On Don't Forget the Lyrics! contestants choose songs from different genres, decades and musical artists. They then take center stage to sing as the lyrics are projected on screen, but suddenly the music stops and the words disappear. Will the contestants belt out the correct missing lyric or will they freeze under pressure?
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.
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."
The original ran from July 11, 2007 to June 19, 2009. The second version will premiere in September 2010 and will be hosted by Mark McGrath.
Don't Forget the Lyrics! can be seen on Tuesdays at 8:00pm and 8:30pm on KFVE the Home Team.
