JANET JACKSON is getting her own reality show. THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports the singer has partnered with MTV to develop a music competition series in which she will serve as mentor for a group of aspiring singers and dancers.
"It's really about finding who's the next JANET JACKSON or JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE or USHER," executive producer DAVE BROOME said. "And we'll find it from a pool of people whom you wouldn't typically find it from. We'll go to YMCAs, church groups and local community centers and try to cast the show."
The untitled project has already begun casting and will be filmed as JACKSON prepares for her world tour, which launches on SEPTEMBER 10th. The grand prize has yet to be determined.
The show will mark the first project JACKSON and MTV have collaborated on since the pop singer's infamous SUPER BOWL halftime show "wardrobe malfunction."
