NEW YORK (AP) _ Amy Grant and Chaka Khan have joined the lineup of music stars for ``Who Wants to Be a Millionaire's'' Rock Star Edition, where they'll compete to win $1 million for their favorite charities.
Additionally, Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson is replacing previously announced bandmate Nick Carter as a contestant, ABC said this week.
The special episodes will air Sunday, Feb. 11 at 9 p.m. EST and Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 8 p.m. EST.
Music-industry stars previously announced as contestants: the Backstreet Boys' Howie Dorough, KISS frontman Gene Simmons, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, Sisqo, Emily Robison of the Dixie Chicks, Sugar Ray lead singer Mark McGrath and Gladys Knight.
Not every contestant will make it to the hot seat, but all the participants are guaranteed to receive at least $32,000 for their favorite charities.
