NBC Orders A Cappella Singing Competition Show

NBC's Planning an A Cappella Singing Competition

Apparently, American Idol's Anoop Desai was just a little ahead of his time. NBC has ordered a singing competition show focusing on a cappella groups — like Anoop's beloved Clef Hangers — that will most likely air next TV season.

The prize for the top vocal-only group will be a recording deal with Sony Music, whose TV division is producing the show. No host or judges have been announced yet, but there are a few rules, as put forth by NBC: "no lip-syncing, no backup bands, no net." And if your first thought — like mine — was "It's the America's Best Dance Crew of singing," well, there's good reason: one of that show's producers helped develop this series.

An NBC executive said of the idea: "To hear these singing groups re-create a popular song with only the sounds of their voices is truly amazing." And I have to say, I'm curious to see this one for myself. I mean, I don't know if you've ever gotten yourself sucked into watching a cappella groups on YouTube, but it's pretty addictive.

I'm just hoping this show works better than NBC's last attempt at a singing show — anyone else remember The Singing Bee?
