There’s another talent show coming to TV. There has never been a greater time for those who are looking to become the next superstar! Think about it, first there was “American Idol,” then “America Has Talent,” “X Factor” and “The Voice.” Now The CW network is getting in on the action by adding a new talent competition vehicle with “Queen Latifah’s Star Next Door.”

Queen Latifah will executive produce the series, which will also feature Gloria Estefan. They plan to travel across the country looking for the best and brightest to compete and represent their hometowns when they face-off in Hollywood.

If you are truly talented, I mean truly talented, there is no excuse for you not to make it big this year. So get in the mirror…or the shower and sing your heart out. Then get out and audition for one of these shows and get the superstardom you have been wishing for your entire life. The world is waiting on you! So what are you waiting on?

Get your March on

If there was ever a month to use your planner, March is the month. There’s a little something for nearly every taste in music. Find your groove and get out of the house.

Here’s the latest on what’s happening…

Trey Songz at the Landers Center

You love hits such as “The Neighbors Know my Name” and “Can’t Be Friends.” Now the Landers Center in Southaven will be hot as Trey Songz comes to town this weekend Saturday (March 10). Big Sean is on the show as well, so get your tickets right now! Tickets are available at the Landers Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com.

Marvin Sapp makes it to Memphis

With his hit songs “Never would have Made It” and “The Best in Me,” Marvin Sapp has broken records in the music industry that are unheard of in popular culture. He is now making his way to the Mid-South to perform at New Salem Missionary Baptist Church at 2237 South Parkway East on Sunday (March 11). All Tickets are $20. Call 901-452-7265 for more details.

Tribute to Motown

Motown Records legends The Contours present a Tribute to Motown! Combine a high-energy show jam-packed with perfect harmonies, smooth choreography – plus the timeless grooves of Motown – and you have a night that promises to take you “higher and higher.” The Contours will perform timeless hits from great artists such as The Temptations, The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, and the Miracles. Consider it “signed, sealed, delivered” this Saturday (March 10). Tickets are on sale at the Cannon Center box office.

Gospel Super Fest

Gospel greats Vanessa Bell Armstrong and Earnest Pugh will join David and Tamela Mann, Tyrese and host Vivica A. Fox for Gospel Superfest at the Temple of Deliverance Church of God In Christ located at 369 G.E. Patterson Avenue on March 23. Bishop Paul S. Morton Sr. will be honored.

Other performers include Donte Everhart, Rizen, Darrel Petties and more. Tickets are $10 in advance and $20 the day of the show and are on sale through all Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com. For more information, visit www.gospelsuperfest.com.

Legends of Hip Hop II

Salt & Pepa rocked the stage last year and now the Legends of Hip Hop Tour is back with a new slate of Old School Hip Hop Stars! Get ready for Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Tone Loc, Naughty By Nature and the Showboyz.

I’m actually looking forward to the Showboyz. You’d have to come from the North Pole to not know the impact this group had on Memphis culture. Their hit song, “Drag Rap,” or otherwise known in Memphis as “Triggerman,” is the official Gangster walking song. You do know that there will be a mass Gangster Walk going on at this show right?

Tickets are on sale now at all Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com. See ya there!
