TV show description:
In each episode of this music competition series, four music industry superstars — Gloria Estefan, John Rich, Nelly, and Joe Jonas — drop in on the lives of four up-and-coming local musicians.
The show moves from city to city: Orlando, Baltimore, New York, Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles. In each town, the contestants are the local musical heroes with a huge following of devoted regional fans, as well as a formidable social media presence. Some have weekly residencies at the hottest clubs; others have performed in the opening slot at stadium-sized concerts.
These aspiring stars are not plucked from obscurity; they are proven artists on the brink of success. They just need a little help making the leap from opening act to headliner.
Over the course of 72 hours, each superstar grooms one contestant, essentially taking over their lives. It’s one thing to work with a musical icon in the studio, it’s another thing to have him or her tagging along to your day job, eating every meal with you, and hanging with you at your local karaoke dive bar.
