    Hosted by Nick Cannon, THE MASKED SINGER is a new celebrity singing game show featuring panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke.
    Based on an international format, and already a viral phenomenon with over half a billion fans worldwide, THE MASKED SINGER features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity.
    With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Ranging from Grammy Award winners to legendary athletes, and everything in between, the singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing his or her true identity. It’s not a “whodunit,” it’s a “whosungit!”

    Alien- The most attractive one, according to the judges
    Poodle- Most talented female non- professional singer (I think, if I’m wrong correct me)
    Unicorn- Most auto tuned singer (sorry unicorn)
    Hippo- Second most talented male non- professional singer
    Deer- most talented male non- professional singer
    Lion- Most pretty costume. (She’s also got a incredible voice) and the most attractive contestant according to mE
    Raven- Second most talented female non- professional singer
    Pineapple- most unique voice
    Bee- Most “Soulfull” voice

    The most important thing to consider here is if there will be a LIVE BAND. The reason why the Korean original is so good is not just because the contestants are great, but because the arrangement with the live band is amazing.
    I see dancers here, not a live band. Please dont focus so much on extravagance but on the music instead. The difference in culture and what is popular really shows here.

    • DragonFox84
      DragonFox84 5 months ago

      @Mariana Ortega other countries take and/or make their versions from america and america does the same. its good money to do if something is very popular. i hear ya though....i think we all get it that this show started in korea lol.

      they may have a live band but not where you can see them. either way, its gunna be bigger budget and more on looks since american media is big on production even for tv shows.

      orlock20 6 months ago +8

      If there is a prize then the show can't do that because the FCC has banned cheating and fooling the public in a game show. This happened because of an old quiz show. This guy kept winning and the ratings kept going up. To keep the ratings high, the show would provide the contestant with the answers. When the ratings started to go down, the show stopped giving him the answers and then the contestant publicly complained about it. The FCC then stepped in and created that rule.

      Rune Yes they are, next season they will be 12 fresh new contestants

    • ibkristykat
      ibkristykat 5 months ago

      so I'm guessing they pit 2 against each other each episode and eliminate one each episode.... maybe? and maybe by the end you have to I.D. 1 of 2 people to get to the last one you juuuust can't quite I.D.??? hmmm

    • TheSportsGuru
      TheSportsGuru 5 months ago

      @Rune Aha. I'm not entirely sure how this version works, but it definitely seems like it will be a lot different than that, you're probably right.

    • Rune
      Rune 5 months ago +2

      @TheSportsGuru no, the original korean format, king of masked singer, has two-episode "generations" of eight contestants, filmed over one 13-14 hour recording. the first episode is the contestants battling each other in duet battles, a live audience vote, and then each eliminated contestant gets a solo round where they reveal their identities. the second episode is the remaining four contestants going up against each other in solo battles, then the last man standing gets to challenge the current king of masked singer (a contestant from a previous generation, usually someone who just usurped the throne, although some contestants have kept the throne for over five generations). two options of the generation ending: either the last man standing usurps the throne or the king is safe for another generation. if fox is keeping the same 12-member generation for the whole season and only eliminating and revealing them one episode at a time... this is going to be a dramatic change of pace.

    • TheSportsGuru
      TheSportsGuru 5 months ago

      @Rune Wasn't that how the original format worked? Even so, it's not too big of a change I would imagine.

  • Swann
    Swann 6 months ago +3

    The Lion is Jennifer Lopez, 100%. She sounds a little like Carrie Underwood with all the Autotune, but Carrie is at least 4 months pregnant, has had 3 miscarriages in the past and there is NO WAY she would take any risk recording anything of this size right now. Listen again to the video featuring the Lion's vocals, and picture J-Lo. And to the one person who said it was Sia lol you're drunk.

    • Beth F
      Beth F 5 months ago

      maybe its J Lo lip syncing to Ashanti's vocals again

    • DragonFox84
      DragonFox84 5 months ago

      this show was recorded months ago. so its possible but carrie has a little thing in her voice that i dont think most hear that i didnt hear this time. im thinking J Lo or christina ...shes holding back a little but it sounds like her more.

    • Matthew Sullivan
      Matthew Sullivan 5 months ago

      I feel like they aren’t going to be someone so busy and famous as JLo, she couldn’t commit to a whole season of this, especially with her filming, and Vegas residency. I think that’s it’s Dinah from fifth Harmony. It sounds just like her and fifth harmony just broke up and Dinah’s career didn’t take off like camilas and normanis. She’s a great performer and singer and she has the time to put towards this show.

      @orlock20 have you even seen the Korean and Thai versions. It's nothing like a standard singing show. A lot of the people who appear on the show are celebrities and not regular citizens looking for stardom. Go watch the originals before you comment

      @Pramort Phonsakkhwa wtf fo you mean they dont do outfits, the Outfits they Pick are to Match their Mask, America's Version is Flasher maybe becuz its either Custom Made by the Show for the Artist, i think in Korea they make their own Mask

    • tamamaka

      I think the main difference will be USA will focus more on who the mystery person is rather than the music itself. Korea is the opposite. Just a guess.

      Thais even don't have the copyright for the show and why they keep trying to say something trampling the original verse like that?
      You don't respect the original verse at all.
      Unless Thais invented costume or mask, you can't even show off with the show.

      @Golden Sone but Obviously as u can Clearly see the US is doing a Different Version, only 4 Celeb Judges, i think Ryan was jst a Guest Appearance, just to Surprise Judges, the US Judges wouldnt know shit who it is if theyre from Korea

    • Golden Sone
      Golden Sone 5 months ago +1

      @Paul William But in the Korean version they had Ryan Reynolds appear in one episode. It isn't unlikely or unfair because it's not like the judges get paid for guessing right or anything, just the satisfaction of being right. So it isn't really out of the question if they did bring in one Korean singer at some point, it would just need to be a more well known person like Psy or someone from BTS so they don't have a blank stare still questioning who they are looking at

    • Paul William

      b-wolf 95 It’s not really “ripping off” if they bought the rights to it. Plus it’s a mixture of the korean and Thai version. Korea has more cute and easy to take of masks/outfits while Thailand has straight up costumes that’s really a wow factor
