Jewel Joins NBC's 'The Sing-Off' Revival

Jewel is joining NBC's "The Sing-Off" as a judge.

The pop folk singer replaces Sara Bareilles who decided not to return for the a capella singing competition's revival.

"There are very few musical artists as accomplished and talented as Jewel," NBC's President of Alternative and Late Night Programming, Paul Telegdy, said in a statement.

"Her addition to 'The Sing-Off' judges panel, along with our stellar team of Shawn Stockman and Ben Folds, raises the showmanship of the series up another notch," he said.

Executive producer Mark Burnett called Jewel "one of America's greatest singer songwriters and is an amazing storyteller."

The network doesn't seem to have set the show's airdates yet.

Previously, Jewel served as a judge on Bravo's only season of singing competition, "Platinum Hit." Earlier this year, she played June Carter Cash in the Lifetime film "Ring of Fire," based on Johnny Cash's life.
