The Celebrity Singing Bee is an Australian game show combining karaoke singing with a spelling bee-style competition.
Each episode sees six brave celebrities stepping into the spotlight to test their knowledge of the lyrics to our favourite hits, and to try to win up to $50,000 for a charity of their choice. One wrong word though, and they're out of the game!
Host Tim Campbell is in his element as the consummate entertainer, and each week musicians who gave Australia the hits we all love to sing will perform live in the studio accompanied by music maestro Dorian West and his band. But the key element is fun, with an audience ready to clap, cheer and dance in the aisles!
