"We are really rooting for the at-home karaoke singers to succeed, but they're going to have to sing well to impress us!," said show judge Carnie Wilson ("Bridesmaids" and Wilson Phillips). "We will be judging the at-home karaoke singers just as carefully as we judge the show contestants, with great attention to voice quality, interpretation and entertainment value."

John R. Green, executive producer of "Karaoke Battle USA," said: "We were so inspired by what we saw in karaoke bars across the nation, we wanted to give people at home a chance to channel their inner star for our judges from home."
