Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

It's all in good fun, but the series is a good reminder of the fact that can’t always discern talent from how people look or act. 

Positive Role Models

The celebrities on the show want to help contestants win. Some people have beautiful singing voices, but others do not. 

Violence
Sex

Some of the popular songs being performed contain some suggestive lyrics, but they are not performed in a sexual manner. 

Language

Words like "hell" are sometimes used, but the overall banter is mild. 

Consumerism

Lots of popular songs featured throughout. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that I Can See Your Voice is a game show featuring contestants and celebrity panelists trying to pick out bad singers without hearing them sing. It’s lively and overall family-friendly fun, but some of the song lyrics talk about love or are slightly suggestive, all of which will go over younger kids' heads. On occasion stereotypical comments are made about how people look versus their potential singing talent.

I cannot get beyond the mathematical discrepancy

So, if the 'contestant' has 5 opportunities to win 10,000.00 to equal 50,000.00, by successfully picking 'bad' singers (5 times) with 6 perf... Continue reading

Weird

It doesnt make any sense AT ALL!!! The point of the show is to eliminate bad singers to get 10,000 dollars if it is a bad singer but what if they are all good s... Continue reading

I can’t see your voice

Unlike shows such as America’s Got Talent, The Voice, or Songland this show just doesn’t compare. I didn’t like The Masked Singer. I don’t like any of Fox’s sho... Continue reading

What's the story?

Hosted by Ken Jeong, I CAN SEE YOUR VOICE is a game show where being a bad singer is a good thing. Each episode features a contestant who is presented with a group six individuals who allegedly have great singing voices. S/he/they must eliminate a bad singer during each round. The catch? The decision must be made without ever hearing them sing. With the help of actress Cheryl Hines, vocalist Adrienne Houghton, and a panel of rotating celebs, the contestant looks for clues during lip-syncing performances, interviews using digitally enhanced voices, and other weird moments, to determine if the person is really a singer. Each correct elimination earns $10K. During the final round, the contestant can opt to keep the cash they’ve already won, or give it up in hopes of winning $100K by revealing that the final performer has a great voice. 

Is it any good?

This odd, lighthearted series, which is adapted from the South Korean hit of the same name, features lots of lively banter and impressive performances. Many of the singers have beautiful voices, but untalented crooners’ off-key numbers are both funny and enjoyable -- mainly because it means that the contestant won some cash. 

The celebrity panel is committed to helping contestants win as much money as possible. Because of this, its members are also excited and anxious about who can belt out a beautiful ballad, and who will screech through it. But these nail-biting moments are a big reason why I Can Hear Your Voice is so entertaining. It’s worth tuning into if you’re just looking to have some fun. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the the kinds of things people look for on I Can See Your Voice to determine if someone is a good singer. Since they can’t hear then sing, what do they rely on? Are any of their observations based on assumptions or stereotypes?

  • Are you a good singer? What do you like to sing? Would you want to appear on stage and sing badly on TV, even if it was for fun?
