The singing competition show is taking shape with Nick on board as host and the announcement of the premiere date.

There will be a new singing competition which presents everything raw. NBC is mulling a new TV show called "The Sing-Off" where contestants have to rely on their voice to get through the next round. Nick Lachey, the ex member of boyband 98 Degrees, has been tapped to host and he explained the rules.

"There is nowhere to hide when you're doing an a cappella song," Lachey told People. "There's no band behind you and dubbing. It's just you. It's just them naked on stage and what they have done to prepare is what will show through in that moment."

Unlike any other singing reality competition, "The Sing-Off" is only a four-night series that will begin on December 14. Auditions had been held in four major cities in September and eight singing groups have been selected to participate. The winner will get an Epic Records/Sony Entertainment recording contract.

"This is a fantastic feel-good series that viewers of all ages can enjoy," said Paul Telegdy, executive VP of alternative programming for NBC and Universal Media Studios. "To hear these singing groups recreate a popular song with only the sounds of their voices is truly amazing."
