The Masked Singer has a panel of judges and the panel is made up of Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke and Ken Jeong. Nick Cannon hosts. The show features celebrities in elaborate disguises, singing on stage, and the judges have to try to guess each singer’s true identity before it is revealed. According to E! News, the celebrities participating in the show this season have “5 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles combined.”
Judge Robin Thicke recently dished to E! on what he loves about the new show and being a part of it. Thicke said, “What I really like about it is that it’s really the only whodunit—or whosangit—show on television, and the fact that it’s all well-known celebrities … So the people under the mask are really the star of the show. It’s very intriguing, even for my 8-year-old son who I brought to the set, he’s dying to find out who the Peacock is, he can’t wait to find out who the Peacock is.”
Fox reality show producer Craig Plestis recently dished to The Hollywood Reporter about what made him realize that the show was a winner. Plestis said that, “It was flypaper TV right from the get-go. I just knew right away this was a special show. It was unbelievable in its appeal — and the game play, spectacle, family-viewing … [and] it was this huge hit in Asia … If we do the job here, it should work here … When the masks come off, everyone has to recognize that face — or they have to have some huge credibility, either in sports, in entertainment, TV, film, music.” Fans will have to tune in to see what kind of celebrities pop up among the contestants. In the Korean version, Ryan Reynolds actually appeared as a unicorn and performed the song “Tomorrow”. How’s that for a surprise?
