Shania to be a judge on "Starstruck" UK singing competition show - Series 2 | 2023


Actual legend Shania Twain is replacing Sheridan Smith on Starstruck

By Adam Miller | Metro - UK | August 30, 2022

In news we can’t quite believe but we are absolutely thrilled about, actual legend Shania Twain is joining ITV’s Starstruck. 

That couldn’t impress us much more, actually.

The five time Grammy winner responsible for timeless bops Man I Feel Like A Woman and You’re Still The One has been added to the panel alongside Adam Lambert, Beverley Knight and Jason Manford.

Starstruck is the Stars in their Eyes of 2020s, with singers competing to be the best version of a popular artist.

‘Shania is one of the all time music greats, not to mention a fabulous personality, so it’s an honour to welcome her to the Starstruck panel alongside Adam, Beverley, Jason and of course Olly at the helm.’ Said Katie Rawcliffe, head of ITV Entertainment commissioning.

‘We are over the moon to welcome music legend Shania Twain to our fantastic Starstruck panel,’ said Cat Lawson, creative director.

'She is an absolute trailblazer who has collaborated with everyone from Elton John to Harry Styles.

‘Shania will bring so much fun to our Saturday nights we simply cannot wait.’

The country queen will be replacing Sheridan Smith who quit Starstruck after one series.

An ITV spokesperson told Metro.co.uk at the time: ‘We would have loved Sheridan to have returned to the show but she has sadly had to decline due to scheduling conflicts with a new acting project.

‘The team absolutely loved working with her, she was a fantastic judge and provided some invaluable feedback to the contestants.  We wish her all the best.’

Starstruck returns to ITV in 2023.

Series/Season 1 aired weekly on Saturday night February 12 - April 2. All the shows were pre-recorded except for the final show in April which aired LIVE. Shania said she'll be heading to the UK soon. So Series/Season 2 will probably start taping in October or November.

Who is on the new Starstruck judging panel?

International superstar Shania Twain, a five-time Grammy winner, joins ITV’s Starstruck for its second series.

One of the top-selling female country-pop artists of all time, the Canadian singer-songwriter will join the Saturday night entertainment programme, which sees members of the public transformed into music icons.

Her hits include Any Man of Mine, That Don’t Impress Me Much, You’re Still the One, and Man! I Feel Like A Woman!.

"Yes, she is going to be in the chair and we are very excited. We can't wait for you to watch it."

In July Netflix released Shania Twain: Not Just a Girl, a new, career-spanning documentary on Twain’s life and career with an accompanying Highlights albu

On the news of Shania Twain joining Starstruck, Jason Manford said: "That is so exciting! That impresses me much!

"Can't wait to meet her. Just watched a documentary on Netflix and she seems like a right laugh so I can't wait to meet her.

"What an absolute legend, Shania Twain. Along with Bev and Adam as well and, of course, Olly, it is going to be a wicked series."

Fresh from appearing in musical Sister Act, Beverley Knight plays Pub in the Park St Albans on Sunday, September 11.

Adam Lambert said: "I just can't wait to join season two of Starstruck. I can't wait to see Olly and Beverley and Jason again, and I'm hearing through the grapevine that we have maybe a country superstar. Shania Twain. Hello! That is amazing. That is crazy."

Katie Rawcliffe, head of entertainment commissioning at ITV, said: “Shania is one of the all-time music greats, not to mention a fabulous personality, so it’s an honour to welcome her to the Starstruck panel alongside Adam, Beverley, Jason and of course Olly at the helm.”

Starstruck launched on ITV in February 2022, with a consolidated 4.7 million tuning into its first episode, making the show one of the biggest new entertainment commissions of the year. 

Produced by Remarkable Entertainment, a Banijay UK company, contestants undergo the ultimate ‘superstar experience’, shedding their normal personas to become global icons, all courtesy of an elite team of stylists overseeing an extraordinary on screen transformation.

Series one featured performers impersonating stars including Harry Styles, Barbra Streisand, Elton John and Cher. 

Cat Lawson, creative director of Remarkable Entertainment, added: "We are over the moon to welcome music legend Shania Twain to our fantastic Starstruck panel.

"She is an absolute trailblazer who has collaborated with everyone from Elton John to Harry Styles. Shania will bring so much fun to our Saturday nights we simply cannot wait."

Shania to be a judge on


Shania and the other judges performed an opening number together and Shania performed her song ‘waking up dreaming’ on the show. I think this means the series will air soon.
