ITV launches its brand new talent show Hit by a star – which is an exciting new singing competition organized by X factor finalist and British pop star, Olly Murrs.
The show will give members of the general public, aka “fans”, the chance to transform into their favorite musicians for just one night. Each episode will feature four teams of three taking the stage to perform a classic from their favorite musical icons. They will then try to impress the judges to make it to the final for a chance to win £50,000.
Before we get started, let’s find out who some of the contestants are as well as the four famous judges.

Meet the candidates
Since it hasn’t been released yet, we’re not sure of all the upcoming contestants, but through some serious research on Instagram, we’ve managed to find some of the artists who are gearing up to make their talent show debut. .
Em announced via her Instagram last week that she would be appearing on the show.
Scrolling through her Instagram, we can see that she is a fitness fanatic who loves to travel and has even visited amazing places like New York, Washington, Ibiza, and Milan.
Lucy also announced via her Instagram telling her friends and fans that she would be appearing on Hit by a star.
Lucy is already a rising singer and she frequently posts videos of herself singing and covering songs through her social media accounts.
The singer is also active on her Tik Tok and describes herself as a dancer and performer.
Just Anne Marie
This is not the singer’s real name, as the only page we could find was to promote her work as a tribute artist to British musician Anne Marie.
Amy is a 19 year old student from London studying at the University of Bristol. Amy is already very well known and has more than 7,000 followers on Instagram and 370,000 on Tik Tok.
The star has already released her own music and debut single “After midnight” is available for download now.
There are many more candidates for me, although these are all we have managed to find so far. Tune into ITV every Saturday to see who’s joining for you.
