Rock the Cradle is an MTV reality show in which the offspring of R&B, pop, and rock stars from the 1980s and 1990s vie in a six-week singing competition.[1] The show debuted on Thursday, April 3, 2008.

Personnel[edit]

The show was hosted by Ryan Devlin, and there was a panel of four judges composed of The Go-Go's lead vocalist Belinda Carlisle, choreographer Jamie King, celebrity fashion stylist June Ambrose, and entertainment attorney/personal manager Larry Rudolph, who was also one of the executive producers. Brian Friedman substituted for an absent King in the fourth week.

Scoring and elimination[edit]

Judges rated performances each week, and the highest-scoring contestant earned immunity from elimination for the following week. Elimination was determined by popular vote via toll-free telephone calls and text messaging. No immunity was granted for week five's performances, so all three finalists were subject to the popular vote and elimination to determine the winner.

Contestants[edit]

The following contestants were featured:[2]

Contestant Age Relation Rank
Landon Brown 21 Son of Bobby Brown 6th Place
A'Keiba Burrell-Hammer 20 Daughter of MC Hammer 8th Place
Lara Johnston 17 Daughter of The Doobie Brothers lead singer Tom Johnston 5th Place
Chloe Lattanzi 28 Daughter of Olivia Newton-John 3rd Place
Crosby Loggins 27 Son of singer Kenny Loggins 1st Place
Jesse Money 19 Daughter of Eddie Money 9th Place
Jesse Blaze Snider 25 Son of Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider 2nd Place
Lil B. Sure! 21 Son of Al B. Sure! 7th Place
Lucy Walsh 24 Daughter of Joe Walsh 4th Place

Items[edit]

  • Chloe Rose Lattanzi was the only contestant whose familial connection was her mother rather than her father.
  • Episode 2 introduced a fifth score screen representing the singer's total score, which was not present in Episode 1.
  • The show was conceived as an eight-week contest, but due to lower-than-expected ratings, an announcement in Episode 3 declared that subsequent episodes would have double eliminations, reducing the total number of broadcast shows to six. The Finale was moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Los Angeles.
  • After winning the immunity spot for Episode 2, Jesse Blaze Snider attempted to reject his second immunity on Episode 3. Producers forced him to accept the untouchable chair, ejecting Crosby Loggins for his earlier performance.
  • A'Keiba Burrell-Hammer's parent is a rapper rather than a singer.
