Joe Jonas + Nelly Board "The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep"

Rapper Nelly and singer Joe Jonas have boarded the Queen Latifah-produced reality show The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep, which was formerly titled The Star Next Door. Nelly and JJ will serve as the final two celebrity mentors. The series premiere date and time will be announced at a later date.
The show will go on a nationwide search for undiscovered artists on the verge of stardom. So it's another reality talent show...as if we didn't have enough of those already. Sorry, guys! Not trying to be a Debbie Downer or anything, but the market is saturated.
However, there is a bit of a twist and a spin. In this new take on the music competition genre, Jonas and Nelly join previously hired pop legend Gloria Estefan, and country star John Rich, who 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.
Okay, we take it back. The market may be saturated, but this is not just another reality competition.
Does this sound like a show you will watch?
