NEW YORK, New York (June 27, 2007) — Joey Fatone’s latest gig: hosting “The Singing Bee,” a sing-along variety game show set to premiere July 10 on NBC.
Fatone, one of the members of boy band ‘N Sync, was a runner-up on the fourth season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” The 30-year-old singer has appeared in several Broadway musicals, including “Little Shop of Horrors.”
Contestants on “The Singing Bee” will try to accurately sing the lyrics to the most popular songs of all time in a variety of karaoke-style competitions. If they mess up, they’re out of the game.
Fatone “brings an added burst of energy and a legion of fans with his musical talent and infectious personality,” said Craig Plestis, an NBC Entertainment executive vice president, in a statement this week.
