Here's everything you need to know about Starstruck, including the panel and the prize.
When is Starstruck on TV?
The singing contest was first announced nearly a year ago, but Starstruck now has an official launch date.
It will debut on ITV on Saturday, 12 February at 8.30pm and run for seven episodes.
What happens in Starstruck?
While the premise may be a little like Stars In Their Eyes, the format has been jazzed up to make it more like the singing contests we're used to seeing now.
The contest sees superfans of music stars transformed into their idol for the night, except they will perform in teams of three with each person in the team becoming the same singer.

Ordinary members of the public will battle it out in each heat to get their team of superstar deadringers through to the final by winning the audience and panel vote.
Up for grabs is £50,000 in the grand final, so the superfans have everything to play for while they live out their dream on stage.
Who are the celebrity judges and host?
He said: "I’m really excited to be hosting a big Saturday night show like Starstruck. It ticks all the boxes; it’s about feel-good, family fun which is something we all need right now. The performances should keep us well entertained and I can’t wait to see whether anyone wants to be transformed into me for the night!"
A panel of four famous judges will vote acts through to the final each week, made up of singers Beverley Knight and Adam Lambert, actor and performer Sheridan Smith, and comedian Jason Manford.
Knight said: "Every show we get to witness ordinary people emulate extraordinary icons on a huge scale and I’m so here for it! I’m looking forward to hearing and seeing those spectacular transformations and being a cheerleader for every contestant."
Smith, who has also performed as a singer in the West End and while playing Cilla Black in TV drama Cilla, said: "Growing up, I always loved watching Saturday night TV with my family so I’m thrilled to be joining Starstruck.
"Creating Cilla Black for TV, I know first-hand how much goes into becoming an iconic music star, so I can't wait to see what some of the contestants do with our modern music acts and true icons."
Lambert also has a good idea of the work involved in taking on another artist's songs, having joined Queen to tour with them as their new singer after finding fame on American Idol.
He said: "I am so excited to be involved in Starstruck. I loved the idea from the moment I heard about it, and it’s going to be a lot of fun. I can’t wait to watch people transform into their idols! After the year everyone has been through, let’s come together through creativity and music and have a good time!"
Manford added: "After years of being on stage, judged every night, it’s my turn to sit and do the judging! I adore talented people, so I’m very proud to be part of a show that’s going to let them show off. They're ticking off a super entertaining bucket list moment and we get to be part of it."
Starstruck begins on Saturday, 12 February at 8.30pm on ITV.
