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.
