NBC Greenlights Another Singing Competition TheWrap
Another singing competition is coming to NBC, with the network greenlighting a new show, TheWrap.com reports. "The Winner Is" will feature singers of all ages competing for a $1 million prize, the story reports.
The show comes on the heels of NBC’s success with "The Voice." But "The Winner Is" has a twist: Singers can opt to exit the show for instant cash, along the lines of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," if they think their performance wasn't up to par.
Contestants can also choose to continue, awaiting the jury results to see whether they made it to the next round -- with each round worth more money.
The singers will be judged by a panel led by a celebrity judge, who is yet to be determined, the piece adds.
"The Winner Is" is executive produced by John De Moi, the creator and producer of "The Voice." A premiere date has not been set.
