How does I Can See Your Voice work?

I Can See Your Voice works by contestants having to guess who they believe is a good singer.

However, they don’t get to hear the contestants sing.

Instead they must use their intuition to weed out the good from the bad singers.

If they guess correctly – they will win a cash prize. If the last mystery singer turns out to be a good singer, the contestants wins £10,000.

They are given help from a team of celebrity judges.

The comedian said: “On paper, I thought, ‘Is this going to work?’ But it works beautifully.

“I looked forward to being on the studio floor and seeing the relationship between those three develop, and I loved it when they started arguing amongst each other.”

Who are the celebrity judges?

The celebrity panel is made up of comedian Jimmy Carr, former Big Brother star turned This Morning host Alison Hammond and former actress turned talent judge Amanda Holden.

Amanda has said of the show: “It kind of goes against everything we as a society have been taught, which is, ‘Try not to judge anything by its appearance.’

“But that’s exactly what we’re doing, because it’s all we’ve got.”

A source told the Mail Online that they believe Alison and Amanda’s on-screen chemistry and banter is a driving force for the success of the show.

The source said: “Amanda and Alison’s genuine on-air chemistry has proved to be a ratings winner with the [latest episode] peaking at 5.1 million. It’s a runaway success!”
