Newark, New Jersey native, rapper and actress, Queen Latifah is looking to give back. And in the best way she knows how: finding New Jersey’s, oops! I mean America’s next big star. The Star Next Door will be an opportunity unlike the ones American Idol and others offer. Queen Latifah, pop legend Gloria Estefan and country star John Rich will be scouting raw talent on the artists playing field: their own home towns. From there they mentor the artist and prepare them for the performance of a lifetime. The Show is scheduled to appear this summer on the CW.
