Once one of the most famous pop stars in the world Joey Fatone is working his way from the game show circuit. Starting off as a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” he will now host a new NBC game show entitled “The Singing Bee”.
Contestants on “The Singing Bee” will try to accurately sing the lyrics to the most popular songs of all time in a variety of karaoke-style competitions. If they mess up, they’re out of the game.
Fatone “brings an added burst of energy and a legion of fans with his musical talent and infectious personality,” said Craig Plestis, an NBC Entertainment executive vice president, in a statement this week.
I give the guy credit for not vanishing into the background after Justin Timberlake decided he was too good for the boys of N*Sync.Â He had a nice run on Broadway and was the runner up on “Dancing”.Â Judging by the previews of this game show it has some potential to be a surprise hit – at least for a couple of weeks.Â How many people sit in their cars and think they know the word to a song…but can they do it without the music?? I still think if joey wasn’t a celebrity he would be sitting in his parents backyard watering the tomatoes and making his own wine.Â Â More info about the show can be found at NBC.
Do the ladies like game show hosts?
