ABOUT KARAOKE BATTLE USA:

"Karaoke Battle USA" shines the spotlight on the best karaoke singers across the country in six one-hour episodes, hosted by Joey Fatone (*NSYNC, "Dancing w/the Stars"). It premiered FRIDAY, AUGUST 12 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET). The series aired regularly Fridays from 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET.

Host Joey Fatone (*NSYNC, "Dancing w/the Stars") and a judging panel including singer/songwriter and TV host Carnie Wilson ("Bridesmaids"), music journalist Joe Levy (Maxim, Rolling Stone) and 2009 National Karaoke Champion Brian Scott traveled to the regional competitions at House of Blues locales, semi-finals and finals, along with officials from the pre-eminent Karaoke World Championships USA organization, which crowns two U.S. champs each year. As part of "Karaoke Battle USA", the best male and female performers at each regional competition moved on to the Los Angeles House of Blues, where they squared off for the titles of King and Queen of Karaoke. In addition to those bragging rights, winners also received a prize package that includes a recording released by Hollywood Records and a trip to compete at the Karaoke World Championships in Ireland later this year.

The series is produced for ABC by Lincoln Square Productions. Executive producers are Rudy Bednar, Muriel Pearson, James Sunderland and John R. Green. "Karaoke Battle USA" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with stereo sound.
