The Singer Takes It All

16th October 2014

Endemol UK television’s live singing game show ‘The Singer Takes It All’ for Channel 4, is the first British show, where for the first time ever, viewers have taken total control of a game show, becoming both judge and jury via the real-time interactive App.

Presented by Alan Carr, ‘The Singer Takes It All’ is a revolutionary new series, which was shown on Channel 4 during August 2014, where all the action is placed literally in the audience’s hands.

The App featured hundreds of performances from people all around the UK, belting out all their favourite tunes.

On 31 July 2014, a day before the first live show, Channel 4 revealed that over 1 million votes had been cast via the official App. Since its launch, the App has been downloaded around 35,000 times.

During each of the four shows filmed live every Friday night, the armchair judges at home used the App to rate performances a ‘HIT’ or a ‘MISS’ with the results being declared just seconds later.

Contestants performed on a moving stage (a unique 18m long conveyor belt) manipulated by viewers who could vote up to four times during each performance using the App.

The conveyor belt was assembled from standard stocks of Canning Conveyor’s Tumbleator™ range which uses ‘state-of-the-art technology’; proven within the film & TV game-show industry for adaptability and versatility in length, maximum safety for users, low noise, variable speeds and speed of installation. 

If judged a ‘HIT’ the hopeful singer moved forward towards the Gold Zone at the front of the dynamic stage to continue their song. The contestant who stayed in the Gold Zone for the longest amount of time then went through to the final where they won up to £15,000. The commentator of the show (only seen as a giant pair of lips) is the former X-Factor contestant Brenda Edwards.

However, if they failed to impress and the majority of viewers judged them a ‘MISS’ they were sent backwards to the stage, down the track and out of the iconic double doors!    

The most well-liked singer on each show then took to the track one more time for the chance to walk away with a cash prize.

The show ended up being dominated by a singer named Steve Dorsett who appeared on 3 of the 4 shows, winning all 3 and netting himself a total of £42,600.

The free App was created by Endemol UK and was built by Chunk and incorporated new live-voting technology developed by Tectonic Interactive.
