No surprise here - yet another singing competition show is about to premiere on a television near you (if you choose to tune in of course) this one is titled 'Opening Act' and Jason Aldean is one of a handful of stars that has chosen to be a part of it. The show will premiere on the E! network on July 9th.

If the title didn't already give it away, the singing hopefuls will be competing to be the opening act for big time music tours. Besides Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley is the only other country artist looking for an opening act via the new reality TV show. Some of the others are Rod Stewart, Mary J. Blige,  LMFAO, and Nicki Minaj.

I like the fact that they are going for a wide variety of artists, from country to R&B, to classic rock and pop, it will help the show appeal to a larger demographic. Another key difference in this new show is they will be scouring the internet to find its contestants instead of holding massive casting calls.

Now that is something I really like. There is so much talent out there and even with all these singing competition shows right now, there have got to be some incredible singers that don't have the time or the money to drive to the nearest audition and stand in line for a day or two. Using only the internet to find talent gives just about anyone a shot at being a part of the show.

So if you think you have what it takes to be an opening act, you better start working on your video and get it up on YouTube!
