Take a deep breath, walk on to the set amidst the dry-ice to the canned applause of the studio audience, get ready for the cameras and meet your very own host Buzz and his sexy sidekick Rose
Grab hold of your buzzer – it's the red button for the quick response rounds, colour coded buttons for multiple choice questions
Get ready for the tunes as Buzz draws from his record collection of over 1000 clips from International chart topping tunes
Watch out for trickier questions – you'll be quizzed on trivia including the song title, year of release, artists name or anything else connected to the song in question
Think smart - Buzz gives you the chance to dance rings around your opponents, steal points and make it to the top of the leader board.
There are eight different rounds that will give you the opportunity to prove your music muscle:
A nice simple round to start off with which lets you build up some points to lose – or build on - in later rounds.
If you see the right answer appear onscreen, then Buzz in as fast as you can. Beware though; you'll need lightning reactions to beat your competitors.
The quicker you buzz, the more points you'll see.
Whether you know the answer or not is irrelevant. More importantly, who do you think doesn't know? This is your opportunity to get your rivals to answer the questions you don't want to.
Pass the Bomb
Answer the question correctly to pass the bomb to the next contestant, but don't get caught holding it as it goes off.
Time to seek revenge on those that have crossed you in the past.
Good hand-eye co-ordination and an aptitude for inane trivia are all that's required for this round. This is a pass or play round, so Buzz in if you want no-one else to have the chance to answer the question if you know it, and pass if you don't.
Look Before You Leap
The final round, so there is everything to play for here. Buzz in as soon as you know the answer, but watch out as hastiness could be a bad move: if you don't know the answer, you'll lose points.
And finally, a game-show would not be a game-show without the ubiquitous Tie-Breaker where you'll be quizzed all the way to the leader-board. Just remember, points make prizes!
