PADDY McGuinness will be returning to our screens next weekend as he takes centre stage in a brand new music gameshow.
I Can Hear Your Voice – a new BBC One primetime show – launches next Saturday night, and Bolton’s Paddy McGuinness, who previously presented the infamous dating show Take Me Out, is the main host.
The new show, based on the South Korean format which has been replicated in more than 10 countries, has a unique format. Singers will perform before two players and a panel of celebrities, including comedian Jimmy Carr, This Morning’s Alison Hammond and Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden.
Some of the singers are good while some will be terrible, with the players and panellists having to figure out who is who.
Contestants will go head-to-head as they watch people lip-syncing along to vocals that may or may not be their own, while bad singers will be quizzed on their own singing experience.
For the players to win £10,000, they’ll have to figure out who can actually sing and make sure their final pick – who gets to perform with a different popstar each week – has brilliant vocals.
If their final choice is a bad singer, their opponent gets to steal all the money.
It sounds chaotic, confusing and a lot of fun – but only time will tell if the TV show will hit all the right notes.
The first episode is set to air next Saturday at 7.20pm on BBC One, immediately before Casualty.
