Sing Your Face Off (ABC, Saturdays, 9/8C) is not your typical singing competition. It’s more of transformative experience for its competitors – five celebrities who will be transformed into different iconic performers each week for the run of the series. By transformed, I mean down to their walk, their talk, their style – and then they will perform as their subject. Adding to the zest of the series, it is hosted by John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Arrow) and primary judges are Debbie Gibson and Darrell Hammond.
The show’s first set of competitors includes: Sebastian Bach/from the band Skid Row; Landry Fields/NBA’s Toronto Raptors; Jon Lovitz/comedian, actor, singer; China Anne McClain/Disney Channel’s “How to Build a Better Boy”, “A.N.T. Farm;” Lisa Rinna/”Days of Our Lives”). For more on this unique format, follow the jump. Sing Your Face Off premieres on Saturday, May 31st.
The casting for Syfy’s upcoming Mega Python vs. Gatoroid just gets better and stranger. Micky Dolenz, member of the popular 1960s music group The Monkees, is joining fellow pop icons Debbie Gibson and Tiffany in the cast of theSyfy Saturday Original Movie, currently filming in Los Angeles.
In the movie, a production of The Asylum, Dolenz portrays a celebrity singer hired by Tiffany for her fundraiser to save the Everglades.
InMega Python Vs Gatoroid, there’s a crisis in the Florida Everglades as giant pythons are threatening the alligator population. Gibson portrays a fanatical animal rights advocate who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades where the pythons become mega-sized.
Tiffany plays an over-zealous park ranger worried about the growing ecological damage. To save her beloved alligators, she employs dangerous methods, setting off a war between the species – and putting her on a collision course with Gibson.
In the ‘80s pop singing sensations Debbie Gibson and Tiffany were hit-making pop princesses who, if you were to believe the lowlier tabloids, had developed a rivalry. Whatever the case, the two former tween idols will bury their alleged pop princess rivalry to co-star in the new ripped-from-the-headlinesSyfy Saturday Original Movie,Mega Python Vs Gatoroid, which will go into production later this month for a scheduled 2011 release.
