New singer competition coming in 2012!
A new Singing show is holding tryouts for singers nationwide. The new televised singing competition is called “The Star Next Door”. The new show is hoping to find talented vocal artists looking for their big break. The competition will also feature mentors that will help the singers get prepared to ‘knock ’em dead’ on national television.
Queen Latifah’s new show is planning a summer 2012 launch and the CW has already ordered 10 episodes from the series. This singing competition doesn’t quite follow in the footsteps of American Idol or the other newly launched singer reality competitions like X Factor and The Voice. “The Star Next Door” will focus on exactly that…. what is next door to the stars home. Rather than flying the singers into Hollywood to be mentored, the mentors will fly over to the singers home. The mentors will meet the vocalists and explore their surroundings and their home towns. They will immerse themselves in local culture.
Two mentors for the new show have already been announced. “The Star Next Door” will have Gloria Estefan and John Rich engaged as 2 of the mentors. The show is still in talks with others that they will also use as mentors, however the names of the other stars has not yet been announced.
Queen Latifah and the casting directors for “Star Next Door” are planning a nationwide search for singers. They have announced that they will be coming to New York, Los Angeles, Orlando and Chicago very soon and more cities may be announced as the nationwide search for talent continues. At this time the show is accepting applications from singers through email. Singers must send a link as well as their information to the email address provided for consideration to be on the show and perform on national television.
To apply to be on the show or to request more application or casting call information, please send links to you performing (live and/or in studio) and your name, age, contact info, the city and state to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Let producers know why you are such a great undiscovered talent and why you need this big break so much.
Are you the next shining star? Are you a very talented singer who has had a hard time getting discovered? Do you desperately need that big break? If so, apply to be on “The Star Next Door” and maybe Queen Latifah will give you that big break you have been dreaming of.
