CMT has teamed up with The Gurin Company and JUMA Entertainment to produce 10 all-new one-hour episodes of the karaoke-style singing competition, The Singing Bee. Hosted by comedic actress Melissa Peterman (Reba), it premieres June 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, following the second season premiere of the talent competition series, Can You Duet . Taped on location in Los Angeles, The Singing Bee tests contestants’ knowledge of lyrics to well-known songs. Those who fail to accurately sing the correct lyrics are eliminated from the competition. New to CMT, the show will blend a mix of 60 percent country music with 40 percent popular favorites from other genres.
