“Superstrelas” is the name of RTP’s new talent show to watch with the family on Sundays. The show is set to premiere on July 21st, after “Telejornal”. The show, hosted by Sílvia Alberto, will be broadcast live for 10 weeks.

The judging panel will be attended by actors Jéssica Athayde and José Carlos Pereira, who have also participated in similar formats. The former in “Dancing with the Stars” and the latter in “A Tua Cara Não Me É Estranha”.

The judges are also joined by singer Mimicat, known for representing Portugal in Eurovision (2023) and actor Pepê Rapazote, currently filming for the second season of “Rabo de Peixe”, on Netflix.

The fun begins when the contestants start imitating their musical idols in trios. Everything counts — the hair, the look and even the mannerisms. The contestants will have the support of Sérgio Alxeredo for their visual transformations.

Later, with the qualifiers and final gala, the best will be chosen. This is a Portuguese adaptation of “Starstruck”, a competition on the British channel ITV, broadcast between 2022 and 2023.

It is a format similar to “Chuva de Estrelas”, from SIC, presented by Catarina Furtado, José Nuno Martins and Bárbara Guimarães. Between 1993 and 2000, it revealed several talents, one of them being Sara Tavares.

“It’s not every day that you see RTP investing in a new format and I’m very happy that it’s live. It’s the way of working that I identify with the most”, highlighted Sílvia Alberto during the presentation to the press. The presenter also said she hopes “that ‘Sara Tavares herself’ will take to the stage”.

The artist passed away in November last year and was the first winner of “Chuva das Estrelas”. From then on, she continued to build a successful career, having won the Festival da Canção in 1994 with the song “Chamar a Música”.
