Later this summer, the CW will premiere a music competition series.
"The Next" will spotlight mentors who travel the country in search of an undiscovered star.
These mentors go into the daily lives of these prospects and prepare them for the live TV sing-offs.
This morning Nelly joined us in studio to tell us about the show and his experience as a mentor.
"The Next" was previously known as "The Star Next Door." Queen Latifah is an executive producer.
A premiere date and time will be announced soon.
You can meet Nelly from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Monday at Cricket Wirless at Brickyard Mall, 2880 N. Narragansett Ave.
