“I think what makes this show so special is that it all unfolds live,” Seacrest told CBS News at the Barclays Center. “You never know what exactly is going to happen — who’s going to do what and who’s going to not do what. And I think that’s the beauty of a show like this.”

The two-hour event will be executive produced by Richard Beckman, CEO of Three Lions Entertainment, and Don Mischer of Don Mischer Productions.
