Kelly Rowland, Patti LaBelle and Company ‘Clash The Choir’

NBC has announced that their upcoming new reality competition series Clash Of The Choirs will feature five musical superstars. R&B singer Kelly Rowland, Patti LaBelle, Michael Bolton, Nick Lachey and Blake Shelton have signed on to help create America’s “greatest” choir. The show will air live from New York over four nights, premiering on December 17th and continuing through December 20th. The stars will attempt to bring together twenty individually gifted singers from each of their hometown cities in a limited period of time. Kelly Rowland will be going back to Houston, TX; Michael Bolton will be traveling to his hometown of New Haven, CT; Patti LaBelle will be going to her hometown in Philadelphia, PA; Nick Lachey will be returning to Cincinnati, OH; and Blake Shelton will be traveling to Oklahoma City, OK. The celebrities will be dealing with choir members from very different musical backgrounds and with very different kinds of vocal training. Once the choirs are assembled they will compete in live performances in New York. After each choir performance, the choirs will be judged by the alternate celebrity choirmasters and a musical expert. However, the fate of the choirs will be determined by viewers watching at home who will have the opportunity to vote via phone or at www.nbc.com. The winning choir, along with the hometown celebrity musician, will get to pick a prize to help their community. The prize could be anything from renovating a school gym to an auditorium to a constructing a new neighborhood playground. Clash of The Choirs will air its two-hour premiere on Monday, December 17 (8-10 p.m. ET) and will air Tuesday, December 18 (8-9 p.m. ET), Wednesday, December 19 (also a two-hour episode from 8-10 p.m. ET) with the final competition and naming of the “greatest choir” on Thursday, December 20 (8-9 p.m. ET).
