ABC’s upcoming summer singing competition “Boy Band” is bringing back some ’90s favorites.
Nick Carter of The Backstreet Boys and Emma Bunton of the Spice Girls will serve as judges on the series, Variety has learned exclusively. Rita Ora has been tapped to host.
The announcements will be made Tuesday at ABC’s upfront presentation, which is also when executives will tout to advertisers the other singing competition coming to the network: “American Idol.”
“Boy Band” will air this summer with 10 episodes, as first reported by Variety. The show will pit singers against one another in a battle to join the next music-group sensation. Performers will compete for spots in a band with a recording contract at Hollywood Records, with viewers voting live at home for their five favorite potential members.
