Musicians, assemble!

E! News has your exclusive first look at the poster for Songland, NBC's upcoming music competition series, and it features some of the industry's hottest artists assembled like the music superheroes they are. The poster, left, features John Legend, the Jonas Brothers, Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor and more, all stacked up for Songland.

In Songland, a guest musician and producers Ryan Tedder, Ester Dean and Shane McAnally will hear unknown songwriters pitch original material. After the four performances, the artist will pair off three of the four songwriters with producers where they'll then go off to shape the song. In the end, a winner will be chosen and their song will be recorded and released to the public.

"Songland has been an ongoing passion project for both myself as well as my team at 222," Levine said in a statement when the show was announced. "As a songwriter, I am all too familiar with the challenges that face the music community today. With this new series, we are excited to provide opportunities that will not only impact these songwriters' careers but also give them a platform to truly showcase their talent to a global audience."
