Apparently the winner of Cover Me Canada will need to be Hangin’ Tough.
Jordan Knight of New Kids on the Block has been confirmed as one of the judges on Cover Me Canada, which makes its debut Sept. 18 on CBC.
Knight will be joined on the judging panel by R&B singer Deborah Cox and music-industry executive Ron Fair.
Hosted by Nicole Appleton, formerly of All Saints, Cover Me Canada will see Canadian musical acts competing against each other as they perform their own versions of well-known Canadian songs.
Knight, of course, is the lead singer in the most successful boy band of all time. New Kids on the Block have sold more than 70 million albums worldwide.
Cox has had 10 No. 1 hits on Billboard’s dance chart, while Fair discovered Christina Aguilera and put Fergie in the Black Eyed Peas.

Time and time again Donnie Wahlberg has proven he is a man of many talents. While on a break from shooting scenes from the CBS hit, Blue Bloods on Friday, August 26th, 2011 in New York City, New York, Donnie was spotted shooting some hoops while still in his detective uniform.
After a quick game, the 42-year-old hunk went back to work and shot a scene in from of an NYPD vehicle.
It was announced this week that Donnie and his fellow famous brother Mark Wahlberg are to open up a burger joint they will call, Wahlburgers in Boston’s Hingham Shipyard. Also joining them in the venture is their brother Paul, a chef who owns Italian hot spot Alma Nove located directly across the street from where Wahlburgers will open up.
Guess who is already planning a trip up to Boston for the opening?

One of my favourite New Kids on the Block, Donnie Wahlberg, was seen shooting some hoops today on the set of his new show Blue Bloods.
I love that Donnie has become such a successful actor and that his acting persona is so different than his onstage persona. I went to see the NKOTBSB concert this summer and I have to say it was amazing!
Donnie definitely still has it!
Mark and Donnie Wahlberg -- along with their chef brother, Paul -- are reportedly opening a hamburger restaurant in Hingham, Mass. According to the Boston Herald, the trio has finally secured the name Wahlburgers, which had previously been trademarked.
"It just works," Ed St. Croix, the Wahlbergs' business partner, told the Herald. "It's a good sounding brand we could put out the product with, a great name people could relate to."
St. Croix said the restaurant's ownership approached Tom Wahl's, a Rochester, NY-based chain of burger joints, after they discovered it sold a product called the "Wahlburger."
Now the Wahlburgers' group has secured "full spectrum" use of the name, according to St. Croix. "It worked out well for both sides," he said.
Wahlburgers is scheduled to open soon at the Hingham Shipyard across from the brothers' Italian restaurant Alma Nove. The Herald reports that the group is also planning to open a pizza joint next spring.

Joey McIntyre Guest Stars
Donnie Wahlberg has been filming his CBS series Blue Bloods on the streets of New York City for more than a year now and, no matter how many fans show up to the set each day, he is still more than happy to talk to them all!
Dawn and Vicky (who are featured in the photos above and below) met Donnie Wahlberg on the set of Blue Bloods a couple days ago where, true to form, he was more than happy to spend some time with them and take photos!
One of our Twitter followers, @Jsurvivor_nyc, also just sent us this cute photo she took with Donnie a couple of weeks ago, proving Donnie loves to ham it up with his fans (and it’s no wonder he was in such a good mood, it was his birthday!)
Finally, here’s a video one of our readers, Billy, made of Donnie greeting fans on the set a couple of weeks ago. We tweeted the video recently but wanted to post it again because it really shows how much time Donnie takes with his fans!
Don’t forget to check our Daily Filming Locations to find out where Donnie is filming next!

daughter Kira, born May 31
Griffin McIntyre, 3, has one tiny gripe about his new sister Kira. "He wants her to move into his room" says dad Joey McIntyre, 38. But after two boys (They also have Rhys, 20 months), the new kids on the block singer and wife Barret, 32, couldn't wait to go girlie. "There's a lot of pink," says Joey. "We dressed it up."
"I don't know what Griffin loves more, tools or perform on a stage," says Joey proudly. Another favorite's hobby? We play 'Where's daddy?' with the map," says Barret so Griffin can track his dad when he's out on tour.
RHY'S ROOM( Photos thanks to @JessicaNKOTB on twitter)
The McIntyre's little child is the daredevil of the family. "Rhys is rough-and-tumble," says Joey. "He loves to get into things." But when he's ready to sit still in his room "he loves that chair."
CBS sure likes their New Kids ( …and we don’t blame them).
