MANILA - Apart from its eight celebrity contenders, ABS-CBN's "Your Face Sounds Familiar" boasts big-name judges, including returning Kapamilya star Sharon Cuneta.

The film and music veteran will be joined by award-winning singer Jed Madela and concert performer Gary Valenciano. The show, which will debut on March 14, will be hosted by "It's Showtime's" Billy Crawford.

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.

Taking the stage as contenders are 6CycleMind vocalist Tutti Caringal, "Flordeliza" star Jolina Magdangal, actress-singer Karla Estrada, acoustic singer Nyoy Volante, "Pinoy Big Brother" winner Melai Cantiveros, R&B perfomer Jay-R, "Dream Dad's" Maxene Magalona, and indie film star Edgar Allan Guzman.
