NBC casting new reality show in Nashville
NASHVILLE (WRCB) - If you want to be on network television's next reality show you will not have to go far to try out. Producers with NBC are making a stop in Nashville to find top voice talent.
A new reality show, called "The Voice", will feature music industry professionals mentoring singers. As the name indicates, the initial judging will be based more on the contestant's voice with the judges listening to the audition without seeing the contestant.
The singers will compete weekly in front of a panel of coaches. America will decide which singer wins the grand prize of a recording contract.
Auditions will be held Saturday at S.I.R. Studios on Cherry Avenue in Nashville.
Auditioners must be at least 18.
NBC has teamed up with hit-making reality show pioneers John de Mol, Mark Burnett and Warner Horizon Television to bring the show to America in Spring 2011. It is already a hit in Holland.
