When most of us think of singing our hearts out to our favorite tunes, we picture ourselves someplace where we can be alone, like in the shower, and not, say, in the office. But TLC is betting that some folks won't mind singing in front of their coworkers on the channel's new reality competition, The Singing Office.
The show is described as "a tongue-in-cheek singing competition that pits different groups of employees against each other" and will be co-hosted by Dancing With the Stars alums Mel B. and Joey Fatone. Mel B. told the AP that the show isn't meant to be a serious singing competition, but rather "gives people a break from their everyday lives to have some fun with their co-workers."
Still, the details sound nerve-racking, especially if you look around your office right now and try to picture doing the following with the person in the cube next to you:
In each episode, Brown, 32, and Fatone, 31, surprise employees at two separate workplaces with impromptu vocal auditions. They then pick the five best singers. The makeshift groups are trained by pros to perform a song-and-dance routine and compete in front of a studio audience.
What do you think? Are you secretly hoping your office is chosen to sing on national television? Or would that be simply mortifying?
