What we're watching: See Tituss Burgess in the Trailer for SING ON!

Hosted by the hilarious and talented Tituss Burgess, "Sing On!" is a karaoke-lover's dream. In each themed episode, six contestants belt out the biggest hits from that genre while being judged by a vocal analyzer comparing their vocal performance to the original artist's. The more they sing in tune, the more cash they add to a collective jackpot worth up to $60,000.


See you bright and early tomorrow, BroadwayWorld!
