"Hip-hop is where Latifah and I came from, so it's great to be able to produce a television show that is derived from our roots," Compere said in a statement. "The show is going to be a lot of fun."

Each week, the pint-sized artists will be receiving guidance from A-listers like Ludacris, Usher, T.I. and Da Brat.
