CMT’s Next Superstar Reality Show

Written by: On February - 10 - 2011

Real World meets American Idol in CMT’s new talent competition: CMT’s Next Superstar.

American Idol and Dancing With The Stars executives team up to bring a reality-show format to a talent competition in CMT’s upcoming series “CMT’s Next Superstar“. The series will feature ten episodes in which contestants will live together and compete against each other in industry tasks such as video production, songwriting, performances, interviews and more. The series will air beginning this April so stay tuned!

One of the reasons this show stands out from the rest is that it’s the only show where the contestants take an active role in deciding who’s in the band,” noted executive producer, Simon Lythgoe. “Whereas contestants must sing in different genres on other shows, this is all about Country music. Our contestants will turn some world renowned songs from other genres like Pop or Motown, pour their soul into it and make it Country.

Past reality/talent competitions on CMT have brought us stars like Miranda Lambert and Steel Magnolia… let’s see what this one can fish out!

    I think this new format for CMT’s Next Superstar will be interesting to watch. And with Sixwire as the house band for the contestants, it will be well worth tuning in each week just to hear them play! They are fantastic musicians!
