HOT FROM FOX...

CELEBRITIES HIT THE HIGH NOTES ON SPECIAL EDITIONS OF "DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS!"

Boyz II Men, Bret Michaels (Poison and "Rock of Love"), Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon) and Kimberley Locke (AMERICAN IDOL) Compete for Charity

Gloria Gaynor and Kenny Loggins Make Surprise Guest Appearances

The stakes are high and the competition fierce with all-new, all-star episodes of DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS! airing Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Recording artists Boyz II Men, Bret Michaels (Poison and "Rock of Love"), Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon) and Kimberley Locke (AMERICAN IDOL) compete for charity, and Gloria Gaynor and Kenny Loggins make surprise guest appearances on the show.

The star-studded episodes kick-off Thursday, Feb. 21 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), when host Wayne Brady welcomes the most successful male R&B group of all time, Boyz II Men, who will compete for the Lili Claire Foundation and the TJ Martell Foundation. Boyz II Men close the show with a medley of Motown hits "Same Old Song," "Reach Out" and "End of the Road" from their latest CD, "Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA."

All-star episodes continue on Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) (dates to be announced). These episodes will be headlined by Bret Michaels competing for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Kevin Cronin playing for the MusiCares charity, and former AMERICAN IDOL contestant Kimberley Locke singing her heart out for Camp Heartland, a charity that benefits children and their families facing HIV/AIDS.

Additional celebrities appearing this spring include Gloria Gaynor performing her inspirational anthem "I Will Survive" and Kenny Loggins surprising a contestant on the show who is his biggest fan with a performance of "I'm Alright" and then teaming up for a duet of "Footloose."

On DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS! contestants choose songs from different genres, decades and musical artists. They then take center stage to sing alongside the studio band as the lyrics are projected on screen, but suddenly the music stops and the words disappear. Will the contestants belt out the correct missing lyric or will they freeze under pressure? After each correct response, contestants must decide to "stay and play" or "take the money and run." If they sing nine songs correctly, they are presented with a No. 1 hit and one final missing lyric for the top prize of $1 million. It's that simple: 10 songs, 10 missing lyrics, 1 million dollars.

DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS! is produced by RDF USA and Brad Lachman Productions. Lachman, Jeff Apploff, Chris Coelen and Greg Goldman serve as executive producers. Michael Weinberg and Bill Bracken serve as co-executive producers. The show was created by Apploff.
