The crowd votes for the best performer in each battle, but before the results are unveiled the players will be offered cash to leave the game and will be forced to choose whether or not to stick around to see if they've made it to the next round.

Eight winners will come together for the grand finale, but the two final contestants must choose whether to walk away with a cash prize or await the audience's decision - upon which they could win a large amount of money.

NBC's president of alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy has now confirmed that Lachey will host the series, describing him as a "versatile, seasoned host".

"With Nick at the helm on air and an original format from [production company] Talpa that includes surprising and competitive twists, viewers are sure to be immersed and entertained," he added.

Lachey previously hosted NBC's competition The Sing-Off.

Auditions for The Winner Is will take place on December 8 in Raleigh and Seattle and on December 15 in Houston and Philadelphia, with an additional casting call in Los Angeles expected to take place in the future.
