Nick Lachey: There Is A Lot Of Great Feedback As We Go

Posted: Updated:

Nick Lachey has a passion for acappella, which is singing without instrumental music.  He was a member of the boy band 98 Degrees that got signed to its first recording contract after singing an acappella medley in the office of the president of Motown Records.

And now he returns as host of "The Sing-Off" for its fourth season, and he's glad to be back.

"You know it's given a lot to me, and in some kind of way this is my way of giving back to the genre of a cappella," Nick said.

And Nick promises that in this series, there will be no lip-synching, no backup bands and no safety net for any of the groups competing for cash and a recording contract.

Nick joins Steve Edwards and Maria Quiban on Good Day L.A.
