MTV To Premiere New Singing Competition Series ‘Copycat,’ Watch The Teaser

Think you can sing like your favorite music star? MTV will soon premiere a series titled "Copycat" that will feature fans competing for a prize while emulating stars like Ne-Yo, Miley Cyrus, Lil Wayne and Alicia Keys.

"In each episode of "Copycat" six contestants pay tribute to their celebrity icons in a "cat fight battle," where two fans who idolize the same artist are pitted against one another in a sing off in front of a live studio audience. The audience is not able to see the singers at first so the contestants must rely on their voices alone to impress them and win their votes. Some contestants may be able to fool the crowd into thinking they are the real thing while others will leave the audience running for the door. The two final performers will then undergo makeovers and transform them into their celebrity idols, for one last performance of the idols' songs in an effort to win $5,000," reports MTV.

Hosted by Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls), "Copycat" is due to premiere Monday, June 2 at 6:30 pm ET/PT on MTV.
