NBC casting new vocal game show

NBC has green-lighted "The Winner Is," a new vocal game show that showcases talented singers of all ages - soloists and groups that include adults, kids, teens, seniors, families and professionals - all of whom will compete in head-to-head singing duels.

The contestants will be judged by a special in-studio panel led by one celebrity judge (to be announced) as they compete for an ultimate cash prize of $1 million. In a unique twist, they will have the chance to negotiate a deal with their opponent. Before hearing their fate the contestants can choose to step out of the competition in exchange for a predetermined cash prize or continue on in the game.

The show comes from Talpa Media USA, Inc. (NBC's "The Voice"). John de Mol is the executive producer. The announcement was made by Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC.

All you need is a great singing voice, a big personality, and the ability to size up your competition. They are searching for individuals and groups who can sing any style of music-from country, pop, rock, and hip hop to opera and everything in between! More info.
