Burbank, S.D., native Douglas Roegiers was one of six singers that competed for a $1 million prize on the Thursday, July 11 premiere broadcast of “The Winner Is” on KDLT TV. The episode featuring Roegiers will be rebroadcast on July 18 at 7 p.m.
Roegiers’ style channels back to the days of the Big Band Swing era and his loyal fans know him as "The Crooner." He also performs with a nine-piece swing band Phat Cat Swinger.
"The Winner Is" mixes a singing competition with the strategy of a game show.
Hosted by Nick Lachey, each episode features six acts that go head-to-head.
Contestants must bet on their own performance, win over 101 jurors, and avoid cash temptations to move forward.
Douglas is the son of Chuck and Rosie Roegiers of Burbank. He currently lives in North Hollywood, Calif.
