Check out the promo for Rock the Cradle below.

More Info: Each week, these talented progeny of some of the most famous recording artists of all time will rehearse with accomplished producers, songwriters and choreographers before performing ‘live’ in front of a studio audience and an expert panel of judges. Ultimately, the fate of these second generation musical artists will be in the hands of the viewers at home, who will vote to determine which offspring has what it takes to emerge from their parent’s shadow, claim a lucrative recording contract and declare their independence.

At some point in everyone’s life, they make the decision whether or not to follow in their parent’s footsteps, but what would you do if your parent was one of the most famous recording artists of all time? These second generation musicians will finally have their chance to become a star. Despite many of them having issues and conflicted relationships, their celebrity parents will try to prepare and guide them through the process as they perform for a panel of judges and live audience each week. In the end, only one “offspring” will emerge victorious from their parents’ shadow.
