This is definitely going to be interesting to see adapted for the U.S. audiences. Fox has taken onto the challenge of creating an American version of the equally bizarre and beautiful show known as King of the Masked Singer in countries like South Korea and Thailand.
The debut of the new music competition with a twist was announced during the summer TCA press tour, and it is set to premiere in January of 2019.
The show, just like the original, will be featuring stars in very creative full-body costumes that will be singing for a panel of judges having to guess who the person behind the ‘mask’ is.
The Masked Singer’s panel includes Nicole Sherzinger, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, and Ken Jeong.
Meanwhile, the host is set to be Nick Cannon.
As the trailer is already out, you can see for yourself if you’re up for the madness or not.
Apparently, the American version will start with 12 celebs on its first season.
The anonymous bunch will be competing to stay as long as possible on the show, with one eliminated each episode and only then having its identity revealed.
EP Rob Wade says we should be looking forward to ‘household names’ behind those kooky masks.
He promises ‘65 Grammy nominations, 16 Emmy nominations, four stars on the walk of fame, and four Super Bowl rings,’ in total amongst them.
‘I feel very strongly that this is a very well-known cast. I think most of the people, all of you in here, will recognize all our masked singers,’ Wade went on to tease.
To give a little hint about the kind of A-listers that might be stopping by, Ryan Reynolds competed on the Korean version, to promote Deadpool 2!
The actor proved he has a beautiful voice as well, when he performed Tomorrow from Annie while having his identity hidden behind a unicorn mask. Such a Deadpool moment!
