Doble Kara 2020 is an edition of Eat Bulaga!'s unique singing competition for individuals who can sing equally well in both male and female voices while also dressed half-man and half-woman. The segment premiered on 2 March 2020 and concluded on 7 March 2020.

The week-long competition was one of the 15 Tatak Eat Bulaga! segments revived as part of the noontime show's 40th anniversary celebration.[1] The short-lived and rapid-fire revival of the segments aimed to give the new generation of Filpinos an opportunity to experience the show's several iconic and original contests. Winners were scheduled to face off in the Tatak Eat Bulaga! Grand Showdown in mid-2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic postponed the final competition indefinitely.

Renz "Victoria" Perez, the 30-year-old singer from Cavite City, Cavite, was hailed as the grand winner at the end of the competition. He impressed the audience with his rendition of the 1994 soundtrack "Forever" by the Filipino band Passage.
