Five-time Emmy nominee Tituss Burgess hosts Sing On!, a new, eight-episode Netflix series is a karaoke-lover’s dream where pitch is perfect and could win you up to $60,000.
In each themed episode, six contestants belt out the biggest hits from that genre while being judged by a vocal analyzer comparing their vocal performance to the original artist’s. The more they sing in tune, the more cash they add to a collective jackpot worth up to $60,000. The first round is worth $10,000 and lyrics are randomly assigned so contestants must be ready for anything – the highest scoring contestant moves on, while the remaining singers vote one fellow contestant out. For five more rounds, the stakes get higher and the jackpot gets bigger, and the final two contestants face off in a head-to-head battle to win the grand prize. Weekly rounds are built around specific musical themes like Chart Toppers, Love Songs, and Summer Anthems.
In a recent interview with AwardsWatch, Burgess said, “I’ve always enjoyed seeing people get lost in the art form of karaoke.” Perfect for an at-home sing-a-long, viewers of all ages will find themselves off the couch, belting their favorite tunes and having a sing-off of their own.
Sing On! debuts exclusively on Netflix September 16.
