After the success of its first season, the top-rating “Your Face Sounds Familiar” is back on television beginning September 12.
A new batch of 8 celebrities which include Sam Concepcion, KZ Tandingan, Kakai Bautista, Michael Pangilinan, Myrtle Sarrosa, Eric Nicolas, Kean Cipriano, and Denise Laurel will undergo weekly transformations to closely match the music icons they are impersonating for them to get the highest score from the jurors.
Billy Crawford will be back to host the show together with Season 1 grand winner Melai Cantiveros as the new “KatroFamiliar.”
“It’s all about just having fun and doing things that you would not expect doing for everyone to see. It’s all about enjoying the weekend and changing the weekend habit of viewers. We were given the chance to return, and we hope to make people happy again,” said Billy.
Melai will serve as the special “KatroFamiliar” who will add fun and laughter to each episode. Watch out for her as she transforms into different personalities who will join the eight celebrity performers in their post-performance gimmicks.
According to Melai, she is even more excited to return to the program this time because she will not need to perform under extreme pressure. She also thanks the program for giving her a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that changed her life.
“It really changed my life. This time, I really appreciated it because I worked hard to win, especially with the prosthetics and singing. As a performer, I now have a newfound confidence. I overcame my fear of coming on stage and facing the audience,” shared Melai.
Just like in the first season, there will be no weekly elimination in the program and the performers will undergo acting, dance, and vocal trainings plus a complete make-up transformation to closely match the look and moves of their assigned music icons.
For each episode, the performer who receives the highest score will be awarded a cash prize, half of which will go to his or her chosen charity.
Aside from Billy and Melai, “Your Face” jurors Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano, world singing champion Jed Madela, and Megastar Sharon Cuneta also return to the show to weigh in on the performances of the celebrity performers.
