There are more reasons to stay home this August, with the premiere of five exciting new TV shows:
Sing On! Germany
Contestants on Sing On! Germany are judged purely by how accurately they’re able to hit the notes in popular songs sung by their original singers.
But get this, the decision on who wins is made by a voice analysis system, which analyses the contestants’ every note against the original recording.
The system then calculates the amount of notes a contestant got right. The most on-pitch singer walks away with €30,000 (RM149,000).
The show has a Spanish edition, which premiered last month. So what are you waiting for, it’s karaoke time!
Sing On! Germany premieres Aug 7 on Netflix.
