‘Sing On!’ Season 1: Netflix Review

Aside from personal performances in my car or living room, I avoid public singing at all costs. Can it be that I can’t hold a note? Yes—that’s actually it in a nutshell. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love to watch others sing, especially karaoke. The good, the bad, it’s all great when you see someone giving it their all on stage.  

Review

Sing On! is Netflix’s newest competitive show—offering audiences top-notch karaoke competitions. The twist? Contestants must collectively earn their jackpot (up to $60,000 an episode) by performing each song as close to the original as they can.

The beauty of Sing On! is in its low stakes competition. Each week six new contestants compete for up a cash prize. There are five rounds of competition, in the first three contestants vote to eliminate one member in the last two rounds the least accurate singer is cut. Because each episode brings new contestants, there’s little attachment to a particular singer. Similarly, the audience does not participate in voting—meaning all the audience needs to do is sit back and enjoy the show. With a host like Tituss Burgess, that’s pretty easy to do.

Burgess keeps things light and fun, adding a bit of witty repartee between songs. His personal style is also greatly appreciated, adding to the overall glam of the show.

But karaoke is all about song choice and performance. Sing On! succeeds at both. From classics hits to new sensations, Sing On! proves to have a superior choice of karaoke songs. Even better, the show encourages strong performances with a one time $500 prize to the performer who gives it their all during each episode. You’ll be grooving through season one with ease.

The Bottom Line

Go ahead, sing along with Sing On!—you know you want to. Sing On! is the not most sophisticated show on television, but it offers a good amount of easy entertainment.

Score:

What's New

Fear Case #3 Review

Fear Case is a mystery with characters worth caring about. As the nightmarish tale nears the end of the arc, everything matters, and no one is safe.

Geiger #1 Review

As origin stories go, this one about a nuclear-powered superhero is clever. It manages to feel fresh and packs enough action supplemented by sentiment to make this a worthy read.

Nocterra #2 Review

An impressive second issue, Nocterra #2 further defines the world and characters of Nocterra while also making clear the danger that's nipping at our protagonists' heels. Another must-read issue.
