Joe chatted with KIIS FM this morning to announce some exciting news. He’s joined the CW’s new reality show “The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep” as a celebrity mentor!
Joe joins rapper Nelly, Gloria Stefan and John Rich as mentors in this new take on the music competition genre. The mentors 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.
No release date has been announced yet. Joe’s definitely excited. He tweeted, “I’m excited!! #joejtheNext” and his brother Nick also congratulated him saying, “@joejonas so excited for you bro… #joejthenext.”
Joe told Ryan, “The series is a music talent show, I’m really excited about it…I’m going to be moving in with someone. The judges will be going to different cities in the states. There will be four people auditioning in each city and these artists are going to be either people that had a chance in the past, maybe they possibly got dropped from a record label. Also there will be people that are local stars or local celebrities.”
”I’m going to be living with them for 72 hours, I’m going to be spending time with their families, learning about them, say they flip burgers, I’m going to be flipping burgers with them, just so that its really hands-on so that I can really get to know this artist so that we can work together for this audition. It’s going to be a lot of fun I am really looking forward to it.”
Are you excited to see Joe be a mentor on “The Next”?
