Janet Jackson is set to star in a new MTV reality show.
The 'Together Again' singer will mentor a group of aspiring singers and dancers in the as-yet-untitled project, which will be filmed before Janet starts her world tour later this year.
A producer for the show said: "It's really about finding who's the next Janet Jackson or Justin Timberlake or Usher. And we'll find it from a pool of people who you wouldn't typically find it from. We'll go to YMCAs, church groups, local community centres and try to cast the show."
It has also been reported the winner of the show may be given the chance to appear in Janet's world tour, which starts in Vancouver, Canada, on September 10.
Janet recently revealed she would love her brothers to reform the Jackson 5, but is unsure whether she would join them on their rumoured Las Vegas residency.
She said: "This is the first I've heard that. I would love for my brothers to get together."
Janet's brother Jermaine has previously spoken of his wish to reform the band, saying: "It could be sometime in 2008. Michael will be involved. We feel we have to do it one more time. We owe that to the fans and to the public."
