Great Pretenders (not to be confused with the 1955 and its 1987 remake hit song by The Platters and the late Freddie Mercury [of Queen fame] respectively as The Great Prentender) was a half-hour musical game show in which young performers lip-sync to pop hits. On this program contestants lip sync and dance to their favorite songs for the chance to win prizes as their performances are judged by a live studio audience. The one with the most votes is inducted as the top "great pretender".
