Mentors Joe Jonas, Gloria Estefan, Nelly and John Rich from the CW’s “The Next” pose for a photo before a live taping on August 7, 2012 in Dallas, Texas (below). “The Next” has each star mentoring local up-and-coming musicians — while living with them in their homes for 72 hours. Episodes are being shot in Orlando, Baltimore, New York, Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles.
“The Next” premieres this Thursday (August 16) at 9/8 CT.
How do you think “The Next” will compare to America’s Got Talent, American Idol, The Voice and X Factor?
