Mary J. Blige Lands Reality TV Show On E!
Singer will join cast of 'Opening Act' talent competition show
Mary J. Blige will be the next celeb to cash in on America's infatuation with over-produced talent shows.
The Queen of Hip Hop R&B will be joining the cast of the E! Channel's "Opening Act" where she and two other industry move makers will scour the internet looking for the next big star to open for a big name act.
Contestants will be competing for an opening spot on tours headlined by Nicki Minaj, Rod Stewart, LMFAO, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Jason Mraz and Gym Class Heroes.
Once selected, they will be addressed with the good news by TV personality Olivia Lee (“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno”). After that they will be whisked away to Hollywood for an extreme “performance boot camp,” intense mentoring sessions with top industry heavyweights, leading to their one-night-only performance opening a major concert.
Opening act debuts this summer on July 9.
