New season of 'Killer Karaoke' gets super-freaky with cow brains -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you think getting up in front of a crowded bar to sing is difficult, then you probably wouldn’t do well as a contestant on truTV’s Killer Karaoke.

The ridiculously hilarious and slightly demented competition show returns Feb. 20 for a new season with new host Mark McGrath. Contestants attempt to sing karaoke hits without missing a word while facing some extreme and bizarre challenges.

This year, Killer Karaoke is upping the ante with a fresh new format: Each episode’s competition will begin with six contestants singing an opening number, after which they will be ranked based on a scoring system. The highest-ranking players will earn advantages throughout the show, such as deciding who goes first, picking their challenges, and sometimes even choosing what obstacles their opponent will face. But the ultimate goal is winning over the audience, who will be voting throughout the competition. When all is “sung and done,” the top two contestants must face each other — as well as their biggest fears — in a final head-to-head battle. The singer with the highest score will then win the weekly cash prize of up to $10,000.

Check out this exclusive clip from the new season with contestant Lamar doing his best Rick James while some super-freaky things get dropped on his head. Warning: The clip is both hilarious and a little gross if you don’t like cow brains.

'Killer Karaoke': TruTV's new singing competition is 'American Idol' meets 'Fear Factor' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Think Blake Shelton and company let The Voice contestants off too easily? TruTV agrees.

Next month, the cable network will premiere a new singing competition — with a killer twist. Every week, Killer Karaoke will challenge contestants to perform hit songs while simultaneously completing squirm-inducing physical challenges, like fending off attack dogs or getting dunked in a tank full of reptiles. Host Steve-O watches as the singers attempt to hit the notes and complete the tasks, because karaoke isn’t uncomfortable enough as it is!

Don’t worry, though, the winner gets to take home $10,000 — so it isn’t all that bad. Think of it as American Idol meets Fear Factor, with a dash of Jackass thrown in for good measure.

The new reality series doesn’t debut until late November, but you can check out an exclusive sneak peek of the show right here. The following clip features a woman tasked with getting through Carrie Underwood’s karaoke standard “Before He Cheats” while dipping her hand in a box of snakes and poking her head into a skunk cage.
