Entertainment Report: Move Over American Idol, NBC Launches A New Singing Show
NBC hopes to give American Idol a run for its money with the premiere of a new singing show, The Voice of America. Super star producer Mark Burnett (Survivor/The Apprentice) is in charge and feels this could knock out American Idol.
NBC and Burnett created this singing show just to compete with American Idol in hopes that it will take off and beat AI as the new reigning singing competition.
