Fox has greenlit a revival of musical game show “Don’t Forget the Lyrics” hosted by Niecy Nash for next season, which will also be available for streaming on Fox Entertainment’s free, ad-supported Tubi platform. The original version of “Don’t Forget the Lyrics” aired on Fox from 2007 to 2009 and was hosted by Wayne Brady. A syndicated revival from 20th Television aired from 2010 to 2011, hosted by Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath.
The logline: On “Don’t Forget the Lyrics,” contestants choose songs from different genres, decades and musical artists. They’ll sing alongside the studio band as the lyrics are projected on screen – but suddenly the music will stop, and the words will disappear. Then they have to continue with the missing lyrics. Sing nine songs correctly, and the final 10th tune is worth $1 million.
Niecy Nash recently hosted season five of “The Masked Singer,” filling in for Nick Cannon.
