The three performers with the least votes will then have to perform again on Wednesday night's broadcast where INXS will then make the ultimate decision to eliminate one aspiring rock star.

ROCK STAR: INXS, will begin with a special one-hour premiere on Monday, July 11 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), followed by a one-hour broadcast on Tuesday, July 12 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) and a half-hour edition on Wednesday, July 13 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Hosted by rock guitarist Dave Navarro and Brooke Burke, ROCK STAR: INXS, from "Survivor" executive producer Mark Burnett, combines the world of rock music with relationship-style unscripted drama, performance competition and a weekly contestant elimination. The last singer standing will become the lead singer of the internationally renowned band INXS and embark on a worldwide concert tour with the band and be part of the group's new album.

The 15 performers will be housed together in a Hollywood Hills mansion. Each week will feature a taped reality segment focusing on the performers' relationship and activities (Monday's episode), along with a performance episode (Tuesdays) and weekly elimination show (Wednesdays).

The series is produced by Mark Burnett Productions. Mark Burnett, David Goffin ("American Idol"), Lisa Hennessy ("The Contender") and INXS managers David Edwards and Michael Murchison are executive producers. Conrad Riggs is co-executive producer.
