This is going to be interesting. ABC just announced a musical spin-off of its popular The Bachelor franchise and it’s going to debut in April.

Dubbed The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart, the show will reportedly feature 20 single men and women, who are either musicians or people in the music industry, looking for love through music. They will live together, sing together and go on Bachelor-style dates that are themed around music.

According to Deadline, after the couples commit to each other they will be “tested through musical challenges, including live performances judged by top names in the music business.” The couples with the highest scores get to stay until only one couple is left standing.

The announcement has left many Bachelor Nation fans wondering if previous contestant Jed Wyatt, who is an aspiring country singer, will return to the small screen for The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart.

“I have so many jokes. Anything can happen. Tune in to find out,” ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke told reporters on Wednesday at the network’s TCA presentation.

It has yet to be confirmed if longtime Bachelor host Chris Harrison will join the show or who the guest judges will be.

The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart will premiere on April 13 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
