Beste Zangers, formerly De beste zangers van Nederland (English: The Best Singers (of the Netherlands)), is a Dutch reality television show by public broadcaster AVROTROS (a merger of AVRO and TROS, both part of the Netherlands Public Broadcasting). The first series was aired between 5 July and 30 August 2009 and was hosted by Edsilia Rombley. She was first replaced by singer and actor Victor Reinier (2010, 2011) before Jan Smit became the permanent host in 2012.
In each series a number of well-known performers alternate as the central artist who picks songs out of their own repertoire to be sung by the others. The original performer judges the “covers” of their songs done by the participants.
The show format has since been used in other North European countries: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Lithuania and Estonia.
