TF1 in France has ordered a local version of Global Agency’s singing format Is That Really Your Voice?.
The show will be known as Good Singers in France and sees teams of celebrity judges attempting to guess contestants’ voices from their appearances and hearing them talk.
Production has started on the French version, which will debut 17 July and be hosted by TV personality Anthony Lambert.
The format is based on the original format created in 2013 by Izzet Pinto, founder of Turkey’s Global Agency. Described as a ‘comedy mystery gameshow’, it requires two teams to guess the most talented singers to win money for charity.
Pinto said: “The idea for the show came from watching the singer Susan Boyle, who rose to fame on a talent show. That inspired me to create this format. Her voice did not match her look and created big surprising moments for the audience.”
