NEW YORK, Oct. 25 -- They can act, model and even box, but can they sing? VH1 will give viewers the chance to decide through multiple platforms who should stick to their day jobs and who gets to tough it out over six weeks to become a pop star in the new original series "But Can They Sing?" premiering on October 30 at 10PM*.

VH1 will then turn the voting over to America at 11PM* where viewers will have the opportunity to cast their ballots one of three ways:

-- Online (http://www.vh1.com/shows/dyn/but_can_they_sing/series.jhtml)

-- Text messaging, by sending their contestant's number ("01","02", "03", etc.) to 91757. Text message voting is sponsored by Sprint but is open to all carriers/networks.

-- Via toll-free phone

VH1 will also offer viewers a sneak peek of two full performances each Sunday morning prior to the 10PM* premiere of "But Can They Sing?" on vspot.vh1.com

Additional exclusive Vspot programming includes interviews with contestants immediately following their performances, post-show discussions with studio audience members, and post-show predictions from the show's voice/dance coaches.

"But Can They Sing?" is produced by Granada America, the producers of such TV hits as VH1'S "Celebrity Fit Club" "Hell's Kitchen," "Nanny 911," and "Airline." Kanpai Pictures' Jay Karas and Andee Kuroda are the Executive Producers for Granada America along with Paul Jackson and Curt Northrup.

Launched in July of this year, VH1's broadband entertainment network Vspot (vspot.vh1.com) offers distinct channels of original and exclusive music and pop culture programming that allows VH1's upscale adult audience to take VH1 with them wherever they go. Vspot debuted with the first episode of the VH1 series "Surreal Life 5" three days before the series premiered on the VH1 linear network. Music artists sound off in original franchises such as "Artist 2 Artist" and "Take 2." In September, Vspot extended VH1's "Hip Hop Honors" event with elements such as "VIP Pass" which featured behind-the- scenes action hosted by MC Lyte and an exclusive performance on the "gold carpet" by artist David Banner -- all resulting in a six-fold increase in normal traffic.
