ABS-CBN Network is set to air a local version of NBC’s The Singing Bee.
Combining karaoke singing with a spelling bee-style competition, this show features contestants trying to remember the lyrics to popular songs. In each episode, six contestants (four contestants in season two) will be selected from the audience to play a series of games that test their knowledge of song lyrics. If a contestant makes an error, he or she will forfeit her chance to get into the “musical chairs”. If a contestant is not in a musical chair when the round is over, he or she is eliminated.
