'N SYNC star Joey Fatone has been signed up to host new TV talent search competition FAME.

The show, which debuts next week (ends30MAY03), follows original Fame star Debbie Allen as she attempts to find multi-talented performers from across America to compete for stardom.

Fatone is following in the footsteps of his groupmate Lance Bass, who recently served as the lead judge on AMERICA'S MOST TALENTED KID.

Bass admits he wasn't even aware that his best friend had landed the Fame hosting gig, saying, "Joey has a reality show? Really? I did not know that. I didn't know he had a reality show. But I guess I will be on it since he's my best friend. I don't know?"
