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 would lip-sync to pop hits.

Premise[]

On this program contestants lip-synced and danced to their favorite songs for the chance to win prizes as their performances were judged by a live studio audience. The one with the most votes was inducted as the top "great pretender".
