Attention all singers, relevant or otherwise — there could be an opening in the hotly sought-after reality TV judging world.
According to Entertainment Weekly, pop-folk singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles (she of “Love Song”, which is currently playing at a Kohl’s somewhere out there) is leaving the a cappella competition series The Sing-Off to “focus on her music.” You know, like how Christopher Abbott isn’t returning to Girls for Season 3 so he can “work on numerous other projects.” There’s no reports of beef on The Sing-Off set, though there are rumors that host Nick Lachey was told, “Stay out of it, Nick Lachey!”
The Grammy-nominated star took over for Nicole Scherzinger on the NBC series after her Season 3 departure to Fox’s X Factor. Bareilles’ co-judges Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman, on the other hand, would appear to be staying put on the summer series for now.
