do you think peeps? Will you give this show a shot?
