NBC plans a capella competition show

NBC has announced it is holding auditions for its new a capella singing competition show The Sing-Off in New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles.

The network said next month's auditions are intended to find the most talented a capella singing groups to compete on the series.

There's no lip-syncing, back-up bands or safety net, NBC said in a news release. They'll be singing for America's vote with the winner walking away with the ultimate prize -- an Epic Records/Sony recording contract.

NBC did not say when the series is slated to premiere.
