The upcoming show, Don’t Forget the Lyrics!, is a revival of a popular TV show of the same name. The concept is simple yet a little difficult to follow.

The official synopsis of the show reads:
“Everyone thinks they know the words to the most popular songs of all time, but when there’s a million dollars at stake, will contestants be able to keep singing when the music stops? Or will they be at a loss for words? Emmy Award nominee Niecy Nash hosts the all-new revival of the popular game show DON’T FORGET THE LYRICS!”
The winner of the singing competition series will receive a whopping cash prize of $1 million. The synopsis further reads:
“If they sing nine songs correctly, they are presented with a No. 1 hit and sing the final missing lyrics for the top prize of $1 million.”
Don’t Forget the Lyrics! Episode 1 will air on Monday, May 23 at 8.00 pm ET on FOX. Created by Jeff Apploff, the show is executive produced by Apploff, Nash, Rupert Dobson, Garry Bormet, and Julie Pizzi.
