Well, this is an interesting twist to Nick Cannon's Wild' n Out series: for the new season, there will be an American Idol-like component where viewers can come on and see if they have what it takes to be Wild'n.

According to Comedy Hype, Season 8 of Wild 'n Out, which will return this Thursday night, will include a special episode at the end of the season called Wild 'N Out Live In Times Square. The episode will be a "wrap show" with cast members discussing what happened during the season, and their favorite skits.

But it will also feature viewers who are interested in being on the show. Viewers will be performing, and the team will judge whether they can make it on the actual show.

According to the promo, there will be giveaways and prizes to win during the live competition as well.

This Thursday's Wild 'n Out episode will be a double-header with 2chainz in the first half hour, and K Michelle in the second half hour. You can watch a preview clip of this week's action here:

It's currently unclear when Wild 'n Out Times Square will be recording or put on; however, the show will be live, so expect it to be coming in the next few months.

The new extension to the Wild 'n Out franchise comes after Nick Cannon has had some issues with other shows, including America's Got Talent.

Cannon left the show after a disagreement over a joke, and has not been on since. One of the other celebs on the show, Howie Mandel, has begged for Cannon to return; however, he has not agreed to yet.

Cannon has also recently gotten some great news, as his second child was born. He has consistently said that being a father is extremely important to him, and that he plans to be a great father in the future.
