Audience members are needed at the Paramount Theater for a taping of reality TV show "The Next" featuring Gloria Estefan, John Rich, Nelly and Joe Jonas on July 25.
Audience members will be by application and on first-come, first serve basis on the day of taping, according to Paramount officials. To apply, go online to Gotham Casting.
Over the course of 72 hours, each superstar will groom one contestant — while taking over their lives. After that, the four newly groomed artists will go head-to-head at a well-known local venue. The audience will be filled with friends and family, as well as hundreds of local music fans, according to show's producers. One winner will be chosen and that contestant will move on to represent their city in the semi-finals. Then it’s on to the next city and four more contestants.
After six episodes in six different cities including Orlando, Baltimore, New York, Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles, each of the local winners and the fan favorite will battle it out on stage over the course of the final episodes until only one contestant remains — the vocalist left standing at the end will be rewarded a recording contract with Atlantic Records.
The show, produced by Dave Broome ("The Biggest Loser"), Queen Latifa and Shakim Compere, will debut on the Aug. 16 on the CW-11 at 9 p.m.
