The eight celebrities participating in the international hit music competition “Tu Cara Me Suena” (Your Face Sounds Familiar) will own the stage and the hearts of families with jaw-dropping transformations and performances, all for a good cause starting on Sunday, March 27, at 8:00 p.m. ET on Univision.
Each week, celebrities will work with choreographers, vocal coaches, staging and acting experts to deliver memorable performances of legendary music idols from all genres. Then, they will go into “el clonador” (the clone machine) for an extreme makeover and physically transform into the music icon they will impersonate. The judges will rank each performance every night, and celebrities will be able to give extra points to fellow participants. At the end of each gala, the star with the most points will win $5,000 for their charity. In addition, the celebrity with the most accumulated points at the end of the season will be declared winner and receive $50,000 for their organization.
