Top Game Shows of All Time (P.5) - Don’t forget the lyrics

02-12-2020

(Worldkings.org) The primary difference between Don't Forget the Lyrics and other music-based game shows is that artistic talent (such as the ability to sing or dance in an aesthetically pleasing way) is irrelevant to the contestants' chances of winning.

Don't Forget the Lyrics! is a sing-along game show that originally aired on Fox from July 11, 2007 to June 19, 2009, hosted by Wayne Brady and produced by RDF USA, part of RDF Media. 

It spawned the Don't Forget the Lyrics! game show franchise, and the launch of the show prompted NBC to move up the launch of their similar game show The Singing Bee. The show's contestants compete to win $1,000,000 by correctly recalling song lyrics from a variety of genres.

In this show, a single contestant is prompted to complete song lyrics for increasing amounts of money. After each correct answer, the contestant can continue playing, risking what has already been earned, or quit the game and take home all the money he or she has already earned.

If the contestant continues playing and correctly completes nine song lyrics, he or she will be given a lyric from a number 1 hit to complete. If the contestant completes the final lyric correctly, he or she wins the grand prize, which was $1,000,000 on the Brady version, and is set to be $50,000 on the McGrath version.

The primary difference between Don't Forget the Lyrics and other music-based game shows is that artistic talent (such as the ability to sing or dance in an aesthetically pleasing way) is irrelevant to the contestants' chances of winning. In the words of one of their commercials prior to the first airing, "You don't have to sing it well; you just have to sing it right."
