Nickelodeon has found its host and judges for America’s Most Musical Family, its new series slated to premiere in the fall. Nick Lachey will host, with Grammy winner Ciara, digital sensation David Dobrik and singer-songwriter-actor Debbie Gibson manning the judges panel.
The kids and family network in February first announced its latest foray into the music competition genre, following its success with Lip Sync Battle Shorties. The new show, which begins production this week, will see 30 families competing across genres -- from pop to hip-hop to Latin to opera -- for a recording contract with Republic Records and a $250,000 cash prize.
Lachey has had various turns on the small screen and knows a thing or two about performing in a music group with a family member. He and his brother Drew are part of the boy band 98 Degrees, which formed in the ‘90s and continues to perform today.
