Mary J. Blige and Nicki Minaj have reportedly signed up to star in a new reality show.
The 24/7 singer will star in E!'s Opening Act, a talent contest similar to American Idol or X Factor, in which Mary, along with Nigel Lythgoe and Rock Mafia maestro Ms. Armato, will search for a talented musician online who can win the chance to open for an artist of Mary's caliber.
Although details for the contest are still to be confirmed, Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj has been pipped as one of the huge artists whom the lucky winner will get to support on one of their shows.
Opening Act airs on E! on July 9.
What do you think of the concept? Is Mary the right choice for the role?
