Don’t Forget The Lyrics

Sky1 sings in the New Year with the return of the popular entertainment series DON’T FORGET THE LYRICS. Back for a second series, the high octane show puts lyrical knowledge to the test to separate those who can, from the great pretenders. Host Shane Richie plays the perfect devils advocate and welcomes each contestant on to the stage to face a fantastic play list that each lyric-smith will need to get their vocal chords around.
Each ‘singer’ must choose one song from a different genre, from Soul Sister to Country, decades and artists before taking the mic’ to sing alongside the multi-talented …Lyrics house-band. The choice is made, the lyrics appear on screen and then the singing starts. Suddenly, the music will stop and the words will disappear, then it’s left to them to fill in the blanks.

The contestants climb a cash prize ladder after each correct answer. Along the way, three back-ups – including back up singers – can help them out. They must sing nine popular tracks correctly before facing one final song with up to 15 missing words – that’s all that stands in the way of the life changing £250,000 jackpot.

Does Celine Dion ‘Believe that the hotdogs go on,’ is the lyric in the classic ballad How Deep is Your Love, ‘You come to me on a submarine…’ and does Jacko claim that ‘The chair is not my son’ in his worldwide hit Billie Jean?

When there’s £250,000 at stake, will the contestants sing the right words when the music stops? Or will they be at a loss for words? All will be revealed as they ‘Lock in those lyrics.’

It’s that simple: 10 songs, 10 missing lyrics and £250,000 providing you DON’T FORGET THE LYRICS. No-one was lucky enough to walk away with the big-money-jack-pot in the first series but this time around, it could all be different.

DON’T FORGET THE LYRICS, Sky1 & Sky1 HD Saturday 17th January at 6.30pm.
