NBC IS OFFERING "THE WINNER IS" VIEWERS A CHANCE TO WIN $10,000 DURING EACH ORIGINAL EPISODE

ADDITIONALLY FANS CAN ENGAGE SYNC TO BROADCAST WITH AN ONLINE PLAY-ALONG GAME

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - June 7, 2013 - When NBC's new singing competition "The Winner Is" premieres on June 10 (10-11 p.m. ET) viewers on both coasts can go to the show's official page (http://www.nbc.com/the-winner-is/) and enter to win* $10,000 during each original broadcast. Two winners -- one from each time zone (Eastern Standard and Pacific/Mountain Standard) -- will be chosen each week.

In addition to the sweepstakes, fans can engage sync to broadcast with a new online play-along game. The game can be found on NBC.com, the NBC mobile App, zeebox and the "The Winner Is" Facebook page. Players will earn points by predicting who will win each musical duel on the show, by choosing who they think will take the cash or by selecting who they think will ultimately be the final winner of the $1 million cash prize. A leader board displaying the top point earners will be included at the end of each original broadcast. Players will also be able to share game choices and points won over their multiple social platforms.

Hosted by Nick Lachey, "The Winner Is " infuses the performance of a singing competition series with the strategy of a game show. Each episode features six acts that go head to head each week and sing for a shot at a $1 million grand prize. The aim of the game is simple: Contestants must believe in their own performance, edge out their competition and avoid cash temptations to move forward.

The series, produced by Talpa Media USA Inc. and Universal Television, is executive-produced by Stijn Bakkers and CraigPlestis.
