All Together Now: BBC’s new singing show with Geri Horner and Rob Beckett
The BBC has revealed a new singing talent show called All Together Now and hosted by Rob Becket with former Spice Girl Geri Horner.
The six part series starts this Saturday from 7:15PM.
Each episode will see a range of talented performers (solos and groups) take to the stage to perform in front of ‘The 100’, an audience of great singers with big voices and even bigger opinions.
If any of The 100 like what they hear, they stand up and join in. The greater the number that stand up and sing along, the higher the contestant’s score.
Featuring big name music talent as part of The 100, the series comprises of five hour-long heats.
Each contestant is battling to convince as many of The 100 as possible to lend them their voices. The 100 are made up of specially cast members of the public all with singing credentials, from right across the UK.
With a real mix of musical backgrounds, the singer will be confronted with 100 people all with something to say – tough crowds don’t get any tougher.
Geri will be heading up The 100 to offer her expert advice as a performer, provide support and encouragement to the contestants, and find out exactly what will make The 100 stand up and join in with her…or not.
At the end of each heat, two performers progress to the Grand Final for the chance to win a big cash prize.
The BBC says that All Together Now is for “anyone who believes their voice could win them big, and surprise a lot of people in the process”.
Geri said: “I’m so excited to be part of this show. It’s about celebrating talent, uniting people from all walks of life, feeling good AND singing! It’s a whole lot of joy standing up together on a Saturday night.”
Rob Beckett added: “If like me you’re the sort of person who likes to belt out a tune in the shower then I’m pretty sure this is the show for you… but if you’re the sort of person who likes to belt out a tune in the shower while another hundred people join in… then firstly, how big’s your bathroom? And secondly this is definitely the show for you!
“In my opinion, All Together Now is going to be the best thing to happen to Saturday night Saturday since they invented Sunday morning… and I could not be happier or more excited to be a part of it.”
All Together Now will air on BBC One from 7:15PM on Saturday, January 27.
