Vh1 launches three new shows

June 14, 2010

International entertainment channel Vh1 will air three new shows.

The fourth season of America’s Got Talent starts 14 June from Monday – Wednesday at 10:30 pm. 100 Most Shocking Moments In Music airs on 21 June while Remembering Michael Jackson airs on 25 June.

On America’s Got Talent contestants showcase their talent and hope to impress the judges, David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan, and Sharon Osbourne, to reach to the top. The grand prize winner will win $1,000,000. The show will feature talent by various people from balancing acts to even rock bands to unbelievable acts.

From the fully-functioning coffin released by Kiss to Michael Jackson’s untimely passing, pop stars have been treating fans to antics, sordid scandals, and the occasional massive freak-out for almost six decades.

100 Most Shocking Music Moments will bring the best of the eye-popping events, the channel said. The five-hour special combines artist interviews, photos and performance footage to tell the story of these controversial moments, from the assassination of John Lennon and Sinead O’Connor tearing up a photo of the Pope to Madonna’s “Sex” book and Ozzy Osbourne biting the head off of a live dove.

Vh1 will also celebrate the legacy of the artist who created the world’s biggest selling album ever Michael Jackson. The channel will relive the songs, the performances, the choreography, and the styles that still impact pop culture four decades after Michael Jackson first became a star with The Jackson 5.

Vh1 viewers are invited to share their own tributes and memories about the King Of Pop, which will be aired on TV. Some of the videos showcased will include numbers like Beat It and Black Or White.
