The BBC's answer to The Masked Singer, I Can See Your Voice offers madcap entertainment as viewers, a panel of celebs and two contestants are tasked with plucking the good singers from the bad, without them hitting a single note.


Paddy McGuinness host the guessing game, based on a South Korean entertainment show, which asks contestants to try guess who can and can't sing from a group of mystery singers. If they guess right, big cash prizes are in store.

The celebrity panel includes Amanda Holden, Alison Hammond, and Jimmy Carr, who are joined by a new musical guest each week. The musical guest has to perform with the the last 'singer' standing at the end of the show, and if the performer really can sing, the contestants win their cash prize.

Tonight's guest star is Louise Redknapp, who will be helping the celebs and contestants pick out the talent from the not-so-talented warblers.

BBC One's I Can See Your Voice began on April 10th.

What is I Can See Your Voice about?

I Can See Your Voice is an upcoming primetime gameshow in which teams of two players guess who can and can't sing from a group of mystery singers for the chance to win a cash prize.

"Can they predict who has the voice of an angel or who will leave them covering their ears in horror all without ever hearing them sing a note?" the BBC teases.

Contestants will be assisted by the show's panel of celebrity experts – Amanda Holden, Alison Hammond and Jimmy Carr – as well as a guest singing superstar.

The I Can See Your Voice trailer below gives you a glimpse of the madness you can expect.

Each 60-minute show will consist of various lip sync challenges while the mysterious singers offer hidden clues to the celebrity experts who'll help the players whittle down the group until their just one singer left.

The remaining singer will then perform a duet with the singing superstar to reveal whether or not they can in fact sing – if they're a good singer, the contestants will take home the prize but if not, the imposter will pocket the cash.
