Patrick Stump serves as one of the judges in NBC's reality competition series "The Sing-Off."

Patrick Stump is the lead singer, guitarist and composer for Chicago-based Grammy-nominated rock band Fall Out Boy. The four-piece group — Stump, Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar), and Andy Hurley (drums) — have toured round the world (several times) and sold nearly 10 million combined albums, singles and videos globally since debuting in the spring of 2005 on Island Records, a division of Island Def Jam Music Group.

Fall Out Boy's two Island albums, "From Under The Cork Tree" (2005) and "Infinity on High" (2007) have spun off a litany of top-charted hits that have won the hearts of fans in the U.S. and abroad: "Sugar, We're Going Down" (MTV2 Award winner for 2005), "Dance, Dance" (MTV VMA Viewers Choice Award for 2006), and "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More 'Touch Me'" (three from "From Under The Cork Tree"); "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race," "The Carpal Tunnel of Love," "Thnks fr th Mmrs," "The Take Over, The Breaks Over," and "I'm Like a Lawyer with the Way I'm Always Trying to Get You Off (Me & You)" (five from "Infinity on High"). All Fall Out Boy recordings have been written by Stump (music) and Wentz (lyrics).

Stump is a founding member of Fall Out Boy, which formed in 2001. The band spent their formative years on the mean streets of Wilmette, a north Chicago 'burb. Their May 2003 release, the 12-song "Take This to Your Grave," was released on Jacksonville, Florida's Fueled by Ramen label. It brought them to the attention of Island Records, who signed the group later that year.

While working out the recording details of their Island debut over the next year, the band took up the slack in May 2004, with a 5-song acoustic EP, "My Heart Will Always Be the B-Side to My Tongue," that was coupled with a DVD. This continued on "From Under The Cork Tree" and "Infinity On High."

By 2005, Stump was starting to show up on a number of outside projects. The very first was "The Papercut Chronicles" debut album by upstate New York's Gym Class Heroes, in which Patrick's vocals were heard on "Cupid's Chokehold." They were the first band signed to Decaydence, the label imprint launched by Wentz. He also appeared on "Motion City" soundtrack's song "Everything Is Alright" from Commit This to Memory.

In 2006, Stump returned as producer of the second GCH album, "As Cruel as School Children," which also featured him on "Clothes Off!" He was one of the producers on "Like Vines" (Decaydence/Fueled By Ramen), the second album by fellow Chicago indie band the Hush Sound. And Madison, Wisconsin, band Misery Signals brought in Stump to sing the chorus of "One Day I'll Stay Home" on their second album, "Mirrors." In addition, Stump did a remix for the Sounds' "Queen of Apology," which appeared on the "Snakes on a Plane" soundtrack album.

2007 was predictably the busiest year ever for Fall Out Boy in general, and Patrick in particular. In support of "Infinity on High" (released in February), there was headliner touring with Permanent Me and New Found Glory in January; followed from February through April by shows in the UK, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and throughout Europe; then the massive 42-city Honda Civic Tour of North America from April through June (with The Academy Is, Paul Wall, and Cobra Starship). After playing at Al Gore's prestigious Live Earth Festival at Giants Stadium in New Jersey on July 7th (alongside Bon Jovi, Kanye West, Madonna, and other top acts), they served as house band at their Las Vegas VMA Fantasy Suite in September, the night of the annual MTV VMAs (where they won the Best Group award). They finished out the year on "The Young Wild Things Tour" from October through December, with Gym Class Heroes, Plain White T's and Cute Is What We Aim For.

Somehow, in his spare time, Patrick managed to produce — and co-write all 11 songs on — Cobra Starship's second album "¡Viva La Cobra!" (Decaydence/Fueled by Ramen). And Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco enlisted Patrick to co-write and co-produce "Little Weapon," a track on his second album, "The Cool" (Atlantic). He also made several guest appearances: on New Found Glory's "The King of Wishful Thinking" (on "From the Screen to Your Stereo Part II"), and as a vocalist on Timbaland's "One & Only" (on "Shock Value").

Stump then recorded a solo album. Playing every instrument and handling his own production duties, he explored a different style of music, one informed by the likes of Michael Jackson, Prince, and Justin Timberlake. "The Truant Wave" EP unveiled the new sound in early 2011, followed by "Soul Punk," his full-length debut, later that year on Nervous Breakdance.

After taking an extended break in 2009, Fall Out Boy got back together to record their fifth studio album, "Save Rock and Roll," which was released in 2013.

Fall Out Boy's first single, "Centuries," from their forthcoming sixth studio album for Island Records/DCD2, has become a multi-format radio smash, quickly charting in the top 10 on modern rock and now exploding on the Top 40 chart. The track debuted at #1 on the iTunes Alternative Chart and the song already has more than 20 million plays on Spotify and 3 million plays on YouTube in just three weeks. Fall Out Boy has also written the song "Immortals," featured in the trailer and the film "Big Hero 6" from Disney.
