'Sing On!': Mary wins karaoke contest in 'Party Playlist' and takes home $45,500 prize on Netflix's reality show
Who doesn't enjoy a good karaoke session? While we stay cooped up at our homes, thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Netflix seems to be going out of its way to ensure we stay entertained during these dark times. Netflix's latest show 'Sing On!', has all the fun of a reality show, without any drama. Hosted by Tituss Burgess of 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' fame, this karaoke competition show will surely leave you hooked to it.
The pilot episode of the eight-part series featured Tituss in his element. Without wasting any time by giving us introduction videos to the contestants, or making us watch their backstory, the show kicks off with Tituss declaring that the winner of the episode could take home potentially up to $65,000! He then introduces us to the six lucky singers who will be competing in this rather interesting karaoke session. The theme for the first episode was 'Party Playlist'. So, some fun party bops were played, and the contestants had to sing them, while a vocal analyzer judged their performance by comparing the notes of the contestant with that of the original singer's on the track.
Mary, a PhD scholar in nanoscience, instantly caught everybody's attention, alongside Ceci. For the first round, the six contestants had to sing along to 'Can't Stop Feeling'. All the contestants did an exceptional job, while Ceci managed to get the highest score on the vocal analyzer. So, she was declared the winner of the first round and was safe from elimination. The rest of them were at risk for elimination and had to vote amongst themselves to decide who would be given the boot. At the end of the first round, only five contestants remained, but they did manage to rake up some money thanks to their great performance. This process of elimination continued until the final three contestants were left. They were then eliminated based on their vocal analyzer scores.
Ceci managed to win two rounds, while Mary hadn't won any. These two finalists went neck to neck for their final performance to Taylor Swift's 'I knew you were trouble' track. At the end of the round, Tituss revealed that Mary scored higher than Ceci! Mary managed to take home the prize money of $45,500 for her incredible performance. When asked what she would do with her prize money, she expressed her intention of giving back and donating it to a charity.
'Sing On!' is available for streaming on Netflix.
