Country music really is going mainstream after all, with another reality show adding in a country music star for its panel. Texan superstar Miranda Lambert will serve as a celebrity judge on the eleventh season of Project Runway, show producers have announced. The new season returns with a twist that throws 16 eager designers into a panic when they discover they will be participating in the series’ first-ever TEAMS EDITION, premiering Thursday, January 24, at 9pm ET/PT.
This season, the controversial “team challenges” are taken to a whole new level when the designers must work together for every challenge while ensuring their own garments stand out on the runway to host and judge Heidi Klum, Marie Claire’s Fashion Director Nina Garcia and featured judge, award-winning fashion designer Zac Posen.
Miranda is one of many A-list stars appearing on the season, which includes appearances by Bette Midler, Susan Saradon, John Legend, Joan and Melissa Rivers, Emmy Rossum, Kristin Davis, and Jordana Brewster. Make sure you tune-in to the season premiere on January 24th, 2013!
