Based on the South Korean programme of the same name, I Can See Your Voice sees the contestants take part in a variety of rounds including lip sync performances and clued-up videos to try and convince the panel of judges that they’re really the good singers among the bunch.
They will also be joined by a set of special guest artists, which include Alexandra Burke and Ronan Keating in the first episode of the series, who they will perform with in the final round as they reveal once and for all if they can hold a tune.
Depending on which way the judges vote, the players could end up going home with a huge prize of £10,000.
So who are the judges of the new BBC music game show?
