TBI Formats: Sing Or Spin

Sing Or Spin

Sing Or Spin

Distributor: Endemol Shine International

Producer: Endemol Shine Group

Broadcaster: Hunan TV (China)

This dizzying new music entertainment format pulls no punches in letting its contestants know exactly how they are scoring.

The hopefuls sing their hearts out on a unique spinning stage that lets them know whether their performance is managing to impress. Those singers who know how to hold a tune are rotated to the centre of the stage ready for the next round, but those who sound more like a strangled cat are given a goodbye spin out of the door.

In the first round, the contestants have just 60 seconds to win the approval from at least half of a panel of celebrity judges, then they must gain the support of the studio audience. If they make it that far then the hosts will decide their ultimate fate.

The show, which was showcased at MIPCOM in October and is now being formally rolled out to buyers, has been developed as part of Hunan TV’s Biu Project – China’s first pilot production programme.

Lester Hu, head of format and international business at Hunan TV, says: “Sing or Spin is a milestone co-development which reinforces our strategy to partner with international content creators to bring original Chinese TV formats to the global market.

“As we continue our hunt for fresh new format ideas that work in China and the rest of the world, it’s fantastic to launch our third primetime entertainment show developed through Biu Project.”
