Nelly Brings The CW’s The Next To Baltimore
Just as countless aspiring musicians are constantly vying for stardom, music talent competitions are currently crowding the airwaves attempting to grab American Idol’s declining audience. Soon, one of them will be The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep on The CW. Right now, the show is crisscrossing the country to film episodes to air in the fall, with a stop in Baltimore this week. On Tuesday night, the show will be taping at the Hippodrome. And on Tuesday morning, one of The Next‘s celebrity judges, multi-platinum rapper Nelly, will be appearing at a meet-and-greet where tickets for the taping will be given away.
From 9 to 11a.m. this Tuesday, July 17th, the Nelly meet-and-greet will be held at the Cricket Wireless location at 9 Eutaw Street, where attendees will have a chance to win tickets for the taping that evening at the Hippodrome. The Hippodrome audience will vote live to choose a contestant to send to the show’s finals in Los Angeles. The Next airs on The CW network this fall, with celebrity mentors Nelly, Joe Jonas, Gloria Estefan and John Rich.
