Al pie de la letra

‘Al pie de la letra’ (By heart) is an entertaining quiz show that challenges participants to prove that they know the full lyrics to well-known songs by heart.

Hosted by Javier Estrada, each day the show’s six contestants face off for a prize of up to 50,000 euros. Through the different stages of the game, the participants are gradually eliminated, narrowing the challenge down to just one contestant.

Here the key to triumph is the same in every test: knowing the lyrics of loads of songs, word for word. Sometimes competitors are asked to continue singing the lyrics when the band stops playing; other times they must complete the written lyrics of a song on the screen, and still others, their task is to unscramble the song lyrics, again on the screen. In the final round, a single contestant must complete the lyrics to six songs to walk off with the grand prize. Yet a prize of 1,000 euros is already his/hers to start, simply for making it to the last round.

Each Friday, TV viewers will enjoy a championship match among the week’s winners in a marathon show, playing song after song. What’s more, the Friday show features a special guest artist who also takes part in one of the games. And once again, the overall winner has the chance to walk away with 50,000 euros.

‘Al pie de la letra’ also features a group of first-rate singers: Guillermo Martín, Sandra Polop, Mercedes Durán and Carles Torregrosa.
