Mongolia to host ‘Sing Your Face Off’ reality show

Contestants of 'Yag Tuun Shig'

Education TV is set to host “Yag Tuun Shig” (Sing Your Face Off) reality show starting May 8. “Sing Your Face Off” is a reality show where celebrity contestants impersonate singers.

The show challenges celebrities to perform as different iconic music artists every week. They are then judged by a panel of celebrity judges. Each celebrity is transformed into a different singer each week, and performs an iconic song and dance routine well known by that particular singer.

A total of eight contestants, including Camerton boyband’s L.Gan-Erdene, actress N.Munkhsoyol, model E.Enkhbold, singers B.Maraljingoo, model S.Sarnai, singer P.Bayartsengel, E.Enkhzol and Amarkhuu will participate in the show. The contestants are awarded points from the judges based on their singing and dance performances. After the jury vote, the contestants have to give a set of points to a fellow contestant of their choice. The total score of each contestant is counted by summing the points from judges and contestants’ votes. Three judges will participate in the show, and the contestants will compete for 50 million MNT.

On Monday, Education TV and Endemol Shine held the opening ceremony for the show in the presence of executive producer of Education TV G.Khankhuu, and Endemol Shine’s creative consultant of international productions Wil Kilsdonk and Endemol Shine’s regional consulting producer Norfa Jalil.

“Yag Tuun Shig” will be aired every Sunday on Education TV. The reality show is hosted in 39 countries all over the world, and Mongolia will become the fortieth country to host the TV show.
