Developed by Endemol, "Your Face Sounds Familiar" sees contestants impersonating iconic singers. Each celebrity gets transformed into a different singer every week, with a "Randomizer" assigning them artists who may be deceased, older or younger, or of the opposite sex.

Three judges, along with the contestants, decide which celebrity gave the most convincing impersonation through a song-and-dance number. The winner will receive a cash prize for a charity of their choice.

Scheduled to premiere on March 14, the local version will have Billy Crawford as host, and singers Toni Gonzaga, Jed Madela, and Gary Valenciano as judges. As for the eight celebrity contenders, here's a look:
