It was also been announced that Nick Lachay will be returning as host of “The Sing-Off” for his fourth season on the show.
“There are very few musical artists as accomplished and talented as Jewel. Her addition to ‘The Sing-Off’ judges panel, along with our stellar team of Shawn Stockman and Ben Folds, raises the showmanship of the series up another notch,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and late-night programming. “The musical credentials of Nick Lachey are extraordinary and his continued contributions to the show as host remain a huge asset.”
“The Sing-Off” is going back to its original format, which it used when it premiered in 2009. It will air over several nights as a holiday strip. During its first season in 2009, the singing competition aired as a five-night event in December. It didn’t become a weekly series until 2011.
The fourth season of “The Sing-Off” will air later this year.
