'Sing Your Face Off' Is The Best Show You Haven't Watched
I'm in a mood. I missed Saturday night's Sing Your Face O ff premiere/didn't know Sing Your Face Off existed until Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb yakked about it during the fourth hour of Monday morning's Today Show. Though I didn’t tell my DVR to record the show, my DVR should’ve known. If there is any device on the planet that knows my taste in TV, it’s that cable box. I wish my DVR would take more initiative and just add shows to the list that it suspects will be my jam. And yes, a show that’s all about celebrities dressing up and singing well-known songs is the most my jam. Man. I thought I could count on my DVR, but when push came to shove, it really let me down.
Sing Your Face Off is such a dream. Celebs. Costumes. Choreography. Elaborate sets. Background dancers. Next-level karaoke. Competition. I'm salivating and perspiring. Who's on the show? The five celebrity contestants: Lisa Rinna, China Anne McClain, Jon Lovitz, Landry Fields, and Sebastian Bach. HNNNNNGH.
But wait! Those aren't the only celebs on Sing Your Face Off. There are CELEBRITY JUDGES! Debbie Gibson, Darrell Hammond, and a guest judge are the folks givin' the scores. The guest judges: David Allen Grier, RuPaul, Carnie Wilson, Richard Simmons, Tom Arnold, and Carmen Electra. HNNNNNNNNNNNGH.
The celebs perform famous songs and are judged by other celebs. Did you see all of the names tied to this show?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?! I LOVE THIS SHOW AND I'VE NEVER WATCHED IT. How do they win? I don't know. What do they win? I don't care. Is there a winner? Yes, we're all winners. What's the point? MAAAAAGIIIIIIIIIC.
Here’s the thing: There are only six episode. And two of the episodes aired Saturday. And it looks like ABC is going to plow through two episodes a week. It'll only be on TV for three weeks, AND WE ALREADY LOST ONE OF THOSE WEEKS.
May we not miss the next four episodes.
Rinna performing "...Baby One More Time" should be enough to get you on board:
Canceling any and all Saturday night plans. Nothing can compete with Sing Your Face Off. Sorry I'm not sorry.
