Former SKID ROW vocalist Sebastian Bach was one of five contestants on ABC's latest singing competition, "Sing Your Face Off", where he had to take on the identity of some of music's famous faces such as into Willie Nelson, Lady Gaga, Adam Levine from MAROON 5 and Freddie Mercury of QUEEN. Unfortunately, after four weeks, Sebastian had the lowest score and was sent home. On June 14, however, Bach returned with fellow contestant, actor/comedian Jon Lovitz, on the show's season finale for a rousing rendition of LMFAO's "Sexy And I Know It". Check out video footage of the performance below.
ABC launched "Sing Your Face Off" on May 31. The show is described as a talent variety competition where celebrities are transformed and trained to perform as a legendary musical icon. Over the course of the series, five personalities — Bach, Lovitz, basketball star Landry Fields, singer China Anne McClain ("A.N.T. Farm") and actress Lisa Rinna ("Days of Our Lives") — take on the identity of an iconic music performer. Debbie Gibson and Darrell Hammond are the primary judges.
Bach spoke to Afterbuzz TV about his experience on the show, including his controversial departure. Bach explained: "I was supposed to stand there and get eviscerated… and I just split… Let me paint the picture for you, my manager was running after me… and I literally… ripped my nose off and threw my nose off, so there's like a nose on the floor."
The former SKID ROW singer wanted to do the show because it gave him a chance to sing and do something different. "It's all about the song for me, for me that's why I show up… everything I do musically has to be designed for repeated listening, because people collect my songs and the collect my albums," he said.
Despite repeatedly mentioning he was unhappy with Gibson's scores for him, Bach enjoyed getting to know the celebrity contestants and creating friendships. "It's a fun show," he said.
