"The Singing Bee" is a variety-competition show that challenges
contestants to accurately sing the lyrics to popular songs — even when
the band stops playing. In this karaoke showdown, there’s no middle
ground for partially correct answers — contestants must be perfect or
they’re out. Six weeks of "The Singing Bee" are scheduled to air in the Fall on NBC on Fridays from 8PM to 9PM ET.
Family-friendly, broad in appeal and conducive to playing (and singing) along at home, “The Singing Bee” features popular, recognizable music that inspires hilarious wrong answers and amazing performances by those rare contestants who somehow manage to get every word right.
"The Singing Bee" is produced by the Gurin Company and Juma Entertainment, LLC. The executive producers are Phil Gurin (NBC’s "Miss Universe" franchise) and Robert C. Horowitz ("Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials Top 40 Countdown").
