Singer Fergie has been confirmed to be a mentor on new Canadian talent show The Launch.
The 42-year-old singer will be joining OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder on Scott Borchetta's talent contest,
according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fergie and Tedder – who has previously written songs for the likes of Adele, Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran and Jennifer
Lopez among others – will assist the coaches on the new six- part talent show which sees musicians battle to create the next hit single.
Co-produced in Toronto with Canada's Bell Media, the show is in talks to land an international co-production partner and
a Canadian singer will be announced as the third mentor who joins Fergie and Tedder.
"The Launch" is due to begin shooting this summer in Toronto.
