John Barrowman Hosting ABC Singing Contest Show

Actor John Barrowman speaks at Starz "Torchwood" Panel during Comic-Con 2011 on July 22, 2011 in San Diego, California.

Recent Scandal guest star and Torchwood mainstay John Barrowman will host a reality contest show for ABC called Sing Your Face Off. According to EW, five celebrity ("celebrity") contestants will "take on the identity of an iconic music performer each week," attempting to impress judges Debbie Gibson and Darrell Hammond. The contestants are Jon Lovitz, Lisa Rinna, Sebastian Bach, NBA player Landry Fields, and Disney Channel actress China Anne McClain, so place your bets accordingly. As horrendous as this all sounds, maybe SYFO is the first step toward a musical special starring the cast of Scandal! Not a musical episode of the show, mind you, just a one-off special. Maybe with holiday songs?
