Jason Derulo Trades Music For Two Reality Series

Jason Derulo might be trading in his music career for reality television (at least for now). The “Don’t Wanna Go Home” singer has landed judging/mentor seats on not just one, but two reality competition series.
First up, Derulo will appear on the E! network series ‘Opening Act’ in July. Working alongside Nigel Lythgoe, Derulo will act as part of an artist development team that includes Pete Wentz, Martina McBride and Nick Cooper.
Premiering July 9, Opening Act gives aspiring talent a chance to open for top acts including Nicki Minaj, Brad Paisley and Gym Class Heroes.
Later this year, Derulo will also appear on ‘Everybody Dance Now,‘ a series similar in format to ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’ Due to air in Australia, the series will also feature Kelly Rowland as a judge.
While his turn to reality television is news, Jason Derulo vowed to take a break from music last year. In discussing his last album, “Future History,” Derulo expressed plans to turn to movies.
“After this album, I will dive full throttle into movies for a while. I will ultimately take a break from music,” said Derulo.
Watch out for Jason Derulo when ‘Opening Act’ premieres Monday, July 9 at 10 pm on E!
