Isaac Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland will host, judge The Fashion Show along with Fern Mallis

Bravo’s forthcoming fashion competition The Fashion Show has revealed its host and judges, and may not let its winner be selected by at-home viewers.

Isaac Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland, of Destiny’s Child fame, will host and judge the series. Also judging will be IMG’s Fern Mallis, the Fashion Week creator who has guest judged Project Runway and objected to Jeffrey Sebelia’s win.

Bravo originally said last fall that The Fashion Show‘s “ultimate winner will be chosen by viewers,” but the new press release says designers will “have their fate determined not only by the professional judges, but also by a studio audience.” Viewers aren’t mentioned.

The original announcement also said that The Fashion Show was just a working title, but it now appears to have stuck.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
