Offering a fresh take on the music game show genre, I Can See Your Voice will provide music, comedy and play-along fun for the whole family.

The aim of the game involves two players attempting to guess who can and can’t sing from a group of mystery singers before them, in order to win a cash prize.

Through a series of amusing lip sync challenges, the competitors must weed out those masquerading as music maestros and whittle down the group to the one they believe truly has the gift of song.
