LOS ANGELES (AP) — Drew Lachey, a "Dancing with the Stars" champion and former 98 Degrees boy-band member, is moving to the role of host for another talent contest, "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann."
Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba, judges for ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," will be featured in the six-week series airing later this season, the network announced.
Open auditions will be held this month in New York, Nashville and the Los Angeles area for amateur performers who can dance and sing. The contestants will work with Tonioli and Inaba to form "the ultimate dance team," with viewers picking the winning group, ABC said Thursday.
Lachey was the second-season winner on "Dancing with the Stars," which returns Sept. 24 with celebrities including billionaire Dallas Mavericks basketball team owner Mark Cuban, actress Jennie Garth and singer Marie Osmond.
