The Voice Out, Your Face In

Congratulations to Jason Dy for winning the second season of ‘The Voice of the Philippines’.

Now that the latest season of TVPH is history, a replacement program is currently in the works for this month. And yes, it will also be a talent show except that they have to transform into a particular artist and perform like one.

Enter ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’, a talent show created by Endemol, makers of the ‘Big Brother’ franchise. The Philippine franchise will be hosted by Billy Crawford, and it will feature eight celebrities who will have the enviable task of imitating an assigned singer, as chosen by a ‘randomiser’ (for more information, visit this Timow’s Turf article).

If that sounds familiar, it is that this approach has already been done numerous times in noontime shows, with the most recent instances being ‘It’s Showtime”s ‘Kalokalike’ and ‘Eat Bulaga”s ‘Gayang Gaya, Siyang Siya’. But in the case of ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’, a more meticulous approach will be used, primarily with the use of prosthetics.

That said, expect ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’ to be a more extreme, in your face version of the aforementioned noontime show segments. The excitement level should be raised even higher once these celebrities perform in their assigned alter egos.

‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’ is scheduled to air this March on ABS-CBN, premiere date to be announced.

    I think ABS will wait for the Bb. Pilipinas to finish before airing YFSF. The Bb. Pilipinas should be aired at about 9:30 pm on March 15 so that it won’t end late at night. GGV should be moved to 8:30 pm after Rated K.

    March 14 ang premiere date ng YFSF.

    I believe magkakaroon pa sila ng post-finale concert ang The Voice Season 2 na ipapapalabas ngayong Sabado.

    Katherine Solis of ABS-CBN PR confirmed to me via text that the Bb. Pilipinas Road to the Crown special is set for this Sunday, March 8, 9:45 pm. This means YFSF will be at 8 pm and Gandang Gabi Vice will be at 9 pm.

    Most likely, that will also be the schedule for March 15 when the coronation night of Bb. Pilipinas is held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Breaking News: YFSF will served as a comeback project on ABS-CBN for Megastar Ms. Sharon Cuneta, after 4 years. Mukhang hanggang co-host duties lang si Billy.

  5. James Ty III says:

    Especially since her TV5 shows flopped. Her show with Ogie Alcasid on Sunday nights was a big flop against GGV while her Madam Chairman wasn’t well-liked by the PBA fans who had to content themselves with watching the games on two separate channels.

    • But you have to go back to the very show that started her fall from grace: Sharon, Kasama Kita Kapatid, which was more of a subdued version of her Sunday talk show on ABS.

      Shawie’s ABS years were the pinnacle of her long career, peaking with her self-titled talk show in the mid-2000s. Now it remains to be seen if YFSF will put her back on track.

    Details on YFSF 2 to be aired next month replacing The Voice Kids:

    YFSF 1 Grand Winner Melai Cantiveros will be joining Billy Crawford as his co-host.

    Sharon accepted her role as judge for Season 2. I do not know yet if Gary V. and Jed will be coming back.

    Sam Concepcion, KZ Tandigan, Kakai Bautista, Myrtle Sarrosa, Eric Nicolas, Michael Pangilinan, Kean Cipriano and Denise Laurel will be the contestants for the season season.

      Hi! YFSF Season 2 will premiere on September 12(Next month nga, August pa lang ngayon). Nakapag tape na sila ng first episode last Thursday. Sharon, Jed, Gary as returning judge(Nag promo na nga sa Voice Kids Duet performance) plus Billy and Melai. Follow some abs-cbn ad prom personalities sa Instagram, dun sila madalas mag hint at nagpopost ng mga new shows, updates.

      • I see. For next weekend it is expected to be the thanksgiving concert of the TVK2 finalists; they also did it for TVP2 in the week before the premiere of YFSF 1.

        Should be interesting to see how will YFSF 2 will fare this year.

  7. Your Face Sounds Familiar and The Voice Kids gained for Sunday Primetime. Kaya nga napahatak nila ang ratings ng Rated K because of that. Kung wala yan sa isa diyan, malamang bababa ang ratings Rated K.

    • Rated K is only rating well because of those shows. But overall, Korina isn’t as much of a credible presenter and storyteller as Jessica Soho is on KMJS.

      Pagdating sa Sabado domain na yan ng ABS sa primetime, since there is the consistently high-rating MMK who didn’t even need either of the two shows to succeed.
