Hit Me, Baby, One More Time

Hit Me, Baby, One More Time is a 2005 reality show first aired by ITV on British television and later, as a new version, by NBC in the United States; both were presented by Vernon Kay. During each programme, five former pop stars sing their biggest hit along with a cover version of a contemporary hit. Each week one winner is picked from each show by a phone vote (in the British version) or a studio-audience vote (in the American version), leading to the grand final when the overall winner can release a single featuring both songs (in the British version) or have $20,000 donated to a charity of their choice (in the American version). The show's title comes from a line in the Britney Spears song "...Baby One More Time". The show proved to be a summer hit for NBC hitting the top spot in the ratings on its first outing. For the U.S. version, some critics argued that the show's objective wasn't entirely accurate since a few of the bands shown were performing without their original lineup (such as Animotion and A Flock of Seagulls), thereby seemingly reducing these performers to anodyne simulacra of themselves.
