About The Show
The program consists of fourteen queens must show their skills to characterize a female character, dance and sing on stage. Along with the demonstration of their skills, the program will show the life story of each of them, providing details of an unknown world for Chilean screens. All this, so that only one manages to become the best transformista in Chile. To measure the abilities of the participants, in each episode there will be 4 tests. These are:
- Artistic Test: In this first test the participants have to compete, generally, characterizing some television personality or pop culture. Depending on the episode, the immune or the nominee is determined.
- Impersonation Test: In this second test, the participants have to compete, generally, maintaining the characterizations of the previous test and adding to this a small demonstration of acting, singing, dancing or lip sync. Depending on the episode, the immune, the nominated or the expelled one is determined (first episode).
- Singing Gala: In this third test the participants have to compete, interpreting a song of their own choice. At the end of each presentation, each member of the jury assigns points from 1 to 7 to the participant, depending on the quality of their presentation. Finally, the participant with the lowest score will go to the last test of the episode; Elimination Duel.
- Elimination Duel: Last test of the episode, in which the losers of the singing challenge face each other. Both competitors sing a song of their own choosing again. Whoever loses will be removed from The Switch.
