John Barrowman to host ABC's celebrity singing competition
"Torchwood" star John Barrowman has been announced by ABC as the host of their new competition series "Sing Your Face Off," which will see five celebrity contestants take on the identity of an iconic music performer each week. He'll be joined by judges Darrell Hammond (former "SNL" cast member) and pop singer Debbie Gibson.
It's not just the hosting and judging talent that the network's lined up, either. Entertainment Weekly reports that the show's contestants are ex-Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach, comedian Jon Lovitz, Toronto Raptors player Landry Fields, teen Disney Channel actress-singer China Anne McClain and actress Lisa Rinna.
The six-episode series is produced by Endemol USA, based on a successful international format. ABC has yet to announce an air date, but the ramp up in casting seems to indicate a potential summer debut.
