Here’s your first look at Nine’s four specials for Celebrity Singing Bee -and it’s almost an American style promo. Listen to those loud thumps accompanying the phrase “not just a new series. A Whole New Show.”
Even in this brief clip Tim Campbell already looks a lot more comfortable than hosting Wheel of Fortune -and I’m pleased to see he hasn’t given in to those .
Unlike the first series, the show incorporates celebrities singing off for charity. The four one-hour specials are themed as “70’s night, 80’s night, Girl Power and One Hit Wonders.”
Some of the faces in this promo include Blair McDonough, Mark Mitchell, Suzie Wilkes, Dermott Brereton, Marty Fields, Russell Gilbert, Colin Lane, Dylan Lewis, Jacki Weaver, Jo Stanley, Totti Goldsmith and a Wiggle.
And some look like they are Bee-List celebrities. I certainly couldn’t name everyone from this quick grab, can you?
There will also be some original artists making appearances with John Paul Young, Daryl Braithwaite, Mark Gable, Greedy Smith belting out their best-known songs.
Celebrity Singing Bee returns 8:30pm Thursday July 10 on Nine.
