After the phenomenal success of its first run, the top-rating “Your Face Sounds Familiar” is back on television to give viewers a weekly dose of top-notch entertainment beginning September 12.
With its new batch of celebrity performers, the program is poised to serve up even more astonishing transformations and surprises. It will be hosted again by Billy Crawford, with the first “Your Face Sounds Familiar” grand winner joining him 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.
The lives of the eight new celebrity performers will also surely change as they face the challenge of impersonating different local and international music icons.
Don’t miss the weekly transformations of the Absolute Performer Sam Concepcion, the Soul Supreme KZ, the Dental Diva Kakai Bautista, the Harana Prince Michael Pangilinan, the Playful Angel Myrtle Sarrosa, the Komikero ng Masa Eric Nicolas, the Rebel Rock Royalty Kean Cipriano, and the Sultry Heiress Denise Laurel.
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.
