VH1 Gives Eight Celebrities the Chance To Shine on the New Series 'Celebrity Pop Superstar' (working title) Premiering Fourth Quarter 2005

NEW YORK, Aug. 24 -- Sure, they might be famous, but can they sing? That's the question VH1 will ask this fall in the new series "Celebrity Pop Superstar" when eight celebrities will vie for the chance to prove they can cut it as a popstar icon. They might be well-known for acting, sports or modeling -- but can they sing, dance and perform like a superstar?

"Celebrity Pop Superstar," produced by Granada America, will serve as the platform for secretly aspiring pop stars to share their hidden talents with America. Each week, they will undergo intensive training with some of the best coaches in the business. And, viewers will be able to witness how they cope with all the struggles and breakthroughs of this extensive pop star grooming process.

Following each demanding week of rehearsals, the party will kick off as the celebrities perform in front of a live studio audience. Solos, duets and group performances will be some of the requirements throughout the competition -- as well as a few surprises that will have viewers talking all week long.

A panel of judges will observe the performances of our celebrity pop star hopefuls and will give a professional judgment on how their talents are developing and how their performance compares to their rehearsal. But who will have their dreams shattered when they're sent home and who will stay for another week of competition? The viewers decide through interactive voting. In the end, one celebrity will triumph and be awarded the title "Celebrity Pop Superstar".

"Celebrity Pop Superstar" is produced by Granada America, the producers of such TV hits as "Celebrity Fit Club" "Hell's Kitchen," "Nanny 911," and "Airline".

Kanpai Productions' Jay Karas and Andee Kuroda are the Executive Producers for Granada America along with Paul Jackson and Curt Northrup. Jeff Olde, Lee Rolontz and Claire McCabe are Executive Producers for VH1. The series will be shot in Los Angeles.
