The show challenges celebrities to perform as different musical artists every week, which are chosen by its "Randomiser", and they are judged by a celebrity panel. Each celebrity performs a song-and-dance routine associated with a particular singer. The randomiser can choose an older or younger artist, one of the opposite sex (except during week one) or a deceased singer.


Contestants are awarded points from the judges (and each another) based on their singing and dancing. Each public vote triggers donations to eight charities.

Judges award points (up to 12 each, for a possible grand total of 48) to the contestants, who have five points to give to a contestant of their choice. These bonus points are awarded after all the contestants have performed. The total score of each contestant is the sum of the judges' and contestants' votes and the televotes. The winning contestant at the end of the each show receives €1000 to donate to a charity of their choice, and a €15,000 grand prize is awarded to the series champion in the final week.


Forty-one contestants have competed. Two have competed in two seasons, five[4] in three seasons,[5] and Maria Buză in four.[6]

Italicized contestants have participated in the most-recent season.
