Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids is a spin-off of the singing and impersonation competition for celebrities Your Face Sounds Familiar. The show debuted on January 7, 2017 on ABS-CBN. The show is hosted by Billy Crawford, with Sharon Cuneta, Gary Valenciano and Ogie Alcasid serves as the show's judges.[1]

In January 2020, ABS-CBN announced that the show will have a third season after Sharon Cuneta renewed her contract with the network.

Overview[edit]

The show is part of the Your Face Sounds Familiar franchise and is based on a similar competition format in Portugal called A Tua Cara não me é Estranha: Kids, but however, this spin-off focus on children celebrities.

Format[edit]

The show challenges celebrities to perform as different iconic music artists every week, which are chosen by the show's "Randomizer". They are then judged by the panel of celebrity judges.

Each celebrity becomes transformed into a different singer each week, and performs an iconic song and dance routine well known by that particular singer. The "Randomizer" can choose any older or younger artist available in the machine, even a singer of the opposite gender or a deceased singer.

The contestants are awarded points from the judges based on their singing and dance routines. The total score of each contestant is counted by summing the points from judges. In case of a tie, the judges will choose the week's winner.

Whoever is at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the each show receives a cash prize for a charity of their choice and a further grand prize for the entire season's champion.
