Actor Cesar Montano will be the host of the Filipino franchise of “The Singing Bee”.
“The Singing Bee,” a franchise from Zeal Entertainment, is essentially a videoke contest combined with a spelling bee. Contestants are not pressured to sing in tune but have to know the correct lyrics. A live band called the Bandble Bee, headed by Musical Director Mel Villena, plays the tunes that players will sing, while sexy dancers, dubbed as the Honeybees, dance to it. Just like a quiz bee, players will test their knowledge and hurdle several rounds before making it as a Singing Bee Champion.
