HCM CITY – “My Name Is…”, a new music game show based on the format of Dutch-based media company Endemol International, will air on HCM City Television (HTV) early next month.
In the show, 21 competitors will impersonate famous Vietnamese singers of different generations, including Hương Lan, Mỹ Tâm, Phương Thanh and Sơn Tùng M-TP.
The contestants will perform the singers’ hits on stage, while a team of designers and stylists will help them look like their characters.
A team of 100 judges comprising music fans, critics and journalists led by actors and singers Chí Tài, Trấn Thành and Hari Won will evaluate their performances.
Four contestants with the highest score will enter the final. The grand winner will receive a cash prize of VNĐ300 million (US$13,600).
Comedic actor Đại Nghĩa, who hosts numerous TV game shows, will be the host. Music critic and journalist Nguyễn Minh Đức is the music director.
Nguyễn Hải, project manager of Đông Tây Promotion – the show’s producer, said: “The show will help local audiences learn more about the domestic music industry and different music genres from bolero and pop music from the 1990s and electronic dance music.”
The 13 episodes of the show will be broadcast live on HTV 7 at 9pm every Saturday, beginning on May 7.— VNS
