Thanks to Luke S for alerting us to this in the comments, Netflix have a singing gameshow called Sing On, co-created by Friend Of The Bar Stuart Shawcross (they’ve actually got a couple of foreign language versions which have been on for a few weeks, but the English language one started recently). It’s Singstar meets Weakest Link effectively, six singers add money to a group pot by hitting notes correctly on some well chosen karaoke classics, for the first three rounds they each vote someone off (with immunity for the person who did the best), final rounds eliminate the voting and it’s solely decided by the computer judge, winner wins the pot (up to $60,000).
Being America, everyone basically goes straight for the throats of the competition from the off (which suggests the money needs rebalancing a bit), but it’s light and decently entertaining, lots of
shouting and mugging to the camera effrevesence from host Titus Burgess, decent upbeat tune selection. Think I’d prefer a running cash total for the song as the notes are hit as the demo seems to suggest but there we are.
And just thirteen years after Ben Shephard/Denise Van Outen sung for SAM on Who Dares Sings.
