Let It Shine! Watch Gary Barlow and Dannii Minogue in new TV show trailer


The BBC has unveiled a brand new trailer for Gary Barlow's new TV show Let It Shine.

The new BBC One talent series follows similar previous musicals series with Andrew Lloyd Webber, such as Any Dream Will Do and Over the Rainbow, although Gary's show appears a lot more glitzy and glamorous.

Fronted by Gary Barlow, Let It Shine will follow the hunt for singers to perform in a new stage musical based on the songs of Gary's band Take That.

The winners will perform in the production when it hits the stage in the West End.


Alongside Gary, Spandau Ballet singer Martin Kemp and former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue will take up a role on the judging panel.

They'll also be joined by guest judge, West End singer and star of Glee Amber Riley for the first stage of the competition.

Meanwhile, Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc will be presenting Let it Shine

Gary said: “Dannii, Martin and Amber all bring so much to this panel with the breadth of experience in music, acting, stage and TV. I can’t wait to get started – it’s going to be epic!”

In this teaser, we see a first look at the opening auditions which will air on BBC One next Saturday night (January 7).

"We're looking for someone who can sing, who can move, who can keep he audience on the edge of their seat," says Gary in the video.

Those who make it through the first round will go on to team up with a number of guest stars as part of of the audition process.

The second stage of the competition will see the talented contestants perform together in five group numbers for the very first time.

In all-singing and all-dancing extravaganzas, they will seek to prove their worth as they collaborate with some of the UK’s most-loved artists with spectacular staging and one big song after another.

The guest performers revealed are Busted, Beverley Knight, Melanie C, Olly Murs and Kaiser Chiefs.

Let It Shine will start on TV on BBC One on Saturday, January 7 at 7PM.
