'Sing On! Spain' is a game show and a talent contest rolled into one.

Sing On! Spain is a game show in every sense of the word. The participants have to sing hit songs in front of a live band, only for the state-of-the-art voice analysis system to decipher whether they have what it takes or not.

According to Decider, the first round features six contestants. 

How much money the winner takes away at the end of the night depends on how well the contestants fare during the first round. If everyone manages to match the notes in the original song they were given, the prize will be €30,000.

In addition, the person to deliver the most accurate performance gains immunity from being voted off. 

The rest of the crowd, however, have to battle it out in the next round. Here it's the contestants who have to decide whose performance they find the best. The person they collectively vote off has to go.

In the following rounds, the voice analysis system makes its grandiose return — and it's this piece of tech that gets deployed to weed out the contestants who don't do as well. 

In the final round, the singer who gained immunity gets to choose one of the songs they and their opponent have to perform. The participant to win the round takes home the prize. 

Sing On! Spain is available on Netflix now.
