Syco and Thames have today (August 21) unveiled a new music show for ITV titled Your Song. The show, hosted by Emma Willis, will air on the network this autumn in a prime-time slot on ITV and will feature a host of music’s biggest stars.
The show is set to celebrate the lives of real people who have done something extraordinary – and see them being given the performance of a life-time from some of their favourite artists. Your Song will be executive produced by Amelia Brown (Britain’s Got Talent) and Sally Wood (BRIT Awards). Your Song has been commissioned by Siobhan Greene, head of entertainment commissioning, broadcasting, ITV.
Speaking about the show, Emma Willis said: “This is such an amazing show to be part of... imagine seeing somebody you love, and who is so deserving being surprised with the performance of a lifetime by their musical hero! I think there'll be plenty of tears, hugs and happiness!”
Nigel Hall, global head of television for Syco Entertainment, said: “Your Song is an extremely exciting project that we have been developing for some time. We are now delighted it is coming to fruition. And we are sure it will bring surprise, entertainment and emotion to everyone at home. We all have that special song which means the world to us – and it will be really exciting to see superstars perform them for their biggest fans.”
Richard Holloway, managing director, Thames, added: “We’re very excited to be making Your Song for ITV. It’s a really warm, heartfelt show celebrating the lives of real people and rewarding them with the performance of a lifetime from one of the music industry’s biggest stars.”
The annoucement of Your Song follows on from last month's news that BBC One is launching a brand new live, primetime music TV show.
