Meet the ‘Go-Big Show’ Season 2 Judges
Cody Rhodes is returning to his judge’s chair this season. The wrestler is an executive vice president of All Elite Wrestling and was in the WWE for 10 years. Rhodes comes from a wrestling family, as both his father and brother are wrestlers. He also acted as the villain Derek Sampson on Arrow. Rhodes stars on the TNT reality show Rhodes to the Top with his wife Brandi.
Joining Rhodes on the panel is actress Rosario Dawson, who’s known for her roles in films such as Rent, Sin City, and Seven Pounds. She also portrayed Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian and has appeared on the TV show Young Rock. Dawson is dating U.S. Senator Cory Booker.
Jennifer Nettles is also returning to the show this season. The country singer is part of the duo Sugarland, and has also released solo music. Nettles has also acted in projects such as the HBO series The Righteous Gemstones and the 2019 Harriet Tubman biopic Harriet. She also appeared as Roxy Hart in the musical Chicago on Broadway.
T-Pain is the newest addition to the panel, replacing DJ Khaled, who was originally set to replace Snoop Dogg. The rapper has released six studio albums and popularized the use of Auto-Tune. In 2019, he won the first season of The Masked Singer as Monster, blowing everyone away with his singing voice.
What to Expect from Season 2 of the Show
As you could probably guess from the title, Go-Big Show focuses on big acts that break the mold of the typical talent show. Contestants compete for a $100,000 prize. Production for the second season started in August in Macon, Georgia.
This year, 36 acts will compete for a chance to be named the winner. Based on the trailer, this season will feature some crazy performances, including a hilarious moment in which T-Pain has a knife thrown at him. The judges will rate the season’s acts to decide who moves on.
Season 2 of Go-Big Show will premiere on TBS this Thursday, January 6, at 9 p.m. ET.
