Your Big Break is a talent show featuring contestants playing the role of their song's original singer. The show aired in syndication from September 25, 1999 to June 16, 2001. It was hosted by Christopher "Kid" Reid in its first season (1999-2000) then by Alfonso Ribeiro in its second (2000-2001). It was produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with Endemol and was distributed by Buena Vista Television.


Celebrity sound-(or look)-a-likes compete for cash and prizes. Each contestant is introduced by their real name and the singer they are emulating. They are each given roughly 3 minutes to impress the studio audience with their singing ability and/or likeness to the celebrity. The performances are accompanied by elaborate stage sets, dancers and full costuming. The winner of each show is determined by electronic-voting courtesy of the audience members, with each winner returning at a later date to compete in the grand finals.
