In every city the show visits, each contestant will be paired up with a celebrity mentor, who not only grooms them for the biggest performance of their career, but also, moves in with them for three days to completely immerse themselves into the contestants daily lives, and have a little fun while they are at it. One winner will be chosen in each city to move on to the semi-finals where the winning contestant will get the ultimate prize for any artist, a recording contract with Atlantic Records.
