Cantando por un Sueño (literally "Singing for a dream") is a former segment inside the Argentine television program Showmatch, and now an independent TV show broadcast on El Trece.

On the contest, a non-celebrity "dreamer" (man or woman) who in addition must be a professional singer, is accompanied by a celebrity for some weeks of a singing competition. The couples are awarded points by a panel of judges, who give scores from 1 to 10, and those with the fewer points have to face the public vote to continue in the program.

As of May 2012, the show is in its fourth season and the panel of judges continues to include icons of the Argentine musical industry: Valeria Lynch, Óscar Mediavilla and Patricia Sosa. Journalist Marcelo Polino, who also serves as a judge in Bailando por un Sueño and Soñando por Bailar, is part of the panel of judges too.
