The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliot approaches
The debut date of “The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliot” is approaching and US TV network UPN is now featuring a special section of their online website devoted to the new show.
As MadonnaTribe readers know the first episode of the show – as we revealed a few weeks ago – will air on Wednesday, January 5 2005 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
The new reality show sees 13 aspiring performers that will travel and live together on the road in a tour bus and compete against each other for $100,000 and the opportunity to become music’s next big sensation.
Missy Elliott herself will lead the panel of music industry judges, including award winning producer Dallas Austin, who worked with Madonna on the Bedtime Stories album and co-wrote “Secret“, Mona Scott and Teena Marie.
Missy will then help launching the winner’s career with a contract to her label and a producing a first single.
In a promo clip for the show Madonna gives advice to the contestants and says: “Your job is to inspire people and if you can hold on to that then things won’t get boring“.
