It was the season premiere of “Sing Your Face Off“, the brand new reality show / impersonation contest / singing competition for celebrities. The contestants were transformed into singing legends and performed for a panel of judges including Darrell Hammond, Debbie Gibson and guest judges David Alan Grier and RuPaul. The show is unbelievably weird. They’re billing it as wild, but let’s face it, its just as bizarre a concept as you can think of. That’s not to say there aren’t a few laughs. so we gathered the best moments for you to watch in clips.
Not only is Jon Lovitz still funny– but it turns out he can sing. He was selected to impersonate Pavarotti and he blew the doors off the joint by walking out (in ridiculous make up and prosthetics), belting out a tune, and absolutley flooring the other contestants and the judges. Lovitz’s Pavarotti skyrocketed him into first place which was nothing short of a miracle after his shitty Elton John attempt in Episode 1.
Lisa Rinna channeled way more than Britney Spear’s pigtails and school girl uniform doing Britney Spear’s “Baby, One More Time”. She also carried on, begged for attention and jumped on the lap of any guy who gave her a few points.
China Anne McClain (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne) is just adorable. She’s 14, talented and takes on Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary”. The song and the hair both may have been too big for her, but she’ll grow. Spoiler alert: no way this kid doesn’t win. If there’s a such thing as a ‘Sing Your Face Off Break Out Star,’ then she is it.
