It’s official, Patrick Stump is now one of the judges on NBC’s acapella competition program, The Sing-Off.
If you’re thinking, “well, no duh. That was announced last month,” we know that, but the network just released a preview of the show featuring Stump being questioned by host Nick Lachey.
Like Stump said in the clip, he will be filling for Ben Folds for the season since the singer is currently off on tour leaving his seat on the panel vacant.
“How do I fill those shoes? They got the other nerdy rock star they could find,” joked Stump in the clip as well as revealing that his dad was excited for him, but then asked where the Ben was.
We guess Papa Stump is a fan for Ben Folds then?
The fifth season of The Sing-Off will begin next Wednesday (Dec. 17).
But, maybe the show needs to have a back-up plan for Stump. Fall Out Boy recently announced they would be releasing their new album, American Beauty/American Psycho on Jan. 20.
Considering that more often than not when a new record is released, the artist goes out on tour in support of it and we hope FOB do the same.
But then again, who can ever be too sure with them? Check out the preview clip of Stump’s introduction on The Sing-Off below.
