What Is 'I Can See Your Voice' About?

The show is a musical guessing game show. One contestant is presented with six singers and must determine if they are a good singer or a bad singer without ever listening to them sing!

Instead, they must use a series of clues, lip-syncing karaoke, and other challenges in order to try to determine if the singer is a good singer or a bad singer. The goal of the game is to eliminate all of the bad singers to bank points before the final round. Although each round was worth $10,000 dollars last season, that number has gone up! Players can now earn $15,000 dollars by correctly identifying a bad singer this season.

After five singers have been eliminated, the player can bet their winnings that the last singer remaining is a good singer. The last singer will then perform a duet with a celebrity guest. The duet will either produce a harmonious melody... or have people at home reaching for their remotes to change the channel!
