MTV "Rock the Cradle": Cast of Rockstar Offspring

MTV's Rock the CradleScrew American Idol and Making the Band cinderella stories.  Wouldn't we all like to watch a show about the rich 'n' famous spawn of rockstars getting a chance to become...er...more rich and famous?

MTV's "Rock The Cradle" knows what we're talkin about.  Nine children of 9 different musician-stars will compete in American Idol-like fashion for the Rock the Cradle crown.  (While the concept annoys me, I suppose you can't blame any musician for jumping on a chance to launch a career.  And at least it's better TV than MTV's That's Amore.)  The show is being produced jointly by MTV and by Fremantle Media, which is responsible for American Idol...hence the deja vu you might be experiencing.

Introducing the Rock the Cradle Cast:

My next question is, will the cast only be allowed to sing songs by their moms and dads?  Or disallowed?  You'd think Lucy Walsh would be sick of Hotel California by now.  "Oh dad, please, don't sing THAT song again..."  Will there be a parent-child duet opportunity?  Leave it to MTV to fully milk that celebrity nector...  I've got dibs on Jesse Snider to be the Rock the Cradle winner, just 'cause he's related to Dee Snider. 

Be sure to tune in to confirm what we all know -- it's a lot easier to get fame when you've already got some to work with.  Rock The Cradle premieres on April 3rd on MTV.  Pop some kettle corn, whip out your favorite 80s album from the star list, and enjoy.  2 Legit 2 Quit, baby.

I think Crosby Loggins has a good shot. He has been opening for Joe Bonamassa in the US and Europe. He's a great song writer and has a great down to earth personality. Check out his myspace and website.

We shall see,

Sherry: Will do. Actually, I think someone else told me something positive about Crosby also...

Crosby will win. Check out classic interview with him on soulsandsounds.com

I'm actually working with MTV to promote the show. It's nice to see MTV going back to their roots and developing new music programming. Who do you guys think will stand out? I've been hearing a lot of interest toward Chloe and Jesse; although Crosby has the real experience and established fan base to maybe get ahead. What do you guys think?

Rock the Cradle Premieres on Thursday, April 3rd 10/9c

Jesse, Jesse, Lucy and Crosby....great job!

However....

WHO DOESN’T HAVE THE BEAT???

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE…..get Belinda Carlisle off the show ‘Rock the Cradle’ as a judge. She’s a travesty!

Giving Jesse Synder a 5.0 for an amazing performance, and then that Chloe Lattanzi’s horrid performance a 10.0. Belinda is lost!

She was a GO GO…so please, help her GO GO off the show!

Who do you think stands out as the one that's going to make it?
Hopefully as the show progresses we'll see the real performers emerge as they all seemed a tad nervous. I am actually helping out with the show, so I have been listening to the contestants on Myspace and other sites, and it's cool to see what their music is like outside the show. It kind of gives you a better idea of the music talent they're bringing with them, and it will be cool to see where they go. Trying to escape your parent’s shadows and establish your own identity must be tough and definitely a double-edged sword if you think about it. I thought they all did a pretty good job on Thurs. and I guess we’ll see what everyone else thinks when we find out who’s off the show next. Rock on!
