Joe Jonas, Nelly sign on to new CW singing competition

The network is launching its own singing show.

The CW is putting their all into making a big splash in the singing-competition genre — after all, they just hired one of the Jonas Brothers as a mentor.

On Monday, the network announced that Joe Jonas and Nelly are going to be joining Gloria Estefan and John Rich on “The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep.” The show was first known as “The Star Next Door” earlier this year, but the premise remains unchanged — the four artists travel the country and become involved in their artists’ everyday lives. Eventually, this will culminate into the same sort of live singing show that we already have all across pretty much every other network, but there is no word at the moment as to how that will work.

“The Next” does not currently have a premiere date, but it is expected to launch at some point later this summer — and before “The Voice” and “The X Factor” return to take a big piece out of the singing-show pie.

Does the presence of Joe actually make you interested in this show?
