Shania Twain joins Scott Borchetta's new singing competition series
She'll appear opposite Fergie and Ryan Tedder on 'The Launch'
Shania Twain is bringing more star power to the upcoming Canadian singing competition show The Launch.
Just days ahead of the release of her new album, Now, Twain has signed onto the CTV reality series opposite previously confirmed mentors Fergie and OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder. The Launch, set to debut in 2018, is a six-part show created and co-judged by Scott Borchetta (American Idol) that centers on a group of unsigned musicians competing to create the next chart-topping hit in two days.
“We are honored to welcome this stellar, category-defying, homegrown talent on board The Launch,” Bell Media president Randy Lennox, a co-producer on the series, said in a statement. Per The Hollywood Reporter, it’s expected that The Launch will team with a major international partner.
Twain recently mentored on The Voice and has also guest-judged on American Idol in the past. Her album Now is set to debut Sept; 29; its lead single, “Life’s About to Get Good,” was released in June to strong reviews.
And if that’s not enough Twain action for you, prepare yourselves: The Grammy winner is guest-starring on Wednesday night’s episode of Broad City.
