I Can See Your Voice is to return to BBC One for a second series, it’s been confirmed.
I Can See Your Voice is fronted by Paddy McGuinness who is joined by regular celebrity investigators Jimmy Carr, Alison Hammond and Amanda Holden.
The show is still airing its first series on Saturday nights but it’s already been confirmed the BBC Has green lit a second run – plus a Christmas special.
Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning for the BBC said: “We are so pleased that I Can See Your Voice will be returning. I know viewers have really enjoyed playing along with our very funny, frank panel, as we all hold our breaths for those memorable moments when a great or gruesome singer starts belting out a banger!”
Amelia Brown, Managing Director of Thames and Executive Producer of I Can See Your Voice added: “We’re thrilled to be able to share the news that I Can See Your Voice will be making a return to our screens. It’s incredible to see how viewers have embraced the format which has seen some unique and notable performances.”
On the show each week Paddy and the panel are joined by a special musical guest and two contestants.
The aim of the game is for the players, with the help of the panel, to try and tell the difference between good and bad mystery singers, without ever hearing them sing a note.
The contestants attempt to weed out the bad singers based on a number of cryptic clues, questions and a lip-sync performance.
In each round they must eliminate what they hope is a bad singer until just one is left standing.
The last mystery singer only reveals if they’re a good or a bad singer by performing a duet with the week’s guest, resulting in either a magical musical moment or a cringe worthy collaboration!
If the players chose a good singer, they win a cash prize of £10,000, but if a bad singer has successfully fooled them all the way to the end, they steal the cash.
You can apply for series 2 as either a contestant or good/bad singer online here.
Musical guests on the first series include Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs, Louise Redknapp, Alexandra Burke, Heather Small from M People, Ronan Keating and Danny Jones.
You can catch up with episodes online now via the BBC iPlayer.
