Nick Lachey to host new TV talent show

Singer Nick Lachey is heading back to the small screen to host a new TV talent show.

The 98 Degrees star, who previously presented cappella singing show The Sing-Off, is set to front a new competition called The Winner Is.

The series for network NBC follows in the footsteps of predecessors such as American Idol, The Voice and The X Factor and will feature contestants singing in front of as-yet unnamed celebrity judges for a $1 million cash prize.

NBC spokesman Paul Telegdy says, "Nick is a versatile, seasoned host, and we are thrilled to be working him. With Nick at the helm on air and an original format... that includes surprising and competitive twists, viewers are sure to be immersed and entertained."

Public auditions for contestants will begin in January (13).
