Sebastian Bach to compete in new reality tv singing competition

Sebastian Bach will compete in a new ABC-TV reality series, “Sing Your Face Off.”

The program will feature five celebrity contestants taking on the identity of an iconic music performer each week.

Hosted by actor John Barrowman ("Torchwood", "Arrow"), “Sing Your Face Off” will see Bach compete alongside basketball star Landry Fields, comedian Jon Lovitz, singer China Anne McClain ("A.N.T. Farm") and actress Lisa Rinna ("Days of Our Lives").

Debbie Gibson and Darrell Hammond are the primary judges, and scheduled guest judges including David Allen Grier, RuPaul, Carnie Wilson, Richard Simmons, Tom Arnold and Carmen Electra.

From the hours in the makeup chair to the days spent with choreographers and vocal coaches, each show will feature the complete transformation — not just physical — the celebrities will embody everything about the assigned icon — their walk, their talk, and their distinguishing mannerisms leading up to the live performance in front of the studio audience, according to the show’s production notes. Viewers will get the chance to see each of the celebrities portray multiple musical performers during the series — such as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Pavarotti, Pitbull, Britney Spears, and Tina Turner, to name a few.

ABC will launch "Sing Your Face Off" on Saturday, May 31 from 9 to 11 p.m.

Bach’s new solo album, “Give ‘Em Hell”, is due April 22 in North America (March 18 in Japan and March 25 in Europe).

The rocker recently released the video for “Temptation”, the lead single from the project, which features Duff McKagan, Will Hunt and Devin Bronson in the clip, along with John 5 and Bobby Jarzombek on the studio version.

Bach will play a series of four US east coast concert dates to launch the album; he’ll performe at B.B. King’s Blues Club in New York on April 24 before playing shows in New Jersey, Maryland and Maine the same week.
