Cable is taking ova!!

With ratings for American Idol dropping, E! is attempting to jump on the bandwagon fill the singing competition void with a show of their very own!

The network just announced that they have picked up Opening Act: a talent competition reality show from American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance executive producer Nigel Lythgoe.

The show comes fully-equipt with judges — Mary J. Blige, music producer/songwriter Antonina Armato, and Lythgoe himself — AND a very unique prize: to go on tour with Nicki Minaj, Rod Stewart, LMFAO, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Jason Mraz or Gym Class Heroes as their opening act.

That is WAY better than money$!

Another odd thing about Opening Actthere are NO auditions.

Nigel and his peeps will find contestants on the internet, then fly them to El Lay for some training and an amazing one-time performance.

This actually sounds like it could be worth watching! Good movie E!!

    Oh goody….so you take a real deserving band and put them on a shitty tour with Gym Class Heroes? sounds pretty lame.

    Ratings are falling because there are TOO MANY shows with the same theme. So let's make another one? Give me a break. The wear everything out. Same shit from Hollywood. No imagination. Let's just COPY COPY COPY. Like all the dumb ass reality shows.
