FremantleMedia Sweden is dropping the needle on a music competition quiz format for Swedish pubcaster SVT’s Saturday night primetime slot.
The 4 x 60-minute Q the Music (pictured) will see two teams of celebrity guests battle it out over five rounds of musical multiple choice in order to be crowned champion. Questions will range from “guess the intro” to unusual music trivia while also zeroing in on one specific musician.
Each time the celebrity contestants are encountered with a question, two light-up runways will illuminate with four light pulses to correspond with a potential answer. Challengers must jump onto the correct pulse to score points for their team, with more points being allotted to players who move the quickest.
The series will also feature surprise guest musicians who will take the stage to perform their hits.
Home-viewing audiences will also be invited to play along via a dedicated mobile app – created by interactive firm Monterosa – that will uncover the nation’s leading music masters.
“This show is entertaining for the whole family, fusing a lively party atmosphere with a fast paced competition for the crown of ultimate music buff,” said Blankens, EP for the series, in a statement.
