The show was hosted by Ryan Devlin, and there was a panel of four judges composed of The Go-Go's lead vocalist Belinda Carlisle, choreographer Jamie King, celebrity fashion stylist June Ambrose, and entertainment attorney/personal manager Larry Rudolph, who was also one of the executive producers. Brian Friedman substituted for an absent King in the fourth week.
Scoring and elimination:
Judges rated performances each week, and the highest-scoring contestant earned immunity from elimination for the following week. Elimination was determined by popular vote via toll-free telephone calls and text messaging. No immunity was granted for week five's performances, so all three finalists were subject to the popular vote and elimination to determine the winner.
The following contestants were featured:
Son of Bobby Brown
Daughter of MC Hammer
Daughter of The Doobie Brothers lead singer Tom Johnston
Daughter of Olivia Newton-John
Son of singer Kenny Loggins
Daughter of Eddie Money
Jesse Blaze Snider
Son of Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider
Lil B. Sure!
Son of Al B. Sure!
Daughter of Joe Walsh
The following list is presented in the order in which the contestants performed.
