E! has announced the addition of “Opening Act” to its lineup and the show stars Mary J. Blige! On the new talent competition show, headlined by “American Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, Mary J. Blige and producer Antonina Armato, the three will comb the Internet and give talented amateurs the chance to open for an A-list music star.
It sounds like this could be a fun show as they have lined up some heavyweights. Music acts that have signed on to let an aspiring musician open for one show on their current tour are Nicki Minaj, Rod Stewart, LMFAO, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Jason Mraz and Gym Class Heroes.
The amateurs will get the news via host Olivia Lee and will be brought to Hollywood for an extreme ‘performance boot camp’ and intense mentoring sessions with top industry heavyweights.
“Opening Act” premieres July 9.
