We already have American Idol, The Voice, The X Factor and The Sing Off, now it looks like the CW will be entering the singing competition show arena with The star Next Door.

Slated to debut this summer, The Star Next Door will differentiate itself from its predecessors by sending the judges out to find contestants instead of holding cattle call style auditions.  In a release from the CW,

(The celebrity mentors will) travel to where the talent is, immersing themselves in the lives and towns of these local performers and preparing them for the chance to represent their home city on stage, live, in front of America." (contactmusic.com)

The show's executive producer is Queen Latifah and she's enlisted Gloria Estefan and John Rich to scout out the nation for budding talent.

Do you think there is room for this show?  Will it survive beyond one season?
