Committed are in the studio recording their debut album set for release this summer.

"The Sing-Off" averaged more than nine million viewers in its second season to become NBC's second highest-rated reality competition program.

For the first two seasons, multi-platinum singer Nick Lachey hosted the show and celebrity judges included: Nicole Scherzinger, Shawn Stockman and Ben Folds.

"The Sing-Off" is from Tenth Planet Productions, Outlaw Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television. Joel Gallen, Deb Newmyer and Sam Weisman are executive producers. Josh Greenberg serves as co-executive producer.
