In recent years I speculated on whether The Masked Singer or Holey Moley might be the next big format to head down under, and both has proven to be true.
For your consideration I now present …..I Can See Your Voice.
This is (another) singing show in which teams have to guess who is a good or bad singer …before they ever hear them sing.
The format comes from South Korea -home of The Masked Singer– and has been picked up by FOX in the US and BBC in the UK plus 8 other territories.
The BBC has commissioned the show from Fremantle-owned Thames and Naked.
Each episode of the 8 x 60-minute series will see a team of two players aiming to win a cash prize by guessing who can and can’t sing from a group of mystery singers standing before them. But there’s a catch, can they predict who has the voice of an angel or who will leave them covering their ears in horror all without ever hearing them sing a note? Helping the players will be our panel of celebrity experts, who are joined each week by a different singing superstar.
As the singing sensations or musical masqueraders navigate through a round of lip sync challenges, they will be offering entertaining hidden clues to the panel of celebrity experts who will help the players whittle down the group until there’s only one singer left. The chosen one will then perform a duet with the singing superstar to reveal whether they can or can’t sing. If the players have picked a good singer then they will take the prize… but if a bad singer is revealed, the imposter will pocket the cash.
