    On The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliott, thirteen aspiring young singers and rappers will tour with 3x Grammy Award-winning rapper/singer/producer/songwriter Missy Elliott, where they will live together on the road in a tour bus for 10 weeks to compete against each other for the opportunity to become the next big Hip-Hop/R&B star; the deal is completed with a recording contract from Missy Elliott, $100,000, and a mentor like no other---Missy. The series features a diverse group of singers and rappers, ranging in age from 19-29, as they transform into multi-talented entertainers, and in the process facing weekly tests that will determine who will win. While dealing with the ups-and-downs of life on the road, this select group will be challenged in a variety of ways, and with Missy's guidance, will be exposed to top music industry insiders, all under 24-hour-a-day surveillance of cameras that will chronicle their every move. Missy leads the judges panel of music industry insiders, including respected R&B singer/songwriter/producer/performer Teena Marie, Grammy Award-winning producer Dallas Austin, who has created hits with some of music's top artists, including Madonna, TLC, Pink, and most recently, Gwen Stefani; and the president of Violator Management, Mona Scott, who represents rappers Busta Rhymes & 50 Cent, and R&B singer Tweet, among others. These judges will eliminate one performer each week until only one is left standing to claim the $100,000 prize and recording contract. Missy will then help launch the career of the winner by signing him/her to her record label and releasing the winner's first single.moreless
