NBC ANNOUNCES CASTING CALLS FOR SECOND SEASON OF 'THE SING-OFF'

Auditions To Take Place In New York City (May 22), Nashville (May 29), Chicago (May 31) And Los Angeles (June 5)

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - April 28, 2010 - NBC's renewed vocal-competition series "The Sing-Off" will be traveling to four U.S. cities in May in search of the most talented a capella singing groups to compete for a chance at a Sony Music recording contract. Auditions will take place in New York City (May 22), Nashville (May 29), Chicago (May 31) and Los Angeles (June 5).

"The Sing-Off" originally debuted as a four-night event last December and was hosted by multi-platinum recording artist, Nick Lachey. The one-of-a-kind battle of voices culminated with a live finale. Celebrity judges Nicole Scherzinger, Shawn Stockman and Ben Folds will continue to critique the singing groups with their expertise.

The show features the country's top a capella groups performing popular songs in a style that viewers have never heard before. The groups will be singing for America's vote with the winner walking away with the ultimate prize - a Sony Music recording contract and $100,000.
