Simon Cowell will head up the panel of judges in a new singing-based gameshow for ITV, it has been announced.
Walk The Line - developed by Cowell and his Syco production company - will see a number of musical acts compete for judges' approval and viewer votes, with the top two then going head-to-head to be crowned champion of the episode.
The winner will then be offered a cash sum to exit the competition or take the choice of competing again in the next episode, where an even bigger sum of money will be on offer.
"We wanted to develop a show which will give the contestants a life-changing cash prize if they win," said Cowell.
"Each show there will be a champion who must make a vital decision: either cash out then and there or stay in the contest to compete again the following night and have a chance to claim the huge prize.
"It's the kind of decision that will have viewers on the edge of their seats – real event TV. I'm very excited at giving musical talent the opportunity to transform their lives like never before."
The show is expected to be stripped across six nights on ITV later this year.
