MTV Set To Crash In With New Karaoke Game Show
There's a new sing-along show coming to town, and it could crash into your life when you least expect it.
MTV's "Crash Karaoke" will literally pop up in various locations, such as fast food restaurants, and "challenge people to karaoke battles for cash." They'll seek out brave volunteers to sing it out and deem a winner based on the crowd's reaction, sans judges.
"Contestants will be asked to spin the crash wheel to randomly select a style of music to perform," said MTV. "A mix of hit songs [will] serve as the soundtrack for the series, from current tracks and global anthems to the most iconic karaoke throwbacks from the '80s."
The show will be hosted by Hannah Rad and Dylan Landon, and the 30-minute format has been given an initial run of 10 episodes. It will roll out on MTV International later this year.

"'Crash Karaoke' is an innovative twist on the traditional game show," said Bruce Gillmer, head of music and music talent, Global Entertainment Group, Viacom. "We're excited to disrupt everyday life in some of the most unlikely locations and pass the mic to the most fearless performers — from the great, to the outrageous and cringeworthy — and bring our audience along for the ride."
