Format[edit]

Expert panel[edit]

To assess and train the potential Marys and judge them during the live shows, an expert panel was chosen. The panel will include:

Weekly format[edit]

The show opens with a group number by the Marys. Each Mary then performs a song, with feedback provided by the panel and Nijholt. The public votes for the contestant they wish to keep in the show. After the results of the public vote have been processed, the two Marys with the least number of votes enter a "sing-off". Nijholt then chooses which Mary from the "sing-off" to save each week. The eliminated Mary has her umbrella and coat stripped off by the surviving Mary and then takes the lead in their sing-out medley of "Een klein schepje suiker (A Spoonful of Sugar)" and "Alles kan als jij het (Anything Can Happen)".
