Mary J. Blige To Star On E! Music Reality Series "Opening Act"

Mary J. Blige will help amateurs get a shot at the big leagues.

Mary J. Blige has been tapped to be a judge on E!’s upcoming music reality competition Opening Act.

According to Deadline, MJB joins American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe and Rock Mafia’s Antonina Armato for the show, where the trio will scour the Internet looking for unmined talent.

The goal is to give amateurs the opportunity to open for major acts on tour. So far, artists who have agreed to participate include Nicki Minaj, LMFAO, Gym Class Heroes and more.

TV personality Olivia Lee will break the news to unsuspecting bands or solo acts, who will be brought to Los Angeles for “performance boot camp” and mentoring sessions with industry executives.

Opening Act is set to debut on July 9th.
