Joe Jonas: “The Next” Premiere Photos

The premiere of CW’s “The Next” is only a few weeks away!

The show features Joe Jonas, Gloria Estefan, Nelly, and John Rich and filming is currently underway! The mentors will travel to six cities – Orlando, Baltimore, New York, Chicago, Dallas and Los Angele where they will immerse themselves in the lives of local up-and-coming musicians on the brink of stardom, to prepare them for the performances of their lives and the chance to win a recording contract with Atlantic Records. The show just finished up in Chicago and will be heading to the final cities soon!

In the premiere episode, Gloria surprises her contestant, Cori, at a boat party, and teaches her how to deal with her stage fright. Joe brings Tayler out of her comfort zone by having her perform material outside her normal musical repertoire. Meanwhile, Nelly puts Itzy on the spot, making her perform in front of her customers at work. And John gets comfortable in Michael’s personal space, all while giving him the tools he’ll need for an unforgettable performance – cowboy boots included.

Be sure to tune into the premiere of “The Next” on Thursday, August 16 at 9PM on the CW.
