WATCH: Sing On! trailer for Netflix karaoke series

Sing On! posterSing On! the new karaoke series hosted by Tituss Burgess will be launching on Netflix this month.

Burgess is a Broadway performer who is known for starring as Titus Andromedon in the Netflix comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and is currently providing the voice of Cole Tillerman in the Apple musical animated series Central Park.

Here is the official description of the unique musical competition:

“Hosted by the hilarious and talented Tituss Burgess, this eight-episode series is a karaoke-lover’s dream. 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. 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.”
Based on this description, what will set Sing On! apart from most reality singing competitions is the fact that the contestants will be judged by a machine rather than by human judges. There will be more pressure on them to sing the notes with technical prowess so at least there will be less awkward singing off-key. And by the looks of the trailer, the genre of songs might be an additional treat for Broadway musical fans.

Sing On! will debut on September 16 on Netflix.
